Weekly Update

Last Week at Wargaming Tradecraft


Some more work on my Krielstone Warlocks this week, including a little bit of a disaster... working on the recovery though, and I guess it's goin well..

Games Workshop has released their new paint line... seems excessive if you ask me:

Up side, looks like more gradients for blending and some more foundation paints, which will help less experienced painters. I'm also curious how these fabled dry-brush paints work.
Down side, might discourage painters to try blending (though the extra gradients will boost GW sales) and the name change seems extra foolish. It'll make following existing tutorials harder for newer artists.

  1. Thanks for the link, but I can't possibly be the only one this week..! I'm guessing you posted this early - go ahead and delete this comment if you have. I've nearly done the same with long lists many times.
