We finally finished painting our Arcantrik Force Generator. This is the model that first made us sit up and notice that miniatures games were a thing, and now it's ready to eff some shit up on the battlefield ... and look pretty on our shelves.

A spindly white model with blue power glow, which looks sort of like a robotic space flea perched on the snow. It has a turbine in the centre, behind a large armour plate, and three long, upraised appendages with have metal tips that point towards a convergence in the air above it.

It's supposed to have three doods standing on the base controlling it, but we decided to use them in other projects.

Yes, it is on our blanket. We took it with us when we curled up on our bed with our laptop. We're such a dork.

Oh gosh it looks so good. <3 Nicely done!

I like the little highlights in the blue stripes.

Anything requiring light over dark is difficult in my book. >.>b

... you know, I can't tell a difference in photos. ^^ But then, I use flat grey primer on absolutely everything.

It works pretty well! I haven't had any trouble with it, aside from ordinary "why didn't my gesso stick to this" troubles, generally stemming from not enough scrubbing before I prime.

On the few minis where I want my colors to be really bright, I'll drybrush opaque white over the grey where I want the bright colors. Takes very little time because I'm not being super detailed, I'm just bringing up texture.

Then again, I use artist acrylics, some of which are translucent. That may not even be necessary with mini paints; I seem to recall them being pretty opaque.

Ooh neat. I'd love to hear about your results if you start doing more with washes. :D

Looks awesome! Especially the detail work, very tidy. I'm always impressed by that sort of thing - I can't even paint my nails without splishing colour all over, nevermind paint delicate little spots like that.
