For Sale! selling a few oldies for shiny new things!

Hi chaps! I have some awesome stuff for sale that I just know I'll never get round to painting. I've decided it's wasted sitting boxed in the drawer! All are unassembled etc, in bags, no fancy box but boxed for postage. Payment by PayPal. PM for details. Postage about £3 per item I think! (UK second...

Yes. Please keep posting. You seem to get the models painted quicker and in some cases better than Mierce do. It is useful and inspirational. If only you could get Seb to put together a WIP thread for us!

Re: Blue Armour

Looks like you just need to paint it as normal metal, then give it some dark blue washes. You'll need to re-touch some parts but it should work. I wouldn't try any of the blue metallics you can get, they just look weird. Or< you could add some dark blue to your metallic base colour.

Re: AndyP Mjagnir wip

I agree with Darth, you need more variation in tones. Plus more contrast. Lighten the highlights, darken the recesses. Umm, take a look at mine? Plus Bohun's and of course, Ben Comets studio version. Ben's is the one I used for reference.
