Life is starting to settle back down, which means I have started catching up on my blog article back log. This week brings a great collection from around the interwebs for your viewing pleasure.
So lately I’ve been really digging the INQ28 world, not so much for the Blanchian scary/odd art, but for the crazy and awesome conversion people are using to make their war bands. Wilhelm is another new addition to my personal blog roll and his recent update on his warband has some great work in it – I especially liked this Inquisitor.
Marble is one of those cool stone looks that really fits well with the Grim Dark, Gothic look, but is really hard to pull off. Apologist from Death of a Rubricist put together a nice tutorial for all of us to make our own marble additions. He even gets bonus points for writing in imperial data slate style!
This last month has been a flurry of new releases that have had the community chatting loudly, but one release that seems to have been fairly quiet on was the XL Marine transfer sheets. Stahly over on Tale of Painters posted a nice review of the Ultramarines sheet, and while most of the sheets would be useless for my Mentors, there are a lot of create pieces in there for any marine player.
I recently was drawing up designs for a fold-able photo booth made of wood and metal hinges when I saw Greggle’s review of the Foldio2. It has all the right things: large enough to fit his Stompa, folds into a compact square, and has lots of LED lighting. As soon as they start shipping the non-Kickstarter versions I will be picking one up.
Rory has been building up his Thousand Sons army and decided to build some custom bases for his dust suites. The bases also help tell his story of the army raising up through the ground on an alien planet. Oh, and a he has a bonus look at one of the crazy detailed Gundum kits he built.
Old School Gaming celebrated his birthday by creating a Jurassic themed Death World scenario. Between the idea of dinos eating your space marines or training them to eat the other guys, he put some great thought into this fun game.
They guys at Massive Voodoo are some amazing artists, and when they do a tutorial it is well worth checking out their process. Raffa posted one a while back on this amazing dwarf warrior that has epic level of detailing. If nothing else, checkout how he did the shield.
Until next time, keep on blogging, hobbying, and creating awesome.
