Hi everyone, it's been a really long time since I last posted! I've just started my research for my thesis, so hobby time recently has been very limited! I did manage to start painting another 5 Brutes though to add to my already completed ones to make a squad of 10! I've batch painted all of the base colours and will go on to shading next.

Look at how dark and dingy my paint area is. The other day on my Facebook account, I asked everyone what lighting they use to paint to. The resounding answer was daylight bulbs. I was getting examples ranging from £20 to £105 in the comments. After a recommendation that Hobbycraft (a chain of UK craft stores) carries a range of daylight lamps I thought I'd pop along to my local store and see what they had. Check out what I found after the jump.      

Hey there, an update of the second batch of my Dark Reapers. Another Reaper and the Exarch. The Exarch has a different helmet design with a longer top-knot, so I added a turquoise to blue gradient  as on my Avatar (dip-dye). I can't wait to get this unit finished this week, so stay tuned. What do you think?

I'm cranking along on the Primal Kings Stormhost project. I'm adding Judicators to my small fledging  force. Batch painting is well underway and I'm working on these in pieces. I find it easier to have the arms, torsos and legs separate. These judicators are so much better than the push fit Liberators. My paint scheme benefits from undercoating some pieces white and some pieces black so keeping the parts separate is a good idea. You can't keep the parts separate on the push fit models. Really enjoying these. Hoping to make good progress on these next week.
