Re: Building/painting models faster

Good tips. What about building? It takes me days to fully build kits, and even more time to get all those bits loose. Actually, the whole prep stage of cutting from the sprue, drilling, cleaning up, gluing etc is one area where I wouldn't recommend trying to save time on as anything you skip here w...

Re: Building/painting models faster

I've been thinking of getting myself a quickshade. Do you think it's worth it? For Tau, absolutely not. For Kroot, yes. Definitely worth it if you're going for horde armies or for really dirtied up models, it takes some investment (you can't just dip it and leave it, you either have to give the mod...

Re: Building/painting models faster

Hey man, don't worry about it, it took me 40 days to paint a Devilfish. Just don't worry about it, it takes what it takes, there's people with newborn kids that have extremely minimal time out there but they keep at it whenever they can. Here's some tips that have worked for me : 1. You mentioned ab...

Re: Vior'la sept - Agrax vs Nuln Oil

According to the Vior'la sept markings, which are already in the box. I know they are ment to be used on white armour, but has anyone experience how they work on other colors? Do they stay red even on darker backgrounds or do you get some purple? Would like to use them on grey-blue cause I am reall...

Re: Vior'la sept - Agrax vs Nuln Oil

If you're interested in doing panel washes, I'd say neither. Vallejo's 76.513 Brown is between the two in terms of hue (WHEN DRY, when it's wet it looks a lot like light brown) , is way more pigmented and behaves a lot better in pin washes. In fact, I would go as far calling it a miracle product as ...

Re: New to the hobby, looking for Vior'la paint scheme instructions.

One thing from my own experience, don't use GW white, the color is pretty bad quality wise, many suggest using vallejo white instead At first I though this was only me getting bad batch of color, but others confirmed this to me, and I never saw "pro painter" on youtube use GW white, even ...

Re: New to the hobby, looking for Vior'la paint scheme instructions.

It's important to note that a lot of tutorials for Vior'la armour,. including Duncan's video from Warhammer TV DOES NOT PRODUCE A WHITE ARMOUR The reason for that is, as explained above, that white can't be highlighted, as there's no lighter color than white. So what they do is use a very light blu...

Re: [review] green stuff world chameleon paint: set one

I also gave my stealth suits a quick coat over their existing paint job, and now they shimmer and ripple as a really good example of a stealth field. Mine are on the way but now you're killing me. I was planning to use them on my Vespids' carapace but now I'm dying to see what you've done with the ...

Re: Tau in the Jungle (Compilation of the ideas so far...)

I see what you mean. Now trying to take all the stuff so far, I think that the best cours of action will be to perhaps to find a common theme (like same colours of the soft armour and weapons), and then use a toned colours that match with the soft armour for the stealthy units with bright, strong c...

Re: Tau in the Jungle (Compilation of the ideas so far...)

Come to think of it, I never thought of that this way. I was thinking of something "jungly" with strong colours, but now to think of it, strong colours would stand out, and that would be a little bad for the guys who were to hide in the bushes, but given that sometimes the warfare is unpr...

Re: Tau in the Jungle (Compilation of the ideas so far...)

The armour parts are basecoated with Caliban Green, highlighted by Warpstone Glow and further highlighted (corners only, see corner of the weapon) with Moot Green. The cloth is basecoated with Deathworld Forest, washed with Athonian Camoshade (really awesome wash but go light with it) and heavily la...

This one's easily the best jungle scheme I've seen and if I'm not horribly mistaken this is from GW's How To Paint Citadel Miniatures - Tau Empire ebook. I have that around somewhere if you're interested in the recipe suggested.

Re: Tips on painting Black Coldstar Commander

All three points are factual points, not matters of opinion. The part that is opinion is "you shouldn't be painting black at all" and here, you can definitely disagree. I more often than not do not follow my own advice as it's quite hard and time consuming to get the black-but-not-really-b...

Re: Tips on painting Black Coldstar Commander

The problem with black is, basically, that you shouldn't be painting black at all. There's three reasons for that : a) Look around you and try to find an object that, in good lighting conditions, is really really black. I bet you'll have trouble finding one. b) A black real life sized car might look...
