A big thank you to all the painters. You were great! 5 hours to paint all these minis was a real challenge!

Local Painting Tutorial

Magnetized Spider!

Kingdom Death's Spidicules (plastic, by Thomas David?)

When you are a painter and a gamer, you have to think practical. You need to have an easy access to the minis used in a game and you have to keep in mind that they will take a particular amount of space on your shelves (although they are called miniatures!).

 When you look at the dimensions of the Spidicules, you realize it's a monstrous piece of a monster!
So you can either rent a storage container somewhere, or try to find a cheaper and easier solution.
I have decided to magnetized its legs and the appendice on its head. Now I can store it in a small box and it only takes a few seconds to get ready for the game!

Spidicule + baby Spidicule (Spiderling)

First, I built the head of the Spidicules, drilled some shallow holes were the legs are attached, filled these with green stuff and added magnets.

 Then I did the same with a smaller magnet for the head appendice. I also added some green stuff here and there to fill the joints of the different parts.

I cut some plastic parts out of the legs and used green stuff to create joints where I could add a magnet. A small metal wire is still necessary to bear the weight of the body.

And voilĂ !

Now let's paint that beast (Can't wait to defeat it in Kingdom Death's Monster!)


"Please let me in! You've forgotten to let me in!"

Colour Our World Brackened!

Experimenting on a base with GW's new "Barbed Bracken" and "Creeping Vines" kits.
Great stuff, but the paint doesn't spread and adhere well on the plastic which is softer than the usual GW plastic.

You can bend the vines using a hair drier. That's what I did, so I glued the vines unprimed. But then it was quite difficult to make the white paint stick to the plastic.

My advice is:

1. Wash the plastic with soap.
2. Bend the vines with a hair drier
3. Prime.
4. Glue and paint.

14th survivor: Shadow

Anima Tactics' Shadow (metal, by ???)

This one really has a Kingdom Death similitude. Doesn't he look like the Twilight Knight's brother?

Baron Zemo

No, actually it's not Marvel's Baron Zemo but Kingdom Death's The King's Hand (plastic, by Thomas David?)
