I've now got a lot of concrete/urban bases thanks to Phil's instruction, but what's the best way/colours to make sand look like grass/dirt? I'm painting up 6mm and my grass flock will look ridiculous. Is there a wash, dry brush etc technique that people use?
Cheers chaps. painting 6mm is way quicker than 28mm but, by gum, it's not as rewarding. Oh well. Epic (or Space Marine as it was when I first came across it) is actually what got me into wargaming in the first place. There's definitely something more strategic and impressive with the way it plays. Anyway, here's a 1250pt Imperial Guard army in progress.
On a separate note, whilst looking for a Death Korpse horse company, I hit on the idea of WWI german cavalry. BAM! Baccus do shed loads of them. Gonna order a bunch to expand my forces. Anyone want in for P&P?
Yes, I was looking at Bacchus nepolionic cavalry for my rough riders. I will pick a pack and let you know.
Cool. Let me know ASAP. the WWI Germans also have field artillery - something which the Death Korps have. Only problem now is that I'm effectively creating two imperial guard armies, as whilst the gritty mass infantry/siege engines of Krieg look very me, I do like the more flexible Steel Legions with companies of Chimeras and sentinels.
I'm hoping that, as you can have 1/3 of your army as allies, I can perhaps have a bit of both without being beardy. Also means I get to paint something other than black, which I'm actually re-thinking for the vehicles - it just doesn't look right (with my paining skills anyway!)
