Gencon part 5 – the P3 Grandmasters Painting Competition 1

So, Privateer Press have put together quite an impressive painting competition at Gencon. Since it was started, it has continually attracted some of the best painters in the world (several of whom attend Gencon anyway). The categories look roughly like the Golden Daemons- there are single mini, a warjack/warbeast, a battlegroup, unit and diorama categories. ...

Gencon Part 4- Privateer Press 2

It seems that Privateer Press has become the big dog at Gencon. Their booth was always full, their tables always had plenty of players, and their staff always had someone distracting them with questions. Privateer Press launched quite a few things at Gencon this year. First and foremost, the newest of the Extreme Sculpts, the ...

Gencon part 3 – Reaper

The guys at Reaper are really nice fellows. Their booth featured a Con exclusive Sophie (as it always does) along with some prereleases on new chibi-mouse warriors that they’ll be releasing soon.

Forgeworld Avatar 2

With all the news and previews surrounding Gencon recently, I’ve neglected some of my own work. I recently had an opportunity to paint a brilliant mini: the Forge World Avatar. This mini is quite the beauty. Anyway, you’d probably rather see pics than read a rant about him: Contact us at Garden Ninja Studios about ...

Minis in the Movies

A lot of films these days are adaptations of other properties, but one of the things we’re seeing right now is something strange and new- adaptations of miniatures games into film. Currently, you’ll find a little buzz online about the Ultramarines film, basically because Dan Abnette wants to keep you informed (you can even find ...

Tor Gaming releases Growler type orcs

Tor Gaming have just released some pretty nice looking minis they’re calling “Orcnar Unmanns.” Of course, there’s just no way that I can look at something like this and not say “Dude, that’s a Growler!” On the other hand, there’s simply nothing wrong with looking like a growler. I mean, Privateer Press has been doing ...

Storm Lords Command Squad

Here is an interesting unit that I got to paint just a little while ago. One of the interesting parts of this project was the sheer number of faces I got to paint for it. So many individual faces, and each of them different from the others. This squad was painted to match a Stormlords ...
