Looks good so far Phil!

After a few weeks of painting Dark Angels (Chaos scumbags..), I've gone back to Dorn based Imperium:

Creative Assembly have seemingly acquired the rights for Warhammer Fantasy!

Could we see a modern Dark Omen, or perhaps even proper scale fantasy battles in the near future? If so, colour me in Orkish warpaint and let's get clobbering!

Interesting to see the two IP's split but hopefully we shall we some good warhammer games with a high standard as GW take greater care of their digital IP now.

Though hopefully THQ does well with CO2 and gets the next DOW out the door as its needed, but now back to the painting.

Im tempted to get the Empire army box set though im not sure if i should start a third warhammer army, still have 2 to finish and 1 with a army box thats mostly untouched.

Picked up Averland Sunset and a few browns + white/silver drys so will see how well they work- may do a mass clear out of old paint.

Not strictly Games Workshop, but I don't think we have a thread for other modelling. I'm trying to polish up some of my painting/airbrushing skills ready to take on some bigger stuff, so I've done a 1/76th Jagdpanther, because it's dirty cheap to make:


Not weathered or added decals to it yet, which is something I've really got no experience of in recent years. Anyone got a decent tutorial to get me started beyond dry-brushing?

Hey Krikkit not sure about tanks, only thing i can recomend is the forge world master class books- mianly for 40k vehicles so tansk/flyers etc

Their are 2 volumes now but show you how to use their weathering powders etc to make some really stunning tanks.

http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/Modellin...OLUME-ONE.html


Also guys on paints which are the best reds as i picked up Khorne/Waz daka and Evil Sun scarlet, browns i picked up dryad bark and gothor brown.

Also got the medium and 2 dry paints praxi white and necron compound.

Krikkit: http://paintbard.blogspot.co.uk/2011...t-effects.html There's lots and lots of different rust effect instructions there.

As for weathering.. Depends how extreme you want to go.

Typically I use the foam from model cases for this, but I can't see why a square of sponge with a rough torn end couldn't achieve the same effect.


1: Decide what colour would be the "base" coat (To me it looks like the Khaki colour on your tank) before all the camo colours, and sponge that on lightly around the areas that're likely to see wear.

2: Sponge on a dark metallic silver, considerably more sparse than the previous step.

3: Use the side of a pencil (Or stick of graphite, depending on what you have to hand) on edges that've been given the sponge treatment - That's a Fw tip and it works wonders.

Grease and what not I do with oil paints, making runs and gunking it up for more concentrated looking bits.

Rust and the like I use weathering powders. Tamiya do some, they come in little makeup trays with three colours, or Forgeworld do them in single colour tubs. They're both about as effective as each other IMO.

Thanks guys, I'll have a look. I'm not actually that fussed for the battlefield-fresh look, just something a bit more like a real vehicle is what I'm after (i.e. service yard-fresh perhaps?). These ~1:70ths are a bit small for going into mad detail, but it's all practice for 3x 1:35th tanks I have waiting for paint.

Also, having switched from Humbrol enamel to Tamiya acrylics and with a cup-fed rather than bottle-fed airbrush I'm a happy bunny - it's much less hazardous to my health and much easier to clean up when it's all water soluble.

A final shot of this weekend's work:

I really like Tamiya acrylics - They seem to make it through an airbrush much smoother than GW paints, in some instances, more so than Vallejo air IMO.

That's because Tamiya ones use an oily base that takes longer to dry and has a self lubricating effect in air brushes. Really great to use but I'm not a fan of the clean up afterwards.

I give my airbrush a thorough clean after every use anyway, since GW paint seems to gum it up little by little if I don't, so I guess I don't see the difference in that regard.

Hoping to get some casting done tonight, got some really low viscosity resin delivered today, so I'm hoping that makes my lightning claw obsession better casting wise.

Plodding on with some Fists. Not really happy with the banner so far. I'll do another night on it, but I suspect stripping and redoing is going to be the course of action.

Any of you guys had any experience using future floor polish to make washes?

Seen a guy in a video doing it and it looked well, anyone have any tips on where to get this stuff over here in the UK?
