Painting Guide on Faces and Skin

I done another YouTube, but the summary for great skin is here:Ceramite WiteWash with Reiklnd FleshshadeHighlight with flesh tone of choiceFor eyes and detailed faces, remember to not be afraid about going back and fixing any mistakes with your highlight colour (with a demonstration in the video).As a blog reader only tip (because you guys are awesome), when using your contrast paints instead of the above method, make sure you always highlight in a traditional way. This will let you clean up any detailing errors without having to do the whole section again.Thanks for reading.If you liked what you saw, and you want to help out, please leave a comment.

Getting back in the saddle, and a YouTube

Reports of my death have only been slightly exaggerated...The last year was very difficult in terms of school life, and if anyone is a teacher you'll probably know why. The Teacher's Pension Scheme issues, schools in the UK dropping off the registered charity status and such had people scrabbling around trying to keep heir jobs... yeah, it wasn't fun.Not that it affected my job security, being a Housemaster, Physics teacher, Duke of Edinburgh Coordinator, Warhammer coach, and general nerd teacher. In fact, I got promoted! But still, it was very busy.Abyway, I'm looking to get back into blogging, and so I'm starting off with a mild ramble about Space Wolves and Aggressors. Enjoy!Thanks for reading.If you liked what you saw, and you want to help out, please leave a comment.

Adeptus Titanicus - The Misericordia

Only know pict image of the Misericordia, captured by the Baneblade Son of Iron at Kazani bridge, Katara, M41.With BOYL fast descending on me, I finally finished work my titan for the epic clash on Saturday morning. This is my first painted epic miniature and something of a bucket list miniature for me. I've long wanted to paint a chaos titan. Now of course I want to paint another. In any case, I dug into my hoard of titan bits and constructed the Iron Skulls legion titan, The Misericordia.It's been many, many years since I played epic, and I had forgotten much of the rules. After some consultation with my epic expert peeps I went for some reasonable guns and lots of close combat fun. The trident in particular seemed too entertaining not to take. There are several chaos titan heads, and this skull-faced one was my first choice for a Khornate titan.I tried to future-proof this titan a little, so all the weapons are magnetized. After some early insanity I recessed many of the magnets (Magnets do not love paint)

These were all painted to level 4 quality.

GMG Reviews – Warhammer 40000 Codex: Chaos Knights

It’s time for another GMG Review! Today we take a look at the latest Codex for 40k, the Chaos Knights. This book expands on the seleciton from Chapter Approved 2018 with new Strategems, Relics, Dreadblades and Alignment abilities with the Infernal and Iconoclast Houses. House Metallum is off the rails and has become an Infernal Household! Joined by a small force of Night Lords, they take on the Aeldari in a 1750pt Matched Play game. NOTES: We made a couple mistakes during the game. The Infernal buff to guns only applies to a single gun per round on a Knight. It wasn’t super relevant but I might have mixed that up on an additional gun once or twice. The Pyrothrone also only causes an auto-explode if you die from a Perils. I did make an example roll however and did pop a six to mention it does limit the exploding size, so it was exploding regardless as I did make a roll; we just messed up why it exploded.

40k Dark Angel Ravenwing Landspeeder Typhoon

Reinforcement is on the way! 40k Dark Angel Ravenwing Landspeeder Typhoon just sped past! I have never painted a 40k Landspeeder before, so when I got this project then, there’s definitely excitement in it, ha ha! The challenge of this I guess its the black colour of the Ravenwing design. Black is one of the tough colour to paint, though its just black. The trick usually revolves around giving the black subtle shades of grey to create the feel of highlight and shadows. For this 40k Dark Angel Ravenwing Landspeeder Typhoon, I painted it airbrushing subtle shades of grey on the near edges and high point of the Landspeeder. Try to imagine the high points as how and where would the light lands on that surface. Usually I observed black things around me in day to day, and take note of the shades of highlights and shadows on the black objects.

40k Dark Angel Stormraven

Another 40k transport, this time its the Dark Angel Stormraven which I painted a while back. Come to think of it, I have already painted a total of 3 Stormravens already. The 4th one will be my own, or will it be? Ha ha! Though I have painted a few Stormravens, I still have the issue that its fuselage is not long enough. The Stormraven was painted with the usual air brush techniques and then touched up and outline with brushes. The weapon options were fully magnetized as requested by client. The Dark Angel definitely has a new ride now, darkness from the sky… sound like a good new Dark Angel tactline, ha ha!
