EXPERIMENT: Greenstuff Xeroxing?

I'm pretty new at this whole Green Stuff thing and decided I needed to figure out a way to help myself out a touch with fine details until I get the hang of it.  If you ain't got the skills, steal.

SHOWCASE: Grey Knights Terminators

My first post on H.O.W. way back when this blog started was on this very squad of Terminators.  Needless to say, they went on the back burner for a while.  But they're done now, and as far as I'm concerned, that's glorious.

SHOWCASE: Grey Knights Dreadnought

Feels good to be back in the saddle on my Grey Knights.   First unit to officially get a fork in it is my ForgeWorld Dreadnought.  A long time in the making, but I'm pretty happy with it. Lots of nice big pics after the jump.

EXPERIMENT: Heat weapons

Facing down a horde of little 'Nid buggers?  Orcs got you down? You're gonna want a few flame throwers. We've all seen that discoloration that metal (especially steel) gets from repeated exposure to heat. So far, I've yet to see a good tutorial on how to paint that effect.  I tried a little experiment, and thought it might make a good new segment for H.O.W.  Experiments are good, even if they don't always work out how you planned.

NOTICE: Video tutorial delayed

The promised paint stripping video tutorial will be delayed. I'ts been a while since I've done any video editing, and the post on it is taking a little longer than I anticipated, to insure that's it's the quality you should expect from H.O.W.

I'll post the tutorial next week once it's complete.


SHOWCASE: Custom Canis Wolfborn

A custom Canis Wolfborn, the savage of Fenris, I created using the Wolf Lord kit, and some bits from ebay.

H.O.W. TO: Nemesis Force Weapons in 3 (relatively) easy steps


I recently decided I needed to redo the force weapons on a few of my Grey Knights and thought this was the perfect time to do a quick HOW TO on my method. I've seen many NMM tutorials online over the years and was planning to do the same on these weapons until I thought of another way- an easier way!
