Sidenote Use safety measures!!! Latex gloves and glasses (if you don't wear them yourselves, but even then...) are a must! Make sure you're in a ventilated room! The fumes can be pretty bad for you. Clean up after you're done. Your partner will like you for it :) Process Today I removed a couple of Chaos Terminators from their "methyl alcohol" bath (gedenatureerde alcohol in Dutch, 96% pure), in

Hi all! Just a small update, not related to tabletop: I got featured in a "Better Know A Blogger" series, done by St Andrews Wargaming! I got some fun questions through the mail, which I answered and are now up for grabs. The Blog itself is a very nice read. Although I'm not overly fond of the setup, I like the means they provide to non-techies, or just folks that don't want to spend

Small post on my work today: I built a Land Raider :) See you next time! Kidding of course, but pretty uneventful. Sidenotes With a Land Raider there might be a few shared parts (mostly weapons I guess). Before you start, decide for yourself what to magnetize, and search for the common "denominator" if you have mutliple attachments, and whether or not you want to use it. Read the manual and maybe

Sidenotes There are a few shared parts in this model. Before you start, decide for yourself what to magnetize, and search for the common "denominator" if you have mutliple attachments, and whether or not you want to use it. read the manual and watch the youtube-videos completely before you start. Know what to expect! (I didn't and you'll see me pay for it lateron) Use Superglue (Secondelijm in

Just now I got a message from a seller on Marktplaats, a Dutch version of eBay because we Dutch are weird like that, stating he accepts my offer on the following: 5 Raptors 9 Terminators 6 Chosen 1 Psyker in Terminator armor 1 Daemon Prince with wings, without a sword A box full of bits For the lovely price of 75 EUR (65 GBP/79 USD as I'm typing)!! Some of the termies and the chosen are from the

I'm still in the middle of setting up the site, and I saw others have this thing called a "blogroll". As mine didn't have that yet, I did a quick search and found some easy code to add. I decided to add it and create some linkback-love to other blogs. The reason for this is twofold: First, to honor their content. Second, to generate a wee bit higher rating, as their site gets linked more. :)

Yesterday I woke up very early, too early (5.3o AM), and the Mrs. was out for the count (didn't get up until 11 AM-ish), so I had time on my hands. By the end of the day I had removed the following off of the sprue, cleaned the excess/residual particles (what's the proper English term for that anyway!? I mean the little lumps of plastic still on the model-parts when you cut them from the sprue)

Today I've spent some time on fine-tuning my site, so others cannot hotlink to my images, slurping on my paid-for-bandwidth. Or using my images on their own behalf, of course... Anywho, I've indeed added my own images to the website, allowing me to enhance my posts with pictures! :-) I'm in the process of getting some web software installed, but it seems pretty tedious, so for now I'll stick to

Read More Added local images, blocked hotlinking, secure content

Sidenotes Use Superglue (Secondelijm in Dutch, I used the Gel variant, not Liquid), not Plastic Glues on the magnets. To make sure that magnets polarities are aligned properly I did this: Glue one magnet to the model, and let dry. Attach another magnet to the glued one. If it sticks, the polarity is right. Use a permanent marker (sharpie?) on the side that is visible to you. Let the ink dry. When

Read More Magnetized a Forgefiend

I have a couple of posts to come in my head. I've mostly broke down, reassembled and magnetized a Forgefiend, put together a Culexus Assassin, some cultists and am pondering on which material to use for magnetizing weapons on a Land Raider (ie. can I use pieces a lid of a vegetable jar for instance? Too many words, not enough time made to order them...
