  1. Baltimore Golden Demon 2010 coverage

    Good morning, folks!
    We got back from Baltimore yesterday, about 12 am. This year GD was much more impressive, representative and intense that the one before it. Competition was pretty fierce albeight uneven in several categories. As usually, 40K single, Fantasy single and (this year) LOTR single were incredibly intense with multiple very strong entries by several top painters. More unusually, 40K vehicle, 40K squad, 40K Large, Large and Open were well represented and high quality as well. ...
  2. Ork landship - final update.

    This is the final update on Scott's creation. Whoever attends the Games day will have a chance to meet this (and Scott) face to face. In the final push over the last two weeks Scott removed all FW elements from the boat to avoid pottential rule conflicts added crew (well, just the kaptin and his pet for now). THe Ship awaits its name! Any suggestions?

  3. And so it begins...

    I first heard about WH40K sometime between my primary and high school (back then in Poland we used to have a 3-step education system: primary school, high school, college). In 1992 I was on a summer language course in Sheffield, UK, and there, in a GW store, I bought my first Space Marines tactical squad (2nd ed.) and a dedicated paint set (spending a big part of my money on it). Right about this time first wargaming stores started opening up back home. I was instantly immersed in the WH40K universe, ...
  4. Stripping Whispers

    Well, I finally got around to stripping the two already painting Whispers in preparation for my colour changes/updates and general (hopefully) upgrading of my models.
    As the models are metal, I use a cheap acetone-based nail varnish remover. My models had several layers of paint on them, along with a gloss varnish and then matt. I left them in the acetone for 24 hours and then carefully peeled the paint off the models. It comes off fairly easily, but I wouldn't recommend scrubbing as it just ...
  5. Whispers Skin - Testers

    Have been starting my painting with the beautiful Whispers, finally finishing a unit will be a big deal for me . However, their previous skin-tone is very monochrome (Fortress Grey, Badab Black Wash, Codex Grey, Skull White) and I was hoping to put some colour into it. Observer suggested purples and blues and this struck a chord, while my boyfriend suggested I use flesh tones as the interim so the blue would have a greater contrast.
    So far, I have only done washes over Fortress Grey: ...

  7. Ork Land Ship

    Over the last year I have being seeing this orkish creation being build almost every Saturday.. Finally, Scott Brandt, who single-handedly designed and build this juggernaut incarnate, allowed me to take some pictures. The land ship is propelled by twin-baneblade chassis and contain parts from several stompas. Masts and sails are reinforced by metal rods and could be removed for transportation. Boarding "axe" and forward megacannon are not attached yet. There will be about a dozen upper-deck cannons ...

  9. Skaven Warlock

    One of the very first miniatures I ever bought, must have been back in 2002. This is the 2nd layer of paint already on this one. I like the pinkish rat flesh and the contrasting scroll on the filthy purple robes. Painted diretly on the metal without primer. Heresy, I know.
