I have been testing the painting guide with new figures from Gringos 40s.

I am quite pleased with this - both the painting and the picture.

Canon EOS 60D with EF100mm f/2.8 Macro USM at F 8.0 and 1/60th with ISO automatic at 800.

Here is the PBR on a transparent wargaming base.



And here is a Sarissa house with my attempt to pep up an MDF kit by prepainting, covering the tabs and slots and adding thatch.
There will be a tutorial for this.



And here is a waterline LVTP-5 from Butlers Printed Models which is my next project.
It is a nice model but I am not sure how to clean up the wood grain effect yet.
