  1. Games Workshop, An Appreciation Thread

    I’m really impressed with the sculpts that they are producing now. Back in the early 90s they were doing more plastic minis but I always thought they were crap, but looking at them know the details and scale Is amazing. I got a unexpected typhus mini for Christmas and it is awesome. I am a bit daunted about starting it as I want to be able to do it justice. It the ones the back. These are my next ones to start, still got a few things to glue into place yet. Except it wont let me upload a pic now! Anyway it is a stormcast eternal, a chaos warrior and Typhus, herald of the plague god

    I’ve been painting one of the minis I got for Christmas, I’m really pleased with the loincloth, although it does not seem to pop as much in photos. Here is a wip.

    Nice one, thanks for that. Jesus though, ‘94. Where did it go!

    Does anyone have any idea when these judge knock offs, Adeptus Arbites, were released? I had a brief dalliance with painting these after ditching painting and wargaming when I was a teenager, but I cannot remember the year. Looking back at at these models I don’t know how GW got away with it! These are not my efforts, it’s s google pic
  5. The Miniatures Appreciation Thread

    I’m using army painter brushes, it was the insane detail brush I have been using. I’ve found following the oft repeated maxim of thinning your paints has been helpful. I just wish I had known back in the day.

    That’s two more done, well apart from the bases. I have bottled doing any edge highlighting yet, I’m worried I’ll balls up what I’ve already done. I reckon though I can go back to them later when I’ve got better bush control. All in all I’ve had a blast these last few nights painting, the hours disappear though and I suffered a bit in the morning having to get the kids up and ready for school. Worth it though!
  7. The Miniatures Appreciation Thread

    Thanks, I got the army painter starter set, but there is no gold for my ultramarines, so a trip to hobby craft tomorrow. My favourite chapter was the space wolves but I’m going to make it easy on myself and just do Them as ultramarines while I’m getting my eye in.
  8. The Miniatures Appreciation Thread

    Thanks to this thread I’ve picked up a brush after about 25 years. I asked for some little plastic men and paints for my 42nd birthday. I’ve had a blast today, apart from realising my eyesight is not as good as I once was. Here is my first effort the first strike set. I’m pretty happy with it although the tentacles need more highlights.
  9. Did Star Wars ANH get a UK rerelease?

    I saw it in the local working mens club, it must have been about 1980. It was shown in the concert room on a projector. They used to show films a lot when I was a kid but Star Wars is the only one I can properly remember.
  10. Also available from all good £1 emporiums. My wife goes all out for me at Xmas!
  11. I'll give these a try thanks.
  12. My wife bought me for Christmas a book called the elfish gene, it's about the authors teenage years as a role player in the 70s/80s. He has a bit of a negative view of the whole scene but it was a good read, brought back lots of memories. Dors anyone one know any other books like this that are worth a punt?
  13. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

    I've been redoing some missions now I've completed it, and I did the honey bee mission last night. when the skulls made an appearance I fucked their shit up, felt good after all the hiding and running from them I did on the first run through.
  14. Has a video game ever made you cry?

    Guiles' ending in streetfighter 2, when he goes home to his family nearly made me cry. In my defense I was 16 and tripping on a purple ohm, watching my mate play in a dingy back room of a computer shop. I managed to hold it together due to the fact I was with my mates and they would have taken the piss, which you don't want when you are tripping.
  15. level 86 and struggling with bitterblack? I'm only at level 49 so I think its time to leave gransy for a while. I've enjoyed my time here but I can't be arsed to grind the levels to be able to compete at bitterblack. I'm going to play Blooddragon instead I think.
