  1. I used Greenstuffworlds ones by brush on this fella here The paint is very thin and goes on easy. I did have to put a lot of thin layers on to get the full effect (5+ I seem to remember!) & it needs to be painted over a gloss black primer ideally.
  2. This is indeed sad news. In my opinion, Ennio Morricone was & is one of the finest film score composers ever to have lived. He had a long & illustrious career spanning many decades from the 1950's to modern times. His music is varied, emotional & very beautiful! As others have said he is probably best known for the "Man with No Name" spaghetti westerns such as "The Good, The Bad & The Ugly" which is also a favourite of mine. My absolute favourite though is the soundtrack to "Once Upon A Time In The West". The main theme is fantastic but also so are the themes for all the main characters in the film, especially "Man With A Harmonica". If you've never seen this film, I'd heartily recommend it!!! R.I.P Ennio Morricone
  3. Many thanks! This may freak you out but "Brain Coral" are an actual organism........
  4. Thanks! I put all of them in there for good measure.
  5. Greetings! Vietnam Zombie with gun from Citadel Miniatures of old! This was a limited release which was linked with both the Chainsaw Warrior board game & 40K Chaos. Thanks for looking!
  6. Greetings! Coral Golem from the "Titans Of The Tide" pack in Bones 3. It was quite tricky trying to determine many of the details on this mini but I got there in the end . Some of them, like the little fish & the sea cucumber were a pleasant surprise! There are areas of UV paint on this mini but I'm afraid I can't get very good pics showing it but the following will give some Idea. If anyone knows how to take a successful pic in low light using a UV lamp, pls let me know & I'll give it a go & post pics. Thanks for looking!
  7. Greetings! FF53 - Ogre from Citadel miniatures "Fiend Factory" range, early 1980's. I'm guessing that for older members of the forums, this old Citadel mini might be considered somewhat of a classic, maybe even iconic? Back in the day, It's imagery definately played a part in getting me into the hobby as a wee lad. I never owned it back then but recently picked one up & painted it up! Thanks for looking.
  8. Very nice! Also, GSW actually produce an acrylic resin powder which becomes pourable after mixing with water. They use it in these type of moulds on their videos. Maybe worth a try? Stronger than plaster & less effort than putty.
  9. I've seen poly fibre being used in modelling to suggest fine spray/mist (which isn't a million miles away from fog) coming off waterfalls. Example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AhG5MXjwU-4 Or, as lexomatic has said, cotton wool teased apart?
  10. He looks fantastic, I love your colour choices! Slow painting is the only way!
