From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.
In preparing models for Tray 8, I had the chance to compare my new practise of using zenithal undercoats with my old way of simply choosing black, white, or grey. Here’s two models from the current tray side by side:
Here we have a model undercoated only in white compared to one where I sprayed black from underneath, gray straight ahead, and white from on top. The model on the left is no less detailed than the other, but those details don’t stand out in the same way.
The difference is more noticeable when it’s two of the same model:
Along with the elf from above, the black knight on the right was undercoated with onl a white spray. While the detail is not obscured, it doesn not stand out so clearly as when a zenithal approach is taken. There’s about 10 years and a lot of YouTube videos in between these two undercoats.
One of the pleasant aspects of pulling out old models for my trays is being able to easily compare my old approaches with my current practise and see the improvements.
