40k ETC Best Wishes.

The Irish 40k team leave for Munster Germany later on this morning to take on all comers in the 2010 ETC. Their flight leaves at about 7am from Dublin so with new shirts and dice packed (along with their armies I hope) they carry all the countries hope and dreams with them (especially after the success at the Home Nations) So on behalf of the entire Irish Gaming community let me wish Paul Quigley (Captain), Joe Cullen, Jimmy Murphy, Richard Flood, Darragh Cullen, Paraic O’Confhaola, Cian O’Dowd and Barra Macniocaill all the best. All we ask is that you do your best and most importantly of all, enjoy the experience.

Till next time.

Razorgor Painting

This is the step by step guide to the painting of my Razorgor. I would just like to point out at this juncture that I hate assembling metal models without having super-glue accelerant. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this product it is liquid that you put on the other piece of a model that you are super-gluing that decreases the drying time to a few seconds rather than minutes. While I hate assembling metal models I REALLY hate assembling Chaos metal models due to all the spikes/ horns on them that tend to pierce my flesh while assembling. But enough of my rants and back to the Razorgor.

After assembling the model I added GW sand to parts of the base using PVA glue and left it to dry over-night. The following day I sprayed the whole model Black. As per usual I used the Army Painter black spray. Once that was dry I painted all of the skin sections GW Foundation Tallarn Flesh. Once that was dry I then covered the same sections with GW Chestnut wash. Once that coat was dry the sections were Drybrushed with the P3 paint Kardic flesh followed by a lighter drybrush of the Tallarn Flesh.

I left that to dry overnight and then moved on to the next sections. All the hair was painted GW Chaos Black to cover any color that may have gotten on it from the skin sections and was then drybrushed with a Confrontation Paint Grey (I don't know the exact name as the label came off my paint pot). I then moved on to the teeth/ horns. These were coated with a 50/50 mix of GW Foundation Dneb Stone and P3 Paint Beast Hide. Once dry the were highlighted by a coat of Dneb Stone. I then painted his eye GW Bleached Bone and let it dry. I then watered down some GW Red ink and placed a drop in the rear corner of the eye letting it run around the eye in the crevices of the eyelids. I then used some of the red ink to paint the pupil.

I then moved onto the base, where I painted the Branches attached to two of the legs GW Snakebite Leather while the sand was painted GW Graveyard Earth. The blank sections of the base were painted GW Foundation Knarloc Green and while still wet covered with GW Static Grass. Once that was all dry I gave the entire model several coats of GW Purity Seal (Spray Matt Varnish) for protection.

Till next time.
