Ive been holding on to my bikes for like forever because I’ve always felt that painting white is such a misery. I begun working on Ravenwing instead but was never really feeling them.

Tonight I dove right into this with an intention of painting my khan, bikes and assault squad + other units in -white scars-

With that said. How do you guys think my first bike came out? Not finished at all but I’m gonna settle for this white, is the white ok?

Looks pretty good.

My one recommendation would be to do something to clean up that line from the wash on the front tire panel.

Thank you for feedback. I really am not enjoying painting white but I will suck it up and hopefully get better in time.

I will settle for this white and quality for base troops. Some cleaning up to do but mostly done.

You did a good job painting the model and decorating his base.
Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)

Warhammer 40,000+ Star Wars- Rian Johnson- Reylo= AWESOME! (Knights of Renaissance)

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement) or the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

Thank you! I know it looks a little dirty and not crispy white. But honestly, I don’t care anymore 😀 I’ve struggled for like two years on and off trying to find a way to paint white that suites my needs

you think the white armour is ok? Been having stress-related syndroms regarding this aging project about painting white.

Of course a landraider or two!

I do like it.  It's "white" and yet "used".  So the red and other colors pop just as well if the armor was PURE WHITE.  :tu:

I've just started trying to get the hang of white, and I thought black was tricky. I'm still in the experiments stage, but I've come across a couple of methods which you might find useful. They're both reasonably quick.

 

Thin layers can't be emphasised enough, and I think if an airbrush ever had a place, painting white is probably it. Not that I have one.

Thank you for your input @NiceGuyAdi yes black is a walk in the park in comparison! Ive found a way that suites me with painting white;
-Corax White spray
-touch up with white scar
-1:10 drakenhof nightshade/lahman medium wash entire model
-drybrush praxeti white (or whatever its called)

Fast and ok result!

After wash:

After one go of drybrush:

Is it me or is there a lot of "fuzz" from the spray?

I think that's what's causing the fuzz, at least that's what happens here is SE United States.

 

An alternative I used to do was to stand at the door frame, spray direction toward the outside and turn the tray with one hand.  Then put the tray in front of a box fan blowing outside.  This method kept the "stink" out of the house.  Frankly, it's a crazy plan and only works for 1-2 models at a time ... BUT it worked when I just *had* to get stuff primed.

 

I wouldn't recommend it really as it is simply better not to spray on humid days.

 

Naturally, the alternative is hand priming :lol:

Warming your rattle can for 10mins or so in a bowl of warm water, then shaking for 2mins before spraying may help it come out smoother.

Ok this is it, im going with this. Im going to challenge myself with accepting that what is, thats how its going to be. The humidity still plauges the spraying.
