But you didn't come here to hear about the future of nuclear power!
This was Cicero base coated- very uninspiring.
|I am very uninspiring.|
That green stuff is… green stuff. Modelling putty that I've moulded into a mound for the rifle butt to rest on. Unfortunately I wasn't able to get the model to sit flush onto the base so a bit of adhoc crafting had to be done.
|With highlights- looking much improved!|
I think that highlights (and neatness) are the two things that really make a model. How people highlight can be simple or super complex- but the end result of highlighting makes a MASSIVE difference to painting. I don't blend (usually)- I just pick the next colour lighter in the paint range.
|Some more highlights done|
I left the hair this time to the end as it wasn't such a big deal as I wasn't doing any of that messy dry brushing.
Finally, the finished product with a bit of touching up and some more 'super-highlighting' of the black- putting a bit of Ghost grey in the corners of the Cold Grey in the corners of the Black.

|A good looking gem there!|
