Weekly Hobby Update

Hi all,

Well, since I've started a new job my hobby work has been a little on the quiet side (training at the moment, learning the relevant processes etc.) However, I did manage to get a bit of painting done, to bring my Marines up to an effective strength. I also discovered this little gem:

Fairy Power Spray!

This is fantastic stuff for stripping paint off models. It works on plastic, metal and resin (I've tries all 3 over the last week before recommending it.) Basically, give the whole model a good spray, let it foam up, leave it for 5 to 10 minutes then give it a good scrubbing with an old, soft toothbrush. Voila! 1 model ready to paint again.

Over the next week, I'm going to be doing a bit more with the Marines, then hopefully getting a game in this weekend. I'm eager to find out how much they've changed from 5th Ed, and how useful the Combat Squads in a Rhino is (it should mean that you are able to target 3 units from 1 vehicle, thanks to the 2 Firepoints.)

Oh- and a bonus update tomorrow, since I was asked to further explain my Tyranid tactic from last Wednesday.

Final point- the next round of HoP Idol2 is up. Go vote! (My submission is here, for those that are interested)

Comments, as always, are welcome.

    Reading this post reminds me of my old room mate! He always kept talking about this. I will forward this article to him. Pretty sure he will have a good read. Thanks for sharing!
