Godtear Quick Reference Sheet

I’m looking forward to playing Godtear by Steamforged Games. The starter boxes are an amazing deal – they’re ready for 2 players, but you’ll be playing a single faction per side only. A starter box is more practically a starter for one player. Inside you’ll get: 1 double sided battlefield board – cool Two completeContinue reading “Godtear Quick Reference Sheet”

Runewars Miniatures Paint Schemes: the Daqan Models

Just starting into the Runewars Miniatures Game. I like its take on Terrinoth, which I have always been a fan of, and its models. The core box gives you quite a lot of good models for the Daqan Lords, which I have really enjoyed painting – just like the Waiqar models, their detail is raisedContinue reading “Runewars Miniatures Paint Schemes: the Daqan Models”

Runewars Miniatures Paint Schemes: the Waiqar Models

Just starting into the Runewars Miniatures Game. I like its take on Terrinoth, which I have always been a fan of, and its models. FFG has taken units like the Waiqar Reanimate soldiers below, and made them so easy to paint – with their raised surfaces and open poses – not to mention excellent sculpts.Continue reading “Runewars Miniatures Paint Schemes: the Waiqar Models”

Firestorm Taskforce Quick Reference Sheet is Online

For all you Firestorm Taskforce fans out there – I’ve just completed my Battlemind 1.0 version of a Quick Reference Sheet for Firestorm Taskforce, by Spartan Games. I thought I’d condense the main rules of the game into 2 pages. This is the first page – and by far the most important. I’ll make aContinue reading “Firestorm Taskforce Quick Reference Sheet is Online”

Painting Halo Fleet Battles – Part 2

When I started painting the Covenant fleet from Halo Fleet Battles, I experimented with 6 different painting styles, and major colour variations. In the end I went with a straight up purple paint (from Vallejo) applied overtop of silver washed with GW Druchii Violet. You can see how the violet ink wash over silver givesContinue reading “Painting Halo Fleet Battles – Part 2”

Painting Halo Fleet Battles – Part 1

I have to say that I’m very impressed with Spartan Games’ Halo Fleet Battles miniature game. I caved into buying it because I love Spartan minis – and especially these Halo models – and had seen some good mechanics demonstrated on the Fleet Signal YouTube channel. (Thanks Alex!) Up front, I’ll let you know thatContinue reading “Painting Halo Fleet Battles – Part 1”

Operation Icestorm Nomads Painted

So after much deliberation, I chose GW’s Evil Sunz Scarlet as my base colour for Jon’s Operation Icestorm Nomads. This base colour was washed with an old bottle of GW Red Wash mixed with GW’s new Nuln Oil. This darkened down the red enough that it wasn’t a freakin’ candy red, but still light enoughContinue reading “Operation Icestorm Nomads Painted”

Operation Icestorm Pan Oceania Painted

My friend Jon asked me if I would paint his Pan Oceania models from the Operation Icestorm box he bought. He’s really keen to start playing, but has no time to paint them up. No problem – love the models, want to encourage new opponents – win/win. Below is the near final paint job: I’mContinue reading “Operation Icestorm Pan Oceania Painted”
