With the launch of the Shadowspear boxed game, Chaos Space Marine players and new acolytes were blessed with two new Obliterator miniatures.

How to: Paint a Dark Disciple

With the release of Games Workshop’s new Chaos Space Marines came a new Dark Apostle miniature. I loved the original, but the finecast on mine seemed to become brittle, and eventually I became sick of gluing pieces of him back on and binned him. Being plastic, the new one suffers with none of those problems,… More How to: Paint a Dark Disciple

Video ‘How to: Paint a Black Legion Venomcrawler

Drach’nyen – Abaddon the Despoiler’s Demon Sword

About four or five years ago, I was collecting a small force of Red Corsairs because I really liked the fluff, and Huron Blackheart was a complete fiend.
