  1. Hi all, a little interim post to show the gunships at an uglier stage. The first round of blue has been shaded to give me a better idea of how much blue I want. The second round of blue is done in base colour only. The red of the engines has no shading yet either. Black areas incomplete, white not started. I find a lot of the in progress work to be quite odd and I like how the model changes in the later stages. Thanks @alamo, I'm trying hard to get a life balance at the moment. Hoping for a restful weekend. Thanks @tansalus. I am getting there. Thanks @clifford. There is a blue wash over the model. My Directorate has a black Primer spray, gun metal base coat spray, then a blue wash. I then clean up the metal with a brush gun metal. Thanks @Frostphoenyx Thanks everyone for all the kind words and support. WA
  2. The pirate specific rules and model sets are a higher stretch goal. I Hate these exclusives and they frustrate me the more I see. I just wish the business model of making great miniatures and distributing through FLGS was enough for Spartan. My FLGS is not ordering refil Spartan stuff anymore and is reluctant to do special orders at the moment.
  3. If the Matt medium works for you then don't change your technique. I am not sure how the thinner would affect the medium. I don't use both together. I use Matt medium to make a Matt wash from paint, and gloss medium to make a gloss wash from paint. I look forward to seeing your carrier
  4. The new core models are looking sweet. I am looking forward to this Kickstarter winding up so they can start getting the core expansions into my FLGS
  5. Try Vallejo 70.524 (200) Thinner Thins the pigment out so that you end up with most of the pigment flowing into the recesses. or try Vallejo 70.597 (196) Drying Retarder Can help reduce the grimyness of some wash finishes. Personally I always retouch the base colour after a wash anyway. I am doing some Directorate Planetfall aircraft at the moment. I use a blue wash over silver, then retouch the Silver on the panels and raised bits. Going over it slowly and lightly, multiple passes. Building up slowly reduces the risk of overdoing it Have Fun WA
  6. Thanks for the Likes and comments. Great minds think alike @alamo not much to report this week, other than the fact that I am tired and in pain. It's been a rough month for me. Lots of physical exertion, not enough rest. It's also hard to push myself on PF when there is so little positive energy on the forums Painting wise I have been so distracted by FSA. Particularly the Omnidyne. I have hardly touched Planetfall. I have started on these Base coated and washed. Picking out some of the panels. I have to go, Thanks for looking, likes and comments are appreciated. WA
  7. Excellent as always. You have a lot of skill with military narrative. Tensions are building nicely. I look forward to the combat. Thanks for writing and sharing
  8. Hi @Failsafe!, welcome to the Forums. And well done on joining the Relthoza. I Love the Halloween concept. Very nicely detailed painting there, you have a steady hand, great colour selection too. If you add a little thinner (not water) to the wash before you apply it, you will get less wash on the higher surfaces, more in the recesses. Alternatively you can come back over the miniature with the colour used under the wash ( or one slightly lighter). Paint very carefully over the Ridges and flat panels to soften the grime. Let me know if this doesn't make sense. Have Fun WA
  9. Nice speedy work on your small ships. They have come up awesome. I look forward to seeing the Force all together. And some Sorlyian with Directorate shots too please. Keep up the awesome painting
  10. Fans waited through Carbon Arc, Incandescent, induction, Mercury Vapor, fluorescent.........LED. Whenever the light finally comes we will know what we've got
  11. Wow, really nice work, you have obviously put a lot of effort into those. Awesome Result I look forward to seeing the complete Fleet. Btw. I like the moon/ planet too
  12. Very Dramatic, very Compelling. Well done. You have some great personalities developing in your stories. I look forward to hearing more developments
  13. Excellent work on the Directorate Good Guys. I did not spot any bad guys though... you have done a fantastic job with the details and cleanliness on all your ships. I look forward to some photos of the Directorate and Sorylian together.
  14. Hi @Punisher357 there is a new edition (2.0) being promised. The current 2.0 army lists wil show a core for your Bakash allies as well as their aerial helix. No models for the Allied cores have been released yet. I think Spartan are still promising a Beta test update to the rules this month. I have not seen any comments for a while though. Welcome to Planetfall
  15. Well hey, I am not saying the Poll is not slightly biased. But all polls tend to be a bit biased. Right? WA p.s. Bane!
