  1. I am using the Raicho Pilot and Pneumarch HVT.
  2. Yup. Sorry I did not say anything, but I did not want to interrupt the game.
  3. It was good to meet you today!
  4. First of all- yay for morats! Secondly- wow these look amazing! Great choice of colours and a striking scheme to go with it. You have managed to make Raicho look good, which is a feat of it's own.
  5. This is a very interesting point. I have been painting miniatures for almost 20 years now and I have to admit that my attitude towards applying paint to miniatures was simply to do it tidy and pick uniform colours for my armies. I have never thought about composition nor have I looked at a miniature imagining how the colors will flow through it or if I need to place focal points anywhere or possibly even counterbalance the pose of the model with certain brighter tones. It looks like I have been coloring more than painting my models. Yup, I am from Warsaw. I would be happy to come to one of your workshops or even meet at Wargamer and have a chat about painting. Yes, I need to finally do this. I'll give it a try during the weekend when it is still bright outside when I am home.
  6. Okay, things need to be said @Maru. I've been watching your thread since I registered on these forums and I have to say I was not a fan of your style. However, the more I look at your models (the pneumarch especially!), the more I appreciate how much is going on on them regarding the colours used, little patterns (for example pneumarch's right shin) and awesome feeling of wholeness, which can only be achieved by having great taste and 'feel' for composition. I hate (yes, it flows through me!) to admit it, but I really envy you, as I think my models look pale, boring and uninspired in comparison.
  7. Hate the freehand on the coat. However, very nice osl (kudos for going with red, which is a bitch to make look good) and an awesome themed base
  8. Can't say I'm too keen on the buildings as they are too blocky for my liking (this is true for most of hdf terrain though), but as pointed by Section 9, the ad-displays and the fast food stand look really nice. Looking forward to seeing the official pricing.
  9. Pretty much what @Maru said. Not waiting until the primer fully sets will hinder it's mechanical resilence significantly. Also, always (especially with metal models), varnish your finished miniatures.
  10. Spectacular in terms of technique, but a bit too monochromatic for my taste.
  11. Not sure if I like the Buddha statue. I see what you went for, but I think it stands out from the rest of your table a bit too much and has a plastic toy effect. Maybe it is because of the shininess?
  12. Too awesome.
  13. While opening a link to the gallery, I was like 'please, let there be fluffy bunny tails'. BAM! Not disappointed
  14. As a 'paint snob', who refuses to play against not fully painted armies, I would like to throw my 2 cents in. Everyone is entitled to enjoy the hobby the way they want. If one's priorities are work/family/other things, then they can play with card tokens for all I care. For me though, one of the most important parts of the hobby is immersion and I absolutely need to play with fully painted army against a fully painted army on a fully painted, good looking table. Am I a snob? Maybe, but as long as I find others, who share my view and play against them, I do not really consider myself as hurting the hobby or stigmatizing anyone.
