hopefully I have a clear path forward.  I guess we'll find out after I repaint the uniform again...

All I can say is good luck. Hopefully this will be the last "tweak" on this project.

Latest version.  Repainted with Badger gloss black primer, then highlighted with a blue black Tamiya mix.  Still more work to be done with a brush, but I think this is more what they're looking for (I hope)!.  I really need to get a better lighting/photo set up!

Progress!  Actually this shot is about a week old.  Spent the weekend shading all the green, as well as drilling and magnetizing him and Anderson.  Green is Reaper Shadow Green and the gold is Scale 75 Dwarven Gold.  I'll try and get better pictures of the current condition.

Thought I'd do some work on the bases after drill, pinning and magnetizing the figures.  Went to mask off the shield and discovered I REALLY should have wiped the base down before priming.  Stripped it all the way down with rubbing alcohol and am letting it dry overnight.  I'll re-prime it tomorrow night.  Sigh.  I am pretty happy with the face.  Painted all with Badger Stynylrez colored primers.  Still have some more work to do on the helmet, but I think I'm going to call the skin done.

Pretty close to being finished with this.  Took a couple of shots with Sir Forscale just in case anyone was curious as to how big he is.  Still need to work on the base and more highlights and shading on the shoulder pad.  Discovered after I got him assembled that I'd misjudged the angel of the head and I need to re-do the highlights on the helmet. Oops!  Still, the end is near!!

Finished the bases for Dredd and Anderson tonight.  Primered with black Stynylrez, then sprayed the Vallejo gold.  Masked the gold and sprayed with Synylrez Grey, then with a random overspray of Polly S Concrete I've had for years.  Washed the gold and spattered them with Liquitex Burnt Umber and let that dry overnight.  Drew on the pavement lines and cracks with colored pencils, then added additional grunge and tonal variation with various Secret Weapon pigments.  Pretty happy with how they look.  Hopefully the client likes them as well!

      Finished Judge Anderson and took some quick photos before packing her and Dredd to go off to the client in the morning.  Need to work on my flesh tones and get some better balanced lighting.  Thought she was looking good and then brought her up and saw what she looked like in sunlight and she's really washed out.  Sigh.  She looks good from a few feet away!  The last shot is the first time I really looked at the two of them next to each other - I hadn't realized how much shorter Dredd is!

      Been working on this guy for a while now and I'm going to call him done now since I have to ship him out.  Old Halcyon vinyl kit of Judge Dredd.  First one of these I've finished.    Primered with Badger Stynylrez paints and all the flesh is Stynylrez.  Green is all Reaper colors.  Gold is Scale 75 shades and I'm not really a fan.  Took about 4-5 coats to get smooth coverage.  I really miss the old Polly S metallics!  Nothing since has come close for coverage and grain.    Base is Stynylrez grey, over sprayed with Polly S Concrete, cracks are all colored pencils.  Gold for the base was Vallejo Metal Color Gold which airbrushed great (I'll have to try brushing it on at some point).  Gold was washed with Liquitex Burnt Umber  artists paints, which was also flicked on the base to create stains.  Grunge and color variations on the base were created with various Secret Weapon pigments.  I needed to push the highlights on the green up a bit, but my lighting here isn't doing me any favors either.  WIP thread can be found here: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/85931-halcyon-18-scale-judge-dredd/

      I'm taking the leap and about to buy my first airbrush for mini painting and was hoping I could get some advice on what to buy. The Airbrushing: compendium has been very helpful and I've spent hours, days, what feels like years researching and I want to pull the trigger... I live in Canada and after ringing around some hobbyshops etc it seems amazon is the best bang for my buck. I have paint and access to a Campbell Hausfeld 2 Gallon Air Compressor (I will purchase another compressor in a few months once I have some more disposable income). My main concerns are does this compressor work with the airbrush listed below, do I need anything else? Heres what I've got in mind:   NEO CN GRAVITY-FEED DUAL-ACTION AIRBRUSH $97.20 CAD Paasche 10-foot Nylon Braided Hose $18 CAD Airbrush Cleaner 4 Kit, Washing Tools - Glass Cleaning Pot etc $22 CAD Vallejo Airbrush Cleaner 85ml $7 CAD   any advice would be appreciated
