Ironically Jimmi pointed out the other day that this post has been sat in the draft section for several months. From time to time we all loose the burning hobby fire and that’s OK but here are a few thoughts on how to get it going again….
So a quick review here of the UK Games Expo (UKGE). Jimmi and I took a trip down from Sheffield to visit the NEC in Birmingham, home to the UKGE.
Hello again and welcome to another quick tutorial, this time on stippling. Stippling is a great technique for transitioning colours with a brush, in a similar way to an airbrush and also allows you to convey rougher textures to your minis.
Many of us are trying to balance our hobby time with the pressures of real world life. One of the biggest pressures, for me anyway, is finding time to paint and play while also looking after two little girls with my wife. Having hobby time is important though, it keeps me connected to the community and it gives me a way of unwinding from the day of screaming and nappy changes. So here are my 5 top tips on how to get some painting time in.

So this is a follow up article to the previous on the AoS skirmish game. Jimmi and Myself had a quick game of it last week, pitting the forces of Death against the might of the Stormcast externals. We played the fog of war battle plan from the main rule book. In this game our forces are distributed randomly across the battle field and line of sight is limited.
Lovely title here to discuss a quick way of painting the featuring boils that adorne our models. It’s moments like this you begin to realise how bizarrely fantastic our hobby can be at times. Anyway on with the show and as always when looking at how best to paint something the easiest way is to observe how it looks in reality. Now you may have your own fine collection of scabby blisters or have child covered in the pox from which to draw inspiration but otherwise it may on reflection be a bit tricky to follow this rule in this situation. People tend to get quite upset if you stare at their scabby bits and i wouldnt advise you taking a stroll through your local infectious diseases ward. However inspiration is but a quick google search away and use of online resources like the wonderful DermnetNZ can provide for all your colourful pox picture needs (please don’t use to self diagnose or if of a hypercondriachal disposition!) (lol Ed).
Hi Folks, John here.
A while ago I had mentioned that I was looking forward to the release of Games Workshop’s Age of Sigmar Skirmish rules. Well lo and behold it arrived this weekend so thought I’d take a quick peak.
