In defence of table-top grade painting

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

Terrain Corner – River Sections

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.  I used to be very much like that and it’s been more about getting stuff on the table and playing games than the elements behind the scene like terrain.  But as some of you may have seen in my other articles I’ve been slowly trying to up my game.

Terrain Corner – Display Board

With my other Terrain articles I’ve been aiming for an end product that has some use when gaming.  So the Trees and Asteroids have a purpose, the piece this time doesn’t really have a purpose in any game and it’s all for show.

When your out doing demo’s it’s really nice to have something for the mini’s your using to sit on.  Whilst a nice glass cabinet is great, it’s a bit much to drag around to places that I’m just doing a demo at.  After seeing Mark’s Armies on Parade post it reminded me that my current display board was not only a little small for my expanding force but very bland.  It’s just a piece of a very old Zuzzy matt dry brushed and stuck on some blue foam.
