I'm all about that base, that base, no model... Sorry, bad joke. Nevermind, my singing-voice is pretty shit anyway :P So, I saw this video over on Youtube, featured on top of this post, which showed how to create "cracked earth" results. Pretty neat, pretty excited, and then I saw that bonus in the end (starting at 08.39 minutes)... Mind Blown! What an amazing effect! Having receive my Daemons

Hi folks! Here's a look at the new shinies I got the other day. They're done by Rob, over at 30K plus 40K equals infinity, over the span of a few months. He had some delays, weather, moving houses, lack of stock in his FLGS, but came through like a champ! I'm thrilled with the results, and he's every bit the skilled painter I made him out to be! Overview A group-photo. Not too thrilled about it

DISCLAIMER This post is not about religion. For those that are not familiar with Warhammer 40K, its characters, lore, fluff/context and actions are based upon - or strongly related to - ancient history, in this specific case the Bible. It is not meant as sarcasm or mockery, simply an - somewhat twisted, admittedly - addendum to the already existing universe of Games Workshops Warhammer 40K. I'm

Hi all! Along with the Spawn we saw earlier, I received a custom kitbash statue of Konrad Curze in the mail! Like the Spawn, it's created by "D Power" in New Zealand, and depicts the final moment of a Primarch being assassinated on command of Big E (being the Emperor of Mankind) himself. Background The story behind the moment is philosophical. After Chaos made the Emperors lab go boom, Konrad

So... I got a package delivered today, which turned out to be the custom build Chaos Spawn and Konrad Curze - I keep mixing up the initials - statue by "D", all the way from New Zealand!!! While initially it was a bummer as I hadn't anticipated the Customs Clearance fee (of course very legitimate), but seeing what I was paying for, I didn't mind all too much... Drum-roll in the back of my head,

Not having done anything myself lately related to 40K, as I'm severly anticipating painted models to be return by 30K Plus 40K equals Infinity, who is painting a champion, a Forgefiend, Raptor Lord, and a Daemon Lord so far, starting off shortly with the Land Raider and Imperial Knight scenery. I'm thrilled about the results, the incorporeal really coming into its own, and Rob is doing a bang-up

Hi all, Just a short post on some painting I've done. Wound Markers I got these wound markers off of eBay (I came across them when browsing for some dice), thought they would be a wonderful addition to the game instead of having dice next to the models. They're really, really small though, I'm not sure they'll "work" with tanks for instance, or even last very long as they seem to be prone to get

Hi lads/lasses! Didn't get much done last week, but completely related did have some nice messages from people that are doing commission work for me. Commissions D Power is doing a statue for me, as well as some skinning pits for sideshows/objective markes, and on top of he had extra time on his hands, meaning he has started on a couple of Chaos Spawn!! So thrilled!! 30K Plus 40K has made a

Hi all, I probably should cut this up in multiple smaller posts and skew the numbers, but hey... It's been a cra-zy week... My mother-in-law was hospitalized for severe headaches which wouldn't recede. Turned out to be some sort of a - undetermined as of yet - viral infection, got sent home with painkillers to keep pain-level bareable. So, in between going back and forth to the hospital, the

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
