Quick post-Memorial Day update and a little Tyranid painting

From a veteran who is fortunate enough to be here to celebrate Veterans day, to those who are not.  
Hey everybody.  Chaosheade here hoping everyone's Memorial Day weekend went well.  Mine was pretty busy between trying to change my sleeping schedule (I need to quit working nights) and two barbecues.  I didn't do much hobby related stuff, but I did try out a couple quick experiments on my 'nids with various washes.  More after the break.

Tyranid painting: test models completed

Say hello to my little friends!  I call the big one 'Bitey'.
Hey Everybody, Chaosheade here with the promised update on painting Hive Fleet Balor and two finished test models.  They are a little rough and a bit sloppy but I wasn't terribly worried about perfect results.  I just wanted to get some paint on them to see how the paint scheme worked and I like how it turned out.  I also have my light box with some more proper lighting set up so the pictures should be better quality than they have been lately.  Full details and analysis after the jump.

Hobby update: Tyranids (Finally!)

Less sinister than this update, but just as deadly... perhaps.
Well then.  I believe it's about time for update time.  Chaosheade here with an update on my nids.  Don't worry, there will be no more repetitive redundancy in this post.  It's taken so long to get started back up with them partially because of moving and being busy as hell and partially because having trouble figuring out the paint scheme kind of put me off of working on the army.  That should be over now since I think I have a much more solid plan for a paint scheme that I like and I also decided on a name for my hive fleet.  Check out all the juicy details after the jump.

Hey everybody.  Chaosheade here with another Community Spotlight article showcasing an inspirational example of a true counts-as army.  These 'Tyracrons' from Musings of a Metal Mind are not just another re-purposed MEQ proxy army, they are the real deal.  Painstakingly converted, expertly painted, and just plain scary looking, this army is masterfully done and a credit to our hobby.  More after the jump.

Too... many... features! Source
Hey everybody, Chaosheade here with an update to the first installment of Adventures in Airbrushing.  In the first installment I very briefly touched on some of the extra features that comes with some airbrushes and now I will go over many of them in more detail to help you make a more informed decision.  Enough introductory yakkity-yak.  Don't talk back, just get to the juicy details after the jump.

Life happens. Sometimes it happens a lot.

Hey everybody, Chaosheade checking in.  Life has been crazy lately, which has obviously slowed things down on the blogging front.  I mentioned a couple weeks ago that my wife and I were buying a house and I have good news: we are officially homeowners now!  We closed on the house on Friday and have been really busy with paperwork, moving, and all sorts of stuff.  I won't go into the details but I'm sure that anyone who has bought a house knows how it goes, especially since the whole housing bubble and the increased scrutiny on mortgages since then.  I did manage to squeeze in some time to get another article written so expect something new soon and before long I will actually have some free time for hobbying and blogging so things will be back to normal around here.  Well, at least as normal as it gets.  You will hear more from us soon.  Catch you on the flip side.
