Officio Assassinorum Assassins by Third Eye Nuke from Tale of Painters - TEN's style of painting helps to make these old school miniatures just pop. Not sure if I could pull off the same style or approach. Suspect I'd go for more of the latex approach with gloss black.

Rebasing Fantasy Models by Tyler Mengel from Mengel Miniatures - For all those Warhammer Fantasy players that suddenly felt the need to pull their models off bases, this is possibly the best solution. This could also work for Space Marine players. An alternative is the 32mm conversion rings from Secret Weapon Miniatures.

Taurans by Overdrive from thw Bolter & Chainsword - A quick look at how to achieve masking using tape and putty. I've also shown what the guys at Massive Voodoo have done in the past as well.

Seekers of Truth by Royal Cactus from the Bolter & Chainsword - You don't often see someone taking the loyalist Space Marine Terminators and converting them into Chaos Terminators. But this has really worked. The powerfist is just awesome.

Pandemonium Genesis Cultists by Kouzes le from Blog de Kouzes - A interesting approach to washing some cultists. I've never seen matt medium used before. So I'm not sure how unique this approach is... but it's something to consider given that I've got 35 of these guys to paint. There is also Games Workshops own Youtube tutorial.

Using Foamcore: Part 1 by Universal Head from The Esoteric Order of Games - I stumbled across this amazing website while looking for a way to store my Space Hulk. I've settled on the Battlefoam Tray insert. However, there is soooo much awesome contained in this website and associated forum. I'll have to get myself set up to create some foamcore inserts for my growing collection of board games.

Imperial Fist Captain by Luther from The Mighty Brush - I was googling for individuals that have used Vallejo Flat Yellow for their Imperial Fists when I found this miniature. The technique is different to my own. But it gives me some ideas for weathering.

Warhammer: Age of Sigmar - Revealed

The Age of Sigmar has been unleashed...

I'm sure that there are many other gamers and hobbyists that have been interested in joining the Fantasy crowd. However, there has always been something that got in the way. For me one of the main reasons I kept sitting on the fence is not being able to transfer the Fantasy stuff into my Imperial Armies due to the square bases. Well that's no longer an issue...

The issue I've had is not knowing what army to collect. First World Problems. Although we don't know too many details regarding this new release. Something that is upsetting the delicate balance of nerd feelings. I'm fairly certain that I'll be throwing my lot in with the Chaos factions. Especially as round bases mean that I can transfer them over to my Chaos Space Marines...
