Adventures in Airbrushing part 2

7 posts in this topic

As I continue to learn airbrushing, I've been experimenting with some larger minis.

This Bones Griffin was one of the minis I sent in the Summer Mini Exchange.  Everything except for the eyes, beak, and claws used the airbrush.  Even the wash was sprayed on using the airbrush which took a couple of tries to get he mix right.

I've had this metal Huge Spider sitting around for many years so I finally decided to give it a go.  In hindsight, I wish I would have painted the parts first then put it together.  I only used a traditional brush on the eyes.

Lastly is Cadirith the Demonic Colossal Spider.  And this ting is truly Colossal.  It's base is about the same size as a CD (remember those).

Again, I really wish I would have painted it before I put it together.  Airbrishing around the legs all assembled was a nightmare and I think I would have done more striping if it was pre-assembled.  I used a traditional brush on the eyes, bones, and spikes.

What is it with everyone painting creepy spiders recently? I creeped myself out looking at reference photos so the spider I need to paint is still benignly primed.

 

These look great and scary. I really like the griffon and I like how you reversed the colors on the wings making the longer feathers be the darkest bits. Judging by these examples, I'd say you've got the hang of your airbrush!

Pochi, I don't know about the rest of the spiders, but all these Cadiriths posted lately are clearly the universe's way of mocking me for failing to ever complete mine.  

 

Ebon, keep working that airbrush!  Whatever you're doing, it is really working.

Looking at your work, makes me want to buy an airbrush.

They look really great and the griffon is awsome! 

 

Is it possible to use an airbrush in a small indoor room, I guess you need some ventilation? And some space around, I imagine it easily beeing a bit of a mess with paint everywhere..??

I use a spraycan for priming, but I do that outside.

      Hello all,
       
      Probably one of the first bones mini i bought (it came in a kickstarter lot) and one I was longing to paint. Job done, in a kinda dark theme but overall happy about the result. Let me know what you guys think!
       
      Cheers

      I don't even know what this model is in Oldhammer, let along Age of Sigmar. But I liked it (part of a big army deal with rats and elves, I play the rats) and wanted to paint something not Undead, not rats, and to help build my KoW collection (my opponents now use him as a Drakon Lord). My NMM gold always turns out a lot better than my NMM silver, so I decided my elves, when I eventually paint them, will have gold in their scheme.

      I know I'm terribly late getting this on here, but here's the completed work of my Griffon Samurai! I entered 2 pieces in the Painters category at ReaperCon and this is the one they decided to judge. I couldn't believe my ears when they called my name for a gold medal!! At first I was certain that I missed my name for the bronze or silver categories! I owe it all to the wonderful tutelage of my husband!! He taught me what he knew and gave me the encouragement and motivation to keep going when I wanted to give up! I am truly blessed!! 
       
       


       
      Whelp, as some have already said, it's all down hill from here! I'm already thinking of ideas for my next piece (possibly a diarama). Thanks again to everyone who has given constructive criticism and encouragement since I joined this forum!! You all are the best!!!

      Hey again, after some work, I have now finished another miniature to the point where I am happy to show it off!  This time it is the Reaper Bones Griffon miniature,  I have been fairly traditional with this one, using Army Painter Warpaints and Quickshade Inks.   I think I have done a fairly good job on this one, comments, criticisms, and advice all gratefully received!!

      I need some advice from the Bones repositioners/modifiers out there.
       
      I currently have Cadirith (with another on the way) that I am planning on modifying in to an Arachnarok Spider for Age of Sigmar.  I've already figured out how to make and attach the Howdah to carry the goblins.  The question I have is the best way to reposition the legs.  They come in 4 sets of two and and are basically either parallel to each other or overlapping.  What would be the best way to get some separation between the legs?  Boil and reposition?  Cut and angle and glue?  My concern with the boiling would be bending the tabs out of position so they wouldn't seat flush anymore.  And for cutting, where?  At the joint where the join the body or at one of the joints on the legs?
       
      Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.  If anyone has trouble understanding my rambling train of thought, I can take some pictures if needed.
