thankyou all so much for the great comments guys,....and yes! it is an iphone haha so yea the banding is very annoying, and i had two lamps inches away from the model an it still looked very dark, i wish oi had a better camera because the highlights don't look as crisp as they do in person.
and yes!! totally agree about the lighting effects,...at the moment they look very basic, i didnt want to over do it to start with because this is my first try at OSL "object source lighting, but when i have done the same thing the whole squad of 6 i will feel a lot more confident and go back and make small improvements to all of it, and yes i was thinking of a glaze because i love the thought of sting wings being slightly purple,....makes them look even more impressive, because stingwings are fairly vulgar,....which i really like :S
i think GW have a purple glaze now, but i have never used them, also i would feel a little scared to try and make my own, unfortunatly i don't have leviathan purple wash or i would have watered that down, also i do like the turquoise,...so i wouldnt want to change that too much,....hmmm,....anyway i have nearly done the strain leader and another stingwing, but i felt like i was starting to go insane painting them through the night, so i started painting my second battle suit, heavily converted of course, sculpted bellowing flames coming from the flamer and a banner on the back,...i also painted the tau longo and a kind of tokyo sunrise type pattern on it too,...so i will be posting that along side my other suit here soon i hope you will all like them
