Hey you guys thanks so much for the encouragement. Glad you all like it, except Damo who seems to be driven to drinking, LOL,...me too bro me too....

SLAVE it’s basically a Wolf grey and a black, then a light blue grey added to that for highlights, plus white. Then a crap ton of glazes, of red, purple, blue and turqouise.

Well here’s a bit of an odd update. Ive decided to enter a kill team arena slow grow and I’ve got to get my army concept down. Most likely van saars counting as scions, but it’s mostly an excuse to field my favorite models in the GW line, the van saars. So i got to paint a solid 20 of them so it can be too crazy but here’s a my concept WIP table top quality van saar. Pretty happy with it but a lot of clean up needed especially on the gun, I’m going to reverse the chipping of the orange because i think its too much. Loses the structure of the orange pattern. A few other things, skin is mostly untouched,,,hands.....ALSO

Here’s some terrain i painted for my FLGS






And a the test van saar





I guess its a pretty cyber punky update
WELLLLL....

That’s all my friends!
Happy painting! Ill have an update on the van saar in the next few days

@ whale : no the first mini was just for fun to paint, but these will now be part of the kill team and this is just the first concert model. Though quite frankly I’m pretty pleased with the overall scheme so I’m going to move forward with it now that I’ve got it nailed down.

@ gits: Thanks man! No joke, it was super fun to paint! Incredibly relaxing and basically just a playground of throwing oil paint around. Plus I’ve wanted to do some cyber punk terrain for quite a long time, I have plans to do quite a lot more than just that one building.

Also hey! I finished the dude! Here he is! This was a pretty brisk paint for me, so not as smooth and a little dirty her and there, no prob I have to do approx 15 of em...they will look good en masse...






Right on, ill update with some wip of the next guy
Stay tuned

Hey Hey!!! Whats up you guys Sooooo....

Ive entered another comp at my FLGS. This one is a kill team arena comp and as for the picture in the last post, that was my test model but the concept has grown and i want to share with you my current project, which is alot more RP comprehensive than my usual just paint for painting sake.

Meet, The "Green Bug Gang." Imagine the blending of a DC/Batman Returns-esque ridiculous themed gang. plus cyber punk, set in the higher tech hoods of Necromunda. "Hey Bub, We're the Green Bug gang and we're gonna STOMP YOU.....for the emperor?!!"

Rules wise, Its a counts as Gene Stealer Cult list that looks like this:

1 Leader with Power Pick, Bolt Pistol / VAN SAAR CONVERSION + WINGS
+ DRAGONFLY

6 Gunners / VAN SAAR WITH LAS RIFLE
+TICK
+ROACH
+PEST
+SKEETER
+ANT
+RICARDO

2 Webbers / VAN SAAR W/ "MELTA"
+SPIDER
+WIDOW

2 Aberrants / AMBOTS
+SIR-E
+ALEX-A

1 Genestealer / INFINTY-ESQUE SPIDERBOT CONVERSION
+BOB

Ive had a few snags wth the process already so kinks are being ironed out but ive got the test model which ill post again just for recap, but you now must imagine the gun as the grey as the gun on the WIP models below. Because of modeling snafoos i dont want to build after painting and to do the white gun the way i did it, i would have to do that. The work around is choosing a more forgiving color to work with so ive chosen a cool, techy, greyish blue that counters the "mesh" color as well as the lime grreen while still playing nice with orange stripes As you can see, the helmet antennae too, will be a feature on a number of models. That was done quite easily by snipping the tips off the braid that comes with the kit and gluing on the head. finicky but not as bad as metal infinity models ok?? Other than that, the models are painted to a high tabletop level, but i still ultimately, spirtually i am just pushing through and not everything is as exact and precise as i would paint if it was only one model. The process here is essentially the same as my space sharks. Airgun the model in its base, shade and mild zenithal hightlights, then do everything else by hand. Green line armor plates, edge highlight battle damage, mesh etc etc. Getting the armor color down in one go is a bit time consuming with the gun because i have to keep cleaning and waiting for a coat to dry etc, but its still faster and cuts out the most tedious part of army painting. I dont think i could paint that many models the same color any other way frankly. Not for me. Lastly, i plan on doing a cyber-y sewery backdrop for them to be presented and maybe even a custom PDF/Comic book of the counts as rules with their own fiction and art. Maybe ill get to that. I Want to.... Any ways heres a smattering of pics so can see where im at here. And remember, bub, Dont mess with the Green Bug Gang, or youll get STOMPED








ANYWAYS, thats more game than i usually post here! Hope you all dig the idea,
CHeers

Thanks you guys!! So, mannnn, I kinda bowed out of the comp on account of actually hating working with the van saar models that have guns crossing the chest. Pieces kept breaking off and I swear I scrapped 3 models due to modeling issues. Too flimsy. Great scheme, great idea, fun to paint, but for now I’ve back burned the idea and will finish itt st my own pace

Instead I’m back to paint practice. This may or may not interest you, but primarily focusing on a technique called color sketching,, placing light and dark then fixing as you go. First pic illustrates the idea, the rest are where I’m at currently. Notice I. Painted the highlight wrong on the foot. In pic one and was redone in the following pics. The back you can see some areas that haven’t been finished or totally smooothed out yet, or fully highlighted or edge lighted. I’m especially unsure of his butt armor and may redo. ... mannnnalll this is on my IG but I don’t think m/any of you follow me there. (i saw someone with the same I’d. As dr H and thought it was him. It wasn’t... lol) anyway a heres pics!









Cheers you guys happy painting ,3

What? You mean the GitS laughing man logo? Yeah, I've seen quite a few people using that about the place. That's why I've moved away from using it on my social media profiles. I've thought about transitioning over here on DDakka, but then you all won't recognise me.
I'm not on IG, just FB (with my "The Mini Details of Dr H" name badge) and Twitter (with my Princess Mononoke wolf) and YT (does still have the laughing man logo).

Good work, BB.
While not quite to my taste, you've done a top job on the technique.

A nice anodized aluminum effect. Very cool. Good strong contrast. The one tip that I recall is for the extreme white highlights. The sharper the line, the smoother the surface looks. You are fairly close on the butt plates.

I very much want to see how this one turns out.

Those Van Saars. Like Infinity figs who stuck around for second helpings at the dinner table... for several years. Some chubby boys, those guys I like the painting.

i! its an airbrushed coat of GW Moot Green. Then from underneath upwardsi airbrush a coat of Warpstone Green. Then i airbrush directly from above in halo, zenithal, a highlight of MootGreen + Dorn Yellow. Thats the base coat and everything elese is done by hand. . Then i line all armor plates etc with Sotek Green / Black / Water. THen edge hightlight with the Moot/Dorn Mix but add more and more white as i go. The airbrush i use is a 20$ Piece of crap from a hardware store, basically a glorified air gun.
