Re: The Scroll of Truth!

I actually used to follow this as a rule, back when I started. Then I started converting uits out of bits belonging to completely different kits, so it started to be better to keep all kinds of bits at once. And then I backed the Raging Heroes kickstarter... ...actually, now that I think of it, my s...

Re: [PLOG] The Lost Colony

As there seemed to be interest in her, here are close ups of the BSB that was seen on the altar. I have actually had her for a while, she was part of the freebie pack Raging Heroes sent early on and I painted her some time later. https://s19.postimg.org/50vwcjg7n/BSB1.png I fell in love with Raging ...

He is playing when he finds some time. What he doesn't do is write reports, because... no time. Neither of us has as much time for the hobby as we would like, but we're doing our best.

Re: [PLOG] The Lost Colony

Breathtaking, as usual! I love the flames from a distance, but I am sure that the models should be superb from close up. Great handpaint on the banner, too. Did you sculpted the phoenix yourself or is it a model bought on shelves? Wondering, how come the ladie's shirt does not ignite? Thanks a lot,...

Re: 2018 PAINTING CHALLENGE

The wall of fire is made using glue gun - I put some baking paper around a bottle of the correct size and "drew" the flames using the glue. Then I coloured them with glass paints to preserve transparency of the glue (because i'm crazy about transparency, you may have noticed ) The same aff...

Lord Drakon: I'm sorry for not replying earlier. I must have missed the reply, or something as lame as that. I would like to have an army shot, but I don't trust my photography skills enough.

Re: 2018 PAINTING CHALLENGE

Wow, the knights look awesome. I think my favourite part is how well everything fits together - the theme and colour scheme, the heraldry, the basing... Celenia with her hood also really helps. The banner is great. I've tried using paper and super glue in the past, but this seems like a much better ...

This means that the only thing missing is building and painting the base and then placing the three elves and the Avatar. I'm no...

Re: 2018 PAINTING CHALLENGE

I'm not really getting anywhere (except really nervous :lol:). The central avatar, or whatever the big thing in the middle of the alter is. The three attendants are mostly basecoated and the scenery not even started.
With a new job (and keeping the old one) I can't seem to find enough time for painting.

Thank you for all the feedback, those are all great points. It seems the tentacle demon is a clear favourite of the forum.

Re: [PLOG] Reavers of the Shattered Coast

I really love your colour scheme. The combnation of blue and purple looks great, and the rest ties it nicely together. I think my favourite model is the sorceress, so dynamic.
I hope to see more from you. :-)

Thanks a lot to both of you. :-) Errdrigar, that might really be the one. Thanks for the detailed instructions and the photos, they are really helpful.

Need help finding a small bolt thrower/conversion

I have recently managed to get my hands on a Dark Eldar Raider and have been trying to convert it into a flying corsair ship. I got rid of the gun at the front, but I would probably like to install a bolt thrower or something in its stead (especially as I would like to use it as a Seacutter/Skysloop...

That's really great-looking terrain.
