    For those using my paint method shown earlier in this thread GW's Flesh Wash is no longer made and hard to find. However, I've found a replacement in the form of Vallejo's Game Ink - #72093 Skin Wash. Dark streaks can be added in using #72094 Black. Both of these are in dropper bottles so they can be used economically by dropping onto the stock direct or the brush and then blended in. I'm trying it for the first time now and so far the results look good. Disadvantage? Smells a bit like disinfectant or some other medical product

    Wow. That's even dirtier and grimier than I expected! And by that, I mean it's even better than I expected. I LOVE IT!

    Thanks for taking your time with it Simon. The quality shows. Flawless.

    Can't wait to put my hands on it.

    Finished pieces are being supplied broken down (stock/grip/barrel) as usual but I am also now leaving the scope unnattached for shipping purposes. For trooping it should be glued (epoxy or s'glue) for added strength, but if only for display it can be simply clipped in place.

    Pausing the action just after Fett lands but before Luke chops it u can see the whole blaster is a dirty browny colour. The(my) stock is cast from a real wood stock so the castings have a grained effect, it makes sense for it to have a wood pattern on it IMO so this is what i do and then i put some muck effect in patches over the top.
