Miniature Showcase: Dictator Ming, Slaanesh Daemon

Lock up your daughters, cover your cats ears and make sure your dogs are sitting down, I got to chat to the one and only, the great.. no, the honourable Ming! I wanted to showcase his amazing centrepiece model, his converted Daemon Prince and also wanted to find out a little more into the background of this mysterious character (i.e. Ming). I have also been given a huge exclusive for the upcoming Realms At War! So read on and get a little turned on as we delve into the mind of strange.

'How I Paint' Series - Carmine Dragon Part 2 (Road to #RAW16)

So today I bring you my painting log detailing How I paint the Carmine dragon, this model has taken me 2 months, the longest I have ever spent on a single model, but seeing as I paid a small fortune for it, I thought I should spend a little longer on it.

Here is how I painted the beast up!

Review: Pitched Battles, Battleplan - Gifts from the Heavens

Firstly I do apologise about the lack of updates on the blog, I have been furiously painting for RAW16 as well as helping a friend paint his army too, on top of this we have started the preparations for Realm Hoppers in February. 

I did, this week gone have quite a busy gaming week, I played a small one day tournament on Saturday in Folkestone, Kent which surprisingly I managed to get 1st place which was cool. I also played Adam James (@warhammernerd) on Tuesday night, we decided to try out a 2500 point warhost pitched battle using all restrictions and this battleplan. Adam had yet to play a pitched battle and was keen to try.

I managed to get lots of pictures and so give you my review of it below.

'How I Paint' Series: Silver Tower, Mistweaver Saih

I finally got round to painting another character from the Silver Tower boxset, this time the Mistweaver! Absolutely stunning model, great aesthetic. Below is my take on how I painted her, this post has quite a big use of an airbrush. If you decide to paint by hand, then to get the blends, you need to make all your layers into glazes, very thin versions of their colour. Use Vallejo Glaze Medium in a 50:50 mix and wipe most of the paint off the brush over your thumb before applying each layer.

'How I Paint' Series: Wanderers, Waywatchers

Again for a friend of mine, but actually the first time I have painted models that are so old! late 90's i believe. I received them already primed with Army Painter green, so had to work from there. These were a pretty quick unit to paint with the technique I used for the 47 Glade Guard. Below is some pics and how I done it.

Road to #RAW16 - Project Rebase!

I finally gave in and started the rebase project of my Brets and some Empire stuff. Dear god, why didn't I do this sooner! Bret Knights on Ovals just look damn sexy! Thought I would blog about how I done the bases.

Here is half of the project ahead, 43 cavalry, I tried to be lazy at first, by snipping the corners off the rectangle bases and then building up with Dark Earth texture and Sand. I wanted to blend the bases to the rest of my Order army, which includes Stormcast, Wanderers, Sylvaneth and Free People. The army is based in Ghur in the forests surrounding Cartha, a muddy overgrown region.
