okay gave my broodlord a nice bath in soap suds, dried primed pitch black and i still noticed that he chips alittle anybody have experience with dealing with this... pain in his bio-exhaust vents.?
Even with all the paint he will still chip. You have to apply a matte varnish to fully protect him.
The Great Plague meets The Devourer of The Galaxy. What does that make us?
metal models are nptprious for chipping no matter how much paint is on them. Varnishing is probably the only way to signigantly stop chipping. Matte varnish is a bit thin though so you might want to put a coat of gloss varnish on first and then dull it back down with some matte/semi-gloss varnish.
Add me! Let me know your forum name too! =)
Metal chips, always has and it always will, tis the way of the world whipper-snapper. To deal with it you can try to use tougher varnish as people have pointed out. Watch out for the edges as they are what often gets chipped. What I suggest is that you make a Broodlord of your own that uses more plastic, such as plastic arms. This plastic provides a kind of barrier to protect the metal parts. I converted my own out of the metal model. The head and arms are plastic, here. buglands Just convert yourself a big nasty out of spare plastic parts, give your new pet a scary name and send it forth to wreak havoc!
