Retro review: The 1998 – 2012 Citadel Colour range
Do you remember the previous Citadel paint range? While many fondly recall the iconic white flip-top Citadel Colour paints of the late 80s and early 90s, it seems that people are less enthusiastic about the paint range of the 2000s. However, this range introduced revolutionary concepts like ready-made washes and extra high-opacity “Foundation” paints. In this video I delve into Games Workshop’s former Citadel Colour range and explore if they still have their place in today’s hobby or are better left forgotten.
Review: Warcry: Crypt of Blood starter set
Similar to Kill Team before it, Warcry, the skirmish offshoot of Warhammer Age of Sigmar, now also receives a compact starter box. However, it’s surprising that the set doesn’t include models or terrain pieces from the original Warcry launch box. Instead, it features two recycled Warhammer: Underworlds warbands combined with a new set of graveyard scenery. In my review, I’ll explain whether Warcry: Crypt of Blood is worth it or not.
Review: TTCombat Paints & Washes
It doesn’t get boring on the miniature paint market! Among the recent arrivals of new paint ranges, TTCombat (renowned for their MDF terrain and games like Dropzone Commander and Carnevale) has joined the fray by introducing a brand-new line of paints through a Kickstarter campaign. With an extensive collection of 72 colours and washes, these paints are promoted as being exceptionally high-quality and opaque, particularly their metallic range. In this honest review, I’ll determine if these claims hold true.
Short review: Green Stuff World Wet Palette
It’s summer, temperatures are rising year after year, and paint dries away from you faster than you can get it on the model. Time for a wet palette. Green Stuff World has a particularly inexpensive model on offer, but do you have to sacrifice quality for that? I answer that question in this review of Green Stuff World’s wet palette.
Short review: Liquid Pigments from Green Stuff World
Creating weathering effects with the help of pigments but without all the mess and dust that they usually leave on the desk? Green Stuff World promises this and more with their Liquid Pigments range, which I review in today’s review. Spoiler: If you like Nihilakh Oxide from the Citadel Colour range, then scroll down and find out more.
Short review: Dawnbringers box sets
A new Season of Warhammer Age of Sigmar begins with a new narrative series, Dawnbringers, which tells of the beginnings of Sigmar’s Twin-tailed Crusade. To coincide with Book 1, four new boxes are released, each forming a Regiment of Renown and a new miniature for their faction: Phlugoth’s Shudderhood, Braggit’s Bottle-snatchaz, Fjori’s Flamebearers, and Jerrion’s Delegation.
