We Return To Warren's Airbrushing

40 Comments

We come back to find out how Warren’s doing with his airbrushing and he looks ready for his very own 3 Colours Up.

Warren is adding a zenith to his miniatures, using the airbrush to add some texture and shade to these 15mm miniatures.

You’ve made the intro now. You have no choice. i want an episode of 3 colours up starring Warren, where he starts out optimistic, but slowly across the video he ends up swearing, with plastic soldier parts glued to his face and paint everywhere but the mini. Make it as a joke video, but pretend its serious. Let people work it out by watching it.

Love the idea of the sun on their backs @warzan it is a simple highlight. You are definately not a gorrila with any kind of brush – great work.

Really saw how light weight the plastics are when they get blown around by the airbrush, wonder if they need some 2p coins on the bases.. 🙂

looking good @warzan, like the highlighting technique. What sort of wash are you thinking of using?

steady on big fella who would have thought 50 shades of grey would get your creative juices flowing. They are good enough for me to pick up clear details on a wall mounted tv ten feet away so well done its working. Besides as long as your happy sod the painting snobs

Warren’s 3 colours up… not a bad idea for people who don’t like to paint. Tips and tricks to get armies painted fast and easy.

Good call on this technique, you can knock out a lot of miniatures all at once.

If you can keep paint flowing through an airbrush you definitely aren’t a gorilla!!

Really enjoying seeing @warzan getting a good set of painted models. I have no time for painting snobs. Fair enough for competition painting, but for toys for the table there really is no point wasting time fannying about putting far too much effort into the process. Particularly for 15mm. I’m of an age now where my eyesight is getting worse, and really, the whole idea that something is “good enough if it is good enough” is all I am bothered about. Only me and my opponent (who is probably more interested in the game and more worried about what his own look like) see my models, they are for play not display, so its bish bash bosh all the way!

Very nice warzan if they don’t like your model’s they can go Frick themselves.

Nice work. If the minis are too light, put some real sand on the base, just a thin layer will suffice. That both makes the bases heavy enough not to be tossed over or around by the slightest breeze and it also gives the base a nice texture. I always do this on my mini´s bases and it works fine.

Those miniatures are really starting to come together, looking forward to seeing the end product

Whatever works for you my man! As me and my eyes get older, I realize I’m happier with a little less detail and good basing!

This seems exactly the right approach at this scale in my opinion – too much detail can look really busy on smaller figures.
