Brookgrim's Weekly Paint

Post by Brookgrim » Mon May 18, 2015 2:31 pm

Hi everyone, first post! I'm new to miniature gaming and painting, started about a year ago with the dark vengeance starter set. After painting up the dark angels I bought some Eldar kits and began painting them as I'm most fond of elves.

Here are some pictures (I need to get some better lighting equipment) of my work thus far.

I have more pictures here brookgrim.imgur.com

I'm always trying to improve my painting with every new model I paint, CC is welcome!

My current project is the new Eldar jetbikes. I'll try to post some progress pics soon.

Beautiful color blending! And nice work on all the little gems on the Eldar (my friend who plays Eldar complains constantly about all the gems). I look forward to seeing more of your stuff!

That's one heck of a first post! Way to come out the gate charging! Seriously, awesome work - I love the subtle details like the blending on the Farseer's fingertips.

Thanks for the warm welcome and kind replies!

Here is the current state of the jetbikes

Still have a good amount of edge highlighting left to do as well as the metallics, and the Saim Hann black stripes/serpent. Then onto the riders and weapons which are magnetized. I've been regretting assembling the bike in full before painting, sub assemblies would have made it much easier.

What are your favorite products for filling in gaps? I'm thinking liquid greenstuff might have been the ticket for small gaps between mold halves on this model.

You're really doing crisp and clean paint jobs!

I would have liked to see a bit of drybrushing on your farseers base to make the stones look a bit more weathered! On the other hand I really like the ,,green parts" between the stones. It makes the whole base so much more lively and realistic looking!
