Hello everyone !!

Read this :


Do you want to take your painting to the next level? Have you always wanted to learn from the best? Well now you can with the ‘Eavy Metal Masterclass Weekend! Your ticket will cover a full two day course where you will learn a selection of the techniques that the ‘Eavy Metal team uses to produce incredibly painted models for Games Workshop.

Not only that your ticket provides everything you will need to take part – brushes, paints, models – so all you need to do is turn up! In addition you will get to take all the consumables with you – paints, brushes and models.

Day two will then give you the time to fully practice and refine the techniques you learned the previous day – with an ‘Eavy Metal team member on hand to offer advice, feedback and help you if anything starts to go awry!

In addition, the most valuable part of day two will be where we set aside an entire hour for you in a separate room where you will get one-to-one time with an ‘Eavy Metal team member from the previous day.

The date is 09-10 dec (2 more date planned)


The most important thing to bear in mind is that tickets will go on sale Monday 16th of October at 8:00AM from our usual website (www.eventbrite) and are EXTREMELY limited in number, so get in there quickly!

www.eventbrite is the website they use for managing booking.

So hyped for this !!

Citadel Paint App – The review !

Tags : painting app hobby stuff

Small thumb paintappthing

Hello everyone !!

Gw is releasing the Citadel Paint App tomorow(saturday 16 september) and they sent us these links to DL it.

Android:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.gamesworkshop.citadelpaint

iOS:
https://itunes.apple.com/app/citadel-paint-the-app/id1238189867

Amazon:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/mas/dl/android?p=com.gamesworkshop.citadelpaint

Quick review of what this is about !

General stuff


The Citadel Paint App, is an application made by Games Workshop to help hobbyist painting and managing their paints stock.
-100% Free.
-Localized in multiple language : French, German, English, Chinese, Spanish, Italian, Japanese.
-Duncan videos are still in English only(but with integrated subtitle).

Homepage


The homepage is 5 links :
-Getting started,
-Paint by color,
-Paint by model,
-Painting bases,
-Paint inventory/wishlist.

Getting started

Getting started page is very busy.

First there is a video on the GW paint system.


Then there is 9 Duncan videos explaining the different painting techniques. (some categories have no vid)


Ex: One video about shading (i think it the same one as the youtube page)



At the bottom when you click on the Brush you get a small pop up explaining how the brush is made and what is it for.
I learned there that all the GW layer brush are made in "poil de martre" (sable) is that true ? I knew it for the Artificier but not for the standard one.



Paint by color


It's the main part of the App, for each color of the GW range you can :


Choose a color



Choose a tone.



Choose between 2 methods : Layering or Dry brushing

Layering version



Drybrushing version



You can also access technique video from there.


Paint by Model


Right now there is 63 models represented.

When you choose one.



You get a close up with links accessing the colors section.


Bases

Same as the colors but for the bases.



With quick access to the corresponding technique as well.



Paint Collection


The last page is very interesting, it's my favorite of the app !!
You get to mark which paint pot you have which one you want.
No more of "you go to the shop and buy the wrong color (again !) or forget what you needed".

This is the Homepage of this section.



Imagine ! you are planning to paint blood angels like every sane person ^^
From this page you can wishlist everything by clicking top right corner or select what do you have or want from each color line.
Notice that the paint icons are present on every color pages to add them easily.

ps: If i selected the Dry brush version the paints offered would be different.

Then in the Owned section :



And in the wish list section:


Color Picker


A color Picker is included in the app too ! If you allow the app to access your camera you can take a picture of a model (or a color on the floor or something). Click it and the App offer you multiple colors choices.

Exemple :



In this case i clicked on the arm of the Rat Ogre and a dark brown flesh tone was proposed. if you click on the bottom bar you get sent to another page with 3 or 4 painting options for the corresponding color.

Here another exemple when i captured my keyboard (black) and went to " Trouver les correspondances"



Quite awesome ?

ps: Color offered where a bit darker than the actual model, result may differ with different smartphone/light (Maybe it work even better on the Iphone X ^^) I was using my Ipad and the camera is a bit darker.

Time to wrap up, this review !

What is missing
-Multi language video.
-Stock level for paints. ie : Being able to add détails like Having 2 Nuln oil, or a nearly depleted pot of Mephiston red.
-Having other painted exemple than a space marines backpack, especially on the flesh colors it doesn't make sense right now :D
-Option for changing language (maybe it's in but i didn't found it)

Conclusion

For a Version 1.0 the App is already awesome, it's free and there a huge amount of painting information !!

Well Played Games Worskhop ! Future is Bright !

Amazing tutorial by Kujo Painting !

Tags : painting tutorial hobby stuff

Small thumb kujobike

hello everyone !!

This is the best video you will see today :D
A painting tutorial by Kujo about blue steel, it's quite close to the Ben Komets Dark sea blue metal, but without the green.
Anyway even if you don't plan to use these colors the method and the explanations are definitively worth your time. !!

10/10 !

2 Warlords - Painting Dark Imperium

Tags : painting blood angels atia hobby stuff death guard bob two warlords

Small thumb 19179534 442190379475700 1587738432 o

Howdy Guys and Girls and welcome to a new weekly series - 2 Warlords!

In the next weeks, we’re gonna paint the contents of “Dark Imperium” - after that, we will see! Bob is doing Blood Angels while I’m painting my Death Guard with their heresy era scheme - ready for the Siege of Terra!


Let’s take a look on what we worked this week:




Atia’s Death Guard - Foetid Bloat-drone

I decided to start with the cute bloat drone - it allowed me to try the colour scheme and it didn’t need any transfer sheets. The model is gorgeous and I hope we see an untainted Stratos-Automata version down the line.







I used a similar recipe to Paul Rudge’s for the white:

Primer of Corax White
Basecoat of Typhon Ash (airbrush)
Zenithal coat of Typhon Ash mixed with a bit of white (airbrush)
Layer of Seraphim Sepia mixed with lots of lots of FW airbrush Clear (brush)
Edge Highlights and weathering

Next on my painting table is the Malignant Plaguecaster!

Also a shot of the bloat drone next to some Plaguebearers:




Bob - Blood Angels Primaris Lieutenant



Hello everyone !!

I started with a lieutenant - the one with the power sword. I used the Airbrush brush method I already showed you:
https://war-of-sigmar.herokuapp.com/bloggings/2104
&
https://war-of-sigmar.herokuapp.com/bloggings/2125

Meet Lt Bob of the Blood Angels’ third company.

Paints used for the red armor :
Black Primer (vallejo)
Zenithal 45° with vallejo grey primer
Zenithal 90° with vallejo white primer
Mephiston red air glaze on all the model with airbrush.
Black lining all the armor plates Flatblack (scale75)
Wildrider Orange highlight on every edge
Wildrider Orange free hand parallel to every dark line



Leather holster and bags are painted with :
Basecoat of Bootstrap Leather (P3)
Shaded with Battlefield Brown (p3)
Final shading was made with a mix of Battlefield Brown and Black 70/30.
Highlight is Rucksack Tan (p3)
Lining with Rucksack Tan (p3)
Stippling with Rucksack Tan (p3). I made a small dot of diluted Rucksack Tan with the tips of a drybrush-brush to create the effect of leather. (Angel Giraldez explains it in his book if you want more info)


The power sword :

To make power sword like this you need an airbrush (or serious blending skill with a brush) and masking tape.

First mask a side of the blade like this

You see the mask is in the middle of the blade, and make a very clean separation.
then :
White Primer ( vallejo white primer)
Light blue blend (sky blue air vallejo)
Royal Blue blend (french blue air vallejo)
Dark Blue blend (signal blue air vallejo)
black dot.

The effect is better if you do each side in a separate direction (white top for one and bottom for the other).

Each time reduce the area of the blend to conserve a small part of the color.
For more details check this tutorial : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r7me7OB3XP0

Metal, gold, gun, black :

Metal is : Vallejo metal steel, dark shade(army painter) , silver lining Vallejo metal.
Gold is : Vallejo Metal gold, dark shade(army painter) , silver lining Vallejo metal.
Black is : Flatblack scale 75, then astronomican grey + white.
Seal is : purple + white.
Parchment is : Rucksack tan + strong shade and hilight with menoth white base.


3 things are still missing :

1 gem on the blade and the base.
For the base I want to go lava style but I’m going to do all them in one go! (I will post a tutorial on how to do this)

For the gem, I’m not sure of the color or the technique I want to try. But I’d like to have all the power swords with the same gem style. Will paint them once everything is complete.

Transfer Sheets - I ordered micro set and micro sol but it didn’t arrived yet :(

We hope you like our progress - see ya next week :)

Regards,
Lady Atia and Bob
