  1. It's nowhere near that picky. https://warhammer40k.fandom.com/wiki/Omophagea hence "flesh tearers" and not "brain munchers"
  2. @The Bag thanks for that, wasn't too far off it looks great.. ive been adding a muted violet ink over my base golds on the chaos knight ive been working on recently its neat. yeah Viking gold has a lovely reddish tone to it and i find it the closest to decayed metal. dwarven is the "pure gold" as far as im concerned. and i very very rarely use Elven Gold. it seperates far too quickly and is too green for my tastes. What i have been doing lately working with gold, is doing my gold make up like above, then breaking out the really silvery gold Darkstar Molten Metal golds for final shine highlights because they're far superior in reflective shine than the scalecolours. the Darkstars are dreadful for coverage though. can highly recommend "darkstar imperial gold" and "darkstar Fine gold" for bright shiny shizzle
  3. the trim on The Bag's lovely giant Abaddon looks to be a dark metal base, possibly washed, then different metal brightnessess stippled on top. you can layer this up and up and up. layers of metal, a nice wash for the tone you're wanting, then more stipple, the wash will deaden the metal, the stipples of metal will add that lovely beaten war worn look. when i generally do this, i start with a Scale75 Decayed metal, then stipple / dry apply some scale75 Viking Gold, then wash, then more viking gold stipples and then start to add in some Vallejo Metal Color chrome in little bits as you build the colour up. Not trying to steal The Bag's thunder i just find it interesting disecting a technique then hearing how it's actually been done
  4. base acrylic work. then a lot of enamels. I rarely use oils when streaming just due to the slightly longer dry time and the more prep work than enamels for pretty much the same effect. infact i'd go as far as saying for the work i do in vehicles and machinery, enamels are often far superior with exactly the same properties of oils - for general paint work that is. If we're talking OPR techniques then having that viscosity and control of oil is undoubtedly a great boon.
  5. I painted a mini the other week. Don't think i posted it here though.
  6. @erhgiez which part? There's also the part where they can eat the flesh of their victims and absorb their memories too i think. the bio enhancements of the space marines are largely fucking stupid.
  7. i dont magnetise the waist. i just glue. That photo is just showing the separate parts. But a lot of people magnetise the waist on a knight so they can transport them easier.
  8. @erhgiez Also i stream 3 nights a week, Fri, Sat, Sun from 8pm UK time. I use a mixed media approach, so acrylics, enamels, oils and pigments. i do a lot of vehicles and a few big monsters. happy to take questions on stream. http://twitch.tv/soulwaystudios This week it's Fri - 1:24 scale Austin Mini Weathering. Sat: 40k Chaos Imperial Knight. and Sunday Bloodbowl Lizardmen/Tyranid Swarmlord depending on how i feel!
  9. runs amazing with a steam controller added through steam and launched in big picture mode too
  10. Oh and sorry for all the post spam, but i just glued my 10x1 magnets flush on the arms. you never notice it, they're never wobbly, and all you need to do, is cut off the nubs on the shoulders, flie it smooth, glue a 10x1 margnet on, then sand the other side flat on the lower arm, and glue the other magnet on there. none of the faffing around hollowing stuff and making magnet plugs etc. you literally don't notice when weatehred and painted. Here's mine at 1000x zoom
  11. infact the meltacannon / las impulsor shield plate shows you how i got around the moutable front elements. a little plasticard square
  12. I did them all on this commission. It's a pain in the arse. Just becuase the amount of work is staggering. It never ends. with a bit of greenstuff or milliput and a bunch of magnets you can pretty much do everything with the realistic exception of one of the cable bundles on the battle canon arm. But it's a minor thing.
  13. In Discovery's future any level of bullshit is possible deKay
  14. no. none of them from Discovery. I'd give an actual testicle for someone with a brain to buy Star Trek, and officially declare Discovery and Picard (plus any discovery shit in the MMO) as officially non-cannon. Pretend it didnt happen.
