Old one is auto-saging

now to do highlights and clean it up

Trying to figure out how to do gold freehand on the loincloth

>> No.39344431

Fine tip gold sharpies / gold brush pens / etc.

Fine scripting/edging/whatever work always goes better with pens. Just be careful about washing over it - or you'll wash it off. A quick brush over of clear coat should hold it fine though.

The picture is a bit too dark to really make out the details and the quality isn't great either.

The orange looks really good with this scheme, but I can't make it if you did gem effects or not.

At any rate, you should take your base color green and the smallest detail brush you can find to clean up those highlights a bit. The edge highlights are supposed to be really thin, but if you go over them with the original green, maybe mixed with glaze medium if you have it, you can create sharp highlights with a better transition.

At any rate, this is WIP, you're here to improve and we're glad to help anyone who is really trying to improve so come back any time with anything you're unsure about.

You should build the Cadians and DKoK separately, then use the models to represent a major engagement where a regiment of Cadians and a regiment of DKoK got mixed together in the chaos of battle.

Or you can do a coalition army with completely segregated squads that represent Cadians and DKoK fighting alongside each other.

Doing eyes is more about creating a dot as to where they should be looking, and trying to understand how eyes actually move.

First step is looking in a mirror and learning how your eyes move.

Second step is actually looking at your eye in a variety of open/close positions. The iris is a rather large circle that consumes a bit less that 1/2 the relative area of the visible eye, so you should work around this concept. This is true for those of a different ethnicity as well, but changes according to how much of the full circle you see.

>> No.39356180

A very simple tip that works wonders is to make sure you pre-wet your brush with water; make sure the brush has been thoroughly wet, 'paint' out a line or two of the water, and then go to collect some paint to use on the brush. Make sure you collect the paint towards the first third, and avoid getting paint higher up. Also, make sure that you're rinsing the brush every so often.

Significantly finer detail brushes, those of size 0 and under, will face this problem more so than larger brushes. This is simply because of the belly. Also, certain types of hair, whether synthetic or not, will sometimes just not cooperate with the paint, or were not formed properly and cause the problem for little reason. Using a paint retarder (something that slows paint dry time) will often work, but not always recommended.

>> No.39356468

>>39356180

Is that really a tip? Do people really just dip a bone dry brush into their thinned paint and start slathering it on the model? That will fuck up bristles so hard.

Rather than painting eyes, you should focus on realizing eyes aren't that big and people have eyelids. Seriously bruh, eyes are the hardest thing to make look good, especially if you're trying to use a brush for the pupil instead of something like a micron ink pen.

Nope, but an xbox 360 controller works for every emulator there is. All nintendo handhelds, PS1, PS2, gamecube, wii, basically everything you can use a controller for. You can usually get a brand new one for under 30 bucks. Don't skimp out and buy a knock off though, they use different drivers and the original 360 is the most used controller on the planet. Even linux has built in support most of the time.

Weren't the plastics updated sometime between 3 and 3.5? The CSM kit was then recut with 4E, The Bezerker kit was probably pretty early though, and what has happened with the other hybrid kits? There's so many resin 3rd party parts there's not much point using the official components.

I wouldn't suggest starting out on something that big, as there's quite a lot of potential to fuck up.

If you've already worked with greenstuff a lot on other smaller projects you might be ok, but otherwise I'd practise on smaller stuff first.

Buy some wire to make the armature, use something cheaper than GS for the base of the model, milliput can work well.

Use GS for all the detail, although sculpting big stuff is a lot harder, you do have more room for adding detail so in a sense it can be easier to make it look nice.

Well, the drawback of artillery emplacements. Better protected, but limited firing arc, thus mainly used for defense, where they knew the direction the enemy was coming from. For the sake of using the logic of Warhammer, we can assume that there are a couple of combat engineer dorfs quickly rebuilding emplacements when needed, but seeing how cannons are not really moved in the duration of the game, it's fine.

The pose is kind of weird. Looks off-balance, and there is no way you would turn your torso away from the dicrection you are running like that, unless you were thoroughly surprised/distracted. In addition to this, while running you will usually put forward the arm opposite to the leg you put forward, unless he is holding his gun forward constantly, in which case he should probably be looking where he's aiming.

Thanks anon.

Luckily I get about ~3000 dollars back from my college this year so I can afford to splurge on a Death Korp army.

Maybe even work on the Necrons-with-LEDs thing I wanted to do.

Why the hell do people in these threads keep implying
>skiitari robes can only be red

This was never the case, apparently you can't into the lore. Red is a prominent color for obvious reasons but look in your codex, it's right there. I like the look of Ryza and those fags are orange.

Looks bretty good so far and where you're going with that axe might turn out cool. I hope you're planning on layering that white though, although maybe you did and the picture quality aint showing it.

Do y'all sometimes go back to strip entire units from your earlier painting days? I'm sitting here with a small cadre of Tau from when I started like 6 years ago and... it hurts to look at.

From tabletop view, they look perfectly fine but when you get even remotely close it's like a spastic kindergartener spunked Vomit Brown all over them.

I still have plenty of other shit to paint from scratch though. Should I bother doing them now or leaving repaints until I have nothing else to paint so I create more work?

Or should I even give a shit at all?

>> No.39370273

>>39370192
It's bothering you, so strip them.

>> No.39370382

>>39370273
It is, yes but not so much that I'm dying to strip them. I could leave them for the very last and keep strips/repaints for when I have nothing left to paint.

Just wondering what people feel with theirs. I know some would leave them as is because it's like a memento or visual example of how far your painting's gotten. The terrible paintjobs become like a nostalgia thing.

Anyone know what's a good Turqoise for this paint scheme I'm going to be killing myself with?

GW has an Edge paint the looks about right, but I'm not sure how these new GeeDub paints are supposed to work and if it'll look good being used as a full-body paint.

On top of that I haven't really bought any paints from any other brands and don't know what's on offer.

>> No.39370437

>>39370382
Doesn't matter to what extent it's bothering you, just that it is. Strip them now so you don't have to later on, and when time comes to paint them up, whenever that is, you can just go straight into it.

If you're in this hobby for the same reason most people in this thread are, it's because you want your army to look good. Why ruin that for "nostalgia". Fix em.
