This is exactly what I meant. It adds depth that normal varnish can't. And Iraqiel is very good at doing it the way he does

smidge222 thanks yeah I've already varnished it with gloss to give it a shine so it looks like blacked out glass. i forgot to put it in the post. When I saw the photo I thought the same thing I've also done it on the venom cockpit as well .

SwedeMarine Nice work. But i would add a few highlights to the cockpit windows to make them seem more Glass like.

smidge222 ok so its been a few days since I last updated. But I have finished my next unit. I didn't manage to do any work on the mandrakes mainly because I got hold of a lovely little kit that I just needed to build and paint strait away. The base is not done yet but it will fall in line with the other bases I have so brass rod with lots of cork board.

smidge222 I was thinking more like showy colours as they are gladiators who perform. So things like blues and pinks and yeah greens but nothing to natural looking. anyway ill give it ago then post up some pictures asap.

Iraqiel I kind of like the riotous hair varieties plan, but I think sticking to two or three different colours would look best. If you then washed them down with the same wash tone they'd probably look quite good in the unit all together. Maybe a violet, a dark green and a brown?

fatmantis i think grey hair would be good..it would match all the army together..and you could just add different shade to the hair to add a bit of flavor

Thanks a lot .

So I've had an idea and i need some thoughts on it. i have been thinking about the black and how it needs highlighting, instead of highlighting the hair how about i just give every wytch a crazy hair colour ? :D:D

Let me know.
