TallTonyB's requisite paint thread

Recommended Posts

So, I finally got around to starting my painting and modeling. About **** time. Anyway, I don't really expect anyone to take too much of an interest in my stuff since I'm a very mediocre painter, this thread is mostly just for my reference and memories. If you like what you see, let me know what you like about it. If you don't, feel free to give me tips on how to improve. :)

The beginnings of my Daqan command guys:

Army painter's Brown Battleground. I didn't paint it on the command figures, but wish I would have. On the runegolems base I just ran a light wash over it and it looks a lot better through the grass. The non washed looks too bright for my tastes.

It's citadel's Temple Guard Blue

Apparently that translates to 'blue green' for VMC, I may use that for my Golems glow, as I used a similar purple and like the interplay.  Thanks.

Holy crap, he's dual dual weilding. He must be a ranger/ranger.

Yeah, my other one is going to be holding pieces of a reanimate, and a giant battle axe made from a mold of the axe on the boss mech from mechs vs minions.

That's hardcore, what are you using for casting/moulding, I know little of this world.

Not sure yet. Never done it. Thinking about trying to make a mold out of plaster, then maybe just jam in some green stuff. I'll see how that goes and go from there. If you go with more of the blue side when you mix it, it gets pretty hard once it sets.

Plan on trying it this weekend, I'll let you know how it goes. :)

Are you using washes on the whole models?  I'd look at something for the purple so it doesn't appear so flat. Either a back wash or if you're feeling adventurous maybe a red one to blend the purple into the edges.

Yeah, I need to highlight my purples better. Highlighting and washes are still my weak points. I have a hard time getting good shading without just making everything look dirty. Need more practice with that.

Like all good ideas, should I find a way to get spears, totally stealing this.

I actually just made that one completely from scratch just using green stuff. If you go that route, make sure to use more blue than yellow in your green stuff (I did equal parts and it's a bit too bendy for my tastes). Then just use the pose where he has his sword more away from his body, cut right at the seam between the gauntlet and his arm, spin his hand down and chop off the sword parts.

For my next one, I might just try rolling the green stuff for the shaft around a toothpick for rigidity if it doesn't make it too fat.
