So whilst building my second wraithseer, I decided to have a crack at experimenting with UV resin to see if indeed I can create a cool forcefield effect to go with wraithseer no1. converted/dynamic model pose.
(No. 2 will be the stock standard nothing fancy as It would be nice to have at least one model in my army that looks as intended and not go bonkers with conversion lol)

Couple things:

I don't really know what properties UV resin has other then it goes rigid and hardens when exposed to UV light. I haven't been able to find much in terms of how it reacts with paints and varnishes... If anyone has any tips I'm all ears.

Id definitely recommend wearing a respiarator as this stuff really gives off fumes when you UV treat it and stinks like hell and cant be good for you!

I thought the ballon I poured it on would pop as the UV reacts and gets hot but it didn't. Interesting the UV came away from the surface of the ballon as it got treated.
However even after treatment, it's still very sticky. I tried washing it under a tap to see if its just some residue but it continues to sort of sweat. WIll leave it overnight to see if it stops. ive treated it several times to see if theres any reaction to Uv but ther is not.

Anyway, I think this method has potential and this is a very cool material to work with.
I used the green toxic one I used on bases and don't use much of as I wanted to keep the clear for once I have an idea of how to work with this. The key is to be patient and do not try to spread the resin with anything as that creates tiny bubbles.

WHat Id like to do on the proper attempt once painted is to have sort of like bullets being stopped sort of mid air entering the forcefield. I have an idea how I'm going to try to do that so will try that sometime next week on my test piece. No idea if this wil work lol. Also will try some inks and stuff on it to see how it handles colourshift paint. Could be interesting.

Anyway so this is the sort of proof of concept pictures I have for now. Im open to any sugestions or useful information regarding making realistic force fields or working with UV resin..

So far that's a very cool effect! Looks very naturalistic as opposed to some T'au energy shields I've seen done that use more tech-like hexes.

Cool force field, and pretty simple to make by the sounds of it. The balloon was a piece of genius! How do you intend to suspend it? Flight stand or does it extend to the ground?

I plan on the final piece to be extending all the way to the ground. Ill cover any frosting from CA glue with scatter/rubble.

Also getting a heat gun and some acrylic sheets. Will try to mould those over a small ball of some kind. Really need to break the airbrush out again and get some inks to plat with tinting and stencils.

If the UV resin is similar or the same as 3d printer resin, washing it for a few minutes in 91% isopropyl/rubbing alchohol and/or putting it out in direct sunlight like a window, possibly in a clear thing of water you don't mind not using for eating again seems to clear the stickyness for my prints.

So I have based the specters and maugan ra before he goes on a walk again lol.

I decided that these models don't have anough death and skulls on them. (especialy maugan ra lol)
So I went through a lot of skulls to make these funky bases.

Not sure what's next. I probably should start painting again really.
Am really enjoying the building and not feeling a burn out at all so think I will keep going.

Think will do banshees next from BOP and new Jain zar.
Then do a squadron of tanks plus knight and stop there for painting.

Right.. so ive been working my butt like a sweaty hamster.
Taken advantage of having free reign of the house for a week so ive done A LOT of airbrush things.
Once I get my new hobby space I shuld be able to do things ad hoc and not have to create huge work piles to make the set up time efficient. Unfortunately I bought, broke and returned 2 cheapo airbrushes - I wanted a cheap one to do the high volume base painting with the red and orange but the 1st one clogged up within seconds and kept clogging up... The replacemt, more expensive, the screwy bit of the oring/nozz broke off when I unscrewed it to fit a bigger size one...Alas My trasty Iwatta CS Neo did all of the work. I think im not going to bother getting any other airbush for a while. Wanted to get a cheap one to do bulk stuff and keep this one for more precision work but hey ho. But got a decoupling thingy and a proper airpush holder so making things much easier. Will look into getting a splitter and a secondary airbrush down the line for sure.

So lets break it down.

1st the wraiths -

Really happy how these guys have turned out so far!
I have learned from my previous experience. And thing the heads and the weapons have some out much better.
Also the general armour hue, is much more pronounced. Colour shift paint is very hard to capture on camera so trust me when I say the bodies look pretty cool.
Unfortunately the GSW order of green and really light blue colourhsift has still not arrived so I had to push ahead without and make do with the darth blue and cobalt blue paints, these make quite a dark finish. I wanted to apply a final lighter highlight and a green tint to really bring out the organic insectoid otherworldy effect I am chasing. Alas I can always do some masking and just layer thes eon top. Once done I can start painting the details. Doing the fins by airbrush was the way to go. Building up yellow is such a pain in the neck. WIll slab a shade on these and add a bit of touch up highlighting. Hope to do some transfers on these guys. However the ground work is done and Im happy to sue them in tomorrows game Also as mentioned the dynamic wraith seer will be getting a forcefield eventualy. Cant see in the picture but he has a little guardian slumped up on his base. So I'm trying to paint a story that he's trying to protect the living and throwing up a forcefield.

2nd. - Warlocks/ charcters and AOK


So having the concept of my original warlocks with their psychicly generating superheating spears and swords I decided to take this opportunity to use the airbrush to build the fades up. And Oh my god how good it looks for very little time investment. Literly did a couple colours whilst doing the wraith heads and warp spiders. Compare dto the ones I did by hand these guys already look incredible. One thing I did accidentally by not masking and not enough control is build up a a bit of an OSL effect. I actualy really like it on some of these guys so Im probably going to keep it when I paint these fellas. Also Being able to do precision zenithal highlighting should make the cloths and tunic fols much easier to paint to a high standard.

The AOK is basically just based and I did a fade on his head and sword. Im quite anxious about painting him to be honest. Hes a very old culpt, there is lot of detail there and none of it seems to be consistent if that makes snese. Like hes made up of several different things and its not clear where one ends another begisn and what colour these should be. Even the GW artwork he looks far too messy in terms of colour pallete. I wil need to have a good ol think about him when I have chance.

Asurmen and maugan ra are juts primed with a can, nothing special there. I feel very similarly about Asurmen as I do AOK. So not sure how hes going to turn out. Unfortunately I don't have any blue highlighting airbrush paints so Im going to work on him by hand. With Maguan Ra, im planning on suing black contrast all over and then pick out the bony details. Should be a nice easy job lol.

Lastly - Warp spiders and Fire dragons and shadow specters.

Im really happy how these guys are shaping up. Its a new experience painting something that's been airbrush based and highlighted. So will be interesting. Im mos curious about edging but should be fine. I think I have mostly got my light sources correct.

I really LOVE how the warp spider back packs have turned out. Think they look incredible. Cant wait to see them once they are finished.
Bit concerned about the over spray on the back of their heads though... Ill have to sort it out somehow. Might be real lazy and do a pass of red over the heads with the ol aitrrush. Anyway I also did some fades on their weapons. Hoping to match the support weapons approach.

Shadow spectres are just straight up greayseer. Contrast apothecary white on top is the plan.

The ground work has been laid.
Overall quite happy how everything turned out. There haven't been any major mishaps which is surprising given the workspace conditions.

Also I think I'm going to need anew airbrush booth... The one I have doesn't seem to have any suction now. Maybe I've ruined it with spray cans. I had to change the filter because I really went to town.

Looking great.

I like the idea of the Wriathseer protecing a still-living dude. I love i when people tell stories with their models. It can be what elevates it from craft to art, in my opinion.

Though my guards may sleep and my ships may lay at anchor, our foes know full well that big guns never tire.

Thanks guys! I'm particularly happy about the wraiths colour shifting and the heads. Looks really cool on the table!

Just have a support weapon to finish building.

I have enough variety of things primed and ready to go!! I'm feeling the inspiration coming as I have plenty of ideas for battle lists and these are firing up my hobby mind.

I'm going to start with the shadow spectres, and Magun- Ra. The spectres have a FW book on the way so I want to at least use them once or twice before they get their rules rewritten and probably nerfed lol. Or if they get better make a staple of my army.

So I veered off track a little bit.

Sort of got side tracked by making a Yvraine conversion.

Here's what I have so far. Not sure How I feel about the head. It does look a bit too much like the Mistweaver head.. I really dislike what Yvreine's head looks like so its an improvement lol. What im planning to do is to add the headdress element somewhere depending on how the remaining bits fit. Maybe I'll add it to the girnyx lol.
I'm thinking of using the hip cloths as shoulder pieced in the mock up it looked quite cool.

I think the new head looks good. It is similar, but not too close to the original.

Ive aded the shoulder pieces. I think it looks awesome!

Not really sure about the headress. It makes it obvious its supposed to be Yvraine.
Still tempted to put it on the cat XD

Nice! It all came together great. The use of the hips on the shoulders and the headpiece as a collar of sorts really changes the model's sillhouette. Quite unique.

Its attached to just behind where the ears would be.
I think this is some of my best work so far in terms of converting. Really like how she's turned out. Cant wait to paint her.

However now looking at the pics im not sure about the stabby knee as its obscuring the weapon and drawing too much attention and not quite fitting the aesthetic.

I might clip it.
