Sorry for the not getting anything done guys. Been busy and stressed out lately. Also I need some paints for my Space Marine captain, which I need to order still. Man I wish a local retailer carried Reaper paints.


But anyroad, I'm going to work on basing the space marines I do have.. just one question... should I dull coat before or after I base them?

I prefer to do it after, as it helps the white glue typically used for basing to remain adhered to everything. However if you're using a lot of flock, it's worth testing one model before spraying all of them... some spray varnishes tend to look strange on flock, almost snowy.

Not much to report, yesterday I worked on basing my Space marines. I'm doing crystals like from an old MWG video tutorial. I haven't decided on a colour yet though... I was going to do green, but I was afraid that might come off as too Necronish.

Today I just primed some stuff.

A light box. >_< And the cord came finally. My sister's first words were ' Oh good, I was starting to think it was a scam.'

Ooooo, dwarfs look good. I really like the purple shields.

You don't need a lightbox! Just use a bent piece of paper when taking pics. That's how I do it anyway...

So... not much to report today. Working on the crystals for my Space Marine bases.... but I'm having a heck of a time trying to decide a colour. I've narrowed it down to three

Blue:

Green:

And Red

Red and blue didn't turn out as well as I liked, so I kinda like the green the most but... I'm worried it comes off as Necron crystals. What do you guys think?
