Rhino for Graham

...and a bit more work on Brother Dmitr:

Struggling a bit with how to detail the marines, but hopefully a few ideas will raise their heads when I'm not so bogged down!

In grimdark future, yellow scares *you*

<Inloading datasquirt +++ Operandus Tallarn Theatre +++>

To kick off this blog, here's an example of how I paint yellow – with a quick dose of Mango spray paint, followed by a Leviathan Purple wash. Purple is opposite yellow on the colour wheel, so a subtle hint of it really helps the yellow to pop in the recesses, and helps knock back the 'glowing' effect that really bright yellow can have.

First off, why paint?

There are a thousand answers to this question, but I think a good one is just that having painted miniatures makes them look better. Simple block colours immediately add interest to a miniature, and making them attractive is a big part of why the hobby appeals to me – there're few things more rewarding than someone going 'Coo, that's interesting!'.

'Twas the night before grimdark,
When all the PCRC,
Fall to eating and drinking,
And dreaming of spes mhr33nz*
The lads were nestled, all snug in their beds**
While visions of stormboyz danced in their heads***
And Catrin had so kindly (while Dave had a wee),
Settled us down with a dram of whiskey.
