To do that cloak I'd basecoat with the lowest red you want, and do like 5 or 6 more layers on top, each one marginally more orange and leaving the lower color on the darker parts. glaze it with thinned baal red or whatever, and maybe do a highlight again with the orange

This is a heavy weapons team that I completed recently. What do you think of the painting and colour scheme? All criticisms are welcome, especially if you have something to say about the basing.

Magnetic paint should be strong enough to hold the models; I've heard of people using them for 40k models.

The magnetic paint is only going to work for the surface, there isn't actually magnetic properties in the paint itself it is just metal filings in primer. If you get very thin rare earth magnets for the minis and a surface with the paint you'll be solid.

The figured bases would get the magnetic paint, and the surface would be based on the rollable magnetic sheets.

Fuckin dusty-assed white primer. Armory or Krylon, I'm getting some really grainy poo poo out of these things. poo poo sucks.

White's always hard to get to cover, spraying's no different. Even if it's not solidly white you still have a good enough surface to paint on.

Not a great sculpt, but adding on some green stuffed hair goes a loooong way towards making it a lesbian knight. And it's in full armor, though the armor lacks realism.

Is there a place where I can get some precut pieces of MDF board? Like 1' x 1' squares or circles or something.

Go to a hardware store and have them cut up a piece of 8'x10'x1/8" hardboard into 1x1 squares. It's like 10 bucks for the whole piece.

While the shades I use for painting flesh are dependent upon the figure for the reasons outlined above, most commonly I use a mix of Vallejo Warlock Purple from their Game Colour range, and Charadon Granite, again from Games Workshop's foundation range, along with a little Dheneb Stone mixed in. The figure in the picture below has had the above mix applied over a Dheneb Stone base.

If you live in the US, go to a Dollar Tree and pick up a toothbrush and some "LA's Totally Awesome", it's piss yellow and in the cleaning supplies section. Let the dudes soak in the stuff for a day or two, then take them out and scrub under running water. The paint and most of the primer should come off, a little bit left behind isn't a big deal.

Rope: Calthan base, Snakebite 1st highlight, Snakebite/Khaki 2nd highlight

Grey Hair: Codex -> Fortress (maybe the other way around I forget which is darker) -> Fortress/White Mix

What does this stuff do to resin and would it be safe to, say, stick Armorcast parts in it. I'm going to be coming into possession of some Titans and I'll want to strip the paint from them, but if it's not safe to do with simple green or LA's then I don't know what the gently caress

I didn't notice anything when I threw some green stuff scraps in mine but I'm really not sure.

I have never personally used milliput products for any epoxy work, so I couldn't comment on them. How does it react to water?

I have a box of Milliput yellow/grey. It's basically the same thing as green stuff, but takes a little longer to set, and is VERY crumbly the first 10 minutes or so. It's super cheap, though, so it's good for filling in spaces before putting green stuff details on top.

I've also heard good things about using milliput/green stuff in a 1:1 ratio but I haven't tried that yet.
