Look at how dark and dingy my paint area is. The other day on my Facebook account, I asked everyone what lighting they use to paint to. The resounding answer was daylight bulbs. I was getting examples ranging from £20 to £105 in the comments. After a recommendation that Hobbycraft (a chain of UK craft stores) carries a range of daylight lamps I thought I'd pop along to my local store and see what they had. Check out what I found after the jump.      


Hey there, an update of the second batch of my Dark Reapers. Another Reaper and the Exarch. The Exarch has a different helmet design with a longer top-knot, so I added a turquoise to blue gradient  as on my Avatar (dip-dye). I can't wait to get this unit finished this week, so stay tuned. What do you think?


I'm cranking along on the Primal Kings Stormhost project. I'm adding Judicators to my small fledging  force. Batch painting is well underway and I'm working on these in pieces. I find it easier to have the arms, torsos and legs separate. These judicators are so much better than the push fit Liberators. My paint scheme benefits from undercoating some pieces white and some pieces black so keeping the parts separate is a good idea. You can't keep the parts separate on the push fit models. Really enjoying these. Hoping to make good progress on these next week.


Hi all, Banzai1000 here with some progress on my Genestealer Cults Armies on Parade project. The above-shown Aberrant is the latest model I finished. Of course, there is a lot more to come, but I am a slow painter going for each model separately.

How about everyone out there? Are you painting your armies in batches or units or as single models? Let us know in the comment section...


I was always taught by my elders (no, not the pointy eared ones) to spend the most money possible on tools. In the long run the cheap tools will break and you will be constantly replacing them and spending more money. I've owned around 6 airbrushes in the past decade. I've had failures ranging from clogged, to split nozzles to bent needles all of which are operator error. It's the 180lb chimp hanging off the end of it that causes them to break. Each of these previous airbrushes has only cost me £30 to £40 and I do get a couple of years use out of each one. So when I saw an airbrush on eBay for less than £13 with free delivery, I thought what the heck. It's worth a shot. Find out what I think of it after the jump.
