That Termi is looking good.

On a side note, why did it never occur to me to turn my old solid plastic paint pots upside down to use as grips? That's genius.

@ Graphite - Yeah the old hex pots are pretty much perfect as ghetto paint handles. If you have any of the pots theres a good chance you've got some that are dried up and they are just the right size to fit a 25mm base. Not sure how they'd work with the newer base sizes. But for 40mm bases i also use use Tamiya pots as they have a bit more weight to them which helps if its a metal mini.

Thanks! Last time I did an OSL I botched it pretty badly so i wanted to try again. And what better model could you have than this for a second chance?

Thank you! It was fun and simple with a very rewarding result.

Thanks! It seems we were on the same wavelength for this challenge (plus my Guardian-sized Eldar Avatar is already painted).
Maybe someone else will do some more old school Orks and together we can make a decent OOP Mob

I still need to take another picture with better lighting (if that's allowed).

Some limited progress.

My efforts at a blue tinted white armour are passable at best, but I must press on!





I have also done some airbrush shading of the spider tank. It was rather easier with last months’ shuttle, but I’m satisfied with the results for now. On to the detailing on that one. I got a darker grey for the joints and stuff, but I’m a bit worried it’s a bit too green. I’ll
Give it a shot anyways.

@Baloon dog- that looks ace. I like the use of the scenics to give a range of greebly old textures

@Aash - the more the merrier. Still a couple of weeks to go, so plenty of time to join in.

I managed to push through the trough of dissatisfaction (largely thanks to this comp) and with the help of a brand new brush tidied up Elsa.





Not really going to be winning any awards, but it looks not horrible at arms length which is all I can ask for

Still a few details to pick out and some metallics to add some highlights to, but definitely getting there.

Oh, now that's looking much better. The gold makes the blue/white tone of the armour work better somehow. Somebody better at colour theory than me might be able to explain why!

If I could suggest - putting a colour between the blue nodules on the chest and the white armour plate might help separate those out more as well.

It would make it look better, but the details are super fiddly. I might try with a drakenhof wash just at the base to define the two areas from each other.

That would do the job - I'm a huge fan of Gryphone Sepia, which doesn't exist any more, but can just pool in detail and leave the surrounding colours pretty untouched.

If you've got a very fine nib technical pen, 0.2mm or smaller, that can sometimes work as well. And if you use a water soluble pen it'll just wash off if it goes wrong (if the paint around it is dry)

First one done, might try for a paler armour for the other two, more Heresy era Death Guard I think.

White is notoriously difficult to work with because of the size of the pigment in the suspension. On that note, is the texture on the model from the paint or is it the model?

On another note, you might try mixing your paints on a palette to get the shades you want instead of trying to rely on a wash which is going to leave this coffee stain effect when imposed on white surfaces. Even airbrushing inks on white is a touchy game without some precision. With an irregular surface an ink is just going to hurt you more than help. But that's just my two cents.

I’ve finished my entry, the 3 plague marines from the 8th edition “First Strike” set. My first attempt at Plague Marines, the armour on the first one ended up a bit more green than I wanted, I prefer the colour in the other two. I’m trying to get used to using contrast paints, and pretty happy with the final results.
