MIG Productions just keeps pumping them out. Even though they apparently no longer have any connection with Mig Jimenez other than the name, that doesn’t seem to have slowed them down any. Actually a quick look at their website
shows a bit of a lean into the fantasy/future war-type genre that has gained so much recent popularity. All I can declare is: keep it coming guys!
what you get
MIG Productions sent three new pigments for Armorama to review:
P042 Ochre Rust
P043 Kaky (sp) Russian Faded
P044 Burnt Steel Blue
Each comes in the now familiar 20ml pigment pot.
Each pot has enough pigment to last a good long time (has anyone ever actually completely emptied one of these?). I won’t bore you with a long drawn-out explanation (your welcome!) of what pigments are or how to use them, just a few quick observations:
The Khaki Russian Faded seems very coarse, with small bits of white and yellow that help to give something of an inconsistent color. This may be a benefit, as it gives a non-uniform look to the application. After all, fabrics often fade at different rates, and soldiers are issued replacement uniforms at different times.
The Burnt Steel Blue is ground to a very, very fine powder, which probably accounts for the slightly higher price.
The Ochre Rust is fairly standard as far as pigments go, but another rust shade is always welcome.
To the right you can see the results of some different applications of the pigments in question. The back end of the F-15 (heresy; an airplane!!) shows one burner can with the burnt steel applied to the right side only. This pigment would have lots of applications for the wingy set among us.
The T-60 (a 25 year old scratchbuild) shows a couple of before & after shots with the pigment applied to the front glacis plate area. The Ochre Rust was applied to a piece of tubing that will be used for an exhaust pipe later on. I don’t know that I would use this pigment alone; it may work best in combination with other shades.
Three new pigments to add to the growing stable, all with their own unique uses. They should be well-received by modelers regardless of their particular modeling interests.
