Vlog 70: Sta-Wet Palette Sheets

I’ve heard the palette sheets are not great for miniature paints so I made some of my own from parchment paper.

Miniature Mondays: Reckoner 2, Electric Boogaloo

Reckoner, Heavy Warjack by Privateer Press

With the Vanquisher finished, I’m moving on to the other heavy warjack in the lot, the Reckoner. The model is not perfect. Some of the details were obscured during the paint stripping process and I had to do a lot of major gap filling near the base of the smoke stacks. Also, whoever assembled the model scraped a little too much off some parts. I should be able to work with it but I will not repair it. Hopefully, it will look decent after it’s painted.

I previously purchased a heavy warjack kit and magnetized the Reckoner chassis. This model is going to stay a permanent Reckoner since I use at least one in most of my lists. I might paint it slightly differently but still working with black and sanguine.

Miniature Mondays: Yu Jing: Ninja with Tactical Bow (Finished)

Yu Jing: Ninja with Tactical Bow (Finished)

This was a very frustrating model to paint. The model looked great, I’m just not skilled enough to bring it to life the way I wanted to. I’m not down, it gives me more motivation to learn new skills and paint more!

Skills I need to work on: edge highlighting, blending and working with black. As you can tell, my edge highlights need a lot of work. I tried to employ several techniques but they didn’t come out great. My brushes were not co-operating with me and the paint kept getting everywhere. I need to work on brush control. I also need to work on paint consistency. It could be why the paint was getting everywhere.

I also need to work on the basing. I went back and forth between clean and dirty and couldn’t figure it out. The urban theme is also something new for me. The base didn’t come out as well as I would have liked, it’s going to be another adjustment.

This model was extremely humbling. After feeling good about my last few models that I painted, this one kicks me in the teeth. The final product is not what I wanted, but I will get better. It’s going to be a long road. Check out the pictures below.

This model was fun to paint and easy to assemble. The pose was a little awkward but it makes it easy to distinguish when it’s on the battle field. I tried to employ some edge highlighting and two brush blending but only one came out okay. I had to repaint the black a few times because my two brush blending didn’t go well. I need to read up on how to highlight black or flat surfaces. I like how my Vanquisher turned out and I want to touch up my older warjacks as well. Check out the pictures below and let me know what you think.
