How to Paint Iron Hand Space Marines by Garfy from Tale of Painters - Following on from Garfy's Imperial Fists tutorial we have this one for the Iron Hands...

The Minotaurs by Lorenzen from the Bolter & Chainsword - I've been following Lorenzen's work for some time. His Centurion conversions are what has given me hope that I'll never see use of them in my collection. This week however, it is his recipe for painting stunning flesh that caught my attention. The link provided gives a close up on the Sternguard Sergeant pictured below... wow is all that can be said.

Space Marine Librarian by Damn13n from the Bolter & Chainsword - This miniature seemed to get some negative reactions when pictures first hit the interwebz about a month ago. I'll be honest and say I didn't understand the dislike. The miniature shows why Games Workshop is one of the leading miniature makers. And despite the unusual choice of colour, this miniature is turning out beautifully. I look forward to seeing it finished.

How to Paint Imperial Fist by Garfy from Tale of Painters - The use of red for shading gives this yellow a unique warmth... not something I'd want to repeat on my own Imperial Fists. But for 3rd Company this really works.

The Minotaurs & an Ultramarine by Lorenzen from the Bolter & Chainsword - I'm not a fan of the Centurion miniatures. I don't dislike them as much as the Dreadknight. However, when I first saw the pictures I was convinced they would never be included in my collection. Seeing them in person at the FLGS reinforced that view. However, Lorenzen's simple alterations has given me hope... just need to see how they would look with the chest mounted weapons removed I suspect it would take a lot of work.

Miniature Photography by Phil from Massive Voodoo - I'm likely to pick up a decent quality camera next year for the honeymoon... so this brief guide is a good starting point as an introduction.
