    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.

    In an attempt to get in on some kill team action I had another go at painting power armour dudes. This was a pretty quick and easy painting method. Apart from a bit of edge highlighting there wasn't much that required any precision. Whether they can pass the ebay test remains to be seen.

    Great painting @Aluco and @The Bag So I've painted my first Harry Potter model. Went for a simple gw style (tutorial here) but the end result was really nice. It always surprises me how well my models look when painted this way and I really should use it more often. This was a Gen Con exclusive that was widely available on ebay but it looks like I've already picked up a commission for the full set

    Only available in the UK and Ireland which is a real shame. I still have the Battle Games in Middle Earth magazines which got me back into the hobby many years ago. The hobby content in them was of a high quality especially the scenery. The complexity built up over the issues and towards the end the guides covered really impressive pieces of scenery.

    @feltmonkey yes the Lobo models are from the batman game. I had no idea he was part of the same universe but there you go. Dragon lady tutorial is done https://opponenttheory.com/blog/2018/8/28/dragon-lady-painting-tutorial This was a real pain in the ass to do and you can probably tell I lost interest half way through but hopefully it's of some help to someone out there. But looking at what's going on over at gw I think for future tutorials I'll be returning to an old favourite.

    Thanks. I was a little nervous about doing it. So much so I put on my normal glasses instead of my reading ones. I've also painted a couple of Lobos.

    I've made changes to my painting setup (I bought a bigger desk) so making tutorials is not so much of a pain in the ass. I also bought some new lights which are very bright and yet the images a actually worse as I haven't figured out the optimal camera settings. The first tutorials I've done are for the injustice team Black Orchid, Deadman, and Swamp Thing.

    That rogue trader set will be hard to resist.
