Soup Herb!

Here's a tip for you from me!

a tin can makes a great water pot! the ridgy bits on the inside are great for cleaning your brush in the water! just brush em up and down on the side and voila! a slightly cleaner brush!

My trusty Minestrone soup tin (the finest of the soups!)

Naught but dread

Finally made a proper start on my Dreadnaught (see, this is why I never finish anything, always trying to do everything at the same damn time) figured I should as it is the first model I picked up when I decided to get back into the hobby :-)

Anyhoo I stripped the old terrible paid job off, primed it with Tamiya superfine grey primer (which is great btw) and applied the basecoat with my airbrush.

Came out pretty well methinks. Once that was out of the way I thought i'd try and give the previously basecoated command squad a wash using the new citadel washes. So i mixed up a 50/50 mix of black and blue wash and gave them all a liberal spraying!

As you can see from the comparison pic below it really darkened the base blue colour to quite a blacky blue compared with the unwashed dready.

I'm not quite sure if I like it or not, maybe a little less black in the mix would be better, hmm what do you all think?

Airbrush for teh winz0r!

SM command squad basecoated and dried in less than 10 mins. Excellent.

Still need to get my thinning ratio of water to paint right tho, but still, makes things way way easier!

Iron Hands Tactical Squad

This turned up from GW this morning, may make a start on them tonight.


Ok so I think i have my marine colour scheme pinned down but i'm not sure on a chapter name yet, I think they are going to be descendents of either the Iron Hands or Imperial Fists...


Woo I have finished my first ever squad!
