Citadel Colour Contrast – Part 1

Games Workshop introduced with their Contrast Colours a new part of their already quite broad painting range. But where does it come from and what does it do? Among the early days of Games Workshop, when they shifted from being a distributor and publisher towards the miniature tabletop company we know today, Citadel Miniatures played […]

Ultrasonic Baby!

One of the many dangers of watching YouTube is that you think something someone else has done is a good idea and you decide to give it a go. I was looking for alternative ways of getting the paint off models and there were several references to ultrasonic cleaners. These things are cheaper than you would think at £20 on eBay. Methylated spirits seems to be the stuff of choice to remove paint and so far the results have been pretty good. So I bought one… The first model zapped was a really old beakie Imperial Space Marine from the multi part box set from way back in 1988 I think… It took a bit of extra scubbing with a tooth brush in a bowl of warm water, but it has come out rather well. The next batch going in are some old Space Wolf Terminators and a number of 1980’s lead Space Marines with various weapons and wargear.

Borag Oldblood is the team's oldest player and by the way, the only remaining player of the original squad, long […]

In the background of the Maulers story, I mentioned that there was a tryout and those of you who have followed the Journey of the Maulers so far, will notice that the following two players are Rikoth and Rotfang. I always like to give the minis a small characterization which is kept open enough to […]

I’ve ordered at Warb … Dark Peak … forget it, I bought Footsore Miniatures

After a name and brand bickering, that I first thought was an April fools joke, Footsore Miniatures - who took over Musketeer Miniatures back in the day, came back to their name. With Gangs of Rome, they went with the name of Warbanner and recently Games Workshop got in touch with them, as Warbanner would […]
