work in progress
Back in May, Firelock Games sent me a shipment of miniatures to check out for this website. Among those items The post Galleon WIP – Blood & Plunder appeared first on Must Contain Minis [MCM].
Back in July 1996 in the English speaking market the Codex Chaos was released, and with it the poster-boy of Chaos, Abaddon the Despoiler. A bit later, in february 1997 in Germany. The release was followed by the Chaos Terminators in blisters and a boxed set of 5 in August 1996, followed by the special […]
Having tarted up a few Tyranids a while back for Kill Team, I have decided to tart up the rest of my old 1990’s Tyranid mini-horde and get them into 40K 8th Edition. All I am doing is rebasing the models, touching up a bit of the very basic paint job and then inking the hell out of them. I have too many other projects on the go and really do not want to do a major repainting undertaking on the whole army. The rest of the Genestealers, Termagants and Hormagaunts did not take long to freshen up and they amke up the bulk of the horde. Fortunately there are only about six models that need completely painting and they will get a similar scheme to the rest so they sort of fit in… It does make me wonder how many games I played back then with unpainted models, something that I refuse to do these days. I only have one old Zoanthrope model so will be running it as a Neurothrope instead. As for this old Hive Tyrant, it is a bit small by todays standards and the model does not quite match the model profile
I am currently working on a couple of terrain pieces, that will follow my Warcry review. Among them is the Sigmarite Dais and the Azyrite Townscape, that will go great with the terrain from the Warcry starter kit. I started with the Sigmarite Dais, a round temple base, that I primed black and gave a […]
I have a new shipping container design that I am really pleased with. It is a reinforced container for shipping hazardous type materials. The first version did not have the three braces around the middle, but it was a bit tricky to build. This one is much easier to construct and may well be available soon at Product For Wargamers.
In the last article I talked about how my painterly aspirations first developed in such a way that I wanted to reach a pro level. However, this was rather the beginning of my journey as a hobbyist and my preference has shifted a lot in the meantime. One thought was pivotal at that point: How […]
So I am back since the middle of the week. Been busy, taking a lot of pictures, as you can see below. Build a couple of kits, among them three Knight kits for Adeptus Titanicus. And the July 2019 issue of White Dwarf arrived, along with a new promo card for Warhammer 40.000 Munchkin. Remember […]
As some the industrial bits allow for slighly higher ground levels, I have some new simple ramps. To allow round Processing Towers to link diagonally, I have also made some short walkways.
Did anyone else had the time to watch the third season of Stranger Things? In episode two you can see the physics teacher painting some miniatures. I assume that's Legolas? I am a grass widower for a couple of days, so I used the time to do some of things, that aren't that welcome when […]
We've covered the history of the Citadel Paints in part 1, then had the chance to see them in action in part 2 / the review and now I may welcome you to the third part, with a sum up and collection of multiple feedbacks and reviews that I found online in the past few […]
So after the overview of the history of Citadel Colours, let's get painting and see how these work. To get to know these new paints better, I prepared a couple of miniatures to be painted, among them the regular snap-fit Space Marine. Why did I choose these models? First of all, the Space Marine is […]
Games Workshop introduced with their Contrast Colours a new part of their already quite broad painting range. But where does it come from and what does it do? Among the early days of Games Workshop, when they shifted from being a distributor and publisher towards the miniature tabletop company we know today, Citadel Miniatures played […]
As covered in the article on CONflict two weeks ago, I'll be taking a summer break on events after this weekends TableTopia. But you'll find the event coverage on the blog on sunday, maybe late saturday. If you're following me on instagram or facebook, you might already know, that I have some promo material for […]
One of the many dangers of watching YouTube is that you think something someone else has done is a good idea and you decide to give it a go. I was looking for alternative ways of getting the paint off models and there were several references to ultrasonic cleaners. These things are cheaper than you would think at £20 on eBay. Methylated spirits seems to be the stuff of choice to remove paint and so far the results have been pretty good. So I bought one… The first model zapped was a really old beakie Imperial Space Marine from the multi part box set from way back in 1988 I think… It took a bit of extra scubbing with a tooth brush in a bowl of warm water, but it has come out rather well. The next batch going in are some old Space Wolf Terminators and a number of 1980’s lead Space Marines with various weapons and wargear.
As the third lineplayer paintwise doesn't offer anything new compared to the other two, I'll talk a bit about my Wanderleague system today, but more about that in a moment. I've tried a little something on Gorhuk the Smelly. On the one hand, I'm just starting to love the color scheme of keeping the clothes […]
