Painting Blood effects with Tamiya Clear Red

I have had allot of questions about how I paint blood on my models-  I decided to post up the tutorial I found recently that describes the technique. 

Hope this helps out a few people

Vikings and Saxons Project Episode 1

So we begin, while I have been working and have painted nearly 48 viking models already, one thing that makes this part of my Dark Ages project different is firstly im allot happier with the models and whats more I have spent some time on the planning and thinking about this project.

I have had an image in my minds eye now for nearly 3 months thinking about how the armies should look, how they are based and more certain solutions to issues I have identified.

Project Plans for the rest of 2013

Ive hit a bit of a dull patch with my painting-  waiting on orders to come in see's me looking at what I want to achieve this year.

Ive broken it down to 3 key objectives before November this year.

1 :  Space Wolf 13th company -  Upgrade and detail completion
2 :  Dark Age Project  Vikings and Saxons
3 :  Fantasy High Elves 

I know that this year I have mentioned I want to get back into historical gaming, but after some recent games of 40k I realized that I will need to upgrade and add some units to the space wolves to see them continue to be competitive in the current meta.  So in the interest of committing to a plan and then to make it work I'm sharing what I plan to work on and blog over the coming year.
