  • Color my World

    Color my World

    This project was an experiment in color and in pushing my boundaries. I was inspired as a kid by Frazetta, Boris, Suydam, Corben, who all defined the "fantasy palette" of the 70's and heavily influenced the direction of fantasy painting thereafter, as evidenced by Bisley, Bonner, and numerous others. Their colors were rich and kaleidoscopic and seemed to work together without clashing (usually). I've always been fascinated by their use of color. Rackham painters steered in this direction in th...

    Golem Painting Masterclass 2012 -Event report

    I was lucky enough to be invited down to Golem Painting Studios 'Masterclass 2012' held at Maelstrom games in Mansfield. Tickets for the event were £80 and for your money you were treated to a full days painting and tuition from Golems very own Tommie Soul and not one but the complete pairing of Mike & Ali Mcvey. The cost also included lunch and a free Broga miniature to be worked on during the day. The day started at 9.30am with some brief greetings and a mad dash for Coffee for me after an ...

    Salute 2012 - A First Timer's Review!

    Salute 2012- show report
    I canít start this report without mentioning that I am writing this of my own free will, and in no way feel honour bound having blagged my way to one of the biggest hobby events (the biggest?) in the UK. Brett was kind enough to offer up a pair of free tickets to the Excel centre, and I was lucky enough to be chosen to go and sample the delights of a mad number of resin dealers, sorry, miniature producers. The beady eyed amongst you will notice that it said a pai...

    Forgeworld Open Day

    Forgeworld Open Day

    Sunday 3rd April saw me on the road again and heading north out of Wales for the Forgeworld Open Day at Warhammer World in Nottingham. Thankfully this time it was a start at a more reasonable hour compared to some of the other shows I have travelled for as I was attending as a visitor this time as opposed to an exhibitor. I havenít been to a Forgeworld Open Day before as I have always ended up being out of the country or elsewhere when the event is...

    Military in Miniature (Aldershot BMSS) Show

    Saturday 26th March saw me once again up at silly Oíclock in the morning for a two and a bit hour drive with the WAMP Display over the border and across to Guildford for the Aldershot BMSS Show otherwise known as Military in Miniature. The show is deemed by many to be the first figure show of the year as earlier shows have tended to be put on by the IPMS and although they have some figures are mainly geared towards the AFV...

  • Warploque Miniatures – A comparison between cast and printed miniatures.
    by Brambleten
    Anyone that has received a resin miniature from Warploque Miniatures will know, from the title, that this is a very unfair comparison to put together. There are two casters that I would recommend above all others in the UK – BrokenToad, and Rob Huntley of Warploque Miniatures - I've never had a bad or mediocre cast from either. Nevertheless, I got my hands on my first 3D printed miniatures recently and as they’re from Warploque via their Digital Workshop, it’s a comparison I’m going to make....

  • Review: She-Hulk for Marvel: Crisis Protocol from Atomic Mass Games
    by Brambleten
    Welcome to this review of She-Hulk from Atomic Mass Games! It is my first review for a while (or at least my first review longer than an Instagram snippet) so I'm a little rusty and may well get carried away and ramble in places – apologies in advance.

    ​​​​

    At the time of writing, She-Hulk is the latest release from Atomic Mass Games for their Marvel: Crisis Protocol tabletop skirmish game. The great thing about The Crisis Protocol kits is that they’re all uniformly...

  • Review: Solomon Kane
    by Darklord
    Introduction FeR miniatures is becoming one of the go-to sites for larger scale miniatures in recent times, developing a reputation for producing stunning busts and figures, and collaborating with sculptors such as Raffaele Picca and David Zabrocki. It is run by the equally talented painter Fernando Ruiz, who in fact painted the box art for the kit we're looking at here. Chances are that if you've seen a historical figure/bust on Facebook or Putty & Paint over the last 12 months, it's from this ...

  • Taking on the Dark Arts
    by Darklord
    Dark Art Studios turns 12 at the end of the year we manage to catch a few words with Byron about the new Vengeance Miniatures range and the new Table Top game from Dark Art Ė Arena of Doom.



    Hey Byron, please tell us about Vengeance Miniatures?


    The new miniature range is 35mm heroic scale and will be made using traditional techniques out of an alloy metal which is our own formula.


    How did the name come about? Vengeance Miniatures ...

  • Coming Clean: Colours of Battle Paints
    by Cregan Tur
    Sometimes reviews are just hard to write. Often itís because what youíre reviewing is hard to define within the scope youíre used to working in; itís something new, a deviation. But what could be more straight forward than reviewing paints? Iíve done it before, after all. So why was a review so difficult to write? Part of the reason is that, as far as my research has shown, these paints are manufactured by the same company that makes Privateer Pressí P3 line of paints. Theyíre even in the same...

    The idea of the assassin has gone under a pretty interesting transformation through popular culture. One of the biggest contributors is obviously the game Assassins Creed, whose influence finds some resonance
