Trygon to Mawloc Conversion

Nick speaking,

In preparation for finishing my challenge to paint my unpainted Tyranid minis by the end of the year. I have managed to come up with a way to convert my totally glued together Trygon Prime, into and interchangeable Mawloc and Trygon! Sadly, I forgot to take any pictures of him before I started painting it, so here is a video I made over on my YouTube Channel, showing you the conversion in detail...

American Space Marine Free Hand

Nick speaking,

I had a lot of fun building and painting up this Marine for my good buddy Commissar Gamza for his American themed Space Marine Army. I had a blast doing a green stuff double cheeseburger in his hand and Americanising him up with some free hand on his shoulder pads, matching him into my buddies army the best I could. I hope you like him...

How to Magnetise a Tyranid Toxicrene/Maleceptor

Nick speaking,

Welcome to this tutorial on how to magnetise the Tyranid Toxicrene/Maleceptor dual kit from Games Workshop. In this tutorial I have used 5x1mm magnets that I got from my local hobby store, these magnets are also available on eBay. The only parts that really need to be magnetised are the two head and arm options, so lets do this...



First, I glued a magnet onto a small piece of plasticard, and then green stuffed this peice inside the body as pictures below. The next stage will have to be done whilst the green stuff is wet, so don't just stick this piece in place and leave it to dry...



Next, glue a magnet onto the Maleceptor head, and position the head onto the body. With the green stuff in the body still wet, you can then adjust the plasticard so that the head fits perfectly. When it is dry, put some green stuff into the hole on the Toxicrene head, and glue a magnet into it. With this section wet and the green stuff on the body dry, you can then adjust the magnet on the second head to make it also fit perfectly...


Right, now to the arms, just cut off a section at the top of the arms so that you can fit a magnet to it like this...


To stop the tentacled arms of the Toxicrene from dropping forward, just add a little pin next to the magnet, lining it up with the body with another small hole. Then just add a magnet to the joint on the body as pictures next...



That's it, all done, but if you want to see me magnetise this in more detail, I also made a video here...

HELP for HEROES 'Ultramarines' Bike Painting Update!

Nick speaking,

Continuing on with the Bike Squad I am doing for the HELP for HEROES Charity Army, and painting has begun. So far I have put down the blue base coat and metal work, and washed them both. I washed the blue in the recesses only, but the metal work has been washed all over with two this coats of black. Lots more to do, but it's a good start. Don't forget that tickets are now on sale here and it is a worldwide raffle.
