Hi,

just popping by to give you the latest how-to-guide by Thorbjørn on his wonderfull blast markers.

http://www.twins4ever.dk/cougarscorner/ ... miniholic/


And to show you the rebased IG-army.

I rebased the IG army for a Epic Apocalypse battle in Copenhagen. We had 30.000 points on the table, (half of it painted). ;)

http://www.powerfist.dk/forum/index.php?topic=40864.0

All text in the links is in danish, (sorry). If you just want to look at the pictures of the army and battle report:

Great tutorial. I tried to copy that style of blast market before and never got very far, so this is helpful ;D

And now, Epic has it's own sub-forum on the danish wargamingsite powerfist.dk:

http://www.powerfist.dk/forum/index.php?board=400.0

It's a danish forum but I believe, you can anticipate answers to any english questions.

And for those who like pictures of painted epic miniatures - this thread is reserved for just that:

I used Thorbjørns Blastmarker idea and made me a Stormboyz stand. Mostly so I could get on the scoreboard in the new Powerfist.dk Epic Painting Marathon:

http://www.powerfist.dk/forum/index.php?topic=41065.0

In the near future it will show many of the newly painted danish epic miniatures.

I have renamed the tread to Thyges Tråd. From now on I'll only post in this thread and inform you about the progress of the danish epic community.

Looks very nice indeed !

It's the first time I see an "ignited jetpack" conversion really convincing. I will probably promptly steal the technique :)

Thank you !

Wow - those blast markers and the Stormboyz look great! I'm going to try some of those techniques!

Thanks to all.

Hope the work shows the "love" of this tiny hobby. And steal away - the first part of the creative process is always partly theft.

I have corrected a link mistake I made concerning the painting competition. There is now seven participants and hopefully more will join:

I have written a tutorial in danish on how I get from this....

To this.

All next week I'm off from work, so I should be able then to rewrite it in an english version.

My Danish is non-existent, but I'm guessing "Spartelmassen" is applying filler with a spatula? So I therefore assume you use ordinary pre-mixed plaster filler? Looks very good, either way! :)

Spartel = spatula
masse = putty

So "Spartelmasse" is modelling putty :)

It helps that Danish is a germanic language so it shares some similarities with German :)

Yes, it's called Carpentry Plaster and has fine grain and a good binding grip.
