Showcase: Alpha Legion Chaos Space Marine Legionary
As the Chaos Space Marine Legionaries from Kill Team: Nachmund will be released separately this week, I thought this would be the perfect occasion to get going with my Alpha Legion Kill Team. Here comes the first test model, a Legionary gunner, armed with a plasma gun, and painted with a metallic green-blue paint scheme inspired by their Heresy era appearance.
Review: Colour Forge Spray Primers – more paint for less & matched to Citadel Colours
Do you like Citadel spray paints and primers but wish there were more of them and they were cheaper? Then check out The Colour Forge. In this review, we’re testing their spray paints range, which not only offers a huge range of 23 colours, all matched to Citadel Colour paints, but also offers 100ml more paint per can than other brands!
Review: Wolf Bristle Brushes Set by Chronicle Cards
We all are familiar with sable, goat hair, and synthetic bristles for our miniature painting brushes. But why not… wolf bristles? Chronicle Cards has a beautifully made brush set with ten brushes from size 000 to 7, with rosewood handles and responsibly sourced wolf fibre. In this review, I’ll find out if the quality and longevity are up to high-quality Kolinsky sable.

In this post, I’ll show you how to make your own rocky outcrops, hills, crags, cliffs for use in your table top war games using readily available materials such as cardboard and plaster cloth.

Review: The 25 new Citadel Contrast Colours
In this review we take a look at the 25 new Contrast paints, find out what these very flat-looking colours like Bad Moon Yellow, Magmadroth Flame, Baal Red and Doomfire Magenta are all about, and then there’s even a hand-painted comparison of all 61 Contrast colours. It’s the biggest paint launch of the year, so let’s jump right into it.
Showcase: Imperial Fists MkVI Legionary (incl. painting guides)
Here is one of the new MkVI Space Marines from the Horus Heresy Age of Darkness box set, speedpainted as an Imperial Fist in under 50 minutes with loads of weathering and battle damage. In this post, I share a few more shots and explain the painting process.
First impression: White Scar spray primer (replacing Corax White)
Short news update: Games Workshop will stop producing Corax White Spray paint and replace it with the new White Scar spray. And that’s already happening in a few weeks when the 25 new Contrast colours and the revised Shade Paints are released.
Review: New formula Shade paints – better or just smaller pots?
Games Workshop is about to rework their Shade Paints range with 7 new colours, better flow properties, and 18 ml pots like Citadel Contrast. I was allowed to try the new Shade paints before anyone else – are they really an improvement or just the same product in a smaller pot?
Showcase: Necromunda Orlock Outrider Quads (incl. painting guide)
Wheel-spinning out of Necromunda’s Ash Wastes are my Orlock Outrider Quads! These models were only meant to be background props for my Ridgehauler Cargo-8 Warhammer Community article Games Workshop asked me to do. I painted the Outrider Quads with really fast techniques (recipe card below) and now I’m thinking I quite like them and wouldn’t mind starting an Orlock Ash Wastes Gang.
