  1. Words fail me. Scum, just utter scum. Why can't they just keep their hands to themselves? They've clearly got skills, why not use them legitimately? Glad to see you've kept your chin up, mate. Dltbgyd...
  2. That chrome is fantastic! Great work. I'm looking forward to the next one.
  3. I suspect most modelers on here have preferences, but I'd say there isn't a single 'best' paint range. Manufacturers are constantly chasing new trends, but it doesn't make their old paint redundant, much less 'bad'. Our hobby is an art form and like all art, the beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Some like an ultra realistic look, some prefer cartoonish finishes. Whatever floats your boat is the 'best' effect and what you use to get there is your own, correct, choice. For recommendations I'd say go with what you've got for now. You'll soon figure out what's important to you.
  4. I'm fascinated by them. Any idea where the best place to buy them in the UK is? A figure painting review: https://youtu.be/P0bAxugt2zQ
  5. Hey, happy new airbrush! Good job on the speeder, it's nice to see something different done with one of them.
  6. Yep, that used to happen to me all the time. It's worse with the wife- I keep on finding expensive tools stuffed into the nearest drawer after she's finished bodging another quality repair around the house. I wish she'd just ask me- I usually have to fix whatever it is she's been working on anyway...
  7. Ok, I'm a bit late to the party on this one, but maybe you're getting ready to replace the replacement brushes? I'm a bit of a brush collector, with an embarrassingly large hoard now, most of which are still pretty serviceable. I use synthetic brushes for oils and metallics. They destroy sable! I usually buy Winsor and Newton Cotmans, but I'll probably try something different when my current ones give up the ghost. I have various stiff natural hair brushes for things like drybrushing and placing basing materials on miniature bases. No particular preferenc
  8. Those are fantastic, Saturn! Do you mind if ask what photo editing software do you use?
  9. Actually, it's the wee green bottle that I like best. It's just so incongruous and ordinary, it really brings the hideous, plague ridden beast and rider into stark contrast with the mortal realm. Painted to perfection!
  10. Size 6?! Wow... Fantastic work Sean, that's a cracking mini. Size 6...
  11. I'm not a ship modeler, but I was a sailor. Pusser's paint tends to streak and run in a powdery, very light grey colour. Salt, sun and grey, white and black paint over gently rusting steel leaves an off white residue. I don't know what you're using for reference shots, but if the effect you're after doesn't come with using white paint, perhaps consider slightly darker tones? Vallejo 'insignia white', if you've got it, has a very faint grey/green tone to it. Just a thought...
  12. Hi Sjsald- how did you get on? My advice would have been get a decent brush, use whatever type of paint you're using on the 'plane and give washing and highlighting a go. With paint- any paint- the most important thing is consistency. I paint 28mm minis in the main. I prefer thin paint and have a lot of airbrush paints because they come in the consistency I like right out of the bottle. Mileage varies, a lot of very good painters prefer much thicker paints and tend to paint more than one colour at a time, blending them together as they go. Have a play around, see what y
  13. Oooh, I like that! I wonder if I could get Frontier to do something similar for my Type 10?
  14. Well, that 'for the greater good' strapline is suspiciously close to the modus operandi of the movement that believes 'all within the state'. I mean: "(the T'au ) conception is for the State; and it is for the individual in so far as (s)he coincides with the State, which is the conscience and universal will of (the T'au) in their historical existence". -attr Aun'O B'n Eto M'soul'ini, M02.
