  1. Something about AOS has always felt off to me. I suppose I prefer a more LOTR-esque feel to fantasy.
  2. Also, maybe there used to be a time when varnishes were of inferior quality and gloss was better, but thats not the case anymore nowadays =]. Now if they could only revolutionize the spray varnishes to function in all conditions... Frosting is the most annoying miniature painting thing ever XD.
  3. Biochemist here and I've put varnishes under some stress tests. Gloss varnish being stronger is a myth that has been around for a long time. The only benefit of gloss varnish is that its easy to see if you covered every spot on a model before applying the matt varnish, which again, makes it easy to spot if you covered everything with gloss varnish first. I do find that matte varnish sometimes covers poorly on gloss since it slightly dissolves the gloss layer, so nowadays I just go straight to matte varnish and use a giant brush to cover large areas quickly and evenly, especially areas that are likely to be touched a lot. On top of that, I haven't found much of a difference between 1 or multiple layers of varnish. My go-to brand right now for durability is Army painter's anti shine brush on varnish, however Vallejo does well as well. You can get the same varnish from art stores at larger volumes, but it'll cost more than a small bottle, so I just stick with hobby varnishes for now. Army painter's varnish does sometimes leave a slightly rough/bubbly texture when it dries in crevices, which isn't optimal, so make sure you don't get build up or varnish foam anywhere.
  4. Hey all, as some of you may know, I have a (somewhat) growing MTG youtube community over at https://youtube.com/KuganeGaming However, currently I'm starting to consider to do some Warhammer videos, mainly Age of Sigmar. The thing I am considering the most is painting tutorials, does any of you have any suggestions what I could add? =] I have considered battlereports in a similar fashion that I handle the magic footage, but with Covid being a thing, I have no idea how to properly set that. Either way! Any tips would be appreciated^^. Perhaps I could stick with Warhammer video games, lol.
  5. Is it too late for pirate vampires though? On a side note, glad the new warband finally discovered that walking barefoot on a battlefield full of spikes and debris may not be a good plan. Kind of wonder whats up with GW and making bald bare chest, bare feet miniatures XD
  6. And then to top it all off, finding out that the ugliest giant variant is the go-to competitive option rules-wise.
  7. I thought i saw it on the arm of the pictured gargant. Check his wrist.
  8. Personally i would prefer new chapters that are represented with a chapter colour, a head and shoulder swap. Not thrilled to buy yet another series of new minis if it comes to that, lol.
  9. Its time to start sculpting your own out of green stuff. Or... toilet paper rolls. Both equally valuable.
  10. Barring some psychotic people, I don't think many people wish this type of harm upon themselves or others. So I don't think blame or responsibility should lie with them. Diseases happen, and with the way our population density and globalization keeps increasing, we are going to face more outbreaks like this, many could even be worse than Corona. What I feel is slightly rediculous is the fact that all of this could have been avoided if people practiced some proper hygiene. Also, acting before infections start, not after, would have been a huge help to avoid all this. If the quarantine started globally the moment they started seeing it spread to other countries, the disease could have been contained much easier. Yet, the majority just stood by waiting for stuff to get serious before taking any proper action.
  11. At times like this I wish games like warhammer underworlds wasnt locked behind a pay wall. I think GW really missed the mark in an era of F2P games where people can buy the cards/stuff they need ingame. Especially now in the whole quarantine.
  12. I had very bad results using on corax and grey seer myself, so seems the wraithbone is almost a must for these. I didnt for this model, but lahmian medium 1:9 ratio helps me more than contrast medium for proper flow.
  13. Purple? I did the skin with guilliman on wraith bone on this miniature, but can't seem to notice the purple. Do you have a bad pot perhaps?
