Dipping With Wood Stain





San Francisco, CA

Slopped some wash as the nearly-last step on some GW Isle of Blood elf spear guys. Can never have too many elf spear guys!

I play...

Sigh.

Who am I kidding? I only paint these days...

Finished gluing together my Rogue Trader Eldar War Walker...well everything but the weapons. I intend to use some more current weapons that the Lascanon and original Scatter laser that came with the model.

Apoc game, roughly 12k per side IIRC, took Tyranids for my contribution as the planned Thousand Sons were not ready.

They survived the game, which they didn't do last time, they also held their objective for all but one turn before retaking it, which we didn't manage last time.

We even got close to capturing one, Genestealers nearly did the business with Hormogaunts as a tag team - couldn't quite roll well enough to delete some thunderwolves, the 3++ save ant T5 hurt.

Overall great fun though, 8th edition flows vastly better at this scale, just need to get some toys to handle enemy fliers

Converting an OOP metal Striking Scorpion Exarch so that it has a Scorpion's Claw instead of just the Shuriken Pistol. Very fiddly work on such a small metal model.

Doing the basing on a scout squad. Already messed up big time by getting some superglue onto the painted mini but, eh, I was able to fix it. Just a headache.

It was going too well, anyway. Usually my painting projects have a big screw up.

Making my MK3 marines match the Primaris guys. I put in 1mm as boot soles, 2mm in the upper legs, 1mm in the waste. Brown epoxy putty to smooth things out.

Also decided I'd go with non standard weapon loadouts for my primaris so I made this:



I decided to print sheets and put them in plastic sleeves and put more information on each page so I put stratagems and battleforged abilities like chapter tactics on there as well.

Thanks! It's actually just Rustoleum 2x Coverage Aluminum spray paint, some acrylics for colour and highlights and then an oil wash like scale modellers use. It was my test model to see if I want to get back into doing space marines. In the end, I decided I'd rather do true scale MK3 than get primaris models.
