Vallejo - GW texture paste comparisons
Lord Raven 19 posted a topic in + GENERAL PCA QUESTIONS +My pot of Armageddon dust is running low and I have heard that vallejo texture pastes are much better value for money. Does anyone know which one is most similar in texture and colour to Armageddon dust (which is very similar to zandri dust btw), or have a conversion chart between the two brands that includes texture pastes? Thanks.
Imperial Fists and Contrast paints
Canadian_F_H posted a topic in + IMPERIAL FISTS +Since i occasionally paint a fist or 2 and i havent seen a decent topic on the matter i figured this is the best place to ask. 1st it seams the only 2 contrast yellows are iyanden and nazdreg. Unfortunatly named for xenos but oh well. Which of these do you think is best for Imperial Fists? Suggestions for Crimson Fists welcome also. And feel free for any other successors, especially major/common ones, because that might help somebody out.
TheFreshMemes posted a topic in + AMICUS AEDES +Hi! I'm new to the Warhammer scene and so I don't have any models yet but plan to get some soon. In the meantime I've come across a primaris marine paint planner while looking at color schemes for my army and wanted to play around with it. I'm using a Chromebook so I can't use MS Paint and I'm having trouble finding good painters/editing software for Chrome. If there are any suggestions please let me know
H&H! (aka Hi & Happy New Year!)
Pippolele posted a topic in + INTRODUCE YOURSELF +Hi! (we've got this out of the way to start with!) and Happy New Year! (Kind of late into the month but this is the first post of the year in this subforum) Long time Lurker decided to join the community to open a PLOG to keep the motivation going to assemble and paint 2500 points of Blood/Dark Angels! I started collecting Warhammer in 3rd edition but never played much. Recently decided to strip down the thick paint from all of my space marines and reassemble/paint them into something nice! I'll share more in my plog. Speaking of which: in which sub-forum should I create it? Happy Gaming!
The work station and tools of the trade
Canadian_F_H posted a topic in + WORKS IN PROGRESS +My workstation itself is a work in progress. I've spent a bit of time here and there on it, especially lately. I felt I would share it. Starting today with the hobby/paint/tool box I started to set up yesterday. I needed my paint and hobby tools to be portable. To be able to be stowed relatively quickly and easily and be highly accessible. I can close up this box and clear the bench of basically all the hobby tools and paint in one go. I can bring the whole lot to a shop or a friend's house or my brother's. Which is what drove me to this since I'm heading there tomorrow. Dedicating an afternoon to painting with my brother who has been my on and off hobby buddy for 21 years (YIKES!) Trying to keep the ball rolling and make progress and keep each other focused and motivated. The box was surprisingly inexpensive BTW. Tho I definitely have plans to secure the GW paint and the tools and brushes better. What do y'all think? What are y'all set ups?

BetterOffShred posted a topic in + GREY KNIGHTS +Well in Dex's thread I mentioned my running Dread knight so I got him out and took a couple pics of the WIP. As I get the rest out there will be more pics so I just started here. This guy is like 60% complete. http://imgur.com/gallery/o9Gbwf0
Bronze Spray Paint for Minotaurs
Dom_ posted a topic in + GENERAL PCA QUESTIONS +Hey all, Starting a small Minotaurs project and wanted to know if anyone knew of a spray that was close to GW's Screaming Bell paint. My Google searches haven't turned up anything.
In the same vein as my Molotow Liquid Chrome experiments, I will be doing the same for this product and will post the results here. My subjects will be Dark Eldar Kabalites. http://www.greenstuffworld.com/en/chameleon-acrylic-paints/667-colorshift-chameleon-acrylic-paint-set-1.html https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1sNGIrPmo2U
Alternative paint scheme for the Mutalith Vortex Beast
MoGuy posted a topic in + THOUSAND SONS +With our codex soon coming out I purchased the Vortex Beast. However, I dislike GW's chosen paintscheme and I don't want to paint it Thousand Sons Blue like the rest of my army. Maybe you have some advice or inspiration to share? How would you paint this beast?
Vertical Paint Pot Holder
sbarnby71 posted a topic in + GENERAL PCA QUESTIONS +Hey folks, Does anyone know where I can get a Vertical Paint Pot holder for GW paints in the UK (something a bit like a spice rack)? All the ones I can find are multi-tiered (like 3 or more deep - not high), I want just a single row of pots and then another row of the same above, etc. Thanks
The great bell tolls for my Ceramite White pot, and unfortunately someone forgot what white means when they made the replacement Corax White I use it quite a bit across armies to get a white going over any colour and it save me a lot of time, and I get decent results with it - such that I didn't replace my layer white when that died ages ago... Trying to find another range that has a base/foundation white hasn't got very far as all I get back are primers and the like which isn't quite what I'm looking for, or I'm not sure if it is. Does anyone know of a white that can achieve the same coverage?
Raptors building and painting log.
Sergeant_Angle posted a topic in + WORKS IN PROGRESS +I started this build log in the Ravenguard section but figured it would be more appropriate to post here. I've dabbled in 40k since the start of 5th edition when I got my very first set, Assault on Blackreach. I was pretty young back then and over the next couple of years I built a modest space marine army and a small Sisters of Battle army (all that metal back then...) After a few years I sold all those models as they were poorly built and painted by me. Since then I started building a new army around 7th edition and now have a sizeable marine army again. Although I never played 8th I did get some Primaris models around the time Dark Imperium released. Then I got rather disillusioned with the hobby as medical issues meant that I have trouble with my hands and painting is very hard for me. SO I ended up putting my army in storage unpainted. With 9th here I've got excited again and have decided to push on and try my best anyway as the boys in green deserve to be fielded in full colour. So I haven't painted many yet but I will share what I have done so far. My Raptors I've decided to go for a pretty dirty look, like they've been fighting in a jungle for a while. Please let me know what you think. Here is my conversion WIP for Lias Issodon: The bolter is a conversion I made by chopping the upper receiver off a normal gun and attaching a new one from a sniper (an Anvil industries part i think) WIP scout snipers: I did a smilar thing with some of their guns and gave them gas masks to give off a special forces vibe. WIP tactical marines: I wanted to try and get as many scoped bolters as I could in their hands. Almost complete Las/Plas razorback: This conversion uses plasma cannons (I know the rules are plasma rifle) because i think it fits a vehicle better. Lastly a quick test for plasma as I want to paint some hellblasters after I finish these units. UPDATE 1 So for my first update I feel that I have been quite productive (despite hand pain). I've managed to paint a full unit for the first time in years, I'm quite pleased with them. Moving forward I'm torn between: Another tactical squad Or some Hellblasters I think I'm leaning towards doing the hellblasters as painting another 10 tactical marines might feel monotonous. Onto a modelling project. I'm just playing with a Librarian from the Dark Vengeance box. Does anyone have advice on the best way to remove all that DA iconography?
