    Nice photos, @Glitterwolf! Is that the Red Arrows I see?

    Well, that was unexpected Does it mean that you have a higher chance of paying import fees? Also congrats on getting the airbrush! If you don't have any, I'd advise picking up some Vallejo Flow Improver. I was on the verge of selling my airbrush set up before I started using it. This fellow is REALLY annoying, but his airbrush tips are really, really good and worth suffering all the nonsense he spouts. The actual good stuff starts at 2:40 https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=rLeWGzJbHzI
  3. First, congrats on getting that dragon- it's absolutely gorgeous! I didn't back the kickstarter due to lack of funds and I really regret it now. I like the idea of using orange/red for the horns and crest. Possibly dark red at the base and lightening up to orange nearer the tips. Kind of like it was echoing the flames coming from the mouth. Of course, this is probably because I'm slightly obsessed with doing flame effects on half my minis

    Well, that was horrible. I've been following a nestcam of Treecreeper chicks for the last few weeks and they were very close to fledgling. I say 'were' because half an hour ago a woodpecker discovered the nest and is in the process of taking the entire brood I know it's nature's way, circle of life, blah, blah, blah, but I really hate woodpeckers at this particular moment.

    Made myself a turntable

    That is amazing
  7. I've bought a fair amount of rust/verdigris effects, but I've found that I get better results with dull orange and turquoise paints. I'm always wary of using too much as well, to the point that it's barely noticeable like on this Nighthaunt. All the weathering and rust also contributed towards my abandonment of my skaven army. I finished 120 of the 400 clanrat horde and gave up to maintain my sanity. That's why I don't use them, I don't seal my minis so the weathering would eventually fall off.
  8. From what I understand, it was originally supposed to be a 'what if the fascists took over the US?' scenario. Not surprisingly, there was no funds for that so it became aliens taking over instead. My favourite campy/fantasy tv show is The A Team and I'll fight anyone that says its not fantasy Its certainly not set in any version of reality that I know. I used to watch reruns of it as a kid and it gave me very odd ideas about how things like physics/guns/America works. Two words: cabbage cannon

    I love her! She looks far too cute to be a ruthless murder machine

    Ah heck, I'm so sorry to hear this *sends hugs*
  11. I think it's either painting or basing. If it's going well, I find painting incredibly relaxing. I've been messing around with wet blending lately and I've had fairly promising results. I have, but I wasn't that happy with all those browns and greens-I had no idea if I was painting them correctly. It was for someone else, they seemed happy with them At first I was going to answer with an "Of course not, I'd never do such a thing!" Then i remembered the 4 Warmahordes forces, 7 Warhammer armies, the Confrontation stuff and the 3 40k forces. It's all neatly packed away, waiting for me to get my army painting mojo back. This might take some time......

    The Instar Colour Flip/ Interference and Greenstuff World Chameleon ranges could work. Both ranges are two tone paints that need a fair amount of layers to get the proper colour shift look. They look distinctly glittery at one or two layers, which might suit your requirements.

    Sounds like time for a short video about the deadliest feline in the world https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=s6d9rqhivQY (Trigger warning, no blood, but a bird has a bad day)

    Dance of Death

    I managed to get some painting time in the last couple of days. I'm slightly regretting going for the high contrast look on Ember, but he's starting to look a bit more respectable now. Ember got a partial layer of Brilliant red and Frost got a 1:1 mix of Snow Shadow: Blue Flame Next up was Sunrise Orange for Ember and Blue Flame for Frost. The next steps should include yellows for Ember and Whites for Frost. Then I have to decide how I'm going to tackle the wings. I'm currently considering a blotchy pattern, but that might change. I think this photo shows Ember better. Thanks for looking! C&C always welcome
