I messed up

I was about to start putting some paint on the armour plates on the three miniatures of my side project. I messed up badly. First I decided to go with blue plates but that looked really bad. I went on doing some more washing on the second model, only to have it seriously messed up. On the third model I tried a strong orange on the plates and it looked pretty nice but I still wasn’t happy with the result. Beyond repair the models ended up taking a bath in my supersonic washer, stripping them clean from all paint.

I still think the colour I used as a foundation was nice and I am thinking of using it again. Maybe going with white armour plates?

Side project

I have begun on a small side-project. I did get some very nicely detailed miniatures from Anvil Industry and I decided to paint them up in a colour I don’t usually paint with. I think they look great, although they are in a very early stage.

I began by priming the miniatures with Vallejo Surface Primer Grey (74601) followed by Vallejo Surface Primer Black (74602) from bellow. Then I went over the models with Vallejo Model Air Blue RLM65 (71008) straight out of the bottle. After that I added a little Vallejo Model Air White (71001) to the mix and sprayed, from above, at some pieces standing out, like the feet and the backside of a leg. Obviously the heads and shoulders got this mix as well. After letting the paint dry for a bit I diluted Citadel Coelia Greenshade with a little thinner and washed the minis to the current state.

Backpacks

Tonight I did get the rest of the robes painted up. I also came up with how I want to paint the backpacks. I will add some brass details to them, besides the green and white, and I think the final result will look very good. The green I use is Vallejo Game Color Cayman Green (72067).

The unprimed models come from Anvil Industry and are for another project. The details of these miniatures are impressive and they offer a good portion of variation, giving a wide range of possibilities. Check them out at https://anvilindustry.co.uk/.
