Title: M&m Scarabs
Brother Captain - March 25, 2007 01:27 AM (GMT)
I had another go at trying Foundation Paints recently and I decided I wanted to paint some bright colours. Then the idea sprang into my mind. Since I had some spare bases of Scarabs laying around why not paint one of them in bright colours. Then I remembered I like M&Ms (the variety with the peanuts inside being my favorite) so the M&M Scarabs were born. :lol: The pictures could have been better but that's the best I can do at 3:30 am :tongue:
I hope you like 'em. And here's the link if you 'd like to vote on CoolMiniOrNot:http://www.coolminiornot.com/153420

These look SO cool! Mind if I borrow the idea? ^_^
I'd hate to be the poor Guardsmen having to choose between killing them, keeping them as pets or eating them (in turn, killing them!) :D

As your attorney, I must advise you to change the name of these confections to avoid litigation. Perhaps "N & N's" since theyre of Necron origin.
Of course, these would be the "fun size" package.

Yeah, they make me hungry too. :D Of course you can borrow the idea Helgast Headhunter. I'd like to see an army of them... ;)
As for the name I'll keep it for now. If M&M sues me I'll ask for your help Redshirt. :D

Oh... sweet ^_^ The orange one is my favorite, it looks best in my opinion :lol: Say... is that with one or several coats of foundation paint? I've heard some pretty amazing stuff about their coverage.

I painted one slightly thined down colour of Foundation Paint, then 1 or 2 coats of normal GW colours and the highhlights. It might sound strange but I think Foundation Paints cover better if they are slightly thinned down. And they don't ruin details as well.
