Painting my 3rd Ultramarine – Third Times A Charm?

Time for my third (and last) Ultramarine a la Smurf! This time, I am going back to working on the drybrush technique, with the added challenge of my first time painting a face!

I was overwhelmed with feedback on my last painting video and got a lot of great tips that I will use moving forward. However, this video was filmed back to back with the other one, so you will see a lot of the same mistakes I made last time in this one. But don’t let that stop you from letting me know what you see wrong, and what I can do differently to paint these better. Thanks for all the feedback, I promise you will see me use it in the next painting video!

Speaking of, make sure to watch until the end to see just what I plan on painting next!

What I learned painting my 2nd Warhammer 40K miniature

Previously in my Warhammer 40K series, I finished painting my very first Ultramarine. Since then, I got my hands on a three-pack of Intercessors and decided to experiment a bit with how I paint them.

Things went awry with this, my second ever mini-figure. Mistakes were made. Many of them. But, in the end, I managed to hide a lot of them/ cover them up. Did I succeed in making a decent looking mini, or is this just a glittering 28mm turd? Watch the video and let me know what you think of my painting!

Los Angeles Lakers owner Jeanie Buss and Mark Cuban’s AXS TV announced today the premiere date for Buss’ emerging hit series WOW-WOMEN OF WRESTLING, making its network debut on Friday, January 18, 2019. AXS TV is the exclusive broadcast home for the Buss-owned WOW-Women of Wrestling, which joins the network’s highly successful Friday Night lineup that also includes the fan-favorite NEW JAPAN PRO WRESTLING promotion and live MMA action from Legacy Fighting Alliance (LFA).

WOW Superhero events present all-female professional wrestling bouts with the theatrical flair of a blockbuster concert mixed with the hard-hitting action fans have come to expect from the popular promotion. WOW has amassed a large and dedicated fan base throughout the years, on the strength of the unique personalities of the captivating warriors who put their skills on full display as they go toe-to-toe inside the squared circle. The eight-episode series will feature 35 wrestlers, including third generation wrestling superstar Tessa Blanchard, returning superheroes The Beast, Stephy Slays, Jungle Grrrl, Beverly Hills Babe and talented newcomers to WOW such as Faith the Lioness and Princess Aussie.

David McLane, the beloved commentator and impresario behind the iconic ’80s TV series GLOW “Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling,” has produced an action-packed series of intriguing matches. All eyes are on WOW World Champion Santana Garrett as she defends the coveted WOW World Championship belt from a bevy of determined challengers. Will this be the season a new champion is crowned?

McLane will provide insightful ringside commentary, joined by play-by-play announcer Stephen Dickey. Wrestling royalty Shaul Guerrero will serve as the ring announcer for each event while Brigiite Valadez will be delivering the inside scoop as backstage reporter.

“We are excited to add the series and welcome the incredible athletes and characters of WOW to our hit Friday night lineup”, said AXS TV Fights CEO Andrew Simon. “This is the perfect time to add WOW and deliver on Jeanie Buss’ vision of strong women wrestlers in the spotlight on national television.”

“AXS TV broke ground with its airing of New Japan Pro Wrestling,” said McLane. “They are doing it again with the broadcasting of WOW. AXS TV is providing fight fans an amazing hour of action … and WOW is proud to be a part of their epic lineup!”
