Badab War: Assault Terminator Update

Yesterday I started painting my Terminator assault squad. It was a mixed bag painting wise, on the one hand the bronze turned out ok like the Tactical squads, but on the other I struggled with the reds (again) and the verdigris. For some reason the verdigris came out to strong on the Terminator helmets, so I am limiting the amount applied completely.

Quick Tips#4: Seriously easy bases

Normally I can spend as many days working on a figure base but sometimes; like in the case of army painting, this is just not practical. So here is the way in which I do batch basing. You will need the following tools and items:

Vallejo Grey Pumice
Cork/chopped plastic bits
Old paint brush

Badab War: Holy smokes an Update!

It's amazing what one week of playing Space Marine can do to a guy. I had pretty much resolved myself to do no more miniatures until Forge World release the discussed MK 8 Errant armour Space Marine, but lo and behold I found myself very inspired by that accursed computer game. With almost all my infantry choices out of the question, it was really a choice between a whole bunch of metal boxes (boring) or loads of drop pods (equally boring). So in the end I wrote a new list which hits closer to the Minotaurs lore and provides me something fun to work with and the result? A whole bunch of Terminators!

Kingdom Death: King's Man and Great Game Hunter Unboxing Pt 2

The Great Game Hunter is the second figure of Kingdom Death's double August release. It is part of the Pinup line and as a result has a general/unlimited release. As with previous Pinups, the character is a heavily sexualised fantasy female with the typical fantasy armour archetype i.e. less armour to show off more assets.
