I have multiple reasons which I could roll out for being slow posting in recent days, but I won’t, suffice to say I have been busy and blogging got dropped as a consequence. Being busy aside, I have managed a bit of work on various miniatures including my Unclean One, the main reason for this post. Before I post pictures, here is a bit of a ramble. This is a beautiful resin model, full of lovely detailing, and in my eyes, it is an adequate (and much more cost effective) substitute for the FW model. When I saw the FW model I thought wow, that’s beautiful (from a modelling perspective) but totally out of my price for a model that I would never use in games terms.
I was painting up some CSM last week, and decided while I was at it, to attack a project I had been meaning to do for a while; My CSM Lord already has three magnetized daemon weapons ( undivided , Khorne , and Nurgle ). It was time for change..
Having decided to move on to some Chaos Knights, I decided to peruse the collection painted so far to try to remember how I was painting them (I never have been smart enough to write the steps down). I was quite disappointed when I cast my eye over my Khorne Warriors and the solitary Knight that I had started last nearly a year ago. The painting, by the standards I am currently painting to was rubbish. Lots of flat and uninviting colours, and the bases looked quite shabby.
Now I finally have a normal Dreadnought in addition to my Venerable Dreadnought . The prime difference between them is that this one’s got options. The venerable was done before I had really figured out ways to make them interchangeable. Ok, The pieces for this particular build came from a few different places. Most of it was from the standard SM Dreadnought Box.
Do you really need a pricey primer to paint your models. Answer is no not really. I know of people who spends $5 to 6 dollars to get one can of spray Primer. Just because they think it works better, or maybe it dries faster, and so on. To tell you the truth you don’t […]
In this video, I attempt my second-ever freehand design on a banner for my Tzeentch Exalted Hero of Chaos Battle Standard Bearer for Warhammer Fantasy. I’ll cover my steps for that freehand design, along with the paints I used and two sets of quick tips at the end.
In a previous post by Brother Captain Angelus I read about using Microsol for decals. Microsol is a clear liquid that softens decals. You “paint” it onto the decal after it has dried. It will usually get rid of the clear edge of the decal that you can see after it has dried. See the […]
So a question I see come up here quite a bit is how to successfully take paint off of a painted model in order to redo it. For me, this was quite an issue, as there are a variety of methods you can find online, and many of them a) use illegal substances, and/or b) […]
This is a guide on using “Dip” or “Dipping” as a technique to quickly paint miniatures. “Dipping” is a technique that is very easy, saves a bunch of time, and looks really great on a variety of figures. The technique has been out there for a long time, most famously here. This thread is mainly […]
Hello again everyone. I have been playing around with the new Citadel Washes and I must say that I love them! I recently tried painting true metallics with the washes and was quite pleased with the results. The washes are very smooth and low in pigment, so they are perfect for the job!
