    I didn't say they were bad. I just preferred the paint finish on the Tau, but the Dready looks exceptional. I like the random Tau goo blood on the claw.

    thinking about it the Dready is a lot better painted than the rest of the Marines like I said before, but possibly more than the Tau aswell. Noticing more details :O

    Thanks y'all, mets got a point, the paint is a bit thick, the way I do the deep red is using an earthy base with vivid hightlights, the only problem being the only good shade of red I could find was a crappy revel aquacolour paint which is either too thick or too thin to go on, with nowehre in between. Also the highlighting method I sue has a fair few layers so it comes out that way.

    The only thing is these were all done back before Xmas, and I have some newer better stuff, the only problem is my camera is out of battery and I dont have my charger....

    I can probably put something else up next week to show.

    Have'nt been here for a while, hope your all doing alright and still doing the painting lark. The Dreadnought above is great Crusader, nice paint job and good idea for the Tau on the base. It's things like that which add a little personal touch and make something stand out. Plus a conversion, even a small or simple one still gives you a one off model lol. Right I'm gonna put something on. This is just a quick reply!

    The Grey Knights I was talking about. Non-metallic silver was rubbish (maybe I should've practiced on something smaller first lol)

    I like your models McTroubles. Nice and cleanly painted. Not fancy-shamncy but still looks good, just the way it should be.
