Using a Smooth File

By TheGraveMind

I didn't realize how much I missed this thing until I lost it. I had looked all over the place, and I was just about to go buy another one when I finally found it in the bottom of a box. You would think it is just another file, but I fell in love with this when I started using it. It is by Revlon, I got mine for $4. This file also smooths as you use it. Normal files are fine for the most part, but can/do leave a gritty sand paper like texture. The real difference is when using it on metal models. It really is a must, especially for tanks. The only down side is it is larger than a normal nail file, so getting small, hard to reach places is difficult. I've also used the edges to help make small curved grooves.

I figured I'd share this great product with people. I haven't really heard of anyone else using something like this. What does everybody else use? Exacto knife, sand paper?

World of Tanks: Is Windows Slowing You Down?

by SandWyrm

World of Tanks is especially slow/congested today, at least for me. My ping, which normally hovers at a steady not-great-but-ok 92 on AT&T's U-Verse was up around 129. Making everything stutter about and delaying my shot reactions more than usual. So I decided to see what I could do about speeding it up. Turns out, I was able to get it down to a smooth 65 ms with a simple tweak. Here's how:

Forge World Vets With Shotguns

by SandWyrm

I thought that I'd do a quick post to show you how my latest 40K project is coming along. I've now got 2 assembled squads of IG Vets with Shotguns using 4 Forge World Hardened Veteran upgrade packs that I bought at this year's Adepticon. Along with some Space Marine bits.

Bloomington Tourney Report

By TheGraveMind

So I've been on a Tyranid roll lately, and I decided to bring them to the Bloomington tournament. I hadn't had the time to paint the last few models like I thought I would have. So Instead I just reprimed a lot of them as I've been meaning to update their paint.

I like the idea of razorwing flocks and looked at the price of $12 plus a piece I almost coughed up a lung!

Liquid Green Stuff Review

by SandWyrm

I'm currently working on putting together 2 squads of IG Veterans with shotguns using the Forge World upgrade kits that I bought way back at Adepticon. Anyone who's worked with FW resin kits knows how difficult it can be to fit them together properly. So hey! Why not give Citadel's new 'Liquid Green Stuff' a try?

So this is the beginning of my Dark Eldar Challenge.  As you know some of our readers here and people across the Internet don't feel Dark Eldar are a top tier army.  I intend to take that challenge.........

Why so Serious?

by: farmpunk

Once in a while I actually do get smitten with a neat army idea, or a neat paintjob. When I went to 'ard Boys Semis, I saw some nice armies. One that got me in particular was the Joker themed Dark Eldar. Yep. Joker as the Archon, and Harley Quinn as Lilith.

Farmpunk Pulls The Trigger

by SandWyrm

Farmpunk and I were going to head down to Gamerz last night for some free Flames of War action, but we decided that it wasn't worth the gas or the 1.5 hours of round-trip driving to get there and back. So we headed over to the GP North instead. Where Farmpunk used his points to buy the FoW starter box.

Space Marine

By TheGraveMind

Well, here is my review of the Space Marine game. It is a little late, but we'll just say I've been busy with school. I'm not one to normally write a review for a video game, but I'll try and keep in brief and concise. I had rented it for a week, so I'm writing as someone who has not fully played through the campaign or mastered the Multi-player.
