  1. Finished the Corpse Cart commission. The customer wanted the corpses/zombies to be an olive green to match his army. Wouldn’t have been my choice but he is happy with the pix so job done I guess. It wasn’t the most interesting model I’ve ever painted but it was another good exercise in turning a commission around efficiently and to the right standard. I’m charging £100, and I reckon I got quite close to completing it in 10 hours, but it’s so hard to measure as I was constantly dipping in and out of other projects alongside it. Things like actually building the model always take longer than I expect, but at the same time I did it with a tray on the sofa while watching telly, so it hardly seems like work.
  2. Tiny fonts in games with a lot of reading. Playing Song of Horror recently and we had to move chairs right in front of the screen to be able to read it, and that was with the font size set to max.
  3. Talking of Lizard Lads, WIP on mine: The GW paint scheme uses quite a dull dark green for the little poison frog, but these are usually bright Orange or red so I went for something like that instead.
  4. The world and his dog is painting the new Horus Heresy set it seems. Meanwhile I’m painting the 10 year old (?) Corpse Cart for a commission. These older kits are really horrible to put together, and the instructions are shite. It’s only when you compare the latest releases to this older stuff that the improvements in sculpts and presentation become apparent. Still, the little pile of zombie bodies is fun enough to paint. I’m far more excited about another commission I’ve just received to paint a set of Starblood Stalkers: I’ve never painted anything as bright and vibrant as these before so I’m excited to really try and execute the job as cleanly and boldly as I can.
  5. Never had an issue with Corax white. Good coverage, smooth consistency after a good shake. I use it a lot for base coating and dry brushing. My current favourite final highlight colour is Gauss Blaster Green, which I’ve used on the brightest points of the cloak folds and the shoulder hot spot here:
  6. This one used to drive me mad as I recognised the voice whenever my gf would watch this years ago: “It puts the lotion on its skin or it gets the hose again Monk…”
  7. I’m guessing the Imperial Fist one, which presumably gives you an instantaneous rich yellow over the white scar spray. Talking of which, the pot version of white scar is one of the worst paints GW sell IMO (along with Rakarth Flesh and Pallid Wych Flesh, every pot of which I’ve had having been full of dry lumps), so I took a punt on the Air brush version, and it’s perfect for brushing straight out of the pot.
  8. I was less interested in the shades initially but the two “white” shades look very useful. Apothecary white doesn’t really do much for me straight out of the pot, but a shade paint in the same ballpark hue might behave better in the recesses.
  9. I’m not even going to pretend I’m not buying the lot.
  10.
