Iron Daemon Prince
I recently painted up this Iron Warriors Daemon Prince as part of a commission.  I decided that I really wanted to add a little flair to the mini as a whole- so to make it stand out on the battlefield he has a nice customized base. The base is simply green stuff over a normal ...

Smartmax is taking pre-orders for the Thirteenth Hour

  Ok, maybe I wasn’t keeping up, but I didn’t even know that Smartmax was interested in making games to go with their miniatures. They’ve been making such absolutely fantastic Victorian Horror minis that I just missed it entirely. One of the strangest things is that their whole line of miniatures is at 1/35 scale- ...

Dreadnought in Silvers

Dreadnought in Silvers
Just a little while ago, I got a chance to paint up a dreadnought for the Grey Knights. Doing a mini in that much metal can be tricky- especially something like a dreadnought that needs to have two different types of silver to distinguish the machine workings from the armor.  Even when you can make ...

Get yourself some Crawling Chaos

Get yourself some Crawling Chaos
Privateer Press posted up their preview of the Legion of Everblight’s future battle engine.  They’re calling it the Throne of Everblight. I think I might call it “the Crawling Chaos of Everblight.”  It might be that I’m in the middle of playing Cthulhu Saves the World, but there just seems to be something Lovecraftian about ...

More Hazard Stripes

More Hazard Stripes
Here’s a mini that I stopped working on for a while.  I got him about halfway finished, then got distracted with other projects. Oh, other projects.  Always the bane of the miniatures painter.  Can’t you hear them calling to you right now? Anyway, I got back to this guy and finally finished him off.  Overall, ...

Wyrd releases Censored Arcanist Propaganda
The guys over at Wyrd Miniatures have just put out a few cool PDF documents. The first one is the Malifaux rules manual.  That’s not surprising, they had promised to make the rules manual available online.  They also told us that it was not going to have all of the fine artwork and examples of ...

Basic Techniques for beginner painters

Over the years, I’ve taught a number of people to paint starting from scratch.  It is always fun to watch someone learn a technique and be able to make their minis pop with it.  And the truth is, the basic techniques are very simple, and almost everything else a painter does stems from one of ...

Reaper does Savage Worlds

Reaper miniatures has had a lot of news lately.  Their latest grand announcement is that they’ll be producing miniatures for the Deadlands RPG setting. If you don’t know Pinnacle Entertainment’s award winning setting or the Savage Worlds game system, you might want to check it out.  A mix of gothic fantasy and old west, Deadlands ...

Here Come the Pigs!

Here Come the Pigs!
Ok, so the Farrow minis from Privateer Press have been available for a while, but up until now, very few had been painted by me.  Well, I recently finished a commission where I got to paint a whole horde of crazy pigs, and I’m ready to share them with you. Of course, the greatest of ...

Wamp hosts painting contests

The Wamp forums is currently hosting two painting competitions for two very high quality manufacturers. The first one is for Studio McVey.  And if you haven’t seen the brilliance of their resin miniatures line, please go check it out.  Really, you owe yourself that much at least.  It looks like Mike McVey will be judging ...
