Re: Infinity Painting/Project Log (Long Overdue Update)

A few months back I picked up the special edition Achilles box that had two models in it. I figured this was a great chance to really push myself in terms of what I could do with an airbrush and a regular brush. I also loved the models and wanted to do them justice. White is a color that's tough to ...

Re: Infinity Painting/Project Log (Long Overdue Update)

Addendum: My plan was to proxy the Dactyl doctor profile at LVO since CB hadn't released it... but CB had other ideas in mind and released it, so now I have to paint it. http://i1302.photobucket.com/albums/ag122/ShadowStrike82/Aleph/16%20-%202_zpshoc5m9ls.jpg http://i1302.photobucket.com/albums/ag12...

Re: Shadow Strike's painting log - Ghostkeels WIP

I actually finished these up a couple of weeks ago, but I haven't had a chance to take some really nice pictures, so instead of letting thing languish I'll post what I've got. Pics or it didn't happe right? ;) http://i1302.photobucket.com/albums/ag122/ShadowStrike82/15%20-%201_zpsd0o5gwqt.jpg http:/...

Re: Shadow Strike's painting log - Ghostkeels WIP

Adding some points of color. I want to keep it stealthy but it can't all be grey!

Re: Persifal's cadre, Fal'Shia sept - XV95 WIP

Very nice sir! I've come to enjoy the smooth gradients that a airbrush supplies paired with sharp highlights. Infinity players call this the Gerhaldez method after the Infinity studio painter Angel Gerhaldez. I've been doing something similar with my ghostkeels. I tried to do some stenciling (since ...

Re: Airbrush / Spray Gun

Dorian, In general there are two camps: 1. Buy a cheap brush and find out if you like airbrushing, practice, break, abuse, and learn with. Then get a more expensive brush. 2. But the expensive brush up front and save yourself the hassle of dealing with a lower quality item. The Badger Patriot line i...

Re: Shadow Strike's painting log - Completed Pathfinders

Oh good, it's only been 2.5 years since I last updated this thread. :sad: Love it or hate it, the latest release has got me painting my boys in blue again. I've fallen in love with the Ghostkeel. It's a great model, has great rules, and it let's me run more of my also beloved stealthsuits. So after ...

Re: Infinity Painting/Project Log (Big overdue update)

Well, a year seems like a long enough time to wait to update :P Let me apologize for not keeping this active despite continuing to paint. Me and forum posting is a bit of a roller coaster- I'll be great for a few months then fall off the wagon. Let's hope it sticks this time! But despite lack of pos...

Re: Requesting feedback on paint scheme.

Bravo on your first attempt! El'mo is correct in everything he said. But let me add a few points. 1. Washes are your friend, Secret Weapon has an extensive line, soft body black is a good general purpose one that won't change your colors while shading them. 2. Panel Lines - these lines can be a litt...

Re: Infinity Painting/Project Log (Asphalt Amazon)

Those bases are PERFECT! Thanks for advice guys! I'm kicking myself that I didn't check Antenocitis sooner. @Null, I agree, blacked out motorcycles look amazing - in fact that's how mine is! (But boy are they hard to keep clean!) But I was thinking it might not translate into miniature form well plu...

Re: Infinity Painting/Project Log (Eudoros Finished)

It's been a little while, but I had a whole pack of Space Wolves that I had to paint up for Feast of Blades. You forget how un-fun batch painting is until you have to paint 20 wolf tails in a row. (Ugh) But now that they are out of the way I'm all set for my next Project: Bootleg Penthesilea. http:/...

Re: Infinity Painting/Project Log (Eudoros WIP)

Ok so this is Eudoros at... 95% there is some touch up on his arm, face, and some little bits of flock for the base, but functionally this guy is done and ready for the table top! I'm quite happy with the greens and how they turned out. It's a color layering I played with on a KrazyKoala a while bac...

Re: Infinity Painting/Project Log (Eudoros WIP)

I tried a mixture of brown/black wash on the hair... it helped a little, there just wasn't much in the way of detail to hold the wash. Like Diomedes, Eudoros's hair just doesn't have a lot of detail to it. I imagine this is probably true for a lot of their models. Their female sculpts have their hai...

Re: Infinity Painting/Project Log (Diomedes Complete)

Its bad lighting but he had been base coated, and washed. I'll start touching up his armor ams make it a little more gold. http://i1302.photobucket.com/albums/ag122/ShadowStrike82/Aleph/2014-07-26%2009.29.19_zpshbcur4iv.jpg http://i1302.photobucket.com/albums/ag122/ShadowStrike82/Aleph/2014-07-26%20...

Hey great to know another member will be at 'Feast! I'll be playing in the doubles but let's see if we can arrange bumping into each other! As it stands right now the big 3 armies you are going to be seeing at Feast will be Eldar, Dark Eldar, and Deamons. Eldar are faster than us. Dark Eldar poison ...

Re: Infinity Painting/Project Log (Diomedes)

Vacations and some health issues kept me from painting these past few week. However! I did finish Diomedes! I'm not totally in love with his face and hair, but I'm ready to move on and have hopes on finishing my army before Feast in October! So without further ado... http://i1302.photobucket.com/alb...

Re: Infinity Painting/Project Log (Diomedes)

Wow has it been a week already? Been painting Diomedes and he's getting close to done. Here are a couple of WIPS as proof: So the armor is done the hands are done, and I'm finishing up the glow effects on his suit. The only thing that is giving me fits is the stupid upper wing. I keep trying to high...

Re: Infinity Painting/Project Log (Finished Myrmidons)

Little elves. I leave the mini out with a bit of paint and few cookies and viola! Actually I use P3 black thinned way down. It takes about 6 or 7 layers to get it even. I do a bit of highlighting with a mixture of grey and black. There is so much detail in these minis that I'm afraid to put it on an...
