  1. So I've painted on and off for many years now, always using second hand brushes. Not toooo long ago I bought some since I started to do more detail work and now I'm noticing that the brushes aren't quite that good any more. I'm sure I don't take care of them that well, but for you painters out there, how long does a brush normally last you?
  2. Hey Guys- I read a great article today on BoW and wanted to link it. http://www.beastsofwar.com/painting-and-hobby/threecolours-minimum/ It's basically about the three colour minimum scheme that once determined if you could attend a GW tournament. Over the years, I've had a lot of conversations about using 3rd party miniatures in tournaments, and how a good selection of the gaming audience supports that, but what about painting? I mean, if someone brings a fully painted 3rd party models with proper representation be better than a grey (or pewter) legion? Just looking to stir up some conversation. I'd suggest reading the article first.
  3. Hey guys, I was thinking of doing the following ongoing challenge to get people to post their ongoing projects. Ideas thinking of doing this on a monthly basis - starting with August. The idea is at the start of the month - people pledge what they plan on painting that month and post their progress pics as they go. For example - Taylor - Ork Army - August Pledge It can be as little or as much as you'd like to pledge. I'm thinking that monthly, if you complete hour pledge, I will personally paint something of yours and include it in my next month's pledge. If you don't want me to paint something of yours - that's fine - but we can redraw names or you can even give it to someone else as a gift. Anyway - I was wondering who might be down for that idea. I've included a poll to see what you think. If we have five people interested in this, I'll start August's thread in a couple of weeks.

    T Breathe fire into your army I do very fast and high quality work. Prices vary depending on the size and complexity. Assembly and basing is extra and depends on the model, stripping previously painted models is more. The following prices are based on square and round bases, and are only for the painting. Oblong or oddly shaped bases are quoted on a per model basis. 25mm - $20-$25 CAD 32mm - $25-$32 CAD 40mm - $32-$40 CAD 55mm - $44-$55 CAD You can contact me on any of the above linked social media.
  5. hey guys finally decided to post some of my current work. They are a commission of custodes marines. This is stage 1. They are primed Ultramarine blue, then ink washed drakenhof nightshade, then painted with watered down crystal blue.I have just started to paint with Army painter paints and i must say i do like the quality.I m a slow painter, the watered down stage takes about 40 minutes per guy.In a week or so ill have stage 2 to post.
  6. Well I decided I will start up my own Hobby Lobby Post. Any comments and criticism welcome. I strive for a table top standard, hopefully I can reach that. I am still very new to the painting your models instead of paying someone to paint for you. Up first: I recently made a big decision, while it was not an easy one, I think it worked out best for both parties. I traded my whole painted Tomb King army!!! I am still deciding if I regret it or not, a bunch of contributing factors led me to this decision. But this post is not about that, I traded them for an absolute ginormous unpainted daemon army (except for 60 painted plague bearers). This army is all 4 Gods, and it is good for 40k and AoS (except the new tzeentch AoS stuff). With the new league started I wanted to make sure I have a 2000 point painted army for the final round. Since my Iron Jawz are currently sitting only at 1000 points painted (painted by me pics will be later) I decided to go with a nurgle tallyband. Since I already have 60 plaguebeares painted this would be the easiest way to get to 2000 points. So far I have painted 6 plague toads (Beast of Nurgle), 6 Plague Drones, and The classic Greater Unclean One. See below for pics. This was all done within the last week. Up next is Epidemius, and 2 Nurgle Heralds. Please let me know what you think of the models posted, also keep on a look out for pics of my Iron Jawz, and the future Daemons.
  7. Painting a Primarch

    Hey folks! I didn't do a full step-by-step this time, but I've completed painting Roboute Gulliman, and here's the photos I've taken along the way! Well, can't find out how to post an imgur album right now (if anyone can help, let me know!), so here's the link to the album, and the uploaded image. http://imgur.com/a/YTVGP
  8. I thought I'd just move this topic here, as I'm pretty proud of it. Comments and critiques are always welcome.
