Anyone here use the dipping technique here?
Heh. Only a long time ago when for the hell of it I got some Epic Land Raiders for a fiver when I was ten, couldnt be arsed to paint them properly so I just dunked them in a pot of good old Humbrol enamel.
"It fits like clothes made out of wasps!"
I suppose I ought to define what I mean by dipping.
Here are pics of dipped tyranids. Dipping is literally taking the figure, and dunking it in something, (in this case, varnish).
Here's a spinegaunt before dipping
Same gaunt, after dipping
Also, is phobos mentally ill or something? Why would he care if I posted a link?
Anyway, I want to know if anyone here's tried it before I go and ruin $180 worth of freshly stripped 'nids. If all goes well, I'll be buying up 'nid lots in bulk, and reselling them on ebay... I want to raise enough to buy myself some big, forgeworld bugs for my own nid army.
sorry dude since your new i will go easy but anyways putting links to other forums in this forum is against the rules and you should take it down before phobos or one of the mods sees it
and there ya go
When cities burn and armies turn
and flee in disarray,
Cowards will cry 'tis best to fly
and fight another day,
But warriors know it in their marrow when they
die and fall,
It is better to have fought and lost than not have
fought at all.
the keeper of the stuff!
the knower of werty!
the master of the obvious!
looks cool. it seems realy easy to do also.
All I can say about those models is that they are really well painted...love them
That nids look cool, too glosy for me, but cool, i never knew someone who did this kind of painting, probably if u use some kind of water based, thin varnish it may work , if u dont want to screw ur whole army just dip one cheap small plastic model and see how it works, probably if u use ink it may work too
To get rid of the glossy effect they could be painted over again with a few layers of matte varnish. This works really well with most models anyhow.
Hmm... First time I've heard the word dipping be used in a painting forum, so I'm sure you know by now that I've never used this technique before. I don't think I would ever use it either, it seems somewhat, uncontrolled, untill convinced otherwise. I would rather just brush it on, that way I have full control over the amount of varnish on the brush.
If Wolves were meant to fly, wouldnâ€™t the Emperor have given them wings?
One other question - if I have some gaunts that have been primed black, can I prime them again with white? Or will it show through? Since the basecoat is supposed to be camo green, does it even really matter?
