There’s a lot going on right now.

Let’s start up with some of the really big things going on. The Hordes Mark II field test is going on right now, and will continue until the 24th this month. The significance of this is that all of us who have already seen and love the Warmachine Mark II rules can now play using ...

Lukas the Trickster

I recently had my first commission for one of the new Space Wolves minis. This time, it was Lukas the Trickster. I have to say, the Loki in terminator armor was quite a bit of fun to paint. I used many of the same methods in painting the face that I’ve talked about before– including ...

Painting with a limited pallet 2

Painting with a limited pallet
I find that most of the time, the thing that separates the great painters from the good ones, and even the poor ones is the continued venture of learning more. It id very easy to get into a rhythm of using the techniques you are already very familiar with. Using only the techniques you already ...

Mordheim Cult of the Possessed

One thing that I’ve always been fond of is Game’s Workshop’s Specialist/Fanatics line of games- especially the smaller scale games. That is where GW relegated things like Blood Bowl, Necromunda, and Mordheim. Mordheim is an interesting game because of the way that it incorporates all of the core rules for Warhammer Fantasty Battle, but makes ...

Collaborative World Building for RPGs

A little while ago, a friend of mine decided to start up a Dungeons and Dragons, and I was inclined to play because he is an excellent game master. We tried something new for this game- the Dawn of Worlds world creation system. The GM and all players sat down together and created a world. ...

Privateer Press announces new Warcasters

With Warmachine Mark II on the horizon, Privateer Press has promised that each of the main factions will be receiving one new warcaster and one new warjack, along with a lot of other potential goodies. We’ve seen the new Warjacks for Khador, Cygnar, the Protectorate and Cryx. Shortly after that, we got to see the ...

Well… what do you do with your tenticle pink? 1

So, I recently finished a commission for some Khadoran Winter Guard all dressed in Pink and White. This is actually the second commission I’ve done for this same force, but I unfortunately did not get any pictures of the Iron Fang Pikemen (there used a lovely cupcake design on their banner instead of the Khadoran ...

Another set of Praetorian Imperial Guardsmen

Here is another set of Classic Praetorian Guardmen- this commission follows several others- you can see those here and here. Overall, I think these paintjobs are very focused on the faces of the Praetorians. They are rather expressive and characterful minis, and they have such nice style in that Imperial Underdog kind of way. Here ...

Hm… what is Ex Illis?

The guys at Bastion have a strange new idea for a hybrid game- a hybrid between computer games and tabletop miniatures games. How they’ve described it is this: you use your iphone or blackberry or laptop to run a program that does all calculations for you, and pulls all random numbers for you and even ...
