As soon as the competition was announced and I read James' stipulations on winning the event, I started thinking about what to do. From Infamy range I had Holmes, Watson, Henrietta and Frank so I decided to use them all in a diorama.
Knowing that Infamy is about to become a skirmish game, I also ...byPublished on 16-05-2013 04:02 PM
One of the things I love to add to my figures is a design or pattern, something unique to make it stand out from the many other versions you may see around the web.

For example, the first step would be for any paint on top of the base coat to chip off leaving the under lying colour showing through. Then in the weathering process undercoat would show up, followed by dark rust spots, grim, rust streaks, oil streaks, dirt and finally worn but shiney metal. In following the natural process the weathering looks pretty convincing and quite realistic.
Of course it's often said that less is more and the same is true of weathering. It's hard to know when to stop and how much is too much. But ...
