Hi guys, welcome to another step-by-step painting guide. This time for WW2 German army (Heer) infantry of the years of the war. This guide is a little different to how I usually do them, instead of painting a group of models from beginning to end, the guide is broken up into the different parts of the model, but is still step by step. This should allow you to paint your late war German infantry, no matter what variation of uniform they have.
If you want a rule set that provides a tactical squad level experience using historic doctrine and Tables of Organization and Equipment to provide an accurate, yet fluid, representation of World War 2 combat, look no further! Join Dan Warner as he reviews the Ultracombat Normandy Rulebook
Today is the final Part in Tyler’s Terracotta Warriors Army Project, this is where it all comes together and all the minis are painted! Check out the WatchfuliStudio army in its full completed glory and keep an eye out of the Kickstarter on April 18th! Thanks for following along on this adventure, we hope you enjoy the final product!
Gather ‘round, gather ‘round! Pull up a chair and serve yourself a cuppa. It’s hump day once again! Get your camels ready! (Just kidding, but seriously google the story about the chap walking his pet camel into a pet store!) That means it’s time again for another Wishlist Wednesday! So fluff your humps, get comfy, and have a read through!
Join Casey as he takes a look through the Warlord Games Cruel Seas “Strike Hard Strike Fast” Starter set! 1/300 adventures on the high seas with some incredibly detailed boats and terrain! He takes a good poke around in the box and shows us what is in there!
This episode I talk to Dan about all of the reasons why he loves Moonstone. You may remember in episode 123 I spoke to Tom Greenway about his personal history and also Moonstone from a creators standpoint. As you know Paint All The Minis is about generating and sharing goodwill in the hobby community and it has been great to put together 2 Moonstone podcasts to try to get more people aware of this game as it is one I have a genuine interest in. It is always great when you have an interest in something and when you look a little closer it only pulls you further in. Tom seems a really genuine and positive person. Moonstone is innovative and engaging. I wish the game all the best and it has been great learning more about it over the last 6 - 8 weeks.
What would it be like going back to basics, and painting your minis using oldskool artist’s acrylics?
Jo Sonja paints are now available in the UK in P3-style pots, aimed at model-makers and miniature painters alike. Peter spent a few days testing them to get a feel for smoothness, blendability, airbrushability as well as durability. Dive in and see how he got on.
Join Travis once again as he delves into the mechanics of The Warlords or Erehwon. In this video we look at more of the rules, including weapons and armor, shooting, close combat and break tests. We are getting close to getting our factions on the table for a good old hootenanny now!!!
This episode I talk to Tom Greenway of Goblin King Games. Tom created the tabletop skirmish game Moonstone. It features a number of innovative features and components that make the game truly stand out from others such as the melee and arcane components along with some amazing minis full of character. I won’t spoil any of the conversation but I will say that there is a current Kickstarter for Moonstone available and will be until April 12, so if you are a prompt listener you can take a look, and if you are listening to us in the future then there is still an opportunity to hear if Moonstone is for you and you can take a look and see if it is for you.
Hello there and welcome to part two of my series on ‘Can I like 40k?’. Last article I wrote about painting the minis I got from the First Contact box and also the easy build sets.
It is also important to note that I am not looking to influence you in any way, merely to give you something to read that is of mild interest, and to maybe make you think about if you indeed would like to try 40k, or to try something else in our hobby.
Michael and Max face off in the second battle report for their ongoing Endor Campaign series. Han Solo, Princess Lea, and Chewbacca lead the rebel attack against Imperial forces attempting to alert their command of rebel presence on the moon. Of course Stormtrooper officer Lt. Koba is back to lead the Imperial forces in this penultimate mission for the campaign! If you did not check out the previous episodes of the series, make you go back and watch them first to catch up on the action. We posted the Campaign Rules on the Paint All the Minis Facebook page, so why not join us there to follow along and stay for the great community.
It’s basing time! The Terracotta Warriors from WatchfuliStudio are done, but they need Kings of War multi-bases to stand on! Here is a quick pseudo-tutorial to show you how Tyler did it. The finished army is fast approaching!
Welcome to the Underhive for a step by step painting guide for the gangs of House Goliath. I loved the original Necromunda back in the 90’s, so to continue the nostalgia trip I will be painting these new miniatures in the classic colour scheme red and black with distinctive green mohawks. Read on for a comprehensive guide on how to paint the miniatures pictured above.
This episode I talk to Thomas Stoesser the creator of Stoessi’s Heroes, a company that makes historical characters to form part of your WW2 tabletop war-game factions. I wont spoil the story about how all this came about but what I will say is that the minis that are created for Stoessi’s Heroes are brilliant and would certainly take pride of place in your armies and give you a brilliant painting challenge.
Michael and Max face off in the first battle report of their Endor Campaign Series. Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and Chewbacca lead the rebels in a mission to recover supplies cached on the moon. This routine mission becomes much more complicated when an Imperial patrol lead by Lt. Koba stumbles upon their location! If you did not check out the previous episodes of the series, make you go back and watch them before continuing. We posted the Campaign Rules on the Paint All the Minis Facebook page, so why not join us there to follow along and stay for the great community there!
Michael and Max are back in Episode 3 of their Endor Campaign Series to show you how to build a proper Endor themed table. If you did not check out Ep. 1 & 2 of the series, make you go back and check it out before the first battle report!
Michael and Max are back to review the forces available to the Empire for their upcoming Star Wars Legion Campaign set on the forest moon of Endor. If you did not check out Ep. 1 of the series, make sure you go back and check it out before the first battle report!
I have owned a 3D Printer now for coming up to 2 years. My main motivation for purchasing a 3D Printer was to produce wargames terrain. MDF kits are great but I feel they will be a thing of the past as technology evolves, the hobby evolves and 3D printing becomes more mainstream.
Part 2! Today, Tyler sports some stylish swag, shows some progress on the Terracotta Army from WatchfuliStudio for Kings of War, and shows off some awesome new toys! Check it out and you might even learn a thing or two about Chinese mythology...
Hello there once again, as you may know if you follow along with this series it only gets whipped out the cupboard when something sails by that makes me take serious note. You can check out our website (you are on it) and root out some other nuggets, but this article is all about Operation Last Train by Joseph McCullough the man who has brought us several ‘stonking’ (& I use that term deliberately) games to date such as Frostgrave, Ghost Archipelago, & Rangers of Shadow Deep.
Michael and Max are here to introduce the Rebel Forces available for their Endor Campaign Series. The Rebels will be limited to choosing only forces that were available to them during the iconic raid on the Imperial garrison on the forest moon. Up next: Imperial Forces!
Welcome to a painting guide for the Royal Hungarian Army of the Second World War. This Axis ally of Germany on the Eastern Front had an interesting mix of contemporary equipment and dress as well as throwbacks to the old Austro-Hungarian Empire. Read on to find out how to paint your stout Hungarian riflemen step by step.
In this first article of three I am going to try one final time to enjoy 40k. It is the game that holds my interest the most due to its ready availability and the deep setting it resides within. I am starting from a point of wanting to like it, I WANT to like it. I have split my articles into 3 areas. Modelling/Painting, Playing, & Next Steps/Lore
