Wyrd is accepting beta test applicants

Wyrd Miniatures are currently accepting applications to their semi-open beta test for the next expansion to Malifaux. The expansion is definitely going to have rules for new crews- it looks as though Wyrd is using Privateer Press‘ model of expanding all factions at once (although some have speculated that there will be five new factions ...

Painting Blood

Over the past couple of years, I’ve had a lot of questions about the way that I paint blood on weapons. I think that blood effects are something that almost everyone tries out at some point, but unfortunately a lot of people give up after a few tries. I first started painting when I was ...

Just thought I’d share a little bit of small press miniatures new with you. Smartmax- a company that does some wonderful and original Victorian Horror miniatures has given us a preview of their upcoming Jaybee the Ripper mini. By the way, most of their stuff is that creepy- and the stuff that isn’t is an ...

I recently painted up a third set of Space Hulk miniatures. I’ve now painted three sets of Terminators, and Two full sets of Genestealers (and I still haven’t done my own).

It was pointed out to me recently that I’ve never made a post talking about how I paint battle damage. Damage is a multi-stepped process, but there are a lot of places for you to make choices. First off, you have to choose where to put damage on your mini, and what kind of pattern ...

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 ...
