What are the worst painted models you have/have seen?
I asked my friend some painting tips and he told me thinning wasn't necessary, and then promptly insulted my paint jobs when I told him to thin paints....here's one of his master works.
>people that smear metallic paint on every fucking weapon
Black base with dry brushed Necron compound looks nice.
I've got a bunch of these I picked up in a thread years ago
First model. Could've started worse. Six years ago...
Definitely could have been way worse. It's not good, but not horrible for a first attempt at the very least.
Or maybe it just seems okay in contrast to some of the horrible shit in this thread.
Oh boy do I have a story for you!
>Be at rich "friends" house
>People only hang around him because he's rich af and has a huge house and table
>Buys entire armies, gets people to commission paint them, then throws them into his closet literally 2 weeks later
>Has done this with every single army in both Fantasy and 40k
>Absolutely shit at both modelling and painting but thinks hes amazing
>has a dremel tool
>Hey anon, wanna see the power of the dremel?
>Pulls out a leman russ and goes ham on it with a dremel, totally destroyes it beyond recognition
>"Why did you do that?"
>"I had an extra leman russ!"
>Pulls out necrons, space marines and proceeds to dremel them into dust to the point where the room smells like burnt plastic
This is the leman russ he "finished" off...
And yes, I did try to save them, he's very greedy with his models, to the point where I can go searching into boxes in his closet and find random forgeworld krieg units, ask him if he still wants them, and his response is >Dude I was about to convert that!
Here is one of the Necrons he destroyed btw
He's done worse.
My favourite is when he stole his mom's credit card (yes he actually did)
to pay 370 dollars to have his riptide pro painted.
He promptly threw it in a shoe box along with about 3,000 points worth of tau
models in his closet and lost most of the magnetized pieces.
Meanwhile, I took autistic level care of my swarm and it got lost in shipping when I moved up the east coast.
Finally rebuilding after years but money is tight...
I would seriously steal his shit
Fuck that man better in your hands then that Fuckwits
This person sounds like they have mental issues. No but for real though, keep away from this fuck.
Being from a place that is hard to get these models and seeing that shit makes me die inside, I even give my chaos scavengers names when they are done from attchment to the tiny plastic guys...
But I knew a boy that was like that when I was younger. I wanted to buy his shit ton of legos (buy, not get, buy) when he got on his teens to do dioramas and stuff and he jusat said "Oh, I still use them!" And never touched then again. Fuck crazy rich people.
I think he does. Some sort of hoarder mentality.
Thing is, he gets 400 dollars a week in "allowance"...
A bunch of us tried to get together and talk to our Local GW manager to get him kicked
out of the store for various shenanigans such as...
>Bringing a ridiculous death star krieg list against a first time player (He's done this several times actually)
>This time it was a 13 year old kid, to which he proceeded to start talking shit to him and about him to people around the store after he won
>5 people ended up yelling at him and he left
>Punching somebody in the balls the first time he came to the store (Happened right infront of me)
>Sticking people's models in his mouth (he did this to a leman russ turret of mine, and my friend's tau,
>People actually get cautious when he comes up to a game now because he does this quite often)
>Admitting to baking his dice, bringing loaded dice, constantly cheating whenever he plays, and lies about "winning multiple tournaments"
>Tries to get people kicked out of the store by making up stories of them and telling the manager when they finally tell him to fuck off.
>Actual stories he made up include "Anon was showing people midget porn!" and "HE STOLE FROM THE STORE BAN HIM!"
>He has a brand new Car his parents bought for him when he turned 16, he's 18 now but doesn't have a license because "I don't have the patience for driving school fuck that."
>Throwing other people's models across the table
>Claims the holocaust never happened, is litterally a neo-nazi, has various swastikas around in his room
About 8 of us came to the store manager to get him banned from the store forever, but the manager was totally against it,
mostly because he spends thousand and thousands of dollars at that store (This store won a life size space marine because this guy bought like 8 age of sigmar pre-order boxes on his own)
Many of us totally avoid him and don't even go to that GW to play any more.
Is that some BKUB?
I got a few I found on eBay a week or two back and a pic of some chunky Chaos Marines I painted with a toothpick from way back
Heres my disasterpiece
Behold the queen of Kislev!
I realized that Horus is Marlon Brando.
Some guy posted these in Mordheim facebook group. Dont know what to say...
What is it with badly painted models and obvious hairs/dust mixed in with the paint? Just makes them even worse. I did it once whilst rushing a Hammerhead, had to strip it and start again.
I have a soft makeup blusher brush that I use before I start painting a model if it's been sat on the desk for a week.
To be fair it wouldn't look so bad with a little tidying up and a wash.
>the flesh coloured arms
jesus it could be a lot worse but i havent keked this hard in a while
So what! They're all a few pennies worth of plastic shots from a machine and worth whatever value a person assigns to them.
I've never painted before, and I just bought some marines, I'll post them here once I'm done painting them.
I just realized cheap acrylic paint from wallmart doesn't stick to spess mehrines
That's actually a standard terminator captain though. I know the DW carry swords on their belts but so do pretty much all captains from that era.
[spoilerThe invictus guard are Roboute's personal guard right?[/spoiler]
check this out
Buy this exact can. After vigorous shaking, coat one side of your models with light sweeping sprays, let dry for 30 mins, then flip and do the other side.
Save yourself some pain and get good paint, maybe 10 colors from GW/Reaper/Vallejo, plus a pot of nuln oil
This anon doesn't know what he's talking about
It doesn't have to be that any glossy spray will work and any decent painter can do 40k painting with even the paints you can buy at walmart in the craft section...
they're all water based you should be fine
> gets accused of trying to rape all the time
> He allegedly has a 15 year old "gf"
that he gets his mother to help him fuck
> by giving her drugs
> also there was another girl who said similar things
I swear this guy is cringe made manifest and fetal alcohol syndrome
I buy the black of pic related for 50 cents a pop at walmart for basing, and it has been one of the best choices I've made.
Water related, goes on smooth, but dries with enough texture for paint to stick to.
>throwing people's shit
This isn't just irritating neckbeard stuff, this shit just isn't acceptable.
He'll probably/hopefully get his head caved in one day when he does it to the wrong person.
I think the owner of that store should hope that crazy asshole spent enough in his shop to cover the lawsuit when he's found liable that this crazy warham assaulted someone in his establishment, because by the sound of things, that's an inevitability.
NMM can look like crap though.
>painting lighting effects rather than letting the light do the work for you
>just artistic wankery
NMM tends to look great, but only from one specific angle, and then it looks like crap from any other angle. It also hard to do right (and looks terrible if you don't pull it off perfectly), and really time consuming if you're gonna paint a whole army.
And yeah, it's just wankery most of the time.
Haa... Haa... Haa...
YAAAR'HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA ! HOLY SHIT WTF ! AH....
AHAHAHAHAHAH, ÔH MY SIDES, FFS !
It's a fucking turd soaked in a McFlurry with extra topping.
Dude the owner won't ban him. The manager knows he's too stupid to notice that he's using him. He's so gullible that he will spend all of his parents money weekly no joke he literally spent 1,300 on a castle that he won't finish just because the manager said he should >>43464354
>tfw a lot of the mini's in this thread are pretty much the same as yours
I buy exactly that tube of acrylic for my terrain work.
It's fucking garbage.
It doesn't even get good coverage over bases, it's like two or three layers to get full coverage over bases, let alone minis or primer or anything else.
Also, watercolour paints will look like shit and won't even work
One of my first mini was a skelliton I based using shiny black enamel. The next layer, of acrylic white, slip right into the details resulting in the polar opposite of what a skelly should look like
He HAS to take some sort of meds at night, it's the only time I saw his mom actually make him do something. Whatever that may be for, I never asked.
He's a senior in HS and goes up to Lonely looking freshmen girls, gets them to come to his placeand smokes pot with them then takes advantage
of the situation.
He films it apparently to, because when one girl was breaking up with him he threatened to put a video
of them having sex online which is absolutely ridiculous because he would be uploading cp if he did (He's 18 and she was 15) .
Yes we did tell the store manager this who is an ex-cop no less, his response was "Pot isn't a date rape drug."
It's in Texas
Almost happened but whenever he makes somebody mad he will run across the store and stay far away. Nobody has bothered to try chasing him yet.
>primarch of the regular hands legion, Fleshus Handus
I just want to point out something I hope offends you guys.
Every time you post a WIP model that you call "good" because you just fucking dryburshed some color onto a base, this >>43452942 is all I see.
Every time you post a shitty paintjob and then cry defending "good enough" or "tabletopquality", this is what it looks like.
Look, I'm a professional illustrator, so I know a thing or two about learning a skill like painting. I've taught handicap kids in classes before, so I have nothing against people who lack skill. Lacking skill is fine.
Lacking skill and being defensive about it? Go fuck yourself. The second someone defends their shit paintjob, they lose all respect.
The only, ONLY answer should ever be "Yes, I know I suck. I'll work harder to not suck.". Because if you can't say that to yourself, you have no business putting your work out in public.
Ok I'll bite.
You should always put your work out into public view for constructive criticism, no matter your skill level, it's the way we learn.
No matter how good you think your work is, there is always someone better.
I mean, the tiger stripes are quite good, and the paint's within the lines on the guns and that. But, as a whole, it's just baffling.
believing the Holocaust happened
The condescending expression threw me, but otherwise I think I nailed it.
Dry brushed every color but the wash. Does that make me a terrible person
Another from /wip/. It's a good paintjob, but I just have to share it here.
thin your paints, don't thin your paints, Ultimately how you paint your models doesn't matter as long as at the end the model actually looks good. this requires picking a style you are comfortable with and practicing, as well as picking up tricks from other painters and incorporating it into your own.
but the worst paint job I have ever seen I have no photos of, but I can tell you what he did and you can use your imagination:
All he did was took the unpirmed models and some markers, yes markers, and just scribbled the colors onto the models.
It looked just as bad as you could imagine, if not worse.
It looks like the Mechanicus lost track of that Land Raider while building it and it somehow wound up at the Thundercats toy factory.
MY GLORIOUS OVERLORD...
Oh come on anons, surely you've heard of that one spaceyiffs successor chapter the Space Tigers.
I'm still convinced this was painted just to troll people.
99% of the colors are perfectly in the lines.
The rocks in the base are immaculate.
The arms are flesh colored, instantly making it b8.
Those fucking eyes.
It's not bad in technique, but I hate your color choices. Dark purple, dark blue, and black? Maybe it's your camera or the lighting, but it looks like detail is getting lost in all those dark colors.
And >>43469884 and >>43469897 are right, clean up the damn mold lines and fill the gaps. If you're going to take the time to paint, take the time to work on the model first.
I got one
> Gw employee is on lunch break
> we all go to eat somewhere
> Gage follows even though we hate him
> We are sitting at a table about 6 of us talking
> say something funny about midget porn
> I forget why but it was one joke and we moved on
> Gage thinks its hilarious to pull out his phone and googles midget porn
> SHOWS IT TO EVERYONE
> anyone in the restaurant could see
> We told him no joke 14 times to stop
> finally stops when one of us say that hes not allowed to eat with us and hes not funny
> gage looks upset and runs back to the store in tears almost
> nobody cares
> he told the manager that the guy who called him out was the one that was showing midget porn
> manager is pissed but as soon as he hears what really happened he acts like he knew and it was a joke that he was going to kick the guy
> He keeps defending his loaded retard
> Gage goes and hides from the guy he pissed off
not 100% how something like this even crosses a person's mind
Please do, I need more Gage.
If anyone else has wargaming horror stories too, I'd love to hear them.
Before I knew how much of a cretin he was I would let
him in the car with me when we went to go eat or something (since he didn't have his license).
The first, and last time, was when he thought it would be JUST HILARIOUS to start YANKING THE HANDBRAKE
while I was driving while screaming at the top of his lungs "TOKYO DRIFT!!!!!"
He later went and told everybody at the gaming store, including the manager, that "I was drifting in his neighborhood."
Manager looks at me and calls me stupid, even though im telling him what actually happened.
When I was correcting people he would loudly tell me "STFU YES WE WERE DRIFTING!"
He can't even drive his own car and doesn't even want to
Well ok one guy
> Gage got $3,000 worth of DKoK from his mommy
> Still most in boxes unpainted to this day
> Insists that the krieg Are not IG
> He did this because Now ig specific rules don't apply to special snow flake
> What ever nobody wants to play him anyways
> He says he won 80 games this month
> everyone knows hes a liar and a cheater
> Heres how he makes a list
1) Dont read the book your mommy spent $100 on
2) Disregard points and just eyeball it
3) Unbound aegis defense motors and beast hunter shells
4) Always deploy hammer and anvil
5) NEVER let the opponent read your books and look for your made up rules
6) get over defense when you're caught
7) say you mastered your army and say you won
Yes I used to play there and hang out playing some 40k until most of us decided to
avoid that place and play at our FLGS instead. If you wanna know what store.....refer to..
Oh and here is just a portion of his army
Does anyone have a picture of him? .
Also i feel obligated to share some about our LGS autsist
He will literally scram and creech if you kill one of his units and he will start crying and punching himself in the head if you kill more than one unit in one turn. No one likes playing against him because he complains nonstop the whole game that your stuff is "broken or OP" regardless of the fact he sold all his tyranids to play eldar when the new book came out. Anyone care to hear more? i have many stories?
If anybody wants to help get this cancer out of the community, you can send a friendly note to
Since it's already out there which one it is.
>tfw can't paint the faces on my models properly so I just put helmets on all of them
Dark eldar look better with helmets anyway r-right guys?
>have an age of sigmar campaign with pals
> He begs to be part of it
>we accept out of feeling sorry
>the first chapter winds down into a large game
>hes fielding alot of chaos, ive got rats
>our campaign leader tells him theres going to be a roll on turn 3 for a suprise
> turn 3 comes
>campaign leader rolls a 4
>campaign leader deploys around 200 lizardmen behind the autist
>slaughters autist forces in the insueing turn
>Autist starts crying
>everyone leaves room to "smoke"
>come back a few minutes later and hes hitting himself in the face and crying blaming himself and screaming about his Aspergers that dont exist
>i pack my stuff up and wait outiside with smokers
>he approaches us afterwords and tells us it was unfair that we did that
>campaign leader shows me his notes and plot for the campaign

>i start laughing at this
>austist thinks im laughing at him
>runs fulll sprint down the road crying and comes back two hours later and his mom comes in and gets his stuff and leaves.
>mfw when hes 21
Oh fuck, I've been to that store. I don't really go anymore because the Denton GW is slightly closer
and Age of Sigmar has pretty well killed any enthusiasm I have for this hobby, but I always thought that the Preston manager was alright. Guess not.
Oh well. I'll just drive all the way out to fucking Madness Comics and Games in Plano whenever I want to game.
First time I painted a model I think I made it a bit too thin at times. I was downright terrified of having it turn out like that picture. RIP Blood Angels Sergeant, you were only like 90% painted
>bring Lenny to the lake and finish it
Why is that Helbrute from Hive Fleet Behemoth?
It's not objectively terrible until you hear the price.
400 dollars, and he has even more, worse stuff on his ebay page
Should have posted this one as their best example. 100 dollars plus shipping for, uh, "special" Abbadon.
These 3 are perfectly fine TTS miniatures. Not really good, and certainly not perfect but you can see the painter used techniques like edge highlighting and washes.
Nothing against you Anon, but i can't get it in my head why you would stay in contact with a guy like that. Maybe he comes of worse in your stories than he is in RL, but seriously?
This is him right? For once im glad i live upside down
Figures like this always amuse me.
Its like he completed it and thought man, that looks fucking sweet, time to give it the epic basing it deserves!
Then proceeds to put it proudly on display.
One of my first models painted six~ years ago. Painted with shitty Joaan fabrics paint and had no idea what I was doing.
Compared to one of my more recent Grenadiers painted a few months ago. I've thought about stripping down Sergeant Derpface, but he's a good reminder of how far I've come.
It was eventual that I would post here
This is the third guy I painted and the second cadian I did
Not very proud of it but I'm still learning
Wait a second.
I've seen that guy before. Want to say it was about a mont or two ago, had to go down to that GW to get some paints (it was when my normal shop, texas toy soldiers, was moving) he was playing a game with another guy, and while I don't rember seeing anything as bad as you describe, I do remeber that I found him, add and unsettling I guess is the best way to describe it.
But if he's as bad as you describe, I'm glad that preston ridge isn't my FLGS. Honestly you might want to find a different store, becuase DFW ceritanly isn't lacking them
Taken off the FB page this is him.
Pretty much everybody there is awesome except for this one....
This guy just -looks- like a douche; not even the kind of douche that gets pussy, the kind that spits in your drink, blames it on somebody else, and then tries to convince you it was just a joke when you get pissed.
It's incredible how some people just have a face that's so damn punchable. I mean just look at that thing, those expressions, the arrogant smugness. I just want to place my knuckles squarely in the center of his nose. Goddamn.
