    •  Pick one highlight color for each order. It really looks best and is easy to duplicate. Looks good for the hyperpower!!!   Loth
    • My first time with a wet pallet was similar to yours. Like mentioned above get some parchment paper. Also soak your "sponge" till it has a tiny bit of water setting on the top. Then lay your parchment down then you should be good. The first paper I used was good and reusable but didn't transfer moisture to the paints very well.
    • Added a bit more paint over the last couple of days.
    • Frustrated. And as a result, I've put this aside for a bit, even though I know I should just soldier on. 

      The problem is that I didn't get the results I expected from the salt chipping method. 
        It worked, but I miscalculated.  Scale wise, it's probably "accurate".  But visually, you can barely tell. 

      When I did this on my Tycho AFV, I felt I put too much salt down in too few areas of concentration and I didn't really like the results there.  So this time, I sprinkled it more lightly, but it turned out to be too lightly. 

      The other mistake I made here is that I didn't really think about where I wanted the rust to appear.  I concentrated mostly on what I would consider "wear areas" without really thinking about it.  I did this because I was thinking it would save me some effort if I didn't paint the rust undercoat on the whole model. 

      What I learned.  
      - paint the whole darn thing like a rust bucket. 
      - use more salt.  

      I'm glad I decided up front that this was going to be a practice model for an RCon entry. 
    • I just hit Google for Death Eagle Space Marines.  You should get several of the old ads.   Or Death Eagles.   Now that I look a little more closely, in the second picture, the fourth miniature (looks like a female holding a lasgun) might be "Female TPR Bush".   Stuff Of Legend Link, the last image has what might be her. Page took a long time to load (longer than I wanted to wait, anyway), and she appears in several of the images.  Including the third image and next to last.
