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). I’ve been playing Space Hulk quite a bit too, and I’m really excited to try out some of the older 1st edition supplements (Deathwing ...

Wyrd Miniatures has just posted up their April releases for Malifaux. And they’ve kept up their hard work, and are once more offering us some of the creepiest miniatures in the business. The new releases are: Enslaved NephilimDoppelgangerHollow WaifMalifaux Child I haven’t played Malifaux, so I can’t really recommend the game, but if put even ...

Battle Damage

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 ...

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 ...
