  1. A new miniatures game based on the Marvel license is due out later this year. It's being released by a new company called Atomic Mass that would appear to be a sister company of FFG and made up of former Privateer Press staff. They will be made from hard plastic which makes them substantially more interesting to me than the KM superheroes so fingers crossed I'll pick up some new work from this. https://www.beastsofwar.com/featured/atomic-mass-marvel-crisis-protocol-miniatures-game/
  2. Maybe. I just wanted something different from the plain grey I normally do.
  3. Here are some infinity models I painted for myself. I was focusing on having fun mostly and using simple techniques to add detail and character. Pretty pleased over all considering how easy they were to paint compared to the other models I've done of late.
  4. It's from GT Studio Creations and is 70mm scale, though it stands at 110mm.
  5. Here are some models I've painted for a clients' necromunda collection. I tried to play around with recreating different materials.
  6. AK Interactive's ultra matt varnish is what you want. It has a low viscosity so is easy to apply either with a brush or airbrush and the finish leaves no shine without dulling the colours.
  7. I doubt I'll bother with the contrast paints. I'm still learning how to get the best results from scale colour and warpaints, adding another set of paints with very different characteristics seems like an unnecessary distraction regardless of whatever benefits they may offer.
  8. This seems more of a demonstration of Latham's skill than showing any unique properties of contrast paint. There are nmm guides in the scale 75 books which aren't too different.
  9. I'll buy a few to try out but I'm not sure I want to switch to a totally different painting method. Depending on how well they can be applied over regular paints (especially scale color) I might use them for glazing.
  10. I tried a couple of different sizes a while back. They weren't the best synthetics I've used, princeton's heritage and velvetouch series are what I'd recommend.
  11. I'll buy a few pots to experiment with and see how they work.The shading looks a bit too dark and dirty for me, but at this stage it's not possible to tell what different effects can be achieved with those paints. I am somewhat interested to use them as a quick basecoat, though any benefit might be negated by an apparently long drying time.
  12. If this is going to be something as mundane as a new type of paint product I'll guess it's a reactivable paint like the wilder aqualine or washable paints from ammo. But rather than designed for creating weathering effects these will come in shade and highlight colours.
  13. What is the quality of the models for these cmon games? I haven't backed a big box kickstarter in years because I didn't enjoy painting the models, but I've been thinking about having a big project to work on. I know mantic have improved a lot with their miniatures, well with walking dead and hellboy at least, and I've seen quite a few painted examples of the fantasy zombicide that look very detailed.
  14. yeah, but what colour wheel? the matrix angle hints at something based more on a scientific understanding of colour perception rather than the mainstream artist wheel.
  15. I don't bother with pinning for anything other than large heavy models. Instead I use my hobby knife to score the surfaces to be glued which increases the surface area and the strength of the bond. For applying the superglue I first put the glue onto a metal dental pick then use that to apply glue onto the model. All of these tips and more can be found in a video I made
