Morning everyone !!

Play it painted monday with Archaon painted by Adam Black ! Special GG to him for finishing a model this big. It look like painting the everchosen wasn't a walk in a park ^^

Quoting Adam :


I got Archaon at the end of 2015 more or less when he first came out, and after a good first month of paint work he spent almost a year sitting on my shelf not getting any love, but then Magnus came along and I promised myself that I couldn't paint Magnus until I finished Archaon, and so at last (more than a year later) he is finally finished!

It's even more impressive. Myself i have a lot of models that have been wip for month. And once my paint drive is turned off i have an hard time finishing them. Or even painting at all :(

I think it would be beneficial for everyone to share motivational tips.
If you are reading this, you can answer the question in comment :

"How do you motivate yourself back in painting models that have been WIP and untouched for many month (or years) ?"

ps: pics are a bit dark check the imgur for original files : http://imgur.com/a/LyLzU

Well done Adam

Morning everyone !!

Today it's play it painted with DonCurrywurst ! and his Wraithseer ( from forgeworld
Very nice blend of blue and the purple shadow works very well.
Great NMM on the lance and super cool power blade effect.
The gems look shinny and deep ! but they are not all painted^^. If i remember correctly there around 150 gems on this model. You better start already if you want to finish in 2017 ;) /jk

Congratulation it's an incredible works and it seem, but i am not 100% sure that you painted it with a brush ? (and not an airbrush?) .

Don't be shy DonCurrywurst tell us more about this model :D

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" !

/cheers.

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 ^^

/cheers.

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.
