Maybe it's just the photos, but the white on the TFN ships doesn't look like you did the wash over them?


thanks all

Paints are all GW

The TFN are Ulthuan Grey, with White Scar highlights. I don't wash but line highlight with Nuln Oil, basically painting the wash only in the recesses. Blue is Caledor Sky highlighted with Hoeth Blue

The KON are Miphiston Red highlighted with Evil Sun Scarlet, Brown is Tallarn Sand, highlighted with some white. a pin wash with Devlin mud, again, only in the recesses. No Gold on them.


I've used GW paints for years, but found a better way to get inks into the recesses. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rdv-tmXjd_I
TFN: 2 BC, 4 CA, 2 CL, 8 DD
RPSA: 2 CV, 4 CA, 2 CL, 8 DD
civilian: 4 'FTx' (made FT out of 40K Imp Guard flamer tanks)

These are awesome!

The video you posted on the oil wash was good too. Do you have any other helpful videos or tutorials on painting miniatures that you can recommend?

I've used this technique and it's very good. Depending on the model and the look I'm going for I might use this. For the Starfire models I found a pin wash to be the most effective use of time v result. of course every painter is different and your mileage my vary :D

My Terran Battlecruiser is next (this may be my favorite design of the lot) with another order from shapeways to fill out the rest of the Terran line.

The latest ship joins the fleet! BC-01

More ships are being added but remain on the slipways (Or is that Shapeways).

For all intents and purposes, those two words are interchangeable!

Second wave has arrived...
Didn't realize that the BB and SD are hollow, pretty cool.
I snapped some picks and measurements for anyone interested.

Image

Terran Super Dreadnought. I like this ship, a little pricey in FUD but worth it for the detail.
Image

the mighty double bubble. The Terran Battleship is pretty unique in the Terran line.
Short and pudgy, about as long as a Terran CL.
My wife suggested the name TFN Jayne Mansfield
Image

Rigellian CV. I like this design. Captures the original counter and, of course, the strong BSG vibe. Torn in painting these as Terrans or Rigellians. I see how long I can hold out of waiting for the Terran carrier sculpt. :D
Image

Lastly the Terran CL and Rigellian CVL
Cute little ships. The CL is pretty plain but detail is great.
The CVL is what you'd expect, a cute baby version on it's big sister.
Image

Onto the painting station...

Nice pictures, FUD is so hard to get a clear picture of. But don't you just love FUD?

I have some Strong & Flexible, some acrylic, some FUD, and one experimental FXD. I'm only buying FUD from now on...

Just looking at pictures of Strong & Flexible told me enough. Too rough at the small scale. I'm not the world's best painter but Strong & Flexible just stacks the deck against you. I'm a big fan of FUD.

Since Buckaroo13 hasn't posted it here yet, I will... he's done a video review of the miniatures. Yay!
