    Foundation paints

    In my opnion the washes are indeed one of the best "hobby" releases by GW in a number of years. While I have been using the older style inks for quite a while now (any one remember the way old flip-top GW paint pots, the ones with the white tops, similar to the P3s?), and I have grown accustom...

    Colour bases for Icy themed undead?

    If you didn't want to do the snow bases look, you could do the Sand, primed black, painted scorced earth, drybrushed various shades of lighter earth. Its quick and easy and done "to death" for lots of different figures, but thats because it looks good. Not to mention it would bring a nice...

    Base Size For Abysmal Terror?

    I know the model you are talking about, could be a cool conversion, shouldn't be impossible either. What about using a large GW flying stand for the chariot itself, then getting Paperclips or small GW flying stands to make the horses Floating/flying. You could also probably mount it on one...

    N1AK's Speed Painting Odyssey

    Nice Job N1AK. So since you are speed painting, I have to ask the question....How long did these take you? I like the purple, its maybe a tat bright for my liking, but perhaps this is what you were going for. I like the aged bronze look of the GG (mine are done in a similar fashion). Keep...

    Wights & necros

    indeed to mimic what the others have said, Great Job! Great minds must think alike cause I to have "converted" the necromancer from the corpse cart to be one of my free standing Necromancers. Cheers, Wilhelm

    Variant Vampire/ Necro Models

    The figures you are refencing are made by reaper (check out Monique D'Noir or however is spelled). They are all roughly the same size. I actually use both Monique and one other figure (forget the name at the moment) in my current army. So size wise you shouldn't have to many problems. One...

    Black Coach Help w/ Reference Picture

    RE: Black Coach Help my advice would be to spray prime the entire thing black (inside and outsides, so this would be done befor assembly) then build the thing. To be honest there isn't much detail on the inside except some of the curtians that are visible. If you wanted to go with the boarded...

    Army List Builder

    Just another quick reply, the "official" new Vampire Counts files are up on the Army Builder page. There are a few little bugs (no enchanted shield option, etc.), but I would expect to see those worked out soon. Yes one has to pay for the inital purchace of army builder, however after that...

    Favorite vampire model?

    Favorite vampire model hmm... I would probably have to go with Monique De Noir from Reaper: Jen Haley's amazing paint job Off of Reaper's main site I believe one of our very own menbers (Ritchie) did a sclupt based off of the 54mm version of her as well. Or there is Judas...

    Lawn of the dead - my VC army log

    Arisen, Thanks for the updated pic, The white balance is much better, and now we can all clearly see the washing/shading in the skin tones and pants. Looks good so far. Keep it up. Wilhelm

    Heavy Infantry 2K campaign list

    Thanks for the reply guys. I defenately see what you are all saying about the extra scroll, and talisman. I guess I took the talisman because I'm always so scared of the general dieing. The problem I was facing is that my Vamp powers are locked in. While I completely agree that...

    Wilhelm's painting log

    the Banshee was very simple. Primed white, then slowly built up washes of Necrotite Green (P3 paint color, I think the closest GW color is Scorpy Green, the really bight yellow green). The washes were very thin, and applied slopply. As the color starts building up you'll begin to see the...

    Lawn of the dead - my VC army log

    Arisen, Nice zombies there. I particularly like the one who lost his arm :D. As far as the paint work, its looks solid (or well rotting) so far. You may want to play around with your camera a little bit. See if you can find anything about "white balance" or "Lighting Type". Looks like...

    Wilhelm's painting log

    Lastly (for now anyway) we have an Empire warrior priest with a simple head swap. He serves as my Wight King. At the time I didn't think any of the current Wight models fit well into the Army of Sylvania (raised empire troops) theme I had going on. I made a little brace for the banner pole...

    Wilhelm's painting log

    Here are a couple of banshees. I was going back and forth when I painted these up trying to decide on blue/green or just green. In the end I choose just green. I wanted them to appear ethereal and ghostly. a bit sloppy in some areas, but overall I like the effect.
