    The content beyond the intro is probably very good judging by the feedback I'm seeing on here, but to me.."nope can't get past the opening". (Download buffering won't let me bypass it).

    I probably feel this way because of all the voice actors, and their delivery, that I listen to, and to be honest I detest the sound of my own recorded voice which is why I've never gone down the recording route.

    I thank you for the feedback. But, at the moment I certainly don't wish to claim to be something I am not ('professional').
    I'm just a guy with a camera that tends to get asked a lot of questions. So, I have simply been making an effort to answer them. As my support network grows, things will definitely improve, and start looking more 'professional'. As for hating the sound of my own voice? Absolutely. Recording these has made me much more cognizant of my accent, and as result, I am doing my best to sound less like a backwoods Canadian.

    Too bad you can't FFWD, as that's about 5 seconds of the entire video. :P

    Ill say this I agree with mike DR . I'm really not a fan of things like the intro. However I just went on to have a look and made it passed the first micro intro antics and I agree also with the fact that they are pretty decent tutorials that can benefit a wide spectrum of people. Addresses the questions well and is informative. So of one can make it past that bit of ghooool painting tips thingie I can see folks viewing an overall decent tutorial. And hey if people are asking questions , you have to answer them right. So good job on that as well.

    Quick Tip #46 - How to Paint Legion of Everblight Skin

    This video has long been in the queue. After my Patrons voted on a Legion model for me to paint, I have finally gotten around to recording this tutorial. I cover the basic colours and shading techniques required to paint Legion of Everblight skin/flesh similar to the Privateer Press Studio.
    This might not be exactly the studio's recipe, but it will get the job done, and look great regardless.



    All colours used are Forumla P3 by Privateer Press unless stated otherwise. If a number in brackets appears after a shade or highlight, that is the number of shades/highlights you need to apply, with each subsequent layer adding more of the shade or highlight to the mix.

    Base: Frostbite
    Shade 1: Underbelly Blue
    Shade 2: Underbelly Blue/Sanguine Base
    Shade 3: add Greatcoat Grey to the previous shade.
    Highlight: Frostbite to re-take areas with too much shading.

    Quick Tip #47 - How to Paint Legion of Everblight Carapace/Horn



    A requested video from at least a year ago -Legion of Everblight Carapace/Horn. Thagrosh gets his horns, and spikes painted in the style of the PP studio, and I cover the colours to get close enough, if not, exact.
    This is quite easy to do, and doesn't require any blending expertise at all. If you have decent brush control and a good detail brush, anyone can do this.

    All paints used in the video are Formula P3 by Privateer Press unless stated otherwise.

    Base: Battlefield Brown
    Highlight 1: Gun Corps Brown
    Highlight 2: Rucksack Tan
    Highlight 3: 'Jack Bone

    Quick Tip #48 - How to Paint a Colour: Blue

    This is another in the 'How to Paint a Colour' series, and is one of the easiest to master - blue.
    I paint a 'true' blue in this video, and would be very useful for any Cygnar players. I cover alternate blues in the P3 range, and what you can use for shading and highlighting them. This is very close to the PP Studio method for Cygnar blue with some slight modifications.
    Also covered is a simple method for shading and highlighting undulating cloth, without it looking contrived or forced.



    All colours used in this video are Formula P3 by Privateer Press unless stated otherwise. In the case of a number inside a bracket (X) after a highlight or shade, this is the number of shades/highlights to paint, with each successive layer requiring more of the listed shade/highlight.

    Base: Cygnar Blue Base
    Shade 1: Exile Blue
    Shade 2: Exile Blue/Battlefield Brown
    Highlight 1: Cygnar Blue Highlight
    Highlight 2: Menoth White Base (2)

    Alternates: Any blues will always be easy to experiment with. Use oranges, browns, and darker blues. Highlights can include light greens, whites, light blues, and cream colours. Feel free to experiment as blue is a very versatile colour.

    Quick Tip #49 - The Dip Method



    This is by far the easiest and quickest method to get scads of miniatures painted. I have used the dip method for almost all of my board games, and it's also an easy way to begin painting without the daunting task of figuring out how to do anything besides base coat.
    A great method for the beginner learning brush control, and the expert wanting to paint a large amount of models fast.

    I use Army Painter Quickshade - Strong Tone in this video. but there are definitely cheaper replacements to be found at the hardware store and elsewhere. The strong tone has a nice all-purpose colour, and is worth the extra money spent.

    Painting Pin-up Warrior of the Sun for Kingdom Death: Monster - Part 1



    This video is a new series I'll be releasing every once in a while. These videos are much more labor intensive, and will release sporadically as time permits.
    What this new series will cover, is a single miniature from start to finish, and I will talk about what I did and why. Some in-depth discussion on colour scheme, harmonies, compliments, and why I chose them get extensive coverage.

    This session covers the skin, hair, and face. Not much is show of the face, as there are quick tips which cover the basics of painting eyes, and make-up. This video's main focus is getting a smooth, soft and pale, anime flesh-tone with a very smooth gradient.
    The method used in this video is more for advanced painters, as it's pretty time-consuming and more difficult. However, it produces some great results for contest-worthy pieces. This is my method for getting a smooth, soft gradient on large flat areas of skin.

    Part 2 will follow soon.

    All colours used are Formula P3 paints by Privateer Press unless stated otherwise. When a shade or highlight is followed by a number within brackets, this is the number of shades/highlights to apply with each successive layer, by adding more of the listed colour.

    Base: Midlund Flesh
    Shade: Khardic Flesh, Bloodtracker Brown, Ordic Olive
    Re-take base colour of Midlund Flesh to clean up shading.
    Highlight 1: (2) Ryn Flesh and Midlund Flesh
    Highlight 2: Ryn Flesh

    All right, based on a what a couple of you have mentioned in the thread, starting with this video, and going forward, there's no shenanigans at the beginning.
    I hope this helps the videos come across as more professional, and you guys will give them another chance. Now I need to work on some sort of 'real' intro.

    Anyways, here's....

    Quick Tip #50 - How to Paint Hair: Dark Brown

    Another in the 'How to Paint Hair' series, that demonstrates the colours and techniques needed for painting dark haired miniatures. Dark, but not quite black hair.



    All paints used in the video are Formula P3 by Privateer Press unless stated otherwise.

    Base: Battlefield Brown
    Shade: Battlefield Brown/Coal Black
    Highlight 1: Battlefield Brown/Gun Corps Brown
    Highlight 2: Gun Corps Brown
    Highlight 3: Gun Corps Brown/Hammerfall Khaki

    This is another easy colour of hair to experiment with. Feel free to try yellows, blues, grays, and greens for highlights. Stick to deeper colours like blues and blacks for shading darker coloured hair.

    Bonus Quick Tip - How to Build a Trench Base w/Sandbags



    This is a chunk of footage from my monthly Patron-exclusive series, 'At the Painting Desk', where Patrons get to ask me questions, and I will feature demos and tutorials that go in-depth.
    It releases once a month, and features a lot of coverage like the short clip featured here.

    This is how to assemble from scratch, a trench warfare base with sandbags. Both are great methods for making planking of any kind, and the bases of course can be used for Warmachine, and WWI historical wargames as well.

    Basic tools and techniques are given in-depth coverage so that even the beginner can start making their own trench bases from materials readily available.

    Quick Tip #51 - How to Paint Tanned, or Oiled Leather



    A video that is by Patron request. I hadn't shot a video covering the leather cloak that was on Thagrosh for my legion videos, and they asked if I could demo that. So here it is.
    My recipe for oiled, or tanned leather. A simple scheme and technique that produces some nice, smooth looking cured leather.

    All paints used in the video are Formula P3 by Privateer Press unless otherwise stated. When a number appears in brackets after a shade/highlight, this means there are that number of shades/highlights, with each subsequent shade/highlight adding more of the shade/highlight to the base colour.

    Base: Bootstrap Leather
    Shade (2): Battlefield Brown
    Highlight (2): Beast Hide

    Alternates: By changing just the base shade and highlight, you can achieve a great amount of variation in colour and look. Try GunCorps Brown and Rucksack Tan, or Idrian Flesh and Hammerfall Khaki, or switch just the bask colour to Bloodtracker Brown, or Bloodstone.
    This is another easy one to experiment with. So have fun, and break out some of those browns you hardly ever use and give them a whirl.

    Part 2 in the Painting the Warrior of the Sun (pin-up) from Kingdom Death: Monster.



    I paint the streamers and the majority of her clothing in this episode, which is a rich, warm pink. Again I use my competition methods which are time-consuming, but produce great results.
    Make sure you're familiar with glazing and have good brush control before attempting these techniques. In order to build the richness and depth of colour, glazing is the primary method of both highlighting and shading, with a bit of two brush blending to soften certain parts.

    This is a very time-consuming but rewarding method for getting a high quality paint job for contests and display pieces.

    All glazes were made with paint and water. No additives were used.

    All colours used in this video are Formula P3 by Privateer Press unless stated otherwise.
    When a shade or highlight is followed by a number in brackets, this is the number of highlights or shades applied, with each subsequent layer containing more of the highlight into the previous mix.

    Base: Menoth White Highlight
    Shade 1: Sanguine Highlight
    Shade 2: Skorne Red
    Shade 3: Sanguine Base
    Highlight 1: Sanguine Highlight + Morrow White
    Highlight 2 (2): Morrow White
    Highlight 3: Menoth White Highlight

    As a final step to enrich the pink, you can glaze more Sanguine Highlight into the shadows.

    The hair was glazed over a majority of the highlights with some Sulfuric Yellow, and the deepest shadows given a glaze of Beaten Purple.

    Thanks Ghool. I am new to painting myself. I still only base coat and wash and then I'm done so your videos are teaching me new things. I really enjoyed your beginner tips one. There is a lot I never considered. Do you have one for beginners going over all the choices in paint?

    Cheers!

    Not a video. But, I did an article about 6 years ago.
    http://handcannononline.com/blog/201...ture-painting/

    The GW paints have changed since then though.
    As for paints, I always tell people that there's two things to consider:

    Does it work for your methods?
    And is it readily available?

    With the second one probably being more important. Luckily for me, I have an LGS that stocks a lot. So, I use the P3's due to the pigment saturation, and they work really really well for blending. The pigment is super fine and they also work well with just water for both glazing and washing. But, RMS is a close second for me, and I use Vallejo when I can't get a colour in P3.
    I haven't used the newer GW stuff much at all.

    The only thing to add would be a mention that the Vallejo paints use a dry pigment. As a result, they end up pretty chalky and dry much faster. I also find them to be quite delicate, and rub off easily if heavily handled. If you're using Vallejo, a flow improver/release solution will help remove the chalkiness.

    A bit of discussion on using a limited palette and alternates to change the tints of your browns are also mentioned.

    Dark Brown:
    Base: Battlefield Brown
    Shade 1: Umbral Umber
    Shade 2: Coal Black + Unbral Umber
    Highlight 1: Gun Corps Brown
    Highlight 2: Rucksack Tan

    Green/Brown:
    Base: Thornwood Green
    Shade 1: Cryx Bane Base
    Shade 2: Cryx Bane Base + Umbral Umber
    Highlight 1: Beast Hide
    Highlight 2: Hammerfall Khaki
