  • WAMP Review: Dark Sword Raccoon Thief

    WAMP Review: Dark Sword Raccoon Thief

    Cregan Tur My wife gave me the Raccoon Thief from Dark Sword miniatures for my birthday a few years ago, so I’m very familiar with the piece even though it still gets shuffled around me lead mountain and hasn’t seen any painting except as a cloth demo on the cloak about a year ago. Really need to strip him down and give him a good paint job… but I digress. If you don’t know what a raccoon is, then you’re not from the United States and have never seen Disney’s Pocahontas. They’re omnivorous rode...

  • Male Ranger by Dark Sword

    Male Ranger by Dark Sword

    Cregan Tur

    The Male Ranger (not to be confused with Male Elf Ranger from a previous review. Everyone still with me? Okay, good) from Dark Sword has become a pretty well known figure thanks to the incredible monotone paint job by Jen Haley that Miniature Mentor made a tutorial for… but that’s an entirely different review. Here the focus is on the miniature itself.

    First off, I have to be honest and say that I always thought this guy was holding a hunting horn. Only after...

  • WAMP review: Reaper Bugbear Warrior - Bones vs Metal

    WAMP review: Reaper Bugbear Warrior - Bones vs Metal

    During their immensely successful Kickstarter project (“Help us dig up all of the bones!”), Reaper got a huge amount of attention for their new miniatures line, Bones. Miniatures of this line are made of a polymer plastic that is supposed to be easier to use as it allows gamers and painters to skip priming and start painting immediately after taking the mini out of the blister package. In addition to that, the prices are much lower than the prices of the metal range.
    In this review we wi...

  • Freehand Painting - Step by Step

    Freehand Painting - Step by Step

    One of the things I love to add to my figures is a design or pattern, something unique to make it stand out from the many other versions you may see around the web. This can take the form of a small detail like a line or pattern on a piece of clothing, an emblem on a shield or flag, or something much more complex. Painting designs on your figure can really be as simple or as complicated as you'd like. I recommend starting small with simple designs and then working your way up to more ...

  • Painting Skin Tones

    Painting Skin Tones

    Painting skin on your models can be tricky and, at times, quite frustrating. But once you get a handle on it, it's actually a lot of fun and gives you plenty of room to experiment. My goal in this tutorial is to share my general approach to painting skin and give you a number of mixes and corresponding figure examples. When it comes to paints there are a lot of good choices (GW, Vallejo, P3, etc). However for this tutorial I'm mostly using Reaper Master Series. I like these because (a)...

  • 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...
