Hi guys, I recently did a painting guide for white marble and it's now available online.

 

Feel free to leaver any comments or criticisms. I am still getting used to the process and software, but I think it's edited a little better than my last one.

Great tutorial Tzen, I'll be off out to buy some paint I guess : ) You've got nice clear advice and pictures. Thanks.

Thanks Rob_loken!

The video is a little ropey in parts, but hopefully I'll get better at editing them as I do more! :D

Very good guide Tzen. I've got a dozen suggestions for videos, but I'll spare the thread and send a PM when i get a chance. I especially liked you went over the tools and techniques... even what dry brushing was for people new to the hobby. My only critique... bigger picture of the finished product. That model and base looked awesome!

Thanks Eldrick! 

 

Critique taken on board! I will do my best to have a bigger picture next time round! 

 

I have no idea what I will do next. Maybe something a little shorter. :D

Now I just need to figure out how to adapt it to black marble...

The Blood Angels are the Renaissance in power armour, with all of that majesty, splendour, and ingenuity turned anaemic by vampirism... with a mandate to conquer the galaxy on wings of iron and fire. They're paladins with sacred weapons and beauteous facemasks, crying out in inhuman choirs for the taste of their enemies' blood.

Great tutorial!! I think I will try this out soon when I come up with something to paint like marble ;).

 

Any chance at one on how to paint 30k Thousand Sons in the candy red color?

Thanks Ronin, really glad you liked!

 

I'll add that to the list. Do you mean the way they appear on the box art, or the way FW do theirs?

I'm going to give this method a try - I've got a couple dozen Shattered Dominion bases I want to paint up in a Tizca style for my Custodes.  Thanks for the tutorial!

The effect on the first one came out a little too subtle and a bit too busy (I guess I just need a better source pic to work from).  Surely not as nice as the one in the video.

I find that if I thin the paints down to the consistency you mention, they don't really make crisp lines at all - even with a good brush.  There's just not enough pigment to do more than just shade the area a bit.  So it just looks smudgy rather than veiny.

 

Here's the first attempt using that technique.  I'm working on glazing OSL for the cracks so please ignore that work in progress.  Used all the colors you recommend, in the consistencies you recommend, using glaze medium instead of water etc.  And I'm hardly an inexperienced painter.  Can't understand why it looks so bad.

I think you may be being a touch hard on yourself here. I think that looks pretty good! 

You know your own paint thickness better than anyone, when I painted my veins on the example in the video, I kinda of "dropped" the paint on in lines. So not clean brush strokes, but tiny pooled areas of diluted paint. Not sure that helps :S 

You also have a touch base to do in marble. There is already a lot going on there!

Once again though, it does look good. Being too harsh on yourself! :D

Thank you, I appreciate that.  I do think maybe I need to not make so many veins - perhaps it looks just a little too busy.

I also learned that Vallejo Glaze Medium takes forever to dry.  So I had to paint a layer, wait hours, and repeat.  It's so bad that I let the base dry overnight and the next morning there was still a puddle on my palette that hadn't dried out completely.

 

Anyhow, here's the finished product.

Honestly I think it looks great. If you imagine the blue and gold details aren't there (they looks great too), and just look at the marble areas, I think you have done a great job. :)
