Thread: Cygnar

  1. #1

    Default Cygnar/ Legion and more to come

    So I started my first Warmachine army last week with Nemo in mind. This is my first real attempt at this and my first post here (if in wrong section please move).

    I have put together the black 13th and Holt etc and based the warjack, I just have to add a little more brown stuff to a couple of the joints and then I washed the miniatures with milliput to get get rid of any pitting in the metal.

    Started work on the painting-

    Black undercoat

    Then using the airbrush and vmair colours- this is just base coats before painting with the brush.

    Dark grey blue
    blue angel blue
    Light sea blue
    White





    I have fixed up the first black 13th miniature, did try nmm but wasn?t happy with the result. I have also started the second.



    Another finished, started working on the third one.

    Gosh I hate Ryan in the game lol but this is very pro! I'm thinking of getting an airbrush but I'm sorta on the fence about it. Do you use it for anything other than basecoats?

    @ Nerdforest

    Yes I do. I have done a couple of warmachine miniatures before just as a test for the airbrush. To give you an idea:

    http://www.coolminiornot.com/269688

    This was mainly airbrush with a little bit of brush work afterwards. More of a test miniature.

    Lol...people always seem to comment on my bases and they done in hardly any time at all compared to the miniature. I will put something together on how they are done and painted here as well in the future.

    Amazing job...though I think my wife will be angry at you as you have put the nail in the coffin on whether or not to get an airbrush

    Truly stunning and inspires me to do a plog of the Cygnar force I am putting together.

    So, how exactly do you 'wash with milliput?' You definitely have me intrigued
    Some people need a weekly dose of vitamin D6 to "stay sane." Me, I just need a taste of paint and I'm good.

    Green milliput works best. Once the miniature has been cleaned up but before you undercoat it you mix some milliput together and add some water to it and mix with an old stiff brush. It gives a watery/ milky fluid which you apply to the miniature and allow to dry. It can help fill in pitting and rough areas. Allow this to dry and you might have to sand it lightly with very fine emery paper. It just helps with those surfaces.

    Finished Balck 13th today....

    That is a gorgeous paint job on the Black 13th - and, has been mentioned, some very nice basing too.

    I'm looking forwards to seeing how eNemo and the Thunderhead end up - though I'm sure your work will be miles better than mine will end up being

    Some excellent looking work there, I'm particularly impressed by the flesh and facial work, absolutely top notch. Looking forward to seeing more of your stuff, and thanks for sharing.

    Those look fantastic. You're making me feel like amateur hour over here. More detail on how you painted them, including those lush looking bases, would be greatly appreciated.

    In the future, please think about the consequences of posting your work, so this doesn't happen again. Perhaps use less of whatever it is that you use to get your results?
    Thanks.

    Would you mind outlining a step-by-step process on your airbrushing the base coats? Did you just start with black undercoat and make subsequent passes through the colors to create zenithal highlights? High quality work and very much inspiring, thank you for sharing.

    Very nicely painted minis. I really like the range of colors, especially on the bases.

    It is fairly easy to explain as I am certainly not a master with an air brush. The base coat black, then followed by the air brushing Dark grey blue over the top of the black. Multiple thin coats are the key- dont try and get complete coverage in one pass and dont get worried if you can barely see a colour change, that is what you want to achieve. Next the dark angel blue is only applied from the top of the miniature and up to a 45 degree angle from the vertical. Keeping the spray light multiple light coats and I usually keep the airbrush about 15cm/3-4 inches away. At this stage you start to get the zenithal lighting effects. Then repeat with the light sea blue but restrict the number of coats of paint and once again spray only top down. Finally a very light spray of white is applied to the top of the miniature. This gives very quick shading without the need for brush work. Overall all these miniatures took less than an hour to do and make sure the miniature is dry before the next coat (a hair dryer is handy depending on where you live).

    @ Defenstrator

    I will put up some detail wip shots to show I do blending on cloaks, if that helps?

    Nice, good to see you coming over to the Warmachine side of things. Saw the name on the post, thought it looked familiar, then saw the minis and recognized your style from the OZ Painters forums. I've learned a ton from your paintjobs over the years.

    Fantastic B13, I know your style is going to carry over to the Thunderhead perfectly.

    Forget the swans, I want to see Aiyanna and Holt painted up. Any particular reason Aiyanna is waiting in the wings? She's one of my favorite miniatures so I am excited to see what you have in store.

    These are amazing - and that this only took an hour or so makes me dizzy :P

    Looking forward to seeing more, and those cloak blending shots.

    Checked out your stuff on CMON as well, your Andrea models almost looks like photos!
