  1. Showcase: Lambda-class Shuttle

    Here's my attempt:
  2. Panel Lines

    My process is as follows: 1. Base Coat 2. Wash 3. Re-apply Base Coat avoiding the recessed areas 4. Highlight on the top/leading edges. The darkened panel lines are taken care of in step three by avoiding them with the second application of the base coat. Another option would be to paint the base coat and then carefully apply the shadows with a brush or pen, but that requires a lot more precision and time. I let the wash and gravity do that part for me.

    This was clanofwolves’ idea. He sent me the scheme and I just brought them to life!
  4. Piscopas's Paint Log

    Hello, friends. It's been a while. Life has been nuts, but I'm making an effort to focus back on some of my hobby projects. These are my last painted minis of 2017, and I look forward to getting back to my fleets in 2018! Lambda Shuttle: TIE F/O TIE Phantom: The two small ships: Hope you like them! Also, I've started a new hobby blog, which you can find at http://piscopas.wordpress.com if you'd like to check it out.
  5. Showcase: B-wing

    Nice freehand scorpions. That's tiny!
  6. Showcase: Lambda-class Shuttle

    Great job on the dazzle camo! You've got a few weeks before we showcase the Decimators, so you've got o a little time. Haha!
  7. Greetings, Galactic Citizens. It's another week, so time for our next showcase thread. There were some really cool modifications in the B-wing thread! This week we'll be featuring the Seinar Fleet Systems Lambda-class T-4a Shuttle. This versatile ship saw use as a shuttle for high-ranking officials, but could also be pressed into service as a troop or cargo transport. With large hull surfaces to work with, there are some really amazing repaints of this ship floating around, so let's see what you came up with! Don't zoom in on the pictures too much. Keep your distance, but don't look like you're keeping your distance... Back to the Showcase Index
  8. How Do You Do It?

    Yep. Don't be too hard on yourself. It takes years to develop a repertoire of painting techniques and practice to get to the level that some of these guys are able to produce! For beginners, check the Warhammer TV Youtube channel. I know they aren't painting spaceships, but the techniques and color combinations are transferable.
  9. An interesting article on fan service

    You are correct. But as a filmmaker, you have to decide what you're trying to produce. Are you creating a primarily artistic piece, or are you providing entertainment. I feel like the article is trying to say that there is room for both.
  10. Hey, guys. Thought you might enjoy this article. Thoughts? https://fee.org/articles/are-moviemakers-pandering-too-much-to-fans/
  11. wobbly washed panel lines

    If I'm using washes, I lay down a basecoat of my main color, lay down a heavy coat of wash and leave to dry overnight. Then, I go back and paint the main color again, avoiding the recesses, then I apply highlights to raised areas of detail. It can be tedious with larger ship hulls, but it gives me dark shadows and good definition.
  12. Happy Friday

    Cool. I think I'm going to give this list a try!
  13. Happy Friday

    That looks like a fun list. Have you tried the RSV's with R3s instead of Targeting Astromechs?
  14. Showcase: B-wing

    Cool! That last one reminds me of these guys:
