Hello everyone !!

Since the Contrast Paints have been released I have been trying a lot different ways to paint weapons. Also, these days pro painters make NMM with a very dark flat section of the blade and a white part on the edge. As i am painting an IronJaws army, i wanted to have this style of Nmm on my weapons. Off course as i plan to have two max units of Black Orcs i needed a time efficient way of painting weapons.

Painting Steps list

I just want to share the steps before showing details just so you know where this is going.


  • Prime white

  • Paint the blade with Contrast Space Wolves Grey

  • Highlight the edge surface of the blade with Fenrisian Grey

  • Highlight the edge surface of the blade with Fenrisian Grey + White at 50/50

  • Highlight the edge surface of the blade with Fenrisian Grey + White at 20/80

  • Highlight the edge surface of the blade with White (i used pure white but didn't cleaned my Air Brush so there was a little of Fenrisian Grey)

  • Shade the flat side of the blade with Abyssal Blue

  • White Lining on weapon and on the scars

The Method

The method is quite easy and I made some photos to show what I did on the weapon.

Priming white

nmm painting tutorial with contrast paints

Simply primed the weapon in white with my airbrush and some white Stynylrez. Don't forget that if your priming is not very thin/flat the contrast paint is not going to flow well and make bad streak. In this scenario just apply a thin coat of Gloss Varnish to help the contrast paint to flow better.

Basing

One thin coat of undiluted Contrast Space Wolves Grey. Just avoid too much pooling but it's super easy to do.

Higlight of the Edge

nmm painting tutorial with contrast paints

Highlights the edge of the blade (on the right of the dark line) with Fenrisian Grey. I use an Airbrush because it's faster but it's 100% doable with a brush ^^ On this blade I Highlight the white circle and in the direction of the arrows, knowing that my brightest spot is going to be there. Don't make an opaque coat, try to keep some of the color showing under to make it more interesting.

First Highlight of the blade edge.

More highlight including more and more white.

Final Highlight (i notice that i forgot to highlight the circle)

Shading of the Flat

nmm painting tutorial with contrast paints

Then I am going to shade the flat section of the blade (left of the white line). Shading using Abyssal Blue from scale 75 in the direction of the white arrow.

Alternate paints option: Dark Reaper GW, Dark sea blue from Vallejo, coal-black from P3. All are dark blue with a tint of green.

Both side of the blade once shaded.

White edge Highlight

nmm painting tutorial with contrast paints

Here do an edge Highlight with pure white and draw a line between the edge and flat section. You can use pure white or add a little bit of blue. Depend on what you prefer. You can also mark the scratch with some pure light dot.

Final Result

That's it for this short tutorial on how to make a quick NMM. It's really easy and looks quite good on the board. Off course if you want to up your game you can add red or brown on the flat and blood for the blood god marks. I'll do it tomorrow and update the post.

Stuffs

Airbrush : Iwata (0.3) and h&s evolution (0.5)
Brush : Redgrassgames (both of them)
Primer : Stynylrez

Hello everyone !!!

As you know Blood Angels are in the light in Psychic Awakening 3.

They get good stuff, more attack, more smash captain and Death company Intercessors !!!

But wait, what’s this? Death Company Intercessors? It was thought that Primaris Space Marines might be immune to the Black Rage, but the legacy of Sanguinius flows in their veins.

Updated black rage :

They get Doctrine as well, and a new Assault Doctrine power :

Dread Libby buff :

A new Litany and the one from Space Marines codex.

Love this stratagem, for me Blood Angels always was Rhino and double tap !!! (

Flesh Tearer Chapter Traits :

I love these news !!! Still i have one question, how many books i need to play BA ?

A Knight battleforce, Bold! Only 2 Acastus, haaaaaa

Psychic Awakening: Blood of Baal

This book is part lore, part codex update, Inside, you’ll see the Blood Angels face the Tyranids once more as part of their desperate ongoing defence of their homeworld. New and updated datasheets give your Blood Angels access to extra army rules, Vanguard units, Stratagems, psychic powers, Litanies and more! There’s even some extra stuff for Flesh Tearers.

The Tyranids are getting some updates. Extra bio-artefacts allow you to create particularly notable models armed with unique weapons. A suite of Stratagems let you change your strategy on the battlefield to better hunt your prey. You’ll even be able to build your own hive fleet with your choice of traits. And that’s not all…

Adaptive Physiology is a new system, bespoke for the Tyranids, that lets you represent the myriad adaptations of the Great Devourer. A Carnifex with Synapse? A pack of camouflaged Tyranid Warriors? It’s all possible thanks to Psychic Awakening. We’ll be previewing these systems in more depth soon, so stay tuned!

Build you own Fleet ? Adaptive Physiology ? Maybe it's going to help the nids ^^

Mephiston

Chapter Approved 2019

Separated in 2 books bundled together exactly like General Handbook.

blood angels psychic awakening

The Field Manual doesn’t just contain updated points, but unchanged ones too, meaning you’ll only have to look in once place when writing your lists!

Kill Team: Annual 2019

This rules supplement is like Chapter Approved, but for Kill Team, bringing together points updates, content previously only printed in White Dwarf and brand-new rules for another great year of skirmish gaming.

Try the Adepta Sororitas, gear up your Heretic Astartes with new guns, forge a narrative with dozens of missions – this gaming toolbox is packed with resources that’ll make your battles more fun however you prefer to play.

Warhammer 40000 : Ultramarines Primaris by Skomorowski !

Small thumb 78674953 438928609983518 2111585087274352640 o

Hello everyone !!

Look at this awesome Space Marines made by Skmorowski !! If you don't know the Artist, he worked for GW during 5 years and made the Solar Auxiliary line for FW and other stuff. Now he's a freelance Sculptor.

Off course the guy is one of the best sculptors but what's even more interesting is that he made this one with Zbrush and printed it in once piece on a solus 3d printer (3K€ 3D printers). To be honest it's been a long time i didn't say out loud "Woaa" for a SM..

Truly, he's alone, sculpted a model and printed it to a better result than at least 50% of the recent FW release ...I guess it could be a secondary market. Don't do you think?
