Re: Need advice

I would wash downward with dark blue or purple first then take you base color and mix it with some bleached bone-ish color to give you a lighter version of the base for highlights/drybrush. Finally, I concur with the green idea and would use a bright green for spot color here and there on little det...

Re: New 40K Army

Yeah those are both pretty solid armies as I see it though I am no pro. I'd pick the one you are most excited about painting and roll with it. If you are just in it to have a good time then do what you enjoy and let the chips fall where they may.

Re: Firestorm: Armada and Planetfall

I have the starter and would love to have a go at it but am typically not able to be out weeknights. I am often available to play either friday or saturday evenings. PM me if you like and I'll send you my contact information. Maybe we can hook something up. Rules look great and miniatures are very n...

Re: High Elf list for this weekend.

I think you have way too many points in characters and that you will never even with HE trickery have enough power dice to make 3 casters useful. I'd drop 1 hero mage and one hero noble and use the points to bulk something else out. Might do the same with one of the bolt throwers. Those swordmasters...

Re: No Thunderhawk Left Behind. Thunderhawk Gunship restorat

I do so enjoy these project posts. Looking forward to seeing the progress. How long do you soak in that stuff? I have always used simple green despite the smell but it often needs two passes.

Re: New Fantasy Army: DE or WE??

DE seems like the obvious choice if you already have some though I think WE are still pretty under represented in local meta so if it were me that would be a selling point. You also might be able to pick some up cheap since the book has been out long enough for bandwagon players to start dropping th...

Re: Questions about Airbrushes?

I'll second what was said about gravity feed being critical. I have an Iwata eclipse and it is exactly what I needed. It is just fine enough to do base coating and some semi-fine details with exhaust and camo and such but not too crazy. On the compressor, I encourage you to look at the amount of noi...

4 books, lol. Oh well the gaming community could stand to be a bit more fit anyway. Fit gamers live longer and buy more.

Re: Getting into Fantasy, picked up Ogre Codex, questions.

/Concur with Gobbla The list of models he suggested will probably get you close to 2k points depending on how you build things. I would spend some time playing at 2k or 2500 (tournament standard) before even thinking about how to make it a 3-4k list. That way you get a feel for what things do what a...
