Frankly ridiculous. I cannot even comprehend the concentration, discipline, time and skills needed to paint a miniature to a level a tenth as good as that. The freehand on the pauldron just takes the cake as well. I hope it inspires a lot of people.

Yep. Fan-frickin'-tastic. It inspires me to try and paint some of my Pan-Oceania minis like that.

hey guys thanks!! I hope everyone is doing well in hobby land and otherwise!<3

well ive finished the space marine and here he is...









also started this project and almost done with him. I wanted to do something drastically different in style and content to the space marine and i was inspired by very de saturated color pallete of giger. so i went with that head first! Hes a bit of a palette cleanser and a slightly brisker paint than the spacemarine as im not as worried about cleanliness as it is nurgle afterall, and ill add a little more to the base when i finish adding the last bits to the model...








Thanks for looking you guys, happy painting!!<3

Not where I should be

That space marine is just ridiculously good. Not fair dude, too much. The chrome on the backpack is beyond beautiful.

Nurgle thingy is awesome too.

Smurf looks like hes about to square up with a Carnifex or something. NMM paint style is always a little mind bending, and yours is very nice. I expect no less at this point.

The free bank on the scrollwork is astonishing .

Marine looks great as well, you can hardly tell he’s pooping in his armor right then . The extreme NMM is amazing.

Love the desaturated Scrivenger, pretty much the look I'm going for with my Khorne daemons. Is that really just white base + washes?

Thanks everyone!

Boss: Its VMC Light Blue Green basically washed over a grisaille undercoat. Or zenithal priming in the mini painting circles...white sprayed downwards from above over black. Creates a shadowed preshade. Then i wash over that with really thinned VMC light green blue....then i start glazing that with yellows, pinks, purples and blues...black glazes for enhancing shadowed or diseased areas... Then i mixed in VMC Ivory to the VMC Light green blue and pointed or did lines for texture to highlight certain areas...adding a touch of the home glaze color to it if im over a pink area etc etc....

all that to say,,,IT IS just glazing....and it isnt lol....

*whistles* Thanks for the rundown! I'll see how much of that I can dumb down and do myself. And you know, he is a bit more sea foam green than white, looking again.

Awesome Bebop! that level of work on the marine is extraordinary and just showcases your skills perfectly! I really like that Nurgle though, it's the kinda left of centre thinking I really enjoy, and it looks pallid and soft which is just nasty.

Thanks a lot you guys glad you like the last project. It was so much fun to paint! Onwards and hopefully upwards but ya never know....

My next project (I did finish the spoil pox and posted pics to the Showcse section if you want to see it https://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/776017.page), is a salvage job for a friend in trade for a lot of FW and space marine stuff, shadow spear/...it’s a tau riptide that was realllllly badly done, I painted directly over it. This is mid wip with a lot left to do....but super fun to paint a tau model this big....



Hope ya dig it....cheers all<3
Happy painting,
Bebop

Masterful. The weathering is beautifully done, I'm sure your friend will be more than thrilled.

That's a lovely scheme. Weathering is just right on it too. I was confused how it was WIP til I saw the legs.

Great work on that riptide. I love how it looks both tau'y new off the showroom floor and weathered on the battlefield at the same time.

Hey guys thanks ALL for the interest!

I finished the Tau Riptide!!! yahooo. super fun. but now i want to do one that isnt a salvage job, go super hard and paint it before its built!! Please excuse the somewhat hasty photoshop skills....











My next real project is another Mantis Marine. the 2019 version. I dont know if you all remember the last one i did, this will be a different style. Like the ultramarine:



ALso, i posted this to the showcase but heres a bit about the contrast paints. got a chance to mess with them:



also had a chance to test out the contrast paints:
.im sure everyone has had their eye on whats going on with contrast paints, either with disgust or love. Ive seen alot of angles on them, and ive seen some absolutely amazeballs works done using them to some degree. Follow @daemonrich if you want your mind blown at what these paints can do in the right hands. Well, im not super into army painting and my test with them was to see how fast i could a single mini, and how bad it would look if i just went hard, sLoppy, no corrections, edge highlights all fat and etc etc, the whole 9, my ONLY goal, was speed.

The verdict: You decide? But this model took me 3 hours from start to finish: including priming. In fact, the paint drying (takes a little longer i think...like a heavy wash) is something that actually slows you down. Each color, except the brown i found to be a little weird to work with and its a bit of a mix of colors, is one coat heavy applied. i mean globbed the heck on. barely moved any pooling (again speed). Black, one coat. Yellow, one coat. Grey. one coat. Green. One coat. Then i just started doing some fast hightlights on top of it. And painted any details like eyes and shoulder pad etc etc normally. The time saved was pretty great and is it worth the quality lost? Personally, i think so. I dont enjoy the game as much when im precious with my models and i actually did one more right aftwards that day and i cant remember the last time i could do two models in one day and be cool with it. Its certainly not for everyone and it by no means replaces hard core brush techniques, but its damn fast and looks cool. I do have to say,,,,if you use an airbrush...im not sure how much time is saved tbh, but its a much different look obvi and in this case...i like it....

One thing to observe for those interested, on the bottom of the shark shoulder pad, i wanted to see if i would use a darker color to shade the model, so i tried a coat on top of the yellow, of the orange....as you can see its extremely bright and did not look good so i didnt proceed to do that. It seems that one coat of the stuff works well enough and provides enough contrast to work with without needing anything else. Maybe thinning it dramatically and using glazes with it...i havent experimented that far, but im of course interested....

AnYWAYS enough blab heres the poor SOB who will die to someones meta net list:

Wow, that's stupidly impressive for only a few hours' work, one of the best endorsements for Contrast I've yet to see. Were the black stripes also done with Contrast? If they were, did you have any trouble keeping the lines neat or maintaining opacity over a much lighter base colour?

Thanks Paradigm....no the camo black was painted on with a brush, but its really random, i just kinda smash the brush when i want the camo line thicker, then i go in another direction with it. the only worry is to not do too much of it. Either way, that step is alot faster than maybe it appears. The contrast paints are like washes, you couldnt do that with them without having to do many many layers i would think.....

Thanks for clarifying, I suspected they were regular paints for exactly that reason, but I just thought I'd double check as I've not yet seen Contrast first hand.

Top job on the riptide. Great restoration.

Good work with the new paints. I've certainly seen a few good results with them. Time will tell if the average gamer likes them and produces as good a result.

Gorgeous stuff in this thread and it's great to see another great looking paint job using contrast. I need to crack on and get a few experiments done with my own minis.
