Oh man, can't wait for the Boba!! He is sitting in my paint area just staring back at me cause I knew it was coming down the pipe from Sorastro.
Hey Sorastro - I've said it in about 3 different forums now, but you're work is so great. I'm a first time miniature painter and would never have even stepped into the realm if not for your videos. What started as just a hope to get the figures on the table has turned into a love for the hobby. I look forward to the late night when I can sit at the table and work (not as much as I love hanging with my 17-month-old little boy, but now I have something to look forward to once he's asleep.)
I posted a question on your Probe Droid youtube video about my elite droid with gold. Thought I'd share the work in progress. The "silver with brown tint was" droid and the "silver with a blue tint wash" I'm really happy with. Still have to weather them and finish the process, but I like the overall tones. My "gold" idea, however, not so much. I think using the brown/yellow mix was overkill. I think I will try an additional wash with just the brown (agrax), and maybe dry-brush a bit of gold? The current color does give me some color ideas for a certain protocol droid, though.
