Privateer Insider

The challenge has been made! Now the mad dash to prepare for a month of painting begins.

When I first learned of the Impossible Dream challenge, I leapt at the opportunity to participate. “This is the chance to finally make that Kreoss force I have had on the back burner for years,” said my plucky and annoying inner monologue voice. My enthusiasm lasted for a good 24 hours before the reality of the task (that I volunteered for) hit me. My positive outlook was dampened as I slowly realized what I had gotten myself into.

When Will said “painting challenge,” it was tough to resist. Paint 100 points in a month, you say? Blog about it every week, you say? Easy. I just had to settle on a faction.

I’ve been an avid player of tabletop miniatures games for nearly 15 years.

I had trouble thinking of a single topic that would make a good Privateer Insider blog.

On October 12th, I reviewed the last changes on the last editorial pass of the final story of MK II for Forces of HORDES: Minions.

Tomasz Dobros from Ireland submitted these gorgeous Cryx warcasters to No Quarter. We didn't quite have room for them in the magazine, but we thought his awesome paint jobs deserved their moment in the spotlight! Tomasz sent us a few other shots that we'll share in future No Quarter Presents!

WARMACHINE fan Shawn Lux sent us a picture of his awesome Cryx Stalker conversion!

I feel like I’m flagellating a deceased equine whenever I talk about how much I like our player community, but the fact of the matter is our players and fans are pretty amazing.

It occurred to me that for years now all my painted miniatures have lived their full lives packed in piles of miniature cases.

So the last time we left off, we were converting Jeremiah Kraye into a thrall model.

Today, we’re taking a break from the usual staff Insiders to share a few words from Press Ganger Dr. Norbert Brunhuber about FOODMACHINE 2010!

This blog is about how to promote your tournaments and other special events.

It’s been awhile since I’ve been here, and I would like to take a moment to talk about my favorite aspect of the miniatures hobby: conversions.

Word nerds, it’s time for some fun!

Several weeks ago, Jen wrote a blog about how difficult it is to be surrounded by so many beautiful models.

In the six months I’ve been editor-in-chief of No Quarter Magazine, I’ve had the wonderful opportunity to interact with my readers both in person at the various conventions Privateer Press attends and on our forums.

This year at the Penny Arcade Expo we took a few minutes to talk to the top three finalists in our PAX Invitational tournament!

Hi, I’m Ross Thompson in Retailer Support and Development here at Privateer Press.

There have been multiple people asking how the stone was painted on the Skorne Immortal that I did a couple of blogs ago. I answered one of the forum replies, but I feel I should write a little tutorial on how it was done. You asked, and now you shall receive.
