    Trying to ignore the country fucking itself by painting layer after layer of S75 iroko

    Indeed, we’ll call that mistake 1. Iirc the advised way is to paint it brown before yellow. I only the other hand just went over the duster with light grey primer (there were a couple of bits the primer hadn’t stuck to, think they were still wet when I primed it) so next coat should hopefully be better.

    Just blocking in some colours, very much based on my sartorial choices in RDR2. I’m already regretting the mustard duster, so many coats to go.

Sure it’s a bit heavy handed at times but seeing how those characters change over time and how their relationships change was the high point for me.

    When I was thinking about getting back into mini paint at the end of 2017 I backed the Imfamy Collectables Kickstarter. I didn’t get my arse in gear to do some paint until like June last year, and now I’ve finally gotten around to building the minis from infamy. Cannot wait to paint these, hopefully can do them justice. Bear Wild Bill Mr Dodgson Dr Henrietta Jekyll

    Even if it is true that doesn’t change much. It’s not an uncoerced yes, trapped in his hotel room what happens if they say no? That’s the calculation these women are making, not do I want to see Louis masturbate but how do I survive this. It’s the implication from Alwsys Sunny. Also, on the leaked shit from his show I saw this on FB and thought it made an interesting point. I just took the relevant sections the rest is related to US politics.

    I’m at my parents’ over Xmas and have been digging around in the back of cupboards & have found the first minis I ever painted back in ‘94. So for your entertainment: I obviously had no idea about priming as you can see from the bare metal where paint’s come off. Or anything else to do with painting really.

    Some painting related presents for Xmas, looking forward to playing with the inks. I would recommend the the book, the bits I’ve read are very interesting.

    Christmas gaming

    Man… perudo, that takes me back. So many lunch times at Lionhead gone to that game. I really need to pick it up, been too long. I’ve been playing Exploding Kittens with my nephew and my parents. Nephew being 10 and far to into gaming YouTube & Fortnite decided he’d just commentate one round of it as an annoying YouTuber - bright future ahead of him if he can keep the racism in check

    Just seen on FB that ppl are getting an art book with Warhammer Conquest, apparently it’s an opt out thing, details here https://fauxhammer.com/news/psa-warhammer-conquest-is-about-to-charge-you-extra/ If any of our Conquest subscribers are getting one they don’t want I’ll happily take it off your hands. Edit: by which I mean I’ll pay for it. I’ve already got the Art of Warhammer 40K, it can have a friend.

    My hatred of the Ultramarines comes from 2nd edition when I played where they were presented as the goodie two shoes, the ideal space marines, if you wanted to play your own chapter you used their codex as that’s the way it was done. In the fluff they were the ones that set down all the rules on how to be a marine chapter. I.e. they were the boring, teacher’s pets of the space marines. I hated them, I was far more interested in the Blood Angels (broken vampires) and Dark Angles (traitors), and Codex Angels of Death was awesome second only to Codex Chaos.
