Challenge accepted!

Does this only happen to me?
Saying dumb things and noticing HOW dumb it was later?
In my case it's a Killteam-Match on Saturday. And it's not the Match Blood Angels vs. Orks. It's the fact, that I thought it would be nice to have so Terminators on my side after getting beaten pretty bad last time (It was mainly my scouts fault because they fired blanks).
So this ist my task for this week:



Transforming this pile of grey plastic into a frightening group of Blood Angels Terminators.
With temperatures just above zero degrees outside which is just perfect for priming and basecoating.

Sometimes I hate myself!

Blood Angels Droppod

I really like the Droppods.
That's why my Blood Angels-Army got a Droppod a while ago and that's also the reason why I recently bought two Tyrannocytes.

Back when I painted my Blood Angel-Droppod I wanted it to look like it has been used several times.
Not brand new from factory because when it enters the battle it already had at least one drop on the list.

So after adding so decorations and painting it nice and clean...

Painting Panic

For no sensible reason I suffer from something I call "Painting Panic".
That happend when I started my tabletop-career with "Dreadfleet" and with the arrival of Space Hulk my panic returns.
All the plastic parts are lined up in front of me and I'm affraid to screw up big time.
It's different from painting other armies oder pieces. With my Tyranids and my Blood Angels I just started painting to see what will happen and how all these little things will turn out.
Maybe it's because Space Hulk (and Dreadfleet not so much...) is so "exclusive" in some ways. Those are no Standard Genestalkers and Blood Angels from the shelf. These are minitures you only get with this game.
And who knows when or if there will be a new edition.

At least not because I'm in danger to screw up the paintjob.
I have some experience in painting Tyrandis like this


And Blood Angels are no strangers to me


Finally it'll be like it'll be all the time. Everybody will be totally excited how all these tiny figures turned out and I'll know where my paintjob has it's weak spots.

So: GO AWAY, PAINTING PANIC!

This is about painting

I know, I already had a tumblr but I didn't really got a long with it.
It's not blog enough for me and interaction with readers their is still a bit strange to me.



So I decided not to go the big way (Making another selfhosted Wordpress-Blog) but return to blogger.
It's blog enough and simple enough to post very quickly without caring to much about the backend.

Yes, I will improve the layout over the next few weeks...
At last when I'm done with my Tyranids.
