Thor’s Workbench: Obliterator (WIP) & Cultists

Thor’s Workbench: Obliterator (WIP) & Cultists

I mentioned in my previous workbench post about an Obliterator I had mostly complete. I took a few shots of him this morning to show. I just put on basing material before taking this shot so if you see snow on the model that’s why; I haven’t cleaned it up… Read More The post Thor’s Workbench: Obliterator (WIP) & Cultists appeared first on Creative Twilight .

Basing – Tips and Tricks 1 – Crushed Shell

Basing – Tips and Tricks 1 – Crushed Shell

Recently I was asked to throw up some basing tutorials, so here we go, such things I have learned about basing as you may find useful. I’ll be doing a few of these, I imagine. 1. The Porridge I’ve already posted on this, you can read about it here . However, there’s one element of the mix I didn’t discuss, and that’s crushed shell. It’s fantastic stuff for mimicking shale, mixing in to a basing mix as I’m do and for using larger pieces on bigger bases. You can also but it on-line I imagine, but it’s easy to make. Get thee to a beach, get a shell or two, and when you get them home, wielding a hammer, pulverise it. Make sure to wear goggles, and do it somewhere where flying shards of razor sharp shell aren’t likely to take out the cat/child/postman.

Dettol – the hobbyists paint stripper

Dettol – the hobbyists paint stripper

Let me introduce what I think is a damn fine paint stripper for wargamers, it’s called dettol and it’s an all purpose disinfectant. Now I’ve heard a lot about simple green but I’m damned if I can find any of it, I’ve also heard that fairy power spray is good for stripping models. To be honest, I couldn’t tell you how good either of them are, and I’m probably not going to be able to tell you about them in the future because I’m sticking with Dettol from here on in. It’s really simply to use, just drop your models (metal or plastic – don’t ask me about finecast, I don’t buy that stuff!) into a suitable container like a drinks beaker and then pour in enough Dettol to cover them. Give them a swirl with an old tooth brush. I left those metal snipers I got from eBay in for about two hours and after a quick scrub with an old toothbrush and then rinse it in water. 99% of the thickly applied paint came off in a matter of a minute’s scrubbing and it’s ready to be primed again. A quick word of warning, I’m not going to say that Dettol doesn’t damage plastic because it does. I put some SDE Kobold warriors in to strip after my wife had tried painting them and then I completely forgot about them. A week later, I pulled them out to find that the paint had stripped and the hard plastic model was perfectly fine but the model base which was made from softer plastic had melted as you can see in the pic

Thor’s Workbench: Chaos Terminator (WIP)

This model is 99% done, I just have to go… Read More The post Thor’s Workbench: Chaos Terminator (WIP) appeared first on Creative Twilight .

Fimir – Half Dead Update 13

Fimir – Half Dead Update 13

And with a squelch of stinking black mud, the half dead return. May was a complete wash out for me on the hobby front. A perfect storm of deadlines conspired to keep me at work almost literally every waking moment. I would look forward to special treats such as ‘going to the toilet’ and ‘standing up’ . Such was my lot. Not that ye care, you bunch of heartless fiends. Very well then, onto the meat of the post. As soon as it became even remotely possible to get some hobby in, I was back at the painting table.

Super Dungeon Explore – A game for little Miss

Super Dungeon Explore – A game for little Miss

There’s a new game in the house – Super Dungeon Explore! I’ll be honest, I didn’t know much about this game when we ordered it off ebay. I wasn’t actually looking for a new game to play, I just wanted the models. With Corben getting into Heroquest and 40k, our little miss Willow was feeling a little bit left out on the painting front. So I got Super Dungeon Explore for the models, although after playing the game, we’re well and truly hooked.

6/7/13: I’m Back! Smells Like Egypt!

6/7/13: I’m Back! Smells Like Egypt!

Howdy folks! Man, has it already been a month since my last post? It has? Well shucks…. Anyways, your favorite miniatures artist is back, and boy did he have some fun over in Egypt! Lets break down the trip, shall we? Over the course of two weeks, we made it to Cairo, Alexandria, Hurghada (A resort town on the Red Sea), and Luxor. I’ve been inside the Pyramid of Khafre (the second pyramid at Giza), in the tomb of King Tut Ankh Amun, seen his mummy, seen the mummies of Ramses II, Hatshepsut, Seti I, and a gold-leafed mummified child, rode a camel, haggled with vendors, been greeted by two dozen screaming Egyptian children after answering their hellos in Arabic, and met some pretty incredible people, both American and Egyptian. Lets let my pictures tell the story, shall we? No one ever tells you how close the Pyramids of Giza are to the city of Cairo. The plateau literally juts out of the edge of the city! Interesting graffiti; I’m interested in it as an artist and, hey, it might make some interesting tags for terrain pieces! Qaitbay Citadel in Alexandria, constructed on the site of the old Lighthouse of Alexandria. It was built by Sultan Qaitbay to defend against the spread of the Ottoman Turks.
