Back to basics – Hacking old lead like in the old days.

Posted on July 3rd, 2017 under , , , , , , , , . Posted by

If you’ve ever read the little text at the top of his page, you might have guessed I’m a bit of a Jes Goodwin fan like many. Now the thing is, I started my journey into the hobby by buying chaos champions and warriors of his in 91 and although I did paint the first 2 as they were (with thick coats of enamels), I quickly tried to do my own conversions, inspired by the magnificent exemples in the books and magazines.

Those essential basics… – Making modelling sand

Posted on June 29th, 2017 under , . Posted by

Don’t know about you but there are ingredients in my hobby I rarely think about but which are actually essential to it.
I usually buy a huge pot of PVA glue every 4 years or so, 10s of drill bits every year, modelling knife blades too. Basing sand is one of those, but I only think about it every 5 years or so.

Shadow wars tokens

Posted on May 24th, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

OK, quick one for today. I’ve recently played a mordheim campaign and i’m about to play a Shadow Wars one and an Inquisimunda one. There’s one thing I’ve learnt so far : I don’t like placing my models flat on the table.
Why is that ? Paint chips, bent parts, you name them, that’s the sort of stuff I don’t tolerate anymore given how much time I spend on my models.
Is there a solution for this ? Yes there is. Tokens are one of them.
