…and now for something completely different...

OK, so after two years I've finally given in to having a section of the FORUM specifically set up to discuss painting techniques, display examples, show your latest projects and chat about this vital part of the hobby. Manufacturers please feel free to post up your sculpts, ask questions about what the gamers are after and generally promote your work.. no charge! Painters, please also feel free to post up your work for comment and critique. I can't promise the unreserved adulation characteristic of some other fora but I would hope you'd get constructive and measured comment!

…and now for something completely different...

My second attempt at modern British MTP camouflage pattern - not the easiest of subjects I can assure you!!! :cry:

Not 100% happy with it, but will more than suffice for the games table and does look better in reality...

Very nice indeed. I've been struggling with more modern camo myself recently so I know what you're going through :wink:

Give me a nice easy splinter pattern any day!

Excellent cammo- something that is very difficult to get right on many Moderns I think. 8) 8) 8) 8) 8)

Good job, MTP is a swine to paint in portrait painting too. That weird fawn/ beige like colour is a bugger to mix and blend!
