I did not think it was a game for me either but my boys and I have had a lot of fun the past few weeks. They ask to play 40K daily. Truth is I actually have really enjoyed building and painting the models. And the game is actually really fun. Some days rolling a fist full of dice is just right.

A few channels I watch say ultramarine blue is the worst contrast paint but those look awesome to me

I’m more jealous of sitting down with the kids and playing 40k lite - good for you 🥰

Well, the base of the ultramarine is actually Citadel Air paint and an old-fashioned pot of Macragge Blue. I did follow the suggestion from a how-to paint video and used Basilicanum Grey as a shade on the silver areas and to line the space marine armor. I wanted Levathon Blue to do the lining but every game store in my area was out of it. It actually works well as a shade and is much easier to control.

The 40K armies underwent a significant surprise feline attack today. I need to conduct emergency operations to fix a weapon and a couple of smaller parts broken during the attack. Nurse I need paper clips, super glue, and excess sprue stat!

Never had the cat attack issue but I sympathise - there’s nothing worse than finding your carefully crafted men in little bits

Its the same with map and counters......




It also proves beyond doubt that the world is round. If it was flat, then cats would have pushed everything off the edges by now.

I decided that discretion was the better part of valour, and remembered I had something more important to do. A dental appointment, I think it was.

Cats are jerks. They hold some unwarranted worldview that they are in charge of everything.

I was able to pin the weapon back in place. I needed to take a break after supergluing my fingers together multiple times...

Now I just need to figure out how I am going to fix some tiny shoulder armor pieces. I think if I cut down paper clips and then use superglue to create a point to fix the side of the piece it may work. The pieces are too small to use a little hand drill to fix. Otherwise, the Necron bosses will lose some super sweet bling.

At some point, I need to do some rust or verdigris effects on some Warcry terrain. I will have to look into these products but they are not something I have seen in the US.

I use the AK Interactive effects stuff.  It works great.

I find GW corrosion paint dry brushed with ryza rust works well if you don’t want to get too technical
