Adepticon 2010: Day 1, Class 1



My first class at Adepticon was "All the Small Things: Freehand Designs" by James and Cathy Wappel. As inspiration James brought an Inquisitorial Land Raider he painted.  Needless to say I wasn't painting Land Raiders like this by the end of the class, but I learned a lot.  There's just something different about putting paint to model while you are being explained the technique to make it sink it.

And your Friday Quick tip straight from James Wappel: mix in a little on a near-colored GW wash to your paint to get better flow and increase drying time.

  1. So envious of those classes you're getting to go to! The Wappel's do amazing stuff.

  2. Jim and Cathy rock. I love seeing people I admire in the hobby sharing their techniques freely (like Tim Lison and Jeremie Bonamant Teboul)

  4. That model is painted so well it makes me weep. I wish I had skills even close to that. Makes my efforts look like what a kindergartner's scribble is to an original Van Gogh .

  5. I am one of the lucky owners of a model painted by Jim (an Eldrad model). All i can say is that pictures do not bring ever justice to his art.
