Streaming!

I took this picture while setting up for the Warhamster stream, I just thought I’d share. 🙂

I use Streamlabs OBS for the hamster stream, it lets me show the bench cam in 1080p so you can see most of the mistakes I make live!

If you didn’t catch it, I stream Warhammer stuff live every Sunday evening. You can always catch my live-streams on youtube.com/GrossModels/live when they are on!

Warhamster update

Last night marked a huge milestone for me and the Warhamster stream.

It was the first time ever that I have have more than 50 viewers at one time (51 actually!)

I don’t know if it was the subject (the Fighta Bomberz) or just word of the streams getting around, but I’d like to thank everyone for joining me while I build and paint.

I thought I’d take the opportunity to post some pictures of the planes in progress to try to entice more of you to come along and watch! 😉

The first 2 painted in base colours

I painted the first 2 back before Christmas and then moved on to another project. In the new year I opened a vote to see what I should build next, and they came out top.

I then asked for comments for the colours of the other 2 planes, with “Purple” and “The Fang” winning.

The 4 ready for details

Last night I got some detail metallic painting on all 4 planes, they still have some more to add but I’m happy with how they are coming along.

Getting there!

Come and watch what happens next, sundays from 8pm. YouTube.com/GrossModels/live

Sigmar!

The new Warhammer partwork is released today, so I went and picked up the first issue.

The video of the issue will be uploaded to my channel soon, take a look if you are on the fence about buying it. (Spoiler: buy it)

Happy new year!

As 2019 comes to a close, I’d like to thank everyone for their support of me and my channel over the last 12 months.

I haven’t counted up how many builds, videos and streams I’ve done this year, but it’s been a few. Hopefully next year will be as successful!

The last thing I finished this year was the weirdnob, so I managed to get a fairly decent picture of it to finish the year.

Thank you all again, have a great end to 2019 and an even better 2020. See you online!

The results are in……

And I am overjoyed to announce I won!

The orange dragon I have spent a couple of months painting live on Sunday evenings during the Warhamster stream was entered into my local Warhammer stores November competition “Monsters”. And it managed to rack up an impressive number of votes. In fact, enough to win.

As it was the first time I have ever entered any of my work into competition I am very happy, and even amazed at its success. It was a public Facebook vote, people just had to “Like” the picture of the model they, well, liked.

It meant I came home at the end of the month with a “Golden Grot” and as far as I can tell, the chance to call myself an award winning model maker. 😉

Thank you to all who voted, I didn’t get a chance to read my prepared speech when I collected my prize this morning but rest assured it would have been epic.

I shall enter again later in the year, when the category and the store are ready for the massive Baneblade project. And after I have finished it!

Time off

After a busy week of models and partworks I’ve taken a few days off of Modelmaking and gone back to the xbox.

I’ve finished the new Star Wars game, and just started ‘Control’, a similar sort of thing but grounded in the real world. Although it’s a real world with some sort of alien invasion/ paranormal/ superpower thing going on.

I’ll be playing that for a few more days and will get back to the bench at the weekend. Honest.

There’s still “An Evening with Everyone” on Thursday, come join in when I post the link on my Facebook page just before the show!

Baneblade!

If you missed last nights premier, where were you? It was fun! I do occasional premieres on my YouTube channel, it’s always nice to be able to chat to people as they watch for the first time.

The video is still available to watch HERE, although you won’t get any reply if you type anything…..

The video is the first in a new series of making the Warhammer 40k Baneblade. A huge tank thing. Of course I’m not going to paint it in normal, boring colours. As a Warhamster thing it has to be basically orange. And I may have made a mistake in suggesting it would be interesting to have a try at digital camo…..

Keep an eye on my channel for the series, I’ll be releasing videos throughout the build!
