Bike weathering

     Hello fellows, wargamers, hobbyists, and miniature enthusiasts. As requested by MR.Lee I have prepared a tutorial for you on how to make your bike dirty with pigments. For this effect I used Vallejo Pigments: Brown Iron Oxide and Light Yellow Ochre.

Step 1. I have began by putting the Brown Pigment into a container and mixind it with water to achieve almost fluid-like consistency.

     Step 2. I applied the watered-down Brown Iron Oxide pigment on the bike's wheel. Try to apply it on the highest parts and dirty up the wheel's plating a bit as well it will look more natural.
      Step 3. I repeated the same thing from step 1 with the Yellow pigment but this time I added less water. I wanted it to be more chunky then the brown pigment. I applied the pigment into the wheels' recesses and all the gaps. Don't worry if it gets too clumpy and starts to cover details we will clean that up in a moment.
     Step 4. Take a moist cotton pad or a paper towel and start cleaning up the pigment from the section of the wheel that touches the ground the most. That is done because any dirt and mud won't stick for too long on this part.
     Step 5. Leave the pigment to dry.
     Step 6. If you are satisfied with the result, leave the bike over night to dry before sealing the pigment but if you think it's still too dirty you can come back with a paper towel and repeat step 4.

I would recommend using Vallejo pigment fixer but with so much pigment any varnish in a spray can does the trick.

This is the end result...

Hope you like this simple tutorial. If you have any questions, leave them in the comment section below.

I would also like to invite you to the Den's Facebook page. It's easier to receive new updates on new tutorials and painted miniatures.

They just keep on coming

     So seven bikes already done. Time for a Nephelim Jetfighter action? Btw tomorrow I will post a tutorial on those dirt-covered wheels that few of you guys asked for. I have to say those old bikes aren't bad looking at all in comparison to the new ones. I mean that painted the same way they don't stand out much as one might think.

     It's time to feel... THE FEAR! The Nightlord Project has come to a glorious finish. Finally the display and all the squads are finished. I couldn't be more proud.  I catch myself staring at the whole display fantasizing about a story.  The whole winter set with that frozen lake of dead SMs is sooo mesmerizing. I have to say I tried a lot of new tricks and modeling techniques on this one. It gave me a lot of joy. The frozen lake thing was my debut with the clear resin and it worked out better then I hoped. I want to give special thanks to Marcin Berduszek for making this awesome photo gallery and for sacrificing the time to process the pics. Thanks bro! Here is a link to a larger photo gallery on Facebook I would also ask you to share this with your friends, that will help me out a bunch. I know you want to anyway, and you can tweet about it too. If you want to check out all the work in progress visit the Nightlord Project page.

Rusty Necrons are coming

      Here they come! Get ready, you don't see the green glow yet because they still slumber in their cold rusty metallic shells but the great force is on its way.... soon their sleep will end and the blood will flow!

I see you!

  The final element of the Nightlord Project is done. Now it's time to wait for some cool photos. Excited? You should be. I'm really happy with the whole project. In building this Monster I had a vision in my head to represent the symbol of the Nightlord in a single model. I wanted him to be a swift close combat fighter. Gigantic wings, really long tail to increase his maneuverability and of course a big weapon for agility fighters it leaves his head free.

Temple of Skulls

     Just a "small" eBay project that was made around the studio under some basic techniques training for some newcomers. I must say I'm quite a fan of those basic terrain sets by GW but they need some extra sand work and a bunch of rocks to make them quality gaming material.

     I really like the log with a marauders axe stuck in it after some long session of decapitations at the temple of skulls. It's not a party worth of Khorne's name  if there aren't at least ten decapitations ;p. eBay link.
