Little review: white undercoat

Army Painter Matt White and Citadel Corax White:

In the past I used Skull White from Citadel. Because I use the varnish from Army Painter (Anti Shine Matt Varnish), I've given the primer from Army Painter a chance.

Painting Challenge 2016

Our third Annual Painting Challenge.

2016 Category: Lord of the Rings / The Hobbit Female Character
  • no monsters like fe Shelob
  • only use the original base (or same size)
  • no diorama

Everybody who likes to paint, pick up your brushes and paint together with us in this painting challenge. We like to see some WIP photos so we can learn from each other and give each other advice. This is not only a painting challenge but also a painting community. And if you’re not a Lord of the Rings / The Hobbit player/collector/painter, just join us.
And for Lord of the Rings / The Hobbit player/collector/painter, certainly join us so it could become the greatest Lord of the Rings / The Hobbit painting Challenge.

So, we call on everyone to get involved. It does not matter how long you've been working on the hobby. Besides it's fun to join and you can learn a lot from it. And of course we do it for the honor ;-)

Finally on March 31 2016,  your model must be submitted.

In April 2016 is the voting. There'll be a jury:

  • points on 70 for painting
  • points on 20 for base
  • points on 10 for creativity

The one with the best score out of 100 will get gold, the second silver and the third bronze.

Please join our community for the full rules and participation: '2016 FotM' Painting Challenge'

Unboxing and review: Vallejo Paint stand

Last week I bought the Vallejo Paint stand (1 front and 2 corners). I personally like that everything is organized and I like the Vallejo product range, so I looked forward to the Paint stand.

Suns of Durin and some woses.

Hi, it has been a while since I last posted. But I made some progress on the suns of Durin.
Last tournament I picked up some grimhammers as a price. I always loved the models, to my opinion some of the best sculpted plastics in the entire range.

So I painted the first batch.
