    Board game for a 9 year old

    Maybe not 'not mainstream', but Settlers of Catan and Carcasonne. They're popular for a reason.

    Needs a surfboard, but otherwise good.

    Anyone have a quick guide on painting dirty bandages?

    Me: "Ah, looks like I've finished the claws." Those tiny little toe claws hiding midway up the hind legs: "Lol, nope."

    Facial features done, so onto the claws.
  7. I really couldn't recommend using a spray primer enough. For many reasons. Although you will need to learn some basic rattle can maintenance, such as after use, turn the can upside down and spray into the air until paint stops coming out to prevent clogging and pebble dashing your next batch.

    Games Workshop, An Appreciation Thread

    Adeptus Titanicus announced. ETA August. I'm an avowed non GW player, but AT and the original Space Marine was what got into gaming in the 80s, so expect me posting stuff here within three months.

    I get maybe 20 minutes in a morning on a week day if the baby doesn't wake up to paint. I find planning ahead and leaving things laid out so I can grab a brush for any spare five minutes help.
  10. Good for you mate. The time you put in in practice is much more important than the tools you use.

    Progress is slow but steady:
  12. Yep, that's a decent start. And if you do choose to give it a go we're here to act as a sounding board. Soemthing that really helped me not too long ago was looking through the Miniature / GW Appreciation threads here from the beginning. They're quite old now, 8 years or so IIIR, and some of the regulars have been posting their work throughout. Check out some of the people who are currently posting stellar work, and see what they were doing five years ago. It's a real push to see how some of the great painters here ahve improved over time because - and this is key - you will suck when you start. The important thing is not to be discouraged.

    So, remember the HeroQuest Classic KS from, ooohhhh..... four years ago? Well, preorders are up, and a video emerged last month of the end prodcuts being made: 110e plus shipping. I've already decided I'm popping for one th emoment it's out of preorder status.

    Hey, grats, dude! I'm guessing you're talking about a baby and not a KS delivery?
