Leo, Kneejoint, Thank you. We're not quite done with OL'Kraus. We kinda had to finish him quik for the contest. I was still painting his sword the night before we had to leave for Vegas. I want to add some more detail to his sword and boots. Plus Laura has a black tunic with dragons on it she made for him. He was inspired by the great work Storm has done with his Drow.
Thanks again,
Paul

Really unique! The Drow rule!

Did you spraypaint the full body or was it dyed in some way?

Keep it up. Would love to see a fantasy group bash one day with Storm's group.
He is sprayed with the vinyl auto interior paint. We found that trying to dye figures often ends up with the vinyl of the head turning out one color and the plastic of the body has a different shade. The vinyl spray paints don't do this.
They hold very well to the plastic and vinyl figure parts and do'nt chip as much as other paints.
We do have a lady in the works for Kraus. So we're hoping to show them together some time in the future.
Thank you again,
Thanks Roger, The white and blue against the black does kind of give him an x-ray look.

Mike, Bshore, Thank you gents.
Roger I agree, of all the paints I've used between 1/6th and 1/35th minitures I like Vallejo the best. We got to meet the owner of the company and his wife at the I hobby show and they were very nice people. we hope to be able to carry their paints in the store soon. From talking to paint people, ie. Vallejo, Testors,etc. Vallejo varnish is suppose to be one of the best things to seal a figure with for painting. I just wish it came in a spray form instead of having to set it up in an air brush.
Right now we use MSC which is pretty good stuff. But when we get room for a paint booth we plan on switching to Vallejo Varnish.
Thank you again,
Paul
