    Yeah, not fond of the whole mech idea either. Silly tau. Models are looking alright, I simply feel other armies allow more "detail"(sure freehanding something on the tau is doable)

    I know it's not 40k but it is I bought 40k relic the other day to play with my friends on board game night and it was pretty good. If you ever play Talisman it's the same but in the 40k universe with some polished rules. My one complaint is they use bust instead of full figures like Talisman but they are very detailed if you ever want to spend some time playing a relaxed game with the bros I would recommend Warhammer 40k Relic.

    Stole some wings from my sanguine guard and am putting it on my Emperor's champion. Why not. (I'm pulling my sanguine guard apart for parts, mostly their weapons and wings, so that they can actually be put to use.

    Yea this pretty much happen to all brushes over time all though it does depend on the bristles for how long they take to detoriate

    Here is what I do

    This is pretty obvious and I would imagine most people do this already but never leave your brushes tip down in a water pot, I always leave mine lying on my desk.

    Use different brushes for different jobs; I usually buy two types of brushes, cheap sythentic and expensive. When I say expensive I don't mean really expensive, in UK money about £3 each, the cheap ones are about £1 each or less. I only use the expensive brushes for what I call "soft work" basically where I won't be jamming the brush into small spaces or using it extensively. Then my cheap ones I again split into two groups. One group is the ones that still have their nice shape which I use for neat work and the other group are large or crap ones which I use for anything that could cause damage to the brushes like painting a gravel base, dry brushing or just excessive brush work like slapping on a basecoat over the whole model.

    You can also do things to keep your brushes pointy I do this the icky way which is every time I wet my brush (which is very often) I put the tip in my mouth and gently suck it while dragging the brush out. It's dirty I know but yes I am a brush licker. The other way is to roll the brush on your thumb. If you look at your thumb there is a curvature between the knuckle and the nail, you can roll you brush on this to draw the bristles together to a point.

    Generally it is just a case of being kind to your brushes.

    Meh, I don't really want to, I like how clean they look. I do have the Earthshade Brown wash but... Meh... not aiming for a golder demon here, you have to look at it from a distance anyways.

    I must be honest, I don't varnish anything. But you need to give painted metal a wash, elsewise it just looks... eh....

    Very little, sadly, I'm busy with a fair few school assignments and they're getting in the way. I have 5 termies, 10 CSM, 5 raptors, 10 bloodletters and a herald of khorne to paint. Going for a demon army as well.
