Hey gang,

I've been throwing around the idea of doing a video segment similar to Dave's "Ask a Wargamer" that's specifically about the painting and modelling aspect of the hobby, tentatively called "Ask a Warpainter" because I'm feeling very uncreative at this moment.

Here's the conundrum... I need painting/modelling related questions! So on that note, Ask me something! Be as specific or as vague as you want to be.

There's no guarantee I'll answer each question that comes up, or answer your question *exactly* as you worded it - I may tweak them a little to make advise I give more generally useful etc.

Oh and please, don't ask *really* specific things like "How do I paint an Ultramarines Terminator Librarian?" - that's a complete tutorial in itself and kind of beyond the scope of this video :)

Cheers,
Mike

mmm how about some different examples of different techniques? like how do you do a glaze (I really don't know what it is :P), how to do layering and that kind of things

I'd really love to see that :D

Yeah, it's got a lot of great tips. I just re-read it a few days ago.

Maybe not really questions, just do more hands on guides. Didn't you do a video about wet blending?

So is this going to be a one time video or a compilation over a series of weeks/months? Just curious...

What brush strokes are used when feathering? Basically how the brush is laid against the mini once the paint is applied and the brush is cleaned off. I have never found any pics or tutoriols that give a good view of the actual strokes used to 'feather' the colors together.

How to do simple battle damage using washes and stippling? I feel this is a very easy thing to do but it seems a lot of people don't realize how easy it really is!

How to use a color wheel and apply it to a miniature?

...Blue

I have! :twisted:
But it seems something that is lacking in the majority of minis I see from others across the web. Theres always that "What should my third color be" question!

Shouldn't you be on a plane over the pacific right now?

A little deviation from the painting questions, as you say you want to do modeling as well in your initial post, how about an indepth *insert color here* stuff guide video?
