For all those that have been following my conversion of a Warsmith http://www.librarium-online.com/foru...onversion.html the time has now come to start painting him!:party:
At the moment all I been able to do is apply the main metal base colour which is of my own mixing(think of Tamiya gun metal and you're pretty close) Here he is so far:
I've put them as links because I want to show them as big as possible!
The next thing to do is give it a selective wash of 50% black ink and 50% brown ink. Then I shall start on the gold. Does anyone have any good mixes of gold shades they would like to share? Comments, criticisms and, most importantly, advice welcome!
Until next time :happy:
That is truly an amazing conversion, my only prob would be the chains on the servo arm and his left arm are sticking out a little too far, but other than that great. Can't wait to see it painted ;Y
Looks cool, can't wait to see it all the way through.
The more recent iron warriors i have painted (combi plasma terminators and some normal marines) I have used tin bits as a base coat with a heavy coat of shining gold on the top, then i used a 2:1 mix of chesnut ink and black ink to dull it down.
I dont want to keep on posting my models on other poeples logs, so, there are links to my photobucket account in my signiture, under the 'IW' folder for those that are interested.
I thought I might put this up now before I forget. Thanks for the comments so far!8Y
As I've said in the conversion thread, I want to paint the war hammer head to look like its bright hot metal and therefore have gathered a bit of reference to use. Now a nice guy like me couldn't resist sharing it!0:
Im thinking of doing my terminators with glowing blades too. I was thinking of using the same method that people use for lava bases
My idea would be to use very thin layers of a mix working from red gore to bright yellows mixed with whites. 4:1 water to paint ratio to keep them super smooth and thin. Then coat it all in a very thin layer of red ink then a thin layer of glossy varnish.
blend up to bad moon yellow, yoiu can add some white if you feel you must. Go as far into red as blood red and shade down with chaos black which you can blend into a metallic if you are that way inclined. Gloss looks quite nice on it too. Remember that the glow is a colder colour than the source.
Up, up and away!
Thanks for the painting advice. I think it would be best for me to try out the glowing metal effect on some old model..at least a few times to determine the best thinness for the paint. Unfortunately I can't do any painting today as I(and my parents) am completely clearing up my room. Chances are I can't do any for a couple of days*insert crying like a baby on the floor emoticon here)
Until next time! :happy:
p.s. keep replying so this thread stays near the top thankyouplease
Hey mate, I am halfway through a Forgeworld Avatar that I have done with the hot metal effect you're talking about.
He seems to be working so far!
I basically blended from red gore, up to skull white;Vallejo straight yellow at 50 : 50. Red Gore, blood red, flaming orange, blazing orange, yellow, to white, in about 12 layers.
But I call to God, and the LORD saves me.
