Shroud of Night was pretty good. Interesting to see the AL walk the line between Loyalists and Heretics, with a natural tendency for Chaos, since, you know, they're traitors. The upcoming Sons of the Hydra book has me intrigued, considering it's very explicit that the leader wants redemption this time. Pretty sure it won't go that way though.

To add onto this. I'm not sure if I want the wings to be a brighter shade(Like Baharroth Blue) of blue or darker(closer to the hue on the underbelly). I'll be applying a super diluted wash to tint them. The spines will definitely be the brighter blue color.

Anyone have experience with the new d&d mini line? Been painting a few for my siblings for Christmas and am really not liking the minis. Even though they come primed, they aren't taking paint (using GW paints) as well as other models that I've primed with a different material and the models just aren't consistently designed in a way where you can reach all the areas that need paint easily. Also, fucking moldlines every where and kind of low detail models.

Short answer, yes. Longer answer, yes, but metallic sprays tend to clog up the spray nozzle really easily so you might end up wasting a lot of money when your mostly-full can stops spraying.

>> No.56910560

You probably won't be able to just because how the details int he minis are shaped. there's no real crisp edges like on GW minis, even the sharpest points are rounded at some point. They are great for practice because of how damn cheap they are. Sidenote, I actually cut the dragon off the rock because of the issue of unreachable areas.

I did the blue on these guys(still WIP) by spraying leadbelcher, glaze x2 of thinned guilleman, highlight storm host silver, and then glaze x 2 of 4:1 lahmian medium to green gemstone paint.

I've worked with a few of them that I don't currently have on me. You don't really have to prime them, though since they're pre-primed that means they still have mold lines so you'll have to prime the bits you cut.

You could use real inks.
You may have to mix your own olive tone, but inks have much more vibrant colors and stronger pigment.
The only thing to consider is that they tend to dry glossy, so you'll have to matt varnish the model if you don't already do that.

I like mine a dark n muddy olive drab, more a yellow brown with green tint really.

SImilar to the GGY in the examples but the "shadows" get more and more extreme and under good light it get too yellow.

Anon, I cant really answer the question with wash, but maybe I could help you pick a way to paint ork skin:
>Prime model black
> layer of Steel legion drab
> Layer of Elysian camoshade. Bonus points if you manage to keep steel legion drab in recesses
>Highlight with Uriel Yellow + Elysian camoshade
>Don't wash it, use glazs instead

They aren't made for people with high standards, they are game pieces.
Also, I'v never painted a model that is 'ready to paint out of the box' that is actually ready to paint out of the box.

If it's that cold I'd recommend standing the cans in a mug of hot water (the warmest you can stick your finger in for twenty seconds) for a couple of minutes and then shaking for a full two minutes before use.
Too cold and it won't dry and settle properly, you have to compromise between shit coverage and pooling.

>I don't know what they are successors from, and I don't know about there back story either.
You need to figure that out. The rest will come on it's own then.
If you can't think of anything at all you can always use the chapter creation tables from Deathwatch and roll some random background quirks up. It's as good a place as any to start.

Generally speaking you may have already some stuff you can work with simply because of the colors you chose. Why did you chose them?
When I look at the scheme I'm reminded of Imperial fists, especially since you got the black arm there.
Then you make the connection between the chopped off hand of Dorn that is somewhere on display and you could work that into the background of your chapter as central part of their mythology. From that you can develop a lot of other stuff already.

That's just an example though.

Here is a prime example of what I mean. Viscosity and pigment density are two completely different, mutually exclusive qualities of a paint. Yet to change either is to thin/thicken paint.

If I add a medium to a paint that is of higher viscosity than my paint, have I thinned or thickened my paints?

If we only use the one term, it's ambiguous. Otherwise, I can accurately say my new mixture is of lower dilution and higher viscosity.

My friends play infinity, i collect death (the flower knight will be super fun to paint), never tried my hand at big scale but have looked at them in my local model shop, the white dwarf finecast looks cool as shit and I have to confess its been about 15 years since I've painted a space marine.

RPGs are what got me into model making again so the 16gb USB stick entitled "the gift of RPG" is also much appreciated and will be some great Xmas reading. Again thank you so much hollandanon

That stuff looks big and chunky. I know when I was a student (Dave Lister: "I can't help it! I went to Art College!") we used margarita salt for some things and ordinary table salt for others - they give different effects. I bet Kosher salt, with its larger grains would behave differently from either of those two.

Prime white. Expect to use several thin coats with just about any yellow from any manufacturer. Not just two, but more likely four.

If you don't get good results with paint for whatever reason try using yellow ink or white primer or the gw glazes and washes instead.

Yellow isn't inherently harder to paint, it just doesn't cover well, so you have to do a bit of planning. Priming black is a bad start for example.

Chapter is between Iron Hands and Salamanders...

The black arm is going to be because the Chapter Master plunged his arm into something (orc zappy engine of a stompa or maybe a daemon engine) and killed it, but it scorched his armor and required bionics due to the damage (good reason for Iron Hands, all neophytes have to remove the right arm for bionics).

>> No.56919117

Prime white or grey, then paint it a light grey and highlight with white

>> No.56919182

My opinion:
- You prime White Scar/Corax White (depending on the age of your spray ^^).
- Then you go for ulthuan grey.
- You make a shade with something a bit darker and use it to shade your skin
(like 6/1 ulthuan/black and thin a lot with medium or water)
- Then you put some ulthuan on the raised flat areas to get back to something light
- You finish with some pur white line
- base in mechanicus grey
- shade with nuln oil
- edge with ulthuan (or if it's too light 1/1 ulthuan/mechanicus grey)

For the part between hand and skin, just do multiple nuln oil shade closer and closer to the hand and put back some ulthuan grey in the lighter part so it get light enough.

While you are not wrong, i think my point still stands. The people who frequent /wip/ are dicks, but not mean spirited ones usually.

Just went to the mailbox in a bad mood (a block and a half in bad weather) and was pleasantly surprised by this package. Thanks Vancouver Anon! I really appreciate all the gifts.

Everyone of /WIP/ and their families have a wonderful Christmas, haunakah, quanza, Robotnikah or whatever you celebrate!

If its superglue put them in the freezer for a dau and then take them to snapcity, if its plastic glue then get one of pic related (razor/jewelry saw) or if you don't mind getting nowhere and stabbing yourself a bunch a hobby knife would do it, albeit painfully.

You will have to cut them off
Plastic glue bonds pieces together chemically

>> No.56919495

Doesn't CA / superglue technically do the same? CA contains acetone which melts/dissolves the plastic.

Seems like the buttplug is a popular gift this year.

>> No.56919578

Cyanoacrylate glues (CA or superglue) does not touch the material at all (which is why it'll glue anything to anything else, whether it's glass, metal, wood or plastic).

CA glues form a crystal lattice on the surface of the material (which is also why rougher surfaces work better with CA glues than smooth ones, more contact area), which draws in a lot of water in the process.
That's why you can freeze CA glue bonds to pieces, all that bound water expands quite strongly when it freezes shattering the crystal lattice around it, and breaking the bonds.

Plastic glues break down polystyrene plastics and melt them together, there's no undoing the bond at this point, you'll need to cut it through.

Thanks, I'll try freezing them first, see if that works

>> No.56919781

Jesus Christ /wipol/, that's incredible.
I was thinking the blackcurrant ones had nooses or something, but that is a way more dedicatedly hilarious things to do.

Hey, >>56919279 put time and money into providing him with a gift.
It's a bummer that they are going to be late, but it is what it is.

>> No.56919869

Yeah, the noose thing is what I was thinking as well, but that was a much more entertaining thing to do

>> No.56919889

Remember to freeze overnight. The glue can't just drop to freezing, it has to stay there long enough for the internal stress to cause the glue to shatter.

Even then don't expect it to come apart without a fight. Some of the lattice will break but if there's a LOT of glue you'll have 'dry bonds' that need a dose of elbow grease.

If it doesn't even creak when you pull at it, it's plastic glue, which means it's welded.
Get a sharp exacto knife and get to work.

Is the large base detail kit supposed to be like this? Lots of the rivets and bits such as the grille on the floor are hardly formed or straight out missing, the only time I've seen similar bits is with some really shitty recasts

Looks like a badly cleaned mold.

Injection molding like that usually has the mold periodically cleaned with some strong acid or solvent, then rinsed with water. Your cast may not have been allowed to fully dry or still had some deposit on it.

Send those photos to geedubs, see if you can get a free kit.

>> No.56920022

Is this new from a GW or from online/FLGS/old version

>> No.56920027

GW outsources bases and scenery kits to china usually.
It just looks like that.
They tend to use resin casts of the masters for marketing though so the confusion is understandable.

Look at some pictures of the scenery they've done recently like the craters with the crashed engine parts in them.
Looked great in the store, but worse than vacuformed shit in person.

With a halfway decent paintjob it's gonna look passable on a base though.

Send a message to GW customer support, this is fucking silly.

>> No.56920079

cool thing about geedubs- if you got it from them either in store or online, let them know and they will send out a full replacement, and most likely let you keep the shit ones. In a niche market like ours you cant really afford to have your customer base hate you for bad quality...how they got away with failcast is beyond me.

>> No.56920108


Its the " sector imperialis large base detail kit" that I got from my local gw maybe half a year - a year ago, I had a quick look when I got it and the manager said it was normal - i had my doubts but life got in the way and I've only just opened it back up, thought I'd check before contacting support. I know they're really good at replacing things even if you don't have proof of purchase anymore, luckily I've still got the box with price-tag attached.
>Looks like a badly cleaned mold.
I thought it might be something like too much mold release used or an old mold, I've had similar problems with forgeworld stuff (most of it in fact) but to date never had a dodgy GW plastic kit.

>> No.56920140

>but to date never had a dodgy GW plastic kit.
Had a sprue once that wasn't filled up completely. Space Marine helmet with dimple in it from an air pocket or some such.
Also had sprues with bits missing pretty often.

It happens.

>> No.56920146

There have been reviews that mention the poor quality of the bases and basing kits compared to the ones shown on the website. As anon said, those store images are not the final products, so there's a difference in quality.

Getting replacements might not improve your quality, but at least you get twice the terrain for the same price.

You're right, I've had a look at the box and it says "made in china" on it.

The original Mold was probably made by GW and they sent copies of varying quality to the factories in China.
