    Tutorial: GW Imp Guard Squad using Army Painter

    Ok guys/girls, I am sure this would work for many other units, feel free to adapt to fit your needs. I am sorry the picture are not very good but it was a speed paint job after all. 1. Undercaot with a brown spray I used Humbrol Dark Brown 29. 2. Paint the flesh areas with GW Dwarf flesh. 3. Paint the armour with CW Catachan green. 4. This is the point you use the Army Painter, I have the darkest you can buy and I do not dip (you can but it wastes loads). I hold the figure above the p...

  • Brick wall tutorial

    Brick wall tutorial

    Hereís how I did the brick walls for the zombie diorama I did. Itís pretty easy, although it does take a little time. I start off with some polystyrene foam (the stuff used when siding houses). For this, Iím using the Ĺ inch thick foam, although you could always use something thicker if you want. One drawback to this thickness is that itís covered with a thin sheet of plastic to protect it. The foam you use might not have this, but if it does, it comes off easy enough. It does leave small lin...

The fitting is from B&Q (a cabinet joint) and the washer also, you can use anything as the body but I have loads of empty GW pots 2.& 3. fist thing to note is these pegs on the fitting if you want to use it for GW style tabs as well as pins you need to cut half the peg off to give the room for the tag to sit 4. N.B only stick ONE side of th...

  • 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 ...

    by Darklord

  • 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...
