Well, aside from making your purity seals green, which is what I do fer my ladz in red armour, you could make them a deeper red. In fact, that's the official colour (a red-violet, really) for Blood Angels' purity seals per GW.

Our store has a few good painters, and a few bad ones. There's a guy that I know for a fact who posts in these /wip/ threads, has a classic Blood Angels army that he enters every year.

I generally don't hang out at that GW though. It's the only place that sells Games-Workshop kits in Denton and it's one of the better GW stores I've been to, but it's still a GW and comes with all the trappings that entails.

I'm not sure how they did the blue effect though. Looks maybe like they were actually basecoated in something like stegadon green or maybe the fang, washed (more at the bottom), then drybrushed with a light grey & then white (heavier at the top)

Possible that the blue is a glaze, wash, first highlight or even a trick of the light, though

So as it gets colder and I have mounds of grey plastic to paint, folks have been recommending black gesso.

I've been painting for a while but its been for DnD, not mini wargaming. I'm suddenly frozen trying to pick my scheme out, and I don't want it to be vanilla colored.

Basically I'd go with whatever I feel would look cool on a mini.
Use your favorite color, looks at some artwork, a paintjob on a racing car or your local sportsteam.

If you got your main color the rest is just finding a secondary and the accent.

You can also throw the picture you posted here into Photoshop and just play around with it.
Swap the color channels, slide the hues around, make adjustment layers for selective channel mixing, do a paintover or whatever.

For the last colorscheme I made I just color picked some images I liked and put them into a pallette.

That's what I was planning, working around Purple as the base color. I just wanted to branch out from the possibility of using Yellow as the secondary.

Color theory wise I could do Purple, yellow-orange, and green. Or box it on the color wheel and do Purple, orange, teal, and yellow. I'm just indecisive.

Are there any color suggestions to not field? I know a lot of people have an issue with straight Yellow.

My friend is taking the other half of the box, with a Tan, red, and bone white scheme we worked through together.

Don't forget the tones too. You also don't have to use another color if you don't want to.
Purple and white would be fine. Could fill all the inbetweens with greys, tans or browns or blacks.
As long you take care to make one the clear primary you could also use a blue or even red to harmonize.

There's a lot of stuff you can do.

Personally I like straight yellow btw, but you have to be able to paint it. A lot of people just don't have the patience to do the necessary amounts of thin even coats.

A lot better than many first timers, don't muck it up. Mostly clean, some bits on the backpack could be cleaned up. Like the other posts, throw in some shade. Or if you did, leave more of it visible. You don't want to leave a tiny sliver visible, these models will be seen from around 3ft away when played.

If you don't have a thinner brush, try to pick one up. It makes bits like the eyes a lot easier, less cleanup.

While I can't paint the missing models from my AoP board in a way wip doesn't like, I did a little work on a daemon weapom for a warpsmith. Should have used less material for the outline and there are quite a few things things I have to correct later on. I really should be using a refence image for this, but I didn't, and I'm quite sure I ended up with something rather different from the image I remember halfway and couldn't find again. While this is not the first time I try my hand at sculpting, it is the firts time I try to put a three dimensional face on two dimensional surface.

In a manner of speaking, yes. There was obviously a group of friends who colluded to put this entry ahead of the others. Everybody else was just voting for what they liked best, which varied by personal taste. Those ladz don't really come around the shop too much anymore, but, like >>56266789, I didn't attend this year - had too much personal stuff to deal with and 250K NASCAR fans clogging up the highways around my home - so it's anybody's guess.

I *can* say that the Inner Circle competition earlier this year was indeed intense and *very* serious, so I wouldn't have been surprised with a raft of good 40K entries.

Checking the store's FB page, I can confirm there was indeed some cool stuff, including this Nurgle army that I had been wanting to see, as I know the fellow who painted it.

subassemblies.
The idea that you can't see it just because you can't reach it with a brush is somewhat misinformed. There are plenty of places to small or at a bad angle on any given mini that may make it hard or even impossible to paint plainly visible stuff.

Depends on what the models look like though. Do a dryfit and see if you think you could work with it.

You could add sharper/brighter highlights to the carapace, especially the thigh plates
Tongue could do with another highlight as well and the eyes painting in
Other than that it looks pretty good.
Stylistically maybe i'd have chosen a differing colour for the boneswords as they are quite tonally similar to the arm colour, however they are quite well painted as is and maybe they stand out better in person, so to speak.
Its certainly not a bad looking model, if you do 2 things paint the eyes and do the base, and it will look 8/10

For female models I'm looking to get stuff from these two site:

>http://www.statuesqueminiatures.co.uk/

Both are practically heroic quality, though Raging heroes is often sexy models and boobplate when when it comes to females.


Here's my question. I'm planning on getting the Bald Female Heads (pictured) does anyone know how I can easily put them under Guardsman helmets? I know Victoria Minis has ones with helmets, but I want them all to have the official IG helmets. Am I gonna have to just cut the head out and sculpt these to fit?

>> No.56280109

WIP IG snipers. Will likely run them as Ratlings, or as a double command squad (with nearby CC) for extra-accurate shooting.

I had to strip them three times before I got the camo patterns somewhere I liked. Still have to do the hair, bandanas/headwraps (gonna do a catachan red, nothing else will look right, though I'm open to ideas), shade, and highlight.

Hey /wip/, I just bought some old school ravagers and need advice.

If our FLGS sold FW, I'd buy it. They do sell GW stuff, even webstore exclusive. Since there's no S&H involved (it comes through the store chain), I often get stuff way cheaper than looking online or having to buy enough stuff from GW to get free shipping.

Luckily the store doesn't give two shits about GW. They barely sell their products, making their money from everything else. So I can bring all the 3rd party and recast pieces.

Have you tried free hand details before? Warning Triangles/stripes, hatch marks on weapons, Army/Squad Icons can all add a lot of character.

What about weathering on the boots/bottom of the coat? Airbrush/super light drybrush of the dust color on the lower body might add to the grime affect.

More exotic weathering like oil stains, rust, or an old blood stain?

What about customizing more from a modeling standpoint? Maybe get your head out of painting and try greenstuffing something you haven't before. A custom bandage, repose an arm, get some plasticard and add some kind of custom sword/knife.

Not from GW I think. At least not currently. Back in ye olden days you could have gotten a Spyrer from Necromunda maybe.

There are other companies that make models in PA too.
HF has one that looks a lot like GW's Space Marine armor even. Called Power Armored Libby irc. They also have recently released two models inspired by the Sister of Sigmar from Mordheim. Technically they wear plate armor, but it could be fluffed as power armor (same goes for other fantasy miniatures of course).
Then you have Reaper Chronoscope, who have lots of different things, the Eisenkern plastic minis you could use, the retro-sci minis from Bombshell miniatures or maybe even the odd Infinity piece. You could also check the iKore/Void/Urban War ranges from Grendel. There are a handful of models you could use, though the iKore ones are a bit dated.
Gates of Antares also has a bunch of female models in PA. Mainly thinking of the Freeborn range here, though there may be others.
