Barry!! We need you!

If you get time, could you possibly re-load some of the pics you used in this thread?

There are some new painters that could use your experience.

Sorry Force,

Been a little to busy at work !

Back for a while now though........and going through the images and updating everything for you guys :D

Hey Drago.

Yes sorry about that, My job gets very involved sometimes and I rarely have time to sleep....let alone spent a few hours enjoying the forum.

but ill try and stay a bit more involved over the coming months.

Hey CyCo.

Yes This one was hard, infact i'm so Burnt out i'm thinking of packing it in.

10 years ago I could do the crazy hours easily.......now i'm in my 40's and i'm finding it harder.

plus the Studios have Shortened the deadlines for producing everything, so the job has got a lot harder.

Producers don't seem to understand that you cant fit three months work into two weeks !

I have one more Film to do before Christmas.

Then plan what to do in the new year.

At the moment i'm catching up on sleep and enjoying reading through everyone's work :D

 

Take care and all the best,

Barry.

Ha Ha no not Star Wars.

I Make Armour and Props...........But I cant say what i'm currently working on.

Production company's like Disney and Marvel like to keep things Hush Hush as do DC and Warner brothers.

Some times I might have to sign a clause that nothing gets said or posted on social media until after the Film or TV series has aired,

:D

Understand completely. Have a mate in the industry here in Oz.

Let us know when it's released though.   ;)

The weathered one is the one on the left. It was very minor cosmetic stuff but I wanted to have some exhaust smog on the engines. I normally will paint the astromechs the color of the astromech I use with that ship. I also add some red paint on the engines.

This thread saved my sanity through finals. I haven't had time to paint, but have been able to de-stress by drawing it all onto my poor ships. Thanks Barry!

And nice to see Mackaywarrior, Looks great !

All the best guys.

Barry.

I've seen a lot of new names in this forum since January, and want anyone on the fence about personalizing their squadrons because painting is too much effort to see this alternative. In other words.... BUMP.

Glad to see the Pencil Guide is still proving useful for some of you.

Nice to also see lots of new people on the Forum ?

All the best

Barry.

Thread necro but we'll deserved! 

Holy **** this is awesome. I am painting miniatures for over 20 years now but this thread feels like so next level to me! 

Just painted some models in the old GW fashion but I am not sold since it looks too clean so it doesn't work for me. 

But this technique... Gonna give it a try once I get home from holidays. Wanted to start a thread for my repaints when I return but this has to wait for the pencil ?

Why isn't this sticky? 

Great job Barry, you are a hero

Barry! Haven't heard from you in months. Please give us an update on how things are going.

Hello Force.

Yes. Sorry. its been a really busy year !

Job has been none stop, plus I have....well kind of lost interest in all of the Star Wars pal-ova going on.

We also tried Ver 2 of X wing and just cant get into it. ( Even Considering selling all of my models and conversions ! )

So I decided to leave it for a while, See if my enthusiasm comes back.

I see the Forum is going well and all of the work that everyone is doing looks FANTASTIC !

Hope all is well.

Take care and all the best,

Barry.
