The Yellow does make it stand out but thats not necessarily a bad thing!
Also very good Job on the Base. It looks as if it came with the model. My only negative is that the pics are WAY over exposed. the flash washes out alot of the work youve put into the model. Id recommend either a lightbox or natural sunlight when taking the pics (i try to do natural sunlight or at least a very well lit room with no flash on my minis.)

As for sealer I havent had many problems with it but get used to working with it first. Theres an effect called "frosting" that can happen if its not mixed right and it will literally ruin your models. It ooks like this


Its a quick way to ruin all that hard work. Personally i used a matte/satin sealer designed for airbrushes but that i brush on instead (only because I'm too impatient to wait for a batch to do it with the airbrush). Ive sent you a cookie as well.

Thanks guys

Yeah I know the photos are crap... if you look in the album I linked there are pics without flash, but I dunno they're terrible aswell! :D

I have the yellow chaos star because that's the color that my entire army uses on the stars, so it's the one thing that really ties them together.

How do you avoid the frosting effect? Just shake it a lot and test spray it a little while before doing it on models?

Very Nice, I love the overall use of contrasting bright colors.

The frosting occurs if the air is too humid and warm. Im not sure where you do your painting but i would avoid spraying it indoors if possible but that is only for ventilation purposes otherwise the inside provides essentially ideal conditions. (assuming you dont keep your house at 35 degrees and 80 percent humidity "Welcome to Florida Kids." )

I definetly recommend doing a few tests first before applying it to the finished product.

Thanks guys!

@SwedeMarine Well... winter has arrived to Sweden, so it's not the heat that will be the problem. I'm worried if freezing temperatures will cause it to fail...

Yes freezing weather will also affect it. I would go ahead and test it though. If you end up making a mistake Olive oil will take the frosting off

Update!

So this arrived today in the mail :D



Basically I've got my work cut out for me for quite a while.. Planning on entering the Dark Apostle in next month's painting competition. I've also got to base most of my painted units. Gonna get started on that now. After that I'll try to get a few pics of my 500p army up.

I agree with Swedemarine on the freezing weather spray varnish frosting up on your nicely finished models. I learned the hard way by spraying a unit of 25 tomb kings tomb guard that I had spent ages painting. Frosted the lot!! I should have done a test spray model instead of launching into doing them all in one go in a line.
Anyway, it doesn't need to be really freezing, just quite cold and frosty problems can occur.
Nice work by the way!!
