I think your models look fantastic. The glow on the power fist is, as has already been said, really nice, and your halves are very clean and nicely executed. Keep up the good work. I have found that the cure for slow painting is to paint more. The more you do it the more comfortable you will become and the faster you will achieve the results that you desire. Look forward to more of your stuff.

Thank you all for your input. I really appreciate it!

"Have you analysed why you do paint when you do?"

I have thought a little about that. I found that I paint because I enjoy it, actually. It is that simple.
The reason for me painting on rare occations, could maybe be because I am a slacker, and could rather just sit down with a video game than "working" with paint. I think it is something mental that I will have to work with, so I can define "painting" like I do "gaming", if that makes some sence

Anyway, I promised I would show my progress, so here is the model as he stands now (Sorry for the bad pictures, will work on that):

What have I done:
Work up the red, now only missing the orange hightlights
Defined the gold, still more layers to do
Washed all the metal
Based the wings (may have to do it differently)
Various details

It is still far from finished, and it may not look like I have gotten much further, that being because I am so slow, and that I work wery much on getting the red to the standard it is at now.

And now for my super secret recipe for red! (as it was asked for).
I'm gonna be so kind that I share it with you!

The Eavy metal way of painting red, described in the White Dwarf feautering Space Hulk :grin:

1: 1:1 Blood red and Dark flesh
2: 2:1:1: chaos black, blood red and dark flesh for blacklining (Yes you can rather use a wash if you want. I would recomend devlan mud if so)
3: 3:1 blood red and dark flesh
4: Pure blood red

This is what I have done on the figure above

Highlighting:
5: Blazing orange
6: 2:1 Blazing orange and vomit brown
7: Wash it all with Baal red to tie the layers together
8: Stage 6 again, to bring out the highlight

Thats my "what to do" list on the red armour


Hope you like him so far. Any C&C welcome! :)

Maybe u could help me out, but for some reason when I wash my pure blood red that has been highlighted with blazing orange, the red is no longer...how should I describe it...has a clean and whole appearance, instead it looks kinda dirty and discolored

Hmmm. could it be because you use too much of the wash? It will gather in "pools" on the model if too much is used, and will result in there being dark patches on the model (looking dirty?). Do you have a picture? It would be easier to try and address the problem if I had something to look at :)

u mind if I post the pic here or should I just post it in my project log?

Tossidin 03-22-11 01:03 AM

To make it tidy it would be easier to take it on your blog seeing that you already have one. Just give me a chime when you have posted it :)

DaStonedOrk 03-22-11 01:33 AM

Well, I don't know if u can tell from the pics I have, but the assault marine on the far right in every pic is what I'm talking about. Its kinda hard to c, maybe I'll take another pic but its alot worse in person and with dimmer lighting.

Complete sense. There are several things I really enjoy doing whilst I am doing them (painting among them) that I have difficulty starting because of the effort involved to set things up &c.

There must be something wrong with me, cause I am sitting down to paint again :unsure:
