i've noticed the same issue with metallics when airbrushed. it makes the metal look funny when its sprayed on, and then when you brush on more metallic paint, you immediately notice there's a difference. too much of the sparkliness gets distributed too thin and evenly by airbrushes, and it looks off.

Know what the really weird thing is? If I make a blend to emulate Lead Beltcher using Tamiya paints, this issue doesn't happen. Maybe it is just an issue of having to do more coats.

Scarab production is well under way. Some casts definitately turned out better than others, but it is to be expected when trying to do that many in one casting.

If I can produce and paint 20-something bases by the 23rd, I should be good. The biggest problem I've run into with my Scarabs so far has been running out of bases to place for spawning.

a tip for batch-casting tom; when you make your mold, level out your instant mold as best as you can 'before' placing the models into it. once that's done, pre-place the models into the insta-mold, and press them all down evenly with a single flat block of lego or balsa, or anything you can find the right size for your batch mold. let it set and remove your originals.

now when you go to add the green stuff, you can put slightly oversized blobs of it into each scarab mold and press them all down firmly with your block. this will give you a more even and consistent result across the mold.

The downside to that, I've noticed, is that in the process of flattening the surface the instant mold cools off too much to receive the original well. Strategic layering of scarabs should help me hide most flaws, though.

Hey Mark, you ready to fight a Stargate tomorrow?

Decided to try out one of the metallic air brush paints today, so I painted 20 Flayed Ones. Also wanted to try out the new Green technical wash.

Working on some more Destroyers so I can run the Cult. Tweaking some bits, Deathmark head swaps and such.



Bashing together a Heavy Gauss Cannon as well. I need to figure out what to do to deal with the gaps around the back rods.

Assembly on the converted Heavy Destroyer is finally finished, just need to wait for the Green Stuff to cure and I can start priming and painting tomorrow.




The end bit on the over the shoulder targeting array is simply the barrel off of a Deathmark's rifle.

The basic nail/magnet stands have been produced for the Destroyers now. They still need to get all gussied up, though.



And the Destroyer Cult, ready to get primed and painted.

Paint on the Destroyers are coming along, so hopefully I'll have them all up to three colour by the time of the tournament.



And a (largely) stripped 20 man Warrior blob with Gauss Blaster rods in place of the clear green ones.

My, what a way I have come since the beginning of this thread!

Warriors with rod replacements and a power gradient up next:




They are starting to look rather impressive, all ranked up like that.

Tomb Stalker is coming along nicely so far. Florist wire through the whole length lets me space it out a bit looser.
