How on earth do I reply to comments on my own blog? Doesnt matter how I log in or what settings I change there is no way for me to do it. Very frustrating! I just deletes what I write every time I press publish.
Picked these up at Salute last year, I wanted to try a white scheme again as my previous attempts have been poor. Reading the Eavy Metal paint guide I realised I need to do lots of thin washes to make white work. Its not quite as strong as I wanted, but having used thin washes I can now see how easy it is to get the blending of layers. Doesnt show up well in the photos, but something I will be experimenting more with in the future.
Took a while to assemble the shoulder launchers. Its quite a drab paint job, but this fits in with the movie influence, and probably I took the photo in bad lighting conditions. Not a great technical paint job, but it stands out quite strongly on the table top.
Last year at Salute a bought a box of 5 Soviet Armoured Guard from Westwind. I have finally figured out what I want to do with them. They come with seperate human heads, but thats not what I wanted - I felt its possible to do more with them. So first a bit of miliput and plasticard. Now the in progress paint jobs, I am trying to give a ceramic finish rather than camo. I hope to get these completed soon.
