The old world is not dead

Greetz one and all

Although the people of nothingham pulled a master stunt and brought a new world to our gaming midst, I don't think the old world is dead.  As a matter of fact it most likely has never been more alive in my head.

I am not one to judge on rules and game play as I seldon actually play.  But where I kept a large part of my collection unharmed from my fantastical mind, but now my sculpting tool and cutting knife can finally create all those strange ideas.  I no longer have to fear that gw will one day use all my old clansmen for there new version of warhammer.  The old world is dead long live the old world :)

This is not saying I'm not doing anything in the age of sigmar, I just find it liberating that all boundaries are gone while still leaving me with a wonderful collection of models, story's, rules and ideas :)

Age of sigmar

The local store asked me to paint up some stuff for there release party today.  Unfortunately there package didn't arrive on time so I ended up painting a battle board and 1 sigmarine instead of 18.

For the time spent on it the results are fine.  But for you "dippers" out there; don't dip gold.  The dip washes off all the shiny stuff and makes for a dull brown look.  So I ended up re touching the whole model, and still wasn't satisfied with the results.

Anyhow, here are some crappy cellphone pictures (had some real life work and deliver the goods on time)

Brother Giron

Greetz one and all,
This week's update brings an update to my arch angel force.  I once started an all terminators blood angel army to emty my bitz box, but got suckered in an upgrade when the new codex and models got released.
Brother Giron has a few personal markings including the black fist of "the wrenched furry", earned during the cleaning of the so named space hulk

Wip Week X

Greetings once again,

It has been some time, but I'll try to keep up with weekly updates. Let's hope I can keep it up :)

Well what have I been up to?  I've been following The independent characters for some time now and I've entered in there Hobby progress challenge.
If there ever was a gaming group/site/... I had to say I was a fan of these guy's would be it :)



Anyhow it got me to painting a new lot of blood angels, and up until now I got 2 5 man units done and 2 characters.  Not all that bad for a few weeks time.


I'm now planning on painting some assault veterans and an apothocary


Well that's it for now.  I'm planning on making more progress in the following week(s)
But for now I'll leave you with one more link for inspiration, it has been for me :)
There will be blood angels [Warseer]

Old Stuff Day 2014

old stuff day is march 2nd; and what do you know that's today.  I know I haven't been blogging for quite some time now, but maybe that can change (I'm not betting on it; but I am trying :) )  Fornow I am doing the best I can to keep involved with the comunity off-line and here and there online; and since I've got some back log on articles I can easily join in on old stuff day; so here we go.

The article I'm submitting for Old stuff day is my candle tutorial, I chose that article 'cus I keep going back to it myself and beceause I get a lot of questions about my candles every time I post a picture of one of my blood angels.  The candles are reacuring theme on almost every base in my ever growing army.

Apparentley due to new pollicy I get my White Dwarf a little later then the stores.  In my case that tends to make a subscribtion a little obsolete as the nearest retailer is almost literally next door.  But that and the fact that I had a working weekend did mean there was no update on the blog this weekend.  So let me make it up to you by doing another tutorial. In the meantime I get to remember how I do this stuff.  For the sake of pictures in this tutorial I didn't make the candles while on the base, but rather on the toothpick.

I’m not great at these thing, nor do I think I’m the great talent at painting or sculpting.  I do however bump on things I think are worth sharing with the rest of you.  One of these things are the candles I include on my Blood Angels.  As the picture shows; it’s all fairly straight forward.

First I use a tooth pick cut it to length.
Next up are the dripping lines.  I do those by just adding green stuff to the sides and making vertical carves with a needle like sculpting tool. Top of the candle is made by pushing a ballpoint tool on the top The drop is made by pushing at the end of the drop
Third part is the flame.  I do this by just rolling a little egg like form and carefully pushing it in place with the needle point (sometimes using a little glue)

I use greenstuff for these kind of things as it gives a better curing effect.  I like using brown stuff, but it gets a more straight finish; Green stuff tends to curve slightly when handled, and candles tend to do the same :o)

Hope it inspired some people.
If you’ve got pointers or experiences; let me know.
