    Black foam sheets?

    Buy the foam from an industrial packaging website! Its very inexpensive and you get an enormous roll of it to cut and customize. There are two types of foam: closed cell, which is hard and solid with not a lot of give and open cell, which is soft and spongy. The army cases use open cell foam...

    How to get these colors

    Amazing transitions between the shadows, midtone and highlights. An area like the legs or the cheekbones on the face have realistic shadows that are appropriately subtle but still well defined enough to be seen on the mini. I can tell you that you'll want a grey containing some blue and a...

    Playing the game? Or playing the rules...

    So I played some quick scenarios at our gaming club asking people to show me using any army why conga lines are detested. I had thought of their primary advantage as being more maneuverable and they have the weakness of presenting a HUGE flank to the enemy, but their use to hold up powerful...

    Asking for critique

    Your brush control is solid as evidence by the face of the last model and ork's teeth. It also looks like you have a good understanding of where to place the shadows to give high contrast. One difference between your painting and the very best painters is the smoothness of the transitions...

    Bright Freakin Hott Pink!

    Vallejo Model Color Transparent Red + very little of any white worked well. I also made a intense, bright hot pink from P3's Murderous Magenta added to a less intense pink I'd made from GW white and GW Mephiston Red. I tried to put down a basecoat of the P3 Magenta and then layering the pinks...

    Playing the game? Or playing the rules...

    I'm a new player but surely the best practice is just bringing it up to your opponent before hand. Rules like the ones in question aren't the only grey areas in the game. The fact that rule adjudication is left up to the players gives us the flexibility and power to change the game in any way...

    Thank you from the bottom of my shriveled undead heart, this was exactly what I was hoping to learn about. I had seen people here talk about moonwalking their vargheists and the conga line but even reading the special rules and movement sections of the WHFB rulesbook didn't clear up this tactic...

    Ready for fun with VC

    I played four games against my brother with a bunch of lists and found I like the movement phase and really detest my opponent's wizards! I love the direwolves and vargheists a lot but had a hard time keeping them alive, so I'll focus on using things to provide regen and resurrection. Is it...

    Ready for fun with VC

    When I was in grad school, board games were a very popular way to socialize and it was then that I saw people playing WHFB in the game store. But time and money are scarce, so Warhammer was a dream deferred. Now grad school is over and its time to play! I looked into the different army...
