  • Quote from Theorox: “Great conversions, that unit looks very nice! Theo ” Thanks!

  • Quote from Klexe: “Still better then a goth chick in leather costume with a chain mail BH fighting a dragon and making the heavy metal sign ” OH, I like goth chicks in leather and chain mail!...but for different reasons.

  • Guys...this is simply spectacular!!! LOVE this, we need more of this kind of inspiring stuff to keep the 9th Age world alive! Fantastic work fellows.

  • Quote from Porw: “That's a terrible idea...why don't you use modern troops as heavy infantry, at least they are wearing body armour & helmets or use space marines as imperial guard. ” Well, mainly because 9th Age isn't a sci-fi game. Modern infantry body armor would not look right, you'd have to trim off way too many other modern bits and you'd end up with Space Marines carrying halberds and spears. The idea behind using 18th and early 19th Century plastic bodies is that the 9th Age deals with a…

  • Quote from kisanis: “But will it work for my 15mm AWI stuff? I’ll probably buy some to do my Roman project whenever that happens ” You read my mind. I'm about to do 6mm AWI and these are going to be a Godsend! I have one of the right red Contrasts which will be perfect for British and then the browns and blues will take care of the Continentals. I'm betting that for 6mm and even 15mm one pot of red or brown will easily do most of an AWI army with plenty left over. I used one of the flesh ones on…

  • Hello all. Over on my hobby blog I review my latest round of experiments with Citadel's Contrast paints. Please do not let the naysayers tell you that these are a GW gimmick and supposedly only for gamers who are too lazy to paint models "the real way" or who don't care if their models are all one color. The Contrasts are quickly becoming a valuable tool in my painting arsenal and they are getting me over the motivational hump to get both rank and file units as well as character models done fast…

  • Hello my friends! Over on my hobby blog I review my latest experiments with the Contrasts, with focusing on doing large amounts of rank and file in browns and grays as well as getting character models done quickly with using one or two primary Contrast colors to finish most of the model's flesh and clothing quickly. Finally I review what is my favorite Contrast color I've used so far: Apothecary White! An absolute miracle for that most dreaded of colors to shade and highlight properly on miniatu…

  • Apothecary White is AMAZING!

    My final post for this review is about one particular Citadel Contrast Color: Apothecary White Let me say here and now that many of us as painters would agree that one of the most difficult things to "get looking right" is shading white cloth! I know that many of you are experienced painters and you've got solid techniques for achieving shading on white cloth with traditional layers paints and washes. And I take my hat off to you for that! However, I am not one of those painters. I DESPISE tryin…

  • When I referred in my earlier post about the Contrasts working better with models that have better detail, this example proves my point perfectly. This is I believe a Reaper metal battle wizard that has really nice, crisp details. THIS is what the Citadel Contrasts are capable of. This is literally nothing except an undercoat of tan spray with two quick Contrast paint applications, Orc Green/Iyaden Yellow mix, and Guilliman Flesh. Guys, I did this in about five minutes! Look at how fast I got to…

  • Hello all! I'm back with a significant new amount of Citadel Contrast Paint experiments. And I have to say the results have been very encouraging! A 9th Age member named Thannak recently posted a number of excellent posts regarding his experiences and insights with the Contrasts, and I wanted to enforce his points and add my own thoughts. Here are his posts: Citadel Contrast Paints Citadel Contrast Paints Citadel Contrast Paints In this post I expand my experiments into some grays, blues, and gr…

  • Quote from Henrypmiller: “Quote from Muffin: “I have a quick question, I am trying to build a kind of more historical EoS army rather than a fantasy one and I decided to use models more from the 19th century (so Napoleanic wars) rather than 18th or 17th which would fit more into the classical Empire range that we are also used from GW. Now in general, does anyone has an idea if this would be frowned upon a little bit? I am thinking about using these kind of models: 302012501-Prussian-Landwehr-Re…

  • Quote from mrmossevig: “Anyone tried the yellow and have some pictures to share? ” I haven't tried the yellow yet but I will be posting some new test runs with red, blue, and another shade of brown. I hope to get the yellow before too long though!

  • Quote from Hombre de Mundo: “What contrast colour do you use for human-ish skin? Pictures plus paint name would be hugely appreciated. ” I've been using the Guilliman Flesh on both human and halfling skin, as well as this giant's skin, and it's been working amazingly well: <a data-flickr-embed=48069610888_36bfd927b1_k.jpg"> <a data-flickr-embed=48069613713_ff0deef6f0_k.jpg"><a data-flickr-embed=48069560911_53f2f617af_k.jpg"><a data-flickr-embed=48069518051_6e0d7bbb0f_k.jpg"><a data-flickr-embed=…

  • Quote from cracou2: “With skis at least I can show you that you like the smell of fire throwers in the morning... Dwarfpocalypse Now ofl7.jpg sc3v.jpg o7er.jpg harr.jpg ” Love it!! My eye caught that you used an old plastic breath weapon attack template from one of the old Warhammer boxed sets for the base with the skiing dwarf.

  • Quote from Little Joe: “You know you need to paint all the extra luggage, right? ” Yep!!

  • The winter battalion is finally complete! Added the finishing touches with some knapsacks, blankets, and firewood bundles to complete the look of soldiers on campaign in the midst of a deep and cold 9th Age winter. Here on my blog I discuss my reasons for the choices I made with regards to the field gear that I added to the soldiers, and posted many more pics. of the finished conversions: Stone, Water, and War: My adventures in terrain and miniatures <a data-flickr-embed=48183608851_c98dc2bf95_k…

  • I just finished up the final details of my Empire winter battalion. Overall I'm pretty happy with how it turned out! The only problem is seeing one completed winter battalion now makes me want to do more! (Where I get the money from is another issue, lol). I had enough Napoleonic bodies and Empire bits to do a total of 26 soldiers with command which is a pretty decently sized unit. But as a test run I really could not have asked for a much better outcome. I finished off the soldiers by adding a …

  • Quote from Firthunands91: “Really good result. I own 3 of these giros, and they look way better painted! ” Would be cool to see some photos of the ones you painted!
