If you asked me what I thought of the year 2020, I’d have to say it was a fantastic year for my hobbies… everything else aside. True, I didn’t get in as many games as I would have liked. Also true, I didn’t get to have as many good times with friends around the gaming table as in previous years. With the gaming postponed I used my extra time and found plenty of time for (the eventual…) betterment of my future-timey-time games.Continue reading
Shesh, time sure flies when you are having fun. Two whole months since part 3 of the series and we are finally back with the promised part 4!
Can Contrast Paints help with something Kris has always found intimidating, painting a primarily white colour scheme.
Before paint even touches your miniature, chances are good that you’ll need to do some assembly first, even if that just means attaching a single-part model to its base. Assembly can be a bit of an overlooked step, but it’s the foundation for everything you’ll do afterwards and it’s important to make sure you have the right tools for the job at hand. This is certainly true for the glue that will hold your models together – each type works in particular ways and using the wrong glue for the material you’re working with is a recipe for problems. Here, we’re going to go over the different glues that we sell here at Sentry Box for building your miniatures and models, to help you select the right one for your project. While there are many available, they fit into a couple broad categories. Let’s dive in!
I’ve mentioned before how Necromunda is a game for older, more experienced gamers. Well, if you are as old as me then you are very much excited about how the hobby (and your favourite game: Necromunda…) has turned out…yet, you are also very much driven to have the things you never had or always wished you did.
One of the words that can be used to describe what that is is ‘Nostalgia’…we’ll leave those other words out for just now…Continue reading
Following on from Howard’s First Thoughts on Warlord Game’s new Victory at Sea, we have Howard walking us through how he painted up the stores Demo Ships.
In Part 1 of our Elder Scrolls: Call to Arms review, we looked at the Core Rules Box but before we get into the meat of the game it was time to open one of the Boxes and look at some of the miniatures!
In Part 2 of our look at GW Contrast Paints, we looked at using them on the WizKids PrePrimed Models, and for this one, we are going to be looking at using them to supplement a more traditional painting style.
This month I (could have…) had a good shot at finishing up all the little projects from The Book Of Peril. Unfortunately, while doing these, I had a great idea for a really large project…so, this article marks the ‘almost finished’ point and will also begin a massive build that will be revealed in an article or two. What does it all mean? The Book Of Peril is hobby value. Buy it!
Part 6 of 6 – Buildings & Fortifications
At last, I’m in the home stretch. With all the figures painted along with the half-track, I have the buildings from the starter set to finish off and some fortifications for scenery.
I started with the farm buildings and the assembly was straightforward. These buildings are a little finicky to put together. Not difficult, but the fit won’t be perfect. I didn’t sweat it for these, and once the paint is on most folks won’t notice little gaps etc.
