    new..

    hi guys..

    i am fairly new to the hobby, i did paint some models like 7 years ogo but cant say i remember to much.
    i'm looking to start painting again tho and bought that beginners pack with some space marines...

    i also bought the colours i want to paint them.

    now i've been reading the beginners guides and all that.. but i also want to do the dirt/dust effect.. like you see on tanks and the feet of the soldiers..

    also the damaged armor is nice but maybe a bit hard for now..

    anyway can some1 tell or guide me to a good tutorial for the dirt dust effects??

    Sure. If you want it to be nice and simple, You can just give it a few light drybrushes of graveyard earth and scorched brown, moving the brush in an upward motion from the boots, rather than side to side.

    hope this helps!

    from what i've heard in the past GW Purity Seal was littered with problems and rather expensive (They may have changed this but i doubt it..)

    I would invest in some testors dullcote and buy a gloss varnish also.

    1. Spray on the gloss and wait for it to dry etc. This will create a strong protective layer
    2. Spray on the matt finish. This will get rid of the horrible shine.
