If you haven’t seen it yet, it’s quite impressive that someone actually built a real, working chainsword. Check it out.
All is not yet dust…
Warhammer TV’s latest announcement of Burning of Prospero boxed set, and it looks epic.
The Tau expansion into the Damocles sector has arrived in Battlefleet Gothic: Armada and it looks amazing!. I love the inclusion of auxiliary races that the Tau are famous for.
For the Greater Good!
From the creators of Cyanide & Happiness comes a card game where players compete to finish an awful comic strip.
“If you like Cyanide and Happiness, youu will love this game. It gives you the feeling of being one of the creators without the burden of actually having to be funny yourself.”

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.
Recently Darkly on the Tau Empire Community group on Facebook released images of his recent converion painted up the Tau XV88 stormsurge with arms, see below (which personally I think it should always have had).
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.
Today Game Workshop treated us to a cool tutorial on how to create a marble effect on a piece of terrain.
Another excellent video is, the How to paint Marble tutorial by Iciban Painting Studios
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.
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.
Today’s advent calendar is a nice tutorial on how to paint the skin of the Tau.
Personally I go for Lothern Blue followed by Teclis Blue and then finally Etherium Blue, but the principle is the same.
