Nice work indeed. Love the soot, is that done with pigments or paints?

Thank you! 

 

Soot, Dust on lower shields/feet, and the blue glows are all done with weathering pigments.  I especially love the pigments because you can easily remove them if you aren't a fan of the effect. (as long as you don't fix them in place)

How would you go about fixing them in place greggles? I'm a pigment virgin.

These guys continue to look brilliant. Did I already comment on how into the big orky faces on them?

Hey Garslag!

 

Thanks so much!  I got a giant bin of mixed jaws and faces, try to come up with some good ones!  I'm very happy with how this guy came out.  The grot knight used to be my favorite!  

 

To fix pigment, there is a few different ways.

 

1) Most reliable: Pigment fixer.  You can purchase a pigment fixer from Secret weapon, or the company that sold you the pigments (I use SW).

2) Have to get careful: Alcohol.  Touching the pigment with alcohol will lock it into place, just make sure to just allow the capillary action to let the alcohol flow, otherwise the paint will strip!

3) Very unreliable: Using a varnish from a distance.  (Generally just blows the pigments around).

 

I generally don't fix my pigments. If they wear off, I just add some more pigment later.  These aren't comp pieces, so it doesn't matter if something isn't 100% perfect. I  do them cause I think they look cool as !$&)! on the table :)

I've often thought about trying pigments. You and others get frankly amazing results from them. However due to some as-yet-unprobed psychological trauma, I really need to have an end point where I never have to touch them again. I've never heard pigment fixer mentioned before but it sounds worth looking into.

I have the same thing.  This knight is done.  I immediately saw something that needed to be done, nope, done.  I just consider pigments the final step.  Touchups are just something you have to do anyway when you play with models.  Things get chipped/damaged through constant play.  It's why so many magnets are on my stuff!

 

If you do the pigments, i highly suggest getting the entire pigment pack at once.  You will NEVER need more.

They really are a godsend with effects and such.  I didn't even think of using them for the glow until this guy.  Now I'm probably going to have some fun adding glow effects to everything, since I can easily adjust and blend it with the pigment. (without worrying about screwing up the model, which is always my biggest handicap).  Like right now, I'm going to have to cut a tank off the gun arm to fit the ammo drum on, and I just can't do it yet....

Thank you Grimdreg!  I was happy with the face paint.  Came out pretty good for just some blue pigment!

Thanks for the pigment tips! Particularly about fixing, that's always been a concern for me since I like to vanish my models fairly heavily to reduce damage from playing. Sounds like I could get away with fixer or alcohol, followed by a careful coat of airbrush varnish?

Would advise a little bit of caution - I have some 'sci-fi' metallic pigments I got from MIG which include a fantastic steel one, wipe it over something worn and it looks superb.

 

DO NOT GO ANYWHERE NEAR IT WITH VARNISH AFTER YOU'VE APPLIED IT - IT GOES BRIGHT BLUE.

 

Suggest trying it on something disposable (or, at least re-primable) to make sure that the colour doesn't do anything wierd :bang

Agree with Badfang. Always test first! As I said earlier, I don't generally bother fixing the pigments, as they are beyond a joke to reapply (takes mere seconds).  It's literary like applying makeup to a model.

Looks good, kinda feels like it needs checks and dags or something to give it more contrast. Impressive build all the same!

And why? Because we sought answers to questions that an Ork wouldn't even bother to ask.
We see a culture that is strong and despise it as crude.

I tested a set of white checks on the shoulder, didn't like how it turned out, so scrapped the idea.  I could always redo a shoulder later and try doing the checks earlier in the process so it chips naturally with the rest of the paint.  There is a slew of checks on the gattling gun, but not very obvious, def could use more!!!!  Appreciate the feedback, helps me become a better painter!
