Repainting miniatures

Every miniatures painter knows that there are a number of games that use miniatures that are already painted. Everything from Heroclix to AT-43 has gone in this direction. Now, AT-43 and Confrontation minis were designed by Rackham, who have strongly advertised that their minis are 100% repaintable. But it is interesting to look at how ...

Starscape painting

I’ve had some questions recently about how I paint my starscape effects. It is actually a fairly simple process, but it depends very much on a good eye for balance and composition. The first thing to do is get the night sky look right. The effect won’t look right if you just paint stars over ...

Alternate Studio minis

As part of a fundraiser to help start up Tu Publishing, we painted up and auctioned off a few of our minis painted in very different color schemes. I’m glad to say the fundraiser was a huge success, thanks to the very many people who donated through Kickstarter for making Tu Publishing a reality. Anyway, ...

Painting Hazard Stripes

Somewhere, towards the beginning of Game’s Workshop’s foray into Warhammer 40,000, or maybe from FASA’s first edition of Battletech, there must have been a studio painter who really, really liked hazard stripes. As the hobby advanced, this pioneer’s fetish became a standard for all around him, in ways that look rather interesting, but haven’t got ...

Here’s something that I hadn’t seen before. A new miniature for Smartmax’s Mauser Earth line. His name is Streetbot Willy. He’s rather interesting mix of time periods to create a World War I style mech. For the record, I haven’t played the game at all, but this guy has got me interested. At very least, ...

Extreme Behemoth Conversion

Privateer Press’ line of “Extreme Sculpts” has been pretty fantastic to us. The first one, the Dire Troll Mauler was a fantastically iconic mini that just begged to be painted and made into an army’s centerpiece. The addition of the Juggernaut extreme to the line erupted something new. This warjack featured removable everything (even the ...

Hordes official temporary rules available

Privateer Press have just released the official rules for Hordes Mark II. In November and December, Privateer Press hosted a field test for the new version of Hordes. It worked kind of like an open beta test, where they periodically updated with new miniature’s rules. The current version they have up is not the finished ...

Privateer Press, along with the release of Warmachine MK II, have started releasing re-sculpts of their older warcasters. So far, it looks as though the first four warcasters from each of the original four factions will be getting a resculpt. It makes sense. A lot of those older warcasters come from a time when Privateer ...

Privateer Press’ new previews

Yes, there has been a lot going on with Privateer Press lately. The company has just launched Warmachine into Mark II, it has just finished the field test to do the same for Hordes, and it has recently started replacing many of its older warjacks with plastic kits. And faction books are on the way. ...

Painting with Silver Metallic Metals

One thing that people often get distraught over is how to paint realistic looking metals. Just look around on your local game night, you’ll likely see more than a few people who can get everything else in their army looking great, and run into tons of trouble with the metals. There are even a good ...
