Regardless of how you decided, you did a great job. Your Klingons look really good. I love the shading.

Thank you. Very Happy

For the shading wash I used a little black paint mixed with, believe it or not, a liquid floor cleaner available in Australia called Pledge One Go. I have found that it runs to the recesses a lot more easily than black ink mixed with water does.

Actually, most of us in the US recommend adding a bit of Future floor polish to the paint / water wash.

The floor polish reduces the surface tension of the wash mixture allowing it to flow into the recesses much more easily. Future is the preferred brand because it doesn't discolor the mixture like some of the cheaper, lower-quality polishes do.

I did my very first Future washes a few weeks ago and they turned out quite well.

Well, if you go forward in time for the sequel... snatch up as many SFB minis as you can that aren't being produced now, bring them back, and send them to SVC so he can get them on the market earlier. Cool

Awesome. Why don't you send it to VC for production... wait a minute! If you've got a time machine, why you go back 2 months and sendto him... that way, it'll be released with the Feb '08 round of new minis. Smile
