Wow, excellent painting. I particularly like the eyes on the Iron Giant. 8)

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.
