Paperclips are perfect. Get a couple different sizes that are ever so slightly smaller than your drill bits so there's room for the glue. Also having a couple different sizes means if you need to pin something larger you aren't still using a tiny paperclip.

Alrighty Skeletor anon here. So I'm thinking about trying my skeleton army with GSC/Nids. Neophytes, genestealers, and magus/primus will rock the skull. Acolyte/metamorph and pure nids will rock a cuttlefish/lictor look with some extra bone stuff. I feel like this could work my main concern is that it will be hard to make skulls/bone conversion bits work with the carapace/shell that all nids have. maybe if I color them the same as the carapace it'll help make it seem like it's apart of their natural armor. Thoughts?

Doing things the way you're doing them is the easiest way to build confidence in not just doing your models as a paint by numbers kit.

Having to mix your colours constantly teaches you how to properly thin and understand the strengths of your pigments.

What did you use for the snow?

Get some actual powdered snow from Woodland Scenics or Secret Weapon.

>> No.55648476

>>55648350
To expand on this, take Woodland Scenics snow or even GW snow, and also buy a bit of Woodland Scenics Realistic water - apply the snow, and while it's drying, add a bit of the realistic water to the, say, 20% around the ends. It'll water it down, and make it look like patched snow that's melting. It's super easy, and looks pretty good.

Complete is a term I use loosely.

I just like painting undead stuff so I've got more models to add to it on the waythat I can use as specific upgraded units or just alternates to replace guys that die and such.

A lot of your speed will come from knowing what order to paint things in.

With the example you posted you could have slapped down a couple quick coats of the yellow on all three paying very little attention to getting it on other parts.

Then you could slap all the armour color down just being careful enough not to hit the yellow.

Then you do the detail work.

It looks like you did the yellow after the metallic work which would make it harder than it needed to be.

>> No.55649227

It was originally supposed to be just a normal non metallic purple but then I changed my mind. But I agree with that I should have done the yellow first.

>> No.55649309

>>55649227
>>55649227
To expand on what the other anon said, one of the best bits of advice I got was "work from the inside out." Obviously it's dependent on the model, but look at the sarcophagus of the dreadnought here, the face plate - best course of action is to finalize the black bits, then move on the next highest surface. Painting the eagle first, for instance, would make it very difficult to get to the inner bits.

That same idea can be applied to your models. Would you finish the helmet, then try and wedge your brush in to work on the face? You could, but it then the paint might slop over, and the helmet you're working on now has a hideous fleshy spot.

Otherwise, kudos. Keep at it anon, and post more pics.

It's the same color all over the model except stuff like the gun and that coat thing and a few white bits here and there.

Coolings units tend to have fins (like you see on a heatsink). They're likely inside the unit but you could damage the cooling unit a bit and expose the fins.

Chiller units may have switchboards to get power. Try making a little switchboard (like a cupboard), colour it orange and slap some DANGER HIGH VOLTAGE labels (or in-universe equivalent) on it. A switchboard may also have power meters, cable compartments, a DCS marshalling box or controls equivalent, circuit breakers (big ones), circuit breaker chasis, indicator lights, key interlocks, maybe a transfer switch. If it has relays or motorization, it would also have an auxiliary power supply nearby. If you choose to damage it, you can even expose some busbars within it.

Given that your chiller looks like an outdoor unit, it probably has a canopy gazebo thing over the fans to stop rainwater. Consider also have some lightning rods nearby as lightning protection. Consider adding mesh/grills over the fan exhaust to stop small animals getting in

They also might be mounted on some sort of railing so a forklift could pick it up and move it around. Might also have some handles here and there that are left over from manufacturing,

Water is often the cooling medium so have some sort of water monitoring/control station nearby. It can be represented with some dials, taps, levers or whatever would make sense in your universe.

If you look at the studio models they usually put heraldry and whatnot on shoulderpads.

I just don't because I don't know enough about the fluff to put heraldry that makes sense.

Part of it is also that they are just nameless faceless soldiers who don't really need identifying marks.

I started with undercoating the models black from below, white from above after priming grey.

Then I gave them all a coat of vallejo Dark Prussian Blue.

After that it was starting at about a 60/40 mix of Dark Prussian Blue to Vallejo Blue Green and did several layers adding a bit more Blue Green each time until it was basically pure Blue Green.

Then I started adding a bit of white to each layer until it was almost pure white and that's when I did the little radial bloom highlights on individual parts of the armor.

After that I gloss coat everything to make the next step WAY easier.

I start poking a wash into all the recessed detail and the gloss coat both helps the wash flow through it AND if I get some on the flat surfaces I can just wipe it off with a finger without damaging all my blue work.


When that's all done, if you're a perfectionist or professional you'd edge highlight all the individual panel lines meticulously. I'm lazy so I just do a more careful than normal dry brush that amounts to basically the same thing.

Most of what I did is just a personal application of the method Angel Giraldez uses to paint all the studio models for Infinity, although he doesn't do the black undercoat, just the white from above, and he goes to a pure white for his final radial highlights. I like my dudes to look a little more subtle than his.

Don't use ratios. Every paint range and every colour in those ranges is different.

You thin until the paint is transparent but not runny. This is especially important with lighter colours.

Most of the painting sections in White Dwarf don't really show you HOW they do things, they're just images after each step with what colour they used and the name of the technique they used.

So I got bored of not modelling while staying with my in laws so I went to my parents' house where my stuff is stored and spent some time converting some Warhammer Khorne guy into a Nurgle Daemonprince. Right wing and forearms are just tacked on for the pic. My concern is the size of the wings. I wanted them small because I want them to look like they assist his running and jumping rather than allow him to fly outright, but I'm not sure if they're too small? I intend to add some Nurgle stuff to them. I won't get another chance to do any work on it for a couple of weeks and would be able to swap them for something bigger, so curious to see what people say. Apologies for the bad lighting.

I'll have to try and file those fingers but it won't be as neat as it could be. I wonder why they went for that, instead of the old design of two completely separate arms.

Not an expert at GS but I would try to do it something like this:
- get marine head, shave away some of the facial features
- add GS and sculpt it into curved rectangular
- either press the slits into GS or make them separetly
- add other small stuff you want to

Dont know if that is helpful at all but meh.

Would these look decent with genestealer cult heads and different arms? They're the closest look to a civillian, but the shit design is putting me off of risking the cost for an infantry pack, which could be better spent on the reliable but boring cadians.

Decades ago, Citadel released a set of Mk VI beekees sculpted by Aly Morrison and the Citadel Design Team. In very early advertisements, da Studio Ladz gave them all names, and they chose the cast of the Adam West Batman TV serial as their inspiration. There's a Brother (Adam) West, Brother (Burt) Ward, Brother (Burgess) Meredith, Captain (Cesar) Romero, Brother (Frank) Gorshin, etc. One of the models was named Brother Craig after Yvonne Craig, the actress that played Batgirl.

A few years later (c. 1990), Citadel published their Blue Catalogue. None of the old marines had fun names any more, just part numbers and descriptions: "Bolter 10", "Power Sword and Bolt Pistol", "Meltagun", etc. Brother Craig, however, was strangely absent; so, if he ever had a proper part number, we have no idea what it might have been.

Fast forward to a couple of years ago, when some clever anon grabbed this picture of Brother Craig and applied the "Kill 'em All Johnny!" treatment to it. Brother Craig looks like he's having a conversation with his bolter magazine the same way Johnny from Ed Edd, and Eddy has with his wooden "friend", Plank.

Then it was all downhill from there ...

I made a similar post on /aos/ a few days ago but I didnt get any help so I thought I'd try here.
I want to make the tassle on top of my elven swordmasters a pink to create a sort of "resurrection of spring" look to my army. My inspiration for the color and potential design for the tassels is a pink rose petal so at the top of the tassle it will be mostly cream or white and then shade down into a more viberant pink.
What's the best way to achieve this? Running a thinned pink wash down the tassels in multiple coats to build up or is there another way? Is this even a good idea?
Pls help.

Where the tassle meets the helmet should definitely be the white point, so you'd basically just glaze the shade of pink you want down the length of it.

If you make the surface area you cover smaller and smaller with each coat you'll get a nice transition to the solid pink.

Looking forward to seeing it.

Posting earlier, in a dying thread, yay.
Rdemptor is pretty much build, decided to just call it a chaos one, or use whatever cybot profile chaos get with that weapon loadout. Originally I considered giving her a sword in the right hand, but the maulerfiend hand didn't look to good next to the normal one, and I would probably mess up trying to recreate a similiar one for the right side, next to building the sword, and I liked how the gatling gun looked.
Same for the small gatling, it won out over an upside down flamer.
while the posability in the arms is nice, I always had the feeling I need one more in either the shoulder or the elbow. Normally the shoulder would only rotate the same way as it does on a cybot, but cutting of the stoppers isn't that hard.
Sorceress had some work done as well, arms look better now, and I can do her hair tomorrow, no pic though.
