  1. Thanks! I actually tried some Loaded Brush on it. Surprisingly easy. I don’t know if I actually placed the shading or the highlight in the right way, but I only wanted to sell a vaguely reflective surface. Used some gloss varnish on it and the leather which I haven’t done on a GW mini before (don’t know why, I’d do it all the time on Airfix kits)
  2. I think I get what you mean. Most of the examples I’ve seen of this piece have the mirror painted more like a gem, but I was envisioning more of a diagonal white to dark blue, and maybe back again.
  3. I think reflections of specific things would be a bit ambitious but yeah, I was thinking a vague impression of reflections. I just kind of don't know where to start. A silver base plus glazed lines?
  4. Contrast Paints. How do they work? Every time I start a Cursed City character it becomes my new favourite. Still lots of details to finish on this guy - anyone got any tips for painting the glass of his mirror?
  5. The Ortiz stuff is just like regular tinned tuna in oil. Very disappointing. Try the Sainsbury's stuff I mentioned before, it's a totally different texture, perhaps because they cut the fish differently (it looks like small, loose fillets in the tin. Or maybe that the fish in the tin is quite loose, so it is more coated in the olive oil? I dunno, but it's not like any other tinned tuna I've tried.
  6. I think those look great! And the Red Skull is definitely an improvement - really clean and neat.
  7. The area you say you struggle with (how and where to highlight) is something I also struggled with, and still do. I also found that I’d get a mini looking great with just a base coat and wash, and then make it look worse at the highlight stage. Partly it’s the “fault” of the prevailing GW style of painting which I found challenging to emulate when I was starting out (and also still do!), which is basically: Base Coat Wash Re-establish base coat Highlight Thinner highlight Final highlight The trouble is, doing the above is great in theor
  8. Cool. I shall do a search. I bet Greenstuff World do something. Thanks for the tips!
  9. Can you use that to do foam effects etc, or would it be strictly for clear/coloured water?
  10. Ah, see that’s something I hadn’t considered! I have a vague notion to do a river crossing scene. Well, a stream at least. So like, the mini would have its feet on stones in shallow water maybe.
  11. Does anyone here have any experience of creating water effects for dioramas etc? I’ve got an idea I’d like to try...
  12. Beans are a good way to make a salad feel substantial. I like Borlotti beans as they're not too mushy from the tin, with thinly sliced red onions which I steep in balsamic vinegar. That provides the acid of the dressing. The oil of the dressing is provided by the olive oil from a can of fancy tuna. This stuff is amazing, a world away from regular tinned tuna https://www.sainsburys.co.uk/gol-ui/product/fish-/sainsburys-ventresca-tuna-filets-in-olive-oil--taste-the-difference-115g I drain the beans and add to a bowl, then put the tuna in, oil and all, th
  13. That’s so cool! Lot of mini to paint though!
