Let's enjoy wargaming as a fun, social, laid-back hobby! Farseer Khaiell

I enjoy nicely painted miniatures but I don't care for miniature painting as a fine art. I prefer a smart theme before NMM.

I give kudos to master painters and successful generals of the hour and go back to having fun with the hobby! — Khaiell

Originally designed to fill gaps in failed finecast miniatures it does a really bad job at that. However it works great for adding texture to models and fixing problems with the "Chinese import" quality Games Workshop terrain »

Every wargame enthusiast feels an urge at some point to participate in a huge battle. Such an event is something nice to have experience participating in but ultimately it is the stuff the dreams are made of - not something you really want or need in your life. Nevertheless I will give you a survival guide should you go for it. »

Horses show a large variety of coat colours, much like human hair. Note however that in contrast to hominids they can have contrasting points of different colour: mane, tail and lower legs ("socks") »

Medieval and Renaissance cannons were made of bronze and so were, well, bronze in colour. But what shade of brown is that really? I took some measurements on real specimens and this is what I found in downtown Geneva. »

You won't believe this simple trick top painters use to paint entire daemon army in one evening! Just kidding. It's 7 easy steps instead ;-) »

A lot of fantasy and dark SF models and buildings are decorated with parchments covered in blackletter, Gothic script. Is this something rooted in real medieval art? Oh yes! But please use the real historical "fonts" and not a contemporary wedding invitation blasphemy »

Most fantasy and SF wargames are accused of being nothing more than glorified dice games. Whether this is true or not, dice are really the number one game pieces you will hold in your hand. They better be good then! The new dice from GW are great - if you handle them right, that is. »
