    Thanks Zab. As its table top standard it does the trick without going too far. It means I can crack through things that bit quicker.

    it's a testament to your skill and professionalism that you want to get speed AND quality for your clients. Too many commission painters sacrifice one for the other and lose clients or income

    You freaking good at what you'r doing mate! I wish I could get clients, this way I could do some cash on the side, don't know, I might try e-bay one day :S You got to find what's hot and what ppl play I guess, not sure ppl would buy my necron? x-wings stuff? I think it's popular.

    Thanks Joce.
    It started for me by selling my Lotr collection. A few people said, I like your stuff, so I offered commission work. And from there it has taken off. I started last October and have had constant work, some lined up for next year already. The down side is my own work suffers, but I don't plan commissions forever, it is literally to pay for my hobby - and to that end its a complete success.

    First start on a little display dio. It will show the ambush on Theodred from LOTR. It's the clients favourite scene and for me a nice change from table top.
    itwill be a riverside with 3 Uruks and mounted Theodred. It's my first attempt using resin for the river, so a nice learning curve

    Me too, I'm eager to see your experiences with resin for water, all I know is waterproof it as much as possible

    All in all this took me 1.5 minutes to do and I think the effect works - well for me anyway.

    So to start
    Black primer
    Now literally liberal coats, not concerned if you exactly cover everything as showing the lower levels helps the beaten up effect.
    VMC Tinny Tin
    Scale 75 Heavy Metal

    Now stipple pure VGC Beasty Brown - the pure paint creates texture.

    And that's it - heres the look

    that looks good to me, especially for the time taken to do
