On hiatus

Owing to some personal stuff I’m putting Brush 4 Brush on hiatus until the new year at least. Don’t worry it’ll be back with new and hopefully regular content.

How to Extend the Life of Pricey Hobby Paints

This is something I have done.

Has Games Workshop/Citadel Miniatures finally come to their senses and started releasing paints in convenient, air-tight dropper bottles? Hardly. But frustrated with Games Workshop bottles’ notorious habit of drying up long before the paint is gone, a hobbyist took matters into his own hands. Using dropper bottles found on eBay, he transferred his paints, and even their clear-printed labels, to bottles that will surely be kinder to his significant investment in high-priced hobby paints.

A little yellow demon

I found a Heresy miniatures Minor Fallen One in the bitzbox. It took about 3 hours from start to finish, minimal mould lines ( 2, 1 on the scythe and 1 on the sword which I didn’t use) quality control that puts the “big boys” to shame.



Paints used:
Tamiya grey surface primer
Molotow one4all yellow (airbrushed)
GW Rakarth flesh
Sepia wash
GW Rhinos hide
Army painter flesh
Blue wash

Not the best pics I know but the ideas there.

Things! Excitement! Content!

Yes really content (ok maybe not excitement), in between the constant battle against “real-life” I managed to get in some painting time. I’ve base coated about 500 points(I think) of Imperial Fists , 25ish points of Cygnar and a few other random pieces. Here’s a teaser for the Imperial FIsts
