We love the wargaming and miniature hobby. Even though many of us play wargames, like Warhammer 40K and Battlefleet Gothic, the hobby element is where we spend most of our time. Some of our authors even have 20+ years experience with the hobby. Between all of our authors, we create a lot of stuff. We may not be the best painters or sculptors, but we have a lot of experience, and it’s that experience we’re sharing with these tutorials. Odds are they won’t turn you into a Golden Daemon winning painter or anything, but they may help you get on that road by taking our experience and improving upon it.
So, here you will find an assorted list of miniature hobby tutorials. The articles range from creating wargaming terrain, like hills and trees, to doing basing on miniatures, such as realistic earth basing, or creating snow and ice. Each tutorial will walk you through the entire process. We will cover the materials you need for the project, and each step in the process is explained and shown. Each tutorial has a lot of pictures, making it easy for you to follow along. What we lack in quantity of hobby tutorials, we hopefully make up for in quality.
We are routinely adding new tutorials all the time so please check back often. If you’ve seen something we have done, and would like us to do a tutorial on it, then please let us know. Making tutorials takes a lot of time and effort, which we enjoy doing, but knowing what to create and present to you all is easier with some feedback on what you would love to see.
For years I admired those who could paint NMM (non metallic metal) while despising their ability to make it look easy. I told myself I preferred normal metallics, or even TMM (true metallic metal), but the reality was that I was jealous of their ability and afraid I couldn’t do it myself. Eventually I tried…
Right now the shop I play at is in its 5th season for the Blood Bowl league I run. The league started in 2016 and it has only gotten progressively better each and every season since it began. This lead me to think it might be worthwhile to write about what I’ve learned. Over those…
