So I just wanted to take a bitsy to gush about my new wet palette! It makes a huge difference. The paint goes on more evenly, my brushes aren't as brutalized, and it appears that I'm wasting less paint. So easy to make. I followed this tutorial: http://www.fullborerminiatures.com/articles/wetpalette.html. I used the top of a Ferro Rocher candy box with a standard kitchen sponge and the parchment paper. Very happy with it. Highly recommend it to anyone who's having brush longevity and/or paint thickness...
I just wanted to take a quick moment to thank Games Workshop for throwing the Dirge Caster into the Chaos Codex. At only five points it's the best upgrade you can possibly add to a World Eater vehicle. I mean, really! No overwatch? Heh. I have to remember to really remind my opponents that I have 'em on all my vehicles and what they do before the game 'cause I don't like the look on people's faces when they find out that they can't open fire on my berserkers at the time of the assault. It seems... I don't know... Unsporting. I think it might help if I got the little bit attached to them all...
Good morning, my gamers! It’s been a bitsy since the last development update so I figured I’d give you a bit of what’s been going on. We’ve now got players reporting games in four different countries! Canada, the US, the UK, and Greece! Yay! I’m so happy. As for new stuff, the biggest thing for you, commanders of hordes of toy soldiers, is the stats page. I’ve completely revamped it for the New Year. You can take a gander at http://itoysoldiers.com/stats. It’s got more stats, it’s broken up by all time, yearly and monthly stats and...
Before I started my Blood Angels army, I thought long and hard about which power armoured codex to run. I knew I wanted to start a homebrewed Space Marine chapter, but wasn't sure who their progenitor would be. I eventually went with the Blood Angels, as I liked the Sanguinary Guard models and they had always been one of my favourite chapters. However, with the Marine Codex dropping a few months ago, I've been giving the Blood Angels book a much more critical look. Characters I've always been a fan of building my own characters, and the relics available in the Space Marine codex look awesome...
Greetings, Warlords, Commanders, and game enthusiasts! 2013 is behind us and so now is a great time to look back at the year and dive into some of the statistics that we’ve gathered whilst playing with our toy soldiers. All the numbers for 2013 can be found at http://itoysoldiers.com/stats/yearly so I’m not going to parrot them here. But I will take some time to go over some of the tidbits I thought were interesting: First I want to thank each and every one of you who’s contributed to the success of the site. We’re doing...
