Personally I would say go for a Battle Company (then supported by Deathwing and Ravenwing if you so wish). It would make more sense for one company to go to war, than elements of three different Reserve Companies. But to be perfectly honest it's a decision that's entirely up to you.

Very nice, crisp work too. You should be less harsh on yourself - I'd sell my left leg to be able to paint like that.

Unfortunately I have to agree with you, I think I'll go with 5th when I can stomach painting the knee pads up, I really need it to make sense, I'm kind of OCD about these things.

Oh and thanks for the tactica you wrote recently (Just realised it was for the old codex, I hope you write one for the new 'dex!), I found it really helpful.

Cheers.

Default Quick update.

Hi,

Just a small update, I have finished all of the models I currently have and am now waiting for my DV boxed set et al to arrive. Hopefully it will be here by early next week!!





Still waiting on delivery of Sycorax Bronze to finish all the bronze/brass coloured bits, and I may use a different head from the Veterans box when it arrives, so I haven't added that to the Sargeant yet.

Hopefully there will be more significant updates soon.

Cheers.

Not an update today, just looking for some advice.

I have a bottle of Vallejo Matt Varnish. I am going to be using a brush to apply this as I don't have an airbrush and I will not risk using varnish from a spray can.

My questions are...

Should I have a brush for this purpose only (will using the varnish ruin my brushes)?

How much care should I take in applying (am I able to apply like an undercoat or spend time with the detailed parts)?

Will it be best to apply the varnish prior to doing any freehand or masking tape application (such as the company knee pad markings)?

Is there anything else I should know/consider?

Thanks in advance.
