What little time I have I try to spend gaming. -Adeaddylan
The broken down house is done (just needs a sealer spray)
The Tree/bush needs some highlight coats and maybe a wash (still waiting for some of the white glue in the bush to dry completely (tried a technique that I saw on Wylock's channel to make banners and figured it would work for making the tree bits - but with the local humidity it is going on 24 hours not dry yet).
the Circle thing is done, but I am not sure that I like it (the stones look to much like oversized grave stones, however the layout doesn't make sense).
Rock bridge thing (just finished carving/sand texturing) - I might want to make some small pliability modifications so units can actually be part way up the sides, else it won't be a usable bridge, just blocking terrain.
Barricades (treating them as cover and can be crossed as difficult terrain)
Stone Pillar on stand [Something to make level interest]
Right now the broken down house seems to be a very 'focal point' to every game - it is the most done bit of terrain I have, the rest is jenga blocks, some cardstock cubes/blocks painted grey/etc. I need to get some more interesting terrain made so that it doesn't become the focus of every match.
Very new to Wargaming as a hobby, but thanks to the simplicity and flexibility of Grimdark Future I'm looking to dip my toes.
For that, I'm trying my hand at 3D printing some stuff I find online to get the look and feel you'd associate with wargaming (without crippling my wallet).
So here is my first finished model, since I'm aiming to run primarily Battle Sisters. I like the look of her, so she'll probably be my Hero unit. I'm still getting use to painting and I'm still experimenting, but I think she turned out well for my first few goes at it. She's standing on some unfinished terrain I'm trying to make out of cardboard. Lots of experimenting and first times here.
Experimentation and practice are the keys to improve. James, if I may offer an advice, I would suggest you to try diluting more your colors. Generally speaking, most of the times, you will not want to use colors straight from the pot. Also, as Duncan says... Two thin layers are better than one thick one Anyhow, your efforts looks already nice and very promising.
Here is the gang of Orks I usually get stomped by Speesh Mehrines with... Bar the Mantic one: that's a new entry, he's carrying a Railgun. Assembled and painted specifically to get rid of Rocket Launcher brother. We'll see how things will go next time...
Thanks for the tip! I'm still not use to using paints, and having been having mixed results for a bit. But it's been really fun getting into painting miniatures and such, so I don't mind the trial and error involved.
Love the Orks! Usually when I see Orks they seem to look on the goofier side, but these ones look really slick. I think the different colored uniform bits makes them really stand out in the group shot. I'll have to keep that in mind if I ever take a crack at making an Ork warband.
Thank you. The fact that you like the color scheme makes me happy. When started painting these, I looked for a quick way and after some thinking I,ve decided that besides the “body parts” (skin, theet, eyes, etc) and metal, I would had used just shades of gray plus one accent color. I’m pretty satisfied by the result, all considered. Glad you like it too!
My initial coat was watered down PVA glue + black craft paint. Maybe I needed to use just the PVA glue without any paint. Might have thinned the PVA to much. I only started doing this painting/terrain crafting stuff a short while back. Other then a few minis that I painted 5-6? years ago, I started with some terrain elements 2? weeks back.
