The Chaos Daemons codex contains many headquarters choices that do not yet have a model.  Thanks to eBay and some putty, a solution is never far-off!

An Apocalyptic Black Friday

I finally got to take my Reaver Titan into a game!  Today some friends and I got an Apocalypse game in at my local gaming store, Mighty Titans.  Did I mention that melta-cannons fire a ten inch template?

Renegade Ogryn Transport

How six Ogryn will fit in a standard Chimera is anyone's guess.  I wanted my own transport to have a little extra leg room...

The Blue Scribes, and Why You Should Study the Product Range

My Pal Ku'Gath: Painting a Forge World Nurgle Daemon Prince

"The Man" would have you believe that all of Nurgle's followers are green or brown.  As you can see, my own avatars of un-death are typically of a more crimson hue.  Recipe incoming!

Today's Special: Forge World Renegade Ogryn

Everyone knows that Ogryn are not a competitive unit choice.  It's really too bad, because the Forgeworld Renegade Ogryn models are fantastic!

From my head, to the gaming table: A Copycat's Struggle.

With a product line as vast as Games Workshop's, it is easy to find inspiration.  But then how do we move forward when our inspirations lie elsewhere?  A few words on the unforeseen pitfalls of "borrowed" iconography to follow...

A Khorne Daemon prince, or, How to Plunder Your Failed Army Collections

We all have a "box of shame", filled with miniatures long since abandoned.  Projects that never got past the 30th page of a codex, or a half-painted HQ choice.  Is there no salvation?  Is there balm in Gilead?

Does Rotting Flesh tan, or just burn?

When finally painting the infantry models in my Vraksian Renegade Militia, I encountered a serious issue.  How was I going to paint gas masks, without turning the infantry into a bland mess?  Color recipes incoming!
