Showcase: Shadespire Bloodbound Warband

Posted on December 11th, 2017 under , , , , . Posted by

Shadespire has a really low model count. Only 8 models in total and boy are those models great. Each one has the detail and dynamic pose of a character level model. For that reason, I took my time with the Bloodbound and I love the results. Undeniably Khorne worshippers with their Bronze and Red armour. Their ruddy skin complexion really helps sell their angry demeanour. Individual close ups and a recent Warhammer Store experience after the jump.

Chat: Beer Mat or Tea Coaster?

Posted on December 3rd, 2017 under , . Posted by

Do you remember my post about selling my Anti-spill paint pot holders? Well I’ve expanded my range with these fun, hobby orientated tea coasters. Immortalising the words of the talented Mr Rhodes these coasters/beer mats are a tribute to the Lord of Layers Duncan. I’ve actually posted the very first one off the print bed to Duncan as a gift, I hope he likes it. More colours after the jump.

Tutorial: How to paint NMM style blades / swords

Posted on September 30th, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

In this enlightening tutorial I share my secrets on painting flawless blends for NMM blades. The magnification on these pictures is huge but the blends still hold up under such close scrutiny. It looks even better in real life (if I do say so myself). …

Chat: No point crying over spilt paint

Posted on September 19th, 2017 under , . Posted by

I joined the unenviable club of spilt wash at the weekend. I’m an optimist, I’ve aways considered my paint pots half full and not half empty so I decided to turn this “tragedy” into a positive. See what I came up after the jump.
