Every year I sit and look at the pictures from events such as Games Workshop’s Golden Demon awards or Mantic’s Brush with Death and I am always suitably impressed with the quality of the work. The fine details that some painters are able to achieve astound me even after 25+ years of gaming. Across the internet, we as gamers are bombarded with pictures of other people’s models, even some from the august members of this very blog. Just in the last few weeks we have seen the impressive work on the real scale Space Marines of atbzimark. Continue reading In defence of table-top grade painting
Hi all, last week I shared my method for making the torso’s and legs for Art-Scale Marines. In case you missed it you should certainly check it out here. Once you’ve finished with that come back here and learn how I do arms and see the almost finished Marines in the flesh.
Sorry that I’ve been absent for a few weeks. Real life has been absurdly busy and that’s left little time for projects unfortunately and even less to type about it! So what was going to be a short but challenging project to build some art-scale Grey Hunters has been dragged out for quite some time now.
You’ll always get those moments with bits of terrain when you look at them and think that’s not that special, but I guess it’ll do.

Science fiction is most certainly my bag (in case you hadn’t noticed) and the miniatures of Anvil Industry certainly tick that box. Not only do they make superb resin models and bases in the genre I enjoy most but they are behind their own near-future wargame Afterlife.
I return with news of further construction and eight more legionaries being painted. The main focus has been these guys…
Ok so they’re not even a little bit midnight yet but I couldn’t resist gluing up my Night Raptor conversions!
