You should, I have found it to be a great motivation to paint. I have only missed one day since starting it and that was because I was not home almost all day! I think the video shows it better but the metallic isn't one shade either, I have highlighted it and shaded it as well, just the shiney nature causes light to really reflect on its own.

Djinn do you have any airbrushing videos? I recently got my setup, and I'm ready to rock. Especially as I've been having trouble holding an exacto knife as of late.

Not a lot when it comes to how to. Mine are mainly what are airbrushes and what to get. I do plan on doing some how to do effects soon enough though.

I would LOVE to see a video on really, just basics of painting a mini with an airbrush. Priming, Gradients, Zenithal Highlights. Maybe those aren't basics? Haha

I am looking at getting a new webcam combo for recording tutorials my current camera is a 1080p but lacks and auto focus which kills making good tutorials with it. I think my roomies camera has a focus on it so I may barrow it. I will be doing a tutorial on the fade tomorrow, as several folks have asked for it already.

Djinn, do you have any pics of your 25k of Eldar?

I looked at your blog but couldnt find anything. Would love to see how big that many points look as an Army shot.

One day I will get them all together. Right now I am still trying to unpack them all. Now a days it is probably closer to 30k points.

I do have some pics of some of the army, keep in mine the 2 groups are not the same models.

I have bought a LOT of other models on ebay as well like a ton of jetbikes, wraithguard (50+), Support Platforms (8), other armies from people as well. I also have a very large Eldar BFG army as well.

Heheh I was going to say..... massive contrast to your Forge World tanks to the rest of the army in regards to painting quality.
