Review: Warpaints Fanatic by The Army Painter – best paints in the world?
This is an honest and unbiased review of the new Warpaints Fanatic. If there is one thing that The Army Painter is good at, then it’s generating buzz on social media. However, I found that their quality control can be hit or miss.

I tried all 216 colours of the new range, and I’ll tell you if The Army Painter can live up to their promises.

Review: AK Interactive Deep Shade acrylic washes
A lot of people didn’t like it when Games Workshop changed the formula of their Shade paints and reduced the size of the pots.

Review: PK-PRO WhiteLine MC1 Drybrushes
Drybrushes with round, conical brush heads have become a hobby staple since Artis Opus popularised this type of brush a couple of years ago. Now the German online shop PK-Pro has launched their own version with their WhiteLine MC1 drybrushes. In this review, we take a closer look at their new brushes.

In this review, I’ll be taking you through the entire ProAcryl range, with a special focus on the Signature Series. Is this paint range truly living up to the hype or are you just getting influenced?
