Today we’re going to paint something to look like painted metal which has received some scrapes and weathering along with a bit of rust. This is a simple version of some of the more in-depth techniques used in military modelling and used some more common paints and tools available to wargamers without having to buy specialist equipment and is designed tp produce a quick effect for tabletop miniatures and scenery.
In this article we will show you how to paint a quick rust effect to simulate aged ferrous metals which have spent a long time exposed to the elements.
As with all our tutorials, this is not the only way to achieve a rusty effect but it does provide a quick, effective technique, especially for painting scenery and large pieces.
So, you want to attach your miniatures to resin bases eh? Easy enough if the miniature has big feet or is made of plastic. Just cut the tab off, file flat and attach with superglue. But what if the miniature is made of metal and has tiny feet… or no feet? The best answer is to strengthen the bond by pinning the miniature to the base.
In this article we’re going to show you how to pin a metal miniature to a resin base. There may be other ways of doing this but this is the way we do it.
Today we’re going to be showing you guys the way we paint aged weathered bronze with blue-green patina. As with most painting techniques, there are many ways of achieving the same effect but this is the way we do it.

Today we are going to show you lot a quick, simple technique for making great looking creepy swamp terrain or bases with realistic water effects.

Hi there. Welcome to our first tutorial article in which we will be explaining one of the many possible ways of painting rocks for your wargames scenery and miniatures.
One of the most common questions we are asked is how we paint the rocks on our bases and scenery. We paint a lot of stone type items and have developed a quick, easy technique for just this task which (we think) gives great, realistic results.
This technique is very simple, very fast and can be applied to all manner of gaming items including miniatures such as rock golems, bases for your miniatures, scenery such as walls, rocky outcrops, houses, cliffs etc.
