This weekend I continued working on my Tau Forge world commander. He is coming along nicely. I have added in the wash to bring out the lines and hide some of my painting mistakes. I also based coated my base so I can start the basing process.
I started to do the edge highlighting on his thrusters and around his head. I am realling liking how he is turning out. He might be my best painted model yet. Scary.
I am always scared to do my vehicles. There is just so much open flat surfaces thet brings out the brush strokes. Ususally I will find an arm painter paint or if I fail there an krylon spray paint to help me out. Well I guess no one likes orange. The best think I have found is at Micheals they had a matte spray paint so I thought I would give it a shot. here is the results.
It took probably 10- 12 coats to get a mostly even color but I am satisfied with the outcome. the biggest downside is it is too light to match my army. I am at a loss. I am thinking of biting a bullet and doing the airbrush route but the problem there is I have zero funds to invest in one and I am scared to use someone else's for the fear of ruining their expensive tool while fumbling around trying to use it. I have 3-4 tanks and eventually 3-4 parahinas to work on. and if I like how it feels I gou use it to quicken my crisis suit and riptide painting.
The question is do they make an airbrush color to match the old foundation macharius solar orange? Or can I just use the old paint in the airbrush.
Another worry I have is how close is the old foundation to the new base color. I have not had to use the new one yet. It is another big worry.
If you have any suggestions let me know.
Until Next time...
