Oh so cool! I'm so glad to see them all assembled. Now the grueling part, haha, I mean fun part. Will be waiting, trying to paint too, on your progress.

BTW, sad your selling them but understand, I've done the same thing for the same reason but replacing them, great. I've had 3 dark elf armies and now working on the 4th. I've had 4 sisters of battle armies and will be getting a 5th. Don't even get me started on orcs, vampire counts and the many others. But now I've slowed down, it's a good thing but then the new stuff comes out and its, EEEKK! Bug eyed and figuring out what to rid of to afford the new. Great addiction tho!

Thanks Dread! I think after the first few attempts to start up armies that caught my fancy, I now know that I'm not interested in every new thing that comes out there. There are still a few armies outside of aelves that I'd like to take up sometime, but right now I have enough to keep my occupied and satisfied. I was a bit saddened to sell off my stormcast, goblins, and the little slaanesh that I had, but having the armies that I've always wanted makes me much happier, haha!

Got nothing more to sell off for new stuff anymore though :P. Right now I'm just waiting for the new General's Handbook, Sylvaneth Battletome and related items, and a few of the contrast paints.

I actually was very excited to paint sylvaneth with the contrast paints, but after some thought... I really want to give it some extra attention rather than settle for battle ready.

I've decided on the Heartwood Glade for my color scheme. Cannot wait to finally get the rest of my stuff in and start painting!

EDIT: Actually, still haven't decided on my paint scheme yet... I want to do something different than the GW Schemes. I'll have to look at the paints I have and see what works. Also need to see more of these contrast paints before I decide to use them or not. Want to see the more advanced techniques they can be used for.

HERESY!! ;)

Its good to let a favourite army to take ROOT, you will have plenty of time to BRANCH out anyway. It will stop you going BARKing mad from having paint yet another pointy ear... /dad_jokes

From what I've seen so far the contrast paints are to let you do the base colour and wash all in one go as a one thick coat. It will be interesting to see if anyone finds another use for them though. I'll be interested to see how they work with big transistions, like on a long cloak.

Well, more information about the contrast paints has come up form Games Workshop. I believe I am now more interested in ever. When these go on preorder, I'll be investing in them!

Thanks for the info, Mage, I appreciate it!

Another question: So, I already have some Akhelians that are primed and base coated. Would it be an issue to spray another coat of primer over them?

The two primers should stick just fine. You'll just have an extra layer of paint, so keep it as thin as you can. 


I'm assuming you want to put on a light primer. One trick I've seen with speed painters, is to spray a dark primer, then a second light primer from above, so most of the shading is done.

Hi Mage,

Well the thing is that the new contrast paints require these two new spray primers, which can as also be touched up with their base variants. It's in the new warhammer community article about contrast paints.

Now that I think about it, the new Contrast Primer is also coming in base paint variants... Don't need to prime them again, just need to add another layer of paint I think!

EDIT:

So, a good friend of mine here in Nashville texted me some cool stuff that he's working on. I think it's really cool what he achieved, and asked him if I could share it here on the blog.

Here is my friend Horacio's Daughters of Khaine WIP!





EDIT #2:

So, here is what's on my table at the moment!

The new contrast primers are simply light colours, as the contrast paints are translucent. You can just put a light paint over them instead of the primer, so yeah give that airbrush a work out :)

The shark is looking great mate, the skin is looking very smooth.

Thanks for the compliment, Mage! I actually gave the Citadel Air paints a try with a brush. I see now that they really are meant for airbrushes. You can get some of the colors to work with a brush, but you have to apply in really thin layers. I guess that's something I should be practicing anyway, so I went ahead and applied several thin coats over the course of painting.

Seems like it worked ;D.

I have not tried the Citadel Air paints, but the Vallejo Air White is fantastic for doing thin white lines with a brush. You can also use the metallic air colours like a wash on metals, especially if you want more of a matte finish rather than a glossy oil.

Great to know, Mage! I remember giving the Vallejo Air range a try several years ago, but I never really got back into it since then. How do you find the Vallejo Air compared to the Vallejo Game Air range? And that's a question for anyone who would like to answer :). Do you think I should look into those ranges at all?

Im, well, I'm speechless. The colors, the overall texture, just wow! You just get better and better. Great job.

Thanks, Dread! Glad you think I'm improving! I'm super stoked about how this one came out lol. Glad that you like it. ;D

EDIT:

So, here's my current Sylvaneth force:



So, what's crossed off of my list?

20 Tree Revenants
12 Dryads
1 Treelord Ancient
2 Arch Revenants
1 Branchwych
6 Kurnoth Hunters with Scythes

What's on the build next list?

1 Treelord Ancient
1 Treelord
1 Branchwych
20 Dryads
And that's it until the Battletome drops!

That Allopex is drop dead gorgeous Myen'Tal. I really like the colour scheme and your brush work has improved a lot as well, leading to a really clean finish.

Lovely mate, I really like how your Idoneth are shaping up.

Thanks, Loosh! That means a lot to me ;D! I'm glad everyone thinks I'm getting better! I'll probably be taking a break until the contrast paints come out. I think I'll be putting the Deepkin on hold for the moment and paint some Sylvaneth when the contrast is available.

We'll see.

How do you find the Vallejo Air compared to the Vallejo Game Air range? And that's a question for anyone who would like to answer :). Do you think I should look into those ranges at all?

I was going off memory for the name of the paint range, I've only tried Vallejo Model Air range and not that many colours. Most of my Vallejo paints are from their model series rather than their game series, but I don't see much difference between them.

What I have noticed is that Vallejo paint colours separate far more often than citadel's (normal paint not the Air paints). Just means they need more shaking before use. There is a colour conversion chart, but to be honest its hit and miss, for example, "Cavalry Brown" in model colour is meant to be close to "Wazdakka Red" in GW, but it is actually very close to "Martian Ironearth", which is no where near Wazdakka. I now take the empty GW pot with me to double check.


The Allopex looks awesome. I really like the Elve's skin tone and the colour for the frame the gunner is standing on is brilliant.

Thanks, Mage, I appreciate the feedback and the compliment! It looks like everyone loved the shark, which I'm really stoked about! 

I'll probably be taking a break until Contrast comes out. That's for painting though. Will remain assembling what I have. Which is like two Melusai boxes and 4 more Dryads.

The Start Collecting Box I received in a trade has not shown up yet. My good friend who bought the box will wait one more day before calling Ebay about it.

So that is unfortunately on hold. I guess in the meantime I'll get more hobby supplies... brushes, brush cleaner, etc... my most used brushes are about shot lol.

Mwahahaha! That's great. Old brushes are great for sure. I've got many that go thru it all from painting, dry brush, putting glue on bases to being a paint stir. Everything in between if I missed anything. Hahaha! Finished my laugh, no black bases.
