    I could have spent an entire day longer on this guy but he's only for my collection.

    At my wife's insistence I've started a star wars legion army with a view to actually playing with my toys with actual real people. I've gone for a loose painterly style because it's a very fun way to paint and relatively quick so should sustain my interest long enough to get an army done.

    They look great. Wouldn't think they were painted so quickly.

    There are a lot of variables than can affect the performance of a glaze so without seeing what you are doing it's hard to say exactly what is going wrong. I would say that a glaze isn't the best choice of technique. Of course you can paint however you like but glazing, for me at least, is more for local colour changes and smoothing transitions. Whilst it is possible to use glazing for shading it helps to have a good understanding of how the technique works first. Looking at the model I would suggest using washes as they are going to pick out all of that skin texture and they are a lot easier and quicker to apply. This is what I've been painting this week:

    At the rate I'm going I'll be still painting your models well into my old age. I haven't decided on the water yet. I'll probably look for some reference images first.

    The finished gang Took longer than I would have liked due to the numerous small details and variety of colours and the final session was a real slog. But they're done and I also tried out, quite successfully, a few ideas that'll prove to be useful on future models.

    Here's the first part of a House Escher gang. Supposed to be a quick gaming standard but I got a little carried away.

    Painted up a couple of the shadespire sets. Quite fun to paint, especially the orcs, and easy. Hopefully they'll sell easily too otherwise it's off to the amazon warehouse for me.

    Bought a few sets of gw miniatures this week. It's remarkable how much a difference it makes when care is taken to make the models easy to assemble as apposed to the knight models' approach which is to not give a fuck.

    That's great Joe. Really lovely colours and a very natural looking style.

    That's a great centrepiece @feltmonkey I thought a bit more about your airbrushing problem and I think you would be better by going a bit slower with the paint application. When applying very thing paint through an airbrush it's important to allow the paint time to dry. If you keep pushing paint onto the same area the pressure will move it around the surface. I get around this by slowing moving the trigger back and forth. I keep the trigger depressed so that I can use the airflow to help dry the paint. For basecoating I'll move around the model as I'm doing this whereas for spot highlights I'll use a longer pause between sprays and keep the brush fixed in place.
