    Covenant of Antarctica Colour Scheme Database

    Taken a while to get this one posted, my metallic blue Aristotle with both turrets (link to gallery):

    Painted French Land forces?

    It's an ambitious nation that attempts to camouflage its hundred metre tall aircraft carrier.

    Why, it just stands for big boat.

    Step by Step Guide to Painting a Tenkei Sky Fortress

    Might well be the tip why I haven't seen any clogging: .2mm is pretty thin and .35mm is almost twice as wide. Will have to get some thinner and try it out. Thanks

    Step by Step Guide to Painting a Tenkei Sky Fortress

    Couple of queries. I use similar paints to yourself, but with a couple of differences. I use a .35mm Iwata with Vallejo paints. 1. What made you start thinning the primer? Vallejo's instructions say you don't need to, does the stick of the paint remain when thinned? 2. How do you find the thinner vs water? Due to availability I haven't picked any up and so use water to make the model air colours flow through the brush, but I can special order it. If it's a noticeable improvement then I might get some. Cheers.

    Vonhymack's scenery : industrial harbor

    I'm stealing this idea, brilliant work. I'd been trying to think of a project for all those spare landing barge bits. Thank you.

    Range Attack - Ground To Flying

    I'd say there is no modifier, as there is nothing saying there is one.

    New Blog Entry: Tanks, Tanks And More Tanks!

    Yes, but Colossus is definitely a classical term (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colossus_of_Rhodes) and the CoA have the Iron Men which are yet to make an appearance.

    New Blog Entry: Tanks, Tanks And More Tanks!

    I agree with everything bar this. I think the Colossus looks more CoA. On the chest it looks more like a CoA ball turret you see all over their ships. Plus the KoB don't have any robots/walkers thus far

    Armoured Clash

    I don't think they are all to scale. Number 8 (a Prussian heavy) is the sized like a medium on the preview, but looks similar o their land ship. It also might be incorrectly named (I.e. should be a medium).

    What Naval Unit Do You Never Leave Home Without?

    I never leave without my Uwatsus. I often try to max them out (40% of my fleet). At 1000 points that is 4 full squadrons. The extra CR means they often only get damaged and can still contribute to your swarm broadside. In range 1 against a BB , I've taken out a number of them.

    Wild Mass Guessing: Lord Hood

    Spartan have added the MARs to the downloads section (see here). Incidentally there are other documents there that describe the infantry, new weapons and new generators.In there it specifically says attachments cannot be made to squadrons already containing the attached unit. Ergo, 1-2 vessels is you limit for a squadron of hoods.
