Hi there. Welcome to my miniature photography guide. I have seen a lot of people posting pictures of their models around the net on places such as warseer and dakkadakka, but so often their photos look fuzzy or dark and lose a lot of detail in the model, which is a great shame since most of them are kick-ass models that deserve to be shown off. In an effort to stop repeating myself to everybody, I have created this page as a guide to hopefully help a bunch of you take better pictures of your models in a simple way without resorting to a lot of photography jargon.

the internet seems to be full of people whining about how ridiculously over powered and utterly invincible the Doom of the Malan'tai is.

in my experience it is a powerful adversary but it is not stupidly over the top and it is definitely not invincible.

I have played against it at least ten times and it has yet to survive a game.


even when maxed out it is toughness 4 with 10 wounds and a 3+ save. so it is no more difficult to kill than a squad of space marines.

I bought The First Heretic (TFH) at Games Day and read it on the coach back. It's a strong performance and I'd rate it as one of the best of the Horus Heresy books to date. In places I would rate it as equal to or above Horus Rising. In his blog, Mr ABD makes a reference to the difficulty of topping Dan Abnett's introduction of Horus. In my opinion, the confrontation between Lorgar, Gulliman and the Emperor is easily on a par, possibly exceeding it for emotional impact.

Occasionally, there are times when I am forced to take a long hard look at myself and my relationship with our glorious hobby. The latest of these came, after shelling out a hefty sum on a new Skaven army. This was sparked by the realisation that if I was to get hold of the new Warhammer rules, I’d rather get a bunch of nice minatures rather than a rulebook that could be used as a bludgeoning weapon and which would be made obsolete in about four years time. I then had sudden flashbacks to my poor neglected Imperial Guard army, which has still yet to see the light of day.

Okay, young padawans,

Today's lesson is on the art of getting Gamesworkshop models on the cheap.

Now, there are four main resources you should use:

1) Online discount sales companies

2) The above, but in the form of private individuals or games groups, who only sell to the general public so that they can continue to buy models from GW at wholesale prices.

3) Ebay

The latest addition to Team Fisto is this Deredo-class Dreadnought. Just needs some snow on the base, and he's all set for action! Coming next, Tactical Marines...probably...

...and a bit more work on Brother Dmitr:

Struggling a bit with how to detail the marines, but hopefully a few ideas will raise their heads when I'm not so bogged down!

In grimdark future, yellow scares *you*

<Inloading datasquirt +++ Operandus Tallarn Theatre +++>

To kick off this blog, here's an example of how I paint yellow – with a quick dose of Mango spray paint, followed by a Leviathan Purple wash. Purple is opposite yellow on the colour wheel, so a subtle hint of it really helps the yellow to pop in the recesses, and helps knock back the 'glowing' effect that really bright yellow can have.
