  1. These look really nice. How hard did you find blocking in the colors and leaving the black showing? That is the one thing that'd muck me up when painting 15 or 6 as I'm very dependent on washes in that scale.
  2. A little bit late and eleventh hour, but I got my Librarian finished:
  3. My (belated) entry is my Librarian. I forgot to take a picture before I undercoated it. Whoops.
  4. So I have been progressing, but have also been a lazy sod and not been taking photos of my progress. After saving that building I managed my fifth piece of terrain, bringing me up to five total. I put up my first battle report on my completed table, which you can read here. But here's also a teaser of what my 30x44 looks like prior to bloodshed:
  5. Ok - I think I remember debating you into submission after the game. So the rule Kref was looking at is the truncated rule, which does indeed state: "Cannot shoot at an enemy Character with 9 or less wounds while it is within 3" of a friendly unit (Monster, Vehicle or unit of 3+ models) unless it is the closest target." However: The lengthened rules state the following: "Models cannot target a unit that contains any Character models with a Wounds characteristic of 9 or less with a ranged weapon while that unit is within 3" of any other friendly Vehicle or Monster unit, or while i
  6. Space Marines will be easier to start with, Tau will be more rewarding to learn, to a point. 9th edition has lots of minor layers of things to adjust to and learn. 9th edition is starting to bloat out somewhat, but at least there's a lot of showing in addition to the telling. Space Marines, despite being the common denominator army are the most broad and diverse faction. They have lots of options, a huge model range and these days you pick between firstborn (oldmarines) or Primaris. Or mix them, I guess? But all the diversity comes at a price in that there's lots of little moving parts to r
  7. That sounds interesting. If the Daemon Prince has wings, I'm not sure how the Terminators would keep pace with the Daemon Prince. My experience is limited to normal boring Chaos, though - across both 8th and 9th editions I have managed one game against Nurgle in all its forms. I tell you what I do like for dealing with characters, though - Eliminators. Depending on what chapter you run, they'll pressure his Daemon Prince nicely.
  8. Update time! For those that do not wish to read through six posts for the #goodstuff, I made a summary on my blog. It's largely the same. Anywho, I finished another piece of terrain. I nearly mucked this one up with a bad coat of varnish, but after having another whine to the resident terrain kings, I tried another coat of spray varnish, it rose from the dead. Unfortunately I decided to repaint the terrain base and ruined it just a teensy tiny bit with a brush that was too wet and not allowing the hauspaint enough time to dry, but it still fits the rest of the terr
  9. On my way, whacked the terrain - including some unpainted bits (boo! hiss!) on the table for a game of combat patrol with my new deep cut studio mat to match the bases so it doesn't look so weird. Still a way to go and I think this particular layout was a bit shit - and I want to organise some bases for the shipping containers to put into smaller areas as flexible blockers. I tested it, they're taller than most infantry and make perfect pocket hiding spots. I also think I need a bit more scatter terrain to add character - but I'll sort that next pay cycle.
  10. I finished another piece, bringing the total up to 3: These guys are all varnished, too - and ready to be fought over.
  11. Mistints, you say? I'll have to look into that.
  12. Alrighty! More Updates! Although with a bit of doubling back. Turns out I was very unhappy with using expensive and hard to source paint, coupled with the agony of trying to airbrush a huge base with what feels like a mosquito's... *ahem* So I whined and moaned to my friends who have a background of sorts in this stuff and more years of hobby experience than me. Their solution? Try using spak-filla and housepaint. So I got some product recommendations, made a lunchtime sojurn to bunnings, watched a youtube tutorial, and had a go at rebasing my first building. Step one - flash the spak
  13. *rubs hands with glee* Alrighty, updates, updates time! After much umm'ing and ahh'ing I decided to bite the bullet and start somewhere - I decided to do the building base seperately prior to painting the building. So, where to start? Well, how about a mixture of PVA, Water and Sand to generate some texture on the base. Then a blast of army painter uniform grey once dry: Then an airbrush coat of a darker grey than the grey I rattle-canned onto the base, followed by a drybrush of a lighter grey, then a lighter grey again and voila! One terrain base. In a sort of "you got this,
