Looks like a good set of goals!

For Gaslands you may want to take a look for this. It comes with 2 of the sprue pictured and makes arming Hotwheels/Matchbox cars waaay easier. Plus each sprue makes a motorcyclist that’s actually close in scale!

Thanks Chaotic Mind! That goes directly on my to shop list. ATM I‘m scouring my bitz box. Problem is small weapons, because they almost all have hands on them, that‘ll need some work with a file. But there is some usable stuff.

And a little progress, getting the new year into a higher gear. Trying to get that WarCry terrain out of the way. Built everything according to the assembly instructions and now I have to decide how to build the rest of the wall sections. Want to get it done til the middle of the week, because temperatures might allow for priming.
Also on the table are the two minis for the painting comp, 3 WIP sisters and the Icebrow Hunter I bought used and painted. He is in the progress of being finalised with an add-on paintjob. I would have loved to strip the model, but afaik you can't do that to finecast.
The little photobomb on the right side is a custodes test model. I stripped the first of the ones I painted in spring of 2018 and am now doing a new color scheme that looks promising.

Starting on the first Gaslands cars. Upgrade frames should arrive in the next days and these two cars got stuff from the bitz box. I tried "painting" the black car with dirt, because I liked the color it had, but let's just say, that the experiment failed. It looked weird and came of at a touch, which is not ideally for a game Luckily one bath later he was again in mint condition and both will now be normally painted once I primed them.

Viterbi,

Yes, you need to seal the sand pigments down. I do it with a then watered down varnish and then seal with Dule Coat when I am happy with the result.

When you are in a state where there is too much pigment, a brush with a little water can remove the excess.

Less is always better.

Hope that helps,

CB

Oh man, that armor scheme is bold and super effective! The outcome speaks of the decisions that went into the process. Definitely worth every step, and I love the contrast of both the gold trim and the not-so-futuristic leather straps. So many great Sisters schemes around, I'm kind of losing my mind wanting try to mimic them all!

Thanks for the tips Captain Brown! I'm a total noob when it comes to pigments, I have only used them once before on my rhino. And I'm pretty sure I did it wrong because I put some pigment on my palette, got some water on them and slapped them on the rhino. I like the effect, but I'm not sure, it was right I think I'll get back to zero on the pigments and try it on some unimportant miniatures first.

Thanks MacPhail! I hope you'll be able to tackle your army box in the near future, excited to see your scheme on the new models! And I gotta be honest, I never gave much thought about the leather a s a contrast to the gold, it is just that easy to do with Goregrunta-Fur over Wraithbone and I'm a very lazy painter

I'm slowly getting into the hobby groove again, atm trying to get a color scheme for my mawtribes down. Quicky did a test on one of the gluttons, needs some detail work on the belt. Mostly contrast and some technical paints. Quite happy with it in terms of speed, but should have left the arms of, there were some parts, that I couldn't reach. On other models I will test another color in the middle of the belly plate, it looks a bit to boring this way. And I hate taking pictures, because while assembling, after priming and while painting I didn't realize the mould lines on his arms.



In view of the learnings of that one glutton the new tyrant will get very special treatment. I glued only his feet to the body and the horns on his bellyplate, everything else will be glued after painting.

Ogres with yellow pants .

The pigment you used for the Gaslands car, was that one of the texture paints from GW?

Good luck on the weathering powders, I’ve only been brave enough to try them once. I don’t know for sure but Hotwheels actually seem to have a really smooth, glossy finish which may be the cause of your troubles.

Blood splatter looks good on the ogre, hopefully the tyrant can get some of the same without catching the evil revelations of the camera!

Every time I see one of these Ogres with brightly colored pants I can't help but be reminded of Karnov. Good job and sorry about the mold line. Looking forward to the tyrant.

Thanks ChaoticMind, the tyrant should fare better, because he has so many parts, that I seem to have eradicated the few mould lines that were there.

Yeah, I'll brush up on theory about using pigments before attempting it again And you may be right that the cars normal finish didn't help my attempt. Well, some cars are almost ready for priming now, only the weather stops it atm and need to glue some weapons on. Thanks again for the tip with the upgrade frame. I bought it and combined with my bitz box I should have enough to arm a lot of cars.

Thanks youwashock! And I had to google Karnov. 2-3 years before I started with video games The other five guys are a little more lucky, they'll get the mould line removed and then a bit of Wraithbone slapped on those newly filed parts.

And these cars that will get painted first, need to glue some weapons from the upgrade frame, but am still getting to grips with the rules and couldn't really decide what weapons to use.

Good start with the Gaslands stuff. Nice thing about the game I should how inexpensive it I should to make a new team, so another car with different load outs is always welcome.

Thanks! It really is nice, because the cars are only 1-2€. It's really tempting to buy lots of them But I should have enough for now, to build some teams to test the team with some friends.

Was able to prime the cars on tuesday and had 15 minutes to spare yesterday so started with the first car. He's getting the color scheme I started on my corvus blackstar.

Yep, easy buy in cost, but then when you wind up with a parking lot (full scale size of course ) full of them you start thinking how’d I get here .

I like the paint scheme, seem s very Tron-esque .

Thought the same thing. Tron or Automan. Big fan.

And you're both right, Tron was the inspiration for that scheme I did it the first time last February, when I experimented on the spindle drones and did one in that scheme.

And as I'm seemingly a hobby butterfly this month I built the Arcos, because I'll play Kill Team this weekend and against orks I surely need a bit more punch.

They look very cool. Suitably gritty and savage. Liking the look of all the cars revving on the starting line in the background.

Thanks, they are some gruesome models, so much scar tissue, tubes and other stuff rammed into their skin. Yeah, I have some primed cars and for where I'll keep them in original condition and just need to add weapons. A friend of mine gifted me a 36x36 gaming mat and some painted mdf containers so we should be play-ready some time february.

Thanks! If something gets used up good on my painting table, it's blood for the blood god paint

Thanks, it's actually just undiluted contrast flesh color over wraithbone coat, was super easy.

Small progress, I only seem to be painting atm when I need the models for play, as is the case with these two ogors for mordheim. Sadly Wyldwood didn't turn out so good as a skin tone on such a big model. I may try some edge highlights to mitigate that. Was thinking about Dommbull brown or something in that direction but would appreciate other suggestions!

And finally did some more work on one of my entries for the paintcomp, he is slowly getting there, nearly everything has it's base color, but with all those details there is a lot of cleanup where I painted on already painted stuff.

I think the Wyldwood may look better after you get some of the other areas painted. If not, a few highlights to pick out the contour will work.
   
Made in de
Regular Dakkanaut






You were right youwashock, it looked a little better after finishing him (and not putting him under direct light) May try some highlights at some point, but not to soon. Used the ogres in Mordheim yesterday and it does not work well, so they quickly disbanded and will get touched up when I paint the rest for WarCry.

And I have a new mini on the table and am pretty excited for that one. A friend of mine doesn't like painting and bought a painted ork army on ebay for use in Kill Team, but the boss was lacking color. After badgering him for a few month he agreed, that I'm allowed to paint his ork. Started blocking the green yesterday to get a feeling for the mini.

I have found that when tackling flatter, larger plain areas with Contrast that the Contrast medium is your friend. Maybe give the next time you tackle Ogor skin with it a go with a 50/50 mix?

The Arco Flaggelants look great, doubly so for a speed paint job. Best of luck with the Orks, the minis from ASOBR are so characterful.

Thanks ListenToMeWarriors!

And I believe you already suggested once that I should use Medium for skin tones, should have listened

Fortunately it's only one ork, so I can go back to sisters, after he and the beastman are done. But it is a really nice sculpt.
