Bringing the total on 141 finished models so far. Well on my way to reach my goal of 21 miniatures per month or 252 models this year. But if I can keep up this pace of painting , I might reach the 300 models marker for the first time. Only time will tell...
So no new projects , as they were the finished ones.
On to the WIP ones...
Here are my 3 paint tables...
No progress on 1 & 3 ( 1 being the oldest en 3 the newest )
But lots of progress on paint table 2. The Goblins are no longer black , the Squigs not all White anymore & Mologs Mob a bit more colorful. Almost all models are done , just final highlighting and basing needed.
That's it for this weeks paint table , see you all next week !
Color test 2 : In the pictures above I used different primers. From left to right : Gorax white , Gorax white with White Scar highlights drybrushed , Grey Seer and Wraithbone.
And here in the same order , all in the same contrast paint :Warp Lightning. The best result for me is the second one : Gorax White drybrushed with White Scar.
Test 3 : Some Abyssal Succubi from Manic Games.
The figure on the right is just contrast paint (Flesh Tearers Red ) and the figure on the left is the next step , drybrushed with Evil Sunz Scarlet.
WARNING ! Contrast paints are not a faster nor better way to paint miniatures. It does not mean you can't win some time , but it will not save you hours. ( Some claim to paint a miniature in 4 to 6 minutes = Bull-crap ! ! ! ) It's another way of painting that will level up like any other skill or technique you use to paint miniatures.
Second : Contrast paints leave white spots in cracks and other places and it needs to be corrected to get a good result. So far I only had white spots with the red and purple contrast paint. With the purple one to be the worst ( picture below ) , but a positive side : When careful , you can't see the corrections.
On the left some Basilea troops from Mantic Games in Purple contrast paint ( Shyish purple ) , dry-brushed with Phoenician Purple and Genestealer Purple. You can see the white spots that need to be corrected.
And on the other pictures I started on a Seraphon Warrior. I tested another contrast paint on its skin : Creed Camo. Then drybrushed with Elysian green and some scale highlights with Moot Green and Warpstone Glow. The drum is also a contrast paint : Aggaros Dunes.
That's all for that subject for now...
Back to my ever growing want to paint more miniatures...
First off , I changed my paint table setting again. I moved all GW paint to the table ( including the new ones / all 66 ).
And I got a second Räskog for the rest of my paints from Armypainter , Vallejo , Scale75 and Green Stuff World.
I can hear you say , that will not increase your painting numbers. Perhaps , but it's not all I came up with...
A second idea , instead of one paint table ... I created 3 paint tables ( with protection box , warding off hairs from the doggy's )
Now I can work on 3 x the miniatures as before... and when I don't feel one paint table , I just swap them and continue painting on another one.
