I have another blog thread, but it is a complete disaster, massively untidy, and just awful also most of that blog is my first time ever dealing with any models in any form. So this blog thread is going to be the official Storm Blog Thread.


8.04.2019 - Starting to paint the Great Unclean One.

- Priming done - 5 dollar grey spray can called Quick Color.

- Base - Done / Paints used - Catachan Green + 10% of Screaming Skull thinned with Lahmian Medium.

- Wash Done - Paints used - abadon black 10% catachan green 90% with Lahmian Medium

- 1st highlighting to skin done - 15% screamin skull 85% catachan green. It'ss so vague ill probably do that one again.

Looking good. Keep bringing those highlights up. That model is so large you can get loads of high contrast areas in.

2nd and 3d highlights done, i don't know exact measurements, but its just about 15% more screamin each time i think...Also i did some "surgical" selective very dark wash in some areas that needed it. Also had to fix some mistakes i made which luckily have been fixed.

I think maybe one more highlight..? Then move on to all the wounds and all that nasty crap.

Looking good, are you enjoying painting him? I loved doing my GUO. You are definitely going about it the right way, he rewards lots of gradual highlights and coloured washes. Once the greens are done reds and purples really help. What are you going to arm him with in his left hand?

Thanks!.


Well im not bothering to magnetize since i mainly play / collect / paint for looks. So my favorite looking thing is the flail with the chains and skulls hanging off, so i will be attaching that down the road. Yeah this whole things been freaky as hell to be honest. So yeah its gonna be interesting how it turns out that's for sure.. Yeah i was thinking about some purples for some folds of the skin etc, i dont even have purple paint atm so ill see what i do, im doing this whole thing with like 6 paints in total so i might get more if i have too, but there was no way i was going to buy 29 paints like Duncan does in the videos, rather have the most raw experience rather then just knowledge and copying some one so it helps me in the future, because i need to understand gak or my brain freezes and i go in too state where i cant do any painting or any thing until i have figured this one thing out lol.

Have a good day.


Edit - The lips dont look so out of place now lol, i have fixed them, i'll post next time. You should post your GUO, would be neat to see.

Actually make that about 8 paints or so.


[Thumb - DSC017y5y54y45y99.JPG]
Update - Done lips, and intenstines, but i may highlight them further, and also gloss.

Highlighted it much much more. Dont know if i ruined it or what. Any way not much progess because i have been depressed. Also the horns are done, and i did some layer highlights on some areas instead of just dry brushing.

Have a good day.

Thanks heaps!

Just gotta add some fat etc and they will be done hopefully. But man this has been a dry brushing mess to be honest when it comes to his skin. I have been trying to correct mistakes that i made and doing so i have been making it paler and paler...but that is what i wanted so its kind of working out alright sort of. Any way all mistakes is fine because i will know next time to go about it differently.




Take care and thanks again.

Camera is only taking really blury pictures for smoe reason, so this is the best quality i can get at the moment, but will fix it soon, but you can still get a good idea from these ones. Different lighting with bright light, so looks way brighter then it is in reality.


I have done most of the "boils", also i highlighted all the red "muscle", did about 6 coats of every bit of "fat" because im using this really cheap crappy paint that is supposed to be for canvas's i think, but if works fine for this particular part of the model. Also the flesh i highlighted even more then the last photos all over. Washed sword and made a custom wash color for the skulls, none of which has been highlighted yet. Washed the red cloth on his back and that has not been highlighted yet either. Most of the "boils" that dont have "cracks" around them i just highlighted with screaming skull by doing a layer over them.

Any way yeah these boils and all the highlighting im doing is taking ages because im trying to be very careful number 1, number 2 i'm basicly mixing to create most of the colors im using with a limited amont of paints, so since im so noob at this, it takes ages for me to think what color to use and what color to highlight with and how bright or dark etc etc etc. It would be alot easier if i just bought 29 different paints and followed DUncan's GW videoes, but i think its looking alright so far.


The fat needs to be washed, i only just finished doing that, and as i say took alot of time thinking of what color to make that would make sense and since i used that cheap crap paint which i thinned alot it needed about 6 coats on al fat areas lol.


I said i would be finished but under estimated it not realizing i would spend so much time thinking about it.

So to be continued.

edit - Oh yah i washed the teeeth aswell. But no highlight yet, also did some nuln oil the two front boils of his stomach.

After a while of thinking how to wash the fat. I managed to come up with a color that i think works great. To do this i mixed 5 paints ahaha including medium and tap water. You can see in the picture my mess, its one of the shades of the red you see, which has mostly dissapeared now but some of that color still remains in the center of where the red area is, but yeah worked fine. These pictures are a bit better quality as-well.

Also did some more highlights on his face to make it stick out more since it was too much blended with every thing else n gak. Also some highlights on the boils that have cracks around it.

Also i included a picture of all paints i have used to do this so far. This is such an experiment for me and i'm just doing what ever i think will work.

Your GUO is coming along nicely, I like the muted greens you've gone with and the contrast with the red and yellow is particularly nice.

Yep, looks like solid progress on the GUO. Still have to do a whole bunch of small boils and other detail work, but it's going to be a great model when finished. I'd also recommend using different washes (red, purple, maybe yellow) on different parts of the skin to create variation. But anyway, don't try to rush it, it's a big model and it's okay to spend more time on it.

Yeah lots of details to finish yet. But as for the washes you mentioned, im a bit worried and not confident about where to put it etc or how to go about it so i dont know what im going to do there really. But yeah it had one major wash at the start with a darkened base color wash, and some nuln oil in some places of the skin, but yeah its a good idea you have said i just dont feel confident about my ability to do it at the moment ahaha. This is my first "complicated" model ever, only other thing i have ever painted thats complicated ish is the heldrakes so if i had more experience i would do that right this second.


Thanks, have a good day.

edit - Its just i have already almost messed this thing up badly already and sort of fixed the issue slightly that i had so now im worried to try new stuff ahaha

. I accidently spelt black paint on the pimples near his face so i need to think how to fix them aslo.....I used tap water only to make the wash i used or glaze what ever you want to call it lol, i ran out of medium and yeah. And luckily some magical reason i got purple from the black and red paint, lol i thought i was going to be just dark red but this is even better i think.

NOT FINISHED, will ADD MORE PURPLE/RED, and need to do the teeth still they are not done, and heaps of stuff needs to be done.

EDIT - THESE PICTURES ARE DARK MAKING THINGS SEEM NOT LIKE THEY ARE, REFER TO THE ABOVE PICTURE FOR THE REAL COLORS FOR THINGS LIKE THE FAT ( because i did NOT wash them again or any thing, its just the pictures are darker today for some reason )

I know how it feels to have painted something and then being afraid of messing it up if I go further. But I'm glad you tried the washes, you definitely haven't ruined the model! It looks better now!

And remember, you can always fix stuff by painting over it, as long as you use thin coats (and looks like you have). You should only consider stripping if you have badly obscured detail. If you strip, you need start the whole thing from scratch, not just the one part that you made a mistake on.

Thanks for the kind words man. Yeah iv changed it more since that picture to try make gak sort of work, either way this is definitly a unique looking GUO once you see the new pics. But yeah nah i wouldn't strip it after all this work, but i wouldn't mind getting another GUO or the Forgeworld one and trying another method, maybe in the future.


But yeah ill post some more tomorrow probably, have a good one!

Cant finish nurglings or finish really any thing at all until like 2 more days when im able to get some white paint and nuln wash. In the mean time i have made this base, basicly its cork wood in small peices all bunched together, pva glue / modeling paste all over it. Then cork sprinkled over top, the flat area will be for lava.

Scrapped that base in the above post and instead tried looking for cork wood, or some thing easy to carve etc but couldn't find any thing. Only could find this foam for gardens, it came in a big brick so i carved this part off. Its very sandy crumbly sort of foam so i have soaked it in paint, and now its covered in varnish and drying. Hopefully that works out, then ill finish base and finally finish this thing. Nurlgings are not done but heres a little picture.

Done. Except the black base is ruined i had to throw it away and will be some time before i can get another one. So any way this is the rock he stands on which was sitting on the base before it got ruined and i had to take it off.

Making base again ( my other base is ruined that you see it standing on in the other pictures ), here is the stuff i am making it with, its floral foam or some crap, meant for gardens, but its the dry version not wet version. I cant even start until the new base arrives, so i havn't been doing nothing except just now i did this and thought i should show.

I also soak it in this cheap grey spray paint so it absorbs it and hardens, then varnish it. Also tried to do some texture on the flat surface, but GUO will be taking up most of the space so you wont see the badly done checkereed looking middle area, just some of the outsides of it.

Any way, i much prefer this foam, then my first attempt at this if you scroll up and see that white molding paste mess i tried to do for the first one.


Edit - ALl i have done is spray painted it, nothing else yet, so looks crap atm.

You know, I think the base you did for the painting challenge was very good and the votes you got are a testament to that and the overall paint job!

Keen to see the new base though!

Cheers!


I carved it more, didn't like the above picture very much, so now its more rocky looking i think and less obvious that its carved. You cant really tell any way paints wet and pooled hard, once i paint it you will see all the edges and all that.

MIDDLE AREA IS GOING TO BE COVERED, IGNORE CHECKERED PATTERN. The whole thing will probly carved differently again next pictures since i cant make my mind up. I think just the front needs some more work.
