    I have a client who wants me to paint some Warmachine minis in the Menoth colour scheme and I\'m having trouble figuring out how they made that purplish/wine colour on the warjacks. If anyone can...
  3. I never vote less than 4.

    Personally I think that the voting system is okay the way it is. It\'s very rare for me to see a mini and think \"that should really be rated much higher.\"

    This isn\'t GW\'s scheme, but it works well:

    Here is a very important \"don\'t\" I\'ve discovered when using Dullcote. If you\'re using Citadel Storm Blue right next to white on your model, the blue will \"bleed\" slightly into the white when...
