    Good Evening ladies and gentlemen

    Welcome to What are you painting now or WAYPN for short.

    So what is WAYPN?
    WAYPN is a community group for the Beasts of War, we show off what we are paint now at any stage of the paint job from beginning to end, just so long as it’s what your painting now! The reason for this one of two rules in this thread is because a lot of people who are new to painting only see the end result, and that is intimidating. Everything take time and effort, and being able to see how much work some of these people put into these models maybe just maybe you will paint a little more. I mentioned a rule there the second rule which is more just a guide, is be good. The internet is often a harsh place, people will say things they don’t mean just to a rise of you. Here we stay positive because we want everyone here from eight year old to the eighteen year old to the eighty year old, from novice, to veteran to master. It doesn’t matter who you are or what you want to achieve with your painting. That’s it.
    So what should you do? Keep your brushes wet and keep painting and post that’s it.

    Nothing Starts finished!

    I saw a different WAYPN should I post there?
    Well this is the fourth incarnation of WAYPN the first two WAYPN threads died an unnatural death, they grew so huge that they had to be closed down due to their massive size which was putting a strain on the servers. It is kind of perverse pride I have in that, we made such a massive thread that it had to get shut down, and trust me if the admin could have they would have kept them running they love these threads as much as we do.

    But I can’t-
    No you can, Trust me! You can achieve whatever your goal is. You want to paint your first model we have your back! We will tell you where to go what you need, and who to listen to. You want to learn how to dry brush, come in here and say it people will help and we will give advice, encouragement, and critique. You want build table wide diorama you can do! We will help you, we will help you with what material you might want to look into, cheaper alternatives, or even new podcasts to have in the background while you work. You want to win a golden demon, well, you have set yourself a high goal, but we will help you, in any way we can.

    What is my goal?!
    I have always had one goal here. Let’s make a great community, now I have been away for a little while because I am a lazy git (not really I have been working on my secret project). However! I have been noticing the threads have been slowing down here a bit and we aren’t see as many as the old faces or the new ones. So…

    Can you help me?
    My goal for this thread as it is a three month thread, so we never actually cause the problems for the site but my goal is to get to 1,000 posts before that. I can’t do it by myself, but I can do my part, I am going to upload weekly video reviews and not slack off, I am going to share with you my project for this three months start to finish, and I am going to get, but I can only do it with your help. We aren’t going to get there with ‘hi how you going?’ posts, only three things, hobby preparation/process, finished hobby be it paint jobs, terrain, or anything else, and feedback on those.
    I know you can do it, I am count on you guys.

    Nothing starts finished.

    Good day WAYPN!

    Well this has been a while but I have not been too lazy since the start of the year.

    In February I started the Cadians….. and I finished the whole platoon (3 squads + the command Squad) in may I believe…. but then got lazy about taking the pictures. I wanted first to make a “bang” project finished impression but I think it would have been better if I posted the updates regularly.

    Anyway without further due!
    Cadia Stands!

    Here is my small community blog:

    My Kaplan Tactical Services (for Infinity) are getting some colors.
    The models are converted from Mantic Corporation Marines with some 40K Tau and Ork parts added.

    Onwards, to a 1.000 posts!

    I’ve finished painting the last colour of cloth. Given the base colour was black, I’ve also painted Deathwalkers heair, and Deny2′s stockings. I painted the accessable eyes of Deathwalker and put 2 colours of in in the tubine thingy of Deny’s halberd too. This finishes off 3 more Stitch Thralls. Next up, the stitching on the front of the Necrosurgeons, and all gold. That should mostly finish everything, except a few bits of detail, and the bases.

    More WIP on the base for the orc warlord before I start the main guy himself. More pics in my thread.

    Bit more done today. Need to varnish them yet

  • Avatar Image janus1004683p said 8 months, 1 week ago:

    @lawnor – Those are turning more and more spooky for each update. I especially like the little girl, very “japanese horror movie” feel to her…

    As I mentioned in my last post I have been eager to try painting some Age of Sigmar, so I started two Liberators today. After a black basecoat (with airbrush) I intended to basecoat them with Vallejo Air Gunmetall… and that was a pain! Clogging the airbrush, coarse pigments all over the place even when trying to dilute it quite some. Picture two below is the result and you can see that it looks rather iffy, to be honest. However, said and done, I decided to push on and drybrush on some more silvery paints (pic three and four). Rather significant improvement, so now I am at least content again. The fifth and last pic is when I have started with the purple. The idea is to use a limited palette, silver+purple as main colours. Gold to denote higher ranks, and the usual parchment/leather for such parts…. but overall a quite restrained approach.

    ..and as a bonus I have also started to airbrush some Iberian horses (five of them). I have always been a bit afraid of painting horses, so this will be a fun challenge. More on that later, I am sure. :-)

    It’s almost 10pm on my last day of holiday and I think I’ve put the last of the paint on the last model of this project. 31 models done, except for the bases. Heres some examples of the latest progress. I’m going to base with GW Agrellan badland so I hope to apply that before I go to sleep, so I can finish them all off after work tomorrow and upload some final pictures then. The I can move on to the next stage of my Cryx blitzing. 12 light warjacks I think.

    EDIT: It’s now 11.30pm, I need to eat something and have a shower and sleep, but I’ve painted the textured paint on all the bases.

    Good Evening ladies and gentlemen

    Thanks for joining me on the New WAYPN Q3! So I did a little calculation 1,000/90=11.1r

    Remember how I said that nothing starts finished, well the thing is that is step one in achieving your goals. The second step is a very simple one, you make a goal, and then break that big goal down into little ones. So how can we make sure that we get to 1,000 posts within three months?

    Simple, we need to have 11 or 12 posts a day. That seems achievable, so I am going to set us a goal, something a little beyond that! Let’s see if we can achieve it together! I really want you guys to help push this with me and let’s get to 100 posts with in the first week! I know that we can do it together! I am going to message a few people and see if we can hit this milestone together!

    In the meantime here is the first update to the board for the Armies on Parade!

    And here is a model for scale

    And there is how they will be set up on the bottom board

    Alright guys day one has past and we were only two shy of the 11.1r we needed, so let’s make it so that today we reach, 28! Because that is the pace we need to make 100 in the first week 14 per day we can do it together I am sure of it!

    Only 14 one post from 14 different people and we make it come and join us! Hell let’s see if we can get the crew in on it! @warzan

    All right a difficult yet achievable goal let’s do it folks, remember the rules content or feedback only!

    Alright in the mean time you know what to do!
    Keep those brushes wet and I will see you later!
    CYA :D

    Back in business 8-)

  • Avatar Image lawnor1261p said 8 months, 1 week ago:

    I’ve finished painting the bases (and the eyes and finger/toe nails too) and the arcs but theres no time left to varnish and there may not be until friday. I painted them all in 6 days and now its going to take that long to get as far as varnishing them. Its really bugging me that they are finished but not finished and its such a simple afterthought of a task in the way.

    @andre77 it’s been a while, so I may get the names a bit wrong, but the front row is Stilgar, ??, Chani, Paul, Jessica and Alia? And is that Gurney in the middle at the back? :D
