Buying Your First Airbrush and Compressor




 by Antoine Rizzotti

An airbrush is one of the most important tools in scale model painting. Airbrushes with fine nozzles and tips are typically designed for using inks.  Many types of economical airbrushes and compressor kits are available on the market, but it can be difficult to choose the best one for your application. So, before buying your first airbrush and compressor you should understand some of the features and uses for the equipment involved.

Tips for Switching to Dropzone Commander


by Novus


Last year I found the transition to Dropzone from 40k a little jarring.  Recently teaching a friend of mine, a long time 40k player, how to play brought that process back to mind.  So, I'd like to share some of my observations in order to maybe help others transition more smoothly than I did.

What GSI Is Up To




It's been awhile since I've personally posted anything and I'm sorry about that.  There has been a good reason, though!  Several good reasons!

Spawn! A Cranky Old Gamer Repost





For those of you who have yet to be awed by Cranky Old Gamer's work, please take a look at this repost.  There is both some great sculpting and painting as well as a bit of Tentacle Maker use.  Enjoy!

I've wanted to convert up some Chaos Spawn for my 40k Nurgle CSM force for some time. I wasn't too thrilled with the stock models, although they did have some nice bits in that kit, and didn't look too Nurgley. You know me - when it comes to my Nurgle CSM force, it pretty much has to be a labor of love conversion. So I started on these conversions a while ago, set them aside to work on some other stuff, and finally got around to finishing them. Super happy with the results! Check inside to see the results!

Lictor Conversion #2


Today we have another great Tyranid Lictor conversion from Ron.  Not only is there some impressive conversion work, but the paint scheme is pretty striking, too!

Is it just me... Or do the PHR have a Dropship problem?


by Novus


I think I've nailed down what my only serious problem with PHR as a faction in Dropzone Commander is... their dropships.

Now, I know the PHR theme is slow, good punch at long range, and high toughness.  But, with PHR dropships the theme seems to have been deviated from.  The difference in point cost (typically over-valued compared to the other factions), punch (virtually no real offensive power), and speed (or, more accurately, lack of speed) is a triple handicap, I think.  Mitigating just one of these would really help them be less of an "uphill battle" type of faction.

Nurgle Daemon Prince Conversion WIP


A while ago I inherited this pretty amazing War Gamma Maggot King from Frontline Gaming in Martinez, CA.  I had no clear idea what to do with it when Frankie handed it to me.  But upon hearing the Nurgle Daemonkin rumors, it started calling to me from the shelf.
