(Very) Short hiatus on account of exams.

On account of impending exams, I am posting this to inform everyone that I will not be posting out orders until the end of next week (Friday 5th of June). All those who have pre-ordered the Azrael will have their ships sent out then as well.

Thank you for your consideration.

Video Painting Tutorial by Robin

And to follow up on the painting guide I put up late last night, Robin from the UK (who did the fantastic video review two posts down) has put up a video painting tutorial for some Diplomatic Corps ships he has (see images above). I think he does an excellent job putting across how he does his ships, and the end result is very attractive. See below or follow the link over to Youtube, make sure you watch it in HD!

Painting Tutorial for Diplomatic Corps ships up on The Miniatures Page.

I've been getting a fair few questions on how I do the patterning found on the various Terran Diplomatic Corps vessels, and I have posted a few text tutorials for some people before. However, I thought that some of you might find it a little more helpful if there were some pictures to accompany the words, so when I painted the Embassy-class Assault Carrier Voidborn Soliloquy (pictured above). I took photos and documented the entire process. I sent a write-up in to Bill over on The Miniatures Page, and he has kindly agreed to feature it on the Workbench section of his fantastic website. Find it over here (clickable link):

Aztecing the Embassy Assault Carrier

For those of you who have not been to The Miniatures Page before, it is the place to be for a miniature enthusiast of any stripe. The forums are huge, and filled with lots of helpful and insanely creative people that will push the boundaries of your miniature gaming world. Before The Miniatures Page, I only knew of Games Workshop, afterwards... well afterwards I have what you see here.

Youtube review and some minor changes.

First up, here is a video by Robin, who has kindly included the Diplomat Heavy Cruiser in his review of products from Ninja Magic, Ground Zero Games and ZandrisIV Miniatures.
You can see some of the other ZandrisIV Miniatures ships hiding in the background, including the Shoji Stealth Carrier towards the left, and the Embassy Assault Carrier on the Right.

Also, I've made a few changes to the shipping table in Terms & Conditions to make it more understandable, as well as adding ship sizes to the descriptions of the various ships in the Online Store.
