What Makes a Unique Cake Topper

Most of what I like to do with the wedding cake toppers is include the things that are important and unique about the happy couple. What makes a cake topper special is how well it includes the things that make that couple unique and special.I am often very interested in matching the unique aspects of ...

Tank Basing

Tank Basing
While it is standard for most miniatures to be set on bases, for some reason, that doesn’t always apply to vehicles.Probably, gaming bases are seen as a necessity to allow troopers to stand up, so vehicles with treads or wheels that can exist without basing get a pass.But I have found that adding an uneven ...

Infant Sunstalker

Infant Sunstalker
The campaign that comes with the Kingdom Death Suntalker expansion features the settlement of survivors helping to raise the offspring of the Sunstalker from infancy. It seems that the lifecycle of sunstalkers involves being nursed by survivors and eventually eating them when grown enough to set out.The art includes a few pictures of infant and ...

Post Apocalypic Battle Damage

Post Apocalypic Battle Damage
Wear and tear is usually a welcome addition to most vehicle models. After all, tank armor is made to take a few hits.One of the things to keep in mind when painting something like that is the story it tells. Where and how you place it tells of how the damage happened. Rusty areas are ...

Cthulhu Death May Die

A little while ago, I got in on a Kickstarter for CMON’s mythos game. It is a fast dungeon crawler where insanity points are used like XP for upgrades up until you go totally nuts and lose.And, of course, you get to shoot Cthulhu in the face.Here are some of the minis from the game. ...

Metallic Fun with Greyknight Rhinos

A lot of top painters have spent many years devising and revising new ways to portray metal objects on miniatures. We were all very impressed by early non-metallic metals, and later when the methods developed for NMM were refined with more precise reflections and bounce lighting. One of the more recent innovations include a lot ...
