A painting & hobby Blog for the less than perfect.
I like seeing how this is coming together. How long did it take? Also love how the primer says 'extreme danger'. Excited to see the next stages now :D
Thanks! I'd say no more than about 7hrs. It was 30-60 min a night over the course of a week. Yeah, now that you mention it that primer looks very exciting!!!!
I admire your tenacity in putting this little diorama together. So far for me, a 'diorama' consists of putting some fake grass on a base. :)
Nah I don't believe that. I've seen your stuff ;)
Lol ... you must have me confused with my alter ego ... 'Mr.Testing out some water diorama but not really creating anything of worth'. ^_^ Seriously though, I am still thinking of how to put together a water diorama that would look cool. The mind is willing but the hands don't yet know what to do! :)
Sweeeeeet. Really digging how they're coming together, man! Keep up the great work!
Just listened to Helion Rain couple of days ago (inspired by your previous post - my wallet cursed you;)) There are a couple moments that can inspire a great duel scene.. Anyways the foundations look great, can't wait to see some paint on them :)
Thanks, I love how in the books a squad of scouts could take on a lictor with one casualty, but in game if you tried that they would just end up as a nice light snack ~sigh~ It does make for a cool scene though ;)
Hiya Zab ... a quick question if you please. Is the Vallejo Matt Varnish in your photos used as a final coat to help protect the paint from chipping?
I use that to seal in the decals once I have them in place and take the shine off the surface from the gloss varnish i put down before adding the decals. It's good stuff, but mainly for display. These guys are gaming pieces so they'll get a couple of thin coats of testors dulcote to protect them at the end. the vallejo stuff can actually rub off if handled too much :)
By all means have your say, but please keep it civil.
