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.
Showcase: Masters of the Universe Battleground boxed game (incl. painting guides)
This blog post is a round up of 4 weeks’ worth of work painting my Masters of the Universe Battleground Starter Set from Archon Studio. I’ve created painting guides for every model including the terrain pieces and photographed them in stunning scenes. So hold onto your furry underwear, this going to be a good one!
Review: New formula Citadel 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?
Tutorial: How to paint Blood Angels Assault Intercessors
In this post, I’ll show you how to paint your Blood Angels Space Marines in a scheme reminiscent to their vintage orangey armoured 1980s cousins.

Tutorial: How to paint brass and verdigris
I got quite a few questions about how I painted the armour on my Grave Guard, so I wrote this little tutorial for you. Learn how to paint a reddish copper/brass tone with a subtle verdigris effect in this easy-to-follow painting guide.
Showcase: Adeptus Titanicus Warhound Titans
Hi Everyone, it’s Tom again. You may remember me from my post about Lord-Commander Bastian Carthalos a few weeks ago. This time I am here to write about something both bigger and smaller – my Legio Xestobaix Warhound Titans.
Showcase: Maggotkin of Nurgle Spoilpox Scrivener (incl. painting guide)
I’m trying something old and new today. The old is sharing a pic of the Spoilpox Scrivener battling the Soulblight Gravelords in a picturesque 1990s Warhammer Fantasy Battle setting. The only thing missing is the square bases! If you weren’t around for Warhammer in the 90s then you wouldn’t know that every photo in White Dwarf was this. Rolling green hills, lush trees and terrain made from polyfilla and cardboard. Even the 40k pictures looked the same. It was awesome!
Tutorial: How to paint grimdark Sons of Horus MkVI Space Marines
In this tutorial, I show you how to paint the MkVI Space Marines from the Age of Darkness box as “grimdark” Sons of Horus, with lots of weathering and battle damage. The whole paint scheme goes pretty fast with under 60 minutes for one model, and (almost) completely avoids edge highlights! And the best thing is that this tutorial can be adapted for any Legion or Chapter, you just have to change the colour of the armour. Let’s go.
Review: Kratos Heavy Assault Tank
The Kratos is a new, never-before-seen Heavy Assault Tank from the early hours of the Horus Heresy, now available as a model for the first time, and then in all plastic too! In this review we look at all the sprue, check how well it magnetises and do a size comparison.
