This is a guide to painting Tyranids quickly to a good tabletop standard. I've been using this technique to get my army ready for the PCRC's Cold Feet on Frigia campaign. I'll be referencing some older paint names (as I still have lots of them) but working out the modern equivilents shouldn't be too hard (there's a link to the conversion guide here).

 

Undercoat

 Welcome to the first part of my guide to working with LEDs and toy soliders. Part one will deal with selecting LEDs and designing your circuit. Later parts will discuss inserting them into models. I'm going to assume you know how to use a soldering iron to solder two bits of wire together, but otherwise I'll attempt to start from the basics.

Apologist and I played our first game of WH40K 6th edition last week, and our initial impression of the new rules is very positive. We kept things fairly simple and both took large infantry armies. I was a little worried that removing casualties from the front and the lack of initiative boost from Furious Charge would hinder the Orks, but they still did pretty well in combat, as well as laying down a lot of fire power.

I'm taking a brief break from the Daemons to prep my next project - Classic Tyranids.

These are a long overdue revamp of my 2nd edition Tyranid army. The undercoat was Army Painter 'Pure Red' undercoat and their colourscheme will be 'classic' red and bone. Once they're all undercoated I'll probably put them back in the cupboard until after the Shale campaign is complete.

I mentioned this in my previous painting article, but thought it merited its own article. Games Workshop have released a chart to help you find equivalents for your existing painting in their new range. This is very handy if you're half-way through painting an army or want to follow one of our older painting guides.

Apologist and I played our first game of Grind last night.

The PCRC is starting a dalliance with Warmachine and Hordes. The background is yet to capture my imagination in the same way that 40K does, but I've enjoyed the handful of games I've played so far, and the miniatures are fun to paint.

Whenever we try a new game I tend to gravitate towards the "commies" for some reason. It happened in AT-43 and it's happening again now. This isn't due to political preference, I just like their aesthetic. Here's my 20 point battle group so far.

Following on from my article on painting Nurgle daemons, here's a quick guide to painting Slaanesh daemons. It's not a 'traditional' Slaanesh colour scheme, but it does use some colours normally associated with the Dark Prince, as well as allowing the two different daemonic factions to look good together on the table top.

I've recently started work on a Daemon army for the PCRC's Tale of Eight Gamers  project. Rather than the traditional green Nurgle Daemon skin that you often see, I wanted to try some more fleshy tones - well, rotting fleshy tones.

The formula I used is below. It uses Citadel paints unless specified otherwise.

Hi there. Welcome to my miniature photography guide. I have seen a lot of people posting pictures of their models around the net on places such as warseer and dakkadakka, but so often their photos look fuzzy or dark and lose a lot of detail in the model, which is a great shame since most of them are kick-ass models that deserve to be shown off. In an effort to stop repeating myself to everybody, I have created this page as a guide to hopefully help a bunch of you take better pictures of your models in a simple way without resorting to a lot of photography jargon.
