  1. IPA is also used and what I would recommend for stripping most photo resins, although you may find it strange on some castable or flexible ones in which case you may be better re printing. Please Do NOT use 99% IPA in an ultrasonic its extremely flammable and most ultrasonic cleaners have a heating element. Unless you want your house to be a bbq.
  2. The advise these guys have said is great, also don't feel you have to do whole stages at once after you main basecoat it may be easier to do one leg or wing it at a time to break it down into more manageable and interesting chunks. Will look forward to seeing it when it's finished!
  3. Hi, Guys, I have done a quick review of a portable paint storage solution, this bag goes with me everywhere! Check out the video below. https://youtu.be/EXJjcYocj1E

  6. sorry for the late reply, I completed these a while ago. The customer included his own 3d printed pieces too. Hope you guys like them :D
  7. wow this is epic makes me want to play COC again
  8. So I started this story quite a while ago as part of an adventure module I was working on, for a yet be announced game I was working on. It is a dark fantasy setting that is a twist on some of our own history. Its still a work in progress but would appreciate and C+C which may lead me to add more to it in the near future. After the First Crusade recaptured Whiteburn in 0859MD, many pilgrims travelled to visit what they referred to as the Holy Places. However, though the city of Whiteburn was under relatively secure control, the rest of Outremer was not. Bandits were
  9. @Froggy the Great I don't have any close-ups with me but could try and grab some late. The Lorry itself is from a Hotwheels transport set. I replaced the wheels with some resin ones. The front scoop was made with some plasticard for attachment structure and resin parts. a magnet has been embedded on the bonnet to affix weapons. There's also a magnet on the top of the cabin. I have magnetised several pieces or resin or plasticard scrap which you can see on the roof. It also has an aerial made with a thin piece of wire that also magnetised too. (I have to take it off in death races a
  10. Had a quick search on the forum with no luck. But I have a commision coming to paint the entire starcraft board game. Has anyone got experience with it or got any pics?
  11. This is looking really great, I love the colour on the scales. As for the eyes maybe you could do it so they appear to glow like in some of the artwork?
  12. @Glitterwolf Converting them is definitely one of my favourite aspects. I'm not a fan of assembling multi-part minis, even though its something I can do. But being able to convert it so you have a piece that is totally unique is one my favourite parts of this hobby. The bottom car, for example, is a real mod podge of bits. The gun is a housing from a bot from Infiniti, Styrene rod for the barrels itself. The bonnet scoop is all green stuff, mesh from kitchen sieve, gas barrel from flames of war tank. the top section is the centre of dreadnaught sarcophagus with the writing scra
  13. Thanks, @Glitterwolf it's a great game. and the models (toys) are cheaper than chips!
  14. Gaslands is a tabletop game of post-apocalyptic vehicular mayhem. With fast and cinematic rules, it is designed to be played with toy cars, https://gaslands.com/ Here are some of the teams I have made for the game Including a War Rig that can be used in select scenarios. All vehicles have been magnetised for a variety of weapons options. They were made using Hot Wheels or Matchbox cars with added resin parts or greenstuff work. As for painting some are complete strip and repaint where others I have attempted to keep the original paint job intact whilst painting the details typically misse
  15. I use Garfys geta grips. It comes with a variety of adapters to hold your models base in place and a cork for use with pinned models. https://taleofpainters.blogspot.com/2018/08/garfys-get-grip-is-back-and-better-than.html The image below is from Garfy Himself, not mine,.
  16. Thanks Redd, its just following simple techniques and remembering to take my time. anyone can do it with a little bit of patience and practice :D Thanks, @EldritchEladrin it's from the Village Attack board game, he's a wicked mini.
  17. Using an airbrush I usually have to use multiple coats of Vallejo matt to kill the gloss coats. Something I regularly do as I usually use oil washes. You will probably find that a satin varnish will have the same protection as a gloss in the future they should be easier to matt coat after that. When I could get hold of Liquitex matt I did find it left a matter, (mattyer, more matty what the correct word for that?) finish. If you want super duper matte try - AK Ultra Matte it's amazing just don't try brushing it! @Auberon if you are getting an ai
  18. When I'm busy with commisions I rarely get the time to work on my models any more, so with the conquest magazine coming out having the opportunity to only paint a couple of models at once (I'm splitting the death guard with a friend) I decided to subscribe and make a start on an Ultramarines Army. These models are from the first issue. I'm almost done with the reavers and will upload pics soon. These were base coated with an airbrush using Vallejo surface primer black. Then completed with a brush using Reaper MSP Paints. I elected not to use the airbrush for these model
  19. Thank you for all the kind comments. and sorry for the late response been super busy with commisions and even some painting classes
  20. Thanks, Mr Melons, I have the entire range of Vallejo game colour and all game air on model air, a large range of Mig, AK and most of the current GW range too. Just find myself reaching for the Reaper now. Especially for the airbrush which I'm surprised at just a tiny amount of flow improver and feels like much better coverage the Vallejo airs.
  21. Hello all, I'm Adam and have been reading the forums for a while but though now is a good time to join in. I am a commision painter currently from the UK primarily painting GamesWorkshop models but would love to do some more Reaper! After meeting Kit at UK games expo he convinced me to try our reaper MSP paints and I have now been so struck by the quality of them have moved all my painting over to them. I have included some of my work here but you can see some more at www.adampaints.net
