Welcome in 2018

So this is the first post in 2018. The year 2017 wasn’t the best one for my Blog and hobby as I didn’t have as much time as the years before for painting , modeling and gaming. I could only attend the convention in Antwerp because of time constrains. I hope this will be better again in 2018. The hotel for Salute in London is already booked.

Now the first project this year to be started new is a Ork Goff Rock band for my Ork Warhammer 40000 army. I got the old metal citadel miniatures for x mas from my son:

They will get a moving stage in the form of a looted Leman Russ tank . This will be part of the 2018 build something contest over on Lead Adventure Forum. You can follow that contest here.

I will post pictures of the build here ,too.

Happy Christmas and a prosperous new year

I wish you all a very Happy Christmas and a happy new year!

Flag Tutorial: Making Cloth Flags

I found this tutorial on the unlucky General blog very interesting indeed!

Opening

“I take a fair bit of effort to create my own flags. I see many people’s armies and units whose flags are an afterthought, an inconvenience or a nuisance step in the process to paint up a unit of toy soldiers and get them on that table. I get it completely. Many of us probably think it’s too fiddly or that we feel unable to compete with the level of detail commercially produced flags can achieve through the printing process. In many ways this is neither wrong nor unreasonable but I’d like to make the case for making your own flags and provide a crude how-to for what I am doing these days.” The Unlucky General.
