I just got round to trying the newish GW technical paint for verdigris. Nihilakx (or something) oxide. That stuff is awesome. I'm sure there are other, better, ways to do it but this stuff is fast, a thick wash like substance and it dries matte. Works very quickly and great for what I was trying to achieve on my OGAM Greek undead. What,you thought I was actually painting GW models with them?  :D

Haarlem is not quite 'up the road' lol  I'm not sure about Zuid, but the Rokin was the only one in the Centrum that I knew of.  Now there's a woman's clothing store there and the Imperial Eagles look somewhat out of place...or very chic...

I've posted this link before, but it's worth mentioning again

http://www.awesomepaintjob.com/index.cfm/resources.recipes

has instructions for making custom washes

Correct me if I am wrong but those are the washes that Secret Weapon now produces.

New knight fluff books out. Here's what one says  lol
Quote
The Imperial Knight Companion is packed with everything you need to know about the rich and fascinating history of the Imperial Knights. From examples of how Knight heraldry is created and changes over time to full colour illustrations of Imperial, Adeptus Mechanicus and Freeblade Knight colour schemes.

This 144 page large hardback is a true collectors companion. Beautifully written and stunningly presented you will find yourself pouring over its pages time and time again. Prepare to be inspired.

Warning: exposure to this book may result in the overwhelming desire to collect, build and paint many Knights! 


Love that last line!

I wouldn't mind having a look at that book. (I already have the Uniforms and Heraldry books for Empire and Skaven. :? ) I get that feeling about a lot of GW products. But I know this one'll end the same way - one look at the price-tag...

Yeah, it turns out, down her in NZ, to be about a dollar a page. Jeepers if very book cost that much I would only be reading picture books or make sure all the books I bought were just on one giant massively long scroll.

Good news! Check the GW website, apparently they closed the Rokin store before opening two new stores in Amsterdam! :)

Oh sweet!  I really only buy paint from them, but I'm getting low on primer :D  Jammer on the Rokin shop, it was on the main drag and an easy walk from work...

There is an interesting article in the latest Wargames soldiers and strategy about how the recent surge in skirmish games is a reaction to the GW policy of starter sets and everything in one box.

There is some good insight into people wanting to play with less than 30 figures on the saves time/quick games/ less to paint argument with wargames time competing with computer games and a lot of
"instant fix" stuff these days.

It is quite positive about GW saying without a lot of youngsters getting the initial taste the industry would be worse off.

Not sure that will ring true soon though. My FLGS sells little GW while churning tons of blot action and the various mantic stuff.

Saw these today. Revamped Imperial Guard or something like that:

[MOD: Removed scans of unreleased White Dwarf's pages. GW are notorious in slapping C&Ds on sites showing these, and in Germany, this can get expensive.

Google for "Militarum Tempestus" and "Taurox Prime" if you want to see pics.]


The figures seem nice and the vehicle, if "cleaned" of all skulls and similar, would be a great all-terrain vehicle for new space colonies  ;D

Seems that in terms of vehiicles they went from the sublime to the ridiculous with their last two releases.
