Re: An interesting day

Sorry to hear about your dad, and with this being the day after Armistice Day, I'd be remiss if I didn't also express gratitude for his RAF Service as well.

Yeah I have a TON of that top one, he's a champion from the generic Dark Elf Command blister from 4th Ed...1995 or so. Somebody has glued a pistol on the one in this pic, and I would bet that it's from a Dogs of War unit called "Long Drong Slayer's Dwarven Pirates". They came with extra, l...

Re: Re-release of Blood Bowl next month

I also played BB before WH. Thx for the info! It's a pretty common thing to hear. Warhammer can seem extremely daunting to a new gamer who sees it for the first time. You have all these little minis that you had to assemble and paint yourself? There's no way I could ever do that! Then you see a blo...

Re-release of Blood Bowl next month

If you aren't aware, GW (more specifically Forge World) is bringing back Blood Bowl to the tabletop next month. An exact release date is not yet known, but was confirmed to be November. New minis, we're told the rules are the same (but you know how rumors can abound about tweaks and such). The board...

Re: What do we want the future of Druchii.net to be?

The problem with that is that, Rork, unless there's a social media outlet I'm not familiar with (highly possible), it doesn't really lend itself well to archival stuff. The treasure trove of info that's built up over time with forums is not something social media can do, and it was my #1 draw to thi...

Re: D-Net SECRET SANTA

I did Ulthuan's under the assumption that we were "combining" with them at some point, so this was a first step in that. I don't really want to commit to doing 2 minis, but if I had known Druchii.net was doing their own, I would have participated in yours.

Ah well, c'est la vie.

I like the unusual name of our forum and the other elf factions.


I don't know, and I agree that I like the unique name... maybe we could go Tolkein? Noldorim.net? Is that copywritten?

Shouldn't it be "InternationalElfService", if you're going down that road?

I know it's not as fun, but I say elfwargames. It is clear, and tells you what you can expect to see there.

I was thinking it was in one of the "Annual General's Compendiums" they were doing for a while...but I can't remember for sure.

I have a few of those at home, I will try to remember to look for it when I get home from work today.

Re: Supplies!

For paintbrushes, I order mine here: m Reasonabl cheap and good quality. Mine lasted a few years. I will be replacing them now, though I wonder if better care for my brushes would have kept them longer. I can second the new metallics from GW. They are quite a jump ahead in quality.

Shadowspite covered most of the bases pretty well, but I'd add that good brushes make all the difference. Make sure you buy Kolinsky Sable brushes, the manufacturer is secondary. The "gold standard" is Winsor and Newton Series 7, but again, any Kolinsky Sable round should do fine. I have h...

OK, I'm at about 90% with my Chaos BB Team. I still need to number them, base them, a little touch up work, and the eyes. Since it's a whole team, I took several pics, so instead of posting them directly, I'll link to the photobucket slideshow. But for a teaser, I'll put the minotaur here directly. ...

Re: Gold Paint Advice

Yeah, definitely start with a dark basecoat - I use P3's Umbral Umber. I'm told by the people who design the paint that the metallics are designed to show up over a darker surface, and I can tell the difference when I do it that way. It brings out the metallic better. After that, I have a Vallejo Go...
