Yep, Sculpey III. First time using it. It still retains some springiness after baking.

Try using Premo, sculpey's better brother. Less sticky when sculpting and sets up harder.

I've kitbashed an Orc blood bowl team out of 40k Nobz and Boyz and a couple of Black Orc pieces, and they look pretty sweet... except for where I've disarmed them (by cutting the weapons away). I've tried to do it as smoothly as possible but it still looks pretty scrappy and horrid. I suspect there isn't really a solution other than drilling a bit away and trying to resculpt the hand shapes, which I don't think I'm willing or able to do (I have no experience at all with green stuff). What do you suggest?

v
Oh, I don't have my camera with me so I'll ask again later!

Use a large drill bit and make a shallow cone in the fist. Use a utility knife to roughly cut the cone with a few notches to break up the symmetry of it. I'm not explaining it overly well, but I think you get the idea.

I made my Orc team from a box of boyz. Also add "brass knuckles" to your players fists by taking chainsword guards and gluing them in place to hide de-weaponized hands.

100 rare earth magnets 1x8mm $6, free international shipping.

http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.13518

I use them with Mighty Putty on the underside of my bases so I can move my minis around in a tool box and not worry about them sliding about during transport.

Does anyone have 4 chaos space marines they'd be willing to give away or trade? I want them for Warriors in a Chaos Blood Bowl team because the metal ones that GW offers look like rear end.

Have anything interesting for trade? I play Nids and Guard.

Several pounds of reaper and grenadier minis covering every size and type you can likely imagine.

And a smattering of GW stuff.

I'll make a better list later but off the top of my head:

1 Battle sister Seraphim (or whatever their jump pack ones are called)
1 Chaos terminator with sword and bolter
1 SM terminator with lightning claws and big knife thing.
1 SM sniper scout

3-4 Fantasy halflings
20-ish misc. fantasy fighters and orcs from 2nd ed (maybe)
A bunch of Gors and Ungors mostly on the sprue. (current ed)

I used green stuff for the first time a few days ago with so-so results. What I'd like to know is other than liberally covering it and the working surfaces and tools with water how do you stop it from sticking to everything? I was amazed at how tacky it was.

Air brushing, I know it has been posted about before but I can't find those posts in the other thread so I'll ask here.

Gravity fed or siphoned?

Has anyone tried spraying primer? If so where do you get liquid primer and what type?

I have the compressor but need to know about the airbrushes so I buy the best unit for hobby painting.

Thanks.

Exemplar Cinerators



Emboldened from the wounds inflicted by the impure, Exemplar Cinerators move ahead of their brothers in arms, the Bastions, to breach enemy ranks with flame and steel. Cinerators channel the agony of their wounds into holy rage and are armed with ancient blades and shields passed down from fallen Knights through the centuries. An unquenchable flame flickers across the blade, blazing white-hot when wielded in battle.

Looks like actually useful Bastions

And people laugh at 40K shoulder pads, yikes!

Cross posting my work from the miniwargaming forum: This months project was to make a piece of terrain with a "chip tube". http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DSeJDsjNzRw

This structure came to me while eating chips and watching TV, guess which show it was. (It didn't really, but its a good story.)

Supplies: The chip tube, 2 hose washers, plastic rod, foamcore and an old Dungeon Bowl door.


Step1: Cut the tube to length. Cut a seam up the back and roll the tube into a cone. Glue it and clamp it.


Step2: Cut out the windows and door. Cut out the foamcore bits, glue them and the washers in place.


Step3: Cover the model in spackle for that authentic stone look.


Step4&5: Attach the rivets (made from the plastic rod). Prime and paint it.


Step6: Set it up on a grassy hill and start playing.


Just beware of the crazy Cthulhu Cultist, Squidwardson who lives there...uh-oh, RUN!


For added fun use a battery powered tealight to jazz up the place.

I made a barrel today


I finally built a spray booth so i can use my airbrush indoors, first test was this barrel, also gave me a good chance to try out salt-masking.

seconding the request for a tutorial of these.

Also Airbrush Goons. Do you have any fancy airbrush gubbins as part of your set up? Specifically a filter or dryer that is fitted in the line between your compressor and your airbrush? I have seen both of these at my local hardware store but as they are mostly geared for 'industrial' use I don't know if any of their stuff is needed or wanted for airbrushing.

I've got the compressor and an airbrush, now I just need the time and nerve to get on with using it.

As expected, people said his body is too small, the back wheel is too drat weedy, and he needs some better weapons. After hopping on ebay for some supplies, and rummaging in my bits bags, he now looks like this:





The body has been replaced with a familiar warboss sized one, which means he's awkwardly turning to the left slightly and has some featureless sides, but oh well. A track instead of the tiny wheel, and some rough GSing which needs tidying up, but I feel he is nearly complete. Anyone have anything that they see needs urgently changed before the final tidying up and basecoating?

Beyond possibly adding a grot or a squig to the front faring no, it looks much better.

Before I start highlighting this bitch, do the colours look ok? It's my variation on the Nordland Blue/Yellow.

After a quick test in photoshop I think orange feathers would look better as they contrast the blue but doesn't clash with the yellow. Also make the feathers multi-tonal, few birds have feathers of unbroken colour.

So for my blood angels High Elves, what should I base them with? Obviously with all the warm colors it should be something grey and dead, right?

I was going to say use the contrast notion of green goes with red, but upon reflection a healthy green grass base would likely pull your eye off the mini so a black small rocks/pebbles base with a grey hi-lite and some tiny patches of dead static grass would probably be a better idea.
