HORUS HERESY Sons of Horus Praetor full tutorial.

This was the heart of it, the soul of the old empire [Terra]… The galaxy was full of wonders, millions of them, but nothing truly compared to this place, even in its ruin. Warhawk, Chris Wraight. I got lucky with this. As did the gentlemen who were sent these instead of Malohgurst the twisted. A…

5 MUST HAVE paints?

What are the must-have colours you need to create your art? Every artist has go-to colours. Those slippery eels manage to worm their way onto your palette no matter the project.

CRIMSON COURT Vellas Von Faine Commission.

Halloween is a time of subversion. When the usual norms are upended, even if it is for one night. When a lord can dress as a peasant, a man as a woman, a politician as an honest man. We can all break societal norms without transgressing them for good. We can cross that line without…

KROGALL TEAM MARKER. Greebo Games Lizardmen Blood Bowl Commission.

The most important part of painting any Blood Bowl team – the extras! This is one of the tokens you can buy from Greebo games and is great to replace the plastic turn or reroll markers that come with the base game. And like the rest of the miniatures these are metal.

TAAMUT, THE FANGED KING. TAAMUT, THE FANGED KING.

And it’s not a bad mini to boot. Recently I put up a poll on Instagram looking for miniature companies that weren’t GW. Greebo…
