Can't wait for my order of spray primer and wet palette to arrive.


What wet palette did you go for? I've just started painting my 40K minis again and went for the Redgrass Games palette.

I just use a pad of tear-off silicone sheets. Except I've been using the top sheet for the last 10 years.

Edit: I guess that's just a normal pallet, but the silicone helps.

Just saw this and you can make one as well: https://makezine.com/2018/04/03/how-to- ... -painting/

For thicker oil paintings on canvas etc I use a glazed china dish.

If you want to keep big blobs of paint wet, you can just wrap them in cling film (with the paint in the recesses obviously).

Ordered an Army Painer wet palette. I'll let you know what I make of it when it finally turns up.

I did consider making my own, but It was only £16, and I was ordering other bits anyway, and figured it'd definitely be better than any homemade attempt.

If you are not spending all your money, you are doing it wrong. Right?

I still use a roll of Bacofoil grease-proof paper for finishing T-shirt transfers on heatpress or I can buy a pack of 1000 sheets for like £70, figures. Sometimes these things make sense, sometimes they don't. Yet I use a £1,200 machine to cut them out.

(I use heavy duty woven silicone sheet for multiple uses actually, but sometimes the polymer fuse melts to it and that's bad because you'll get the previous image ghosted over the next one.)

For my painting handle I also still use a champagne cork with bluetack on the top and 4 push pins. :lol:

My favourite brush is a Revel red squirrel hair from 1996 or something. I've wrapped adhesive aluminium foil tape around the ferrule because it's snapped off, and microporous tape around the middle for a grip. Am I doing it right.

I'd heard the Necrons were going to be the main threat of the next stage of the 40k Lore.

As if things weren't bad enough with the Tyranids swarming across the Galaxy and the Emperor of Mankind dying due to the Golden Throne failing.

Given that the box instructions for the paint scheme are super simplistic, (the easy to paint set just has you paint the entire base in dark brown Rhinox Hide,) I'm pleased with how this turned out. Nighthaunt Gloom is a weird paint to work with, needed a lot of dry brushing on top to actually look "ghostly".

Like the contemporary ghost design on the mini as well, it's a lot like the ghosts in dark souls which actually gooseberry fool you up rather than being strawberry floating Casper.

Thanks dude.

I'm not being particularly adventurous with colour schemes or anything at the moment, I'm still mainly following other guides or tutorials, and just mixing the odd bit up here and there where I think it might look nice.

I took the variation from the GW guide from this video, then added some drybrushing, and used a couple of additional colours for small bits here and there:

Yeah, I was looking at some of the other Nighthaunt models, and some of them look really solid and chunky for "ghosts". Lots of heavy metal cowls and helmet pieces that make them look super threatening, rather than pale apparitions.

All interesting stuff, but hopefully it all makes up for this slight wallet-impacting bit of the blurb:

For fans of the Dark Angels, Space Wolves, Blood Angels and Deathwatch?

If you have one of these armies, good news – not only do you get a shiny new core codex with loads of new toys to play with, but you also have a new codex supplement on the way.


So all the chapters that got away with a single codex in 8th by sidestepping the codex space marines and supplement system (blood angels, space wolves etc) will now have to buy two books like everyone else as well, by the looks of it. The founding chapters which needed both the core SM codex and their supplement, which only came out last year, are going to have to buy them all over again.

*Massively hype up Indomitus as the new box set to launch the 9th edition so much that it sells out in minutes, ends up on ebay at scalper prices, and eventually has to go made to order.*

"Hey guys, now who wants not just 1, but 3 different starter editions?"



This feels incredibly cynical. It's great that there are smaller, more affordable box sets, don't get me wrong, but they could have announced those at the same time.
