Might not be doing much painting tonite, I have a friend coming over for a game and likely will involve copious amounts of beer. But, it may also make a great battle report!

Beer and gaming, only thing better is rum, wings and gaming.

I have Sailor Jerry, no wings though. That might be asking for trouble, too ;)

I need some opinions. I wanted to put on armor chipping, but I don't think my colors are working out.


Image


I used Scorched Brown and highlighted Rotting Flesh, and the highlight just blended into the armor. So I used a light grey instead, and now it looks like bad camo.

Suggestions?

Honestly can't really tell from the photo what's going on. I think the chipping might be difficult given the bio-organic nature of Nurgle-types... so sadly, I don't have any useful input :P

Sorry about the pics, it's my phone I'll try and get some better ones.

Tonite, I built a Doomwheel ;) I might play Fantasy on Tuesday, so I want to get more Skaven fun stuff done.

Yay rats! I demand pics. not camera phone pics, but real ones. :P So glad you decided to pick up the vermin again, but what do your Death Guard think about this? I'd keep the skaven away from them. you never know what kind of pesticides that DG have.

All right Terrain and Basing dudes and dudettes, I have a question. I want to make my army look like it's coming from deep, dark caves. I have a bunch of coarse cinder ballast...but I don't want to stop there!

Does anyone have any ideas? Examples of subterranean basing?

Corkplate with rock spires coming from the base would look somewhat like that since caves are filled with them, especially the deeper you go in the ground. paint it with a dark, almost black grey/brown and I think that would look good.
