No you won’t be donning a pair of them, instead you’ll be learning to paint using the new Shading set from Games Workshop. This is number three in a series of new painting tutorials!
Short and to the point, for decent tabletop results… Display painting takes more care, of course.
I really love this painting tutorials, fast and easy to understand, i know they focus on citadel paints only but the techniques are valid for any other paints.
Not as entertaining as Romain’s tutorials. That’s a few minutes of my life I won’t get back.
Cool, should ensure a fresh batch of totally ruined, I mean pro painted minis on ebay soon.
There’s something that reminds me of Alan Partridge in the presentation style… Nice video tho!
Sooo, in short it’s a low gloss wash or ink? Isn’t this a form or reinventing the wheel for GW? GW used to have washes and inks in their product range, however the items were removed as they were “too difficult to use.” -Quote from the red shirt’s in Australia.
Seriously though do other painters out there use these shades/washes at step 2? I normally base coat, Dry brush, high light, then apply wash or ink. I find the wash helps to blend the colour transitions of the previous stages, hence the reasoning behind applying it later in the process.
Would be interested in the techniques used by others here.
I occasionally use it as a form of base coat, so do pre shading with an airbrush, then apply a wash all over before going in with the details, worked really well with my Legion of Everblight
Well, I don’t know… I’ve been known to do highlights and shading alternately on various areas, starting with whatever makes the most sense at the time depending on the project. “Step 3″ is usually the third coat for my basecoat. I have dozens of “steps” for each miniature, really. Not the same techniques, not the same purpose either !
