I prefer the dirty campaign look rather than pristine as I always feel that 3 days marching up a road in a white uniform would leave it somewhat well.............less white.
I tried a new technique (Gloss varnish then white spirit or shellite in Australia with black and brown oil paint, then removed with a cotton wool bud) with this lot but found the varnish I used was too sticky and it took the fluff from my cotton wool buds. Thus an extra two hours of fluff removal has me fondly desiring to return to an old and trusted technique. Matt varnish with a drop of black or brown as a "Super Wash".
36 minis at 5 points should net me 180 points.
Yawn... Stretch... Sorry folks. I was up waaay too late and slept in. The trouble of a middle aged man who still enjoys keeping teenage hours.
OKAY! Espresso in hand, glasses on face - let's get to it.
Whoa. Beautiful work Chris. This is a nice beefy unit, which I guess it should be if it's Austrian. I imagine it tromping out of some depot in Austria with the men thinking that it will be THIS TIME, this time for sure that they will send that little Corsican packing. I really like the campaign look you've gone with and your groundwork is great. I dunno, That finishing technique you describe with the cotton wool sounds kinda fussy. Anything where you have to brush on and wipe off makes me cringe, as I know I would probably completely botch it up.
Are these Perry plastics? The models themselves look very nice.
180 points, but I'm going to pop in another for the flag. Well done Chris!
