A few years back I adopted the mantra of ‘finished, not perfect’ to help me clear my backlog of projects. It was through gritted teeth I hissed those optimistic words as I realised I would have to paint both of my least favourite things for this project: fire and flags. Curse you, past me! I would need to have recipes ready for candles, flames, glow effects and a design for the flag, likely involving some custom heraldry. I resigned myself to my fate, poured myself a tumbler of ‘19 Lahmian Medium, and picked up the brush.
A few weeks ago Anvil Industry sent me a message asking if I would be interested in creating some tutorials to help other painters achieve the glow effect I had been posting on social media using their products. If I am being upfront about it all, it is just an OSL technique using types of paint that many might not even know exist. My secret weapon is white ink and fluo (fluorescent) paints. And yes, they both exist. And yes, there are brands that make them for miniature painting.
The Digital Forge tankette is a lovely mini. As the name implies, it's a little wee tank! It is a two-person vehicle, making it perfect as a support tank, a mount for an officer who doesn't want to foot slog it, or as a heavy weapon in a mechanised army! I was inspired by the WW2 Italian desert camo scheme for the LV 33/35 tankette. Desert camo doesn't have to be just plain khaki and browns!
We’ve had some fantastic entries for our Werewolf Painting competition, and it’s been tough to pick winners, but it's time to dish out some prizes!
