  1. I had this happen a long time ago with a blue paint. I ended up stripping mine because the crackling effect carried through to every layer I put on him, even with thick paint like 1to1. I am now curious if a blast of clear coat would have sealed off the cracks though, and just add another layer of the basecoat instead of stripping.
  2. Thanks again guys, and thanks for looking. Brushmaster, yeah, it could use a ton more highlighting and shadows on the red. To be honest I sorta gave up on it after painted the bat thing on his back, and did the coverup. Occasionally I can put down some very good lookin red, this wasn't one of those occasions.
  3. for the grey metal paint black, so you can still kinda see the primer under neath. stormy gray/london gray Rainy gray pure white. Brown metal washed black then completely filled over with mahogony brown snakebit leather amber gold pure white
  4. That's a really good job on this one. I like how you did the face, darklining features isn't really my style, but it looks really nice on your mini. She came out looking very girly with the colors you chose, and it's fitting.
  5. They look pretty good! I bet she really liked them. In all the foliage, the little rocks look sorta like flwers to me.
  6. That's pretty good. Everything is very clean on him, especially the black on white. Good choice of color.
  7. That's not bad. I really like the pose she's in, looks to me like she's gettin ready to hit something really hard.
  8. Thanks guys. Yeah, the face came out kinda flat. I was trying to get it even more so though, I think his smile lines are too dark, as well as under his lip,(shoulda went with a pinkish gray color for shadows). I was going for the super pale, posessed, evil, stay in the dark all the time, just come out to kick some goodie two shoes bootie!! :) Thats why his pupils are huge also... alot of time in the dark. Something else I just realized, I didn't go back after to polish up the darklining. The nmm did go on very fast indeed. From scraping off what few mould lines there were, to putting on the clear coat it was about 6 hrs or less.
  9. You did a beautiful job on her.
  10. Tried messing with metallics yesterday, got tired with it so went to nmm today. Didn't really like the origional mace, so swapped it out with a nefsokar one (couldn't get origional to go straight enough). I think It would look cooler if it as lit up like a lantern or something magical. The base is not done of course, I don't really know if I want to grind it off to use the base I made or try and incorperate it into one, if I grind it I'll have to make him a new foot, it's why I'm hesitating. He had a bat looking thing on his cape back, painted over it though, and it still kinda shows through. Meh, he's done though :), for now. EDIT)02569, Vlad
  11. A sheet metal worker standing at his bench with a pair of bulldog snips cutting out a pattern. He'd have on carharrt's, a tee underneath and boots. Maybe a secondary figure with him, his apprentice, standing/leaning on the table trying to learn what his journeyman is showing him. An iron worker kneeling, torching out something. Flames would be coming out of the end of the torch, and he'd have to have on his goggles, not a welding hood, and a welders type hat/cap. He'd also have on welding gloves and the leathers. Modern real life working folks.
  12. Sebastien Marchal 2000 golden demon france second place diorama Google image search, golden demon diorama, the one I think our looking for is the thumbnail. Jeremie Bonamants golden demon website is whare it says pics are from. Hope that's the one you wre looking for :)
  13. Actually , I think it is a pic of a space marine in red armor on the front. He has gold eagles or sumthin painted on his shins. Also, now that I think I remember the cover, Ithink may have the book. I'll look tomorrow.
  14. It is in the golden demon book, reads about the trophy, contest, sword etc. The last couple of pages talks about jon blanch and has a... Inquisitor?? he painted. The book shows winning entries of years past. I believe it has a pic of golden demon trophy on the front. Lettering is in a gold colored inlay. I can't remember what the book is called or who puts it out though A couple/few years ago I was flipping through the book, that's the best I can remember. If it helps anyone else ring a bell on the diorama has dwarfs digging toward it, the skeles are digging too.. led by a necromancer. Humans are coming down from above and goblins are sneaking behind them, to attack. candels on rat man heads.? I'm not positive, but I believe every one of the races represented is holding a treasure map. All of the races are about ready to break ground on the treasure at the same time. Hope this helped you out a bit
  15. Not bad man. Very nice job painting and highlighting the orange shirt and the lady's orange micro swimsuit thing. Her white shirt came out pretty nice too.
  16. Not too shabby for a quickie. On occasion the minis have sorta a film on them.. oil? Anyways, in my experience it can help to wash them off before you prime them. The ones that this did this to me on, if I am remembering correctly, dried with kinda a .... crackly effect and it carried through to the paints I was using. I agree with Dargin about darklining.
  17. Nice paint job. The wine/red you chose to paint this came out very fitting.
  18. Awesome job on the Slithe. Their paint job is really good, escellent job on their teeth. I don't really know what the infantryman uniform looks like but to me the colors look really good on these guys.
  19. Thanks again guys, both links are very helpful. Nice job on the lich, the sword came out really neat.
  20. Thanks guys. Heck ya, that'd be a good friday night thing to go rent a couple shows. She's not really standing in the lava, shes gonna be on a piece of cork board right next to it though I'd guess about 3/16 to 5/16" in real distance. I'll put a quickie up on here this weekend if I can scrub all the paint off of her, check out the link, and a movie or two. If it comes out good show off if not back in here :)
  21. 14025.. Kyla merc solo. Werner klocke.
  22. Very nice on the cobra on the stick. Awesome idea with the teaser of the photo.
