If you are the sort of person that enjoys rude humour, perhaps you have played Cards against Humanity and thought to yourself “My ability to describe things is rubbish I want pictures to make sure there is no misunderstanding about what I really mean”, perhaps you are just a fan of the comic series.

Visit the kickstarter and consider pledging to this campaign. I know I will be.

New Battlefleet Gothic: Armada Narrative Trailer

Today Focus Home Interactive released a new narrative trailer to launch their pre-orders of the game and it looks awesome.

Also until Friday, 29 January 2016, 18:00 GMT they Games Workshop are running their midweek madness sale which is offing 10% off the retail price of this game and upto 90% off some of their other titles, so it is well worth a look.

GW Advent Calendar Day 15 – Stubble and Beards

Warhammer TV is the gift that keeps on giving, loving the tutorials, a new one every day and they are clear and easy to understand, perfect for beginners.

If you liked this check out Lester Bursley’s video on “How to paint Space Marine Faces and Stubble”. It goes more into painting the skin on the model, but interestingly the stubble effect he uses is very simular to the one in the Games Workshop video.

Excellent tutorials – Games Workshop Advent Calendar

I have been following the Games Workshop Advent Calendar recently, and below are 2 more very useful tutorials I wish I had known when I started painting.

First off, we have day 4, the Power & Nemesis Force Weapons tutorial.

For the last few years I have been almost doing this exactly, with the minor change that the initial colour coat and transitions were done with an airbrush. The effect shown in the video is very good and certainly above the standard table top quality.

The second tutorial is the Day 11 – Volcanic base tutorial.

This is another clever painting tutorial, this time focusing on terrain. It is very quick to do and I quite like the resulting effect, I think I might try something similar on my own Chaos sorcerer.
