I’ve been a wargaming enthusiast, creator and hobbyist for more years than I care to remember, starting in my teens when Games Workshop was still known as ‘Citadel Miniatures’. Painting was an aspect of the hobby I found enjoyable, but never took seriously seeing it as a stage armies occasionally passed through between assembly and the battlefield. Recently I have become far more engaged in the painting side of the hobby, specifically the scale model style prevalent in Forgeworld’s Age of Darkness ruleset for the Horus Heresy. When you’ve followed on one particular way of painting it’s easy to forget there are many other ways, methods and materials that can be exploited to bring your armies to life and it is to that pursuit I’ve dedicated this blog in the hope you may find helpful some of the things I have learned over the years in your own painting journey. Also, there may be cats depending upon which one invades the workshop.
