    Closer read of the stats reveals this works for acrylics, but in my unknowing youth I think I used the Airfix/Humbrols I had lying around. Not sure if this will be as effective as I think they're oil-based, but I'll have a look on that site. Cheers bud!

    The problem with Humbrol enamels is that most things that will shift it will wreck the plastic models. Enamel thinners will work great on metal models, but you'd likely end up with goo with resin or plastic.

    Yeah, I thought that might be the case. Bummer. If I can't find a specialist plastic-friendly example, I might try the one you suggested for the sake of £11.

    It'd be worth a shot. The primer spray on that white marine in my picture above was proper tough. All the old acrylic paint came away really easily after an hour or so soak, but it took an overnight one to shift that primer. I am thinking that was probably automotive spray primer rather than a modelling specific one, simply due to how tough it appeared and the fact that those paintjobs were easily 30 years old and I am not so sure that there were dedicated model primers back then...

    Although saying that, my primer of choice is still Halford's grey even with all the specialist ones about now.

    I can neither confirm nor deny that i ordered both that and the spearhead force.... :worried:
    I really need to set up a painting station and get cracking otherwise my grey pile of shame* will be too shameful...

    *which i think stands at: the Leviathan boxset, desolation squad, termy chaplin, a lietenant, a captain, and two space dwarves, not to mention all my old fantasy battles dwarves that need repainting; but i could be forgetting stuff...

    I'm trying to trick the backlog fairy:

    I painted the armour black!

    Hopefully over the weekend/week ahead I can get the highlighting done on the black.

    One day I'll finish those too :D

    Although I've been thinking I want to do a jungle one for the Catachans, but I'd need another cabinet and I have space for precisely none of that nonsense.

    Oh yes! If you're gonna collect political satire in toys, the best ones to collect are the most satirical of the Space Jerks :D

    It's a nifty model, although I didn't (and still don't) like the head. Looked very odd to me, hence the open helm helmet I ended up using on it

    Also, Deathwatch ammo now applies to heavy bolt rifles...

    Turns to Heavy Intercessors...

    Right, you useless gits, get back off the sub bench.

    Tyrannid Tyrannofex dropped a whopping 55 points, so he's getting off the sub bench as well.
    Genestealers might get a shout out now, especially with the Broodlord also dropping down
    as for Tau, the Crisis suits went up, but the Riptide went down so it basically evens out, same with my chaos Knights as the Brigands went up, but the desecrator went down

    OK, so not GW stuff, but I suppose that one part of these latest grabs could be used for other models and we have been talking about Gundam a little so:

    Grabbed a few bits and pieces off good old Ali:

    Some panel line scribing chisels:
    [​IMG]

    I have the Tamiya panel line scribing tool, but it is only one thickness and I have not had great results with being able to stay on track and not slip. I am hoping that these will be a little more accurate and there are different widths in there. Will be interesting to try them on something like Marines too with those little panel lines and stuff. Thinking it might work out well to scribe a line around the rim of the shoulder pads so that a panel line liquid can flow in there easily and stay sharp. Which reminds me, need to grab some enamel thinner too.

    A set of (more) metal upgrade parts for my PG Unicorn:
    [​IMG]

    Some of these bits are proper tiny, like 1.5mm long and 0.5mm in diameter (those bits in bag number 1)... Some very nicely turned parts though and I will have to decide whether to use some of the phot etch parts that I have or these.

    And lastly, a 3D printed backpack flight unit for the recent Gundam model that I put together earlier in the month:
    [​IMG]

    These have to be some of the best 3D prints that I have seen yet, someone has their printer proper dialled in. Ok, so they are still on the supports and will have been fully cured, but that's not a problem, I have decent (ish) clippers and old man reading glasses...

    Some of that I mistook for lock picking kit. I was wondering why your picks were smooth..

    And currently getting even smoother:

    [​IMG]

    This is one of the problems with buying edged tools from Ali, they can take a little fettling to get spot on. Thankfully I have a LOT of sharpening kit and plenty of experience using it, these scribers are so much better for a few minutes with the stone and strop. no snags or rough edges at all now.

    Oh, and the syringe at the top is for paint decanting and mixing..

    I've been getting off my ass and painting lately, so in addition to the spacebugs from the other day, I finally got these finished too:

    Now, four or five more other 'to sell' models that I need to finish and then on to some Templars, annnnd finally the Earth Shakers and Medusa, although I did already to some roughing in of camo patterns on those:

    Mate, the colouring on those field guns and crews is superb. Nice weathering too.

    With those gloves on, bum-wiping suddenly becomes a whole new lottery of risk.
