How I used to do it

Time to share some photos of my painting process. Everyone has his own, that is for sure, but as I do not have much time and I`m not a professional painter I need use some tricks (with inks dipping etc.

I usually start with the undercoat, primer. I have a photo of a miniature in front of my eyes (like Descent art or similar) and try to match as closely as possible base color of a miniature.

Example below shows my work in progress. In this case major color of the Drake is green so I prime it green.





From the other hand I also use black and skeleton bone (not white) for monsters and heroes as well



For High Mage Quellen I have already applied flesh skin tone.

After the base color I paint rest of the basic colors, not adding any fireworks - red, necro flesh, white, brown, metal etc.

You can see here that those monsters had blue as a base (check out the monster cards) and I have added red, white, bronze as details.







Those above were also shaded using Army Painter strong shade or AK Interactive streaking grime giving them little bit of complexity.

next post with details and basing - finishing the model

I was busy with some other things lately, like looking for a job shake so didn`t have so much time for painting and posting.

I did full Zombicide season 1 in a meantime and finishing Descent 1 and 2nd edition. I have started Flames of War miniature as well.

A lot of projects up ahead - Myth, Zombicide 2nd season, never ending Descent ;-), Battlelore 1ed., and more.

Zombicide


Descent 1ed


Space Hulk 3ed

as I promised some D1 minis. it took me some time, but was busy with other stuff.

I`m in the middle of Zombicide season 1, Relic and tons of others...so.
I would love to paint for profit, for someone, but there is little interest I guess...

I think its time to start my blog right now.
Blog about painting wargame and boardgame minis.

I have started already some time ago with wargame models...Tamiya, Italieri, Revell and stuff. Humbrol paints and brushes. It was like 20 years ago

Now I have returned to my hobby and I hope you like my collection.

Army painter is what I use. I think right now those are the best paints on the market IMHO.

If you are interested in your minis being painted - let me know.
I do paint for commission.

I started with Descent2 miniatures you can see here:






If you have any questions or comments - let me know.
