  1. *waves hand* Another one here who has completely ruined models with trying to highlight them! I'm finding contrast paints amazing for remedying this when it happens - when I've used Contrast for the base colour, and then messed up the highlight, using the contrast paint to go back over the rubbish highlighted bits I find I've magically gotten the highlight I was struggling to achieve. For me it helped to think of contrast as sort of shades - they'll tint the colour underneath providing it's lighter. It's why I wasn't happy with Contrast to start, trying them over Grey S
  2. Sadly the internet failed this time so I had to resort to a crappy `zombify` website
  3. My brain: Stop it! Look, you've got enough miniatures to paint. You've barely made a dent in Cursed City, let alone all the other miniatures you've got from other board games! You don't need to start buying Nurgle miniatures... even if they are insanely cool... and you've been secretly obsessed with Papa Nurgle since your teens... Wait, what the...? Okay, calm down. I've checked the bank statement and it was a steal at less than a tenner, so it's not so bad. I mean, it's not like you're doing something stupid like buying Warbands for a game you
  4. Well this is mighty interesting for anyone like me who's a slave to the Arkham Horror LCG - next campaign moves away from having staggered Mythos packs as separate releases and now comes as an all in one campaign (same number of scenarios as before apparently, slightly more cards if anything). They've split out the investigators into a separate purchase and seems like it might work out a little cheaper overall. This one's based on Mountains of Madness too, one of my fav Lovecraft stories! https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/news/2021/6/3/to-edge-of-the-earth/
  5. Loving that, brilliant definition on the muscles and you've made his face utterly terrifying (as it should be). Are you just using Ryza Rust with a wash for that rust effect? It looks great and I'm especially loving it on the chainmail links and mace.
  6. Nice. It is a fantastic model and I love the griminess you've given it there. The rusting to the face band and spikes is great and I hadn't even noticed he had lower bone parts till looking at your pics. More Cursed City from me too - a 'not sure if finished / not sure if still WIP' Vargskyr. Apologies for the crap pic, the lighting is rubbish here today so just snapped it straight on the painting table. There was a lot to learn with this one. It's the biggest model I've ever painted and, now I come to think of it, I don't think I've ever really tried to pa
  7. Thanks and no worries, all feedback is really gratefully received. Good shout with the rims. They were just a straight dip in aquarium sand / gravel with PVA and I was so concerned with the tops that I didn't even consider cleaning around them too (I think I also forgot to thin the black paint which has made it thick and streaky - 13 year old me is still in there somewhere with the un-thinned paints!). Contrast paints - Skeleton Horde just doesn't seem to come out right for me, it's always dark, flat and really pale. I put all my paints in droppers and I wonder if I ma
  8. Thanks Make sense with the green (and why Lupercal Green was used in the offical pics and like @Davros sock drawer did with his). I think in my head it's always "Well you want a black colour so just use black paint" when there's clearly more to it than that to make sure everything pulls together. I think I might get some Lupercal and try it for the Watch Captain. These have been so much fun to paint I'm probably going to pick up the box set and do some more at some point, so will have plenty of skelly's to experiment on.
  9. *Deep breath*... okay, here we go, apologies in advance for janking up this thread. These are my first attempts at painting in close to 30 years. 13 year old me would have thought I was some kind of wizard producing something like this (wish I'd kept my efforts from back then but I remember superglue everywhere, non-thinned paints - they were not good). There's parts on these I like and parts that are bloody awful, but I've learnt quite a bit. Including don't think dry brushing is the best way forward and edge highlighting is not something to necessarily be
  10. Well now I'm definitely not posting any images of my crappy efforts, yours look bloody amazing.
  11. Ah! That might be where that confusion's come from. People saw mention of Ulfenkarn and assumed they were Cursed City related by default, as it was pre-launch. I've read those comments and just assumed that was the case.
  12. I though Kritza was one that had been shown off as part of CC but people remarked was missing from the final release? And Radikar's final form release is one hell of a way to spoil your own plot twist in an expansion that could be some way off. You're right though, it doesn't stop them at all but it would be a weird way of doing it. At least it would be if everything wasn't weird already with Covid delays as @RFT highlighted. I'll happily eat my hat* if it turns out we're getting more stuff, but right now I'm too busy pulling a big man-child pouty face in a right old s
