Workbench version 5

I subscribe to the [url=http://groups.yahoo.com/group/mini-painter]Mini-Painter Yahoo Group[/url], and a painting newbie asked about how people set up their work area for painting.

So, I figured I'd contribute.

Here's the latest version of my painting table, pardon the mess!!

Heresy Lava Elemental (Colossos)

Inspired by the great paintjobs that others have done on this mini, I was inspired to crank this chap out pretty quickly (for me!) .

Painting Ghouls

No-frills Epic tyranid trygon

Epic-scale tyranid miniatures are notoriously hard to get hold of, and it can also be difficult to find suitable proxies for some of the creatures; although Epic nid players find that the tyranid range for 40K is a good source of bits and pieces for converting assault spawn and biotitans. I thought I'd lend a hand by showing how I'd carry out some of these conversions.

Painting the Germans

I had a surprising amount of trouble finding satisfactory colours to paint my German figures with. For those of you who find yourselves in a similar situation, here is what I settled on. Figures were mainly painted with Coat d'Arms (CdA), Tamiya and Games Workshop (GW) paints, although some Vallejo and MP paints were used too. My thanks to the members of the Forum of Doom who provided suggestions as to suitable paints. The Coat d'Arms German Kit proved very useful.

Statue Painting

Not everyone who visits this site has access to [b]Cheddarchat[/b] so I thought it would be nice to have a Tutorial on how Keeper40k's Foo Dogs were painted.
