Thoughts?


Yeah, extremely shiny. Is it dry? You maybe need to wait some more time. If not, try to fix it with a matt varnish.

Yeah that's from sitting overnight, about 11hrs of drying. And that's the soft tone wash...... :sad:

Would this be what your are referring to?

I'd have to go with the non-aerosol as shipping spray cans to APO is generally frowned upon, and barely comes through customs :sad: On that note, have to see if this sight even ships to APO.




Bad quality pictures...........I promise to take better ones later, it's almost 3am here. I know I said I didn't like the dipping, but eh...I call them the Swamp Hunters

As promised better(hopefully) pictures. Finishing up some Lizardmen Firewarriors tonight.

Admittedly, I need a better camera as the one I have now just didn't want to seem to focus. Don't know if it was the finish on the models or that the camera is starting to show it's age.

Thinking of going with a scheme similar to this by Dave Taylor but switching out blue to grey, to match my Kroot...their colors have grown on me

During my spraying, I bumped the Repulsive Class Grand Cruiser and the flight stand snapped off...ugh :dead: So now I have to get a pin drill and drill out the flight stand...

Making progress on the Riptide, I love this model...it's a well put together piece.

Tried for a decorative base, hopefully the picture in my head came out well in real life

Had a battle tonight and would do a report but forgot to take pictures, write down notes, just generally lost the plot on this one...ugh. So the highlights were:

Tau and Chaos VS Blood Angels (1k and 1k VS 2k)
We screwed up our deployment after knowing it was a drop pod Blood Angels army
Riptide died to bolters...
Kroot, eh, mostly uselss except for one sniper round hurting a Death Company Dread
Sunshark Bomber came in too late(after the massacre) to really judge how effective it was
(((Land Speeder was a stand-in for the Tetra...slow mail...)))

This is what I remember, and then a few hasty pictures.

If you have any questions let me know and I'll be glad to help explain as much as I remember

I'll let the pictures talk right now, assembly will come later after extensive cleaning and bathing. If you want any pictures of a specific model or part let me know and I'd be happy to oblige.

4 Tetras, Tigershark AX010, Barracuda, and the XV107...

I think it would be a good idea if you paint the bases of the models, it improves the overall look and tone. If you painted a base a dark colour it would contrast nicely with the white making the models stand out more.

Just my opinion.

Congratulations on acquiring such a large amount of resin :P

A quick word of advice on the Barracuda after just having built one - if you are going to have the seeker missile bay as deployable, make sure that you check the clearance before you paint and fit it. After I had painted mine it became too tight to freely deploy and I had to file and sand it down and then repaint it.

Good luck.

Thanks for the advice, and I have honestly not touched the Barracuda or Tigershark yet...saving those for last.




Been without updates for waaaay too long, so a deluge of pictures.

Work in progress for a friend, I kinda hate how detailed/fiddly these snap together Chosen are

Did some more terrain building, but still in an early phase. It ended up being a bit taller than I planned :eek:

So it has 3 floors, rook top, elevator on the side(start turn 1" from and end turn on floor of your choice 1" in), and the icing on the cake is two turret mounted Railguns (operated by the control panel at users BS).

Hope you enjoy and as I work more on it I'll post updated pictures.

Need the flash to show the elevator set-up before painting

And my storage/display area

Some more painting tonight, no terrain

Subtle, dirty, limited colors. But I like it...they shouldn't stand out or draw the eye
