--------


Finally finished my first MEdge stuff! It seems most people start painting their Karist models, and so have I, for no other reason than that I find it harder to decide on a color scheme for my Contractors...

I decided I'd paint up a piece of terrain for each unit I finish, so I won't be stuck with a finished army and no suitable terrain. I hope I can keep it up...








The rock with the pink marking is a magnetic 'squad leader' indicator...

There's a couple more in my gallery. I think the top view is the most accurate color wise. Need to improve my photo workflow...

Yup! They're called Doublesix Dice. It's a kickstarter product, but a permanent store is online, though not yet quite finished I think. I think they're really neat

Thanks! It's inspired by the orange and blue Scarecrow bot from the workshop diorama, so thanks to whoever did that

Looking awesome!

Can I ask what colours you used for the Karists? Or even better - how you painted them to look so good?

Thanks!

The Tempest recipe is as follows. All paints are from the Warcolours range that a forum member here produces, except for the washes and the Stirland Mud which are Citadel. First time I used Warcolours. They're generally very nice, just don't use them if you need a paint that covers very well, as most just don't (which can be an advantage too).

Undercoat: I sprayed these black and then 'blue grey 5' up to... maybe 3. That was when I thought I could do the armour with the airbrush. I now know I can't . In the future I'll just undercoat blue grey 5. The whole model was then washed with Nuln Oil.

Armor: blue grey 4 all over except in recesses, blue grey 3 highlight, blue grey 2 highlight, blue grey 1 edge higlight. The highlights are done with 'two brush blending', which is basically sticking a damp brush between your teeth and using that to fade the edges you paint with the other brush (not while still between your teeth!). First time I tried this technique. It's not very difficult once you get a little experience with it. The damp brush between the teeth is also great for quickly erasing small errors.

Suit: just the nuln oil over the undercoat that's already there, if I wrote this down correctly. I'll find out soon enough once I do the Troopers, they have lots more suit to paint.

Cybel energy: layer pink 5, pink 3, pink 1, then pink 5 + lahmian medium wash, re-highlight with I think pink 1, might have been 2, and a few final dots with I think pink 1 + white.

Metal bits: layer metallic black, metallic pewter, metallic silver, metallic white, (nuln oil wash on gun barrel)

Eye dash: layer ochre 4, ochre 2

Base: stirland mud, warm grey 4 drybrush, cool grey 1 drybrush, heki wildgrass (the tall grass), static grass (a pot with a mix of various Woodland Scenics flavours, mixed too long ago to remember which), black trim

Leader rock: warm grey 5, warm grey 4 drybrush, cool grey 1 drybrush, agrax earthshade, cool grey 1 drybrush, pink 4 marking, pink 2 marking


It's a longer process then I'd originally planned, but not too bad. I hope this was somewhat understandable, if not I'll try again!

That was fantastic.

It kind of read like a txt file I keep on my computer with all the paint schemes I've used. Something I ensure I have because I get halfway through projects, move onto something different then a few months later have forgotten what colours I used when I return to the original project.

I was going to try and learn to use my airbrush on the tempest elites (for something other than basecoating). Maybe I'll need to buy a few more from SAS to practice on.
:-)

Thanks again.

No problem, it actually ís a copy from a .txt file I keep . Forgot one thing though: pink drybrush around the pink bits to give a tiny bit of glow.
I'd be really interested in seeing what you can manage with the airbrush. I"ve not had the patience to learn to use it for detailed stuff. The fact I ran out of cleaner didn't help

Nice work! I really like both your paint schemes but the fact that you are committing to producing a terrain piece with every squad is great!

Thanks! Lots of terrain pieces left to go...

Update time!

I finished 6 Karist Troopers and a building that I say is a derelict cybel energy power plant control station. A smallish power plant, for a factory.

















I really need to start figuring out some forces, as up until now I've just painted models with random equipment...

Really nice stuff, I love the way you've put the corner caps on a lip and then laid the edge pieces under the corner caps to make it all nice and flush. Thanks for sharing

Hehe, yeah, I wish that were a piece of cleverly thought out engineering on my side. Instead it went "d'oh, of course these won't fit over that corner where I just put that other bit of plastic. Damn. Where's my cardboard strips???" In fact, pretty much all of my building and painting follows this formula

Couple more things finished, two Epirian Scarecrow bots and a bunch of simple crater terrain.

Time for a long overdue update! I've not been as productive the past month, but I did create a 120pt list for both factions and I've assembled and undercoated all the models I need to field those lists. I also assembled and black-lined all the suppression tokens . Anyway, here are the first finished models of that batch, a Kaddar Nova and Shadow Walker. Of course they get a piece of terrain too: a ruined factory. This is the only piece of terrain I made that basically has its entire base covered in pva + sand, and it warped like nobody's business, which I was clever enough not to anticipate Maybe I'll think of some solution at some point...













Some more angles in my gallery.

Nicely done. The grey looks great on the Karists.


For the building base - paint PVA on the underside (a nice thick coat, so it softens the cardboard) and glue it down to a piece of masonite or thin ply.

I'm afraid my cardboard (or posterboard, rather) isn't soft at all any more, there's already a coat of glue on the underside... Clamping it to some wood might be a good idea though... or vinyl floor tiles... The Pringles tower in one corner, mound of sand in the middle and foamboard 'bracket' in front really did some odd things warp-wize... oh well, lesson learned.

Yeah, I'm covering a lot of ground with some cardboard strips and 2 terrain sprues, amazing things.

Anyway, thanks all I'm thinking some bot handlers and another big ass building are next.

This is an epic thread, I love how you're building your world with terrain alongside the units.

I've been travelling the last few weeks but this makes me want to get back to my Medge stuff...

I have no idea why I never subbed to your thread, sorry Oddball. I can't believe that you had used Orange too!!!!! Loving the scheme you came up with. I'll be sticking with the black and silver to contrast on mine, but your's have come out tops. Wish I had the space to make the terrain too, they also look great.

Thanks! I'm much happier with my scheme on the Contractors than on the robots, but I promised myself a quick colour scheme for everything MEdge and so far the bots are the only models where I accomplished this .

Moar stuff! I got my largest buildings out of the way now, so I'll be focusing more on models again for the next update (I hate how large stuff always takes loads of time, even with a simple, crude paint job). For now I have an Epirian vehicle workshop and two Bot Handlers:

















It's dark and I'm grumpy for having thrown half a bottle of Nihilakh Oxide over the workshop, so the pics are worse than usual. A few more angles in the gallery. Next, I think I'll work on some Angels .
