    My sorta-pot-painting: I dip a wet brush (not damp, wet) into the pot, take a few strokes on the lids of my paints to get rid of the excess, and then apply brush to the model. If I needed more I'd go back to the pot lid and then repeat the process. If the paint dried on the lid, I'd repeat the process.

    So I was still basically thinning the paints to get the consistency I needed but was also technically painting from the pot.

    I do this when I have a quick detail to paint and can't be bothered with my wet palette. Mostly I use my wet palette though.

    Altmann, Sharp, et all, your insistence on using a palette is holding you back as painters. Your models will never reach the next level unless you start painting from pots.

    The idea of not painting from pots was just invented by the palette lobby to increase lagging sales.

    I haven't painted anything in about two months now. First I was waiting for my airbrush so I could prime. Now I've just been priming stuff but can't decide what I actually want to paint.

    Also, airbrush is awesome for priming. Except when the primer / Windex mixture is too far on the "Windex" side (or not mixed properly) and all that comes out is muddy Windex.

    I know warstore sells the Vallejo grey airbrush primer, but anyone know a US store that sells the black?

    Wait, you chuckleheads still use physical… devices… to paint? Heathens! The Mind Arts are truly the only way to paint anything; a true master can apply monomolecular layers with but a blink.

    I use my eye lashes as a brush and actually do apply layers with a blink of the eye.

    Well crap. I need some more varnish. I've got a unit of Termagants, a unit of Warriors, some Gargoyles and a Carnifex to seal. The can of Dullcote I have at the moment is nearly done.

    Anyone have experience with Army Painters matt varnish? I've heard it's not quite as matt as Dullcote, but if I can get 4x as much for the same price, I'll go that direction.

    It's satin.

    Anymore I just use brush-on varnish. It's like $13 for a jug that's going to last me forever at Michael's. Plus none of the issues that go along with sprays.

    I bought some ceramite white base and some of the yellow glaze. I'm going to try to make myself do a test model this weekend to see how Imperial Fisty that combo looks.

    fuck I hate painting rhinos.

    I had the spare that I was going to sell but then I looked at one of them I was currently using - all glue scarred, covered in ugly-panels-to-hide=greater-ugliness - and decided bite the bullet and paint the new one while turfing the old one.


    Man, fuck I hate painting rhinos. fuck fuck fuck.

    this is how I feel about painting rhinos

    I paint from pot lids, though I load up the brush and then dip it in water to thin to what I need. Dropper bottles, don't really care if I get more than I need, it's like a drop or two of paint, seriously. Except when the tip is clogged and I squeeze and then all of a sudden a whole bunch comes out at once. That annoys me.

    Anyone know who makes these bases? Seems I forgot the link.

    Think they're called "Dark Temple" or somesuch.

    Assembled Asharah, minus the backpack. Haven't decided if I want it on her at all, it feels a bit distracting.

    Question for the magnetisers out there. How do you stop the contact surfaces getting damaged? First I tried just painitng over the surfaces, but it would chip. Then I tried applying a layer of varnish, but that just seems to make the surfaces stick and peels the varnish off eventually. Do you just live with the contact surfaces getting damaged since, well, people won't see it?

  • CaenemCaenem Registered User regular
    Heavily varnish the contact area and the surrounding area. It doesn't matter what people won't see, but you want to make sure the chips don't end up tearing the paint around it and causing damage people WILL see.

    But you, pig, are a lucky one. Tell us what we wish to know, and you may yet keep your bacon.

    thin thin thin layer of green stuff over the magnets. Stop damage on the contact point, and gives the added benefit of giving the magnets some traction so they don't spin around freely for heavier arms and such

    I finished painting that stupid rhino.
    Here's some photos of the rhinos. They're all stupid. The one I just finished is the one labeled Valhalm.

    Here's some close ups of doors I used trying to make the stupid, boring rhinos look less stupid and boring.

    They're still stupid.

    And I just realized the rhino I turfed due to my own cluckerfustering of it was the one Gabriel Pitt got me for secret Santa. Fuck.

    Did salvage the Forge World doors, though. I'll use whats left for scenery.

    Is that one wolf skull wearing a hat?

  • MatriasMatrias Registered User regular
    There's also one with a beard. Chapter house's doors are kind of strange.



    think he put the half-diamonds on because the sculptor had such trouble with the top part of thee wolf skull. The ones he didn't hat up, I had to sculpt over all of them because the anatomy on the skulls were so bad.

    Not the Squig's bases were rimmed with vallejo black. So shiny...

    Picking up the new GW black tomorrow and I'll go over the base rims again.

    Or, you know, matte varnish.

    And seriously WTF is up with VGC black being super glossy?
