Subject: Re:Gitsplitta's Unified Painting Theory (5/7: new rules Bushido battle report!)
New video is up! The first ever channel give-a-way to celebrate 150 subscribers. Thank you all for your support of an old fart trying to do something useful on these new-fangled internets. It's been a lot of fun for me and I hope to bring you a lot more interesting and entertaining videos in the future!
Drawing for the fabulous prize is next Saturday. (18th I think)
On the hobby side, I just finished building the "dog pack" for my Savage Wave war band (that's the red demon guys). I'm really, really excited about these models. Not only painting them but playing them as well. There are 4 dogs plush the alpha (the big one) as well as a special Oni that gives them all buffs (the alpha buffs them too). They're also not very costly point-wise, so in the now standard 100 point tournament list, I have 38 points to play with. At the moment, I'm thinking of taking the two small oni (actually onisho) that I've painted already... leaving me 5 points for gear and upgrades.
I've decided to paint them up like Riddick's jackal from the movie "Riddick". The ears aren't right on the models, but while I could custom build the ears... I just don't think it's worth the effort. Maybe on the alpha, we'll see.
In other news, Ben at Master Crafted Miniatures was kind enough to throw in a bunch of miscast bits with my last order. While I'll be using a lot of it as-is on my Oni bases (to represent them tearing through a temple), I was able to cobble together some of the bits Dr. Frankenstein-like and come up with a number of serviceable pieces... most of which will get painted and tossed into the "for Adepticon" pile of resources or given to new players to help get them started. The wall section and the little dudes I'm going to hang on to though... because they're especially cool. Thanks Ben.
Guess that's it for now. 'Till later...

Look forward to seeing how the dogs and bits come out with a splash of paint.
Well done on the channel.
I have more files than I know what to do with already
The army- ~2295 points (built).

I thought I'd post a pic for a change. Did a little how-to video on using spray cans like airbrushes, specifically using spray primers to do grey stone. Had this little guy as the subject. It's a spirit statue made by Mastercrafted Miniatures. Nothing fancy here... but a fun little bit of terrain (or objective), whatever you'd like. He's not as speckly to the eye as he appears here. For some reason the lights really make him look like he's got major spatter when that's not the case at all. The gradient looks quite good IRL.
I have hopes of getting some more interesting painting done, but at the moment the combination of low temps and high humidity are keeping me from getting things primed.
Looks good to me. Even if there were splats, most people would just think a bird roosted there .
