    That's just not possible. No human hand can do something like that.

    Rought and ready Aleph force, ready to put on the table. Had to stop myself tidying things up. My paint queue is rdiculous, so this is will do.

    Black Library, anyone a fan?

    Was it Mark Scaithe who wrote the first Scars HH book? Either way. He quickly made it to my fourth favourite HH author after Abnett, ADB and Swallow when I read his stuff.

    Black Library, anyone a fan?

    Weirdly enough I just picked up Vengeful Spirit, which was the next in HH novel in line I haven't read, and after four hours asked Audible for a refund. Maybe this is just a bad example, or maybe my tastes have shifted, but it was insufferably boring.

    Looks awesome. Yeah, the Plastcraft stuff is very "I want scenery and can't be arsed making/painting it myself', which is entirely fine. If I didn't have a load of unpaintined MDF and plastic buildings laying around I'd get it myself. It's worth the extra if you're time poor.

    This is dip. You paint your mini in base colours, dip (hence the name) into this, et viola, instant shading. It's basically magic in a can. Not the best results if you're nayway competent at painting, but it's fast.

    That's what Gandalf said in Moria.

    Def an improvement. Also, I got to do some painting! Also also, this is a lot of LOTR minis. I'm gonna need some dip.

    Thirdededed. More depth in the first. Also remember, you're looking at it in isolation, not as the whole of its parts.

    Ha, that's awesome. I love the bearded lady. Is that a KS which is happening soon, Joek? Also, first night at a new gaming club last night. Due to my new job this one is on the tram ruote home, which is doubly handy cause it's also in a brewery. Played against a guy I know at Infinity, lost (the new Aleph are powerful as hell.... plus I did my usual 'not reading the mission properly' thing), but had a blast and several pints along the way. Set up was great. Lots of tables, lots of room. The guys there were all cool and friendly. Apart from Infinity there was Xwing, Song of Ice and Fire, Warhammer 9th age, Lord of the Rings and some card game being played. Plus the guys ho run it also run the Knights of Dice mini scenerycomany, so every table was decked out to the nines. It's free to go, but there's also a membership for anyone who wants to support the club (and also get discounts at the bar and a few gaming stores around the city). I'm definately going back so I'll be getting that. Anyway, I took no photos but if anyone puts some up on the FB page I'll share them.

    So this is pretty cool. That Batman Bane crew I decided to sell? I put it up on ebay as 'well painted' and it sold for $200. I actually made a profit on those things.
