  1. Looking for some advice on using inks in painting. So I've seen people using inks and spouting praise about their uses with mini painting. Especially for glazing purposes. I got a set of cheaper inks last christmas, but they really didn't play nice. They were constantly rehydrating. Even with a protective layer of spray varnish. As soon as I painted over top of it, the color would bleed back up. Anyone know what I was doing wrong? Or if I was using a kind of ink that wasn't compatible? I bought a set of 10 colors from amazon - ZZKOKO caligraphy pen ink. I got
  2. In a post Bones IV world there are lot more translucent miniatures in circulation. You may have had the same reaction I had, where I thought they were neat, but had no idea what to do with these things. Well, today was the day I decided I was going to try a few different experiments with painting these things to see what would happen. I did try an experiment once before with some purple translucent modes from bones 3, where I put a black wash over them. I was not happy with those results. They turned out looking opaque black with purple highlights from a distance, and translucent against a lig
  3. Hi all, It has been a while since the last post, but here is a quick, step-by-step painting guide to the Silver Death Fish for DeepWars. This model is suspiciously similar to an ancient Xiphactinus fish, but has slightly different fins, with a few finlets near the tail like a tuna. This model was primed in white and painted using the techniques very similar to the Dire Fish-Lizard from the AMG painting guide, Painting Scaly Beasts. The key was to use washes and glazes to give it the basic colors, then lighten sections with thinned white paint and make edges pop with pure white. The majori
  4. I present Unit R.Snog, a quick ink-job over lunch break. He is somewhat unique in that he told me his name before I'd painted his head or face. "Snog" means "kissing" in British and "grass snake" in Danish, so one can only guess at his mission and operational parameters.
  5. This is a quick post - pics will follow shortly from my phone. You can see the WIP with recipe and process pics by clicking on the link back there.
  6. In between base coats of glow in the dark medium for specter #2 I decided to unwrap and quick paint the slimes with ink. What follows is, to my belief, THE green slime recipe.
  7. Today, I have a bit of time. Not enough to really paint, but enough to do something that may be useful to me AND to other forum-ites. A week or so ago I bought those Badger Freak Flex translucent paints. I already had a bunch (but not all of) the Reaper Clear paints, and a few liquitex acrylic artist inks. I'm going to do a comparison on some paper. I think straight up, and then below 1:1 with matte medium In all I think it's about 20 colours, and I'll try to keep stuff clearly defined by brand and color. I suppose doing this over something like newsprint would be better, but I don'
  8. I recently got a set of Liquitex inks as an early Christmas gift. It came with 6 different colors that I plan on making washes out of. However, one of the colors is titanium white, could I make a wash out of white? What could a white wash be used for? Are there other fun things I can do with these that isn't limited to making washes? I know very little about inks in general so any other advice on how to use them would be great.
  9. With tax returns coming soon, I'm looking to invest in some more tools to facilitate cranking out better minis! I'll first lay out what I have so far, followed by what I'm looking to get, and I'd like tips on those things and any I may have missed. For those that would like to participate, please share your opinions based on your own experience and please be specific with brands/models and your experience! "I have a Donegan OptiVisor 3.5x at 4" and it helps me see finer detail on 25mm heroic minis" is loads more helpful than "You should get a magnification source". I've come to greatly tru
  10. So here's my latest completed mini. Other than the base coating, which I did last week in Reaper pure black and Vallejo Game Model Color German cammo black brown, I knocked him out in about 3 hours this evening. I still have a small amount of touch-up work to do (at least a second coat on the base) but he is essentially done. I tried a few new things with this guy, and I am very happy with how he turned out. First, I tried painting blue gemstones on the hilt of the sword, which I think came out pretty good for my first attempt at doing them. I also made use of my Army Painter inks, using b
  11. Edited now that I'm back home... I started this mini on Friday, and tried to do a centre-out light-to-dark translucent paint job. The Badger Freak Flex tints just beaded up in an initial coat - even when adding medium it didn't help. I had nothing to get the centre yellow without going opaque which I didn't want to do at this point. I then took my Napthol Crimson (Red) Liquitex ink and added a drop to some medium and that went on fine. I forgot that Burnt Umber is very orange, and if I'd done that first I could have tried to do something interesting with the shadows in red. Oops! Attempt
  12. Here is Enigma Miniatures Lox Jarg, Wings of Dishonor (ENM3041). His skin and feathers were all done in Ghoul Skin, washed in black, and highlighted with white. Then I applied varying amounts of blue and yellow ink. I'm pretty happy with the way it came out. As always, C & C welcome!
  13. I was just wondering if alcohol inks were safe to use with minis painting. I've found a way to get some extremely cheaply, but I wasn't sure if it would work well for miniature painting. Basically, it's ink suspended in 70% isopropyl alcohol. Would that strip any of the paint off? Is sealing the paint job with testor's dullcote first necessary? Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
  14. Probably the answer is obvious but I don't know. Just scored a bunch of P3 paint for a buck fiffy a pottle (cus hey, a painter without paint is like a duck with no feathers). The guy at the store said "I'm sorry, I don't know. I've never painted a miniature in my life. I play boardgames." He was nice though. So what do you do with ink? Because they also had Vallejo ink AND wash, so I guess they aren't the same thing. Those weren't marked down but I was happy to see something other than GW paint for a change. Thanks to ye, O learned oracles of the Reaper boards, for speaking wisd
  15. I've found a method of producing extremely cheap, but effective inks for washing your miniatures! It involves stuff you can find for very cheap at your local dollar store, so here's hoping this helps some people. WARNING: Please, only use this stuff if your miniature is properly layered with paint. Do not use this if you paint in thick layers as the alcohol will strip a few layers of paint before it drys completely. If layered properly, the paint job will not be affected noticeably. Make sure before using this stuff your paint is 100% cured. When in doubt, wait a day. Step 1. Go to you
