Thanks, Me too. I know how i want it to come out , though i dont have experience in the department on weathered/dirty IG tanks , fortunately ive taken to the idea of enlarging my DKoK and using my Sororitas as more of a bolster than a sole force alone as i always liked that about them since 2nd ed. Ive got a couple Leman Russ & 3 Chimera's to practise on with extra crafty bits like netting / dried grass tufts for desert camo ( Armageddon themed force)

I happened across this tank commander on the net tonight which i believe is discontinued & a recast but would make a nice touch i think, given the hatch isnt glued.

Im not the worlds greatest painter, far from the best , but far from the worst , the new contrast paints are odd to get used to as ive not been in the hobby for the past 6 years+

I was not happy with the previous hand for my goblin shaman so gave him a new, more stabby one (made from a part taken from the Conquest Mountain Jotnar kit). I think it is more in line with goblin character = go behind your rival/foe and stab him to death.

Yep I love rescued models, love doing it myself. This one is a good reason to give it a second life!

As for me, I finished painting the Khorne Skull Altar to fit the little Christmas project a friend commissioned me with. Now working on the last few pieces of the project, namely doing Christmas hat for the Bloodletters, and converting a Bloodthirster a bit to make it look more festive!

Been pretty slack in the way of modelling and painting stuff. Been mostly writing more Secret War, but just did a bit more work on prepping my autarch with wings conversion while watching some Cowboy Bebop, not sure exactly what I'm going to give him. Wish I had some magnets.

"The best way to lie is to tell the truth." Attelus Kaltos.
My story! Secret War
After his organisation is hired to hunt down an influential gang leader on the Hive world, Omnartus. Attelus Kaltos is embroiled deeper into the complex world of the Assassin. This is the job which will change him, for better or for worse. Forevermore. Chapter 1.

The Angaran Chronicles: Hamar Noir. After coming back from a dangerous mission which left his friend and partner, the werewolf: Emilia in a coma. Anargrin is sent on another mission: to hunt down a rogue vampire. A rogue vampire with no consistent modus operandi and who is exceedingly good at hiding its tracks. So much so even the veteran Anargrin is forced into desperate speculation. But worst of all: drive him into desperate measures. Measures which drives Anargrin to wonder; does the ends, justify the means?

Credit goes to Goobertown for his Contrast paint mix!

And, yes, you can add water to it and use it as a wash. See Les Bursley's wash.
