  1. I have discussed different paints recently and found some helpful articles: On the difference between acrylic and enamel paints: https://www.model-space.com/blog/2015/05/scale-model-basics-acrylic-vs-enamel-paint/ Charts for conversion of color codes of brands: http://downloads.hobbico.com/misc/rmx/TES_Revell_Paint_Match_Guide.pdf http://www.models2u.co.uk/downloads/PaintChart-RtoH.PDF
  2. Thank you. One aspect of the labor of love is revisiting and improving the figs, see here: Avenger of Oak (revisited 2018) After the cowardly attack on Oakenfold, an order of fighters was founded to keep nature’s righteous rage alive. These determined warriors are the backbone of the Golden Glade clan. Avenger of Oak (revisited 2018) by MWardancer, auf Flickr Customization techniques: Just simple painting of horns and leaves.

Trained by the EADS group (Elven Air Dominance Systems), the giant falcon helps achieve much needed air superiority. The Beak-1b variant carries four heavy Hailstorm spears and drops them with hawkish precision on high value targets. Light armor elements and the trusty lance make sure the Beak-1b does not have to avoid air to air combat either.

    REVIEW: 75951: Grindelwald's Escape

    Could someone test if a horse barding fits on the thestral?
  5. Well, it is kind of obvious, but needs to be mentioned here: the new Harry Potter poseable short legs can be useful for making poseable dwarves, hobbits and other halflings. Let us hope they come in other themes as well.
  6. This is awesome! Is the bird's head supposed to be armored? It should be relatively easy to attach this head to a LOTR eagle (after you saw off the head). The wings will enable a new class of white pegasi when attached to a horse. Easy. Even greater is the blueish creature's head. With 7 of those you can make a great hydra I guess.
  7. It is old news really, but I wanted to point out that the new mammoth can be used in historic themes as well. I like that it has two areas with studs on top (the old elephant only has one), so it can have more figs and structures on top. Also it would be nice to see chariots with the new sabertooth tigers.
  8. Hear ye, hear ye! Here speaketh the creator of the thread. My favourite thread, the only one I regularly check on EB. Please don‘t waste our time with discussions of genre, history or Nexo Knights. They lead nowhere (believe me, I have a Ph.D. in occult and Fantasy literature) and make me scroll endlessly when I look for new parts which can be used for historic themes.
  9. I think it will be easy to use the new Indoraptor as a new DRAGON. So far, it has been difficult to use dinos as dragons, because their body are short and fat, their tails short, army tiny and they don't have a long neck. So even if you added wings, it looked odd. The Indoraptor, in contrast, has a very long tail, big arms and a slim long body. As its color is black, there are neck pieces, wings, and even heads available to complete it. This should work as a purist option.

    Rotating Meat

    "Döner macht schöner" German proverb: "Kebab makes beautiful". Great backstory! I like how the rod actually looks red hot. The poor boy has to turn the meat all day?!

    Quick mini fig question

    Hi Ribbigkid, if I were you, I would try Bricklink.com. Then click on Minifigs. When you look at a page like this for example: https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?M=njo174#T=S&O={"iconly":0} It shows you indicators of how rare a fig can be considered: - price (these are real prices, not some crazy collectors prices that no one pays) - expensive means more rare - number of sellers (lots for sale worldwide) - less sellers mean more rare - number of sets the fig is in - (less sets mean more rare) I like this method because it shows you the real and current market situation.
  12. Has anyone seen them in stores in Germany already?

    Thank you. Using third party parts is a very soft form of customization and maybe worth a try... They are from "Nicebricks" on Bricklink, an entrepreneur provider of custom parts in Monaco. He has good stuff. I have no idea how a single person has access to the necessary tools for making parts with this quality, but he makes them. I have bought several different parts from him and have always enjoyed it. I paid 2 Euro per helmet, but now they are 50% off.

    Third Party Elements - Your Opinion

    Asking whether you like custom elements in the MCW is kinda like walking into a soccer game and asking "So, kicking a ball, is it fun?" I can recommend all of the usual providers of custom parts: Brickwarriors - highest quality equipment, weird figs though Brickforge - highest quality Brickarms - highest quality Nicebricks - a one man company, high quality, great ideas, limited quantity CapeMadness - highest quality, it is amazing I have never ever regretted buying stuff from the abovementioned suppliers.
