Started Painting Today

by Gyrmalcyn on 02-22-2008 at 02:08 AM
If I could take a decent picture today, I'd photograph my first effort at a skin tone.  I don't like it - very flat and uninteresting.  No life to it at all.Oh, well.  I picked up a second mini after reading a short "how-to" on painting skin.  I've got a base coat on it, and will start building up from there.  Hopefully, I'll end up with something a little more "alive" even though these are the Repentia figures.  I discovered several things as

Some Tools Have Arrived

My mini files and Dremel bits arrived today.  I'm quite pleased, as my mini files actually turned out to be jeweler's files, so much smaller and more precise than the mini files I have buried somewhere in this apartment.So, I spent most of this afternoon cleaning Seraphim and Repentia figures of the remnants of their flash.  Along the way, I managed to break the whip of the Repentia Mistress.  Not a big deal really.. I can either try to pin the two pieces together once my pin

Finding Cheap Ways to Do Things

by Gyrmalcyn on 02-19-2008 at 12:09 AM
After thinking about things for a while, needing to find a way for me to create a handle for my minis, I "tripped" over the idea of using binder clips.  I was trying to think of items that I can easily obtain at a reasonable price, and since I work in an office supply store, they seemed to make sense.  All of my figures have the slot bases, so it's even more convenient.I had to come up with a way to set up the Seraphim jet packs for priming/painting, so asked for tips on the

A Beginning

He's gotten into Tyrannids, to help promote the Games Workshop club and products at the local gaming store he works for.  He only bought a couple of new figures, as he inherited a fairly large base army from a senior player at the store who was looking to get rid of those Tyrannids.  He's been lamenting the lack of things we do together, so I decided to begin my own 40K army.  I decided that I like the fluff and look of the Sisters of Battle, so that's what I'm going with.
