Excellent - the use of Vanguard batteries/ turrets is really cool. Liking that wee laser platform too!

got a couple of hours to myself today so the mackay mkII orbital has had a dose of paint.
not a great shot but what I've done is add more lighter highlights than on my devastatus/armageddon fleet just to differentiate the station somewhat. went for slate grey roof panels and weathered bronze on the aerial (but that doesn't show too well on this pic.
fyi the ad-tit spire kit has lots of sharp contrasts to its detail making it ideal for basecoat/wash/drybrush technique oftimes used for bfg so this is +/- how i'll do the starfort too...

it'll have a bronze/verdigrised dome with a very golden eagle, slate grey spires/butress tops, and slate grey/tarmac black flat areas.  ;D

I like the colour so far. Not too visible. A station will hardly have brightfull colours, while a vessel will be painted that way a more frequent way i suppose.

That looks amazing. But, surely, you need more than one? ;)

What in hell's satans am I going to do with ten!? I've only a half bedroom house so space is a serious premium. Not collecting to game just to paint/convert these days... Otherwise would have to ditch half my collection each year to make room for fresh...

See, Marell have some sage advice!  :P ;D

I can sympathise with those issues though. I had to pack all of my things away for about 2 years whilst I was building my new house. Luckily, I am in there now and have a converted stable as my gaming room AND have a hobby room/study to escape into and dodge adult responsibilities.  ;D

Another possibility is that you store all your things at my place. I wont charge you rent or anything!!

Damn man that sounds like my dream setup. I rent a tiny little lodge house bungalo in Chigwell that is just me the missus and the kitty. 1/2 a bedroom(10'x7'), lounge, kitchen and bathroom. That's it indoors... The garden on the other hand... Huge! Perhaps a decent high-end shed come summerhouse/workroom is in order but who will pay for it is anyone's guess... Love it though... Home is home...

osjc's contrast review:

well you can colour me... unimpressed.

pure gimmic...

you could probably make your own by mixing shade and colour together to be honest! lOL
essentially,  they're just fancy named glazes that dry flat. using the official contrast undercoat bases, is not vital imho and to be honest yields better results on things like Caucasian skin. e.g.

a base of 50/50 wraithbone and  cadian fleshtone, roughly highligted/layered up with more wraithbone as a successive admix, then the guilliman flesh is much more preferable to guilliman flesh straight over wriathbone. (that is unless you want the flesh to look anemic! if you're umming and ahhing due to cost, save your money. instead invest in more time to perfect your current skill level.  seriously, I'm cross at how gw has sold this as talent in a bottle, (not that I thought it would be as much, too much of an old soak to fall for media hype these days)  but I feel sorry for the kids who will feel like they're doing something wrong when it dont work that way...

dont get me wrong, they'll have their uses:
alternative/more gentle shades for skin.
nice blending on capes/tabbards, 
metal undercoat and contrast glaze for glowy power weapons/alternative enameled/anodized armour effect.
easy yellow for another example but, shit, we've all been using the white undercoat, successive shade/glaze method for yellow since before the old king died anyway, not to mention that inks and washes/shade have been allowing us to do the other stuff too so I dont really see the big deal here.
perhaps its just me. I dunno. put it this way, I can see me using the flesh and yellow one and thats it... but then Ive been at it for a while and have learnt other ways of doing stuff that yield just as good(if not better) results but may take longer. big deal... why is the world so impatient these days...

oh, don't even get me started on the apothacary "white" one  ::) that i thought to be an answer to my not painting white good issue. you can forget that!
