GALLERY: JULY 2015

Neither vacation nor job didn't stopped the painting. There was a lot going on with Scar_hand Painting in July. Couple comissions awaited essential materials needed to start or finish the paintjob. This resulted into switching places between them and investing free time slots into renovation of older pieces. All in all i was able to paint some miniatures for myself too (at last!) which made me double happy. My INFINITY NOMADS are now Tournament ready with brand new units eager to take up the fight. I used the opportunity to create another Painting Tutorial which shows how to paint Infinity Nomads Red Armour - Scar_hand Painting's style. Being forced to hold in midwork with an awesome Malifaux comission i switched to Infinity: Yu Jing armya and couple of side projects. Fortunately i've managed to finish Malifaux as the bases got here on time :) Here's how July looks like:

Aleph (Infinity) army with 18 models just being prepared.

TUTORIAL: PAINTING INFINITY NOMAD RED ARMOUR

Here is a Step-by-step guide of how to paint Infinity Nomad Red Armour - Scar_hand Painting's style :)



A complete Recipee used to paint my Infinity Nomads may be found in COLOUR RECIPEES: INFINITY NOMADS. You can also find some additional pictures in the NOMADS: CORREGIDOR lvl 4,5 Gallery.

I used:
* GW Standard Brush,
* Tamiya Modeling Brush HG,
* AP Wargamer: The Psycho,
* GW Chaos Black Undercoat,
* GW Mechrite Red, (When this one runs out i'll switch to P3 Formula 'Sanguine Base' instead),
* GW Wazdakka Red,
* AP Skeleton Bone,
* White,
* AP Strong Tone Ink,
* AP Red Tone Ink,

 1) I used Chaos Black spray to undercoat the model. I usually do this by applying eight layers of undercoat from eight different angles (four at the front and four at the back of the model, each at the same 45* angle with one directed up, one down, one left and one right side of the model).

2) The first layer of Red was made with Standard Brush and Mechrite Red. I tried not to fill the recesses too much and to cover all buldes smoothly.


3) I switched to Tamiya Modeling Brush and applied Wazdakka Red to all bulges and flat surfaces of the armour, leaving cavities Mechrite Red'ed. This madethe armour look more smooth and ready to be highlighted.



 4) I applied a 50%/50% mix of Wazdakka Red and Skeleton Bone in the middle and on the edges of particular surfaces. 



 5) I added White to the Wazdakka/Skeleton mix and further lined the model.


6) More White was added to the mix and another layer of lines and points was made.


7)  I switched back to Standard Brush and washed the armour with Strong Tone Ink.


8) I switched to The Psycho to add some Skeleton Bone/White lining in the key points of the armour.


9) I switched to Tamiya Modeling Brush and washed the armour with Red Tone Ink.


10) "Oops! I did it again" washing all the armour with Red Tone Ink to finally finish it. 


Hope that you find this little tut useful and that you will post some pictures of miniatures painted this way ;)

MODELLING: PHALLOSO DREADNOUGHT

Are you a true Warhammer 40k fan? Do you play Space Marines like all grown men? Do you want to dominate the Warhammer 40k tournaments? Do you intend to strike fear with your Space Marines? If the answer is yes then this tutorial is something for you!


A Dreadnought is the embodiment of Warhammer 40k, Space Marines and Fear. A mighty warrior once fighting in countless battles to finally give his life 'for the Emperor!' and spend eternity encased in the cold confines of a Dreadnought carapace. Even among Dreadnoughts there is none mightier and more feared than Phalloso type. Armed with two powerful Dick-shaped close combat weapons the Phalloso strikes fear in the hearts of all enemies, including Necron and Tyranids! There is a saying among the Imperials that 'to die by the... hands of a Phalloso Dreadnought is to taste fate worse than to be consumed by the Gods of Chaos themselves'

BEFORE YOU PROCEED - GO ON AND BUY A DREADNOUGHT! 




TUTORIAL: HOW TO MAKE A PHALLOSO DREADNOUGHT

1) Using Citadel Hobby Knife* get inside the box! There's a Dreadnought waiting to be born!
* Remember to reattach a special protective cover when you're done. You don't want to harm yourself!


2) The box, assembly instruction and transfer sheets are all garbage* for ladylike kids - trash them immediately!
*"But i like the transfer sheets" WHOOOOT?! Stop this tutorial right now and do not - i repeat - DO NOT lay your womanish hands on a sacred plates of a Dreadnought! Go and collect some Eldar!


3) Using Citadel Plastic Cutters remove two Dreadnought Close Combat Weapon base parts* from the sprues. I know that for a srong man's hands Plastic Cutters are poor and unnatural tool but one must suffer if one is to create a magnificent work!
*"What about other parts?" Don't worry, we will get there in time. The most important thing in modelling is to plan your work accordingly!


4) We finally got there! From now on all the modelling stuff will get more manworthy! Using Citadel Hobby Vice* cut some Green Stuff into pieces!
*Some poor modellers disregard Citadel Hobby Vice as useless. If someone tells you not to buy one  then he's modelling skills are probably far below the mediocree level.


5) Time for some sculpting. First prepare a Green Stuff ball anr roll it down with Citadel Clean-up Tool*.
*This tool is pretty useless but hey - we've just found a use for it!
Now sculpt the D'claws starting with the head and foreskin. The more love you'll put to it the more fear it will strike in the future.


6) After gluing the D'claws to the Dreadnought's forehands place them into the Vice and under a strong light source. Heat will quicken the process of hardening and you will be able to start modelling some ammo clips. Start by chopping more Green Stuff pieces with Citadel Razor Saw and create four balls from it. Polish the balls with Citadel Clean-up Brush so that they shine* nicely.
*This will bring additional terror effect as the light reflected by the balls will imitate that of Emperor's own halo!


7) Do you feel your testosterone pumping in your vanes?! LEt it loose by reaping off all the rest of the Dreadnought's bitz out of sprues. Use man-friendly Citadel Hobby Vice to do it and sing THIS SONG while doing so!


8) For most of us gluing small bitz together is the worst of all nightmares! It usually ends up with fingers, trousers and literally everything glued together but for the parts intended. Do not falter tho as you can deceive the system and use two* Citaled Hobby Vice to do the work.
*Double the Vice, double the fury, double the MAN POWER!
Remember to drill some with Citadel Hobby Drill. It is not necessary but it's a lot of fun and your girlrfiend will get into good mood if she sees it. 


9) You now have two mighty weapons for your Phalloso Dreadnought but he still misses one vital part - it's soul - the Sarcophagus! Do not bother to use a regular hobby file to prepare the front part of the Sarcophagus as it will take forever to make it done. Use the all-powerful Citadel Emery Boards to flatten the surface, then put some Green Stuff on it and sculpt* a nice Cock ornament on it.
*The best tool for the job is the back of Citadel Hobby Saw!


10) Just add some final touch by futher polishing the Phalloso Dreadnought with Citadel Clean-up Brush. Remember that every minute devoted to the task will earn you advantage in future battles!


11) It's finally done! The Phalloso Dreadnought is ready for battle and you can rest assured that it'll scare the hell out of your opponents! You can sip some pure whiskey out of Citadel Brush Cup while admiring your work...
