Durthu is still in Stage 1: So he's looking very incomplete right now.
So, what can I tell you about Scale 75 Fantasy and Games Range?
1) These paints are much thinner than the regular Scale 75... don't need much to any shaking like their cousins, which you need to shake to death. You also need to barely thin them, since they're really thin enough.
2) Coverage. So, over a white undercoat, most of the colors will adequately cover in one or two coats maximum. It was actually kind of insane, because I was covering deep browns with faded greens, crimson with bright orange, etc. Of course, sometimes it takes a couple coats.
Also, I'm proud to announce that the mid-yellow color covered over the white primer in about one or two coats without a problem!
3) The metallics are gorgeous, but the most difficult part of the Scale 75 range that I bought. Layering them over a dark steel didn't really work too well. Neither did layering them over a flat black... might try the vallejo gloss black sometimes and see if that helps.
4) Inks are great so far! The only ink on Durthu at the moment is a mix of violet + chestnut brown ink, which is on the main color of the wood. The wood was a deep bruised red before, now it's a deep wooden brown, but still with a hint of that red beneath.
5) I applied all of this by brush and hand, since my airbrush is now out of commission again
