Warhammer 40000 : Hive Fleet Adaptations from Blood of Baal !

Tags : blood of baal warhammer 40000

Small thumb 9cf1b51a

Hello everyone !!!

Blood of Baal is coming (review this week end) and as usual GW is teasing us with some rules from the new book. Tbh the PA series has not been the great fluff revelation i hoped for. Let's stay optimist for the future and check for new Nids rules (and they really need them right now)

Homemade Hive Fleet Adaptations !!

Blood of Baal lets you create your own Hive Fleet and you get to choose its Hive Fleet Adaptations!

The new book includes a list of cool rules and you get to select two of these abilities – if you’ve ever dreamed of being a Norn-Queen, your day has come. Try Hypermetabolic Acceleration and Senses of the Outer Dark for a Hive Fleet that’s all about munching in melee – they’ll help you get where you’re going faster and potentially mitigate the effects of Overwatch when you get there.

For example you could make :

blood of baal rules

Psychic Power

Each fleet from the codex tyranids get one extra Psychic power to choose from.

blood of baal rules

Stratagems

Off course new Stratagems are added.

blood of baal rules

Bio Artefacts

new Bio-artefacts that can be taken by your Characters instead of those in Codex: Tyranids

blood of baal rules

Adaptive Physiology

A Tyranid Warlord can usually select a Warlord Trait, but with Blood of Baal, your leader-beasts will have another option. Rather than determining a Trait, you can select an Infantry unit or a Monster in your army and give it an Adaptive Physiology instead. These represent a range of gene-spliced abilities that the Tyranids use in order to secure victory.

The Idea is quite cool

Small thumb safe image  7

Hello everyone !!!

New video trailer for the excellent Total War Warhammer 2 !

Story so far :
Tz’arkan, the Drinker of Worlds has escaped from his eternal prison within the Realm of Chaos and latched himself onto the soul of Malus Darkblade, forging a deadly partnership that reverberates throughout the New World. Sensing the potential of this daemonic entity, the Nightlord of Clan Eshin has dispatched his most trusted assassin, Deathmaster Snikch, to investigate the true power of the daemon.

To me, the coolest thing was Snikch fighting, looked totally awesome ^^

If you already have the game The DlC is here at 8€

Otherwise, check the page of the game with all these DLC :

The DlC is here

It's Black Friday week so there are some good deal to make i hope ^^

Hobby Life : Adopt a good painting position.

Tags : painting hobby

Small thumb how to sit properly e1507906279630

Hello everyone !!

Sitting in the right position when painting is very important especially when you do long session ^^ Today I found this post of Facebook.

Disclaimer : Tom Taylor Bigg made this post on Eavier Metal Facebook Group to give advice on how to have better sitting position while painting. Images and Text are from him as well !!

Seating for hobby.

I’m a massage and physical therapist – I work with people with back, neck and shoulder pain every day. I see quite a few people in the hobby talk about back pain and discomfort so I thought I’d try to give some pointers.

I would emphasise this isn’t exhaustive or even particularly comprehensive, so if you have pain try different approaches. See a professional! Other solutions could be standing desks and kneeling chairs.

I have had some training in posture, and have a lot of practical experience in troubleshooting people’s issue, but I’m not an ergonomic specialist so any feedback or things I’ve missed please do feel free to point them out and I will amend this document.

For sitting down in a way to minimize pain there is one key things to remember. A few slight adjustments can make a huge difference over time.

Sightline. Everything else follows from that. If your sightline is right your body tends to self organise better.

Most advice out there is about computer work position, so I’ve tried to adapt this advice for hobbying.

I’ve taken some pictures to illustrate.

good painting position miniature painters

Picture 1.

At the computer. I’ve marked the key joints in red.

1. Sightline slightly downwards

2. Neck joint is above shoulders

3. Back straight and supported all the way up

4. Shoulders above hips

5. Elbows supported

6. Feet in front of knees

////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

good painting position miniature painters

Picture 2. (How you shouldn’t do it!)

Hobby from the same seated position. Lamp is positioned in front of me. This is a bad posture.

1. Lightsource isn’t far enough forward

2. Sightline is very down

3. Neck is stressed, forward of shoulder

4. Back is curved, unsupported

5. Shoulders are forward of hip

////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

good painting position miniature painters

Picture 3.

I’ve adjusted my chair so that when I am holding the mini with supported elbows my head is much more level with it, so the sightline is better. I’ve moved my chair height down significantly and made sure lamp is positioned much further towards me.

1. As light is above me I don’t have to lean forward

2. Sightline is slightly downwards

3. Neck joint is in decent position

4. Back is straight and supported

5. Feet in front of knees

The original post is here : https://www.facebook.com/groups/eaviermetal/permalink/2810228399041353/

Thanks a lot Mr Bigg !!

Spoiler alert: I am painting in an even worse position than the 2. To give you an idea my Wrist are on the edge of my desk ^^ it's bad i know :(

Painting Tutorial : Quick Non Metallic Metal with Contrast Paint

Tags : hobby tutorial painting

Small thumb 75412216 439814913400545 589192435528105984 n

Hello everyone !!

Since the Contrast Paints have been released I have been trying a lot different ways to paint weapons. Also, these days pro painters make NMM with a very dark flat section of the blade and a white part on the edge. As i am painting an IronJaws army, i wanted to have this style of Nmm on my weapons. Off course as i plan to have two max units of Black Orcs i needed a time efficient way of painting weapons.

Painting Steps list

I just want to share the steps before showing details just so you know where this is going.


  • Prime white

  • Paint the blade with Contrast Space Wolves Grey

  • Highlight the edge surface of the blade with Fenrisian Grey

  • Highlight the edge surface of the blade with Fenrisian Grey + White at 50/50

  • Highlight the edge surface of the blade with Fenrisian Grey + White at 20/80

  • Highlight the edge surface of the blade with White (i used pure white but didn't cleaned my Air Brush so there was a little of Fenrisian Grey)

  • Shade the flat side of the blade with Abyssal Blue

  • White Lining on weapon and on the scars

The Method

The method is quite easy and I made some photos to show what I did on the weapon.

Priming white

nmm painting tutorial with contrast paints

Simply primed the weapon in white with my airbrush and some white Stynylrez. Don't forget that if your priming is not very thin/flat the contrast paint is not going to flow well and make bad streak. In this scenario just apply a thin coat of Gloss Varnish to help the contrast paint to flow better.

Basing

One thin coat of undiluted Contrast Space Wolves Grey. Just avoid too much pooling but it's super easy to do.

Higlight of the Edge

nmm painting tutorial with contrast paints

Highlights the edge of the blade (on the right of the dark line) with Fenrisian Grey. I use an Airbrush because it's faster but it's 100% doable with a brush ^^ On this blade I Highlight the white circle and in the direction of the arrows, knowing that my brightest spot is going to be there. Don't make an opaque coat, try to keep some of the color showing under to make it more interesting.

First Highlight of the blade edge.

More highlight including more and more white.

Final Highlight (i notice that i forgot to highlight the circle)

Shading of the Flat

nmm painting tutorial with contrast paints

Then I am going to shade the flat section of the blade (left of the white line). Shading using Abyssal Blue from scale 75 in the direction of the white arrow.

Alternate paints option: Dark Reaper GW, Dark sea blue from Vallejo, coal-black from P3. All are dark blue with a tint of green.

Both side of the blade once shaded.

White edge Highlight

nmm painting tutorial with contrast paints

Here do an edge Highlight with pure white and draw a line between the edge and flat section. You can use pure white or add a little bit of blue. Depend on what you prefer. You can also mark the scratch with some pure light dot.

Final Result

nmm painting tutorial with contrast paints

That's it for this short tutorial on how to make a quick NMM. It's really easy and looks quite good on the board. Off course if you want to up your game you can add red or brown on the flat and blood for the blood god marks. I'll do it tomorrow and update the post.

Stuffs

Airbrush : Iwata (0.3) and h&s evolution (0.5)
Brush : Redgrassgames (both of them)
Primer : Stynylrez

Small thumb deathcomp

Hello everyone !!!

As you know Blood Angels are in the light in Psychic Awakening 3.

They get good stuff, more attack, more smash captain and Death company Intercessors !!!

But wait, what’s this? Death Company Intercessors? It was thought that Primaris Space Marines might be immune to the Black Rage, but the legacy of Sanguinius flows in their veins.

Updated black rage :

They get Doctrine as well, and a new Assault Doctrine power :

Dread Libby buff :

A new Litany and the one from Space Marines codex.

Love this stratagem, for me Blood Angels always was Rhino and double tap !!! (

Flesh Tearer Chapter Traits :

I love these news !!! Still i have one question, how many books i need to play BA ?
BA dex, SM dex, Chapter approved, Psychic Awakening ? ....Holy shit...
