Hey Everyone. It's been a crazy month at EZPainter with the new book coming out. It doesn't mean however that i haven't found time ot paint. In fact i had the chance to paint one of the commissions i have been after for a long time! I am proud to present my take on the Imperial assault box. A few pointers, i found the bases to be much more textured than i thought, making for a flat finish very hard, i also found that the plastic doesn't hold paint too well, but appropriate varnishing sorted that.
If you are using the blog to track GGA then you will be happy to know that there is two great documents on the way for GGA. Firstly we have this spiffing Quick play sheet, it will be £3 on the site and is a must have for quicker and easier game play of the system.
Secondly we have this awesome collaboration file created by Harley Graves for Roman shields in four unique and beautiful shades.
Lastly we have another great file from Harley in the form of these really special "unit cards" that help you to keep track of things in your army (including HP trackers on each card) so that you don't have to litter your battlefield with markers and counters now. Very simple and very fun.
Keep your eyes open on here and on Wargames Vault. If you haven't already grabbed your copy, get one here.
Every once in a while you paint something you haven't really painted before. Recently i picked up the TMNT hero clix starter set for myself. I love the turtles and i was very excited about playing but very deflated with the usual sweat shop paint jobs. I set about painting my own and picked a slightly cartooney style (late 90's) with garish green and bright colors.
Aftewards i put a post up about my repaint and asked if anyone wanted any wor done on their own turts, i got one response promptly, and received the mini's a few days later! Check out these other Clix repaints i have done at LV 2 in the style of the old Turtles.
Finishing ww2 Germans
Last night i put the finishing touches on these beautiful Bolt Action Germans. I have really enjoyed painting these little guys and sometimes it's hard to let a commission go, this is one of them! I think i jsut had a lot of fun painting the Cammo. As you can see below the process of the Cammo is slightly more detailed than most Level 1 paint jobs, and i think that is what makes it so fun.
New ww2 Promo
Last night thanks to our wonderful Kickstarter i managed t get GGA live on Wargames vault and the EZPainter website. You can grab both of the current books in the system for £10 and save £4 off the PDF prices. Click the link below to go to the product.
Thought i would share some of the pics of the WW2 test models i did with late war German cammo. Should be finishing this commission soon.
Will keep y'all updated.
Today i received my current (rather large) German commission. Second lot of Germans in a year, and i can't wait. I love painting Germans from WW2, I don't really know why but i think it has something to do with the dark uniforms and the gritty looks on the miniatures.
With the Kickstarter doing so well i am thinking long and hard about what comes next from the adventure that is GGA.
I know that the Roman empire is the next logical step (as we can cover a lot there) but i am eager to get this "The Tribes" book out. As i can cover Ghauls, Picts, Britons and Celts and theyre very exciting, they also kind of tie everything together in my mind, being that the ancient Tribes spread far and wide, touching upon almost everyones history at some point!
So here are some "preview images" And i hope to hear from people on what they want covered in future source books.
