    Cool, thanks Cocky. Looking forward to giving this a go. Highlighting will be interesting

    This looks awesome, Cocky, thanks for sharing. Would I be right in thinking you thin your colours down a fair amount after the drybrush over the primer so it acts as a kind of pre-shading? I recking I might give this a go on my next round of Infinity minis. The Giraldez 'four airbrush stages' are great, but quite time consuming.

    I use these, ad the single draw option for the bigger minis: https://www.bunnings.com.au/oates-medium-twin-translucent-horizontal-storage-stacker-drawers_p2582391

    Welcome back. This doesn't answer your questions, but me and some other guys out together a fairly comprehensive wiki on another site for new painters. I can't link it now as I'm on holiday, but I will when I get back. It's helped a few people along. Also, speaking of holiday, I'm currently touring the south island of new Zealand, soaking in as many Lord of the rings film scenes as I can. Which is a long way of saying "I'm getting the new lotr game when I get home."

    The extra time you're spending on this guy is really showing. Great work.

    That's exactly what I was thinking when I started back eigh years ago or so (god, that long?). I started out with five paints, some cheapo brushes and a bunch of second hand POS GW stuff. It literally is just putting time into painting and I guarantee you get better.

    Knocking it out of the park as usual, Cocky. Was that Lobo a commission? How much would you charge for something like that? Further down at my level, I threw a few more things onto this Nisse to call it finished for the table.

    Yeah, CB's size creep is weird. It's down, then up again. I use the first edition Uzia McNeil as a Volunteer and she's nicknamed Brienne of Dawn because she's so ****ing big compared to the 2nd ed Vols, and even to the 3rd ed ones.

    Because I have the attention span of an ADHD-riddled 7 year old, I just realised that I only have ten PanO models in bare metal left, and just a few more than need touching up to have a fully painted PanO force. First up, 15 minutes to paint the Magsiter from the Military Orders starter set as a Teuton to give Brother Josef a friend:

    Very nice, JoeK. Love the blue shading on the pigs. It really draws the eye. Awesome. I love the missions in the two players sets. They're well laid out in how they introduce people to the core concepts. Having said that, Mayacast - the biggest Infinity podcast - had an episode this week on making the rules more logical. Not streamlining as such, but removing some of the bloat. One of the things I love aout Infinity is the rules complexity, but sometimes it does go too far. The numerous close combat special rules and embedded special rules were discussed at length, and I think they nailed it. If N4 is on its way (and it has been five years now) I hope Corvus Belli were paying attention. Also, I got accepted to the Malifaux 3rd ed beta. I can share that in order to find games, but everything else is shtum.

    Actually, does anyone have a resource to show the equivilants between GW / Valljo and Scale75? The one I use doesn't have Scale75.

    I'm assuming Giraldez is doing the big releases, boxes and highly anticipated models and the like. While the less demanded and single mini stuff is being handled by others. Unfortunately the next YJ release isn't till October with the Celestial Guard resculpt.i reckon Giraldez will do those, but it's a few months away. But if I were to guess I'd say they're going to continue with his method in his two books.

    Ah, now you mention it in see what you mean. It's more vibrant like the old.models. Maybe it's a different painter. I know Giraldez doesn't only do Infinity models anymore and CB have had to bring in new painters to pull up the slack.
