just looking at the pretty pictures
Honestly, I'm totally guilty of this as well. Especially on your Log, there are plenty of pretty pictures there to be distracted by.
Having said that, I think you are right even if it isn't lightning. I've painted it base gunmetal, Asurmen Blue wash, Leadbelcher layer and then Mithril Silver paterning, but I almost feel like I should have either green stuff'd the pattern (too hard for with my current skill, honestly) or done something different with the paint... either source lighting or using a Devlan/Badab combo and relayering metalics to give it more depth and 'age'. How would you suggest doing it?
And im also wondering if you have any more shots of your terrain. Im looking at the one at the top of this page and im astunded at ho well made it is. I need to steal some of your ideas
Well Swede, no 'fresh' ideas yet sorry, but I do have a cupboard full of terrain that is luring me with its siren call (also I need to not spend quite so much money on plastic spacemen at the moment) so you never know.
Slightly related, here are the tyrannids (and some other bitz) I said I'd finish this month... I'm not so sure now, because I pulled out my 'things I bought from Ebay before work took me overseas' box and and found THIS:
I am childishly excited to get this going. I did have to hide that leviathan crusader though, because I actually do not want to start that until I have my hands on an airbrush.
