WIP update. Just some finishing touches (some highlighting on the plume, blending on the "tail") and then the base. hopefully I'll get it done this week just in time.

Here is my entry. It's a Warriors of Chaos Chariot. No conversions (I really didn't have time) just paint. But, the painting technique is different. It's all washes. I primer the models white, and then use washes and layering to create the painted effect, much like painting with watercolors. I like the effect, but it's very unforgiving of mistakes.

Dez, do you custom mix the washes, or use the GW ones right out of the bottle?

I am pretty sure he uses regular GW washes, maybe a little mixing. It actually isn't too hard to do so :)

Many people use washes wrong, in which they smother the model with washes, little do they know that washes are meant to selective as they also tint paint on the model. In Dez's case, he created highlights and shadows using different amounts of wash on certain areas; he washed selectively.

They are washes straight out of the bottle. But at the rate I go through them, it's going to be more cost effective for me to start making my own. It is a delicate technique, as I find out more each time I do it. The blending of different color washes also creates some neat effects!

Dez wrote:The topic for this month will be.....

WHEELS

It doesn't matter if its a bike, a trukk, rhino, landraider, leman russ, a unicycle, chariot, wheelbarrow, or a tire swing - as long its got a wheel(s) of any size it's fair game.



We have a winner! As per Falkner's PM to me:

"The winner would have to be - angrycanadian - his model just really captured the feel for this months theme. The sheer amount of modeling and converting was absolutely fantastic.

A special mention for Asrodrig - paint job is excellent. White is very hard to pull off and he pulled it off like a pro - very bright and clean, looks perfect.

Also to Dez and Victorious1 - unique model and unique technique. Painting in pure washes gave it a really different look. The 'unicycle' was very creative and the blending was also very nice."

Let's get geared up for next month!
