    Necromunda Ash Wastes bases

    I would mix up a big batch of "ash" - bicarb of soda with small rocks made from tiny bits of plaster, mixed with some appropriate dry pigments - grey, naturally, but also some lightbrown tones. After painting the model I'd then basecoat the surface of the base in grey and paint the base rim in...

    Achieving coloured highlights using Contrast Paint?

    I think you may be overestimating the difficulty of layering (the method used to highlight 99% of GW miniatures including the example you showed), going by your comment about advanced techniques like wet blending and glazing. It would certainly be worth a try, watch a few Duncan Rhodes videos on...

    FINISH YOUR STUFF CHALLENGE 2021

    Thanks man. Yeah, I haven't calculated it yet but I did go somewhat overboard on the weapons. On the plus side, they're all removable/swappable for cheaper guns or no guns. Will see how it goes as I have my first Gaslands game in over a year on Wednesday, and we're escalating to 80 cans which...

    FINISH YOUR STUFF CHALLENGE 2021

    The Gaslands truck ended up monopolising my modelling time for the first half of the month (the build ended up far more involved than I thought). I made a decent stab at a last minute dash, getting the warlocks mostly painted, but forgot that I'm going away this weekend so my plans to at least...

    FINISH YOUR STUFF CHALLENGE 2021

    Thanks for the votes folks! As of the 18th this month I’d only finished one model. Once again FYSC to the rescue as the impending deadline has given me a kick up the arse so I’m hopeful I’ll have a reasonably full complement by the end of next week.

    My vow for May: Two more stormtroopers and Inquisitor Hybris Khronos for Kill Team. 2 recently acquired warlocks and a farseer to build out the ever expanding seer council of doom (aka one of every farseer and warlock model ever made by GW, released or otherwise). Though these will be from...

    McToasts Necromunda Display Case

    Came here expecting a post about how you made a custom display case for your necromunda models! Are those base rims hand painted without any masking or guides? They look great. As does the chipping on the armour.

    Kitbashing a Speeder

    So cool. I’ve got an ash wastes crew on my list of things to do so bookmarked for when I get to it.

    FINISH YOUR STUFF CHALLENGE 2021

    Such an enjoyable month of painting, with a good variety of factions, scales, and character models vs batch painted infantry. I'm most pleased to finish the Autarch (because I converted it 8 years ago) and the Gaslands monster truck (I love how it looks, and enjoy using it a lot in game)...

    Really shiny silver plate armour?

    I watched this video on YouTube yesterday and now couldn’t agree more that citadel lags the pack in true metallic paints. The metallics used here are stunning! If you don’t have any luck with the Vallejo paint, on the strength of this video I’d look at AK interactives true metal paints.

    FINISH YOUR STUFF CHALLENGE 2021

    Those models, while beautiful, just have *that* much detail. I remember when I did them as death guard I ended up cutting away or melting some of it, and ignoring the rest of it during painting, or I too would still be working on them now...

    Best ruleset for small games of 40k?

    I use kill team for this (model count 15-25) and find it excellent. With just a few small house rules we have run a very enjoyable Inq28 style narrative campaign by selecting missions that make sense in the context of the last mission and the overall campaign story. And between the additional...

    FINISH YOUR STUFF CHALLENGE 2021

    In the spirit of the challenge, March's efforts were the result of a trawl through my unfinished models and projects. I'm doing the same this month and this is what I've dredged up for completion (core goals at top, "stretch goals" bottom) A monster truck for Gaslands, 2 more random Dire...

    I painted more models in the last month than in the previous year - including some that have sat in my unfinished models box since as early as 2014. I put this down to 3 things: This challenge and seeing all the rest of you making great models A 2 month long clear out, reorganisation and clean...

    It’s been a slower start than hoped but it seems to have worked to stoke my appetite for finishing more stuff.
