that paint looks rad. can't wait to see pictures of that once done!
Ooooh I love that idea - I'm totally gonna do that! Now I just gotta find someplace to guy that..@Nordicus on reviewing Kairos again the black section just looks unfinished. I think there are 3 ways got could go with his wings without repainting the whole model.
1) leave the black edge as it is with the green and blend down to the wing tips using a fiery red/orange
2) paint a star field on the black of wings, as though the void of space is encompassed there
3) back to my favorite idea, make the black a multicolored iridescent oil slick of changing colors
There's even a paint that does it.
Schmincke "Aero vision space"
In going to try and get my hands on this stuff too, even at $30 bottle.
In the USA Dick Blick art supplies sells it. I presume they ship internationally. Schmincke is a German company so I'm sure you can get it without too much hassle.Ooooh I love that idea - I'm totally gonna do that! Now I just gotta find someplace to guy that..
I'm not sure. I don't own it yet. But metallic and color change paints almost always look better over a black or very dark undercoat. My guess is that gray /white would be too bright and not provide enough contrast.i wonder what that aero color ink would do to those wings if they started out bright white warm grey recesses... or basecoated grey and drybrushed up to a bright white at the ridges
Thanks a bunch man!I would think twice before sensing ny minis against that impreasive piece if work. Well done. Actually looks scary. And suitably chaotic.
Me too man. I have to admit I approach them with a certain awe, as I want them to look good and not just a re-painted normal knight.Looking forward to seeing what you do with those.
Well crap, I didn't get notified that you replied to the thread. I am having a bit of difficulty re-adjusting to this new theme I have to admit. Most of the usual features that I used are nowhere to be seen -.-Looking good as usual, Nord. Could we perhaps see some closer photos of the knight skeleton chassis and parts? They look good but is I want to see more of the detail. =)
Damn man, that sucks. I'm glad you're getting a new package though - Looking forward to seeing it on a model!So it looks like my test run of the paint will be delayed. Some neighborhood jerks stole the package from my front porch. My nextdoor neighbor saw them and called the police.
Fortunately, the retailer offered to replace it. So I'll let you know when I finally test it out.
