    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.

    Yes, the rest of the painting is done with very dilute glazes. You can even use an airbrush for the initial basecoat as long as you keep it very thin.

    A full tutorial would be difficult as apart from the initial sketch I'm not doing anything specific. I don't have the patience for historical modelling techniques and instead rely on brush and paint control to create different effects. For these models I pretty much used blue, black, brown, white and a couple of metallics. Also, there's no proper way to do this and it's more a matter of finding a combination of techniques that work for you. You might want to check out this tutorial as it covers two different approaches. http://griffonsroostpainting.com/2017/04/24/speed-painting-two-ways/ You primaris is looking good btw.

    Thanks. It's something I've worked on for years now ever since I first saw paintings by Roman Lappat. His deathwatc tutorial was the most influential on my method for these guys. I'd known about the grisaille/dead layer technique for a while but never found a way to incorporate it into my painting due to time constraints. I had only ever seen it used to create highly detailed greyscale versions of the finished painting. But that tutorial made me realise I could use the value sketch as a quick way to incorporate texture onto the model.

    These are my gaming standard which is $50 per model.
