Just going to show the progress on my Mino's board now I can show pics again! and the other large product I need to paint! The board needs a background with some doors in it and it's pretty much done except for some slight weathering on the floor, probably just some dust or dirt.








And a Lucius Pattern Warhound! old school style.

I'm in the process of moving all of my blog's photos (5 years here, 7 years on wordpress) to both Imgur and Wordpress, both of which are really easy to use. Photobucket can go feth itself with this dick move. I expect that they'll back off somewhat from a backlash, but trust is broken and bridges are burned. Damo, you can still access all your old pics, and even if you've not got the energy to repair your years of blogging here, I'd still recommend that you spend an afternoon downloading them all so you've at least got them yourself.

The Minotaurs board looks great at this point... and whoa! Warhound?

Did a little more on the Chaplain terminator, a bit of cleaning up and detailing, still got his shoulders and cloak to do he's coming along pretty well I hope.



and I got a couple of these containers to build up, this one is being protected since it is full of skulls and hatred!



and while this isn't overly exciting it's still progress on RiTides massive fleet! all the larger ships are now base coated with the bone colour, i'm going to use my finger method to play around on these when wiping the wash off the top which then leaves the base as the highlight to work on before I weather them.

Thanks Sam, I must be doing something right if it's indeed looking very 'Minotaurs' :-) just need to find something to make the rear board from, I seem to have lost my large sheet of foam core......

I finished mt Chaplain! started my Minotaurs and found a new way to paint faces! pretty decent day I'd say so let's start with Mr Hatred.






I found a way to paint faces with only washes and while I was skeptical about it at first I'm really pleased with the result and the speed and ease of it! there;s a few steps to do it but it's not hard.

Liquid GS some rough hair on a bald head then prime and paint a light flesh colour.

a watery bloodletter glaze in the eye sockets and ears.

a purple/blue wash watered down and placed in eyes, hair and jawline.

watered down agrax over everything.

skin tone and black wash mixed together to do stubble.

paint hair dark grey.

mix agrax and seraphim sepia and wash over everything.

do metal and black details and done!

So firstly I'll show you my normal way I do the faces on a marine you've seen before.



and the new way.





And the beginning of the Minotaurs painting! I thought i'd better start them since I was washing stuff and base coating ships and they provided a nice distraction so far they have been washed in Nuln Oil and then the reds were painted and everything was all washed in Agrax

Nice start on the Minotaurs there, and the Chappy looks great. I believe I saw the same YouTube video just a couple of days ago, as well. It certainly gives a good effect from what seems like a dubious series of steps, doesn't it?

I've been using a similar method on and off for a while now it's main advantage is it keeps the actual number of layers of paint really low, which helps for faces were the detail is a little shallow (like Greyfax, for instance. Very small face with hardly any defined features). I think for larger, more defined heads like most SM models, the more traditional method is superior, but it's a good one to have in the arsenal for sure.

Minos are shaping up nicely!

Yeah I actually really like how it looks! great for more gritty marines and in some cases a better looking face for the model, I think it'll serve the Mino's well and certainly means I can do a heap at once! :-) maybe even tomorrow!? but first thing in the morning i've got to move the Nerd lair around for better feng shui and light for this time of the year! then get cracking on priming the last of RiTides ships and getting some more done with the bone layer on the hulls!

Where did you learn that face recipe? Sounds like something I need to try

Wow thats a brilliant way to paint faces! Definitely appreciate that, Damo- Will give it a try soon


Love the Chaplain... ughhhh that is PRETTY!


Minotaurs are looking promising as well... You've a really unique method to your painting (especially metals), and it's always interesting to see your WiP pics...

Hey Damo. I downloaded all your pics from Photobucket yesterday - so they're not lost. I'd suggest you do the same. it's actually pretty easy (at the moment, so get to it!)

Thanks Az! i've got most of the good ones from my 2nd PB account but i'm yet to go back to my first NF09 account and get grabbing! i'll hopefully get some time tonight. but until I do do you want to see some updates?

I started a few of the bare heads I needed to paint in the new style, I will go back to them all and add some more highlights and do a few more Damo-ish work on them but to get them all to this stage so damn fast is brilliant! and they look fine as they are when popped into some armour! so I strongly suggest those who hate painting them to try this way it's a doorway to a better life
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xk7cLxTAtJ8




and I washed some more of the Minotaurs Terminators, they are looking more bronze now and I added Asterion into some pics as a comparison. I went back in and added some scratches and then washed them with Sepia, next i'll go back to add black into the recesses and to bring some detail out and then do a final silver highlight, are they looking suitably Minotaurs? and do they hold up colour wise with asterion?






I reckon they all will look like a great and brutal force done like this! only a couple of months until they need to be finished ..... nah! i'll get them done easy! just need to finish RiTides fleet! which I may add i've been busily painting bone on the hulls again today and also priming the last 8 ships, I thought they'd be slightly easier task than what they have been so far very repetitive and fiddly painting on multiple models is hard until you get to the fun stuff like highlighting, edging and weathering! then they'll be worth showing you.

More Minotaurs progress, washed again with sepia and edge highlight with silver and that's the main armour done, also worked on the faces a little bit just adding a highlight to the cheeks etc. still the mouths and hair to do on them but I wanted to rest them in and see how they looked
also did a mega fast paint on the container, just primer and sponge weathering with a wash.

Not where I should be

Those Mino's look fantastic. Love the armour. Now you see, I can go with this being a space marine. Not silly bright, "here I am!"
Faces are looking great. Container is looking awesome.

Thanks Cam, I like the dirtier look to them too :-) it's believable enough for the bronze and it looks worn which I think appeals to their fluff being hyper aggressive marines and the plus side it's also fast to do! once the reds get some love and the faces finished they'll really pop I hope, I hope the red bolter casing on the tac marines will be enough of a spot colour along with their lenses to make them stand out.
