Miniature Painting Basics: The Base Coat

I’m back with another miniature painting basics video. In this one I go over the basics of working on a base coat of paint on the miniature. It is a fairly simple video and may be a refresher course for many viewers, but as the title says this is just the basics for a beginner painter.  You can find more of my videos on my YouTube channel.

Neko Oyama Painting Part 5

I’ve been doing a bit of work on Neko Oyama lately. I forgot to take a before picture when I just had him primed, but I will go over the steps I’ve done so far. Before this point I did a base coat of the blue and added a few highlight and lowlight shades and a wash to make the angles and ridges stand out. I then added white on all the ridges to make them stand out.

Free Lance Stringer

 

After a few weeks of work on this miniature I am finally done. She was a blast to paint and a good diversion from the other miniatures that I am currently working on. I also didn’t have any fully painted HVT to speak of and I really had to fix that.

Free Lance Stringer Painting Part 5

The Free Lance Stringer is the HVT that comes in the Dire Foes pack 6. She’s a very sleek looking miniature and will be a blast to paint. Here’s her just as a primed miniature. This post contains everything from part one so I will skip the link back to it. As I did with my recent Yojimbo post I am combining all of my posts together from now on so that when I finally finish It will be one long post that goes from start to finish on the Miniature.

My most recent one was released today. In this one I cover the basic tools necessary to painting miniatures. I am going to post episode 3 here, but I will put links to my other videos on the videos page of my blog.
