I know I'm relatively new around here, but I've been trying to branch out, so I suppose I'll show off my Fists.
Here's the method to my madness.
- Spray Tamiya Camel Yellow PS-19 over unprimed model. This can take SEVERAL, VERY light coats as it can slide over the plastic, but white and black undercoats didn't get the desired effect.
- Spray with purity seal, testors dullcoat, matte finish whatever.
- Selective wash of equal-parts Gryphonne Sepia, Devlad Mud and water.
- VERY light drybrush of golden yellow to bring the colour up.
- Do metal/shoulders/Aquila as desired.
- Drybrush 50/50 Golden Yellow/Skull White for small edge highlights.
Anyway, I've used more than a full Tactical Squad in finding this method, and this is what turned out DECENT. There are four more that were aborted very early on in painting due to wash issues, wrong colour entirely etc.
On the left we have my test mini, in the center the second one done. The second one done really bothered me and had me learn the hard way how difficult it is to get that consistency with yellow. Towards the right, Mr. Melty-face. A better attempt at consistency, but not as bright as the test mini.
Mr. Melty-face on the left. In the center, someone I was finally satisfied with, but still no measure of consistency. On the right, my first done tit-for-tat with kingmong's method. It just looked too orange for me, he's clearly better with his spray and wash than I am, so I took the easy way out.
Finally, the final model I'm satisfied with. I love it. Perfect yellow, smooth coverage, easy detail, simple blacklining. Love it. I can see how to do vehicles and squads from this method - like I said to him though, I can see why he sprays without the arms on!
Can't wait to get started with more!
