Hi all! A couple of weeks ago I posted my first army list. It was a Combined Arms Detachment, with which I chose 3 artefacts, 1 on my Chaos Lord and 2 on Aspiring Champions. It looked cool, had some positive remarks, and felt good! Yesterday I updated Lone Wolf Army Builder which no entails the Traitor Legion supplement! Yay! So, I went about filling in said 1K army list inthere, only to find out

Today I started with putting together some palm trees, desert terrain, based on a Youtube video by Striking Scorpion 82, which can go nicely with my yet-to-be-received Desert Mat by Gamemat.eu. I saw this video a few times now, and seemed really feasible for me, being pretty much a noob at painting. I didn't have sand and grass/flock yet, nor stones and sand. Materials However, that's all in the

Yesterday I went to my FLGS in Utrecht, to pick up some ordered plasma and melta guns, to use with my models (there's always too few on the sprues with the kits...), and a Imperial Agents Codex, to make sure I have official documentation with the Assassins I plan to field. Oh, and some of the paints that are used by Michiel to make up my Night Lords. I want to be able to improve my own skills as

Although I haven't painted anything myself (yet?), I do have an interest. I watch tutorials, I watch showcases, etc, etc. A couple of weeks ago I ran into the video by Tabletop Minions that's visbible above this post. It evolves about using your paint for a longer period of time without it drying out (as quick). What is shown is how to make a so-called "wet palette", which keeps the paint humid

I came across this video a couple of months ago, just thought of it again, and decided to share it with you :) The movie is made by Winters SEO, of whom I watch bat reps and reviews as well. It's fun too watch, although after all this time I still haven't gotten used to the fading out and in of the microphone when cutting between scenes. It's not done in every movie, but for some reason it just

Yesterday I met up with one of my commission painters for the first time. Brought him my models, talked Night Lords for a bit (he used to be an Ork player, LOADS AND LOADS of models, but only painting now), and talked about the colorscheme I had picked for my army. I found this picture here and am rather fond of the metallic sheen, which I didn't expect to be honest. Also the blue being so dark

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

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
