Bad things happen...getting into Malifaux!

I´ve always had an eye on the beautiful Malifaux miniatures produced by Wyrd Games. Not only are the sculpts really cool, but they are also plastic. A fact I really enjoy, as a painter as well as a gamer. If you are not familiar with Malifaux: It has dark, fantasy, steampunk, and horror elements at the same time, has an evolving, compelling and unique story and is set in a world full of magic and technology. Malifaux is a skirmish miniatures game involving gang warfare in the ruins of a crumbling city., called Malifaux. The city was discovered through a portal into another world. This world is a source of the valuable mineral known as Soulstones which allows for magical effects. Games pit masters and their crews against one another for control of this resource.

For my first crew, I`ve chosen Victor Ramos and his companions. I really liked the look of these constructs and had a blast painting them. Now I am ready for my first Malifaux Game. By the way, the third edition of Malifaux is on the horizon and will probably be published the next months. Therefore it`s the perfect time to get into the game.

The whole Arcanist crew lead by Victor Ramos.

My Top 10 miniature painting artists!

In this article, I would like to share with you, my 10 favorite miniature painters. Since ages, I am following the work of various amazing artists all over the world and draw so much inspiration from them! It is a beauty how the painting community grows together through the internet and everybody has the chance to look over the shoulders of those incredibly talented individuals.

Starting a Tyranid army: Colorscheme

I've been a miniature hobbyist for over 10 years and have played a lot of different games (Warhammer Fantasy, Infinity, Frostgrave, Malifaux, Kings of War, etc.) but still hunger for more. In my gaming group, my friends convinced me to take a look at the Warhammer 40k lore. After reading a dozen books (Horus Heresy!) and pretty much got sucked into the crazy 40k lore, I decided to get into Warhammer 40.000.  As for my first 40k army choice, I was torn between the Childs of Slaanesh and Tyranids. Really love both design and lore of these 2 armies. Finally, I went with Tyranids because they are easy to paint and I wanted to get more into the lore before heavily converting some Slaanesh forces. Also, there are some stunning non-GW Tyranid designs out there (check out this Instagram account: ) and I was very curious how these models would turn out. To say it upfront: These 3D printed resin miniatures have some amazing details and very high quali

The Sylvaneth of the Cherry Blossom Grove

  The Sylvaneth of the Cherry Blossom Grove is marching to war. I recently finished 3 trees (Treeman Ancient, ordinary Treeman, and the Spirit of Durthu) for the army and now the force is nearly finished. The foundation of the Cherry Blossom Grove lies in the Old Days of Warhammer where the majority of the army consisted of Wood Elves ( Link to an old blog article from 2014 ). Since then a lot of new miniatures have been painted and added to the army and I still plan to extend the Cherry Blossom Grove further in the next couple of months and years. Painting Alarielle of course and some more Kurnoth Hunters and even thinking about a Living City detachment of the Cities of Sigmar battletome. The Sylvaneth treemen of the Cherry Blossom Grove: I converted them a little bit by extending their legs for 1-2 inches to make them taller and put some branches of the old Citadel Forest on their shoulders and backs to make them bigger.
