  1. Who says the government never does anything good...

    Heh just got another letter in the mail from the City of Edmonton (my summer employers). Apparently they did a vacation pay correction to the sum of $600 on Tuesday. They keep paying me long after I quit, how nice of them! Between the government's generosity and the $90 I got back selling Rhinos out of my Battle Company box, I've had the entire thing paid for (and then some). Not a bad break at all...That also brings the grand total of income tax for the year officially above $3000, and since I'm ...
  2. Blood Ravens Color Recipes

    I've been asked what colors I used on my Captain, so I guess this is the best place to post Nice and public so everyone can see it. Here's the newest shot, with a bit more work done. Mostly on the chest and shield.The armor was done with P3 Sanguine Base, shaded with a wash or two of my Scorched Brown/Black mixture. I then hilighted with Scab Red, Red Gore, then Red Gore with a bit of Fiery Orange in it. All hilights were feathered to keep it smooth without having to do a ton of mixing.The ...
  3. Details, Details, Details. Stormboy Nob WIP

    I started the body details last night. Leather straps and the jump pack controls were all I got done, almost. I didn't want just a drybrush metal over black to define the box and controls, I wanted something that would stick out a bit. I did a "black" box look so had to highlight it some with greys to bring out the details - I think it worked. I also wanted reds and yellows for the smaller parts, industrial warning colors. I think I struck the right balance in colors here. Choosing yellow ...

    Started another project, another spawn that I was supposed to paint sometime ago, So far just a base. 
  5. Da KLAAWWWW!

    ... taken from "Liar, Liar", The Movie.Here's photo I promised showing the finished powerklaw. Pretty eh? I'll finish the bottom blade after it's affixed to the model. The only thing that bothers me in the photos is the shine, but I know it'll be knocked out when I Dullcoat it.Till next time boyz and girlz!
  6. Reading Material

    Just a quick note before I'm off to bed: if at all possible try to avoid reading Trainspotting on a deadline... I had to read half of it in one evening to allow me to get on with my research paper and it was not a fun experience. Decent enough book I suppose, but reading it is something of am uphill battle. Phonetic Scottish slang isn't the easiest thing in the world to read quickly.Anyway it's 2:18am and I have class at 10:00 so I'm gonna bugger off for a few days. Hopefully when I emerge from ...
  7. Another Master of the Fleet Update

    Probably the last update for a couple days at least, I'm really getting behind on schoolwork :PRemind me to stop trying to blend colors with Foundation Paints, it's a miserable experience. Orkhide Shade is the nicest green I've seen in ages but it's really painstaking trying to blend with it. The cloaks on these captains will be the death of me.
  8. Master of the Fleet Update

    Hey everybody, I had a second sitting with the Captain today, fairly brief but I think I settled my issues with the color scheme.Blood Ravens characters from the Dawn of War game had a lot of bronze/gold on them and I figured out how I want to do my HQ models now. From the elbow and knees down will be bronze, leaving the core of the model and the shoulder pads pretty much standard. Maybe I'll add a little bit of bronze to the backpacks as well, instead of having them just red and black.The little ...
  9. Stormboy Nob WIP - No Amazons Here...

    I'm sure you folks are getting as bored of the Stormboy Nob as you are of the Amazons. At least the Amazons are naked, right? :-)

    I put in an hour last night and finished some work on the big shoota and the powerklaw. I worked on some different techniques for brass and I'm not quite happy with the effect yet. Close, but not as happy as I am with the steel areas. I'm waiting to finish the small details like the rings in his arm and the chain on the gun until it's glued to the figure. ...
