The early days of our hobby are always spent trying to figure out how put our armies together, and get some paint on them and how to play the game. Lots of fond memories from those days. Here are some pictures for What's On Your Table from one of our winners for random Eternal Crusade Giveaway.



I figured I would send you a bunch of pictures of some of my best (in my opinion of course) work I have done for that giveaway you are doing!

please note, I am VERY new to the hobby in general. I'd say I got my first kit a year ago.

attached are as follows:
A necron overlord (first HQ unit I ever made)
A necron warrior ( around the first models I ever painted period. note the random blood war paint design I free handed, I was trying to experiment with ways to pain miniatures and kind of got bored so I went crazy.)
and lastly, a skaven clanrat. This one I painted actually very recently (I'd say a week ago) and for my first WFB model I ever painted, I'm kind of proud of it lol.
So anyways thanks for taking the time out of your day to read this, and I hope you enjoy my submission, let me know what you think! - Andrew

  1. Nice job! Minis are nicely done, but I suggest you to start experimenting with shades - these Necrons could use some Nuln Oil and the think about shading skavens skin with Reikland Fleshshade - it's simple, but it gives great effect :)

    1. I agree with captain dred, washes are our friends when first starting out they will hide any mistakes. Also think about dry brushing progressively lighter colours after washing it will give depth to the model. A belated welcome to the hobby.

    2. Thanks for the input! I suppose the true problem here is that I only used 1 coat of a wash on each of these minis when they were done. It would appear as though it isn't very noticeable.
      thanks for the suggestions, I actually used agrax earthshade on my lord and warrior to give it a more earthen tone but now that i am looking it over I think nuln oil would work quite better.

      Thanks! -Andrew

  2. Good job starting out.. as well as using shades.. make sure you thin your paint 50/50 ratio one drop of water for each drop of paint.. it will take several coats but by slowly building up the color with thin layers (that dry fast) you will preserve details and get a much smoother effect

    1. unless it is "dry" paint special fx "technical" paint. you don't really need much if any for that. otherwise these above two pieces of advice will take you far painting wise.

    2. Thanks for the tip! One question I have for you is how should I go about getting paint out of the pot with out it drying out? -Andrew

  3. i like the cronz (funny as i'm not much a fan overall of that faction) and the skaven is fantastic for a first timer. tbh you paint better than i do and i have done it for the last 15-20 years :D
