  1. @Heijoshin I decided to go the contrast route as an experiment and it is going pretty quickly. I wanted someth8ng to match my Nagash, which was painted along Duncan’s video. Prime Wraithbone, wash Skeleton Horde, drybrush Screaming Skull. Armor is Shyish Purple highlighted with Russ Grey and Fenrisian Grey, then washed Druchii Violet. Swords are Terradon Turquoise highlighted with Temple Guard Blue. Robes are Incubi Darkness and Ulthuan Grey, blended with Coelia Greenshade, then highlighted. The eyes get a couple coats of Waywatcher Green and the gems are Incubi Darkness highlighted up to Gauss Blaster Green. The squad took a few hours throughout the week. I was able to get through Feast of Bones in two weeks with only a few hours available each week. I would say for speed, contrast is the way to go for this army. It’s easy to add the highlights you want.
  2. Vallejo Surface Primer with airbrush, Apothecary White, drybrush White Scar. Vader was pleased with my progress. Sorry for the off subject photo😀
  3. I’ve used Vallejo white surface primer through the airbrush with Apothecary White on some Stormtroopers. There is not any kind of chemical reaction with contrast and primer. You just want a light primer. The color primer would depend of what contrast you are using. You also want to make sure there is a matching paint for touch ups.
  4. All the pics I’ve seen are really dark or blurry because of motion. I think regular bone colors would work best with the green glowing eyes for spot color. The armor looks like it has a lot of verdigris, so Nihlakh Oxide to help age. Doesn’t look very rusty, though. Dark clothing would help set off the bronze and verdigris. Good luck.
  5. Not really what you are looking for, but you can use this to compare your models and see if they are out of print. http://www.one-ring.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=30&t=15007 GW has been doing a lot of reprints and made to order, but not with everything. You might do a better job scouring eBay with the miniature or set name.
  6. @Maturin I’ve been playing for over 25 years and as far as I can recall, GW tournaments used to always be 3 colors and based minimum. That was the rule up until ‘Ard Boyd, which kind of ruined the hobby for me for a while. As far as playing in the store, I see people playing casual with unpainted minis. However, they are usually new to the hobby or just bought something new for their army. While I would prefer to play against opponents who had painted armies, I can also enjoy playing against new people who are just learning. Battlefleet Gothic actually had a rule that your ships took a critical hit each turn if they weren’t painted. As for your Stormcast, it’s a good start. One suggestion I would have would be build up your black highlights prior to putting on the gold. After priming black, add a thinned layer of Eschin Grey, then drybrush Dawnstone. Add two coats of Nuln Oil and you could then add some edge highlights of Dawnstone, if you want to take it a step further. It’s a pretty simple process and will give you good results. Your other colors look spot on and that little bit of highlight will make them pop. Everybody has their different parts that they enjoy about the hobby. I personally hate building models and would prefer to just paint. The biggest thing is that the hobby is for both players and they both have to get enjoyment out of it. Good luck.
  7. I bought a small white wood tray from hobby lobby and a foam sheet. Stained the tray to look nice. All for about $3. You can also look on Amazon, they have a lot. Depends on how large you want and the type. https://www.amazon.com/SIQUK-Folding-Hexagon-Leather-Dungeons/dp/B07L92TSMR/ref=sr_1_10?keywords=Dice+tray&qid=1566650416&s=gateway&sr=8-10
  8. My daughter has been interested in painting and trying to play AoS, so she got the Slaanesh half of Wrath and Rapture. While she is not allowed to read the fluff, she has started painting and will hopefully have enough to play soon. I’m getting her a start collecting, which should get her to 1k points. I haven’t gotten the book, yet, but I’m thinking about the following: Bladebringer on Exalted Chariot Infernal Enrapturess 10x Daemonettes 5x Hellstriders with Hellscourges 5x Seekers 3x Fiends This takes her to 900 points and gives her 10 Daemonettes to summon. What would be the best endless spell to run? Dreadful Visage or Wheels of Excurtiation? She doesn’t like the Hellstrider models, so we are going to convert them using Daughters of Khaine bits and Dark Eldar Wych legs to replace the Daemonette feet. Also, would Hellscourges be good or Clawspears? Thanks
  9. These two were started a while ago, but I just finished them. School starts back up for me on Monday and I’m trying to knock out all of the unfinished stuff sitting around. For the Lord Arcanum, I tried some contrast for the Grif-Charger. I wanted to try Volupus Pink for the body and Magos Purple for the feathers. The pink was way too dark, even thinned down. As I tried to highlight it, it just started to look like a big wad of Hubba Bubba. So, I went back with Warpfied Grey and Slaanesh Grey to tone it down. It looks a lot better. I’ve had Horticulus sitting in the cabinet since Blightwar came out. I’m not a fan of the model, but now I only have Bloab to paint and all of my Nurgle is complete. Although, I probably need another unit of Blight Kings.
  10. So, apparently there were issues with my entry for Everchosen. The store wasn’t following the rules appropriately, I guess. I thought I entered the open competition, but they had everything lumped together. I don’t know. I was just trying to help get more entries. Anyway, I probably should have just entered something smaller, but it was the army I had with me. On to another update. I finished painting the first 5 Auric Hearthguard. I also finished 2 Grimwraths, but need to base them. For the bases, I’m using the Shattered Dominion painted metallics. I also gave lava flow a little try. Because the metallics were too overwhelming, I added the new Mordant Earth and added some Fuegan to the cracks.
  11. Good luck. Achievable goals are the best.
  12. I have a small Sylvaneth army for sale or trade (location USA). It is about 1300 points painted and a box of Dryads NOS. Treelord Anchient Branchwraith Branchwych 2 units of 5 Tree Revenants 10x Dryads 3x Kurnoth Hunters with Scythes 3x Kurnoth Hunters with Bows Original wooden dice OOP Painting Guide NOS box of Dryads Retail is $433. I’d like to get $350 or equivalent retail trade in Idoneth Deepkin.
  13. Wow, this is epic. I can’t wait to see it painted.
  14. Not AoS, but I was asked to enter something for Everchosen at my LGS. It's a small store and they were trying to drum up interest, as most people play Star Wars or D&D there. I was pleasantly surprised that I won.
  15. Now, I did start something new. I’ve always liked the Fyreslayers, but have been hesitant to give it a go. With the new book and the White Dwarf additions, I picked up a few things. The Magmadroth is painted almost entirely with contrast paint and took about 6 hours. The Father and Son are magnetized, so I can switch them out. Eventually, I would like to get two more SC’s and have another magnetized and a Smiter on one in the black paint scheme. We’ll get there eventually. I’m currently working on some Grimwraths and 2 units of Auric Hearthguard that I found cheap on eBay.
