    I have great pleasure in being able to announce that the latest evolution of Wamp is here: Wampstore is our very own online store that I hope will help make Wamp an even better place to visit. The store is primarily aimed at offering Wamp members a place to pick up some great products at a decent price, but it also has another aim and that is one of a co-operative. There are many great products created by Wamp members that don't have a massive retail presence (some have ...

  • Wamp Review: Dark Sword’s Male Elf Ranger

    Wamp Review: Dark Sword’s Male Elf Ranger

    Dark Swords Male Elf Ranger has a classic old school miniature feel and appearance but does it stand up to what is expected of a character miniature in todays miniature market?

    Cregan Tur The male Elf Ranger is an older sculpt from Dark Sword that shows that, even in its infancy, this was a company dedicated to pushing the boundaries of detail and quality. The ranger is standing in a very iconic stance, as if he is taking a moment to examine the battle before him before notc...

  • How to produce a largescale sculpt. by Cassar

    How to produce a largescale sculpt. by Cassar

    A how to guide to producing a scratch built large-scale sculpt of your favourite mini, for the purpose of this article I am going to do as step by step on the ASSAULT MARINE.

    The technical aspect of mounting something this size and weight in such a precarious manner will also be addressed later on however weight is something that needs to be addressed right from the start.
    One of the most important parts of any build “know what you want to achieve” and get it clear in your minds eye in what order it is best to proceed.)

    First of all tools of the trade, you’re going to need the following as I’m not aware of another method for achieving the sharp edges and smooth surfaces that these tools can produce. Firstly the big gun, a bench sander, preferably with a vacuum attachment as the dust from Milliput is extremely hazardous to your well being (dust mask and gl...

  • Weathering Powders

    Weathering Powders

    Hi, I often see questions regarding the use of weathering powders, since I use them a fair amount in my vehicles I thought I would write an article describing some uses. These powders are a really useful way to add weathering effects and textures to a model and are quite versatile for creating dust, rust, mud, soot and dirt finished amongst many others. Really they're a few things to know before we start since which will help you going forward. Weathering powders are simply an acrylic powder simil...

  • Miniature Mentor Tutorial- Ben Komets’ Creating and Painting Unique Bases Review

    Miniature Mentor Tutorial- Ben Komets’ Creating and Painting Unique Bases Review


    This is the latest release from the Miniature Mentor group. I have been a subscriber to the site for over a year now, and having downloaded a number of these, this has been the most practical and achievable one to follow along so far. I don’t think it’s fair to Miniature Mentor to go into the major details, tips and advice in this review, but what should follow is a rough breakdown of what’s in it and a general feel of my experience as a viewer.

    The basics

    Member Review: Pehua by Freebooter Miniatures

    This week WAMP announced the collaboration with Freebooter miniatures for a WAMP specials contest. Enough reason to write a review on one of their miniatures. This should give anyone not familiar with Freebooter some idea what can be expected, but might also inspire some of you that already own some of their miniatures :) This review focuses on Pehua, a metal miniature produced by Freebooter Miniatures. This miniature can be used in a game called Freebooter's Fate. It can be bought as part of ...

  • The Hotseat: Demented Games
    by Darklord

    In this Hotseat we sit down and chat with thee guys from Demented Games, the Australian company behind the wonderful Twisted game.

    Seb, Its almost 11 years to the day we sat you down in the hotseat. Back then there was no Guild of Harmony or Twisted. So how did things pan out in that time to bring you to where you are now? (Read Sebs original interview here: Seb Archer )

    (Seb) Wow 11 years - yes, things have certainly changed a lot in that time! Last time...

  • 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 – 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 it’s because what you’re reviewing is hard to define within the scope you’re used to working in; it’s something new, a deviation. But what could be more straight forward than reviewing paints? I’ve 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 Press’ P3 line of paints. They’re even in the same...
