Hi @Caedrus!

i’d like to join the enforcer pledge (but hopefully I’ll do way more than this... :D)

my Jan submission will be this Ashes And Dust I have half done since mid December.

Also a skeak peek of my shelf of shame, all of them can be the next months submissions. :D

@Caedrus I really like where you’re going with Killjoy. I look forward to seeing how you integrate your brushwork. Also the NMM sketching is a great idea. 

For those who are airbrushing in colder climates (it’s 9 degrees Fahrenheit outside right now): how do you handle venting?

I think I went a bit crazy with the orange, what with the hat, pants, rust, and Outcasts-edge base.

The contrast on the hat is too much, but I like it anyway.

You did a great job with richness of details. Not last, we have to remember your mini is really small and that is a nightmare for painbting details..... at lòeast for me! :P

Congrats

...and experimented with using an airbrush to start off NMM effects. I was quite pleased with the results!

Great job! It looks like you made use of Colourshift Metal paints (see the link for Colourshift Metal paints)

www.greenstuffworld.com

Some videos at their site document how to use Colourshift Metal Paint.

The final model of my pledge is built and ready to go. I was dreading putting this one together but it was surprisingly easy to build

Here's where I'm at with the 3 Death Marshals. Almost done, I think I just need to work on the flames a bit more, any suggestions on what I could do to improve them would be greatly appreciated

As flames they seem a bit on the flat side. Lighter lights and darker darks would sell the effect better I think.

Yep I agree, the flames are actually a bit darker than in the picture. I think I'm gonna add some glazes to darken them down a bit more then bring up the highlights to a white

For flames it's important that you highlight "in reverse" to make 'em look right. Flames burn hotter near their source so the highest points of the sculpt will be the darkest. The brighter the crevices, the hotter the flame.

@Athiko did you see what you have done!? Now @misterfinn is burning his kitchen again! Stop giving excuses to this pyromane :)

@misterfinn You may hate the sculpt, but how you painted it turned him amazing! I love the subtle green hightlight.

Claiming a Freikorps Engineer for 6 SS.

I dislike that mini because it doesn't fit the Freikorps aesthetic as much as I'd like, but gotta say your paintjob for the group saves a lot in that regard.

Sculpt style aside, fantastic painting👍

Hello,

I'm considering using lichens (from The Army Painter or other company) to finish working my Bad Ju-Ju.

Just out of the box lichens look fresh and wet, so i fear they will dry overtime when applied over models and bases and I expecially fear their aspect and colour could change with the drying process.

Any suggestion, tip or comment as regard?

Thanks in advance.

Like the way you model looks rising from the base. Very well done!
