  1. Hobby Town in Longmont or in Westminster has the Tamyia. I use the Blood for the Blood God from Citadel and you can get that from Karliquins or the Warhammer Store on Baseline. I haven't used the Tamiya Clear Red tho' I own some (not sure where it is). So all I can tell you is the Tamiya paint smells WAY worse than the citadel technical. :)
  2. Ah! You should be able to find what you need in the Vallejo line. Snow Shadow is a very pale blue color. Misty Grey is a very light grey. You could substitute black for blue liner. Not sure about what else. Try a conversion chart maybe?
  3. If you want grey-white, I'd follow a pattern like Cyradis suggested. Base coat with Snow Shadow (if you want the blue-grey) or Misty Grey Shade it with a thinned mixture of Rainy Grey and some blue like winter blue or templar blue. Or a grey brown like driftwood brown Add some blue liner to whatever your darkest shade color is and put that in where the hair meets the head highlight back up starting with your misty grey/snow shadow and go to pure white. Make sure your pure white highlight is small. The trick to step 4 is to thin your paint so it's easier to blend, but to wipe most of the paint off the brush to give yourself more control. The other trick is to start the misty grey/snow shadow only thinned a little and add more water as you highlight further. This helps you blend the darks to the lights cuz the thicker paint covers better. The trick, overall, for this, is to keep your shades off your highlights. This will help keep the whites whiter with less work.
  4. What's bugging you about the hair?
  5. The green is looking so good. Love the way the cloak is turning out. Thinking of doing OSL from the Skull? Also, I can't remember, is this Bones or Metal? Either way, I have some suggestions for the Scythe, but material matters.
  6. Lockhart TX has amazing BBQ. :)
  7. So yeah... looks like I have a room at the Hilton Garden and am looking for someone to split costs. Iffen you're interested, PM me. We can discuss. I like to paint after the classes are over. I don't have my kids around so I try to get as much done as possible. :)
  8. Is this the thread to find roommates? I may need one. It depends on if a local friend decides to go or not.
  9. You'd think they could provide some sort of microfiber or auto heat generating clothing in the 40th millennia but nooooooo.
  10. I don't know if I'd go and correct it, this is show off after all. I really like the figure. I'd just adjust on the next figure. That's just my personal philosophy, however, so do what you will. :)
  11. I like the verdigris on the hat. I think the blue-green was a good choice. The highlights should be brighter on the top of his sleeves than at the bottom.
  12. Good point! I missed that step. Thanks for the heads up.
  13. I've been working on some bigger projects and have been really bogged down with some of them. I decided to test out some snow following one of Mr. Justin's two minute tutorials. In order to give it a fair test, I painted up a Vahallan Heavy Bolter team. I did this to work on some leather texturing techniques I've been trying to perfect. So a lot of different things going on in this piece here. My color scheme is roughly following the Stalingrad army. I've been working off one of the Osprey books about the battle and have found it very useful. I'm pretty pleased with the results. The snow looks fantastic (I think anyway, I'm biased). I need to remember to spray seal the figures before I put them on the base.
  14. If Huey Lewis weathered miniatures....
  15. Cool! I'm hoping to have Kyra and some Mouslings. I've been working on some Imperial Guard so I can mess around with basing for The Defeated. Might bring them as well.
