Salamanders Ironclad Dreadnoughts

As part of a commission for a Salamanders force, I painted up two Ironclad Dreadnoughts with a lot of freehand and details on them. Part of it was to make each dreadnought stand apart from the other. The answer to that, I found, was freehand. I tried to make the flame effects and the freehand ...

Gold and Brass Metallic Metals

There are some general principles for painting metallic metals in colors other than silver. The first thing to remember is that your metallic colors are not fundamentally different from the other colors that you have. You can still use all the same techniques that you normally do- you can layer them and highlight them up ...

Lord Carver mini

Well, I’ve been anxiously awaiting some great Farrow minis ever since we first heard that they’d become a new Hordes Faction. And here he is, the very first full fledged minion Warlock: Lord Carver. Looks like a solid sculpt to me. I might have to play this faction when they come out. Contact us at ...

Classic games can be great

I first got into miniatures gaming in the early ’90s with the Milton Bradley/Games Workshop joint project Space Crusade. Overall, I think the game worked rather well. Three Marine players would board a drifting space hulk infested by an odd mix of Orks, Chaos Space Marines, Genestealers and the Necrons’ great grandfather. We never could ...

The wonders of Scale Creep

Have you ever gotten out some of those older minis and set them next to a newer one? Some of the older miniatures lines have been around for a while and gone through some big changes. Once upon a time, 25mm was the standard size. You’ll still find some older Sandra Garrity minis in 25mm ...

It is a good day for crazy minis

Well, today we’ve just had some news about some outstanding upcoming miniatures. Man, sometimes these just make me so excited. The first one is from Kingdom Death and he’s called the Gorm. He’s a rather large, fully resin miniature who is creepy as all hell and just opened up for pre-orders. He’s also Kingdom Death’s ...

Praetorian Shadowsword 2

Following the same basic pattern I used in painting the Paetorian Stormlord, I used quite a few known techniques when approaching this Shadowsword. I think my favorite part of painting this tank was the freehand I did on the side. This time, rather than a fire breathing lion, I painted on a snarling saber-toothed lion ...

Lord Carver concept art

So, a little while ago, I posted that Alliance Distribution had given us confirmation on a new Hordes faction- the Farrow. At that point, all the solid info that we had were the names of the different characters (a new Minion Warlock named Lord Carver doesn’t necessarily mean that he’s a Farrow). He was coming ...

Ok, this guy needed to be mentioned. He’s our first large base non-epic warlock for any Hordes faction, and he’s quite the mammoth. I mean, he looks like he might have started out with a small base and worked his way up. This is Dominar Rasheth- the only Skorne too lazy to walk onto the ...
