What’s the point of having decently painted minis if you have them fighting over a couple of books and beer cans on the kitchen table? Having wargaming terrain is just as important as having … well, minis. I mean you could play the game with tokens and markers instead of models. I have a decent […]Read more "The Promethium Refinery"
Have you ever painted a model, unit or terrain piece only to forget how you did it? What paints did I use? What techniques? And in what order? You know you forgotten all that. I have. About a gazillion times. When I started painting my Shardwrack Spines I knew that if they come out looking […]Read more "Tutorial: Painting bleak and dreary Deathworld terrain"

The wire trees are made by wire (duh!) stringed together and bent into some kind of tree shape with twigs, branches and roots. The bark is just […]Read more "The Albino Woods "
And now something completely different. I needed a break from my Forgefiend cconversion and painting of the Wyches so I decided to test my old school hobby skills.
