    I met Neil in person in 1996 when I was in College at Newi in Wrexham... I don't think this will be standard way for most other visitors to your site though!

    The current cover. Next month is some other anime female character.
  2. FYI this is what a palette pad is. This is great for quick uses, but as the guy starts off with that is a palette for mixing paint. The technique in the though allows your paint and more importantly you newly mixed paint and colour to last a lot longer.
  3. Found a great video this morning while looking for details on Palettes and more importantly not wasting money: I also like the more reusable nature of this vs a disposable plastic palette. This is something I never used properly as a kid, I mixed paints usually in the paint bottle they came in when they got 1/4 the way to empty.... To making a palette is important to me as I want that smooth finish and this wet method is even more important as it cuts down wastage.

    Merry Christmas, everyone!

    Happy Christmas!!!
  5. alkanfel009 this is more along what I was thinking: Looking at this I really want 1 to lead my 40K army!!!! It's made by: https://www.etsy.com/shop/MiniaturesPit?fbclid=IwAR1eYylD7Rn-IU6yPsiFKskSeNb53N72Ap9GHhs4VlEvwd9VRmOk0oAwNcE
  6. About 3 years ago I tried to restart the hobby I ended up buying a bunch of miniatures paints and other stuff but got nowhere with it. The stuff stayed in bags behind my lazy boy, between working 12 hour days in Dublin and the costs of trying to get things together I gave up on the idea even more so after losing the job I had for 9 years.... So there I was happy enough with my stuff the way it was. For me miniatures hand hand painting anything is something of the past. But one important thing happened 6 months ago. For the first time in 12 years of working in and around Dublin I found a job close to home!!! Then about 14 weeks ago I saw this: https://www.warhammer40000conquest.com/ It's a weekly magazine and it's like dipping your toes back into the hobby..... Well I broke down and subscribed! After weeks of reading these, looking at peoples YouTube videos on how to paint stuff I've being collecting the miniatures that come free with the magazine. I'm now obsessed with them as much as I was when I was kid in my family home and first opened and played Space Crusade. Last month I was cleaning the shed to find my old paints and in the storage box I found my old Guyver resin kits... the same ones waiting 20 odd years for me to paint!!! So here I am now. I've yet to paint any of my new miniatures because I don't want to destroy them being the first things I paint in 20+ years. So I've being buying old 40K armies from ebay... The thought being well if I ruin them I've no personal attachment to them being 25 year olds I've owned for AGES or brand new ones I got with the mag. This though now as made me learn a few things from lessons I've learned in the past myself and between the research I've being doing I've decided a few things. 1) I've effectively 2 armies building at the moment just as a result of buying Conguest on a Sub. As you see above my old army is Ultra Marines so the Primaris Marine army that comes with the mag will be them and the 2nd being Death Guards means they will be the Chaos army I collect. I've limited space so unlike Epic 40k which you could fit multiple armies on a single shelf this means I'm best off focusing on them. 2) I want to redo my old marines. I've realised as I looked at Youtube vids and read up on it that back in the day I did extremely well for a kid with no Internet (it wasn't a thing the normal kid had access too in 1990! nor was a decent Windows PC!). So I will be modrenising my old Space Marines, which is another reason I bought some old armies from ebay, they will be the test for removing old paint etc with mentholated spirits and the like. While I do look at them as something great for the past I don't want them looking stupidly out of place beside my new Primaris Marines. This includes some minor conversions etc. 3) I'm not collecting these 2 armies to play any game. I'm doing this to learn once again to paint miniatures, have some fun and not just relearn some lost skills but to improve on them and go on from there. This is kinda a great feeling as it means I don't have to restrict my collection in anyway to a points system etc so if I want 7 Dreadnoughts I'll get them on the display!!! Also I think it's finally time to get close finishing my old resin Guyver kits. Which isn't just a case of me wanting to paint them I want to convert them into somethings special in the future.....
  7. Years before I was interested in Guyver, way back in 1990 I fell for a board game called Space Crusade! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Space_Crusade This game was my introduction to the Space Marines and and the lore around them. I would go on to buy the Expansions A friend of mine at the time explained that this game was part of the Warhammer 40,000 universe and I'd go on to star collecting a magazine called White Dwarf which would give me the rules to expand the miniature range in the game. This is a picture of my bad guys from Space Crusade army at the bottom and my Epic 40K Army above from way back in 1993. All of the minitures were hand painted by me back in the day. It was just earlier in the year I'd in fact learned about Guyver at of all places a Star Trek convention 5 years later I was living in Wales. While there I met the person who would go on to make TheGuyver.Net and Japan-Legend.com at a local comic store were we would chat about Guyver. It was there I picked up some resin kits. The skills I learned from painting miniatures would lead on to me painting these two Guyvers: So to me there has always being a connection between my ability to paint minutes and Guyver. They though were the last things I ever painted. I moved back to Ireland in 1997. I found this picture of me from 2001. At the time I was living in a flat in Dublin where I worked and went back to College (at the time in this picture I was a year into my degree). The funny thing is it's of me working on a Guyver picture for Warrior Guyver and in the left side of the picture you can see unfinished Resin kits..... I would move house / flat 10+ times until 2011 when I eventually got the place I now call home a house that is mine (well 70% the banks! ) It was here I eventually finally unpacked all the boxes that traveled with me over the years. In one of them I found these wonderful things: It was the first time in 10 odd years they'd seen the light of day. So what does that mean now..... Continued on my next post as I think this one will reach it's upload limit

    New Chapter status?

    Tomorrow is when the next Ace is due out. Monthy ritual repeats then. Edit: This months Ace is out but no new cover yet. Looking at a translation of the description no mention of Guyver.
  13. This is a question for the web developers out there or people who are interested in getting this site up and running. Basically what do we want it to look like. If you've a favorite info page what site would you like me to take for inspiration on how we should present Guyver data. Things to note though 1) The site is not just for manga, it is for all Guyver official stuff anything that has being published for made for fans by an official source. 2) It's not a forum (Japan-Legend is our forum now) so chats / posts comments etc are here not there. Nor do I intend on closing Japan Legend down to use TheGuyver.Net. This is the home of our forum now (including the one that used to be hosted on WarriorGuyver.com). 3) People who create content will be created to their forum account here in Japan-Legend. 4) Due to hacks in the past to the Wiki on Japan Legend access to theguyver.net will be extremely limited. 5) Any new template needs to be compatible with Lightbox (the gallery software you see at http://www.warriorguyver.com/gwotg/fan-art/ ). I've had to change a template in the past so that images loaded when you clicked them). Eventually as we get closing to the current TheGuyver.Net site being deleted and the new wordpress version being put up we'll be closer to deciding what we want as Guyver fans.
  14. NOTE: TheGuyver.Net in it's current form will be changing once the transfer to Wordpress is complete for WarriorGuyver.com. This forum is for people who would like to add content to TheGuyver.Net. This site in future will be the info page that used to exist in Japan-Legends Wiki combined with the old http://www.warriorguyver.com/gfa/theguyvernet/index.htm and the old Stars Website (this is one for the oldies out there). The forum has being enabled so that we can get the ball rolling. In future any content going up on the site will come from this section of the forum.

    Checkout this bad boy!

    Don't think so, it's also very large from what I remember so you'd need a very large display area for it.
