Popped into my local gws this afternoon to pick up my copy of black reach before work and they were having some sort of who wants to be a millionaire type quiz thing, and well I did quite well, won a copy of white dwarf a space marine combat squad, some snap fit marines and several bars of chocolate!
All due to my freakish ability to absorb totally useless pieces of information, How else would I have known that the maximum airspeed of a land speeder is 350 kph???? I didn't even know that I knew that!
p.s it felt good to show my superiority over 13 year old children! mwuahahahaha!
Finally made a proper start on my Dreadnaught (see, this is why I never finish anything, always trying to do everything at the same damn time) figured I should as it is the first model I picked up when I decided to get back into the hobby :-)
Anyhoo I stripped the old terrible paid job off, primed it with Tamiya superfine grey primer (which is great btw) and applied the basecoat with my airbrush.
Came out pretty well methinks. Once that was out of the way I thought i'd try and give the previously basecoated command squad a wash using the new citadel washes. So i mixed up a 50/50 mix of black and blue wash and gave them all a liberal spraying!
As you can see from the comparison pic below it really darkened the base blue colour to quite a blacky blue compared with the unwashed dready.
I'm not quite sure if I like it or not, maybe a little less black in the mix would be better, hmm what do you all think?
