Cake Toppers are Minis Too! 1

So, a little while ago I was commissioned to do something rather extraordinary: I was commissioned to convert and paint a set of cake toppers! The bride was to be a zombie, and the groom was to be a post apocalypse survivor with a gas mask. Truly, one of the greatest projects of all time. ...

Warmachine Mark II full rules are out of the bag!

Privateer Press have done something that I don’t think I’ve ever seen from a miniatures company. They have just released the full rules for their 2nd edition version of Warmachine (due to be released next January). You can download the full rulebook and complete stat cards as two separate PDFs from their website. From the ...

New Space Hulk Terminators

I recently finished a commission to do all of the terminators from Games Workshop’s new version of Space Hulk. The difference between the minis is night and day. Of course, I should expect that from the twenty year gap between the original Space Hulk and this new set. The minis fit together a little like ...

Avatars of War has released images of a new mini in progress on their forum. They’re currently looking for feedback on this mini: They’re looking to see if anyone has ideas regarding the armor this mini should be wearing, how much fur he ought to have, any possible weapon options he should have and where ...

More Classic Praetorians

I recently finished another commission for a classic Praetorian Imperial Guard force. Yeah, and these are still some of my favorite Games Workshop minis. There is just so much to do with their faces. There’s a lot of expression and character in these guys, they really feel like the noble underdogs of the universe that ...

the Juggernaut’s Extreme Axe

People who have been keeping up with Warmachine will know about their newest of extreme sculpts: the extreme Juggernaut. I honestly could not resist. This massive jack comes in a rubble pile that makes the Deathjack look simple to put together, and he can be put into almost any pose imaginable (even the fingers are ...

Studio McVey minis… wow. 2

So, Studio McVey started producing resin miniatures recently. And my, oh my, they are leading in with some fine pieces. Studio McVey is run by Mike and Ali McVey. You might know Mike McVey from his work with Games Workshop- he was leading up the ‘Eavy Metal team in the 80s and 90s, and had ...

Classic Space Hulk Mini 4

Ok, so a while back I found a few of my very old minis and decided to paint them up. I started out with this gem from Space Crusade. More recently, I decided to paint up an old- 1st edition Space Hulk mini that I found. Yes, this is a terminator cast in one piece ...

A look at Arcane Legions

Also at PAX, there was a lot of hubub around the Arcane Legions booth. This game is some kind of semi-collectible, semi-prepainted miniatures game. Semi-collectible because, from what I hear, it just isn’t that hard to find anything in particular. You can buy a random box of minis for your faction rather than having to ...
