On a Roll

Well another update, yes, so soon after the last one....

Well I'm not sure how the other painters are getting on atm. Shane has already completed his 350pts for this 2 month block well ahead of the paint schedule. Me I'm not actually that far behind. My Razorwing Fighter is almost completed, final high lighted is needed an I also need to figure out what I'm going to do with the base. The Talos has a base colour scheme completed (dead flesh, silver body armour) but Im still unsure if I like it, hence there being no photo's of it yet.

As you can hopefully see from the pic's I've started bringing out the detail on the Razorwing. I'm still trying to decide on what colour the gem/ wraith stones should be. originally I was going to do them in green but they were lost in the green of the bomber. I'm thinking maybe red would stand out too much but then it doesn't leave me much left to choose from.

Whilst I was painting this I also decided on trying to get my Necron models done, so out they came and Air brushing/ painting commenced. Here are the results so far.

Crappy pictures so apologies, one day I will get a decent camera... maybe.
With the Doom Scythe and the Wraiths I now have all the models I need to finish off my Necron Force which should be over 2000pts, giving me plenty of models to choose from.

I'm also looking for anyone who might be interested in trying out Dystopian Legion from Spartan games. http://www.spartangames.co.uk/games/dystopian-legions.

The Rules are free to download http://www.spartangames.co.uk/resources/downloads
You can find the quick play and also faction downloads at the link above. If anyone is interested let me know as I really fancy having a game.

Anyways thanks for reading. I'm hoping to get as much done on my Dark Eldar as I can in the next 2 months because after that my Baby girl will be almost ready to finally say hi and I think my spare/ hobbying time will be pretty much non-existent  from then on.

WIP Razorwing Fighter

Hi everyone,

Just a quick update on my progress so far. I haven't really done much apart from assemble the Razorwing and also a Talos model. I'm still pretty busy at work/ real life getting ready for our baby girl who's due in 10 weeks time.

I broke out the airbrush again last night. Now I've been wanting to do a flames pattern on the Razorwing but my attempts are still to noobish to get it right so I've had to change my plans. Its a shame as I really, but I need a lot more practice to get it right and then a lot more practice in scaling down the flames/ paintwork to get it to model size so it looks good.

So onto the photo's

There's about 2 hours of work so far, most of it is drying time, building up successive layers of the green till you get the final high light and then using a wash to tone it all back down. However the wash has messed up the paint job in certain area's so I'm going to have to go back over them with the airbrush but overall I'm pretty pleased with the results. 
Very similar to painting my Necron models, but its a technique that seems to works for me. Anyway hope you enjoy he pic's.

Thanks for reading

G.W. terms?

So it seems that from June G.W. will be stopping all online retailers from selling their products. So the likes of Wayland games etc wont be able to sell them to us ( the public ) at a discounted price. Now in truth I can see both sides of the argument but I'm interested in what you guys think. This is going to hit our wallets with us not being able to order in bulk with a nice discount, but its (maybe) going to help out the bricks and mortar shops (Indepenant stockists) who look after the community more than anyone else.
Not sure if we have anything like that around here, maybe Hulls Angels is something close in the general idea, of course this will help the G.W shops as well, as its removing the discount buying and forcing the players/ buyers of their products to buy at G.W shops or from their online ordering ( Nottingham ).
I'm interested what you guys think?
