Tutorial: How to paint The Blooded Traitor Guard from Kill Team: Moroch
In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to paint The Blooded, the Traitor Guard from Kill Team: Moroch (or Blackstone Fortress). The flexible paint scheme is easily adaptable to Chaos Cultists like the new Accursed Cultists that are up for preorder today, and to loyal Astra Militarum Guardsmen as well. I made use of a lot of the new Contrast and Shade paints to get a better feeling for them and sneaked in a few Scale75 Instant Colours as well, so this is gonna get interesting.
Review: Age of Sigmar Arcane Cataclysm Battlebox
Today I review and unbox Arcane Cataclysm, the latest entry in the series of Age of Sigmar battleboxes. Lumineth Realm-lords face the Disciples of Tzeentch, when magical hosts duel in the ruins of eldritch war. Let’s find out more about the two exclusive models and whether the box is a good deal or not.
Showcase: Sons of Horus Kratos Heavy Assault Tank
One of the most popular models of the new edition of Warhammer: The Horus Heresy was without a doubt the Kratos Heavy Assault Tank. This massive behemoth of a tank closes the gap between the Sicaran Battle Tank and the Fellblade, and the kit is a real treat for any treadhead. I couldn’t imagine a better model to kick off my Sons of Horus collection, so enjoy a few pictures of my very own Kratos in this post.
Review: Horus Heresy Leviathan Dreadnought with ranged weapons
After the plastic close combat Leviathan has taken the hearts of hobbyists by storm, now comes the Leviathan Siege Dreadnought with ranged weapons.

Review: Horus Heresy Sicaran Battle Tank (plastic)
Vroom vroom! The plastic Sicaran Battle Tank enters the battlefield of the Age of Darkness. This high-speed destroyer tank was designed by Ferrus Manus and Guilliman to outflank slower vehicles and has become a fan-favourite for its potent accelerator autocannon and unique design that is so different from the classic Rhino and Land Raider hull based Space Marine tanks. In this review, we’ll check if Games Workshop has managed to translate the model faithfully into plastic or if some corners had to be cut.
Review: Green Stuff World Dipping Inks – the 60ml Contrast killer?
Today I’m going to review Green Stuff World’s brand new Dipping Inks, yet another Citadel Contrast “clone”. What makes them special is their size: The paints come in large 60ml bottles, which is more than three times the capacity of a pot of Citadel Contrast, and that for an RRP of 5.75 €. More paint for less money, sounds too good to be true? Let’s take a closer look if these new Dipping Inks are worth it or not.
