Challenge Day 47 - Shinies and NSL Power Armour
It's always nice to come home and find a package from a minis supplier.
Yes, some lovely shinies from Hasslefree. I have done a double of one figure - one of the pair will be my Curtgeld, the other will be for myself. The rest will be prizes for my 3rd Blogday (and 300K page views) giveaway.
NSL Power Armour
Well, with the honourable exception of Millsy, it appears that people seem to prefer the figures with the strong tone wash. I must admit that I was leaning that way later on, but I think it does need watering down a little. I'll also adjust the point at which I use it to after doing the two greens and the grey, but before the visors and other details.
Last night I did the base colour (German Field Grey). This evening I've done the contrast green (changed from German Dark Green to Bronze Green) and will be doing the grey after posting this. If I have time, I'll do the strong tone wash as well. That will allow me to do the detailing tomorrow evening.
I also did a few steps on the next batch of Union infantry last night, as you can see from the pic of the NSL. I'll do some more work on them tomorrow.
