As I mentioned some time ago, I've ditched the old GW paints and invested in moving over the Vallejo Game Colour for the bulk of my paints. Having run down a most of my GW collection messing about with Ewan's Orks (and he can have whats left for when he fancies a splodge around), I cracked them open for the first time to work on a couple of figures - my Marine Company Captain, and my Command Squad Apocathery. Results below!
Overall, huge fan of the Vallejo paints, although their colour depth took me a little by surprise after using the old GW ones (i hear the new ones are a big improvement). The washes I picked up were a bit of a disappointment, so may stick with the GW ones for the time being. The biggest thing is that the dropped bottles make it much, much easier to mix colours, which means I have done more of it, which means better results.
|These are fiddly, fiddly figures. Lots of fun detail.|
|Technically he shouldn't have a Plasma Gun but the|
Command Squad theme is Plasma Weapons and it looks cooler.
|Front Shot. The sword is nicked from the Company|
Champion as it's nicer than the "normal" Power Sword.
|Rear shot. My first attempt at wet-blending appears|
on his cloak.
