Paint and paints

I've had a scout about on the GW website and looked at their paint conversion chart. It seems that there is a match for mechrite red (according to the chart) but I'm going to have to go in to a store to take a closer look as the swatch that is shown on the website looks nothing like. In fact it looks  blue! (not true, just a silly joke).

Time for some jazz flute.

I'd also agree with your comments about the sheer number of paints available now - the range is huge. If you follow the suggested painting recipes then you would need around 4pots of paint for every colour you put on a mini. Wowee!

San Diego... Nobody knows the true meaning of its name.

Going to bed now, but will try to paint some minis this week - it's time to finish off some Khorne dogs.

Back to Valhalla!

It's been over a year since this blog last saw any action (and since my Guard saw any painting action) but hopefully it's all about to start up again as the Valhallan's prepare themselves for another Tyrannid invasion... To start things off I'm tackling the vehicles with the idea that they'll be relatively quick to paint and will have a good impact on the look of the army (i.e. the time to result ratio will be high).

So, the tasks for the coming weeks are:

(1) Build demolisher tank
(2) Finish painting Griffon Mortar tank
(3) Paint 3 Chimeras and the demolisher (in one big go)

Hopefully I'll have something to show pretty soon.
