  4. After a few months of no activity got some colour on my Generic Medieval Dudes! My 9yo kiddo also decided they wanted to do some painting, so I found a bunch of night gobbos and some zombie wolves for them, they did pretty good then we had a game of one page rules with them! It's nice to paint some dudes after so long not really putting brush to model, though I'm wary of how I'll have to put in some effort and maybe look up some guides to paint horses and their cloth tabbard-thingos nicely! If anyone has any suggestions on painting flat shields like the infantry have, that'd help too! I'm guessing I just need to try to freehand some basic heraldry colours on them, diagonal colour changes or quarters and such

  5. Forgot to add this adjunct to the storage depot, a warehouse. Gone for space as well as style is the theme for both - plenty of room to hide thugs and underlings. It was originally a separate building but since painted the same, now it's the warehouse part. Just need to add the front access. In two minds over adding another landing for access or whether the trucks and vans back straight to the warehouse. Cheers.

  6. The other head was worse; it had a pony tail 😞 What if I add a deodorant bottle in the other hand? It would offset the 40k rules lawyer measuring stick he's carrying.

  10. Took a break from the miniatures to paint some more scenery to go with the general Ariadna theme. Also played round with some new rust paints I got (Vallejo rust 'effects'). First time I've done rust. I'd like to use it on the treads of the tracktor Muls for the Ariadna (i know these guys are supposed to be bad game-wise, but I love the models and have wanted to paint them for a long time)

  16. Started off giving the whole figure a coat of a sort of salmon pink colour. I then went around all the recessed areas with a dark red colour, then started building up some volume on the flat panels, glazing them up through beige brown and up to light flesh. (I forgot to take photos of those stages sadly) Then I airbrushed the whole figure with Vallejo game colour "Golden yellow". As we all know, yellow is an absolute pig of a colour to paint as its so translucent. I find that having some depth/volume to the surface before starting on the yellow really helps.

  17. Finally got off my lazy ass and painted something today. Happened to be the "villages" for the refight. Went blank on where I placed the card buildings I was intending to use so use these 28mm instead. Same region. Individual building represents one of the three villages designated for this refight - Utitsa, Gorki, and Semenovskaya. I know I went on about how the last-named village was partially destroyed by the Russians to aid their defence. But plans and intentions change, as they do. Figures are for size comparison. So, 20mm figures, 28mm buildings. Our Lady of Smolensk church in Borodino. Scale is slightly smaller than anticipated but it fits the scene well enough. Guys may have to stoop to enter the doors though. The bridges were touched up. First and easiest to scratchbuild. Darkened the earth and greened around the board. Used a mix of mid-blue, red and dark green to obtain the kind of earth colouring I was looking for. It worked out well as it covered the earlier brown basecoat applied. Again, a bit undersized are the fleches. And finally the Grand Redoubt, or as it's now called La Petite Battery (the little battery). Self explanatory. Cheers.

  23. ASOIF is taking off big time here in Canberra, and that is great. The other night I got to play against a mate that is fairly new to the game, loves dragons and was super-keen to try the much maligned 'Mother of Dragons' list. OK then... Pic1 - Righto, lets get rolling πŸ™‚ Pic2 - Oooh, that's THREE dragons all right. Pic3 - ...WTaF am I supposed to do about THREE dragons?!? Regardless, an excellent fun game. I'd happily face my mate's MoD again (also, I give zero Fs about tournaments), but I'd deffo want to skew my list a bit more to do it.

  24. This just came up in my FB feed. Interested in trying them out. INTRODUCING INFINITE COLOUR! Infinite Colour is our brand new WATER BASED paint range, designed specifically for miniature and figure painters and can also be used on scale models. Infinite Colour features a strong adhesion on many different mediums (including plastics, resins, metals, timbers etc), has a strong vibrant pigment, is designed specifically for hand brushing applications, can be thinned with water (for creating glazes, or thinning for airbrushing) and cleaned up with water. The first wave of colours will consist of 48 (33 Primary, 5 Fluro, and 10 Skin Tones) and more will release in 2022. Colour Guides will be ready later in the week. Infinite Colour will finally launch to the market on December 4th 2021 through our website and stockists across Australia. International territories coming in 2022. #smspaints #thescalemodellerssupply #scalemodellerssupply #scalemodel #infinitecolour #miniaturepainting #miniaturepaint #warhammer40k #tabletopgames #australianmade #innovatenotimitate

  25. The backdrop was my in-progress display piece. NewHokk waterfront district. I still have to apply the heavy gloss coat to the base and the background. But the weather has been waaaay too humid for the glasscoat (too much humidity foams it up) resin I'm applying to the mdf base. Let alone the gloss varnish that's going on the background.

  26. Well, I'd probably be fine on the hair side of things, not sure I'd pass muster on the fitness... of course, there are other things that I actually need to get done at home, so travelling anywhere is out.

  27. Me neither. My travelling days are long over. Soldiers, the generations over, love their drinks, shooting the breeze, and making whoopy. Simple needs for certain conditions but the job often got dirty so one needed the simple things to fill the empty spaces between fighting and dying. The delicate balancing act, I suppose. Have a dram for me, mate.

  28. Yep. 3D printing is the way to go. As long as it becomes accessible to general hobbying market. Sort of like watching people move to hand held transistors and walkmans to get their news and music fixes. πŸ˜‰

  33. A couple of years back I bought a copy of Shadows Over Camelot, a cooperative board game that sees Arthur and the knights of the round table riding off on quests and fending off the Saxons and Picts. The game is excellent, if a bit complicated to start. Unfortunately the miniatures that represent the knights are less than excellent. My motivation to paint them well was very low. And so, they were not painted very well. I recently acquired some replacements. Here is the original Sir Cei, Kay or Cai depending on your preference. I think the sculptor had run out of noses. I’m particularly fond of the Hawk of May series by Gillian Bradshaw and like her interpretation of Cei being the greatest of Arthur’s foot knights, being essentially unbeatable when not riding a horse. In the absence of The Boss, I will be painting up Sir Cei, infantry commander.

  36. Another update, again rather a poor showing - but kids are out of home schooling and back to school since last week so suddenly my evenings are more freed up again. I'll finish these last two months on a high I hope! I did get a few figures and a wartruck finished: I did finish some other oldhammer related painting for a challenge elsewhere - so here are some random mentor legion marines

  37. Spot on Kn'T πŸ‘, and thanks. WHFB (which is figure based) is still messing with my brain, when I really should take Kings of War (KoW) at it's word when it says that it is unit based. ie. It's the base size and the preferred model count (PMC) that really matters, not necessarily a specific number of figures that must be put on the table (like in WHFB for example). In fact, re-reading the Ratkin Army list, the answer was actually right there in front of my nose all along .... 'the front rank should be represented by shields'. So, a full model count for a Troop of Clawshots would be 5 shields (in the front rank), and 5 clawshot rats behind (in the rear rank) - resulting in: Troop (10). Even better, I have the flexibility to only base up 4 clawshot rats with 4 shields (i.e the preferred model count for a troop) if I'm short on figs or want to create a diorama. And if I wanted to, because KoW is 'figures agnostic', I can even re-base up my old Jezzail teams comprising shooter and support rat, instead of using shields and shooters. Case closed πŸ˜ƒ

  38. guess i can't really enter this, as i don't check the forums enough to have seen the theme before today, and haven't taken my beginning of month photo proof, which is a shame, as my latest project fit the bill since it was an unfinished project from 20+ years ago, and i just want to show it off... Heroquest! And to be completely upfront, this was a project i resurrected in August, beginning with stripping the efforts of 14-15 year old me, and finally finished in October. as to the tale - my cousin contacted me in mid-April to say that in a recent unpack, he found my HQ set that i'd loaned him some time ago, probably 2000-2002ish - and would i like it back. of course i would - lets check how they looked back then: Come late August - i'd finished whatever my previous project was, and having found out more info on the upcoming Hasbro re-Launch of HQ, i decided to celebrate with stripping the models and starting over: 20210821_125053_1.mp4 and over the course of the next few weeks, this was what i did - until about 2 weeks ago, i completed all i had (HQ, KK, ROTWK - minus a single mummy) and decided to setup a photoshoot of the core set: was a lot of fun - the models are surprisingly good, when compared to some current "gateway board games". the problem now has been finding the time to actually play the damn thing. πŸ˜› EDIT: oh, and yes, i've got the re-launch on order, so if the rumours are true, i might be painting another set around Christmas time. πŸ˜„

  40. Been a while between drinks but getting back into it, my drawer is chockablock with mortal realms so I need to start getting some painted. Made a tiny dent in it with this Ballista and crew, but still a frightening 3 big sprues, 10 medium sprues and 6 small sprues in need of assembly and painting. 2 months worth of deliveries: and re organised my hobby desk to give me a bit of motivation:

  43. Come on guys don't make me bump my own thread πŸ˜› So despite not planning on playing until 9e releases, and only knowing one other person so far in my country town who plays... I'm already bit by the terrain bug again. Even found my old hirst art molds! Dead easy to bang out a bunch of blocks using them, I've got a cobblestone castle style mold and a sci-fi bunker block one. Made some nice buildings back in the day, which I assume all ended up forgotten about and "donated" to the FLGS!
