Slinky - You have the greatest avatar ever man.
I did a thin layer of Iyanden Darksun mixed with the Dark Flesh/orange mix I'd been highlighting everyone with, and then drybrushed pure Iyanden Darksun before washing with Gryphonne Sepia. I'm thinking a highlight of Bleached Bone or Rotting Flesh or Deneb Stone + Iyanden, but haven't decided yet. I might do those the slow and painful way rather than drybrushing, too... Lately I've found that I don't like using "stock" GW colours for highlighting or shading other colours, I prefer to mix the base up or down a shade to keep some kind of continuity. The exceptions are when I want high contrast for highlighting blacks, or NMM.
As for the second question... ahahaha. I don't have a lot of room at all, especially considering my Transformers collection on top of my minis and Gundam models (I realised the flat had kinda reached critical mass as I just got a Grand Max... Which I have nowhere to store). ^^; I'm actually building a shed at my parents' place to store all my stuff while I'm off in Japan as there's not enough space in my old room there. If my partner and current flatmate weren't also gamers/modellers, I'm sure they'd kill me (the Battle Sisters in the background of some of the pics are my partner's, for example). As it stands, we just try not to trip over each others' minis! I do have a lot of stuff though... I went through a massive buying spree on ebay last summer with the intention of stripping, repainting, and selling stuff, but never got round to it, so I have a LOT of raw materials, especially Marines. That, and I seem to have a lucky gift of people giving me stuff I need for conversions if I ask nicely... I just owe a lot of people a lot of drinks at this point.
In the space of one week, two separate people gave me a Baneblade and a Daemonhunters Army respectively, both insisting that I was doing THEM a favour, not the other way round... It's only that kind of stuff happening that means I can afford to keep this hobby up, actually...
Okay, ramble over! As an aside, I'm considering the following build for an army;
Astorath (who I have but haven't painted yet)
10 man Assault Squad in LR, Inferno Pistols X2, Sgt Power Weapon
7 man Assault Squad with JP X2, one inferno pistol each, one Sgt with PW, one with Twin Lightning Claws
Stormraven, Las and Multi-meltas
Death Company, 5 man
Comes out at around 1500, ad I do have all the minis now, besides needing to model some right Dread CCW arms.
Oh, and does anyone have any ideas about how to keep plastic arms on metal torsos? I used to just glue them back in the day, but that doesn't cut it anymore and I keep breaking drills on my old metal Death Company minis trying to pin them...
