Review: Warcolours Nostalgia 94 paints
Oldhammer fans rejoice, you can now paint like it’s 1994 again! Warcolours’ Nostalgia 94 range is designed to recreate the colours and feeling of the Citadel paint range of the late 90s. Since then, miniature paints have made quite some progress, so I’m curious whether nostalgia paints can keep up with modern paint ranges or not.
Review: All “one coat” Contrast paints ranked
For a few years now, one coat paints like Citadel Contrast are all the rage now. In this video I rank and review all one coat paints currently on the market, and help you find an answer to the question of which Contrast-style paint is the best paint for your painting style.
Review: The Army Painter Speedpaint 2.0 – finally fixed?
Speedpaints are loved by some for their unique blending properties. Others hate that the paints reactivate and bleed through subsequent layers of paint. The Army Painter were faced with the difficult task of satisfying both camps and sought the help of three of YouTube’s most popular hobby channels. Is the new 2.0 formula a solid improvement or the worst of both worlds? And are the metallic Speedpaints as underwhelming as some of the promo shots make them to be? I’ll find out in this hands-on Speedpaint 2.0 review.
Review: Vallejo Xpress Color – copycat or Contrast slayer?
Contrast, Instant Colors, Speedpaint, Dipping Inks, and more Contrast – I reviewed them all. And now we have Vallejo entering the game with their brand-new Xpress Colors. Do these bring something new to the table or are they yet another half-baked Contrast rehash? I’ll find an answer in this complete review of all 23 Xpress Colors.
Review: All 60 Two Thin Coats paints by Duncan Rhodes
Duncan Rhodes’ Two Thin Coats paints. What started as a meme has now become a fully-fledged 60 colours paint range, thanks to Kickstarter and the power of the internet. But do we really need yet another paint range? Can Duncan reinvent the wheel or are his paints just a cash grab to exploit his popularity? I’ll find out in this in-depth review of all 60 Two Thin Coats paints.
Review: The Army Painter Greedy Gold Colour Primer – the best gold spray yet?
The Army Painter updated their Colour Primer range, amongst the new colours their first ever gold spray paint with a Colour Primer version of their Greedy Gold Warpaint. I was allowed to review the final prototype, and since gold spray paints with good value for money are hard to come by, I was very curious to see what The Army Painter had developed. Could it be the best gold spray paint on the market yet? We find out in this review.
Review: Green Stuff World Dipping Inks – the 60ml Contrast killer?
Today I’m going to review Green Stuff World’s brand new Dipping Inks, yet another Citadel Contrast “clone”. What makes them special is their size: The paints come in large 60ml bottles, which is more than three times the capacity of a pot of Citadel Contrast, and that for an RRP of 5.75 €. More paint for less money, sounds too good to be true? Let’s take a closer look if these new Dipping Inks are worth it or not.

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.
