Painting Tutorial : Quick Non Metallic Metal with Contrast Paint

Tags : hobby tutorial painting

Small thumb 75412216 439814913400545 589192435528105984 n

Hello everyone !!

Since the Contrast Paints have been released I have been trying a lot different ways to paint weapons. Also, these days pro painters make NMM with a very dark flat section of the blade and a white part on the edge. As i am painting an IronJaws army, i wanted to have this style of Nmm on my weapons. Off course as i plan to have two max units of Black Orcs i needed a time efficient way of painting weapons.

Painting Steps list

I just want to share the steps before showing details just so you know where this is going.


  • Prime white

  • Paint the blade with Contrast Space Wolves Grey

  • Highlight the edge surface of the blade with Fenrisian Grey

  • Highlight the edge surface of the blade with Fenrisian Grey + White at 50/50

  • Highlight the edge surface of the blade with Fenrisian Grey + White at 20/80

  • Highlight the edge surface of the blade with White (i used pure white but didn't cleaned my Air Brush so there was a little of Fenrisian Grey)

  • Shade the flat side of the blade with Abyssal Blue

  • White Lining on weapon and on the scars

The Method

The method is quite easy and I made some photos to show what I did on the weapon.

Priming white

nmm painting tutorial with contrast paints

Simply primed the weapon in white with my airbrush and some white Stynylrez. Don't forget that if your priming is not very thin/flat the contrast paint is not going to flow well and make bad streak. In this scenario just apply a thin coat of Gloss Varnish to help the contrast paint to flow better.

Basing

One thin coat of undiluted Contrast Space Wolves Grey. Just avoid too much pooling but it's super easy to do.

Higlight of the Edge

nmm painting tutorial with contrast paints

Highlights the edge of the blade (on the right of the dark line) with Fenrisian Grey. I use an Airbrush because it's faster but it's 100% doable with a brush ^^ On this blade I Highlight the white circle and in the direction of the arrows, knowing that my brightest spot is going to be there. Don't make an opaque coat, try to keep some of the color showing under to make it more interesting.

First Highlight of the blade edge.

More highlight including more and more white.

Final Highlight (i notice that i forgot to highlight the circle)

Shading of the Flat

nmm painting tutorial with contrast paints

Then I am going to shade the flat section of the blade (left of the white line). Shading using Abyssal Blue from scale 75 in the direction of the white arrow.

Alternate paints option: Dark Reaper GW, Dark sea blue from Vallejo, coal-black from P3. All are dark blue with a tint of green.

Both side of the blade once shaded.

White edge Highlight

nmm painting tutorial with contrast paints

Here do an edge Highlight with pure white and draw a line between the edge and flat section. You can use pure white or add a little bit of blue. Depend on what you prefer. You can also mark the scratch with some pure light dot.

Final Result

nmm painting tutorial with contrast paints

That's it for this short tutorial on how to make a quick NMM. It's really easy and looks quite good on the board. Off course if you want to up your game you can add red or brown on the flat and blood for the blood god marks. I'll do it tomorrow and update the post.

Stuffs

Airbrush : Iwata (0.3) and h&s evolution (0.5)
Brush : Redgrassgames (both of them)
Primer : Stynylrez

Tags : hobby tutorial magnet aeronautica imperialis

Small thumb plancover

Hello everyone !!!

Now that Aeronautica Imperialis has been released, you maybe wondering what is the best choice for the Thunderbolt : Fury or Standard. The best choice is BOTH ! in fact the Thunderbolt is quite easy to magnetise if you follow this simple : How to magnetize a Thunderbolt Tutorial !!

The plan is to Magnetise the Body and The wings to hold the weapons noses and switch them when you need too. Allowing you to open the plan and close it when you need to change the nose.

Magnetize tutorial thunderbolt aeronautica imperialis magnet

1) Assemble both noses and weapons

The sprue have both weapons and nose so you just have to assemble both of them, super straight forward.

Magnetize tutorial thunderbolt aeronautica imperialis magnet

2) Assemble the main body of the plane

Tails, reactors, Engine, thrusther, take a few minutes and glue all that.

Magnetize tutorial thunderbolt aeronautica imperialis magnet

3) Assemble the wings of the plane

Nearly nothing assemble here, just clean the wings and glue the small reactors.

Magnetize tutorial thunderbolt aeronautica imperialis magnet

4) Gluing the First magnet in the plane body

I used 2 neodyme Magnets 4mm diameter and 2mm hight
Magnetize tutorial thunderbolt aeronautica imperialis magnet

Glue it like on the image (red circle) , there is a little hole that fit perfectly.

5) Gluing the Second magnet in wings

Cut a 1 cm sprue plastic stick. Glue it like on the picture (green contour) and then glue the magnet on it(red circle ! Don't screw up with the positive-negative side.

Magnetize tutorial thunderbolt aeronautica imperialis magnet

6) Enjoying your plane and extra tips !


  • Before assembling wait the glue to be completely Dry !

  • Do a mark with a pen on the Magnet to prevent screwing up the side

  • Prime the model UNASSEMBLED

  • Once Primed don't hesitate to file the connector to remove dried paint primer that could stuck the wing

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 !
