Darklands: Khthones Ýdron Ygandr By Sven


Today I'm back again with some big bad Darklands, as I'm currently blasting through my collection of unpainted minis. That's mainly due to a friend of mine who's actually willing to play the game with me. Which is great fun by the way! But more of that possibly in the future, today we're in for more painted minis.

So here comes Ygandr, Hydra of Ýdron:

Hobby: Spiked Helmets by DiStudios


Greetings! Today I will be going through a tutorial on how to make spikey helmets or pickelhaubes! Today's tutorial uses a Warzone Resurrection Bauhaus Vorreiters, but the methods used here could be applied to any number of projects including Blood Axe themed Orks to German themed Imperial Guard. Please note that this is a advanced tutorial involving sharp metal, pliers and superglue, for younger readers, please seek the assistance of an adult for this project!


First up, the materials. These should all be readily available from your local hobby craft store, I have included a link at the end of this article for where I get all my supplies from, and a direct link for the pikes has been included for your convenience:

Materials & Tools
Needles or brass pikes - Buy the ones I use HERE
Pliers - NOT regular hobby clippers they may not be strong enough and could break!
Pin-vice
Drill bits - The size will depend on the type of needle/brass rod you are using.

Kingdom Death: Satan by Sven NSFW


Well, well, it seems like I really got my motivation for Kingdom Death back running. While all those shiny semi-big monsters and knights are nice this new “wave” is missing something disturbing KD-style. So please bear in mind that the following, is absolutely.

Warzone Resurrection: Bauhaus Etoiles Mortant W.I.P

Greetings, another Warzone Resurrection update, I seem to be flying through these things at the moment! Having finished off the Juggernauts last night, I set to work on the next unit on my check list; the Etoiles Mortant; an all female assassin unit that specialise in combating the Dark Legion. These versions are the Kickstarter backer versions which; although more static; are actually my favourite of the two sculpts. I probably will get the newer version eventually, to boost up the numbers to the full twelve but for now I am very satisfied with the work I have done today.


The general consensus is: more fire! My Juggernauts with OSL flame thrower effects, proved so popular that I have been encouraged to do the same on this new unit. The only problem is the base size, which at 30mm is not a lot of space to work with. However with the input of fellow Warzone I managed to come up with what you see in the photo. Bits of cork mat spaced out allow enough space to anchor a piece of wire, which will have the flames sculpted onto. As a added touch, I will be adding Small droplets of fire to create a flame trail from weapon to target.

I still need to do more cleaning on the legs and of course fill any gaps with green stuff, however my enthusiasm and momentum are high, so fingers crossed we will have another complete unit by the end of the week!

Warzone Resurrection: Bauhaus Juggernauts Completed

Hi guys, amid all the football action - congratulations to our German readers! - I managed to finish off my Bauhaus Juggernauts. Now these are the second generation versions, which are more akin to the exo-armours from the Edge Of Tomorrow movie. The bases are still wet and will require another coat of black paint, and of course I still need to add foliage for some extra detail. But despite these small details, the unit is complete! I had a blast painting them up and it is just a shame that the initial photo did not get all the osl effort I put in to it. This is something I will have to consider carefully once I get round to taking proper gallery shots of the unit.


So next week will be the start of something new for my Bauhaus army...I do have a trio of Vulkans that need cleaning, but I also have the new Vulkans on route. The Grizzly Battle Tank is still waiting for some bits, so I guess I should make a start on some infantry. Right now the Etoile Mortants are winning out, purely because they will have the least amount of prep work to do (also I quite like the miniatures). As much as I want to work on my Hussars and Venusian Rangers, the Hussars need a permanent solution for the fragile head spikes (waiting on something for that) and the Venusian Rangers require putty work for the cloaks and hoods. I may end up building all three units, thus leaving me just painting to worry about.
