I am quite excited by this bit of news… Black Sun Miniatures is a new miniature company that is about to start releasing some really wonderful miniatures which really suit my tastes for leather clad, muscle bound behemoths. What makes it even more exciting is that they appear to be 3 different scales coming out – 35mm, … More Black Sun Miniatures
I’ve painted a few Hasslefree Miniatures in my time, and one recurring theme with every one is how crisp and clean and beautifully detailed Kev White’s sculpting is. This makes them perfect for pushing your blending skills, or in my case continuing my journey into the realms of ‘The Loaded Brush’ wet on wet blending.
The guys at Ax Faction are at Figureworld in Oundle this weekend and they have a new release to coincide with the event. Cue stage left, Nemesis a classic, incense swinging, scythe wielding, evil necromantic type.
Some of you may have seen this guys progress over on Facebook, but now that he is done, I wanted to share him here too!

Since picking it up at Salute in April, I have had a guilty pleasure lurking on my painting table, picked up and put down between commissions and Space Marines – (another) Big Boris Mk III! I am most definitely a Big Boris Addict as he is so much fun to paint. He has … More Hello, my name is Peter and I’m a Big Boris Addict
Anyone who has read my post about Big Boris will know that I have a real soft spot for that burly barbarian and really everything that Heresy Miniatures produce tends to ring some kind of bell with me… it has that tongue in cheek retro dungeoneering feel that I love, and enough bad-assery to keep me … More Another crowdfunder that has my attention – Heresy Kickstarter
The step-by step of the Gilded Saint is now complete! So the mammoth project of documenting and photographing every stage in a paint-job has drawn to a close, and I can now share the finished photos.
The current project I am working on is a Banelegions model ‘Ulric the Defiler’, basically a hulking chaos cultist type with a demonic axe. I picked this up many moons ago, I think it was when Banelegions first came on the market but have only just got round to painting it (A bit like the … More Banelegions – Ulric the Defiler in progress
