Thanks for the Feedback, it is definitely keeping me motivated
Tael, the steps for each section are below, though the first 2 steps are for the Forge World sections only, if its just GW plastic sections you can start a step 3:
1. Resin bath time- soak the tile in warm (not hot!) water with washing up liquid and scrub. I use an old electric toothbrush and a kitchen scrubbing brush. This is to give it a really good clean and make sure any residual mold release agents are removed.
2. Initial undercoat - I use a 'Halfords' Car Primer Grey (this is what Forge world use themselves) (basically a budget matt car primer). The reason for this is; as its resin the solvent content in GW primers is too low and can result in the paint not adhering to the model and can flake off. The car primer has a higher solvent content so sticks to the resin better.
3. Straight Chaos Black Spray Undercoat.
4. Caliban Green - spray or watered down and applied with a roller.
5. Corax White Spray undercoat - 'Ghosted' (spray from 2x the recommended distance), as many layers as you like to build up the white in places with green showing through in others.
6. Paint the details - obliviously lots of stages here!!!
7. Careful 'Ghosting' of corax white spray to soften the edges of details e.g. earth sections, and give a light snow dusting in places.
8. Flock snow areas with Woodland scenics snow flock.
9. Add realistic 'snow mush' (Water, effect, PVA, white paint and snow flock), on selected areas e.g, on top of fortifications and some edges.
As an update scatter terrain is coming along nicely, Photos are of the 99% complete fuel dump (just needs snow mush added, but I will do that in bulk over a lot of terrain pieces at the same time).
As always, comments, suggestions and questions welcome.
