Les Bursley over at AwesomePaintJob.com has released his wash recipe. Now, you might not have been aware of it, but Les was selling his washes and pigments for a while, but recently, it was shut down because he needed to be a member of a particular organization. Someone reported him apparently, and he was no longer allowed to sell his washes or pigments. However, in true form, he released his recipe in order to provide the masses with a simple, easy to use recipe for his excellent washes.
I'm especially excited because I had been planning on buying some of his Soft Body washes, and the very day I was going to make the purchase, the store was closed. His recipe is nice because it shows you not just how to make the washes he was selling, but also provides you with enough information to come up with your own colors of washes.
Check out Les' YouTube Channel for excellent videos and tutorials. His current project is a space marine chapter project where he does a video tutorial for each chapter. Right now he plans on doing 70 chapters, and is already off to a great start.
Finally, related to Les' and the YouTube gang of 40k'ers is the Ventrilo channel provided by Catattafish. The vent channel is provided for people who play 40k, Fantasy, and other war games. A great place to sit and talk while painting and modeling. Basically, if you enjoy painting with company, but want to paint in the comfort of your own home, this is the place to do it.
The server address is "toronto.maxfrag.net" and the port is "3826". You can get Ventrilo for free from the Ventrilo website. It's not just a place to chat about nothing. We talk about the game itself, the rules, painting tips, suggestions, and general camaraderie. If you enjoy talking about 40k, now you can do it with real live people!
