Wizard's Weekly Paint

Post by wizardv12222 » Mon Jan 07, 2013 9:11 pm

Ok, following the duck, I'm moving to a weekly update and this year I'm trying to get something painted or touched with paint almost every week.

To start off, here are pics of my finished land raider, done in a good tabletop quality.

And as it is magnetized here is a pic with the hurricane bolters.

Decided to work on my second batch of minis, so guess I'm getting a jump on week 2? I have a 70% painted furioso that I decided needed to be finished and I have to say... wow, my painting must have improved, because I want to strip that dude down to nothing and start from scratch....

But I'm going to see if I can do enough detail work to bring it up the same standard as the LR I just finished.

That is a good feeling. I love seeing improvement, it makes me want to paint that much more

Well I battled through it and did a bunch of touch ups (more than I was expecting)

here is a quick pic while it is drying. This is my BA furioso that is fully magnetized.
Image

Dante is there also, because I had to do an arm replacement on him after he tried to land on my basement floor and went in many many pieces :(

I'll take some better pics later after the paint has had some more time to dry.

As promised here are some better pictures of the furioso with all his parts.

D. company dread, with blood talons. melta and storm bolter

Image

Furioso, front but same weapons as before
Image

Furioso, with magna-grapple, blood fists, and flamer
Image

Furioso with frag cannon
Image

And finally Libby Dred

And I'm done painting now until next weekend when I can make a run to get new brushes, 1.5 hour drive to the nearest hobby store :(
So next week will probably work on this month's terrain group build.

Worked on some terrain this week, so far built the build for the group build 41. Don't want to double post so head over there for pictures. I did get some new brushes, but today I feel like terrain, so I'll probably do some more of it. Must be Terrainaholic's build-a-thon he is doing this weekend.

Feel free to post your stuff from other threads in here, or at least a link ;)

Great work so far, love the magnetization. I have a bad track record with it, for instance I magnetized both my Nurgle and Death Guard Dread...with opposite polarization. So much for weapon swaps!

The details on your paint look great, but the big planes of red could use some definition. The easier thing is just a watered down wash, be careful how you spread it with your brush so it doesn't leave streaks.

Thanks for the tip Dez, vehicles are not my strong suit, mainly for the large open areas, I think with the next one I paint I'll try some different washes and see what works.

On the magnetization, in order to keep the polarization straight I have a little piece of straight scrap sprue that I have a magnet glued on each end (one for each pole obviously), that little tool has saved my bacon many times ;)

This week decided my painting part of the hobby is to paint on Lemartes, a death company guy and a sang priest, here is a pic after priming and a base coat on lemartes.

did some more painting tonight on my trio, and started to touch up on my storm raven base. The first one I did fell apart, let that be a lesson, never get clear tacky glue, doesn't bond well to plastic!

Well I finished the week by finishing up Lemartes. The base needs work, but I'm holding off on it until I can decide how I want to do it.
