How do I stop it from just turning brown. After 3-4 layers it kinda stops being metal and becomes brown


Try using different coloured washes and you can also apply a light drybrush of the silver over the pad in conjunction with the scratches which brings that metal to the fore you'd be suprised that how a small amount of a certain colour can trick your eye into making the assumption the entire part is made from or coloured in metal,bone,rust etc. so for instance a bit of silver on the top curve of the pad will make you think that the while lot is metal.

Thanks Damo, I was using 3 different washes, blue, sepia, black, and brown.

I'll try out the light drybrush of silver on the top

Make sure you show us how you go with it! even some random experimental pads or something?

I bought a new camera for our wedding in November and I got to play with it. It a Canon Powershot SX710 HS. Big upgrade from my 10 year old 5mp camera. New camera means figuring out how to use it. I must have taken 100 photos of the same model with different settings and light

Maybe I should have dusted it off first

Beautiful photos my friend. Excellent choice on the new camera.

Ahh the old hair pulling problem of a new camera! so much potential but so damn tricky to get right! I do the same thing by taking heaps of shots, some with the blinds open/closed/half open/flash on/flash off/flash on card in front of flash. then you pop them on the computer and realise only two are actually usable lol :-)

Yup! Even after you figure out the right combo of all the settings, light locations, blinds, distance, white balance, aperture, iso...After memorizing the perfect turn out... the next time you do it... It turns out garbage and then you start all over playing with all the settings again!

But that doesn't bother me too much.

What's bugging me is, now that I can get really great shots of my work, I'm realizing that I'm a messy painter. I also figured out that I don't like these metal paints. They are pretty sparkly.

Just stopping by the subscribe and congratulate you on you're amazing Red Corsairs! I've recently taken them up to, as an auxiliary force to my Alpha Legionnaires, and I was wondering about your decals. Could you possibly send me a pdf or somesuch of them so I could print them? They look amazing!

Thank you! I want the Hounds of Huron/Red Corsairs done up as a Gorepack formation, with some additional auxiliary forces, such as CSMs in Rhinos and a Mayhem Pack, as I don't think the Helbrutes match the less Chaosy feel of my Alpha Legionnaires.

I don't have a current blog, but it'll be up in soon, I'll post it here when I get around to it

I cant wait, It will be refreshing to see your take on them.

It might even give me some well needed inspiration to get to the painting table

Airbrushing today, so I can at least give you a WiP I'm gonna go for a Vallejo Red (Gory or Blood, I think) and an Agrax Earthshade to make dirtier. I'm gonna do that black as Eshin Grey and 4-5 layers of Nuln.

Looking good Chaz. Really like the way the colors make you focus on the head.
