I acnnot add to what has already been said, but I can hit the APPLAUD button.

I hit it again - you should too!
If sing, sang, and sung, sink, sank, and sunk, and drink, drank, and drunk, how is it that it isn't bring, brang, and brung, think, thank and thunk, and ding, dang, and dung?

Don't even get me started about bad, badder and baddest.  Run, ran AND run...again?  C'mon!

Your shading technique is very good.   Nice combination of bright color and then heavy shadows to make the figure really stand out.   

Great job!

Yes, I have painted all figures presented here. The DL figures are from my early projets about 6 years ago. All DL is painted with synthetic Humbroll colors.

Exactly. I mix dark colors with water to make shade a litle bit transcendent on the edge of the line, but not so much to have sufficiently dark lines. Often I make shade only with mix a litle bit of black with base color.

Aaah.  :) Would you manage to finish a small mini in one day if you "stress painted" the mini with the same technique? And what is the average time you use on a mini? I'm just curious, because I have limited time to painting, so when I paint, I want to paint a lot, but also paint them good. Anyways, thanks for the previous answer, I'm def gonna practice on a mini. Patience and a clear vision is key I guess. :)

My last project - the Cyber DD - takes about 30-40 hours with decolouring, mould lines cleaning (the hardest job), preparing, painting and varnishing. Usualy I paint much slower, but this project was gift for my UWZ mate, so it was quite quick job.

Beautiful work....

  I like the sniper especially and I think I may work on some of my Catachans in order to bring them into use for UWZ.

The beauty of them is that they can double as LI in a pinch too....  just make sure one has the right weapons created for appropriate use. :)
