    The Miniatures Appreciation Thread

    Privateer press have a lot of videos mostly covering specific techniques https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLOHvZQUaO4kfNV6-gObM3sPXisSpcphnE Paint on plastic is mostly gunpla with the occasional gw model but he has a very interesting style https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC9UUZIFvHRQPfDoCP-bTB7A Scale model workshop covers historical model kits. The guy is very knowledgeable, has incredible modelling skills and makes high quality videos. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC9UUZIFvHRQPfDoCP-bTB7A But my favourite background painting videos are the old Romain tutorials on beastofwar. I even have my own playlist https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLGDHEoEYgxDweif2myg-CyFFJWdSb2-Jk

    That's great news @Pelekophoros

    The patreon has been going since January and so far I counted 28 videos which cover 10 or so different models. The production values aren't very good and a lot of the videos are just streams but you get to see the entire process. I have found his videos a great help primarily because of how simple his method is. It's not that I can't do the advanced techniques, but trying to wet blend for eight hours a day is hard going. Plus, it's very scaleable so can be used for simple gaming standard not just Sergio's god tier competition standard.

    The first video for this tutorial has been posted and I have to say Duncan would lose his fucking shit if he saw how thick the paints for the basecoats were.

    Well done on getting second and a wonderful looking entry.

    It's from Scale75's fallen frontier setting. I picked up four of these busts from their kickstarter.

    Here's a bust I painted for myself. Had a lot of fun with this so I'm not too concerned about the parts that aren't quite right.

    I found this video helpful for photographing with white or black backgrounds. I would still prefer grey but then I have problems with colour balance.

    I see it as a business expense and it's only slightly more than an issue of white dwarf and a lot more useful to me. I'm even thinking of doing the 1 hour video chat pledge once I have some work. Here are my dwarf repaints.

    From patreon. It's expensive once you consider the annual cost which is why I didn't sign up at the beginning of the year but I'd say it's been worth it given the improvements I've seen after just one week. His basic technique which he calls capibases is nothing new (basecoat dark colour and paint increasingly lighter colours to a reduced area) but seeing one of the best painters use this technique is very useful. The big takeaway has been not to worry about blending and focus on contrast and details. At this scale blending isn't that important outside of display or competition painting and given how little time I can spend on each model it isn't worth bothering with.

    I repainted the shadespire orcs, applying some of the ideas from Sergio Calvo's videos. Out of the many different painting methods I've tried this is my definitely my favourite.

    I managed to reduce my own unpainted pile, finishing off this little project, the Danger 5 set from crooked dice

    Sorry about your dad Joe. @The Hierophant For glazes I wouldn't bother with any medium as lots of water s all you need. The best demonstration on glazing I've seen is on Jeremie Bonamant Teboul's dvd but for a basic idea this video is quite good But really, the shift over the years, at least at the top level and in my own painting, has been away from thin layers/glazing and towards using thick paint. I've been watching Sergio Calvo's videos on patreon and he uses a very simple technique of layering up from a dark basecolour. It's pretty easy and surprisingly quick to paint this way. I also like how easy it is to change the overall quality of the finish by varying the number of intermediary colours.
