    Don't bother with the "insert other media" button. Buttons are generally just shortcuts that don't work properly. You just find the actual link for the image (the one that ends in .jpg or .png or whatever) and paste that into the post. Like this:

    https://www.beastsofwar.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/03/P1020127.jpg
    Now, when I posted this link it posted the image directly, saying it had automatically embedded the link. I had to disable that feature to make it display as a link.
    If, for whatever reason, the forum software won't display the link as an image, you can force it to do so by placing the image tags before and after the link, those tags being [ img ] and [ /img ] respectively (but with the spaces removed, obviously). And it should display the image then, like this:


    The easiest way to find the image URL (the one that ends in the image extension, .jpg or .png or whatever) is to right click on the image you want, and select 'open image in new tab'. If a website offers you a "select this option to post to another forum" or whatever, don't bother with it because half the time they add in formatting or stuff with conflicts with the forum software. You're better just doing it manually.

    Hey guys, 
     
    As much for my own records, I'm going to be recording my painting progress here. For those hoping to find anything rebel related, be prepared for bitter disappointment. 
    Ok, first storm trooper squad. Turned out ok for a first attempt and took around 4 hours for the squad. I'm confident that'll be down to 3 hours by squad 3 and beyond, which is a solid evenings painting per unit - absolutely fine. These model, save a few centrepieces, will be getting the tabletop standard and nothing more.

    as for the paint guide, I'm mostly using Vallejo model colours (v) with a bit of citadel (c)
    Armour -
    Abadon black base (c)
    heavy dry brush - German grey (v)
    light dry brush - founation white (v)
    light dry brush - foundation white (v)
    (2 coats should be sufficient) 
    layer - Gloss white (v) (hitting the panels, tidying up armour plates ect
    2 X gloss varnish
    weapons
    Abadon black base (c)
    highlight - grey green (v)
    highlight - medium sea gray (v)
    I then added a gentle highlight to the extremities of the weapon with metal medium (v). This adds shine without much colour, making your highlights pop and shimmer giving the impression of black metal. 
    matt varnish. 
     
    for the other black areas, I added a first highlight of German grey and did not add the metal medium highlight, making these areas look flatter than the weapons for contrast. 
     
    nice and easy. Hope you enjoy. If people want specifics just ask! 
     
    EDIT: these models are not yet glued together, if anyone is concerned some of the joints look wonky!
