Hi all, last week I shared my method for making the torso’s and legs for Art-Scale Marines.  In case you missed it you should certainly check it out here.  Once you’ve finished with that come back here and learn how I do arms and see the almost finished Marines in the flesh. OK so you’ve … Continue reading Sunday Colour: True Scale Marine pt 2

Sunday Colour: True-Scale Space Wolves

Posted on November 27th, 2016 under , , , , , , , , . Posted by

Sorry that I’ve been absent for a few weeks.  Real life has been absurdly busy and that’s left little time for projects unfortunately and even less to type about it!  So what was going to be a short but challenging project to build some art-scale Grey Hunters has been dragged out for quite some time … Continue reading Sunday Colour: True-Scale Space Wolves

Empoli Games 2016: second part

Posted on November 26th, 2016 under , , . Posted by

After an overview of what was around, in this post close-ups on miniatures in Empoli Games. A kit for a temple in 1/72 scale. I have to do something just like this in 28mm. One year or another. Always in 1/72 scale, some gods. Why I need a temple? To put decency to a terrain […]

Romics fall 2016: diabolik

Posted on November 18th, 2016 under , , . Posted by

Romics is not the place for exhibitions or talks about comics and authors, it is more focused on cosplay and gadgets. But this time there were really great exhibits. And the best was this one on Diabolik. I was amazed. Different reprints of the first number. Some modifications on the pages between different editions. The […]

Terrain Corner – River Sections

Posted on October 27th, 2016 under , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

You’ll always get those moments with bits of terrain when you look at them and think that’s not that special, but I guess it’ll do.  I used to be very much like that and it’s been more about getting stuff on the table and playing games than the elements behind the scene like terrain.  But … Continue reading Terrain Corner – River Sections

Sunday Colour: New GW Textures Review

Posted on October 16th, 2016 under , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

So I may have gotten all excited recently about doing my Ravenwing and when I saw these new Textures were being released I had a grand plan! I decided (without any prior experience or knowledge – best way Ed.) to do a churned up battlefield, clogged with mud that had seen snow.  Similar to how … Continue reading Sunday Colour: New GW Textures Review

Weathering heights – How to clean your palette with mud

Posted on October 16th, 2016 under , , , . Posted by

Like often, I’ve engaged myself in a stupidly vast amount of projects at once… The good thing is that I’ll be able to show you plenty of cool stuff at some point and that things get done. The bad thing being it takes some guts every now and then to get started given the amount on the table. But hey, this is not me whining or anything, just explaining why I needed a little break.
One of my favourite ways of avoiding hobby burn outs is to actually paint. I mean paint something I don’t care much about and that can potentially provide rapid and high return on investment.
So here we are.

The big thing about wargaming is its a huge hobby.  Its not just spending time painting the amazing armies that we use, its also the field of battle we choose to fight on. I have to say I actually find painting the terrain to be a lot more fun that the miniatures.  I think its … Continue reading Terrain Corner
