6th June 2011: No More GW
Yet more price increases from GW and the switch from metal to shitty resin means I am no longer going to be buying any more GW stuff. The Dark Eldar and Necron armies I wanted will never happen, and I won't get more Tau and Battle Sisters when they get their new Codexes. This means this page will essentially become a painting blog, and as I don't paint that often it probably will not be updated that often. All I've done this last month is start work on some of the Eldar Aspect Warriors.
I'm just hoping Mantic Games newly announced sci-fi game will produce some cool (and cheap) models.
6th May 2011: Slow Month
Finished updating the Undead BB team. I had to wait for decent weather to do a load more spraying, but then it got really warm and the grey spray on my Guard went on a bit rough. But sod it. Just wanna get the damn things done. Have sprayed all the new Marines and Guard tanks. Then I mixed a new blue for the Marines, as my old one (Marine Dark Blue) no longer exists. It's not bang on, but is much closer than the Vallejo one I tried. Also started the Slaanesh Epic stuff, and have gone mad pre-Heresy purple rather than the post-Heresy black. But soon after got bored so haven't done any more on those in a while.
All in all a slow month. Need to do more dammit!
The start of more painting projects
3rd April 2011: Me Dad's Special Brew
Been a bit more painting of Blood Bowl models. I've polished up the old Chaos team and added another 4 Beastmen to them, and now I'm on to updating the Undead team. After that there will just be the Star Players that will need updating with different highlights and the new GW washes. It's very odd painting over old stuff.
Finally got the dudes stripped by dipping them in some special brew me Dad keeps in his shed. The paint just couldn't deal with it and fell off.
40K has fell onto the back burner a bit at the moment as I've worked on Blood Bowl and Epic models (and I'm also working like a beaver on completely upgrading this 'ere site), but I did have a quick look at a simple Manticore mod. I've glued some little "pins" on the missile rack to stop the damn missiles from falling off all the time.
Blood Bowl, stripping & conversions
15th March 2011: Orcs Is Ready
Right. Orc team done. On with the Epic stuff. Odd how I am so much more motivated to paint Epic and Blood Bowl even though 40K is the game we play the most. Having some trouble getting the old painted models paintless, but have read that Dettol is good so will grab some and dunk the little bastards.
From now on I'm planning to do a WIP update once a month, near the beginning of the month, which will detail the stuff I've done the month before. Cool whip.
