About Me

  1. Hi there folks! I want to ask a question that, is simple to many, but not to me 🤣 How to do layering well? I started painting minis in the early 2000s with Confrontation wargame. Then I had some chaos stuff for my Hordes of Chaos (6th ed of WFB), then some Necrons for 40k, and then minis for Hordes and Warmachine games. I wasn't a good painter honestly but recently (at the beginning of this year) I improved a lot. Some of my minis to give you an idea (Lord of Chaos, three Skeletons from Shadespire, a Glaivewraith Stalker and a Vampire Lord on a Nightmare steed): I am satisfied with them but I think I could learn something about layering and by doing so, improve my painting skills. Can you guys help me somehow? Do you know an article, a blog post or an online video tutorial that shows in a very detailed way how to do layers well?
  2. Hello everyone. I need help with my army and advice, tips. I know that there are so many ways to play. And it all depends on the person. So the last few games i played i Turtle all the way and it did not help. I have been feeling it has been holding me back. So i need advice on what to do. I am open to all suggestions. This is my first army and i love the Stormcast. My army Roster: Lord-Celestant On Dracoth Knight-Venator(with Realmhunter's Bow) Knight-Vexillor (with Meteoric Standard) Lord-Celestant Lord-Relictor Lord-Veritant (with Gryph-Hound ) 2x Liberators (warhammer & Shields) 2x Judicators (Skybolt bow & Shockbolt bow) Paladin Retributors Prosecutors with Celestial Hammers
  3. hey im new to playing as savage orruks just after some strategy and tips on how to use them, also would like to know what weapons people have in a 30 unit savage orrukk unit i was thinking 15 chompas and 15 stikkas
  4. Started Warhammer about a month ago and I am creating a 2k death army. My army so far is comprised of the following... Arkhan the Black Necromancer Wight King w/ Axe 30 skeleton warriors 5 Black Knights 2 Morghast Archai I was wondering how I am doing so far and what units I should add/remove to have the best composition that works within the rules. I am discovering new rules every day and don't want to purchase too much or too little of units. This army is currently 1180 in points.
  5. These are copies of a discussion I've been having in a Google+ community about using Water Effects and my experiments so far. Hopefully others can add to it here. Part 1: Does anyone know any tutorials or videos for making pools and water effects on bases??? Part 2: Ok, here is the one I've started working on as a test. I've tried the Vallejo water effects first, but it isn't sitting flat. I'm going to keep adding to it. I've ordered some clear plastic beads to go in before I do the next layer and I'll top it up again. I've added some Nurgles rot to get the green tinge. Part 3: So the water effects experimentation continues. I added the microbeads to the water effects and it works but is very subtle. It also didn't really help having the sand on the bottom of the water as the bubbles and sand grit intermingle making it hard to pick them out. For the Allarielle model I think I will make the water deeper so the bottom can't be seen which will hopefully make the bubbles work better. I also think I overdid it a bit which gave a more crystalline effect in places where the beads piled up (this might make a great Ice Base...). However by continually topping up the water effects I have managed to fill the base and it does look slimy. I also popped the model I painted in the 45 minute speed painting completion for the Painting Masters (an event we did in the UK at the start of 2015 alongside the Gaming Masters) just so the base dissent go to waste. I think I'll add some more plants as its a bit bare but I', not that concerned as its a basing exercise.
  6. Some nice and simple rules (which I pinched off The Warhammer Forum - Thanks Bugman!) Selling Decent photos with full descriptions are best. Don't hide faults, be honest and don't be over generous with your wording. Short and simple. Use PayPal. It's safer and fairer for everyone. Cash in hand is another good way to do business but not if goods are'nt there to swap. Don't be offended if the money is not gifted, see below for why Weigh your items including packaging Send via a trackable courier. Royal Mail recorded delivery is okay for small items but if it gets lost, you will only get the cost back of the sale. Eg sell a tact squad for a £5 and RM loose it, you only get a £5 back Sending via a trackable courier means that a trackable code is given and you get some insurance, more can be brought Upload the tracking number to PayPal. Failure to do this can mean Paypal disputes go against you even if you can later show it tracking wrap your minis well. Bubble wrap is good with lots of balls of paper in a strong box. Remember the YouTube clip where a box falls off a lorry and gets run over before being picked up, that could be your box. Remember under PayPal, you are responsible for the package until it arrives at the persons house. take pictures as you pack. Everyone has a digital Camera somehow and can easily delete when package arrives Some websites Bugman has used are: http://www.royalmail.com - Single small packs and miniatures sent via 2nd class recorded. Don't pay more then £4 because.... http://www.collectplus.co.uk - £4 for a tracked 2kg parcel with £50 insurance that I can drop off at my local spar shop (Check on the website for your local particpating shop, it may be a newsagents, sparcet al) and get delivered by yodel? Very quick and my favourite choice by far. Will do up to 10kg for £8 but check your box sizing. http://www.interparcel.com - Send it via their "interparcel" choice and at present that means being picked up by UPS with tracking and insurance. Since it goes via UPs even internationally it will be delivered by UPS in a foreign country. http://www.parcelmonkey.con - Used a few times with various couriers and there Customer service is good. Trackable and insured. From the above two, I always use a proper courier (UPS is my voice) Myhermes may be cheaper but I have seen a few go missing in their system Nightlife has suggested: http://www.p4d.co.uk/ ,similar to parcel monkey above Examples of real life posting : 40K large rulebook. Weighs a ton and I said it would cost only £3 via 1st class recorded. Silly me. Royal Mail wanted over £8 but collectplus did it for £4 High Elf Army to Spain - Too big for Royal Mail and tracked and insured by Parcel force for £45, and that's sent via Spain's notoriously slow PO. Interparcel a UPS service did it for £12 and it was delivered in 4 days and tracked all the way Ogre Army UK - Too heavy for RM and parcelforce wanted £40. Didn't know about interparcel or collectplus but this was sent via citylink using parcelmonkey for around £23 with £500 insurance (upgrade). Was able to drop it off at the local citylink depot. Buying Make sure you know what you're getting and how's it's getting to you. Don't be afraid to ask for more pictures Check feedback for that person. If they only have a few feedback a and/or a low post count, doesn't mean it's bad but there is a red flag waving Send via PayPal, not cheque or cash or moneygram DO NOT GIFT - why? If it falls through, PayPal can't refund your money. Having said that, there are several people whom I have traded with and after the initial few times, I now gift, because I know them, otherwise forget it. Make sure when sending the money you say what it's for and what postage, you want it recorded with the number and make sure it's insured Upon arrival, if the box is dented or broken, make sure it's noted in the signature and accepted under protest as damaged, or just refuse the package check the package ASAP, leaving it for a few days seriously reduces any chance of an insurance claim I also want to mention that these aren't my tips but taken from The Warhammer Forum and user Bugman (who is owner of the Dwarf forum Bugmans Brewery). I also want to say that The Grand Alliance Community, does not take responsibility for anything sold on here. Make sure you have done your homework and followed the tips to help you not get into trouble
