Hello everyone =)

Update for the Golden Demon competition:

- 28th May in Conventry.
- Few tweaks in the entry guideline
- Categories :
1) 40k single miniature, no more base restriction (just the miniature size is restricted), Primarch for exemple are in the single miniature category.
Single miniature mounted on bike are now inside this category.
2) 40k squad, unit size limitation was changed, you don't need to make it a legal unit in games term anymore. New min number is 3 (from 5)
3) 40k vehicle, no changes just lost jet bikes and bikes that when to single.
4) 40k large model, new place for the bigger kits as they removed a lot of single models from there.
5) Single AoS, same as 40k but for medieval stuff.
6) Aos units, same as 40k, min is 3 for big models. You can present 3 skaven slaves it's legal but not appropriate, but it's down to the painting in the end. Doesn't need to be legal just to fit the background and be cool.
If you use a display base, FIX YOUR MODEL TO IT (they tend to make them fall)
7) AoS large model , Nagash, demons, ...Hyped category for this year.
8) Diorama/battle scene, "think like a book cover" with cool models, NO SIZE LIMIT anymore.
9) Duel: no more size limit but the important is the interaction between 2 models. rules are : 2 mini fighting each other. Size doesn't matter.
10) LOTR/hobbit category : Single mini no size limit (even a Balrog)
11) Heavy metal paint master. New category. One model is imposed, on the stock base, no kitbash or conversion. The model chosen this year is the "plastic eldar farseer" (see pics). All the heavy metal team are participating.
12) Bloodbowl team . New category. 11 players minimum

12 golden demon categories, if you win one you are in a contention for the slayer sword.

Side event :
13) Youngblood : -15 year old, single model, no size limit, vehicle

Miniature painting stand with finger stabiliser

Tags : painting hobby stuff

Small thumb handstand3

Hello again everyone !!

Hobby stuff review: I bought this painting stand and it finally arrived today. After testing it for a few hours I'd like to share my impression.

First, it's 3d printed in Honk Kong and I got it for 15$ postage included (by plane in 5 or 6 days)
The components look solid enough but they got a small flex common to 3d printed parts but that should cause no problem unless you are a troll (editors note by Atia: aww Trolls!) or something.

The utilisation is really interesting and really helps when you focus on a small part of the model and want to get good transitions. It took me a good hour of adaptation but once used I find it very relaxing.

Check their video for instructions :

you can order there :

For a such cheap price it's a great deal !

Painting tutorial : Feathering (pirate monkey painting)

Tags : painting tutorial

Small thumb feathering display

Morning everyone !

Today it's Monday paint technique and i want to share with you a very good tutorial about feathering.

To me feathering is one of the most important technique a painter can have ! ( with Layering and glazing)
I know there a lot of different interpretations about painting technique, but feathering is roughly : using your brush to draw-out paint pigment.

It's really important to really understand the feathering because it's the door to using paint consistency as a way to paint. And it was really the "click" that changed me from scrub to painter. And i am not even talking about my painting level, i am saying that before this "click" it didn't felt like i was painting.

By pirate monkey painting :


Why is this technique important? Once it is learned properly it gives someone the ability to create very nice transitions very quickly. It is also helpful in creating high contrast more quickly as well.

There is 3 way to feather and you can train one or all of them (do as you want !)
-Drawing the paint (or feathering without cleaning)
-Spit feathering :
-2 brush blending (From mike mcvey and Privateer Press)

One extra way of feathering is the : Loaded brush technique by ben Komets but it's really hard i will not touch this.

This tutorial by pirate monkey painting (new american painter that crossed France on a bike ^^) is really well made an touch all 3 techniques.
It's a great start into feathering !

Dilution helper by Mojo

Tags : painting ben komets

Small thumb 01 dilution white 1000x1000px 2 600x600

Morning everyone !!

Today i want to talk about dilution ! I always struggled with the dilution level i should use when : layering or glazing.
2 month ago, while i was watching a ben komet tutorial, he spoke about the dilution helper tool he made to check paint consistency. The idea interested me and ho boy i don't regret it ! this little tool really helped me get glaze right.

Bough from mojo workshop : https://www.benkomets.com/product/dillution-helper

ps : The dilution helper is coated with soft plastic so you can erase paint once used and the sheet dont absorb paint like paper.
ps2 : i guess you could DIY by printing it and using a transparent sleeve (the one for magic card for exemple)

Howdy Guys and Girls :)

What you find when looking through the internet - it's a painting guide for Khârn made by The War Gamer. I think it's really well made, and may be a good help for people who already painted some stuff using GW's Duncen guides.

Anyways, check it out - you can find more of them here:
