  1. Ha yeah that one on the robe was tough, I was scared to grind it down and mess up the detail of the coat.
  2. Commissioned: Oni of Hate, from Rising Sun. Could have made the flames a little more contrasty for sure. More lighter yellows and whites. It was taking too long though, needed to wrap it up. Any c&c appreciated.
  3. Thanks for the suggestion, it would have been difficult to get it finished on time if I was to try that but next time for sure. I haven't manipulated this type of hard plastic in that bulk before, so didn't want to try to squeeze it in.
  4. Original model, from board game Wander: Cult of Barnacle Bay, by Panda Cult Games. Customer requested a trident in the hand and a base. Couldn't find a freekkkin trident anywhere except some European company that couldn't get it here until after the deadline, so I had to mod a spear. Finished Product follows: C&C or things to do better next time would be much appreciated.
  5. Been painting Blood Rage again, for a friend, and thought I'd post the pics of what I got so far for the big guys. Most of the shading and detail work done, planning on making the skin less glossy by finish and still need to base. Any C&C welcome. P.S. "Frost giant says pls no I'm not ready."
  6. It doesn't seem to , same speed to get up to full pressure, just drops after I start painting. I haven't had it for very long, under a year. I also don't use it very frequently. I may have put some extra strain on it by leaving it pressured up all the time though.
  7. It doesn't ever, I usually leave the compressor on with a quick release valve on it that I just slot the airbrush into. Maybe I shouldn't be doing that? Also the compressor is also a paasche brand compressor, came with the brush. I'll check the model number later.
  8. It's an auto shut off tank, it turns on for a few seconds when you power it on, and then turns off until air is released. So if the filters weren't tight, I believe it would turn on every few seconds? There is no sound of leaking either. The Airbrush works fine at first it's just problematic for getting even coats if the pressure drops down to 5psi. Would it be the motor if the compressor has no trouble running without the brush connected?
  9. So today when I started airbrushing, I noticed that after I sprayed a bit the pressure on the tank was dropping, which made it difficult to get an even coverage. I'd start at around 15psi, and it would hold for a couple seconds, then drop steadily until it was down at 5psi. Turning up the pressure did not help, it still dropped psi. I took out the needle and checked and cleaned it and the rest of the ab, then tried just shooting air through, without needle or anything but the nozzle lever. Same result. Seals are airtight at least until I start shooting air through. I have a Paasche TG-3F, bought it with the compressor in a package deal, compressor has a humidity filter on it. EDIT: Just noticed that while air is going through the airbrush, adjusting the pressure does nothing at all. I can turn it up or down and it stays at 5psi. Unless I reduce the pressure below 5psi, then it goes down. Adjusting the pressure when I release the airbrush changes psi normally.
  10. If you are playing gloomhaven or plan to and do not want to be spoiled to the unlocked classes stop reading here. This is the class with the sun icon Last warning to avoid spoilers. Just finished up the Sunkeeper for Gloomhaven, I think I'm gradually overcoming my fear of highlighting. As always, C&C greatly appreciated for things to do better next time or general tips. Work Process (as far as I can remember) Primed in white, followed up with gunmetal grey over most of the figure, except for obvious cloth, highlighted some of the armor with chrome, detailed the clothes, then added royal gold for the gold, washed straight black for the crevices in the armor, followed up with aztec gold, gradually mixed with lemon yellow, then a hansa yellow transparent for the final highlight. Cloak and cloth were in there somewhere with crimson to scarlet to pink, washed dark red and blended. Hair was pretty much just white washed black highlighted white. Face went through a ton of phases but mostly caucasian fleshtone mixed with pink and a touch of burnt sienna, dropped the sienna when highlighting. Cobbles on the base were greenstuff'd then used matt gel with some burnt umber for dirt, scattered pebbles and grass, after set followed up with some matte varnish and a touch of gloss on the cobbles. WIP here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/81555-spoilers-sun-class/ Harsh Lighting Soft Lighting Base
  11. Thanks for the help @LarsM I highlighted the cobbles a bit but decided to leave the loose stones how they were, but with a matt varnish. Harsh Lighting Soft Lighting Base
  12. I highlighted the armor more, gonna post pics soon, the thing about the ground is a good idea, the original idea was the base is some sort of ruins, so it would be hard stone. I brushed off some of the loose stone though so it's less saturated.
  13. This is the unlocked class with the Sun icon. If you do not want spoilers stop reading now. --------------------------------------------- I was wanting some c&c, if I could get it, on several areas. The mouth and the base are the main ones, so if anyone has any critique for those that would be helpful. I'm also thinking of highlighting the gold armor a bit more, any thoughts?
