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 ...

Stormlord Superheavy tank

This is a Stormlord tank that I recently finished for a client. As an absolutely massive mini, this tank is set to become the centerpiece for a very large force of Imperial Guardsmen. There are a number of interesting techniques that I’ve employed on it, each of which warrents its own entry and tutorial. So ...

Avatars of War update

Felix Paniagua has given us another excellent addition to his brilliant miniatures range Avatars of War. This time it is an orc general mounted on a war boar. Avatars of War is an absolutely fantastic range of miniatures that fit in perfectly as generals and champions for Warhammer Fantasty Battle. They also have their own ...

Lightning freehand effects 2

Lightning freehand effects
This is a particular technique that I have found to be very useful. Painting lightning arc freehand. It is far more useful a technique than I had expected. It is terribly useful for painting on Space Marine power weapons or for adding some splashy effects onto Cygnaran weapons. Also, if the same effect were painted ...

Movie Space Marines- the story so far

A while ago, I decided that I wanted to collect and paint a Movie Space Marine force. For those of you saying “huh?” right now, Movie Marines were an unofficial force list that was included in White Dwarf 300. The force list itself is full of satire and self awareness. We all know that Space ...

Old Witch and Scrapjack diorama

I recently had a chance to put together this diorama for a client. I really love the Old Witch character from Warmachine, and her mini does not disappoint. Naturally, she and her scrap jack had to be pretty beat up and battle worn, or they wouldn’t look right at all. In addition to the battle ...
