Storm Lords Command Squad

Here is an interesting unit that I got to paint just a little while ago. One of the interesting parts of this project was the sheer number of faces I got to paint for it. So many individual faces, and each of them different from the others. This squad was painted to match a Stormlords ...

More Farrow previews for Hordes: Minions

Privateer Press have given us one more preview for the outstanding new Hordes Farrow force. I know, I’ve posted up their news about Farrow at pretty much every step, but just look at this mini and tell me I shouldn’t. I mean, these pigs are outstanding. Anyway, this “Gun Boar” looks like he’ll be a ...

Privateer Press previews mini-warpwolves

For everyone who has been interested in the Circle of Oboros warpwolf minis, Privateer Press has just previewed the miniatures for their very first non-warbeast warpwolves- called Warpborn Skinwalkers. Their fluff makes them sound like a sort of half-warpwolf unit (they are partially transformed into warpwolves, but not to the point where they decide to ...

Rackham Sale and Aarklash Warpack testing Begins

Ok, to start off, Rackham started up a sale on pretty much all of their stock this week. Everything from the Rackham Store is anywhere from 15% to 70% off. Now, when you hear that, you’re probably thinking the same thing I was thinking. There’s probably one thing in the store that is 70% off, ...

Salamanders Land Speeders

So, I had a commission to do a few land speeders for a Salamanders force that I had already painted. (You will have seen most of them if you follow this blog- but if you missed something, I can just link you to the Salamanders’ Gallery page. As a fair warning, there are a lot ...

Reaper’s new Warlord Expansion

So, Reaper has posted up their cover to the new expansion for their tabletop miniatures game, Warlord. I know what a lot of you are thinking. “Well, Reaper makes great D&D minis, but do people actually play their game?” Sure, maybe no one plays locally, but that’s not a reason to blow off this news. ...

Privateer Press has released images of the green for the next Trollblood Warlock. This is Gunnbjorn- sculpted by Brian Dugas (a man responsible for a number of good sculpts from Privateer lately). I have to say, I’m impressed with the detail work on this sculpt. The Trollbloods are really getting something that follows up with ...

Converted Abaddon (the despoiler) 1

This was a very interesting commission that I received. My client commissioned Dave Taylor to create a new version of the classic Chaos Warmaster. The original mini was made during the 2nd edition of Warhammer 40,000- that was back when terminators fit on normal sized bases. This new Abaddon doesn’t use any of the original ...

Plastic Battlegroups for Warmachine 5

Alright, Privateer Press have just revealed their new Warmachine Mark II versions of the ‘battlegroup’ starter boxes. The price is the same as before (although the minis have gotten a little bigger). The big thing that none of us expected is that the whole thing is made out of plastic. Yep, not only does the ...

The Ghillie Suit

So, I recently finished a commission to convert and paint a Salamanders version of Sergeant Telion (originally of the Ultramarines). The most eccentric part of this conversion was putting Telion into a Ghillie Suit. For those of you who don’t know, a ghillie suit is a set of clothes interwoven with grass, leaves and moss ...
