Cool how-to video from Lester over at Awesomepaintjob.com. I know it’s almost a year old now, but it came out around the time my son was born, so obviously, I missed it. Now that I’m getting back into finishing my army, I went digging and found this.
There are a couple cool techniques I want to try with my SoMs. Namely, doing my helmets separate and using pigments to char things up like the metals and shaded areas. I hate painting white over my green base coat because it’s so time consuming to build up. I also liked his use of an air brush. I am definitely considering one.
Anyway, check out the video. It’s full of awesome tips. I would say his process little time consuming for me, but definitely a worthwhile method for my special models like characters and vehicles.
