painted stuff is due. I of course realize that. Sometimes however I have something
to share that might actually be useful for hobbists throughout the world. Certainly
not my opinion. But my experiences with some rather new niche products might be
the blog design. Basically more gray and orange and "It's got hexagons, so
you know it's from the future". That quote is from the Infinity O-12 Podcast, it shall honor the fact that I don't do
any historical or fantasy war games (besides "Full Metal Fantasy"), and
so it's kinda in theme. Oh and don’t miss the Space Hulk PC-game in two days
from now on Steam. I’m stoked for that.
content is commin up, not just right now.
Last week I
dipped my toe in the deep water of metal kits and their fits. This is a tricky
issue and companies seem to have distinct policies regarding pining. I mean
let’s face it: Two flat surfaces are not enough to connect two bits with super
like that. Aren't we all feelin’ a little Mediterranean thanks to the weather?
I haven't been painting during the last couple of days. It is not that I hadn't
wanted to, it's just that I could not. No matter how much you water delude your
paints, no matter how much retarder you drop in the mix, the paint will dry in
on your damn wet-pallet before you picked up the brush. I'm exaggerating to
make point here, but it is pretty hot around where I live. Therefore I’m
building rather than painting at the moment.
Cover is a
big issue in most table top games. And the approaches to it by the game system
are quite different, varying from rather abstract to very detailed. Also toy
soldier formations vary greatly throughout the systems. 40k mostly needs obstacles
for 5 to 10 models or more. Infinity however needs individual cover, scattered
over the field. That's why I got this kit.
In the last
post you saw my test Tau, who I put together in 2001. Now over a decade later
they're getting paint. Yayyyyy! That's how fast I work. But I think I have
pinned down a super-fast few color paint scheme, which is not super pretty but
a good portion over table top standard. I think I have to get I bucket of
citadel casandora yellow wash. A very good finish/dye/wash for yellows.
wanted to give you a quick review of an hdf terrain kit a got recently: Bandua
Wargames's Infinity licensed Q-Building Set. My fist hdf/mdf kit and I have to
say: I LOVE the smell of laser roasted wood fibers (way better than new car
is dedicated entirely to bases. As you might already have guessed by now, I
like to put a lot of emphasis on bases. However I do not like resin scenic
bases that much for two reasons. The first being that resin is quite likely to
get its paint chipped away.
the almost last catch up post on rather recent events. It's about the Night
Lords project, which I have pushed way back on the to do shelf... it is on ice/hold basically. For three reasons:
1. Forgeworld will come up with night lord bits and rules before this year is
out. 2. I'll get some Dark Vengeance CSM out of a trade soon. 3. GW might even
give them some love in form of a codex supplement. Who knows? I can wait; I
mean it's not that I have nothing else to do. Anyways here’s what I’ve done so far.
post is yet another of my wrap ups on past achievements. I threw together some
zombies. I might use them one day as chaos cultists/plaque zombies, but in
reality I don't even care. I just had a blast assmblin' these chums. I should
probably clean, green them and then donate them. Well I'm not decided yet.
to: find the Emperor quote in the title. This is yet another catch up post to
show forth, what I've been up to. This time it's on my little church project. I
started the framework when the building kits came out 2006. But I never quite
figured out how to do the roof tiles without killing my soul in the cut out
process or paying a fortune on single scale model ones. Well and then I found
this cheap thin pvc casted sheet (5€ or so).
The holy house is now primed and waiting for my next terrain painting
run. I usually paint multiple terrain pieces at once to have at least uniform
bases. As always questions on how, why and even what in the comments below.
this is an
army box, literally. 2000 Points on sprue, the start and erstwhile entirety of
my Iyanden army. In contrast to the Tau project, which I'm handling quick and
dirty, this will be handled quick and clean, if not to say just right.
here's the Tau-project post I talk about in the editorial. It's all pretty self-explanatory. I am currently filling some minor gaps on the tanks and suits also test painting on some fire warriors. But for the most part I'm air brush priming them with Vallejo gray surface primer. Which takes some time for A: air brush priming is more accurate, but a little slower. B: The water separator of my compressor stops working when it runs hot, after about 90 minutes straight. And C: I'm only doing that while the weather is good, since I'm working in the garage.
post anything since October... 2012... 6th. edition 40K. coincident? I think
not. GW switched to rapid fire with their releases since Dark Vengeance. My
shiny syndrome switched me to rapid fire hobby project pick up.
