  1. We have a gnk tournament on March the 11th at element games in Stockport and usually 1 event a month
  2. Me too with this, i did the same me too with this
  3. I'm having the same issue just a white screen
  4. I painted up Luke Wedge and Biggs ages ago, the work you've done here on the decals is making doing red 7, 8, 9 and 10 much easier they are great guide for free hand. Thank you muchly.
  5. The next one will be in reverse colours but it's a bit off yet. Imperials are half done.
  6. Hi the method was tiny pilot hole in the end, then 2mm drill up the nacell,measure the length first and mark your drill bit so you know you've gone far enough in(I can't stress how important this is you've never drilled as far as you think you have ) if you haven't gone far enough in the next part will be a pain. Now score the knife repeatedly along the nacelle bars edge till it slices through without pressure. I tried using force first and it twisted the bars more and more and I slipped and cut the bats from an engine. Finally a disclaimer. I am insane, it is not my fault if you bugger up your toys trying this stupid idea. I have a problem and I can't help myself. Have fun and if this is your first time with a pin vice drill wear a steel thimble then your thumb won't resemble a colander like mine does.
  7. I thought I'd put these up here so people outside of the Britain can laugh at insanity.This is what is done so far,oh and there is this. and these the other side of the frigate
  8. It's been a while and these were finished a while ago, but life. Here's a link to the blog the blow by blow isn't that detailed but there is much griping hopefully in an entertaining and unoffensive way if not the F@&%$^^*^*I(&%*%$%$£ you and your parrot. Enjoy. http://spoardicpaint.blogspot.co.uk/2015/03/im-going-blind.html
  9. The Trandoshans are painted actually where painted a couple of weeks ago but I've been arguing with blogger. Here they are http://spoardicpaint.blogspot.co.uk/2015/02/am-goin-untin.html
  10. here are the moggies painted and weathered Trandoshans next http://spoardicpaint.blogspot.co.uk/
  11. Whenever you release a miniature game it's going to get compared to gw. When it comes to this kind of game they set the bar, I also don't agree with the it's a game piece argument have you seen the quality of cthullu wars pieces or Kingdom death the things CMON are supplying, more than that in community and organised play this is a skirmish game not a board game if you are going to embrace that side and the rule system is very good deceptively simple but with a world of possibilities just like x wing, then you have to make minis that live up to that quality.
  12. I just used gw black and white undercoat spray and only light coats if your having problems getting undercoat to adhere try giving them a wash in warm soapy water to remove any lingering release agent from the moulding process. Watch out for bendy bits though as guns and sabers may wilt but you can set them back by dipping in hot water reshaping and dip in cold to set.
  13. Here's the rest of the imperial forces from the box set. http://spoardicpaint.blogspot.co.uk/2015/01/you-dont-know-power-of-dark-side-of.html
  14. Time to paint the officers and the first painting of flesh so far on these figures and this is your warning this blog will contain disparaging comments about FFGs sculpts and figures, if you can't except this move along this is not the blog you're looking for. Okay every body set right then. The hand and facial sculpts on these figures is piss poor, the jedi Diala Passil looks as if she's lost the ends of her fingers in an industrial accident, although this may explain why she doesn't have a lightsaber to begin with(when keep finger tips you can, lightsaber you may have hmm). Gideon Argus does not have a large facial scar, this is a mould line, and nobody has any idea what he's trying to do with his blaster but that has been fixed with a scalpel and hot water as for the hand holding the monoculars apparently kissing your sister is something of an issue in the star wars universe becaues those lower two fingers are one. There are others but those are the ones I had funnies for, so the imperial officers lets see what we have at this end of the gene cup, middle finger on the pointing hand does not exist after the first knuckle, middle finger on the gun hand I have no idea what's going on there, ears previous boxing career? and mold line from the shoulder up the neck that makes him look like plastic surgery. And there are the excuses for my piss poor painting, but seriously I intend to play and rum tournaments for the skirmish side of the game and if I have to £45 pounds for 9 rebel troopers those sculpts better be pretty impressive, cards aside that's £5 a figure which makes GW space marines a bargain. I'm not expecting GW level sculpts but I do want to see basic anatomy. Rant over this bit is repeated in the blog so feel free to ignore and move on to the painting bit. Here's the link. http://spoardicpaint.blogspot.co.uk/2015/01/you-there-do-something.html
