In this focus on the Forge Fathers, we take a look at the Brokkrs in the upcoming Faction Starter. Of course, there’s still the Forge Guard to explore as well… The Forge Fathers most often encountered by humans are those known as ‘Brokkrs’.

I finally managed to finish my second regiment of Night Goblins. I manage to snatch about half an hours painting every evening after work and some longer stretches at the weekends. These thirty were easy enough to paint too as the models while excellen…

MaskFX: First Try

Posted on July 19th, 2014 under , , , . Posted by

I mentioned in a blog post on 7/12 that I had purchased a 15mm mask for doing digital camo called MaskFX. (pictured above) I finally got all my Vallejo Model Air paints and I gave it a whirl. So here’s my review and test run with the mask. I decid…

1st Tank Off the Production Line!

Posted on July 19th, 2014 under , , , . Posted by

Finished the first of my All Quiet on the Martian Front MkII steam tanks. A pretty simple color scheme – Vallejo Russian Green for the hull and Hull Red for the tracks. You can see what they look like ‘clean’ if you look at the models in the back there. The rest was achieved with […]

Finished figures, Pine Bark, Magnets, and a new lens.

Hi All,I’ve been rushing to get these figures finished and realized a few omissions late in the game. I won’t dwell on the half empty aspect.I give you the Blood Moon Boyz:At first I wanted to paint them for Orctober 2013. This then got pushed back to …

Mr Saturday

The magos is finished, and just in time too. He takes to the table this weekend at BroCon, for a spot of Oldhammer shenanigans. He was a very satisfying miniature to rescue from the brink of destruction and return to the cabinet converted up and with a…

Escape from Zombie City

One of my favourite survivor/zombivor pairs from last season was the Snake Plisken one. He’s a grumpy looking man.Rather than go for the Escape from New York costume, which was just black with a touch of black thrown into the mix, he’s got camo trousers

Sometimes I like to paint a mini just to try and reawaken my love of the hobby and that is why only one model from the Britanan Colour Party is painted. I placed the Standard Bearer on an inclined rock to 1) Try and add a sense of drama to the model and 2) To […]

Stencil and airbrush

Posted on July 16th, 2014 under , , , . Posted by

I’m working on my All Quiet on the Martian Front minis now. For the tanks I wanted to use playing card suits to denote the company number. I looked around and there are plenty of makers of 15mm decals, mostly for WW2 French armor. But, they all cost a few bucks plus shipping and blah […]

I painted up Reaper Bones Cthulhu for my dungeon bash, but kept my progress under wraps to avoid spoiling the surprise for any players who might visit this site. This is by far the largest miniature I’ve painted, and I wasn’t quite sure how to proceed….

MaskFX from Critical Mass GamesSo I mentioned MaskFX and Stencilis in my last post, and I wanted to give them a little show case as I think these are going to be quite useful in my model painting. First up is MaskFX.MaskFX is made by Critical Mass Game…

Mr Saturday

Another hybrid finished. This time we’re going old school. This is one of my favourite models from the Rogue Trader era. I didn’t get this guy in a fortuitous ebay bid, no. He’s been in my possession since he was first released. He’s had to wait some d…

Thinking about paint conversion charts and triads…

Posted on July 8th, 2014 under , , . Posted by

Ok, so slightly embarrassed by Loki’s excellent work on his paint triads and how long it has been since I last looked at the conversion charts, I started cleaning things up this evening and having a play with some ideas.The original idea was to allow p…

For those of you that use painting triads, or want to give them a try, Loki has been working really hard to put together some great looking paint triads using Vallejo paints. I’d really recommend having a look and support his great offering: http://nap…
