Final Painting

by on May.23, 2012, under Gaming, General News, Ramblings, Warmachines/Hordes

So I forgot to post this up.. I finished the bolt thrower, if you look close at the picture, it’s not painted the best in the world.. but for my first paint.. I think I did right well..

I’ve also since done another model.. but have yet to take a picture…. she was a little bit easier to paint, but harder to glue.. imagine that..

I’m waiting and hoping that I get the Warmachines starter set for my birthday.. July can’t come fast enough!!

Day 2.5, Some painting

by on May.06, 2012, under Gaming, General News, Ramblings, Warmachines/Hordes

Okay.. just before I show everyone these pictures, please note.. I never ever claimed to be a master painter..

So .. Yeah.. I tried my best, here is the Beastie with it’s skin base coat and getting ready for the armor.. it’s got a black base coat.. get to work on the armor tomorrow, as well as some metal stuff..

This is going to be an exsercise in learning how to paint.. I wish there were more comprehensive painting tutorials for these guys like there is for the Citadel guys.. *sighs* .. oh well.. we can only do our best right?

Day 2, Model Building

by on May.06, 2012, under Gaming, General News, Ramblings, Warmachines/Hordes

Well here we go.. Day 2.. I had this nice little glued together mini all ready for priming..

I took my little guy out to the garage, got me a cardboard box to use as a spray table and everything.. As I was spraying the little guy, I bumped the box.. stupidly I had placed the box on top of another for added height (I couldn’t be bothered to go and get my paint spinner or saw horses for stability) .. what happened.. the mini fell…

OH CRAP, I yell at myself (well you get the idea).. so I go about to picking up the wet mini, in the 5 pieces it returned to after hitting the cement floor when I noticed.. even worse.. it fell in a pile of leaves and hair..

So low and behold I spend the next 45 minutes scraping and cleaning the wet paint and getting all the gunk off the model.. went to re-glue all the pieces that fell.. at this time I was a little ticked off.. so I said.. this guy is going to be unique and I re-glued the head spikes at a wonky angle.,… just cause I thought it looked cool..

So here is my mini, re-glued at some wonky angles and primed totally.. now comes the skin.. that will be fun.. (maybe).. here’s hoping I can mix the paint in the right ratios.. the painting part should be easy.. paint the skin.. 🙂
