Bringing Sexy Back – Wargaming Bloggers Showcase #39

If you’re new here, the Wargaming Bloggers Showcase is where I feature articles by fellow bloggers that I feel deserve your attention. They are great articles, great painting features, that should be read by everyone.

Without further ado, here we go. A Goblin and His Pet 3: Screw It, It’s Finished

GoblinI saw this last month and really liked it. I’m not sure where this model is from, or for what game, but it doesn’t matter because the paint job is great. Between the metal armor, the depth to the skin, and the blending of colors on the mount itself, it’s fantastic. The basing Nils does is always great as well.

On a related note, you folks really should follow Nils’ work on his blog. He’s always painting very interesting miniatures, and does really nice work, hence him being featured on here quite a few times.

Wargaming Tradecraft: Spray Priming Miniatures

Spray PrimingDave is always putting up useful tutorials on Wargaming Tradecraft. Here’s another one of his tutorials, and this one covers how to properly spray prime your miniatures. It’s aimed at newer painters, but who knows, you might learn something as a veteran.

This is well worth the watch for any beginners. It’s under 5 minutes in length – the video, and teaches you everything you really need to know to successfully prime your figures.

On a related note, I just did an article on how to fix fuzzy primer problems. Nurgle Daemonic Skin

Nurgle SkinThis is an old article. Well, old as far as the internet goes. It’s from four years ago, and I stumbled on it while on Pinterest.

Anyway, this is possibly the coolest method for creating daemonic skin I’ve seen to date. It’s super simple to do – way easier than sculpting, and creates an extremely convincing effect. Once you see the end result all painted up, it’s stunning. I’m actually anxious to try this out. I just have to find a model in need of some daemonic skin…

Objective Secured: Harlequin Carnival – La Danse Macabre Full Army Shots

CarnivalNafNaf being featured on here is nothing new. I’ve shown his continued progress on his Eldar/Dark Eldar army, La Danse Macabre, countless times. He lovingly converts and sculpts every single model in the army. That takes a ton of motivation, that’s for sure.

Well, this time NafNaf took a shot of his army competition to date. It’s a sight to behold. Seeing all those units put together in one shot is awesome.



I began playing Warhammer 40K in 2006, and have been an avid player and hobbyist since then. I have also been blogging about 40K for almost as long as I've been playing it, having started Creative Twilight in 2009.

  • Some nice articles there but the stand out is finally getting pictures from Nafnaf of the full army. So good.

    • It’s always so awesome to put your painted army together. We all work on a unit at a time, one model at a time. Seeing it all together really drives home all the work we put into our armies. Of course, NafNaf’s army is amazing anyway, so a group shot is impressive for sure.

  • Thank you very much for including me in the feature and the kind words, sure made my day much better :)

    The miniature is from Infamy Miniature, it’s part of their One-Shot range. They aren’t for a specific game but I can see it being used as a cool alternative model for an orc general or something like that. The size I believe is around 50mm in height.

    That Harlequin army… just WOW! Makes me almost want to dig up my old 2nd Ed Harlequin army.

    • I’ll definitely check those out. There’s so many great 3rd party models these days. We’re kind of spoiled for choices.

  • Awesome thanks for the mention :). Really pleased the pics have recieved such a positive response

    • Can’t imagine why people would be liking the army pics. I mean, it’s not like it’s a cool army or anything ;)

    • It’s definitely the coolest army I’ve seen this year.
