Miniature Apocalypse is all about helping modelers get their figures built with a modicum of quality, on budget and on the table. Remember the game store wants your hard earned money, but they should deserve it before you hand it to them.

White Dwarf Vampire Slayer

It's been a very long time since I've taken it slow while painting a figure. I came across the white dwarf anniversary Grombrindal as a vampire slayer and I knew it deserves some love.

While cleaning this finecast figure I found so much character, I just couldn't wait to paint it. Unfortunately I've had no time to direct towards my painting. Painting figures is how I center myself, it's like I can de-stress and forget the world for a brief moment. I don't know about you but I find a state of mindfulness and calm when I'm building and painting. So many of my recent projects have been rushed. That said I was in a friend's store(my FLGS) called strategies when he handed me a pink paper with his painting competition rules. He told me I needed to enter. Everything came together for me, Grombrindal and some stress relief.

Still a long way to go but I promise this time you will get posts for the process.
Till next time, have fun and see you in the 4x8 arena.

1250pts of Sylvaneth in a day

So...I had a plan to build and paint a bunch of Sylvaneth....that didn't happen due to family emergency, personal injury(herniated disc) etc etc. I did manage to build 1240pts worth of Sylvaneth, I even got 3 games in with them (3wins).

Sylvaneth Age of Sigmar - 1 month challenge

I recently found myself with the means to purchase new army in one go. The Wife was tired of listening to me talk about the cool new Sylvaneth figures and "forced" me to buy them all. Or something to that effect. my goal is to build and paint the whole thing in one month. Lets see how this goes....

Dwarves of fire canyon - Chaos Dwarfs Review

(this awesome image is by artist Mikhail Savier)

I had been looking for Chaos Dwarfs since I started playing Age of Sigmar. Once I started looking around I found out there was no longer a regular GW plastic version(yes its been that long since i played fantasy). There is the forgeworld option but i'm not into bland troops for too much money... that's when I found a company called Russian Alternative.

Ale Guzzler Giant aka. Three Toe Willy

Savage Orcs, or Bonesplitterz(seriously Games Workshop) are an amusing force to play, but they lack heavy hitters....enter Three Toe Willy.

Taurox Prime - final construction & magnetized

I must admit this Tempestus Scion Taurox Prime Project has been fun. This kit really lends itself to manipulation. I decided to see if I could get all variants out of the box in one kit. my secret weapon ...Magnets/Plasticard.

Tempestus Scions new formation rules

I'll just leave this here...

Today we will be Pimping The Tempestus Scion Taurox/Taurox Prime into a half-track version. As we all know GW makes some pure genius figures and models, but that said, they also make some plastic paperweights.

Shoulder Marking for my legion the Spectral Hounds
Why are all marines male? this is the question I asked myself. I've been reading all the posts I could find and couldn't come up with a decent reason. So I did something about it...
