UPS anon here just finished basing and varnishing my terminator, about to start on highlights and rust effects.
Tried doing something different for an attempt at plasma glow and only made it much worse, kept trying to fix it but after so many layers I was losing detail and had to stop.

So, ever since anon posted about FW "quality" in the last thread, I was looking around videos for FW models. Why the fuck do these parts have such massive reservoirs? I know you need something there so there's resin to fill in bubbles as they come out, but Christ. These blocks are as big as the part in a lot of cases. Is that actually necessary?

>> No.72459225

Acted on impulse, and slapped together a bunch of bits from abandoned projects I had lying around into a warpsmith. Needs cleaning up and greenstuff mechadendrites, likely some wires or tubes or some shit, and possibly more bits. Also need to figure out what to do with the spine.

No, they're just doing a sloppy lazy job.

The blocks are because they want to overfill the moulds lest you get a bubble and thats the way you can also apply some pressure into the mold without spilling hot noxious resin all over the place, which is using gravity and differential pressure to make the resin want to force the air out if it has a mass of it above. Compare that with finecrap(tm) which uses more basic press moulds and FW actually has a smarter brainlet approach to resin. That being said FW would unironically be better if they just had industrial 3D printers churning out their parts than working with resin in 2020.

Unless you package it in such a way that parts aren't rubbing against each other, and that they can't bash against the packaging itself, you're probably going to get some warping. That's going to need a fuckin' big box with the parts all spaced out, and either suspended in some way or tightly padded. And since warping is a piece of piss to fix (you just put it in hot water then bend it back), that's just not worth it.

That's their biggest issue with quality, right? Not replacing the molds in a timely fashion? It's not just pulls that wear them down, just sitting on a shelf they degrade.
Not transitioning to 3D prints is likely a marketing thing. They'd have to admit it's viable for miniatures if they did it. Though, I'm not convinced UV cure resin is the best material for large but detailed models. Isn't it very brittle? You'd have a lot of chipping where urethane and polystyrene don't give you those problems.

No. Industrial FDM printers aren't used for their aesthetically pleasing results. This does not make sense outside of any hobbyist application of this type of printer.

For whoever asked last thread about the gasmasked heads.
Both heads are from Warlord games here:
https://store.warlordgames.com/products/german-gasmask-figure-heads?_pos=1&_sid=fc21207b2&_ss=r

To get the hat on the officer, I just cut away the helmet and got the top nice and flat, before using a file to round out the back sides of the head. From there I got a plastic officers head from the Waffen-SS sprue and cut off the head part of it. From there I just used superglue and it worked pretty well. I even tried it with a field cap, and it turned out nice as well. Very little filling to be done as the glue itself does that for you, and the bond is so good I don't need to pin it or nothing. With that in mind I think the heads themselves are probably a goldmine for conversions, especially with stuff like Imperial Guard in 40K, though im not sure if the helmets would fit, but worth the try. They also got other gas masked helmets for British and American forces, which would probably fare the same in terms of helmswaps.

I’m a fairly mediocre painter, base colors, a wash some highlights if my hands aren’t too shaky. However I keep seeing the paint seem to flake away from the edges of my models that I’ve primed white. It’s not that the paint is too thin or too thick, it’s exactly the consistency that I always use and get good results on for black or gray primer, it’s only on models with white primer. I’ve tried reapplying paint but even after a solid coat it disappears pretty quickly. Any idea what might be causing this or what a good way to fix it would be?

Are you handling the models with your hands as you paint? That can - and especially with some kinds of white primer - does rub the paint off the raised edges as you fumble around with them in your grabba-claws. You can avoid this by not touching the models as you paint them. Blue-tacking to an old paint bottle/lid and using Citadel's painting handles are both acceptable alternatives.

Right let me take a crack at this. As someone who also jumped into the deep end of conversion, and oddle enough started with an admech stormcast conversion, let me give you my tjougjts and what i've learned. This ain't easy, and you will need the right tools, but it can be done.

First thing if you want to do conversion i would strongly suggest getting a hand drill, for a couple of reasons. The first reason is pinning. Not for the limbs, but for the weapon. Now i may be wrong, but it looks like you took thr stormcast arm amd cut off the weapon and then cut thr weapon off the skittles arm and glued it on. This is all well and good, but the connection is often week. Taking a very small bit put a hole dead center of the two sides you are trying to connect, use a bit of wire or a staple as the connecting rod, and then glue. This gives a much stronger connection and keeps things centered so they don't look skiwampus.

The hand drill can also be used to make small holes. You mentiined wanting it to look like it had been shot, a few shallow holes drilled on an armor plate here and there and then chipped at with a hobby knife can give a good battle scarred look. A dremel really isnt the tool for doing that.

Now i can see a few areas where things are chewed up, the pauldron on the arm holding the weapon for example. If these were intentional i would reccomend not doing that again. Doesn't look good. Stsrt eith a jobby knife and make small cuts. Remember you can alwaya take more off but its hard to add more on, so when you make changes start small and gradually work up to where you want to be rather than starting by taking a large chunk off and then realizing it looks bad.

Get greenstuff. Don't buy it in the strips but it where the green and the blue come in two seperate tubes. The middle of the strips has already set cause the yellow and blue are touching and can cause problems. Get the tubes from green stuff world.

For the belt i would reccommend some greenstuff to make the tubing/wiring go all the way around the body like a belt. If you don't feel confidant in your ability to sculpt it yourself get the tube making tool from greenstuff world. That thing is pretty damn awesome.

Thing about converting is in my experience a lot of it is about patience and taking your time to do things carefully. And a willingness to fuck up, cause failure is how we learn what doesnt work. Fortunately the second is more important than the first sincd it cant alwaya be learned and you have it, so you'll go far. Let me know of you want any more advice.

An addendum on the weapon, look at jow its possitioned on the original model and how its possitioned on yours. If we look at the hand and the crossbar the "blade" equivalent is not lined up woth them its looks like its at a bit of an angle to me, which makes it look awkward.

Thank you so much! I will take all the advice you have honestly, that was a beautiful path to follow-up with.

I ran into the issues of smoothing because I was using a power tool. The hand drill and hobby knife will be something I add to my set quickly now.

I am unsure if sculpting is something I can do but I am extremely excited to get started.

One issue I was experiencing was when I had to remove a LARGE amount of material. For example I replaced the paldrons so I had to remove the stormcast to add the ones I did. Would the Dremel suit that task or should I take my time with the slower hand equipment?

>> No.72465314

Well I personally go at it with a knife, but as long as you use a small dremmel bit and are careful it should be possible to use the dremel to remove unwanted material. The key is going to be figuring out how much you can remove without affecting areas that will still be seen. If its gonna be under the pauldron then it doesn't have to be pretty cause people won't see it. Any bits that get messed up where people can see them you gotta go in with greenstuff or miliput to fix, so if you're going to go at it with a dremmel be careful.

Thanks. I'll probably put a knife to it next, I keep seeing small bits and here and there that needs to be neatened up anyway. I have a habit of quickly bashing tings together before I have removed mold lines, only having cut away stuff that is specifically needed for the conversion. Also before the glue is try. It's not uncommon for me to fidget around with 2-4 wet parts and hating myself for doing it.

Not sure if we're thinking of the same thing, so I'm going to put up a reference picture. The positioning of the arm looks more or less fine to me, it's how the taser goad is attached to the handle that looks funky to me.

See if you look at how you have it attached we can see the crossguard of the blade is going one way, and the power generator/base of the "blade" is sitting perpendicular on the cross guard so that if your guy swings it he's going to smack a bitch with the flat of the "blade" rather than the edge. I mean I know it's a taser goad and it doesn't have an actual edge, but the way the original bit is the piece should be turned 90 degrees.

I'm terrible in explaining this in words so look at the picture of the arc maul here. See how the power segment/base of the weapon goes the same way as the crossguard rather than sitting at right angles? That's what I was trying to get at with the weapon thing. Hope that makes sense and wasn't confusing.

So I went and dug out my admech stormcast conversion from when I was starting a few years back. This was the first kitbash I ever did personally, my flgs was having a kitbash competition and the owner (who was a good friend of mine) encouraged me to join cause they didn't have many participants. Had a lot of fun and I've been converting ever since. Looking at it now I can see where I would do things differently, and there are definitely problems, but honestly it's not a terrible mini and it looks fine on the table. I guess what I'm trying to say is stick with it, you can do it, and even early efforts can still be looked at with pride as representations of how far you've come if nothing else.

Also, looking at this reminded me of a suggestion I would like to make for your mini. If you're going to be doing a storm cast admech conversion consider getting some of the armor bits from a kataphron kit, I personally think work pretty well for it. Adds some admech flavor and keeps a nice heavy armor feel.

I've lost more than one bottle of glaze and wash paint to poorly made, leaky bottles so I recommend that you don't just buy the cheapest thing you can find. A bad quality bottle will have issues sealing and uncapping properly, most of the cheap bottles I used ended up being thrown away.
My recent preference has been for empty Vallejo brand bottles which are usually sold under the product number 70.095 or 70.096 on ebay. They're slightly different visually from Vallejo's regular bottles, but they are the same quality and size as a regular Vallejo bottle.

Honest question:

Why do you need to thin paints? Shouldn't the manufacturers know that they are going to be thinned? Why not thin them ahead of time then? I know you thin them to various degrees but I would have thought that an arbitrary amount of thinner would be included in their recipe already.

Because sometimes I want to glaze, sometimes I want to turn them into a wash and sometimes I want to basecoat. Do you expect me to buy the same color three times but with different consistencies?
