  • conventional wisdom dictates that a well-primed is wholly covered by a layer of primer, I'd like to know if this speckly priming is as effective as conventional priming. If so, how do we go about doing it? Any advice given will be greatly appreciated :D

    • @Mezgike yes mezgike sensei 🙇‍♂️

      G W KangG W Kang13 giờ trước
    • Yeah mate but I don’t give conventional wisdom, I just give Mezgike wisdom. I should do a more detailed video about the process in the future. Best advice I can give though is just give it a try for yourself and see what you reckon. Just spray as normal but take it to 80% coverage, not all the way. Mezgike wisdom says it is ALWAYS better to underspray than overspray.

  • Do you prefer airbrush steel legion drap or brush it on the model? :) i try to copy your work it is so good!

    Alexander K.Alexander K.3 ngày trước
    • Thanks, if you have an airbrush that would be better as it’s faster and goes on smoothest.

  • So I was painting my bold action army being happy I am finally applying the basic colors right and covering the mini and blocking out the colors ... and then I was listening to this. I think he did that in the first minutes and apologized for it being the boring part :))))))

  • I like the look very much even when I prefer a different color sheme and building up structure of the colors. But painting an army this way is much more brutal... Congratz 😁

  • I don't plan on doing this even if it works but would it be possible to make the glowing effect with an airbrush?

    Hugh Corn WallaceHugh Corn Wallace23 ngày trước
    • Yeah it’s of course possible to do with an airbrush. Just don’t use white to make the glow, I would only use white to paint the coils, then use a transparent green such as green ink or glaze through the airbrush. And that will create a glow effect.

  • This looks a lot like he bringers of decay frautured in spikey bits a few years ago. By mike igram I think. Is that you?

    TrashboatTrashboat24 ngày trước
    • Yeah mate that’s me :)

      MezgikeMezgike24 ngày trước
  • The head on the side near his leg, did you add that? If so where did you get the head and how did you do that? Thanks man, this is like my favorite mini I've ever seen.

    Hugh Corn WallaceHugh Corn Wallace25 ngày trước
    • @Mezgike Thanks man!

      Hugh Corn WallaceHugh Corn Wallace25 ngày trước
    • @Hugh Corn Wallace yeah just cut t mouth off and use milliput to sculpt a new one. Take your time, use a little water on a fine paint brush to refine and smooth the sculpting while you work. A fine brush is good for cleaning up gaps between teeth for example. And again, you can use some slime and glossy stuff to disguise any imperfect sculpting ;)

      MezgikeMezgike25 ngày trước
    • @Mezgike Oh ok thanks, I was also wondering about the face because it looks like mine except for the mouth. I like your mouth a lot more too so I think I'll do the same. I'm guessing you used something like milliput and just formed a mouth?

      Hugh Corn WallaceHugh Corn Wallace25 ngày trước
    • Thanks Hugh, nah mate that head is just part of the leg, it’s from the multipart plague marines box. In fact the whole model comes from that kit except the head, which is a blight lord head, but I cut the mouth off and resculpted it (other one looks like a vacuum hole for a mouth). And the skulls under his feet are piled up skulls from the GW skulls kit. The base is sector imperialis. Nothing else goes into him from memory.

      MezgikeMezgike25 ngày trước
  • How did you add the slime near the base of his feet

    Hugh Corn WallaceHugh Corn Wallace27 ngày trước
    • @Mezgike Thanks a ton this is really helpfull!

      Hugh Corn WallaceHugh Corn Wallace27 ngày trước
    • I just sculpted it with some putty. It’s not hard, just roll some putty and kind of drape it over the skulls, then press it down and make it look kind of dripping. It doesn’t have to be perfect because you can cover it with a few layers of burgles rot after it’s painted green.

    • Paint white, then paint bright orange (Fluor orange by Vellejo), then GW dawn yellow made into a wash, then use the orange to glaze around the outside for the glow

  • The glow makes sense. I have a coral aquarium a d some coral will die in direct lighting, so they require light reflected off of the sand. Thus the glow would reflect off of the chest plate.
