Progress Update From Lloyd!

98 Comments

We catch up with Lloyd who has been painting away on the Waiqar forces for RuneWars.

He is going with plenty of bone, some metallics, a nice touch of blue and then a winter theme to tie it all together.

What do you think of the idea of a White Walker look?

More Inspirational Painting!

57 Comments

We take a closer look at some more of the work that The Army Painter guys have done on their models as they show off the different styles you can achieve.

There's no reason that your force has to just be the colours from the boxed game. You can go wild.

Progress Update From Sam

78 Comments

We stop in with Sam next and find out how he's been doing painting up the Daqan forces from RuneWars. He has chosen to do an epic paint scheme which reminds me of some of the painting you can do to characters in For Honor.

With that in mind, make sure to check out his Youtube Channel as Sam does our Total War: Warhammer videos!

While some of us have been painting up wonderous armies Lance has been working away on...a horse.

A single, magnificent beast with flowing fetlocks and wonderous dabbled skin. Oh and the rider is pretty cool too.

It's time to fuel up slightly now as we get stuck into some more gamer fuel.

This time we have hot dog and chips with some very nice onion. Sounds like the right kind of thing to keep us going into the rest of the afternoon.

Progress Update With Martin

79 Comments

Martin is another of the folks here who has gone with the Daqan force on the tabletop. He has gone with the more standard scheme that you'll see in the artwork and throughout the rulebook.

Back To The Grindstone

38 Comments

We power through some more projects with some of our Hobby Weekender attendees and get stuck into more painting. Everyone is hard at work.

This has been, despite the flurry of work to get armies finished, a great chance to chat and get stuck into painting and hobby chat (and other chatter) with folks.

Powering Through The Paint...

43 Comments

It's a mess of boxes, paints, brushes and more across the entire of the room here but everywhere something is getting painted and coming to life on the tabletop.

The Army Painter method has created some great looking armies so far.

We find out what Tim has been tinkering with and indeed how he has been adapting some of his models.

We're now catching up with Doug to see how his day has been going as he tinkers away on more of his project.

The light blue is a great choice and really serves to create a fascinating looking set of soldiers which will pop on the tabletop.

Time For Another Army Painter Spot Prize

We have another set of goodies to give away before we have some food...

...let's see who the lucky lad or lass is!

Dinner Time!

43 Comments

We're on the curry tonight to get us through some more painting.

It's decidedly hearty and fills the belly as you get ready for more hard work. Lloyd seems to really like it too!

Dinner Time!

Progress Update With Nuala

63 Comments

We stop in with Nuala and find out what she's been painting away on. It seems the theme of this table is horses, but there appears to be another big beast coming to life too.

When you're painting armies do you go for the big beasties first or do you work on the basic line troopers?

Lance's Sad Horse

43 Comments

Ok, so Lance put a lot of thought into his first horse...but his second horse maybe didn't get as much love and attention.

Sadly the rider gets an old wooden shield, his sword is rusty, and the horse might be a bit lame too. Poor Horse.

In the spirit of experimentation we take to the tabletop once again and show off what Stu has been doing as he explores just what happens when you do some interesting things with washes.

Take a look at see what you think of them right now and see if you would try this on your Undead.

Matte Coating Your Miniatures

We look at the process, a tricky one at that, where you are able to Matte Coat your miniatures using the spray from Army Painter.

Make sure the conditions are right for this as it could make a big difference in the outcome of your miniatures.

Both factions models look amazing, what great sculpts. Really clean lines lots of detail, just beautiful. With the skeleton faction are the humans necromancers or ghouls or what? In any case they look great.

Looking like it is going to be another great day there. I am amazed at how much they are getting painted. I think I literally painted 3 boots 4 legs and 2 arms on my current project last night. (Not all on the same mini of course)
