        So I should have finished/quiter style pics up tomorrow night.

              OK, I know I haven't been posting in here, but I've been sorting out the new forum. - My excuse and I'm sticking to it. So I intend getting back to the figure tomorrow I should have a new WiP up tomorrow, then Scott will be blown away by his competition. ;)

                OK I promised a WiP of my knight, so here it is. I've now finished the legs, started & restarted the shield and have left the undercoat on the breast & bck plates to show that I am trying to use Liz's technique for metals.

                  Wow, that looks great. Since I struggle with metals so much I can really appreciate what you've done here. 3rd spot should be as good as yours when you get that finished up!

                  I tried Liz's tech on the breastplate on my entry..... I don't think I did it right. After I finished applying the basecoats of my boltgun metal, even in several very thin layers, it just overpowered the grey and white I had put down on the base.

                  Anyway well done, look forward to seeing this finished!

                    I have to admit that I don't think I got the transitions in the greys smooth enough, so my metallics ended up being undercoated with the graduations but with a lot of shading & highlighting on top.

                    Well finished the torso & shield tonight. Need to get the arms & helmet done tomorrow, then the wooden base on Saturday as I intend to wrap it Saturday night. It means rushing it a little, but it should be alright.

                    As to winning 3rd spot, I'm not so sure, you've done a great job on your rider, I think it's too close to call.

                      Make the transitions on the blacks and whites underneith stronger. They have to really show up in order not to be over-powered. Almost cartoon-like. Dead black in the low points and bright white on the high. Then when you go over the top it will help you keep from adding so much paint over the top.

                        Thanks Liz. I'll probably not bother now, as I need to get this one done. But I have some other figures here I could try it out on I definitely want to get this technique nailed.

                          Another WiP and I think I've cracked the undercoating technique. The helmet was done using it and I use about half the metallic paint I would normally. The shouldr pads have been undercoated ready too.
