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
This week Warlord Games have announce the release of the very first Paint Sets for Beyond the Gates of Antares. They consulted studio painter Andrés, to get his suggested paints for those wishing to recreate the colour schemes used by the Warlord design studio…
