    That is awesome, thanks!

    What changes would you do (if any) if you were making this for Epic Armageddon or generally 6mm models?

    I have to say, I’ve been following your different blogs for years, and you’re an inspiration!!!

      Thanks man, really appreciated! I hadn’t really considered Epic in this context to be honest. That said I probably wouldn’t change much as pigments are scale agnostic so what I would do is use a less obvious texture underneath like filler to give volume and then same as in the video paint it an earth shade before using the pigments to establish the dusty ground.

    Oh how far we have come from a bit of gravel painted goblin green and if you are feeling fancy, drybrushing it :). Thanks for the tutorial. I have some pigments I bought a few months back but still have not used them. Bases seem like a good way to experiment with them.

      I miss my Goblin Green bases… they are very in vogue at the moment don’t you know? 🙂

    An excellent video and much appreciated. Never really considered using pigments to base in this way. Good to see the techniques in use as it’s hard to convey things in words sometimes. One thing I definitely liked about this is, is the experimentation with different or rare techniques not often considered let alone used. Please do more.

    I shall be adapting this as my bases are currently the same old tired Black/Brown ink, Graveyard Earth and Bleached Bone drybrush. Though, only on new models. I don’t fancy rebasing my Alpha Legion as yet…

      Thanks man that’s much appreciated and good feedback. I’d certainly like to do more videos like that, it’s just knowing what people would find useful. I think your point about different techniques is a good one and it’s what I will probably focus on in the short term. I’ve a couple in mind on different ways to do tank tracks so may focus on that next. Just a bit limited in setup as using phone to record which is not ideal. Might need to do a bit more research.

        Tanks tracks is another one that’s varied in what can be done. I’ve seen so many different ways. Streaking grime and painting and weathering vehicle interiors are two things I need to work on.

        The quality was more than fine. It was seeing the technique in use as well as seeing how you approached applying the pigment, dealing with mistakes and (most important and one massive benefit of a vid like this) the various things that you do from habit that you won’t even think to explain that many people may not even realise is part of the process.
