  1. I made a step-by-step of how I painted the above logo. It was linked to a Google+ album but since it might be difficult for some to follow, and hoping those of you who want to do freehand but feel it would be too complicated will find it useful and realize how crappy it looks at the beginning, and how you need to stay with it and refine the whole thing Step 1: This is our canvas, the right shoulder of the Szalamandra TAG. I am going to paint the Szalamandra Squadron Logo on it, as seen on the miniature box. Step 2: I take paint and my Raphael #0 brush, and test brushstrokes to ge
  2. So Kuro is recording video! So cool. In his WIP thread, a side discussion about shooting video came up, so I thought it might be nice to have a thread on the topic. Recording, equipment, software, setups; there is a lot that goes into making videos! I did find a thread on software from a couple years back, so there's a starter on that part of the process, but it would be nice to have the different technical aspects in one spot.
  3. Don't know what happened to Doug's Miniature Photography 101 thread that was in here, but I feel this is a very valid thing to have in this area. Found this today while surfing the web and thought it'd be very useful for a lot of us who try to take pics of our figures: TUTORIAL: BEGINNERS GUIDE TO MINIATURE PHOTOGRAPHY
  4. I drilled a hole in a 10x10mm piece of wood. I used first a 5.5mm drill, but needed to make it bigger, I'm not sure if I used a 6.0mm or 6.5mm drill. You can put a dome in the hole and use the wood on sand paper. Don't use to much pressure on it! The piece of wood should not touch the sandpaper! You must end with it before it the sandpaper touch the wood! Check sometimes if you are satisfied with the size before it is to short! On the backside is a small hole to remove the dome. Do not use something to pointy. :-)
  5. I watch yesterday a nice idea in theDMsCraft videos. I was thinking how to do it without having a paper board in the backside. And here is what I got: It is my first try, but I think it could be really good looking with little practice. If you want to do it you need: 1. watch the video below 2. use paper you can eat. It is not really paper. 'Rice paper', 'edible paper' or 'edible waver paper'? 3. do it similiar to the video on the , let some space between the spiral lines 4. put it in warm, not hot water, you can remove it very fast. 5. Do the same lines on the backsi
  6. This stuff is probably WAY beneath the skill level of most people here, but I decided to put up a series of basic YouTube videos about getting minis tabletop-ready. I'm still fiddling with the best format and setup to use. The first couple are online now: Episode 1
  7. So I was commenting on one of Willen's threads and promised I'd post some of my thoughts on blending. Feathering is one of the primary blending techniques I use, and the below is the basic gist of it. Keep in mind that this is a really quick and dirty tut, so it's not the prettiest painting I've ever done, but it should get the idea across. The basic technique comes from the class I took from Rhonda Bender (Wren) at Reapercon 2013. Anything useful you find here should be credited to her; anything that totally destroys your paintjob should be blamed on my poor understanding of her techn
  8. I did it! Some folks asked me to tell them how to use soft pastels for miniatures and I did one better and made my very first video tutorial! Let me know what you think!! ( I also posted this on the Reaper Facebook Group so some of you may have seen it already.)
  9. I did a rough tabletop paint job on this guy while I was building bases. I decided to base him up in an equally quick fashion, since I am not a big fan of broccoli bases. So, in the spirit of spreading what little knowledge I possess I will do a build along WIP on some quick and dirty graveyard bases. I will do two bases out of different materials, and I will list all materials and steps so anyone who wants can build along. You don't need all the materials I list, and you can make this work with pretty much anything you have on hand. C&C encouraged. Materials: Square or round base
  10. Hi all, Here is another one I just finished, the Giant Anglerfish. I also sculpted it, but I'm just going to show the painting steps. To simplify things, any inks referred to in the text are Liquitex Professional Acrylic Inks, and the matte medium is by Liquitex also. White and Black paint is Americana Brand. So, step one is the ubiquitous zenith priming, with black first, then white at an off angle from above, maybe about 60 degrees up (30 deg from nadir). It takes some practice to get the right amount of coverage and the highlights doing this, but it makes washes and glazes easier to
  11. On my WIP thread I am using a piece of plied wire to represent a chain on a character who weilds one. I offered to post a tutorial on the technique, so here we are. Plied wire is a technique used by the Vikings to create jewlery - typically they took four wires of silver or gold and created a bracelet or ring. However, the end result is very chain-like, so I thought it could be useful in miniatures for making a chain. Here are a few examples of the wire: It isn't exactly a chain, but it does read like one. In order to properly do this tutorial, however, I need to start be explaining
  12. I found a tutorial for mud bases. I thinking about make a grass bases for my blood bowl nun team, but the grass is broken with muddy areas. But if the nuns are playing on such a dirty place, they should look more muddy. Does anyone have a tutorial to create clothes and skin with mud on it. Or has example interesting example pictures with a short explanation?
  13. Hiya, folks! Okay, so in response to questions about some of the arcane magicks I've deployed in my Work In Progress threads I'm going to try and narrow down and illustrate a few things and see if they might be helpful to other people. With the rise in popularity of layering techniques, drybrushing was largely relegated to the status of primitive technique. While not suitable for every case, I believe drybrushing is still an essential tool in any painter's arsenal. So what I'm going to try to do in this thread is explain the fundamentals and then give some examples to show that like any te
  14. I haven't posted something here in this WIP forum in...so long I can't even begin to remember. I just sit and think and smoke comes out of my head and gears rattle around and nothing. But anyway. I started a WIP Tutorial type deal on my tumblr and blog *once it's done* and figured why not here too. This project is the Chapel from the Warhammer scenery/terrain line. I'm doing a full buildup from start to finish and showing every step and paint along the way. So here goes. (Tune in daily except weekends as there will be new updates until completion, this is my morning before work proje
  15. Patrick Keith has published an amazing tutorial on his web site dealing with sculpting a sword on an armature. Amazing step by step instructional. You should check it out. http://www.patrickkeith.com/2013/07/sculpting-linna-sword-session-1.html
  16. TUTORIAL WALK THROUGH (Building small 2 wheel gypsy flatbed supply wagon)...as requested by member AnneO'Leary. STEP # 1: (Photo 1)...Basic parts you need to cut... 1. Card stock (2"x3") = wagon bed 2. (8) scale lumber boards = wagon bed 3. (2) scale lumber edge boards = wagon bed 4. (4) heavy scale lumber = wagon under support frame (drill for shaft) 5. (2) wagon wheels = from my parts box 6. (1) brass rod = wheel shaft 7. Assemble these items for wagon bed (Photos 2 & 3) STEP # 2: (Photo 4)... 8. Scribe planks on wagon bed...varied ways of doing...
  17. I'm still fairly new to painting miniatures... But, I would like to paint an assassin/rouge/ninja type miniature wearing all black but I don't want it to look like I just dipped it in black paint. I want to learn how to paint where the black fades to a white light spot. I've tried to copy what I've seen of finished miniatures but it looks terrible. Does anyone know of a step by step tutorial that can help me with this?
  18. Right im not entirely sure if I should post this here or in Painting Tips & Advice, but since its about the kickstarter models i'll put it here. Anyway I wanted to ask if any of you experienced painters might consider doing some sort of video or blog journal of how you go about painting some of these new models? I realize there are already a tone of tutorials out there but as a complete newbie (and I can't stress that word enough) sifting through all those different tutorials and finding a complete and easily to understand one is a bit difficult. So I was thinking it would be quite ni
  19. This is kind of a short tutorial, as I really didn't take a lot of pictures but enough to get the point across, but I hope it's helpful to people. I'm not someone who can draw so doing freehand is something that I can't really do that well. A few weeks ago I was working on a figure for Warmachine and decided I wanted to place a symbol on a cloak, that I knew I wouldn't be able to draw, and thought that maybe I could use decals. I searched and found some decals for Cygnar and read how to use them and realized that it wasn't something worth the effort for me so
  20. It's Mike McVey's tutorial when he was working for WotC. http://www.wizards.com/dnd/article.asp?x=dnd/pp/pp20010607a It's a basic tutorial, but it's solid.
