Showcase: Soulblight Gravelords Fell Bats (inc. painting guide)
When I wrote my recap of last year, I realized I haven’t painted anything for my Soulblight Gravelords and Nighthaunt collection in ages. I had a box of the new plastic Fell Bats sitting on my shelf for ages, so I thought I would give them a go. I got a Vargskyr from Cursed City, which I also want to paint at some point, so these Fell Bats are kind of test models for the scheme I planned for it.
Review: Orks Boarding Patrol (incl. Boss Snikrot)

In today’s review, we take a closer look at the new T’au Empire Boarding Patrol box, which contains the new plastic Commander Farsight. Let’s see if his brand-new XV-86 Supernova battlesuit makes this model a worthy upgrade or not.
Review: The Army Painter Speedpaint 2.0 – finally fixed?
Speedpaints are loved by some for their unique blending properties. Others hate that the paints reactivate and bleed through subsequent layers of paint. The Army Painter were faced with the difficult task of satisfying both camps and sought the help of three of YouTube’s most popular hobby channels. Is the new 2.0 formula a solid improvement or the worst of both worlds? And are the metallic Speedpaints as underwhelming as some of the promo shots make them to be? I’ll find out in this hands-on Speedpaint 2.0 review.

In the third chapter in the Arks of Omen saga, Vashtorr the Arkifane lays siege to the Rock.

Stahly’s best nippers & sprue cutters for Warhammer & scale modelling
Are you one of those who have been using the same old sprue cutter for years? Maybe a starter set Citadel cutter, a cheap pair of The Army Painter nippers or a no-name product from the hardware store? I plead guilty. When I finally invested in a higher-quality sprue cutter the difference was like night and day. In this post, I share my best nippers & sprue cutters that I have tested over the past few years.
