Kingdom Death WIP

Know whats hard?

Painting KD minis.

Know what are absolutely beautiful?

KD Minis.

Know whats spectacularly hard?

Lighting KD Minis for photos.

I'm really pushing myself in blending techniques at an almost micro scale to get better at them. The scarf is coming out lovely but damn skin tone is hard on this scale. I think mastering, and I mean mastering, washes/shades are key for minis with details this small.

Practice makes perfect. It's hard but I know I'm improving little by little.

XIX Living Tactica Update: Recon Marines

I updated the Recon Marine entry for the XIX Living Tactica.

"It's hard to justify Recon Marines when Mor Deythan are so good. If you already have RMs you could use them as sniper Mor Deythan. They are so much better and cheaper in almost every situation. The reason is the Support Squad rule, it really hurts them. If it weren't for this rule I would be tempted to take them over normal Tacs because they have access to Cameleoline, Scout, and Shroud Bombs. But since they can't be your compulsory troops, spending points on them is not easy."
