Going into today's painting I had intended to highlight the red, but then I thought that if I did the other colors first I couple highlight the armor and clean it up at the same time. I did the helmets with the GW foundation yellow and base coated the black and future metal parts.
|Base coating: the group shot.|
|Finished group shot.|
|Getting close to finished.|
After that I tried a 4:1 mix of Reaper:Vallejo, but I the contrast wasn't enough. Instead I went with a 2:3 mix of Vallejo Dead White with the Reaper yellow and touched up the sharpest corners.
|Like my holders?|
As you can see I finally found some things to mount the minis on while I paint them. The blu-tac went on easy, held the models securely, and let them go with little fuss when I took them off for transport. I'll still want at leat two more, so I can work on groups of five at a time, but for now it's good to be able to hold and twist what I'm working on without having to worry about rubbing the paint off if I change my grip.
