Not updated this for a long time, but I have been working, (somewhat at a snails pace) on some models so I'll post new pics soon.

Thanks oldman, I was thinking of doing a successor chapter of the fists but i'm terrible with making fluff so crimson fists seemed the best bet.

the spray gun is an airbrush kit I got off ebay (see link below) I used both the brushes that came with it for these models, but the grav feed is better, but they are still low end, the compressor is what your after with this really, these brushes are only really good for messing about and base coating.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/AIRBRUSH-C...ht_1280wt_1037

the kit for the moulds is also off ebay, check the link,

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Polycraft-...#ht_786wt_1037

and the resin is also off ebay (I like ebay)

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/EasyFlo-60...6#ht_933wt_905


I don't water down the wash at all, only the paint till it is about the same consistency as skimmed milk

Hope this helps mates.

Nice painting jimmy. The highlighting is not too sharp and equally not too subtle. Good job.

Have you tried loading them again, mine says it's £19.50 with £4.75 postage.

Jake.

love the tank and the dark deep blues!! personally for my transports they're going to be absolutely COVERED in mud, the heavy support will be mush less mucked up (it maybe worth mentioning that I play BA and despite the fact that they're all fast that's not what i mean)

update, i'll get better pics up very soon as their painted now and ive been meaning to post these since the beginning of jan, but for now here is a little taster


command squad and captain.



the stray wolves homebrew chapter/warband i done have had their shit looted.



Razor one.


Razor two.


the story so far.


i've also done a chaplain pics will follow.

also so far this year i've also repainted a lot of my ork boys, sold a lot of the old stuff and replacing it with new as my skills grow. built some custom buggies and a big mek with KFF too, and a few other bit that give me a 1000point ork army.

just for a giggle.
my son plays the orks army, he is 8.
I play the crimson fist army, I'm 28. guess who has won all 3 games we have had this year.
thats right the 8 year old, dude I suck. I didn't even bend the rules to help the little guy out.
I asked him what tactic he would use, he replied "I'm coming to chop you up" and he did every time

Awesome! Its cool that your eight-year-old gets to enjoy your hobby and have Daddy time.

Diggin' the rhinos. CF are one of my favorite SM color schemes, I just don't want to try and pull it off...
