As avid followers will know (chuckles to himself) I was struggling somewhat trying to get Non-metallic-metal to work for this great miniature from Oathsworn.
My first and second efforts were not happy – and I appealed to the wider community for some input which I received many a useful comment and link to online tutorials. I did have another run at the sword in particular (and I was sure I’d taken pictures but for the life of me cannot find them right now). It remained “okay” but I didn’t get that “finished!” feeling we all look for when painting something up.
I had Haggis propped in a prime eye-ball position and mulled over what to do for a good number of weeks. Try again or go metal? Well the other day I said enough is enough and went with the latter. I laugh at myself now but within a minute or two of applying the base coat a great sense of relief came over me – “that was more like it!” I thought to myself.
Anyway, I thought I’d post this follow up for anyone that was interested in how this particular tale ended. “I gave up on NMM!” But I don’t see it as a defeat – I see the finished job as one that I am happy with. Maybe I’m just too old school for NMM. I will, when I get round to painting up some Infinity models, try again.
