All's quiet on the hobby front

Nope, I haven't made it to the FLGS to pick up my copy of the Xenos 2 index, nor did we make it to game night last weekend. Actually, all I've managed hobby-wise is to get some paint on ol' Rokkit Pistols from my last post.

You can also see a WIP Rainbow Warriors' Scout Sgt..

About the only thing of note thus far on this mini is the space marine helm on his base is conspicuously the same color as those of the Lions of Harlech...

S'alright, you want some, we can arrange a game.

Watch out Cheef, those Lions are total bastards! ;)

Still gotta get Xenos 2, but just going from the leaked images, I'm thinking I can muster about 1000 points.

Kushial said...

1000 Points? Let me see what kind of list I can come up with and we'll see about when we can do it. I've got Sat July 1st off work if that works for you.

Da Masta Cheef said...

Yeah that might work.

Good day sir. I was just looking at your storm wardens our had a couple years back and I really like the color scheme. Would you happen to remember what paints you used? - - Jon

Thank you! & I do actually:

Boltgun metal and Hawk Turquoise, slathered with a (usually) heavy coat of Army painter Strong tone, and then a light dry brushing or bleached bone for a bit more grime. The leather pouches and such, whichever brown you prefer and the green helmet stripes? Probably not relevant, but I'm thinking Emerald green.

I'm fairly certain that all of those GW colors have been discontinued, but there are conversion charts available with current GW colors, Vallejo, etc.

Coat d'arms also makes a lot of the old/original GW colors, albeit with different names, but also have color matching charts. Hasslefree Miniatures carries 'em, as I'm sure do others.

Is that rokkit orc dressed as an ultramarine ?

Da Masta Cheef said...

Look closer, that's former Crimson Fists armor bits!
