Bloody coldwave rolled in taking the outside temp a fair amount below 0, so cant prime my models. sucks to be living to the north in that regards.


Never had an issue priming in the cold, it's just a matter of the humidity not being too high and keeping the Spraycans warm inside before and between sprays.
Granted, I'm usually in the 0 to -10 Celsius range here, idk how bad it gets where you're at.


now it is -6 to -10 , so that means it feels like -10 to -16. I had a varnish coat go bad on me in februar when we had -10 to -16 so after that i dont spray when the outside temp is below 0.

Varnish is always more sensitive than anything else, I only varnish when the weather is perfect, but I'll prime/basecoat in almost any weather.

However noting that here I usually have the problem of too much heat where drying in the air becomes a problem, I've definitely heard of folks in colder climates priming below freezing, no idea how much below freezing it's still viable, but I wouldn't be hesitant in priming just because a varnish failed, varnishes are soooo picky.

Maybe so, but i just dont want to experience more fuzz when i do outdoor spraying, one time is one time too mutch.
weather forcast said we have to endure 5 more days of siberian coldwave, before the temps will go back over 0 next weekend, so it aint bad, just gotta wait a week.

You could give it a try on some sprue just to see how it goes so you know for future reference how well it works.

Thanks for the replies about the Eldar folks!

AllSeeingSkink, that grey suits the era really well, very nicely executed and can't wait to see a squadron of them! I'm probably going to drybrush my marines as I don't think I have the tolerance for edge highlighting a bunch of Xiphons and Storm Eagles.

The decals from FW arrived, putting decals on drybrushed models is a pain in the arse, so hard to stop air getting under them, and unfortunately either the decal setting solution or the lahmian medium caused discolouration of the underlying paint, doh!

For anyone who's curious, the regular SM shoulder pad decals are a good size for Xiphon wings, these wolf head decals come in 2 sizes and I used the larger of them.



They're also maybe a bit hard to see, with my eyesight I can't even tell that the ring around the wolves head is made from runes unless I'm 6" away. I was thinking perhaps I could paint the area Morghast Bone beforehand and then apply the decal to create more contrast, though it might hurt the "grim dark" vibe a little bit. Here's a photoshopped version of what I mean...

I like the splash of color the Morghast Bone would add.
