  1. I was clearly too late to this conversation but I am glad you did it. I was a bit intimidated by magnetising stuff for my Adeptus Titanicus stuff, but I am so glad that I did. Key things I learned were: -Teeny tiny magnets, the same width as my drill bits do not need glue. They fit so snug. -Be careful and consistent with your magnet polarity, so you can do swaps. -Do it! Plastic is a lot easier to work than you might think. I have Crowlocke in the pile of shame. When I get to him I will follow you example.
  2. I bought something like this and ended up not using it like I thought I would. I just use the light really. What I found was the the focal range is such that you have to keep your head and your hands within quite closely defined areas. I found that an inconvenience. I ended up buying some magnifying Google's a bit like these: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Magnifier-Handsfree-Magnifying-Detachable-Electronic/dp/B0794PNBLT/ref=asc_df_B0794PNBLT/?tag=googshopuk-21&linkCode=df0&hvadid=309810605437&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=1684202709714873373&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqm
  3. I think the Mortal Realms paint guides are designed so that they only use paints that you should already have got with a subscription. So they are different for a good reason: To support those getting into it that way. Don't feel compelled to follow them if you have other paints too.
  4. Finished the others in an afternoon. Enjoyed these a lot. The contrast paints sped me through to the bits I enjoy the most: The finishing highlights, detailing and basing.
  5. Contrast paints. Marvelous! Took an hour or so if you discount drying time: To be fair, miniature like this probably suit them well. Not too much worrying about going outside the lines.
  6. Those old terminators are such lovely minis. I look forward to seeing them done. Yesterday I had a lot of calls. So I also painted this Glaivewraith Stalker while I was listening:
  7. Pleased with how this guy turned out. Painting a lot of Chainrasps as practice has helped I am sure.
  8. I was pleased with how her head dress came out.
  9. The Briar Queen. I have since darkened up her eye sockets.
  10. I have found lockdown kinda productive. My job involves a lot of conference calls, most of them require me to listen and maybe be actively involved, talking or interrupting, only about 10% of the time. It is really easy to get bored when the conversation is less relevant to me directly and start reading email or the news or whatever. This inevitably leads to the "So Rob, what do you think about that?" "Erm, would you mind repeating the question" Embarrassment. I have found painting miniatures while on these calls stops this. It sounds weird but painting is a visual distraction that r
  11. I thought it was supposed to be the new starter set, the 40K equivalent of Age of Sigmar - Soul Wars. So I was expecting it to be continuously available. Or is it actually a limited edition?
  12. I mixed up a couple of pots using empties that I had kept, because I knew I would be reusing this. A large pot (one that the shade paints come in) was 1:1 mixed with a whole 12m pot of Nihilakh Oxide and a whole 12m pot of Lahmian Medium. A small 12m pot was mixed with 1:1 Drakenhof Nightshade and Lahmian Medium. I Undercoat with Corax White Spray All over sloppy coat of the Nihilakh mix, a messy but simple task. Then I shade the top half of the ghosty bits, up the the cowls, and the insides with the dark mix. This needs to be done carefully because even at
  13. Having been reasonably pleased with the way the Chainrasps turned out, I set my hand to a hero in the Knight of Shrouds: Not totally sold on the red which is a borderline colour clash with the blues but pleased with the execution. 30 more Chainrasps from Mortal Realms The entire contents of the Soul Wars box set: A Knight of Shrouds on Ethereal Steed Lord Executioner Guardian of Souls Spirit Torment 4 Grimghast Reapers 5 Glaivewraith Stalkers 20 more Chainrasps 4 Myrmourn Banshees 4 more Glaivewraith Stalkers Lie
