Tags : painting app hobby stuff

Small thumb appupdates nov3 image1nd 500x500

Hello everyone !!

Update your paint app ^^


The Citadel Paint App is getting some handy new functionality alongside even more models and guides for you to reference. Firstly, we’ve added some miniatures from the latest codexes that are perfect if you’ve just started an Astra Militarum or Craftworlds army or are looking for some new colour schemes. Secondly, adding paints to your inventory just got easier thanks to the barcode scanner, while the camera colour picker can now work with your existing photo library. If you’ve taken a picture previously, or find one online, you’ll now be able to find an easy way to paint whichever colours inspire you.

More and more Handy !

ps : WD app got updated too and work on Smart Phone with a zoom fonction integrated !

Next week pre order !!

Tags : painting scenery tyranids

Small thumb previewoct29 codextyranids2nd 470x500

Hello everyone !!

As every Sunday now GW previews what's on pre -order for next week !!

-Nids codex (nom nom nom)


New week, you’ll be able to order a Tyranid codex worthy of the might of the Great Devourer, packed with updated rules, new ways to build your army and no fewer than SEVEN Hive Fleet Adaptations – new army-specific rules designed to represent the horrific diversity of the Tyranid swarms.

These Hive Fleet Adaptations will cover the most well known of the Tyranid Hive Fleets – Behemoth, Kraken and Leviathan – as well as developing the background for four more – Gorgon, Jormungandr, Hydra and Kronos. All the adaptions have been designed to be fun, thematic, and powerful; Hydra, for example, can re-roll hits in close combat against units they outnumber (which, with Tyranids, shouldn’t be too tricky!).

We’ll be previewing some of these over the next week, as well as looking at the myriad changes and new options in the book including a wider variety of Carnifexes, adjusted points values. and some advanced new Stratagems.

Hydra, for example, can re-roll hits in close combat against units they outnumber (which, with Tyranids, shouldn’t be too tricky!).

Scenery
upgrade for the Chaos fortress: Turn your fortress to a mega castle - chaos star style!
(I have all the elements to do the big one, half assembled/painted)

The Ryza Pattern Ruins can be ordered as a stand alone.

Hello everyone !!

Read this :


Do you want to take your painting to the next level? Have you always wanted to learn from the best? Well now you can with the ‘Eavy Metal Masterclass Weekend! Your ticket will cover a full two day course where you will learn a selection of the techniques that the ‘Eavy Metal team uses to produce incredibly painted models for Games Workshop.

Not only that your ticket provides everything you will need to take part – brushes, paints, models – so all you need to do is turn up! In addition you will get to take all the consumables with you – paints, brushes and models.

Day two will then give you the time to fully practice and refine the techniques you learned the previous day – with an ‘Eavy Metal team member on hand to offer advice, feedback and help you if anything starts to go awry!

In addition, the most valuable part of day two will be where we set aside an entire hour for you in a separate room where you will get one-to-one time with an ‘Eavy Metal team member from the previous day.

The date is 09-10 dec (2 more date planned)


The most important thing to bear in mind is that tickets will go on sale Monday 16th of October at 8:00AM from our usual website (www.eventbrite) and are EXTREMELY limited in number, so get in there quickly!

www.eventbrite is the website they use for managing booking.

So hyped for this !!

Citadel Paint App – The review !

Tags : painting app hobby stuff

Small thumb paintappthing

Hello everyone !!

Gw is releasing the Citadel Paint App tomorow(saturday 16 september) and they sent us these links to DL it.

Android:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.gamesworkshop.citadelpaint

iOS:
https://itunes.apple.com/app/citadel-paint-the-app/id1238189867

Amazon:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/mas/dl/android?p=com.gamesworkshop.citadelpaint

Quick review of what this is about !

General stuff


The Citadel Paint App, is an application made by Games Workshop to help hobbyist painting and managing their paints stock.
-100% Free.
-Localized in multiple language : French, German, English, Chinese, Spanish, Italian, Japanese.
-Duncan videos are still in English only(but with integrated subtitle).

Homepage


The homepage is 5 links :
-Getting started,
-Paint by color,
-Paint by model,
-Painting bases,
-Paint inventory/wishlist.

Getting started

Getting started page is very busy.

First there is a video on the GW paint system.


Then there is 9 Duncan videos explaining the different painting techniques. (some categories have no vid)


Ex: One video about shading (i think it the same one as the youtube page)



At the bottom when you click on the Brush you get a small pop up explaining how the brush is made and what is it for.
I learned there that all the GW layer brush are made in "poil de martre" (sable) is that true ? I knew it for the Artificier but not for the standard one.



Paint by color


It's the main part of the App, for each color of the GW range you can :


Choose a color



Choose a tone.



Choose between 2 methods : Layering or Dry brushing

Layering version



Drybrushing version



You can also access technique video from there.


Paint by Model


Right now there is 63 models represented.

When you choose one.



You get a close up with links accessing the colors section.


Bases

Same as the colors but for the bases.



With quick access to the corresponding technique as well.



Paint Collection


The last page is very interesting, it's my favorite of the app !!
You get to mark which paint pot you have which one you want.
No more of "you go to the shop and buy the wrong color (again !) or forget what you needed".

This is the Homepage of this section.



Imagine ! you are planning to paint blood angels like every sane person ^^
From this page you can wishlist everything by clicking top right corner or select what do you have or want from each color line.
Notice that the paint icons are present on every color pages to add them easily.

ps: If i selected the Dry brush version the paints offered would be different.

Then in the Owned section :



And in the wish list section:


Color Picker


A color Picker is included in the app too ! If you allow the app to access your camera you can take a picture of a model (or a color on the floor or something). Click it and the App offer you multiple colors choices.

Exemple :



In this case i clicked on the arm of the Rat Ogre and a dark brown flesh tone was proposed. if you click on the bottom bar you get sent to another page with 3 or 4 painting options for the corresponding color.

Here another exemple when i captured my keyboard (black) and went to " Trouver les correspondances"



Quite awesome ?

ps: Color offered where a bit darker than the actual model, result may differ with different smartphone/light (Maybe it work even better on the Iphone X ^^) I was using my Ipad and the camera is a bit darker.

Time to wrap up, this review !

What is missing
-Multi language video.
-Stock level for paints. ie : Being able to add détails like Having 2 Nuln oil, or a nearly depleted pot of Mephiston red.
-Having other painted exemple than a space marines backpack, especially on the flesh colors it doesn't make sense right now :D
-Option for changing language (maybe it's in but i didn't found it)

Conclusion

For a Version 1.0 the App is already awesome, it's free and there a huge amount of painting information !!

Well Played Games Worskhop ! Future is Bright !

/cheers.

Coming Soon: The Citadel Paint App

Tags : painting

Small thumb citadelpaint header

Howdy Guys and Girls :)

September will bring us a new free painting app from GW!

"The Citadel Paint System is an easy, straightforward method for painting awesome looking models, and this September it’s going to get even easier. There’s a new app on the way designed to help you paint like a pro, whether you’re just starting out or you’re a veteran looking for a handy pocket reference guide.

The Citadel Paint app will be free and almost as good as having Duncan in your pocket. Except it won’t need to be fed – so arguably even better!"

Regards,
Lady Atia
