Help me out here, fa/tg/uys

I bought myself aspace marines starter painter set about two years ago

I've only opened a couple of pots once, and its been left sitting since then. I just opened my imperial primer, and after stirring the goop inside its grainy as all fuck. Is the consistency supposed to be lke this, or has the paint just dried out?
>>
>>44641272
primer is like that, its meant to provide a more surfaced grip for your paints. even fresh primer is clumpy as fuck. i try to scoop out a clump and mix it with water and mash it in my pallette to get a workable paint

for all your paints, give em a good shake before use, they tend to seperate
>>
>>44641295
I see. I don't actually work on minis, just needed the paints for some detail work.

I was thinking of using the imperial primer as a substitute for black paint, since I only have lacquer black, but I guess its not happening.

Thanks.
>>
>>44641295
Acrylic spray paint primer only. Never look back.

Telling a newbie to paint with clumpy paints is like...

Well, anon, since you're a newbie, just get some decent paints to give yourself half a chance to liking this hobby.

If you stat with some fucked up stuff to begin with, you're just giving yourself a headache and will discourage you.

I build scale models and gundams, but since my question was about citadel paints I figured I might as well ask here instead.

Reposting my shitty cobold, cause I need an advice.
I decided to paint over that "wannabe steel armour" pattern and paint a carapace similar tyranid one (with diagonal stripes). What colour would fit to that mini (which is mostly jade green, and brown). I was thinking about either red/orangge or pale blue.

What are anon opinions/advice.
>>
>>44641490
It leaves a mostly flawless surface with a very fine grit(1500). Great primer and dries fast. You'll need a surface like this to do candy coating.
>>
>>44641928
>You'll need a surface like this to do candy coating

Interesting, but I doubt candy coating would look that good on most wargaming models.
>>
>>44641928
>>44641985
had to look up what that was in relation to models, candy coated eldar or necrons when?

gundam modeling looks pretty cool from what i've seen from the pics in the plamo threads on /toy/ but they look like they cost a fortune
>>
>>44642065
That varies quite a bit, depending on the "grade" of the kit. There are cheaper lower detail kits, and super detailed kits that cost hundreds of dollars each. Most aren't that expensive for their size, as they are mass-produced and in plastic.

Its really just personal preference, but lacquer based primers bonds with the plastic better or so I've heard, curing to a more resistant surface.

>>44642065
Its probably really cheap in comparison to GW models, but if you live anywhere outside of Asia shipping will probably bump the price up quite a bit.

>look papa Sammael, no hands!

Gotta be honest though mate, and I'm not trying to be an asshole, but that colour scheme is atrocious. The models all look less than half-painted and you didn't even bother to 'weld' the gaps on their front mudguards and that literally takes 4 scrapes with the hobby knife.

>tfw my Sammael lost a hand as well.

Yeah I already realized I messed up this army. I like the color scheme myself, just wish it was painted better. It is fun and my own.

As far as modeling goes I dropped the ball big time. Part of wants to go back and fix the mold lines, the other wants to push onward. Any paint besides the command squad, IC and purple on 1/2 of the Landspeeders are only one coat.

I have to do all the tires as well. The guy at my LGS said a heavy black wash over grey primer makes the tires look fine but they look like shit so am going to make them black and wait till I decide what base I am going to use to drybrush them.

He is technically correct though. Glazes are applied after the paint is dry. You're not wet-blending them.

Besides the drybrushing and last part, are you me?>>44643183

I can't post a WIP without everyone telling me my colors are awful so I get no real critique on anything technical (blahblahblah Color Theory is technical. No shit but I have heard it all already.). I find it is best to admire but not envy the artwork you see here. I am glad to field an Army that I put the time into, even if it doesn't look the best. It does hurt my motivation to continue work but in the end I figure I have to finish it and learn my lessons before trying again on my larger Necron force.

My last four games were against grey armies and they can't talk say anything. Even my poorly painted three color, heavily washed army adds something to the table. When I am standing above the table I know which units are mine and they stand out.
>>
>>44645113
Keep in mind that this is the internet, and everyone is anonymous (or is it Alpharius?).

Wanting critique to improve your technique is commendable.
But unfortunately, this is still mostly the internet, and 4chan at that.
As long as you enjoy your army, then that is sufficient.
Most of us are not grand-master painters, even though we like to pretend we are.

Not him but are citadel brushes "real"? 7/12 of my brushes are Citadel.

I took shit care of them too I really should just buy a whole lot of new brushes instead of one at a time. Then I just use the nice new brush till it gets frayed.

>>44645618
Buy some paintbrush cleaner/preserver or just use shampoo and run them under a warm tap, always make sure you're keeping the tip pointed.
>>
>>44645618
You put too much paint on them. they fray like that when the bottom part gets too much paint it in and it solidifies and thus expands between the base of the bristles. take less paint on them and clean the well in water. also dry them well.
>>
>>44641582

Does shampoo work? Probably after I clean them with above.

>>44645708
I always overthin my paints and the brushes suck it right up. I am horibly guilty of never ever cleaning them properly.
>>
>>44645772
IPA will get the paint off, but it'll also dissolve the glue keeping your bristles in. So you may not want to do that.
Brush soap is quite mild, it'll take the paint out, but actually condition the bristles a little bit.
>>
>>44645617
They're from forgeworld.
>>
>>44645772
Isopropyl might damage some brushes, I've used Shampoo since a friend of mine said she uses it to clean makeup brushes after work, I use actual paintbrush cleaner and preserver now but it worked wonders before.

>>44645834

>>44645552
Acrylic film from masterson is something that is intended for wet palettes but it's obviously pricier than parchment paper.

I'm not familiar with army painter brushes, but in my opinion there's no point buying a cheap brush unless it's for drybrushing or liquid masking etc.. Sizes 0-2 for infantry models.

>>44645618
I've never had good experiences with citadel brushes, but at least (some) of them are natural hair ones. IF you're going to buy the new GW brushes get the layer brushes, the "glaze" and "shade" brushes they have are synthetics.

Clean your brushes with brush soap every time you're done painting.

Thin your paints a bit, also try a wash of carroburg crimson in the recesses. I'd honestly suggest not going full on white but rather using an off-white colour for the skin. Also, your paint lid isn't on correctly.

Work up to a lighter skintone (and maybe lighter leather) to offset the darkness of the black and metal. Plus older and stronger orks are canonically the darker skinned ones.

I recommend you apply paint to the areas you want to have a different colour.

No but seriously, if you want it a lighter colour, paint a brown, grey or whatever basecoat over it and layer up. Or just strip it outright because that looks like literally basecolour+wash, no highlights and a very sloppy carapace.

non-metallic metal is very tricky, and incredibly difficult to do well.
There are certainly painters that can pull it off, but it takes a lot of practice to get it right.

What's the best way to clean my brushes? Mineral spirits or alcohol?
>>
>>44648198
I use liquid hand soap, does the job really well.

>>44648150
Use a knife to mark a hole first, with things like bolters it's hard to make it seem off centre since you have so little room to drill anyway.
>>
>>44648198
a proper brush soap is the best otherwise liquid soap or mineral spirit

using strong alchols like isopropyl alcohol can fuck up your brushes

Just got my first Malifaux box for Christmas. I've finished all the assembly.

Is there a "starter kit" for painting that you all would recommend? I've never painted a miniature and I'm not sure where to really begin.

I've seen that Army Painter has a kit with paints and brushes. Is that recommended?

So the youtube guide guy uses lots of Rakarth flesh for his tyranids. I have Kislev flesh. Would this be roughly equivalent if I mixed it with some white or would it look silly?
>>
>>44648427
Do you not live near a GW store, or any FLGS that sells citadel paints? The Kislev is a more flesh coloured paint while Rakarth is a pale-white tone, it's probably eaiser for the sake of consitency to just use that if you can.

I like it, drill your bolter though. There's a few spots missing but since it's WIP I won't nitpick too much. Have you tried using screemer pink and pink horror for your wax on Blood Angels? It helps them stand out from the red on their armour.

you'll probably need brighter highlights on that green so it doesn't look too dark/muddy next to robes that white. nice work on the robes though, they have a nice sense of volume (beyond the obvious fact it's a 3d object)

I've found drybrushing robes works pretty well, I'd get a picture but I'm not at home. It comes with the downside that you either need to be neat or do the robes first which you then risk fucking up when painting other parts of the model.

That's a possibility, it's already got the mounts for double heavy bolter so I could do a mini mammoth thing.

>>44652526
Looks pretty solid anon, hang in there, you can do this.

>>44653027
Really good for someone who started recently. You can easily improve that paintjob by giving his skin a thinned down wash with reikland flesh. Also a few careful highlights on his pants and weapons will look great. Try your hand and this, be careful and take your time, that's the most important part of any paintjob.


I'm still busy with me ECs, my progress is painfully slow. At least it'll be hopefully be done by monday.

Very solid first minature. I'd probably give the horns a wash of something like Agrax Earthshade and then highlight with a lighter colour and this is more of a nitpick but the shade of red feels a bit too bright, Khorne Red with highlights of Kindleflame might work better. Also, no BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD technical paint for a Khorne army? Shame.

Hot hot water and some heavy weight on a flat surface.

>>44654104
Soak in hot water.

>>44654104
Dip it into hot or boiling water. Resin becomes bendy and malable when exposed to high temperatures. Put it into the shape that you want it to be and wait for it to cool down for about 5 minutes.
>>
>>44653813
Don't paint white.

Try using off-white colours, stuff like Ulthuan Grey. I think even the new Ceramite White isn't actually white but a slightly off-white. Also THIN YOUR FUCKING PAINTS.
>>
>>44652643
Hey, thanks. I had intended to just leave the green the way it was. Kind of plain and dull looking, as bright, polished armour doesn't mesh entirely with how I picture the Dark Angels in my head.
But I definitely see what you're saying about it maybe looking to dark/muddy compared to the much lighter robes. So yeah, maybe the green does need a lighter highlight just so it doesn't end up looking to black. Cheers for the advice.

>>44652749
>if i try to highlight then the paint always gets into the recesses and fucks it up
This is the exact problem I was expecting to run into with the robes. I think I managed to avoid it well enough on the legs, but I need to fix up the chest a bit.
What kit is that power fist from? It's not one I recognise. (I do like the two tone look you went for, as well. Might have to steal that.)

>>44652991
I look forward to seeing what you come up with.

>>44653027
Good start, for a newbie. You can paint within the lines neat enough, so well done.
I think the model would benefit greatly from a wash of some description. Especially the helmet. After that, some highlights would really help bring your model up to the next level.

Thanks! I'm keeping the spirit alive by doing one set somewhat finished at a time. This way I get an idea of how the finished model will look when all ready.

When loosing focus and put down the brush half way in, as I have on just about every project during the past few months, its hard to see the end result doing one color at a time. This trick lets me have some of the good feeling you get when you finished a project, yet still keep on painting!

Looks pretty baller, what's the main color on the panels?
>>
>>44655862

Its German gray from Vallejo on a black primer, highlighted with light gray from the same, and finally nudged with 50/50 white/light gray, I swabbed the whole tank in nuln oil and water mix, and later Ill ad some edge of almost pure white, and silver on the thorn parts.

Its all painted with the hairspray technique, doing a base of different browns and rust colors. Then "re-basing" with black after 2-3 layers of hairspray, working myself up to the gray I want. When dry, go over the whole miniature with a wet (and not in use) toothbrush, working with a small wet brush in between, and you get a great realistic weathering effect.

>>44658866
If you are cool with Mega armor you could probably easily make the models look a little bigger by adding a few mm worth of plasticcard between the parts.
Would be the easiest way to make a bigger than usual warboss.
Aside from that I'd look into 3rd party Ogres and similar miniatures with a hunched posture that you can tack a GW ork head on.
Depending on what exactly you want of course.

Anon, they're just kobolds. They spawn in waves and die in one hit. Don't burn yourself out trying to paint them all to golden demon standard; your friends will not notice even if you did.

Like you said, their models are basically shit. So paint them to a tabletop standard and move on. Save your effort for heroes, minibosses, and bosses. The 16-bit's can get a bit of attention, too, I suppose.

I've been painting minis since 1998 and there are people itt who weren't even born when I started painting and can paint better than me. That's just the way things are dawg. We can't all be born prodigies but I'm convinced everyone can learn to be good enough to enjoy painting.

It honestly sounds like you're just trying to move too fast. I still haven't tried using a wet pallette because it sounds weird and scary, when I'd only been painting for one year I was still doing a single coat of each colour over white primer. Just focus on basecoating your minis neatly, that's step one. Practice until you can do that well. Throw a brown wash over the entire thing and you're "battlefield-ready". Once you've production-lined fifty plastic dudes to battlefield-ready, think about doing a midtone/highlight.

If you aren't a prodigy then you can't rush it, it's like trying to do a guitar solo before you know how to play chords.

And don't post pics of anything (literally anything, your bike, your dog, your short, whatever) on 4chins if you aren't prepared to receive at least one awful, mean-spirited, not even remotely constructive comment, that's just the name of the game.

This has been a problem with GW kits since the late 2000s and it's only gotten worse with time imo, more detail, less customizeability. A duncie video made me look at DE models on their webstore and I was disgusted to note that they didn't even have head variants for plastic hq kits

Yeah I've found that the arms at least can be swapped around with little issue, which is helping somewhat, but goddamn there's a couple things, like the wicked sweet looking arquebus, that definitely look samey.

I mean, it is admech so if there's any army I can get away with having uniformity, it'll be them, but still.

Makes me wonder what I've gotten myself into since I'm only about halfway through the initial 30 and have 3 "getting started boxes" that will be showing up soon.

Also, anyone know where I can get mechanicus decals in Red? I'm making metallica and their accents are red on white robes.

Anon a year is nothing for the average person. I've been painting miniatures and models since I was 7 years old and I love to look back at my old models and see how far I've come over 15 years of painting. If you wanna improve quick in painting, work on patience. If you want some practice just grab a well sculpted figure and just practice techniques on it, like glazing and shading and NMM. After your done strip him and do it again. Its gonna take time. Alot of time. If you stick with it and practice you'll get to a point that you will like your work and you can improve past that. Also I find painting and prepping therapeutic and enjoyable, just finding time is hard. Stick with it friend, you'll do fine

The one called "Warhammer 40k" with like 23 fucking thousand people in it, aka the 40k group.

And yeah, they're almost all closed. It's the only way to keep this shit from popping up on normal friends newsfeeds.
>>
>>44660974
so I've done this. and to be honest it's a risk, my advice is try to keep it as cheap as possible.

Metal is always the easiest (and everyone knows this as a quick dip in turpentine an you're good to go) but can go for higher and plastic can be tricky. I love people who use the black primer and super glue on plastics they are the easiest to clean and the glue can just melt away sometimes leaving very little trace it was ever there. White primers are difficult because it is actually a primer and can be a complete pain in the ass, plastic glue needs to be broken off and does not dissolve in alcohol like super glue.

I have these scouts plastic kit that has had three different layers of paint two of them gw paint but the first coat is this really stubborn and thick stuff that needs scraping to remove. I also had a metal dread that was painted in enamel.

My method is really focus on local sources, those will give best prices <$1 per figure I then separate the ones I want, and if its a group like tactical, I test clean one. If the test goes easy I keep the group, if not I really have to consider how badly I want them. Most of the time the hard to clean get sold on auction, and let someone else deal with it. there are some auctions that for whatever reason go unnoticed and I pick those up but you really should study the market so that in case they are a pain you can easily recoup your money.

So far all of my models have been secondhand and if you count sales I've paid very little for them. sure, I lose out on custom stuff sometimes but they still look pretty good. also I stay away from finecast like the plague.

Chaos Lord (still very WIP, haven't done any tidying or anything) first time I've really attempted to do black armour with anything other than edge highlighting, trying to go for the traditional Chaos Warriors black armour with gold + silver details.

I tried my hand at a bit of lighting which I think went okay, but when I started adding the yellow and gold to the armour the contrast made the distinctions in the black harder to see.

Now I'm worried that the black and the gold will just look like ever hobbyists' first crappy attempts at black legion rather than a nicely painted model.

Should I just give up, paint the armour silver and wash it black a few times?
>>
>>44661592
Just to reiterate- I know the detail is sloppy and unfinished but I'm asking about the black.
>>
>>44660692

Back when WD was the Kool Kidz Klub ;_;
>>
>>44661592

eh, the black highlights look strong enough to me in that particularly pic. Lame though the answer may be, I'd have to see the final model to tell you if the contrast is messing it up.

If you feel that it's too strong a contrast, just wash the gold with brown or sepia until it's not too much of a contrast

So I'm thinking about painting a Flesh Tearers army.

Sice I know there's loads of people painting BA here, do you guys think it would be possible to use the new kits for BA to make FT, with replacing the pauldrons the biggest step forward or is the winged iconography too present on the models and I'd be better off with standard marines?
>>
>>44662421
I think a good idea would be to mix bits from both,or atleast thats what i did

>>44657431
Just do a simple line along the bottom for starters.

>>44656792
It`s 40K mate. Your army can be whatever you want it to be. Remember that Khorne is the god of war, and close combat is just one aspect of warfare. Ranged weapons are also right up his alley. Just look at Skullcannons and the Lord of skulls.
While on the subject, I like the idea of a Warpsmith of Khorne who is obsessed with always making more effective weapons and warmachines to better wage war in Khorne´s glory.

If you use the "prime" offer, not the other sellers, then shipping to the Netherlands is listed as $8,19. But it may take a week or two to arrive.

Not sure if that's just to NL, but if it applies to other countries in the EU, that's quite reasonable.

Do keep in mind that customs will probably charge you VAT and processing costs if the package is inspected (it might not be, but there's always a chance).

No, but neither do any light-therapy lamps, which is the effect described by >>44660573.
It's not necessarily vitamin D production that has that effect, but the light (which is mostly simulated sunlight, minus the UV) still has a positive effect.

And the latter, which I think is a bit more viable with not as much converting.

You don't mix it with water in the most cases. Its already highly diluted paint.

Matte varnish will look matte. its used to remove the shine.
There is gloss varnish if you want to have it shine.

Oh shit. It would have been quite the surprise. And the trouble to explain that to my housemates.

I hope that take away food was worth it.

Enamel paints (or emaille depending on language) are solvent based, they tend to be more durable, and tend to cover better as denser pigments can be used thanks to the solvents.
They are trickier to work with as you need thinner and such to thin it down or clean your brushes.

Acrylics are water-based, so they can be thinned with water (or acrylic medium), and water can be used for your brush cleaning need with a little brush soap.

Also, Acrylic paints dry much quicker than enamels do. They're touch dry in minutes, rather than hours.

I don't. That's a shitty way to use a wet palette because the amount of water it can hold is so small.

I would add one more highlight on the medium blue around the eyes, it's a bit flat, and like the other guy said, white dots for light source.

That said, you've already done this technique better than I can do it, and it's also good that you didn't get carried away and slather/drybrush blue glow effect over 2/3rds of face and shoulders because a lot of people succumb to that temptation and it always looks bad. Subtlety is always better, but I still think it could stand to be brightened up a bit

the most important thing: acrylic paint doesn't smell as bad as enamel paint. It doesn't smell at all actually.

I've been hoping to see something exactly like that, thanks anon
