Review: Warpaints Air by The Army Painter
The Army Painter have been very busy lately: After the new Metallic and Skin Tones paint sets, the Gamemaster series and some licensed paint sets, now follows a paint range specially tailored for airbrushing – with a whopping 150 colours.

Video Showcase: Space Marine Heroes Series 1
I thought celebrating 10 years of Tale of Painters would be the perfect occasion to finally make one of the announcements from my 2021 hobby resolutions come true and launch my YouTube channel with my first ever video: an epic showcase for my Space Marine…
Showcase: Kill Team Combat Gauges (incl. paint recipes)
I like to play in style, so I thought of giving the combat gauges from the Kill Team: Octarius and Essentials boxes a lick of paint. Maybe this post will inspire you to do the same – I promise it’s fast and easy to do, and I included the paint recipes I used in this post, so check it out.
Showcase: Necron Warrior (incl. paint recipes)
To prepare for the Necron models in Warhammer 40.000: Imperium, I painted a Necron Warrior test model to come up with a new paint scheme. Here comes the result, and if this model inspires you to do a similar scheme, I included the paint recipes in this post.

Review: Skin Tones Paint Set by The Army Painter
Do you want to paint more diverse skin tones, but don’t know where to start? Then the new Skin Tones Paint Set from The Army Painter might be just what you need. 9 new shades, 3 new washes, and 3 new pigment toners cover all skin tones from light to dark. The selection of colours was developed together with actual people of colour. In this review, we take a look at whether the set delivers what it promises.
