ToP Tip: Make your own paint swatch to organise your paint collection
In this hobby hack, I’m going to share a few ideas to organise your paint collection by creating a self-made paint swatch. I made one for the 500+ colours I own and it has become an invaluable asset for paint scheme planning and visual referencing….
Showcase: Silver Skulls Primaris Intercessor Squad
One more squad in the service of the Emperor: I painted one more Primaris Intercessor to make a legal unit out of the four models I painted for my Silver Skulls Kill Team. I also updated the bases and refined a few details here and there. Check them out in this showcase post.
Showcase: Soulblight Gravelords Grave Guard with Great Wight Blades
It’s Soulblight week part two on Tale of Painters and today I’ll share a glimpse at my spin on the venerable Grave Guard kit. I’ve painted five skeletal warriors hailing from Neferata’s Legion of Blood, with a few subtle conversions and eye-catching Great Wight Blades burning from balefire.
Review: Citadel Colours Orruk Flesh, Thondia Brown & Hobgrot Hide
It has become a habit to support major miniature releases with a few complimentary Citadel Colours. For the new Kruleboyz faction introduced with the Age of Sigmar Dominion box set, Games Workshop came up with three new base paints: Orruk Flesh for painting light green skin, Thondia Brown for ragged leather hides, and Hobgrot Hide for sulphoric yellow skin. In this post, we take a look at each of the new paints and compare them to similar Citadel paints in a handy hand painted chart.
Showcase: Nighthaunt Guardian of Souls
Another addition to my Nighthaunt collection, the Guardian of Souls from the now out of print Soul Wars box. Probably one of my favourite models from the range, if not for that pesky sword arm that’s super easy to break! Check out more pictures in this post.
Tutorial: How to paint sickly green Servitor / Deadwalker Zombie skin
Sickly green skin is a characteristic feature of models such as Servitors, Deadwalker Zombies, Namarti Thralls, Nurglings, or Crypt Ghouls. In this easy to follow tutorial you’ll learn about the recipe I used for my Skitarii Rangers.

Review: Paint Blitzer by Unto the Breach Hobbies – the best paint stripper on the market?
Today we’ll review Mr. Mark Setter and Softer NEO from Japanese scale modelling brand Mr. Hobby, a two-product solution for perfectly conformed decals with a “painted on” look. Can these products affix a chapter icon to a curved shoulder pad with no wrinkles or bubbles? And how will they compare to Microsol from Microscale? Find out more in this review.
