    First tyranid .... of 120

    I think I'm going to go with this scheme. Since there are a 120 bugs, the scheme has to be as simple as possible.



    Step 1: Spray prime Rustoleum High Heat (Almond)
    Step 2: Basecoat carapace in Mechrite Red
    Step 3: Wash entire figure in Liquitex Raw Umber (same mixing properties as Paynes Grey)
    Step 4. Give mount, talons, and hooves a wash of Badab Black. Pick out eyes in Scorpion Green and the teeth in Skull White.
    I will probably thicken my wash a little bit and maybe edge the carapace in a lighter color, but first things first.

    That is a great speed job. The third step make the effect look like dipping, but their is no shine or goop in the joints. I really like this technique and they will look great in numbers!
    Good luck finishing them all.

    Basically washes? Really? VERY nice. I looked at your picture and my first thought was that you would be spending too much time on each one, because they looked so nice. Keep it up!

    Well, the Raw Umber is made by Liquitex (same properties as the Paynes Grey I use). We had originally thought of doing the carapaces in purple, but that would have required a second wash ... of Paynes Grey. In the interests of sanity, I went with the red, which I can wash with the same deep brown.

    I know that I should not be bringing this back form the dead, but I had to ask a question. what was the ration of paint to water that you used for the liquitex, and could I please see a close up of a finished model? I would like to decide if I want to use this quick scheme or not. Thanks!

    I did get your PM. I need to take a closer picture and post it. Regarding ratio of water: glaze medium: Liquitex, I'm really not sure. I use a straw as a dropper and add about equal amounts of glaze medium and Liquitex and then water to thin. might want to try this out on a test mini first.

    Is the glaze medium essential? If so, where do I get it?
    Thanks!

    I use both Liquitex Glaze Medium and Vallejo Glaze Medium. With something like the Tyranids, I use the Liquitex Glaze Medium (you can find this at Michaels Arts and Crafts, Ben Franklin's etc) because it's easier to measure out a "drop" from the medium and the paint. The glaze medium helps the wash run a little easier to fill those small crevices and results in less build up on the high areas.

    Thanks a lot. I needed a scheme that would take little time and still looked good. I have 100 gaunts/genestealers to paint
