Welcome to another week of Good Reads where I showcase a handful of great blog posts from the last few weeks by other amazing bloggers. Check out the posts, hit up their blogs, and hopefully I can share something you may have missed.
I’ve personally only done small accessories in resin, but I’ve seen plenty of problems with building and painting with it. TheBigGoldFish put together a post on cleaning resin kits to make sure that all your hard work stays put.
Greg is incredible with his Orks. Between painting them with washes and extreme weather of his walkers, his Orks look incredible. He just finished painting an incredible looking unit of Grots – that’s right, Grots – for NovaOpen.
Painting the Realm Gates
The Realm Gates are an iconic part of the new Age of Sigmar and some great looking scenery pieces to fight over. Tyler M. of Mengel Miniatures put together a great tutorial on how he painted his up. It is fairly quick but looks great.
Magnetising the Stormhawk
The new Stormhawk is a fantastic addition to the Space Marine flyers, adding that hard and fast flyer to their fleet. Corrm from St. Andrews Wargaming wrote up how he added magnets to the weapons and how his thoughts on the new flyer with the updated flyer rules.
Using the Gemstone Paints
The new Gemstone Paints from Games Workshop are a nice addition to make painting all those gems and soul stones much easier. While their “just paint this over silver” approach look OK, Scott shows that combining the new paints with a few pre-shaded layers, the finished gem looks fantastic.
