Been so long since I posted my Allies (since I was working on my buddy's Suckerpunch project for so long), that the last time I posted was before the Painting subforum was around. Heres a refresher and I'll add to it now that it's in the right place...
Looking at the pictures the first thing that I was thinking when the image of Captain America appeared was: "WHY DID YOU MAKE THAT?!?"
Then the Iron Man paint job scrolled onto my screen and all I could think was: "Oh my God, that is just so COOL!!"
"I have nothing to say,
No way to say it….
But I can say it in three languages!"

thanks very much. one of our guys at the shop came up with the Capt America idea with my extra Bazooka Joe. That was about the time of the movie and it fit the Dust theme. So then I got an extra Rhino, and was stumped. Iron Man premiered in the later 50's I believe, so it was a stretch to include him in Dust, but I made one Avenger... so... I also didnt put him in his original steel armor because it was too much of a blah color scheme. We'll see if there end up being any other heroes that I can add to my Avenger roster :)
Very nice Chef! Hmmmm do I dare go and paint Chef and Angela on Christmas Eve????
It's all about the Dust
Cool... How do you make these cracks on "snowy" bases?
You buy them from Dust Models.
Yep, what he said. They have a good deal for the bundles of bases. As to your question, I believe they use crackle paint to get the effect, and that you can buy in most craft stores.
Like the uniforms, could you tell me the colurs used for the greens and how you have layered them?
Thanks! The regular infantry are painted right off the manufacturer basecoat. I start with a brown wash. From there, I've simply built up gnarloc green from GW, a half and half gnarloc green and Wurm Green from Privateer Press with a final highlight of Wurm Green.
thanks mate, much appreciated will give that a go. Currently going mine gray and not so sure about the way there turning out.
