Finally, 2 layers of paint washes done on the display base. Next up with be a patchy brown and or black ink wash. Then a drybrushing, then a purple/devlan wash. Then on to the yellow brick rode and fence


If that brick road doesn't end up being yellow, Major, I imagine I'm not the only one who'll feel somewhat disappointed

That ork on the bottom shelf looks mighty lonely. Also you should invest in a new camera...get a Canon Rebel T3i, which will let you take high quality photons and you'll be able to shoot 1080p video too which will be much higher quality than the average vid camera. Come on Tom, with the quality of the stuff you're doing these days, you deserve it

I like the way your first post sounds like you'll be 100% dedicated to your massive work load of BAs, then a little further on its like "oh yeah, and i'll throw in a bit of orky/chaos madness as well!"

Well I for one will be checking back EVERY day to check progress (steal ideas)!

How did you sneak this one past me! Two days late is not good enough for me!

As usual tommy boy, im glued to this thread, and it already looks like you're pulling out all the stops. I am so copying sword and shield contemptor. Id be tempted to increase its invul by one for a few points with that shield though

I am so hyped for this.

Now get painting!!

Thanks boys, I love the technique and learned it from Massive Voodoo and a few Miniature Mentor tutorials... seems like it is the masters choice, and after trying it on that ork face, I have to say I probably won't be going back.

@eggroll - I have a Canon D3, I was just lazy for these shots and took them by hand with my 4S, don't worry, the final shots will be properly done

Off to the basement to drybrush and ink that display base...

Let no man glory in the greatness of his mind,
but rather keep watch o'er his wits.
Cautious and silent let him enter a dwelling;
to the heedful comes seldom harm,
for none can find a more faithful friend
than the wealth of mother wit.

So we have the Tin Man from the gang - what we need now is a Cowardly Lion (a Dark Angel?), a Strawman (not sure how Tom will paint an internet argument), Dorothy (SoB or female Inquisitor) and Toto (Fenrisian Wolf).

Progress, no yellow brick road, but I am desperately tempted to put witches feet sticking out from the Contemptors foot... maybe a little dog too...







Water effects at the bottom aren't dry yet, that's why the bottom looks a bit milky. This is pretty near done, will just add a weathering powder pass, and maybe another round of inking as I find the earth needs to look wetter near the bottom and in the recesses...

Let me know what you think, this is the first time I have tried a complicated base so hopefully I didn't completely muck it up lol. Trying to keep the colors to the autumn and russets, with a dash of bright greens and reds to play off what will be a predominantly gold contemptor.

The ork may or may not have had the rest of his skin done too while I waited for the base to dry a few times.

It does look pretty damn awesome. One minor point is the blue on the fence pillars - it is hard to decide if it is blue paint that has flecked off, or corrosion of whatever metal made up the pillar... I don't know whether it would be easy to clarify this one way or the other with a little bit more work on them? It sticks out to me because as far as I can see there is no blue on any of the rest of the fence...

But otherwise - awesome. Love the leaves piled up in the "gutter" at the side nearest the fence.

I don't think you need to worry about having messed it up! I do have to agree with Silver though. I can't decide if the blue pillar is supposed to be corrosion or paint? There's something... off about them.

I love the leaves and flowers too. It's a nice touch

Hmmm IRL the posts are dominantly metallic, but the camera seems to have really emphasized the blue.. will work on re-metalling and weathering with other colors to solve it. The fence part is black rod-iron, but the posts are meant to be metal and copper.

Good advice thanks guys!

Very nice basework going on there Tom! One comment I do have is that it seems a bit too vibrant for the subject which I'm assuming will be the contemptor. I think it might be a bit too colourful and distracting when you have everything completed. Maybe have a bit more of a muted palette for basework though it's hard to tell until the the final model has been mounted. Anyhow, keep up the hobby progress.

Contemptor pretty vibrant

You may be right, it may end up that the base doesn't go super well with the contemptor, but if they don't, i'll make a more deserty wreckage base for him like the others and re-use the display on something else... I am curious to see how it turns out as well!

I have a feeling though, that one I take proper pics, fears may be assuaged...

In the meantime lol, more crappy pics -

Base is pretty much done now, may go over later and do a shadow pass with the airbrush, but that will be at the very end. Toned down the verdigris and put more orange rust and metallics, darkened the bricks a touch, put some browns into the greenest vegetation, and washed all the leaves to cut their saturation too. Fence got it's orange rust weathering as well, and several 'wet spots' were put in with ink and varnish to add variety and depth to the dirt/mud.







And with the Contemptor, who has received it's Zenithal Airbrushing for Gold -



It doesn't show up well at all in these pics, there are three metals, tin, to gold to gold/silver, followed by a chestnut ink airbrush pass and then a yellow ink airbrush pass... but due to the fact the actual lighting is the same as the 'fake lighting', it pretty much just looks like it is brush painted gold lol... IRL, a lot more nuance. Again, once I set up the diffusers and re-orient the lights, the paintwork should be way more apparent for what it is.



and some friends -





And, ye ol Ork Warboss, skin pretty much done -





That's it for now! The brushwork begins...

Ah that is a beautiful base Tom, I weep for its majesty...

The gold looks smooth too, although as you say, pretty damn hard to see the zenithal!

Thanks for the priming technique too, just about to start my paint comp entry and def using it. That skin looks divine on the boss.

MT11,

When you said glazing, are you talking about using Oil paints with a medium? The only reason why I'm asking is because I'm in a painting class, and our professor was talking about that with his higher level students who were using oils.

Glazing is a general term in painting referring to rendering a paint to a semi-transparent state and then using it to modify another color. Oil glazing and Acrylic glazing are similar in function but not in application due to their different properties. Think of a glaze as a very, very controlled version of a wash, except the goal is not to flood or pool in recesses, but to apply to surface areas in order to modify the colors... It is pretty advanced, but only in terms of understanding how it works, applying it requires the same skills as painting -

I tend to use oils for pin-washes, and large area glazing, but for small surfaces, or ones where I am after a more powdery matte look, I glaze with acrylics and/or GW washes.

Check out the link to my about paints tutorial in my sig for more in depth examples!
