If you have an airbrush, steel wool makes this stupid easy: base coat in the main color, then lay the steel wool out over it and spray the darker color through the wool.

Thing is, for bricks like that where each brick is from a different area of a larger block of marble, the veining shouldn't be consistent across each brick, so if you want to go full autism you may want to tape off a bunch of them and do multiple passes.

Now that I've read your other post it makes sense, yeah. Honestly I just never tried to bother with NMM other than weapons or small tests because my brain is allergic to understand how lighting works and thus it feels like I'm just copying other people rather than make a model the way I like.

Yeah it's not bad, it's just very odd looking. I've done some for terrain before, but I like mine cartoony and over exaggerated. Then again, I don't use an airbrush, So, different technique used, but same outcome. Pic is from like...jesus five years ago now.

>it looks very muted compared to the rest of the model
Yeah figured as much. I wanted to keep the green thing going so I used jade, but I probably mixed it with too much dark colour. As per the shaft of the scythe the picture is shitty but I tried to highlight from wooden colors but the camera did not pickup the layers, same with the red loincloth, my camera has an issue with reds it seems.

>> No.76484844

>>76484785
Take a brighr flashlight and shine it slightly off from directly on the face of the model. For some reason for me at least that helps my camera focus; pick up details like that better. Like pic related for example. Usually the wood grain on the axe doesnt pick up under normal lighting bit the flashlight helps it better.

At what point can you ignore a mold line you missed? How far back can it set you if you fix/remove a mold line? If you're at this stage like pic related, do you just strip and try again? I feel like I lose too much time stripping then repriming and cleaning airbrush again

Also, how smooth should the mini be after you prime it? Pic related has some texture to the touch, but I don't think it's super grainy. I genuinely have a hard time finding the sweet spot of primer to thinner, to psi, to how long to hold the trigger back, should primer layer be opaque, etc?

If you're painting them red, I'd recommend mixing in some blue or purple to the shadow. Pure black wash may look too intense, unless you've done the whole mini that way and then it can at least be consistent. Screamer Pink is probably too purple for the highlight. Look for something that is more salmon or Caucasian flesh toned. Also note in pic related the level of contrast between the highlight and base red to control how matte or shiny the material looks.

As opposed to parchment paper? If your paint is drying in your wet palette I would say it's more an issue of spreading the paint too thin or environmental/humidity issues.

Pop them back in the bath for a while, crevices like that tend to need a few goings over.

>shitload of qtips and toothpicks - for cleaning nozzle and inside of the cup
>an old shitty brush - for mixing the paint
>some small paint cups in metal - for mixing paint, you ideally don't want to mix it in the airbrush cup as it can clog easier that way

Most importantly: have fun with it, airbrush are fun to use no matter all the cleaning and maintenance (really easy after the first couple of times) and try to learn how to thin your paints correctly for it first, that's the most trickier part IMO, control too but videos can help.

Really thin power lines like for example in a power sword or runes on necron/eldar kits, you can still do them at 20 but it's gonna be trickier as you need to keep the paint thick enough to not "spider" and fluid enough to not clog your brush, some paints companies reccomend PSI as low as 12 or 15 for their paints for maximum control. As per lacquers and enamels, they make for real awesome metals and chrome finishes, especially if you plan on doing certain vehicles or stuff that isn't grimdark or dirty.

For that use, the chink one will be perfect. It's not as bad as people say, and I once saw a video of a guy modding its nozzle with bee wax and it didn't work bad at all. And important part I forgot to mention, the small plastic/rubber o-ring that seals the nozzle is really easy to lose/break and you need to be careful when disassembling it the first times, which is why a dude on youtube sealed it with wax, the video is interesting.

As per a better compressor, I'm ashamed to admit I haven't even searched for it as I don't need it to do more complicated stuff than what I already do, and I'm not too keen on spending more than £100 on it as of now. /m/ and /toy/ gunpla threads have great pastebin with info about airbrush though.

Positive.

Palos was a "made-to-order" deal for a limited time - the same limited time as Lexicanum Varus, Terminator Librarian. I think I waited about six months from when I ordered for those two to show up. As far as I am aware, neither model was available at any stores around here.

Novena, on the other hand, was available in the stores - but five minutes after they all sold out, GW announced she would be available as a "made-ot-order" on the company webstore - and she still is - hence she does not sell for nearly as much as Palos, as >>76494246 sagely pointed out.

The renegade warband I've been working on is a sort of Fallen/ Nightlords mix as far as aesthetics go, I'd just run them as Night Lords for simplicity. I wasn't planning on this character at all that's what I meant by not sure what I'll do with it. Big thing right now is figuring out how I want the standard troops to look, regular csm are a little too chaos for the look I was going for so I'm still brainstorming them

Hey /wip/ doing some necron bases to make them look like their forming out of quicksilver. Kinda like the terminators from the new dark fate movie.

Gonna cast the feet In resin then paint over the whole model with either ak xtreme metal chrome or alclad chrome.

Question is how do i make a mould for the model so I can keep the resin contained? Only need a small amount of resin as it is gonna be just the feet and going up the legs a bit. What do you guys suggest?

>> No.76497523

Sorry, m8. That one's mine. I sold my last spare about a week ago. I'm sure the recasters must have Amulius by now, though. Have a look around.

>>76496564
>Did you grab the bull dyke from a local store? Mine still hasn't shipped since early september
Yes. Not all of them sold; she isn't a Space Marine or Battle Sister, so there were extras left over here and there.

With some of the models, GW demanded that the store managers set them aside after the "availability period" was over, with explicit instructions to return them back to the warehouse with other "obsolete" merchandise. However, for a few Limited Edition models, the managers were advised that if they could raise the store's revenue by selling the model before the "drop dead date" by which they *had* to be returned, then by all means, they should do so.

Not every store can sell hotcakes like the Citadel can, and even the Citadel has a hard time moving *everything*.

I know exactly what you mean man, Ive spent the last few weeks converting a bunch of CSM to look more unique. Kitbashing and converting them to look bigger or with more parts from loyalist kits to make them look more like renegade/scavenger marines that arent part of the original legions.

I think youre nailing it with the aesthetic youre going for tho, keep it up they look great! One Idea for the standard troops is to get some of the FW heads, pretty cheap but it goes a long way for making them look unique.

I really wanted to save this for the next thread, as that card is worthy of being the OP image, but it's after midnight, and I'm running out of Command Points.

Thanks a lot, OKC-anon. I think I'm gonna be pilfering that DW Kill Team for bitz to enhance my veterans and Death Company (those extra-big thunder hammers are ace, and *everybody* is wearing Mk VIII armour!). Even though they are limited to a squad of three, Blood Angel Outriders with chainswords are *beastly* in an assault. They get 16 attacks on the charge - 19 if "Savage Echoes" is in play - and thanks to the Red Thirst, get +1 to wound.

I have a feeling those goodies are going to disappear when the kids find them.
