Free speech and all that ...

I have opened comments for all readers, so, y'all be good now.

Since We Are On Metallics ...

Just a quickie on Vallejo's Liquid Gold series (alcohol-based), compared to GW's Burnished and Shining Gold ...

All are straight out of the pot (well, the cap, actually, for the VLG), no dilution or additives, taken with a daylight bulb and no flash, and no colour correction.

Getting Fleshy Again

Flesh washes and inks from T

Coat D'arms produce, what is said to be, the original 'flesh wash' recipe. However, there is the 'blue top' version and the later 'black top' version (now both discontinued from Citadel/GW ... also the 'white screw cap' version, but we will not speak of those), which appear, at first sight, to be very different beasts.

They appear identical, when applied (if the 'black top' is slightly more red, after mulitple passes, but that may be an ageing issue) ...

Flash used.

Other comparisons here, here, here and here.

Laurentimort - Daemon Prince of Laurentix (Part 2)

Now that my Chaos Daemon Prince kit has arrived, having selected the bits for the 'standard build', I can use the other bits for my Laurentimort project.

So, here he was before I had the kit ...

Because of the bit options, which remained, the original idea of his right hand holding a severed head and his left, the scythe, had to be swapped.

Here is the 'armature', now, with the modifications which were required ...

It was necessary to do some substantial digging-out of the kit's breast, so as to get the fit I wanted (two small bits of build damage are temporarily-filled, for now) and the upper torso needed twisting, because of the kit's slight 'twist' at the abdomen ...

Attaching the breast and some filling, next. I expect the legs will need some 'extension' work, but that can wait until the torso is 'done'.

Oh, and we will have no untoward Slaaneshesque comments, thank you (unless you are really funny) ;)
