Reigniting The Passion

Reigniting the Passion

Everyone has their favorite army, or maybe their favorite handful of armies, that they continually return to and add units to. For many years earlier in my hobby journey this was Space Marines for 40k. Now, as you may know if you frequent my site, that passion is for all the Death armies in AoS, but what happens when you get burnt out on it?

Indomitus Necrons Done!

Indomitus Necrons Done

I have a confession to make. It's very rare for me to actually finish an entire half of a starter set for Warhammer or 40k, but I've recently finished all of the Necrons from the Indomitus box! Clocking in around 1,000 points, it's pretty much half an army too.

REVIEW: Tesseract Glow Technical Paint

Tesseract Glow Review

New paint releases from GW are one of the most exciting things to me. I love trying out new colors and techniques. Tesseract Glow is right up my alley, following in the legacy of Nihilakh Oxide as a technical paint that is great for glowing techniques. So, how does it measure up?

TUTORIAL: Making Broken Pillars

Making Broken Pillars

I'm a huge fan of making display boards for my armies, and so far two of them have included some kind of broken pillar. The broken pillar is a staple of both worlds of Warhammer in fact, and would be right at home in the scenery collection of any AoS or 40k player. Luckily there is a quick, and cost effective way to make these byproducts of a war torn environment.

The Value of Older Gaming Books

The Value of Older Gaming Books

The cycle of gaming books (Codexes, Battletomes, etc) is something familiar to any hobby veteran. The shelf life of any given book that contains rules is usually measured in a couple of years. Although the rules may get replaced, it doesn't mean your older book is no longer valuable.

Hobby Equilibrium


We've all focused a ton of time and attention onto just one army or one project to the detriment of others before. While this has the potential to be very productive, it can also lead to over saturation and hobby burn out. Over the last few months I've found myself hitting a sort of hobby equilibrium, the kind of opposite to burn out.

Space Marine Chapter Hesitancy Syndrome


Whenever I start a new army I face a small dilemma before painting them; do I make my own color scheme or follow one of the studio color schemes? Having started many projects over the years I've fallen on both sides of the fence on this, but I sometimes feel guilty if I don't come up with my own color scheme.

The Strange History of the Sons of Dorn


Almost everyone who has been in the hobby has collected Space Marines at some point, and of those people most of them will probably have created their own Chapter, even if it's just a one off miniature. When I did exactly that with my Sons of Dorn back in the mists of time there was no way I could have known the strange history they would embark upon.

The Myth of Modeling for Advantage


We've all heard the term "Modeling for Advantage" before when people talk about conversions, and yes, I'm sure there are some people who would actually do this. Is it really worth the trade off of the stigma this term can bring though?

Shade or Contrast Paint?


I'm a big fan of the Contrast paint range and what you can do with them. They have so many uses, from the one thick coat application, to glazes, to using them to shade a model. This does bring up the question though of Shade paints or Contrast paints? They both cover some of the same uses, so which should you use?

REVIEW: Warhammer Underworlds - Dreadfane


Out of all of the boxed games that were being produced for stores like Barnes and Noble in North America, Dreadfane was definitely the one I was most excited about. I love that it will make Underworlds more accessible to non-Warhammer players, and I also really love that the Nighthaunt are getting a new warband that will be usable in regular games of Underworlds.

Warhammer Underworlds: The Perfect Quarantine Game


I've dabbled in Warhammer Underworlds since the game first debuted with Shadespire. I've always enjoyed it, but it's unfortunately suffered due to any hobby/game time I did have being focused on Age of Sigmar more. Now with most of the world in isolation and when a return to gaming normalcy will happen being uncertain, Underworlds has gained a new level of appreciation from me.

The techniques are a bit more advanced, but I go through every step and color that I use!

Battle Report: Legions of Nagash vs Maggotkin of Nurgle


With everyone cooped up inside and being unable to play any regular games of Warhammer, I figured I'd try a solo battle report. My forces of Nurgle face off against the Legions of Nagash in Shyish in a 1,000 point battle. I wanted to give it a narrative flair and follow a lot of the ideas utilized in White Dwarf battle reports. Read on to find out who comes out triumphant in the Realm of Death.
