I was just reading the latest white dwarf and i saw the showcase army was painted using nmm (non metal metalic) techniques. I was wondering how many people use this and how many people could give me some help on trying this style.
When life gives you lemons, shut up and eat your damn lemons.
To use NMM you have to be pretty skilled in normal & freehand painting.
You will definitely need to pre-mix large number of colors (that makes painting NMM easier then having to mix them all over again every time you are painting), probably also get some retarder solution (supposedly helps with blending).
As a beginner to NMM myself, I'd suggest you try going with SENMM right from the start, because it's really a bit easier then regular NMM even though _seems_ more complicated.
I would dissagree, to be honest SE-NMM is harder, I have painted my entire deathwing using NMM as well as many =][= scale minis,
There are about a gazzillion tutorials on the web and no need to rreplicate them here, there are articles in our own article section, I would say the following:
The simplest way of doing NMM is layering(dry blending) - wet blending is really onyl recomended for very experianced painters.
I would recomend you master basic layering on standard colours (red is always a good place to start) before you try NMM
I would absolutley recomend buying or making a wet pallet, then you dont need to pre-mix
Everything you have been told is a lie!
i normally don't use nmm unless im painting up a special character / commander for my army
there are people out there however who paint every model with this technique.
and senmm is much more difficult to pull off than normal nmm.

I may be one of the only people around that doesn't really like this style of painting. I know that it takes skill to do but IMHO so does making metals like gold look good. O Well. I just like the shine that comes from the metallics, and the smell is nice to.
