Painting Ossiarch Bonereapers with Contrast paints

Tags : contrast paints ossiarch bonereapers painting

Small thumb fullimages2

Hello everyone !!!

Following my post about the Mortek Guard models, I wanted to share a simple painting process for the Ossiarch.

painting mortek guard contrast age of sigmar

Preparing the Model

Models are painted without the shield, it's 10 times easier and doesn't take much more time. So I glue the body (it's easy, it's only 2 parts) then the head and the weapon arm. Next, I glue it on a base and place it on a GW handle. lastly I glue the shield to paper clip inserted into a wine/champagne cap.

painting mortek guard contrast age of sigmar

Prime / Zenithal / Varnish

I use an airbrush but you can do it with a brush or a spray can, but it's easier with an AB (you can use a very cheap one from amazon if you only want to do zenithal)

-Start by priming the whole model with light grey (i mix stynylrez grey and white 35/65)
-Do a Zenithal from the top and side with pure white.
-Then spray a thin coat of Gloss varnish, this step is optional but the Contrast paint flows a lot better with it, staining a lot less flat surface. So maybe you can avoid it on small skeletons like Ossiarch Mortek guards but if you plan to paint Space Marines with this method, always do a thin coat of gloss varnish to help the paint flow!

At the end you should have something close to this !

Painting

To be honest the previous step is 50% of the work all that left is applying contrast and then do some highlight.

Start with bones

-One coat of Squelleton Hordes contrast paint. Be neat plz and use a small brush on details and zone limit. I use a size 1 or 2 for the large area but I don't hesitate to bring a 2/0 for all the small zone like the hands, blade guard, top of the shield, helmet ...Contrast paints are super fast to use but you are going to lose a lot of time if you have to correct a lot of blunders.
ps: To correct a mistake with contrast, wait for the paint to dry then apply white and use contrast on it.

-Highlight the bones with an Off white, any off white is fine I used Mojave white from Scale 75 this time but Ushapti bones(gw) Jack bones from P3 would work too.

End result :

painting mortek guard contrast age of sigmar

Armor and sword

-One coat of Space Wolves Grey from the contrast line, again use a small brush to avoid or at least limit mistakes ^^ (i used a 2/0 here).

-Highlight with pure white by doing a lining or some thin glazes.

painting mortek guard contrast age of sigmar

Red

-Pre Highlight with white on the part you want the most light red.

-Paint one thick coat of Contrast Blood Angels Red.

-Then Highlight the zone with white again

-Paint one thin coat of red (not contrast). Any intense red would work. But if you have some GW blood angel red it's even better.

painting mortek guard contrast age of sigmar

More details and blend

If you want to spend a little more time you can add some shadow/highlight to increase the contrast a bit more (the light shadow value not the paint ^^).

-Add shadow with a dark blue/green, I use scale Abyssal blue, but Iron Coal from P3 is good too.

-Add highlight with a sky blue + white this time I used Bering blue by scale 75

painting mortek guard contrast age of sigmar

It's not a big difference in the image but it makes the job IRL.

(obviously, i did it on the left Hecatos and not on the right Trooper)

Final thought

painting mortek guard contrast age of sigmar

Really easy and fast way to get decent models on the table. I prefer to go for stark highlight as it looks better on the battlefield.

Better to paint a small batch of models instead of one by one. Don't go crazy of the batch size as it can transform painting in a Chore :/ On the other hand, I usually do the priming in one big go as it's easy and relaxing to do.

Options : You can swap Space Wolves grey with basillicanum grey, red with green, purple or blue. You could even do the bones with another colour completely.

Hope you like it !

Happy painting.

/Cheers.
Bob.

With Christmas on the horizon, we’re happy to reveal two massive boxed sets absolutely packed to the gills with Dominion of Sigmar terrain, each easily containing enough scenery to transform even the most barren tabletop into a thematic battlefield. The Hallowed Stormthrone set contains a new frame, currently only found in this box, that allows you to build a rune-engraved throne. Meanwhile, the Penumbral Stormvault comes with a Penumbral Engine, previously only available in Forbidden Power, making it a great way to get your hands on one of these invaluable bits of battlefield scenery.

Atia paints - Black Legion

Howdy Guys and Girls :)

Just want to share my latest finished models - hope you like them!

Regards,
Lady Atia

The Black Legion

Born as the XVIth Space Marine Legion on Terra, the Black Legion would first rise to greatness under the name of the Luna Wolves. Before the dark days of the Horus Heresy they fought at the Emperor's side on Terra and through the early years of the Great Crusade. They were as stalwart and indefatigable as any of the servants of the Emperor and their actions exemplified what it meant to be a warrior of the Space Marine Legions. Brutal, ruthless and unwavering but also honourable, and once loyal beyond question, the history of the Black Legion is the history of the ambition of the Imperium itself, and the flaws that broke its founder's dreams of unification and glory for all Mankind asunder.

The Black Legion is now one of the Traitor Legions of Chaos Space Marines who are united in the pursuit of the single purpose of overthrowing the Imperium. They oppose the infighting that consumes so many of their brethren amongst the other Traitor Legions, for the Astartes of the Black Legion are the greatest servants of Chaos Undivided. They are always brought together in great numbers to work the will of their Warmaster of Chaos, Abaddon the Despoiler, the heir of Horus. Whenever the entirety of the Black Legion is called to battle, it marks the beginning of another one of Abaddon's Black Crusades against the Imperium of Man.

Citadel Colour: The App

Tags : painting hobby games workshop

Small thumb unnamed  15

Hello everyone !!!

Preceding the official release of the Contrast Paints, games workshop did a major update on the Citadel Colour Application.

Available on IOS and Android, this app has been designed to help painters with every aspect of the painting process. Users are able to paint by colour or by miniature, with detailed recipes that are easy to follow. There’s a feature to help users manage your projects and record the paints that they have used (a valuable tool for any army painter), and an introduction to the Citadel Colour System that will help new painters understand how to bring their armies to life.

Alongside this, there are basing guides, advanced guides, and a healthy dose of Duncan too - there are plenty of informative videos to enjoy and learn from. You can find out even more about it right here.

Citadel Colour is really a new naming that Games Workshop is pushing. I checked the New App on my phone and i have to admit that the content is rich, with lot of info on the Citadel Colour method, Battle & Parade ready concept, Contrast Paints and so. And it's 100% Free (for once ^^)

Hello everyone !!

Contrast paints pre-order is in 3 days and models painted with it are spawning on Socials Medias.
One of these grabbed my attention, it's the purple Stone Troll by Richard Gray.

-Model was primed black
-Zenithal with a zenithal with wraithbone using air brush (lot of thinning needed^^)
-Full coat of purple on the skinn then highlight + dot
-Blue skins is pure Contrast blue air brushed.

Everything was made under 2 hours !

Question : painting fast ?

Question : time to paint ?

Question : Must use Wraithbone can ?

Question : Spraying constrast paints ?

The contrast on the skin is very good and didn't lost much intensity. Off course it's Gray holding the brush but gaining speed while keeping quality is a super good news.
