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

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

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

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

So, probably going nicely with the desert mat I'm expecting, would be these palm trees as seen made by "SS82" over on youtube? What do you think? Too much work, too brittle, not enough goodlooking?
