Hello again everyone !

Another Play it painted (Damn we are on a roll)

Big Stompy robot by Martin !!

The KX139 TA'UNAR SUPREMACY ARMOUR (Compensator class)
I think it's already an achievement to finish something so big, it's even more impressive when it's so clean !
The white : All the white areas are airbrushed, in 3 "shades" of white.
The black weathering is very subtle and well made.

bonus : Weapons are magnetized.

Incredible model ! or as Atia would say , "Very Cute" !

Hello everyone !!

Another Play it Painted !! (we are on a roll these days^^)

It's from shadowclaimer :

Lord-Relictor Kitbash that pulls its powers from the Green Wind instead of Amethyst Wind. I used a Kurnoth Hunter Scythe for the weapon instead of a banner, and a Prosecutor head without a plume for his head replacement.

You can check his twitch channel : https://www.twitch.tv/shadowclaimer

Hello everyone :)

Today let's talk about .... Mike's World Eaters army in pre-heresy colors !
What an amazing job painting all these models "WHITE" and keep it clean.

GG Mike !

ps : I still wonder how much time the world eaters artificier would lose to clean the white armor after the bloodshed ^^

Hello everyone !!

After painting the Bloodbowl human team i wanted to focus on trainning my brush skill. I find painting a lot easier with an air brush and sometime i am even scared of when i have to swap to the brush.
i know i need to improve in certain area (all of them) to get a good tabletop quality.

This model : A really old nemo prime in metal. (at least 8 years old)

What i want to train : Contrast and NMM*

NMM* : i hate painting metal, NMM, TMM, gold, cooper, i tried a lot of shortcut with enamel, liquid metal from Vallejo,
airbrush metal from vallejo (incredible paint tbh). but in the end i am never happy with my metal contrast.

I started with a black primer and a grey zenithal to the part i wanted to highlight (the goal is not pre-shading but having a guide to where the points of light are going to be.) Then i cleaned the airbrush and switched to the brush.

For the blue : i started from a Cygnar blue from p3 and shaded it with a succession of thin layer by adding a mix of blue ink from Vallejo and black from gw. then i highlighted with Cygnar highlight (p3) and up to the white. my goal was to get a very strong contrast from nearly white to nearly black on every panel, even the small one !

Grey : Same plan, from, very dark to very light, i simply used a grey (cold grey from Vallejo). shaded with black and highlighted with white. The objective was to make an NMM, some part like the turbine backpack are ok but the staff was a lot harder.

then i painted the rest of the mini :
ps: tried and failed a nmm gold with verdigris effect ^^.
ps2 : the hairs and facial pilosity are a lot more contrasted IRL and a lot less white/yellow.

My conclusion : I learned something important with this project, it's a lot easier to improve if you focus on a technique and don't really care about the final look or about the ten other marines you have to finish ^^.

In this case to be honest the model is old, the sculpt is nothing special and his power level is at the bottom of my faction ! Plus it's metal, i can clean it if i want ^^ Without pressure of messing a unit scheme or something, it was a lot easier to focus on the paint technique. Better train on not important mini, instead of your last forge world primarch.

Time to start a new training project and without blue !!!

tips : it's like Duncan say "Thin your paint"

Hello everyone !!

I finished painting my human team ! (at last)
Using the same method described here : https://war-of-sigmar.herokuapp.com/bloggings/1318

-Still need to do some base marking with number and position.
red stripe on the base for blitzer
yellow for receiver
white for thrower
green for blocker
blue for linemen.

The color code help a lot when playing when there is a jungle of players during block wars !

For the base :
Base of strickland mud
green dry brush (fondation orcish hide)
Lighter green dry brush (p3 base green)
Lighter green dry brush (p3 higlight green)
You can use any green brand of course.

The white stripe are : grey line, then white higlight in the middle.
i did it with an air brush but you can do it just fine with a brush.

Still need to find 2 blitzer and one ogre but for now i use player n°2 and n°3 (both linemen) as blitzer ^^
TBH i am not sure to conserve the shoulders decals i think i prefer it bare !

Pretty happy to conclude this project, i am eager to start an orc players to test some new techniques !!!

Happy painting !!

/cheers.

Play it painted 8 !

Hello everyone !!

It's play it painted Monday and in the end there was no submission (only promise) so i had to step up with a 95% WIP project i started last week, my Stormwall from warmachine. I still need to finish the shoulder crest (X2) + the base + cleanup. But you can see the most of it !

Method :

I painted the blue with my Airbrush using : Cygnar base + cygnar highlight by P3 then more highlight by adding white+grey to the mix, i dont have a very definite formula, i just go with the flow. the shade were made with airbrush too using Signal blue from vallejo, and a last shade by glazing with a brush (GW night drakenshade). I found that for spraying white or very small dot of shade, using Isopropanol 99% as a complement to my thinner is very good ! Make the paint very transparent but not runny as the alcohol dry mid hair !.

The metal is painted with a solid base of the new vallejo Metal Paint (acrylics) Then glaze the recess with nuln oil. Note i plan to get the new metal shade from vallejo, very dark and very thin pigment. Then i highlighted with glaze of liquid silver (alcohol base paint) , the method is super simple dilute the paint with 50% alcohol the glaze over part you want to highlight, you can do multiple layer to brighter finish. This new line of metal paint is Incredible !!

Copper is made with Liquid copper, then argrax earshade glaze then highlight with glaze of oldgold+copper.
Gold : is Old gold + Shinny gold glaze (both liquid metal series by vallejo)

Arcane Coil are : Arcane blue (p3 turquoise) then shade with a bit of blue+turquoise then highlight by adding white to the mix.

Then i made black line to separate part of the model. Note : I really need to try the new vallejo black wash for vehicule, i watched a tutorial video doing great black lining with it !!! Nuln oil dry a bit brown so i have tend to make my own black wash but it's pain to get the good consistency.

ps : I applied a satin varnish to non-metal part to keep the shine !

That's it ! I still need to make the base, the crests and the pods (3 extra models the Stormwall can place during game.). Maybe i do something more for the front swan gold crest but i like it like this !

Tell me what you think of it in comments !!

/Cheers.
