  1. Right, so this is probably a stupid question, but I'm gonna ask it anyways, because, well, I'm uncertain. So a week ago, I purchased the D&D/Army Painter Monster Paint Set. Fantastic set, contains more paints than I'll need ever for a decade for a year for an undetermined period of time. Anyways, this set came with three washes - Shadow Wash, Flesh Wash, and Brown Wash. As recommended by several other painters on a different post, I decided I'd use these premade washes rather than the thinned-down paint I had been using in the past. However... I doubted,
  2. Show off might be a bit of a misnomer, I'm not the happiest with these guys, mostly putting this up for tips on what I could do better next time. Paste from final post in WIP thread: Alright "finished" with these guys. When I say "finished" I mean I'm overcoming my perfectionism to move on to something else because they're serviceable. Tried to use some speed painting techniques, but still took way too long, need to work on that. If anyone's got any tips on how I could have made them better without, layering/glazing/something else that takes forever, they would be much appre
  3. I just got into miniature painting and decided to post on the forum to get some feedback and advice. This is only the second miniature I've ever painted. I'm pretty happy with how he turned out despite my lack of experience. I'm thinking of dry brushing his back a bit more for an even more intense frost/ice effect. I plan on varnishing and basing him as soon as the bases I ordered arrived. Any CC is welcome thanks for looking!
  4. Hi again folks, I followed all the instructions. I watched several videos on YouTube. I thought I did everything right.... I tried to do a wash using Reaper Brown Wash. I made sure to thin it a bit with flow improver. I liberally applied the wash mix EXACTLY like i had seen done on every possible video I could watch...but the results were very much NOTHING like I thought they would be. What happened? It basically looks like I just used brown paint...
  5. So, I've been invited to the FLCS to play in an Age of Sigmar scenario. I've never played before, and I don't own many GW minis. I was told that this would not be a problem. Right o' then. Then next step was to figure out what run. Evidently for the scenario I needed to bring some sort of Hero and a pair of units with the minimum number of models to make up each. I downloaded the rules (all four pages of them, shocking coming from GW) and all of the Warscrolls (army lists basically). Reading through the Warscrolls, I finally hit upon something that I already had models for. Orcs. I
  6. OK folks this is my most recent attempt at painting. I decided to do this mini in the color scheme of the Protectorate of Menoth from Warmachine. Basically I am doing a test paint to acclimate myself to the colors and techniques that I will use as I begin painting several minis for the Mk III release of Warmachine. I need some help though, I have had several missteps in this paint thus far and am struggling to see this as a success. 1) How should I highlight the white? Should I do darker tones around the highlight areas? 2) Should I use some liner to try and add some more contrast
  7. I am in a bit of a pickle. I've searched around and tried looking at a few threads but I'd like to post my mini and get some concrete advice on how to proceed. I've thought about just spraying it white again, and keep it with the ghostly green all over, but I'd kind of like some additional detail, and thought the dress was great as blue,. It's the rest that don't want to work. Especially the hair and white threads: Any opinion is valid here. I just mainly need advice on what might work in regards to colour combinations. And maybe some advice on how to shade the white parts proper
  8. Hey all, After sealing my Eregris Darkfathom tonight and reflecting on the experience of painting him, I discovered a few issues with my approach that I would really like to rectify before the next detail heavy mini (read: mini that I spend way too many hours on ). For the glove fringes and the tassles hanging from the pauldrons, I wanted a wash to create depth. However, the actual topography of these features is very shallow, so I had to let the wash sit there pretty heavily basically until it dried naturally (some areas I'll remove pooled wash with a clean brush if it's too much) in o
  9. I'm painting up some good old fashioned aliens in orange space suits, and I'm looking for a good color to use as a wash. I used Black Wash straight out of the bottle but that make it look a bit too dirty. I used Intense Brown but that was too light and didn't provide enough contrast. Any suggestions on what would look good? I'm leaning towards a deep red or maybe Walnut Brown but would love some expert opinions on the subject.
  10. Hey all, SO, I've been scouring the forums here, on CMON, and Dakka; looking into how to mix washes and glazes. I have come away from this a bit confused and little overwhelmed with information I must admit. I completely understand the respective uses of washes and glazes, but, specifically whats confusing me is how I would go about mixing them. Everywhere I look there's a different answer, some people use only water for glazing, others use glazing medium, some matte medium, then some say forget medium it's cheating, and to only use flow improver+water/water alone. Then conversely the
  11. This is a fimir from Forgeworld. I bought a couple for use with the Hero Quest game (I play with my brothers kids). It was the game which got me hooked on the hobby as well back in the day, so the nostalgia vibes are high. ^^ Thought I'd post it here, too. As there was a discussion about painting with washes/glazes, and this miniature is painted that way. Based white, then hit with washes until the correct darkness levels were achieved: Here it was in progress: This is a new photo. It's seen a lot of use on the tabletop since the time it was painted early last year, and s
  12. So I returned from a month long trip in Spain this evening to find a Giant and strange box sitting on my bed. After opening it carefully, thinking it must be a bomb or decapitated head, I was overjoyed to find it was none other than my Bones Kickstarter! REJOICE! After sorting through the sheer rediculous number of miniatures, I realized that I'm going to need some sort of motivation to paint this beastly assortment of minis, and the best way to do that is to showcase my work on the internet as I try to tackle, as quickly as possible, all the Minis I got. The plan is to speed paint them u
  13. Yo, folks. Questions: 1. When using a wash, how does one decide what color to use? I'm working with the Reaper triad, and I also picked up three Citadel shades the other day. Reaper's black I think I get. It gives a lining sort of effect and black shadows, in my early experimenting. The brown seemed to do pretty much obvious stuff with the mini I've tried it on--dirtied it up, gave it some shadows not quite so dark as the black but entirely noticeable. Would it be an avenue to explore for weathering/aging/whatevering wood and/or leather? The flesh wash--should I be trying to hi
  14. I am very happy with all of the advice I got on my last post about varnishing/protecting my miniatures after the paint job is done. I thought I would ask another question about washing. I have a few questions about color combinations and application. 1.) Color combinations. What goes best with certain base colors? I am currently working on a mini with a green cloak, a red leather tunic some brown leather armor, gun metal grey shin guards, a silver sword and shield. What are the best washes to use here? I own some Citadel washes. I have decided that I do not like that these pain
  15. Just curious, but nearly every tutorial i watch has people doing their final washes in a brown or black variant. Is there any reason to not use a wash of the same shade as the general area your washing? Like if you have a large red cloak, washing that area with a thin dark red wash instead of black/brown? Washing purple pants with a dark thin purple wash? Or are targeted washes just too difficult to manage/control? edit: Doh! on the 'doe'
  16. Here are the three most recent things I painted. I painted each of them in about an hour. I didn't prep the minis at all so there are plenty of mold lines.
  17. So, I'm finally making time to paint again. Or, well, I've at least managed to clear a space for painting in order to try and make time in a week when my work schedule goes back to normal a bit. But I've got a question, which I meant to ask back in February when I did LTPKs 1&2, but forgot to. How the heck am I supposed to do washes/glazes/any heavily thinned painting using a wet pallete? I bought one because I didn't want to deal with paints drying on the pallete in the middle of painting, and it works great for that if I'm using paint that's lightly thinned, but once I start trying t
  18. One technique for painting miniatures is pre-washing. You prime the miniature in white, wash (or ink) the miniatures, and the details stand out. The wash also can serve as shading. Bones doesn't require priming, but inks and washes directly applied to a Bones miniature will bead. So how do we pre-wash a Bones miniature, without beading? 1. Mix one drop of clear gesso with one drop of dark paint. (fwiw, Liquitex gesso drops are about twice the size as Reaper paint drops...) 2. Wet your paintbrush, dip in the mixture and paint thinly. 1. Mix four drops of matte to one drop of dark pain
  19. Ok, so I was looking for flow improver today, and Hobby Lobby and Joanne's did not have it. I want to make a wash similar to Les's wash recipes... I have the ink, distilled water, and matte medium, but no flow improver... I've read Future works as a flow improver, also dish soap works... So, anyone have a suggested recipe with the inks, and matte medium?
