Mordheim Pit Fighters
I painted a band of Pit Fighters a little while back for Mordheim, using a variety of models but mostly some Tzeentch cultists. I also did a few unique things when it came to painting them that I'll also discuss the details of at the end of the article. Bas...

Count Vlagorescu's Midnight Court
Overview This was a project that I completed for two reasons. The first was that I've been wanting to build an Age of Sigmar army to game with the folks at our new local Warhammer store. Then came along  Armies on Parade 2016 . That was the push that I need...

Fletching (Creating) Arrows
You may have noticed a wound on the wrap up post for my Hordebloods Axer Blademaster . It was an arrow that I made out of guitar string and feathers - pretty straight forward stuff but a nice way to add realism to a project. Little details like this, wounds...

Strange Magic - Part 2
When I last looked at creating some movie magic from Doctor Strange and applying it to miniatures, it was for the floating runes . This week I'm going to look at the invisible swords that were created by the antagonists. Now, to be fair, I created the below...

Building a 3D Game Board
Talk about older projects that deserve to be highlighted... OK, not directly Wargaming related though I could see applications for the skills you're about to see. My dad and I built a 3D game board many years back for an underwater Dungeons and Dragons camp...

Create an Airbrush Carrying Case
My wonderful wife picked me up a new airbrush a while back. It's another Iwata, but moving up from a 0.35mm to a 0.2mm and yes, it makes a difference. But before that I kept my airbrush on my hobby shelf, nothing fancy and now I have a second one to take ca...

Hordebloods - Axer base and Final Photos
Wrapping up the Trollblood Axer, I'll touch on how I created his base before showing the final photos. It's another opportunity to see some of the uses of the many  sculpting gels  that I work with. Today I'm using it to add form and motion rather than usin...

Realistically Wrapped Weapon Grips
I've used  string before on bows , though that's a much more subtle use than you're going to see today. The idea here is to wrap an entire weapon grip such as a long axe shaft in this case, though you could easily apply it to sword hilts, terrain columns, l...

Black 2.0 - Worth the Hype?
I've seen a lot of questions about the validity of Black 2.0, supposedly "The world’s mattest, flattest, black art material" (According to their website .) and decided to order a bottle and find out the answer myself since most articles about this product a...
