So yesterday there was some disappointing news about the status of War Room being delayed. It was originally planned for late April but now it's looking like the middle of May will be when we can expect this awesome app. I didn't share it on here but if you had checked out the Facebook page you would have found out about it yesterday! Ha! And you thought I wasn't going to plug the Facebook page today...
First here is Badab Black vs. Nuln Oil over just a white primer:
You'll notice that the Nuln Oil has a more even coverage, but it makes the overall model darker. I'm still not sure which one I prefer, but since Badab Black will no longer be manufactured, it means that Badab Black has a limited supply anyway, so the transition is more or less necessary. The Badab Black was a little more friendly with white, and since my Cygnar feature a lot of white (and I wanted to do so moreso with my Morrowan models), I'm a little sad that the Nuln Oil ends up being darker.
Ultimately, I think that the shades do exactly what they're supposed to do, and shade the parts of the model you want instead of being the all-inclusive step that the old washes were. I do like how there's less pooling with Nuln Oil than Badab Black (you can see it more clearly on the shield and the bottom of the robes).
And here's Harlan Versh! I love this guy as he basically looks like a badass cowboy pastor:
Anyway, Harlan was really straight-forward to paint and quite fun and easy. I got him done in around 2-3 hours - and that's including drying time between layers.
