I was going to get the Vallejo Model Air, but these were almost twice as much paint (30 ml vs 17ml) for close to half the price ($145 vs $269).
The only negative things I’ve heard is they dry on the tip a little faster, but I can always drop a little retarder in.
Got a new battle mat in, it looks killer. I think I finally have a good landscape to field the DA/Chaos from the DV set!
Found 3 boxes of storm claws at my FLGS today (and for $90 each!). Kept all the wolves and sold everything else. I made $400 and got to keep 15 space wolf terminators, 30 marines, one special edition wolf lord and a copy of the 7th mini rulebook for free! Win.
Looks like I just started a new army.
So I started a Tau army, and I got this Hammerhead off ebay. I really like the chopped up camo style Tau paint, so I did it in a combination of purple/greys. I started with a white primed model.
Next I took some electrical tape and I cut lines into it to make the shapes I would use as masks.
There are three layers of paint colors for this technique, and they have to look good together. I picked three colors that were subtly different. Ulthan Grey, Slaanesh Grey, and Warpfiend Grey (Citadel Paints).
I decided to go light to dark, so I sprayed Ulthan Grey first, then after it dried, I put some of the electrical tape masks on the model.
After the mask was on, I sprayed the middle color (Slaanesh), let it dry, put more mask bits on the second layer, and sprayed the third color (Warpfiend).
After the third layer dried, I removed all the tape, and the camo print was revealed. It turned out to be killer. I intended it to be more grey and less purple, but when I finish it with washes, then I’ll tone it down.
It’s a cool effect.
My first attempt at sculpting (with sculpey). I made some terrain of an old statue. I boiled it after sculpting. Then I based it on foam core. I brushed PVA glue on it and sprinkled rocks on, then I primed it all and added sand and flock after drybrushing a few shades of grey. It came out good I think.
GREAT use of green stuff in this Dreadknight conversion. I really want to do something similar to this. My DK is too wicked to look like a headless helicopter dad lugging an armored infant in a baby bjorn papoose.
He’s got a gatling gun and an incinerator for god sakes.
