Use this thread to show off your washing and drybrushing skills on the rat from Kit 1!

my attempt at the rat, I didn't notice the flashing on the spine until I was mostly finished :blink:
and I washed the #$@% out of the stones but i think due to my thin primer they stayed a little too shiny (part of it's the light I was under)

Get thee to the light box thread! No excuses for bad photos. I spent about ten bucks on the box and my camera is a 2005 point & shoot.

Yeah, could be the thin primer. I went with the included brush-on primer just to try it out, but only used a single coat.

Eww! Gross! (And therefore well done!)

My fiancee loved it....but she has an odd fetish for the plague. Worrisome, really.

edit: and I see now I forgot to go back and drybrush the grass. Woops!

I used the included primer and I was having to put it on REALLY thick to get any kind of coverage as it was Very watery out of the bottle, and following the instructions exactly lead to a couple of frustrating hours when i was just pushing around white tinted water on the rat.

also I concur Photos are the next thing I need to improve on.

You need to REALLY shake the primer. Wren suggested storing it on its side!

As soon as Wren posted that, I got up and went to my desk and turned the bottle on its side :)

Likewise! ::D:
Happiness is just a word to me
And it might have meant a thing or two
If I'd known the difference
Emptiness, a lonely parody
And my life, another smokin' gun
A sign of my indifference...

-Seatbelts, "Gotta Knock A Little Harder"

I pretty much agree with everything that Last Knight said.

Yes, Reaper brush-on needs to be shaken extra well. If you do that, it works fine. That's really the only kind of primer I use anymore.

I like these rats. They are quite gross looking, just as they should be. More!

2014 Progress: 7 minis painted!
