"My suggestion is clocks. Tons of clocks, the wind up ones for their gears, the electrical battery ones for their parts, the wiring, battery cases, and little lights. My dear, half the fun of the project is taking things apart first."

"Honestly I use a spray-black to base coat the project and then use Citadel Paints for my projects.  It's expensive, but the result is phenomenal.  For brass colours, I use warpstone bronze or Gehenna's Gold for brass tones. "
