That's actually a great idea; making a small stippling brush. The only one I have is pretty durned huge. I'll have to pick up some of this wash, if that's all that was (Not to belittle the paint techniques that applied it) I'm very impressed with it.

And best of all, its quite cheap, just pretty much get any synthetic brush, and cut it in half. i think i bought mine for about 0,4 $ here in sweden.
Ye the wash is really great, saves a lot of time and gives a nice result!

Finally, i´m done with the truck! To be honest, it must have been one of the dullest model I´ve painted.

Decided to put my kans on a hold for while. I think i´ll finish my 10 gretchins instead.

Awesome work.

Since you have just finished one you will be able to help me.

I will soon be starting my titan base and I am having it land on the front of an Ork truck. So I want to convert the trukk so that the front chassis is crushed in and the back part is flipping up.

Do you think it would just be easier to just make the trukk first or can I convert the trukk in separate pieces?

Cheers m8!

I would personally say it´s easier to convert it in separate pieces. This way you can bend the pieces to make it look like it was crushed/melted by heat etc.

Thanks m8!


Got some new stuff going on!

10 gretchins and 3 mega nobs/one mek

Image

I love the mega nob kit, it has so much stuff to put on your models! I decied to go for 2 skorchas and power claw, and 1 with killsaws. The arms are not glued on so i can change weapons if i want.

The gretchins are going through some repainting. At first, i wanted them red, but later on decided yellow would be best. Also did some changes to the guns, fur and bindings. Atleast i got a solid base for the red ones.

Indeed they does!

Got the first 3 finally done. Was a slow week due to some relationship issues. All i can say, at least now i will have plenty of time to paint.

Decided to give them red noses. Why you say? Because everyone loves red noses!
