Privateer Press is hiring

Privateer Press is hiring a new coordinator for events and competitions. It seems that they need someone to be the tournament organizer throughout the convention circuit (and possibly to design some tournament scenarios). For those of you less in the loop, Privateer Press is a Seattle based company and their headline game, Warmachine, is a ...

Painting Miniatures in Pink 2

There is something ironic about using pink on miniatures altogether. I’ve seen quite a few pink minis in my time, the first ones were a force of pink space marines (the Posy chapter). Most of the time, the pink is meant as a joke, or possibly a way to trash talk your opponents further (for ...

I always love to go and check out some of Reaper’s preview pages. They always have some fine miniatures to look at and anticipate. And ever since they started up their Chronoscope line, you really have no idea what to expect from them, from warcasters to biker girls to pregnant orcs. Also, Jason Weib’s idol ...

Hordes Minion book official

Many are still wondering exactly what the switch to faction specific books will do to Warmachine and Hordes. One part of the puzzle that hasn’t landed yet is what will become of the Hordes Minions who aren’t associated with any faction? As part of a hint heavy episode of Privateer Press’ “Insider,” Jason Soles announced ...

Painting Hotrod Flame Designs

Painting freehand is a great way of adding some character to open spaces on minis. There are a lot of different and specific ways to paint freehand on a mini, so today I want to talk about painting hot-rod flames. The first step is to get the outline of the flames right. I usually start ...

Ogryns

One of the things that I like painting the most are faces. I’ve already done a couple posts about painting human faces (separate ones for male faces or female ones and a third one just about eyes). A lot of those techniques apply to fantasy and science fiction races also (and many can be applied ...

As I mentioned before, I recently finished a commission for some Salamanders. I actually did two Land Raider Redeemers for the project- and I did my best to make them both match and each be unique. The freehand especially is quite a bit different between the two. But anyway, here are some pictures: Contact us ...

I recently finished a commission for a full force of Salamander Space Marines, and I ended up with enough photos to start new Salamanders gallery. First, though, I wanted to post just one of the land raiders- with a lot of close up shots. There was a good amount of free-hand and hazard striping that ...

Due to some popular demand, I have taken a photo of the free hand work I did on the Librarian’s shoulder pad. I thought that a female angelic figure would work pretty well as a Blood Angel decoration. Overall, the design was inspired by some freehand work Jen Haley did on a shoulder pad for ...

Space Hulk Librarian 1

Here’s something I finished recently: the librarian from Space Hulk. I’ve painted a few sets of Space Hulk minis, and eventually got my own copy of the game. By the way, the game is actually a little better than I remember it from way back when. The new edition is pretty much the original game ...
