New paint rack

Ever since citadel came out with its layer paint range I've been looking for a good way to store those paints.  I have the full set, minus a few of the recent additions, so I need a way to easily find and put away paints as I use them.  For a long time I used a parts drawer thing from Lowes, with each drawer holding about 6 paints (base, layer, layer x2).  This was ok, but not ideal.  A few years back I had made a nice rack for my reaper paints, but that style wasn't going to work for citadel paints.  Any purchased solutions were going to be too expensive or take up too much space for all of the paints.  I finally came up with a solution that I though would work and got to it.

Here's a pic of the final rack.  I put hinges and latches, so you can close it and its semi-portable.  Its a bit tall to take anywhere, and I'm not sure the paints would stay in place if it was on its side... maybe mark II will be improved to fix that.

Update after a long absence



After a long time away I'm back... sort of.  I'll be posting updates on instagram, and here as well as youtube as time allows.  I'm not sure how regular things will be, but if you leave me comments about what you'd like to see that will help.

Silver Tower Ogroid Thaumaturge and familiars finished

I finally finished the Ogroid and familiars... I decided to do 4, since the info I could find online suggested that's all you need in the game.  Anyway, it would be pretty fast to paint up the rest if needed.

Silver Tower Gaunt Summoner finished

Here's a couple pics of the Gaunt Summoner.  I finished him along with the Kairic Acolytes and Skaven Assassins (which were basically done), so getting close to working on heroes.  Does anybody know if you need all 8 familairs in the game, or are 4 all that's needed?  I'd rather just paint what's needed.

These pics were taken just before he was finished, but you get the idea.


Silver Tower WIP Acolytes and Skaven

A little more progress over the weekend on my Silver tower set.  The Acolytes are almost done... probably just need a few quick highlights.  The Skaven Assassins are done, and now its onto some of the familiars and characters.

In other news, I played a game of Betrayal at Calth with my brother.  We played learnt the rules and played the intro mission.  Pretty fun game, and nice rules mechanics.  I like the hex square movement more than I thought I would.  I expect we'll try to play through the missions over the Christmas break,



More Silver Tower Progress

Lets start off with a shot of the shelf that's slowly getting filled up.  As you can see, the hero side doesn't have any of the proper box guys, just the mighty hero expansion and some other singles from my fantasy collection.  The monsters are slowly filling up, and I took a break from the bunches of guys to do the two skaven (pics after the break).


Silver Tower Tazaagors finished

I had a chance to finish off the Tazaagors over the weekend.  I basically followed the paint splatter guide, with the exception of the gold. For that I used the Vallejo liquid gold (alcohol based paint).  It comes our really shiny, almost a gold leaf look.  I may give it a gloss shade wash, but for now its just pure gold.

Silver Tower Painting progress

I'm working my way through the villains in the Silver Tower box... trying to keep things efficient and simple, so I'm priming in base colours and not going over the top with layers.
