Warbases Barn Houses

Bild
Hey everybody!

Today I used my free time to complete the two barn houses from Warbases that I've ordered some weeks ago. The walls are painted with thick white arcryllic paint and drybrushed afterwards. The roof of the small barn is covered with scratchbuilt shingles, while the L-shaped one got a thatched roof.

I'm quite satisfied with the way they turned out and probably will order some more buildings from Warbases.

Cheers,
Thomas

Hallo zusammen!

Ich hab meine freie Zeit heute mal dazu genutzt, die beiden Farmgebäude von Warbases fertig zu machen. Die Wände der beiden Häuser sind mit dicker weißer Acrylfarbe bestrichen und wurden danach trockengebürstet. Das Dach des kleinen Schuppens habe ich mit selbstgebauten Dachziegeln versehen und den großen Schuppen habe ich mit selbstgebautem Reet bedeckt.

Ich bin ganz zufrieden mit dem Ergebnis und werde sicherlich noch weitere Modelle bei Warbases bestellen!

Gruß,

Thomas

Halt! Time to conglomerate ...

The man cave - last resort of the Wargamer. But what is this? Empty blisters laying around, a pile of dripper bottles next to them - the super glue should be lying anywhere between those things. Half painted miniatures are massed-together on the other side of the desk. And in the center of this mess, there is a small gap that allows one to reach the keyboard or even put down a small dish. 
Yes you get it, my man cave was in a hair-raising condition! Time for a hobby-halt and for restructuring.
At first, everything must get out of the way, all the empty blister packs are thrown away and the rest is removed out of the way. Once that's done, the room itself gets the desperately needed clean-up and all of the hobby materials are put away properly.
Okay, now everything is fine, but I need something that keeps me away from escalating again in the future and keep everything in order, so I ordered a Paintstation from Warlord Games and gave myself the rule only to work on one Project / Unit a…

Bolt Action - Chaos

I've been waiting for my preordered rulebook for quite some weeks. Warlord Games said, it would be shipped by the end of July. But then, something went terribly wrong ...

I've recieved this email from Warlord Games just a few minutes ago:


Bolt Action pre-orders updateGetting your pre-order copy of Bolt Action into your hands has proven to be far more difficult then we anticipated, this email is to update you on why it has happened, what is happening right now and to let you know what we are doing to make it happen ASAP.
The original release date for the book was July. Both ourselves and Osprey planned for that and organised our attendance at Historicon and Gen-Con based on that date. However, as is often the way with publishing the book was delayed – first to August and then ultimately to September.
This left the Historicon and Gen-Con situations to resolve. Osprey decided to make sure copies were available to buy at these conventions. We decided that rather than sell tho…
