Staz's Metal Theme - Full Core + Wave 1

Recommended Posts

Since this is my first post, I did want to say that I've enjoyed seeing the creativity and skill many of you have demonstrated through your work.  I'm rather new to this kind of game, and I'm not one to typically invest the time to personalize stuff like this, but this community and the passion and quality has been quite inspiring!

It was a rather quick and easy process.  I just spray primer'd them all.  Then a thin coat of the main color (silver - imp, bronze - scum, gold - rebs).  After that dried, I layered on a nearly pure coat of black acrylic ink, then 2-3 coats of dry brushing the main color back over the top.  Then the bases either got the main color or a reddish copper color for the elites.  I could do 10 or so figures in about 2 hours coating all the drying time.  The paint would dry in a matter of minutes, but the ink took about 35 or so.  I used Metallic acrylic and tuned them with water as need be.  It was a lot of fun to do.  I'm just bummed I'm out of figures to paint....

 

I guess you can't really have too many troopers....

I've been thinking about painting my Civilization's figures like that but couldn't think of a way to get a metallic look for all the colors. Thanks for sharing your method.

Thank you all for the kind comments.  

 

The atst and nexu look especially awesome!

Since the concept was devoid of much detail, I was afraid the bigger figures would wind up looking flat.  But, I'm pleasantly surprised by the results!

Wow, these are amazing!  What a great idea!  Personally, I'd prefer to paint my as I have been, but if I ever get one of those crazy zombie games that gives you hundreds of miniatures to paint I'll do this.   

 

Very classy, thanks for sharing!

Had I seen this method, I would have probably just done this for my whole collection instead of buying a whole paint set.

Gorgeous! I still appreciate my progress with real painting techniques, though.
