I painted these up to be one army – unfortunately, due to my rubbishness at photography, I couldn’t get them photographed together. But here they are as indivdual units:
The basic technique for the metallics was to go from dark to light, then shade-down with very thin ink washes (three different colours: Gryphonne Sepia, Devlan Mud, and Black – about four layers of each).

A lot has been written about the problems of Finecast – I don’t intend to repeat them here; just to demonstrate that it’s easy enough to set right.

This is a pricey model, and I guess the seller I bought this from wanted to sell it because they were gutted at the poor quality. It’s actually really easy to put right – just soak the model in fresh-boiled water for 20-30 seconds, and the resin becomes soft and pliable. Shape it as you want – and leave it to cool for half a minute. You can do this as many times as you need to (a pair of rubber gloves is a good idea – I have asbestos hands from playing guitar).
Much, much easier to fix than any other material, I reckon:
There were a few areas that needed greenstuffing, but personally, I really enjoyed painting this.
