Is Miniature Painting for you?

I ended up in a long discussion with my sister last night regarding my painting. She had found a model that she really like when she was shopping for a gift for me and started picking my brain about how to start painting miniatures and if it would be a good fit for her. TheContinue reading “Is Miniature Painting for you?”

Projects for the week of 23/5/22

Next week is going to be insanely busy for me. I have two major assignments due and an Age of Sigmar tournament to attend. I’ve also been asked to attend a Flesh and Blood event on Thursday night. The assignments are mostly done aside from the contextual work that needs to accompany them and whateverContinue reading “Projects for the week of 23/5/22”

Product Review: “The Masters” Brush Cleaner and Preserver

https://www.thecombatcompany.com/General-Pencil-The-Masters-Brush-Cleaner-Preserver-2.5oz-70.9grams I wouldn’t normally do this but this product has simply gone beyond my expectations and has completely changed my hobbying. I am not the most well organised person, despite any appearance that this regularly updated blog give. As a result, my tools often suffer, wet palettes aren’t kept moist, paint lids dont close properlyContinue reading “Product Review: “The Masters” Brush Cleaner and Preserver”

Daughters of Khaine – Warband

So I did the thing I promised myself I wouldn’t do and started a quick new project before putting the finishing touches on my Nighthaunt. Don’t worry though, they are still on my table and I will post the final photos soon. Instead, the deadline for having my Daughters of Khaine Warband ready for battleContinue reading “Daughters of Khaine – Warband”

Arena of Shades Nighthaunt – Wash and Base

Another day and more progress on the Nighthaunt. Now they are looking close to done. As an added bonus I managed to get quick bases done so they look even more complete: So what’s left? I just need to highlight the cloaks, bones and a few other things and pick out some detail. Just aContinue reading “Arena of Shades Nighthaunt – Wash and Base”

Arena of Shades Nighthaunt – The Ugly Phase

Oh god, what have I done?! Maybe twenty models was too much at once but this session has been an absolute SLOG. Here is where I am at: As painful as this has been there is a highlight, I kind of love how these two models from the Craventhrone Guard look. Almost like they areContinue reading “Arena of Shades Nighthaunt – The Ugly Phase”

Arena of Shades Nighthaunt – Day One

I began batch painting the Nighthaunt today. I got through the Corax white, Nighhaunt Gloom, Ghost Grey and Rhinox Hide stages for all 20 before calling it a night. Steady progress, tomorrow I’ll probably start on the metallics and other colors. Hopefully I can get the shade on but I expect that might be pushingContinue reading “Arena of Shades Nighthaunt – Day One”

Learning to use a Lightbox

The $10 lightbox I ordered arrived today and it’s about what I expected. It seems like it will do a decent job of lighting up a few minis at a time and cropping away the sides of the box in shots seems to be easy enough. Here is a small gallery of some work inContinue reading “Learning to use a Lightbox”

Arena of Shades Nighthaunt – Starting the Rest

OK, it’s about time I actually knocked a project completely off the list. Meet the next challenge: Over the next few nights I plan on painting the rest of the Arena of Shades set. The easiest way for me to do this I just to batch paint one color at a time. Because my themeContinue reading “Arena of Shades Nighthaunt – Starting the Rest”
