Being a modeller for quite a few years now, I decided to explore the endless possibilities that the world (through internet) offers, and come up with a series of ways of building, modelling and painting fast (but not hastily), to create the worlds I was seeing in history books since I was little. . .If you care to join me. . . This is the place to be! And, I promise you to find the way (or ways)!!

Pegasus Waffen SS - Set 2

Hi everyone.


Most of us that play with little plastic figures, know Pegasus’ Waffen SS - Set 2 kit.


It was a unique (for the time it was released) kit, since it combined new methods of casting, that provided excellent 3d figures.


In this instance, I used two identical prone figures, which I painted in the same manner, but used different style of bases (one with dirt and one ‘urban’).


What’s different from other painting methods I did in the past, is that in this instance as in my previous work (last post), I used washes (through successive layers of colours) instead of Wood-Varnish Stain - Dip I was using.

















I hope you like them.


Have a good Wednesday night everyone!
T.

  6. Great work T although I can't understand what you mean by successive washes. Maybe you should show me by painting a figure step by step. In the past you painted a figure and then dipped it, the gloss was then toned back to matt with a matt cote correct?

    1. Yep! That was the previous painting method. I now, use successive layers of the colours, starting from dark to light, with the intervention of washes. I'll post a tutorial soon Greg! Thank you for your kind words.

    1. They do look great Thomas, too bad this set is on the small side of the scale. I hope the new figs to be as big as the rest of their cousins from other manufacturers. Takk!:)
