The Seadrake – Dragons + Ships

First off, I HATE painting light colours, by light colours I mean pale colours such as white, yellow, etc. It’s why I play Necrons, Imperial Guard and Blood Angels – I use strong dark colours in all of my armies. So tackling the Seadrake, was always going to be a pain for me. Looking at the… Continue reading The Seadrake – Dragons + Ships

Grimnir’s Thunder – the Alliance’s carrier

So in my previous post, I discussed how I painted the blimps of the Grimnir’s Thunder. Here I’ll discuss the ship itself…. Grimnir’s Thunder is the armour tank of the alliance and one of two (arguably the only true) carrier of the Alliance’s fleet. She’s a behemoth of metallics and if WD 382 is to… Continue reading Grimnir’s Thunder – the Alliance’s carrier

Grimnir’s Thunder – Fun with Blimps

When I decided to paint Grimnir’s Thunder I was expecting to have an easy job – I mean look at it…. It’s just greens, and metallics (and base which is pretty easy tbh – see my earlier post on how I do these). Little did I realise that it’s a tad more complicated than I… Continue reading Grimnir’s Thunder – Fun with Blimps

Dreadfleet – Painting the Skabrus

After finishing the Skabrus base, it was time to get on with painting the zombie giant fish itself (again, majority of this was from following details in WD 382 but I did deviate here or there as colours – and my paint supplies demanded). I started with a Chaos Black undercoat and brushed Deneb Stone… Continue reading Dreadfleet – Painting the Skabrus

Dreadfleet – Painting the Skabrus base

In my previous post on painting water, I said the effect should be fine for all of the bases bar the Skabrus, and here’s why. Unlike the other bases, the Skabrus has ‘organs’, you see the Skabrus is a giant undead, zombie fish, crewed by undead Skaven…. so we need to not only pick out… Continue reading Dreadfleet – Painting the Skabrus base

The Stormraven – Part 3

Continued from Stormraven – Part 2. To finish off the final detail work I needed to “soot” up my engines – easy, Games Workshop’s Stormraven guide tells you to apply 3 coats of Badab Black (one after the other when dry) and stipple in some Chaos Black. Next, it was time for assembly. As I’m… Continue reading The Stormraven – Part 3

Dreadfleet – Painting water

In painting our Dreadfleet models, I was forced to learn how to paint water for the bases. There’s no secret to it, Games Workshop have published a pretty good step-by-step guide in October’s White Dwarf (WD382), which I recommend you pick up if you haven’t already as it is packed full of painting guides for… Continue reading Dreadfleet – Painting water

Army Manager

People sometimes ask me how I draw up my army lists, what software I use, do I have a spreadsheet, etc. etc. So I thought I’d share my thoughts on a few options. At the moment I use a piece of freeware called Battlescribe, which is a modular army generator. It’s data files don’t hold… Continue reading Army Manager

The Stormraven – Part 2

Continued on from Stormraven – Part 1. After the base coat, it was time to use the airbrush to re-coat the exterior surfaces with Blood Red, and time to start work on the interior detailing such as the seating and the screens.     Once again, GW’s Guide provided some excellent tips, especially on gem effects for screens –… Continue reading The Stormraven – Part 2
