Something is lurking!

Well Hi there! I have been on vacation. So my painting has been on hold for a few weeks. But something is lurking and it is coming from the Sump!

So expect some few days to see my new painted miniature... or not because I'm still on vacation and I might not be near my painting station. So literally I'm taking some holiday from painting as well.

But I have new paint theme for my Necromunda Van Saar gang and I hope I got some time to paint one test model for that.

I also have to paint one Necromunda and three Mordheim miniatures to cover my promise to paint five of each original models in this year!

Look Sir! Droids!

In Star Wars movie episode IV a Storm trooper finds some metal parts on desert and say "Look Sir! Droids! Well I have painted these two identifiable droids. R2-D2 and C-3PO as they were in that episode. I have painted a silver leg and some dirt from straining bolt.

Well I like to have more these droids and paint some more of these with variable color. But I still have lots of other Star wars to paint.

Until waiting some more painted minis you can watch these.

Painting Necromunda Juve Part 5

The part 5 is here. This part I usually do the base.

It depends about the model what kind of base I do. For the Necromunda because it nature of Hive city. Junk, dirty and urban environment. Yeah there is some cleaner and nicer places in Hive but the gangers mostly life in factory or some kind of lawless area.

Here is m base for Necromunda:

1. I clue some beams, junk, net or platforms to the base. And some texture paint.
2. Then I use black paint to do priming
3. Do the base colors and shading
4. Highlight the base colors and do some dry brushing
5. details.. like painting rust or warning lines.

Here is the almost finished base.  I will paint the edge with grey.

Cluing some items to the base
Cut it nice when dried. I used super clue
Put some primer before painting

Painting Necromunda Juve Part 4

Layers, layers layers... this is the hardest and the most fun part to see the miniature come to life.

After the basic paint it is time to give some highlights. First I start applying  same base colors before shading. Then I star mixing some more lighter tone paints and star filling up very thin layers. I use only water based colors because it is easy to thin them to ad these thin layers.

when I am happy with the layers I add some details and fix some errors with darker tone or with wash. I do not use much of a dry brushing for details.

Make sure you have some very small brush for the details. I have noticed that it is very much easier to paint details like eyes with small brushes.

Here is the example. Escher juve got about 3-5 layers of skin tone. And then I added details like eyes and make up.

I had to do some fixing because I was very tired because lack of sleep.  Painting  as tired I made too much errors and my hand and eye coordination was not very good. Also I could not focus very well. So I decided to keep painting some other day. Remember to keep breaks and paint when you are happy and in the right mood to do some nice paint ups.

But here is the picture!

Some layering and details! 

Here is some small fixes on skin and also shirt is layered with same way.
