Got a question with the new washes.

Did you paint the armor silver and then use the wash or did you do some color of green and then apply the wash?

I really like the look of them.

Cheers

Have to support: fabulous stuff! :o
Cleanly painted metallics are one of my greatest problems. You've resolved this in a great manner. I'd like to join Tri3 in asking for your 'washing method'. Hm, sounds odd. ;)

Oustanding work, they look fantastic  :-* :-* I have to second Marc's comments about the Iron Giant robots, they work really well with the Hydra models. And I'll third Tri3's request for a tutorial on using those washes.

Well, I have one of those at home - however, looking at your paintjob makes me feel... insignificant.

Wow,

For some reason I am seeing green in your pictures, which is sort of weird if you didn't use it.  Very cool.  I will have to try your method out.

Here is a good article on the GW washes

Ha! I've got some of that gunmetal blue, but have never worked out a good use for it until now  :D

Now all I need are some robots......

Pardon my ignorance, but where did you get the iron giant figures?
