As some of you know, @buglips*the*goblin and I paint some German Infantry of WWII for Warlord Games tabletop game Bolt Action - or another similar set of rules. You can find our WIP thread ->here<-
But though the key to success is hard work, all good projects some when end somewhere. To celebrate this, we decided to set up a Show Off thread. So ... enjoy what we come up with until all of our Germans are painted ... (which will be in ten years or so)
First off - the first 5 men of my winter unit.
More to come!
@buglips*the*goblin You're next.
I'm taking the leap and about to buy my first airbrush for mini painting and was hoping I could get some advice on what to buy. The Airbrushing: compendium has been very helpful and I've spent hours, days, what feels like years researching and I want to pull the trigger... I live in Canada and after ringing around some hobbyshops etc it seems amazon is the best bang for my buck. I have paint and access to a Campbell Hausfeld 2 Gallon Air Compressor (I will purchase another compressor in a few months once I have some more disposable income). My main concerns are does this compressor work with the airbrush listed below, do I need anything else? Heres what I've got in mind: NEO CN GRAVITY-FEED DUAL-ACTION AIRBRUSH $97.20 CAD Paasche 10-foot Nylon Braided Hose $18 CAD Airbrush Cleaner 4 Kit, Washing Tools - Glass Cleaning Pot etc $22 CAD Vallejo Airbrush Cleaner 85ml $7 CAD any advice would be appreciated
And we are done. My work for a painting competition at the German wargaming forum. Topic: Fairytale-like. WIP check ->here<-
As with my girl in a dying world (check ->here<-), the whole thing consists of a background text and the paintjob. Enjoy.
NOCH EIN BIER
Near the town you’ll find Gwen’s bar,
Where people meet from near and far
A girl is sitting at the desk
Blonde is her hair, ample her chest
A mug of Gwen’s finest ales
She does not drink, rather inhales.
Near the town down at the floor
The first of Gwens guests feel quite sore
The girl now sits on top a tun
Her evening starts, she has got fun
She drinks like there is no tomorrow
Her liver stricken with much sorrow.
Near the town you hear the clock
“It’s half past one – tick-tock, tick tock!”
The girl just changed to honey wine
Because she thinks “that’s also fine.”
Her cheeks have turned from pale to red
And still she’s not going to bed.
The night finally settled down
At Gwen’s bar close to the town
The girl is snoring on top the tun
This evening sure was real fun
Her consciousness is now on strike
Soon she’ll wake up fairytale-like.
And here she is:
And some over-highlighted pictures to show what the colours look like when looking closely. But from a bit of a distance, it's okay.
These are from the Ghosts of Midlam Manor Kickstarter. I love these sculpts and I just got an airbrush, so I wanted to try sort of a blue zenithal ghost effect. They are more blue than the camera shows, I'm still getting used to the photo booth and lighting. (Plus I should probably use the real camera instead of my phone.)
Overall I'm happy!
As with the other ghosts, I was playing around with quickly airbrushing a ghost effect. I liked the green tone of these Bones 4 minis, but I'm not a big fan of translucent figures. I wanted to paint over them, but keep the ghost vibe. These are much greener in person. I like them, but I think the blue ghosts in the other thread turned out a tad better. These ended up a hair too bright for what I was going for, but it's all in the name of science! I might glaze them down a bit later.
