  1. Ive seen an absolutley amazing scheme for Emps Children that involves a metallic black to chrome zenithal, with TMM chrome highlights and scratches, patterns etc. then GW's Eidolon Purple clear over the top. and some inktensity violet in the shadows they look amazingly tasty.
  2. @The BagI havent yet. i am on selfimposed no-buying-any-more-paints-unless-i-run-out ban. I have been using a lot of watercolours in my painting recently to great effect. Enamel washes are much more powerful than oil washes (the weathering types from Mig) because they have liquid and solid pigment mixes in so you get a much more interesting and characterful look than plain oil washes which use their main colour pigment only diluted in the spirit medium
  3. Yep. Everyone should embrace enamel washes. Ive been harping on about it for years - you can achieve a very very similar effect with custom oil washes. Any mess that you make with oil washes or enamel washes and panel liner are best cleaned up with an odourless / refined white spirit. i tend to prefer using a wetted brush rather than a Qtip/cotton bud becuase they're softer and finer.
  4. also to add, mine list well over a year of work each
  5. Winsor Newton Series 7 Miniature Size 1. hands down best brush. Mine take an absolute BEATING. enamels, oils, white spirit, acrylic, metallics, it lives on my desk amonst the bits of sprue and tools without a guard, has paint in the ferules and it holds a point like an absolute monster. they have a smaller belly, so the bristles are focused into a point with much more assurance.
  6. this away strip of ours looks dull as fuck. probably a good match
  7. I have a load of their shermans they're beautiful. also the battledamaged tiger 1 and some stugs. here's some early WIPs of them, i cant get to tthe case they're in at the moment:
  8. @RFT have you seen the PeterPig FoW models? i have a bunch of them both Allied and German. they're metal but they're wonderful
  9. i dont think generally people need to have an afinity with the nazi ideology to want to play as Germans in FoW / BA. a lot of the Interest in German forces comes from the technological front with the armour designs and aircraft. The utter bewiderment that someone actually managed to make the Tiger 1 or 2 (and their variants)and get any sort of success in the 1940s is crazy.
  10. @The Bag You're getting there. Do you paint with skin reference photos to hand when you work on skin?
  11. Theres always next season
  12. if its a retake then the same kicker should take the thing too. not "oohh i bottled it, someone else have a go instead"
  13. christ allfucking mighty
  14. down with this sort of thing
  15. did you use Rotate Ion Shields? also knights arent doing too well in this edition at the moment and Crons are getting all the love with properly tuned 9th edition units.
