In this post, I’m going to teach you how to paint my grim black-and-grey Death Korps of Krieg paint scheme.

Tutorial: 2 (+2) quick and easy ways to paint Ork/Orruk flesh
In this post I’ll teach you two quick and straight-forward techniques for painting Ork (or Orruk) flesh: One is based on the new Orruk Flesh base paint, while the other uses a combination of Contrast and traditional painting to create a great result without spending hours on blending or shading. I’ll also add links to two more Ork tutorials for even more ideas to paint your new Beast Snaggaz, Kommandos, or Kruleboyz.
Review: Kill Team: Octarius starter set (first impressions & unboxing)
Saturday. We received the enormous box set early and take a look at all of its components, including the new Death Korps and Ork Kommando models, and the Ork scrap town terrain pieces.

Showcase: Watch Captain Halgrim from Cursed City
Since I’ve painted a few Grave Guard a while ago, I thought it would be nice to paint someone to lead them into battle. Watch Captain Halgrim has such a strong and powerful pose, I’m happy I bought him from ebay before Cursed City disappeared forever in the immaterium. More pictures of my version of Halgrim in this post.
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.
