'How I Paint' Series: Silver Tower, Gaunt Summoner


Finally onto the main man himself! Mr. Gaunt Summoner. I put this model off until last thinking it would be pretty difficult to do. Turns out with what I have learned with washes and glazes, it was pretty easy and quick to do. Here is How I Paint him.

Review: Beastclaw Raiders, Battletome

This is the next in the Series of reviews on the narrative gaming aspects of the battle tome books. By this I mean the battle plans, Path to Glory tables, battalions etc. If you are looking for more of a competitive gaming low down, I would recommend listening to FaceHammer and if you are looking for more of a background aspect, Mengelminiatures.com would be your best point of call.


Firstly, before I delve into the gaming aspects, I wanted to touch on the background to the book itself. If you haven't read it, do it, it is a great fresh take on a Faction that although received no new models, has been made viable and rich in story with some genius writing. The background covers how the Beastclaw tribes are forever being chased by the EverWinter because of a pact they made in times old.

'How I Paint' Series: Brayherd, Gors

Welcome to the first in the series, 'This is How I Brayherd'. I have decided to bite the bullet and go back to my first WHFB love.. The Beastmen! And specifically, Brayherd! The posts will probably be far between due to the amount of models in this army, 184 to be precise. But here is the first post which is the basis of the army, the Core. #EatBrayLove

Review: Stormcast Eternals, Battletome


Hi guys, I know this has been out a while but I am going to be working my way through the battle tomes and doing some reviews on the narrative gaming aspects of the books. By this I mean the battle plans, Path to Glory tables, battalions etc. If you are looking for more of a competitive gaming low down, I would recommend listening to FaceHammer and if you are looking for more of a background aspect, Mengelminiatures.com would be your best point of call.

The first thing I would always say when creating a Narrative army for gaming is work out the theme, work out their story and where they personally fit into the world. The Stormcast book is great for helping you with this, they have pages of Stormhosts, wit their little blurbs of where they fit. But of course, you could always create your own, Sigmar is constantly creating new Chambers and so why not have a custom paint themed host and create their story from there.

'How I Paint' Series: Silver Tower, Kairic Acolytes


Finally I get round to the Kairic Acolytes, I used a similar technique for their skin to which I done for my Fyreslayers and also Nurgle Rotbringers. But I do detail it all again below. These models are strange but because of their detail and definition they are a joy to paint! Here is 'How I Paint' them.

'How I Paint' Series: Silver Tower, Tzaangors


Good day everyone. So carrying on with my Silver Tower 'How I Paint' Series, today I have for you the Tzaangors, the Daemon Beastmen of the Arcanites. These miniatures are so ridiculously detailed, they are quite daunting to start, but, as you can see below with a few tricks they come together pretty quickly. Here is 'How I Paint' them.

'How I Paint' Series: Silver Tower, Skaven Deathrunner


So far in the Silver Tower series I have gone through techniques of using washes over white to achieve an instant cool definition for skin. Here I repeat that process and show you how you can achieve this using a wash to get good looking Caucasian skin tones. Again as before, I show you ways of painting miniatures fast but still looking great. Here is 'How I Paint' the Deathrunners.

'How I Paint' Series: Silver Tower, Ogroid Thaumaturge


Another day and another instalment of the Silver Tower Series. This time the beast of a model, the Ogroid Thaumaturge! I wanted to try and achieve a bit of a darker feel to this model than on the box art, it is a menacing looking model as you can see. Here is 'How I Paint' the Ogroid.
