Interlude, a Rivet Zone "Suppressor", 3D printed/cast parts on top of a Rhino Chassis. A very nice kit. Disclaimer: Sam, the owner is a friend. I still recommend this kit!

The Black Squig Skwadron is impressive. Lots of flying Dakka! The yellow is looking good and sounds like a pretty simple recipe of Contrast base coat and dry brush. That big Skwadron all painted up yellow will look great.

Brian,

My painting up of one of Sam's Suppressor kits didn't have anything to do with your interlude did it?

Cheers,

A bit. I got mine from Sam on Friday, and wanted to jump right into the kit!

I also bought him dinner, and caught up.

Now, onwards.

Painting the Arbites Repressor, parts by Sam Butler from Rivet Zone. Used Krylon "Ink Blue" Satin spray. Still shiny. I'm working on getting a mass-produceable blue for reasons which will be clear, soon enough.

Spoiler:





I also brought out the old 6x6 and dedicated it to keeping the rabble in check.

On the left, pure Krylon Satin Ink Blue. Middle is a single layer of Contrast Ultramarines Blue. Right is a Rhino primed with GW's Seer Grey undercoat. It took 2-3 layers of contrast paint to get to this coverage. Unsustainable.




Next up, more gothic train parts from Pinterrain on Etsy!

Defense turret, armoured troop car, and a "drop container - cage" on standard GW trolleys. Then, the defense car without the turret (landing pad?), gondola, and flatcar. And some knee. Scandalous.
Spoiler:






And now, some silly.

My new 'Pin'trest board:



An Auspex for cosplay:



My Exterminatus Warrant, so I can blow up this planet.



And, finally, I unearthed my treasure from visiting Warhammer World.



How's YOUR weekend going?

Okay, assistance time!

Which blue looks better as a base for Ultramarines? Note: No drybrushing,etc has been done, just Contrast Ultramarines Blue over various baseocats.

From left to right: Grey Seer undercoat, Krylon Satin Wildflower Blue (light), Krylon Satin Ink Blue (dark).



What do you think, opinions please!

Thanks!

The light blue (middle) or dark blue (right)? My preference is the darker Krylon base, because it's EASIEST. Lazy painter FTW.

I favor the middle one myself. But mostly I love amazing train parts! Though that wedge shaped riot plow is a close second...

The drugs are finally working. I'm actually enjoying painting and modeling again!

The votes are in from here, myself, and other friends, the middle one has won!

Which is good, because it's the easiest paint job.

Insomnia strikes! Thank GOD for Australian miniature painter Twitch streamers. Good to have company while painting at oh-dark-thirty.



Decals and some final detailing, and these will be DONE.

PS: My brush control is gak, out of practice. Also, PROTIP: Don't get old.

Another (real) tip: Pick up a pair of +3.00x magnification "reading glasses", you can find them at DIY stores/Pharmacy stores for under $10. Mine were $6. These are COMFORTABLE magnifiers for close up detail work, without all the fiddly giant headbands or what-have you.

Really, really useful. Even if you're not old.

Insomnia painting hours are some of the best. Means the spouse and kids aren’t bothering you about stuff.

I got new glasses recently (huge freaking ordeal that took 2.5months longer than it should ). Though they make my vision better, they have messed up my painting style....possibly for the better. My old painting sweet spot was about a foot from my face. These new glasses have a sweet spot about arms length away so I have to relearn all my muscle movements and detail accuracy for the new distance.

No lie about getting old It sucks.

If you have a method WRITE IT DOWN! Can’t tell you how many times I get to a point in an army where I’ve taken a break and come back a month later and can not redo the same effect.

Transfers look great , do you use micro sol and micro set? Or do you have other tools for that?

I have the formula written down, and I use Solvaset, which is basically Microsol and Set combined. I also printed my own top hatch decals. Yes, I can print in white.

Greetings, Komrades! While Glorious October Revolution happening, we Sovietski have taken over stream to share incredible technology!

First, a set of highly accurate Soviet Heavy Mortars! Assured to send death and fear into opponents.



Then, glorious Red Banner Tractor Factory number 114 has produced excellent new Kataphron Servitor Tractor. Most useful in moving munitions around to fire from new Heavy Mortars.



We apologize for interruption, and invite you to continue to watch Orktober. We hear Kill Team is next.
