makes me happy you said this mate - thats exactly what i was hoping people would think! all credit to the glory of weathering powders!

Looks good. It really does a nice job of shading the crevice’s as well as provides a nice transition between similar color shades.

I'm awake! I'm awake! ANd I do. I love oil paints...

And San76, you're absolutely right, an oil wash leaves a sheen on the colour that no acrylic can achieve. It's like insta-oomph for any model.

I think when i finihs these guys i mihgt start using oils on figures too..not just vehicles.

Hi everyone,

sorry its been so long between posts.

Recently, Yggdrasil was kind enough to ask me to paint up a Kaptin Badrukk for him. This has been a really interesting project for me, and as it was for someone of Yggs skills - i really tried to put in some effort.

I hope you all like him.

Dear god San! Dear dear god that is simply beautiful! The freehand on the map is simply astounding and the zingy-ness of the blue feather is lovely! I know i say this everytime I comment but you really have outdone yourself again! If your doing commissions I may well have to send you a PM, to actually own something painted to this standard would be...well, incredible.

@thenoobbomb - thanks mate!

@yggdrasil - mate, im stoked you like him. i've sent you an email with the full rez photo. it was a fingers crossed situation for me as i glued him together...will the colours work? will it be too busy. i've really got to start planning these things!

@J-Paint : welcome back mate and thank you for the kind words! hope the doctorate is going well. as for painting..mate..send me a message. i be more than happy to help you out if its something i can do- as long as you know how slow i am (Yggs can testify to this!). glad you noticed the feather..just wanted one thing in there that wasnt totally grimy...it really is bright..but if Badrukk cant be ostentatious..who can?
