    Hey fellow Lustrians,
    i got into painting again some months ago and thought i'd share my current projects.
    I bought a cheap metal carno on ebay. (As i recieved him i saw the fins on the back are filed down. :-/ but i decided to go with him despite that.)

    I want him to look bigger then he really is, so i am going to build a diorama around him. Below you can see some pictures of the process. I will add more, as i continue. :)
    1) Pose check

    2) Building the base

    Visiting my old engine of the gods. It was my first contrast paint experiment. Now turning it into a skystrike Bow ... not exactly a fun piece to paint. :-/ 20200501_232954.jpg 20200501_232922.jpg

    Had a boring day... i stil can't get myself to start batch painting my Saurusguard neither the warriors. I stil fear to ruin the Terradons (I have 9 build and waiting to be painted for about a year :-/.).

    So i just prepared the bases for the Kroxigors.

    They will be dry and crackled tomorrow and get a shade of Agrax and a drybrush of Wraithbone. Then i will add some tufts / flock / snakes.

    And you can show how many consecutive turns someone is holding the objective, or how many points one objective is worth in the given turn. I hope i can use them soon. :-/

    3 Kroxigors, 3 Salamanders, 9 Handlers -> 20€ including postage
    Now i know why. :rolleyes: Underneath the 2mm thick coat of some crazy paint i found the whole miniatures covered in superglue. :-/ Took me about two hours with the Hobby knive. But now they are rebuild. Tomorrow will be green stuff day. :) 20200505_230142.jpg 20200505_230110.jpg

    I can only recommend dumping metal miniatures into acetone. Paint? Gone! Super glue? Gone! Attached plastic parts? Gone too! :p
    Just use a glass container of some sort that can be closed air tight - old Nutella glass for example. Saves a lot of time with the hobby knife. ;)

    Normally i try isopropanol alcohol first, if this is too weak i use nitro-thinner (I'm not sure if these are the correct terms.).

    Is Aceton used as nailpolish remover? I may find that in the bathroom. I just have to be sneaky enough. :eek:
