Painting Progress Lately

Been working on a few guys over the last year or so and finally finished them up. Here are a few pictures of them.

Super pretty. I love the blue on the Libby.

Are you using the new Gw paints? I'm assuming you're still using the wet pallet as well...

loads of new GW paints, focus on foundation paints typically, although the blue is a wide variety of different types. I ended up varnishing these so a fair amount of the detail was killed.

Why'd you varnish them? I can understand metals, but never see the need to on plastics. The blue on the Libby (and especially on his axe) is really lovely.

I love them! They are super cool.

I have taken them out of the foam several times, just to oogle them.

Thanks a ton!

The plastic used is different from the grey plastic and doesn't hold the primer as well. It is glossier and a little greasy. Paint was rubbing off from just casual touching of the model on raised areas showing the model underneath. They would have only lasted a game or two before it became visable. In hind sight they should have been heavily soaked and scrubbed with LGS added to the raised tops and several careful thin layers of primer, but I didn't realize this until it was too late and I wasn't going to strip them and repaint the armour.

Huh, didn't know that! I assumed it was the same plastic as usual and that it wouldn't require some kind of resin level of cleanup. I'll keep that in mind for whenever I actually crack my copy open.

That's what I assumed. Don't get me wrong, it's not resin level clean up, but I imagine a careful scrub would have avoided the entire issue. I had ideal priming conditions on them too, if it wasn't for that I would have blamed the prime job.

Flat krylon. I've primed with it previously and since with no problems.

Hrmmm, I primed mine red with Army Painter and didn't notice any issues. I'll report back when I get around to painting them.
