The Army Painter Method - A Finished Daqan Force

63 Comments

We see how The Army Painter method looks across an entire force. Here we have the Daqan forces, the Humans, from RuneWars, painted up using simple and effective methods.

As you can see they look great with some basing adding to the overall scheme and they have been tied together well. As you can see there's even a new commander in there leading the way.

Learn To Play RuneWars: The Miniatures Game

92 Comments

Justin steps into a couple of rounds of play with our demo guy, Az, as he runs you through the basics of the game; enough for you to get your own games in and learn how to battle it out with the forces of the Daqan and the Waiqar.

Follow along and let us know what you think of the game so far as we learn more about the advanced rules too AND the tactical nuances behind it.

You'll find yourself looking a few turns ahead with this game!

The Army Painter Method – A Finished Waiqar Force

58 Comments

We take a look at another of the finished armies using the Army Painter method. This time it's the Waiqar, the undead from RuneWars.

As you can see this is another simple scheme which provides you with a wonderful looking army in a matter of days (maybe even hours).

Basing is a big part of this and we have plenty of great tips on basing coming up soon.

Bentley’s Army

55 Comments

See what you think of the work that Bentley has put into his army over the weekend. As you can see there are a few more steps to do along the way but most of the force is finished and it's looking epic.

What do you think of the force and would you attempt this colour scheme?

Mel The Terrain Tutor Gets Stuck Into His Army

53 Comments

Mel has been here all weekend working away and at the moment he's getting stuck into the final steps on a series of infantry units, although his Rune Golem is just superb.

We really like what he's been doing and make sure to check out his Youtube Channel Here: https://www.youtube.com/user/TheTerrainTutor

Tim's Mariachi Leader

81 Comments

We focus in on what Tim has been doing as he paints up his Mariachi Leader and the rest of his dirty, rotten, brutalised skeletons for his Undead army.

Do you prefer the dirty of the clean look for your forces on the tabletop?

Lance's Black Beauty

51 Comments

As you know, Lance has been tinkering away on some horses across the entire of the weekend. Now he has moved onto his dark and brooding piece titled Black Beauty.

We can really see a sense of darkness and foreboding coming across from this miniature...a perfect artistic piece.

Ben’s Christmas Army

71 Comments

Justin stops in with Ben to find out how it has been working on the live blog AND painting up his forces for the tabletop.

He has been working away on the Daqan and gone with what appears to be a bit of a Christmas theme featuring red, green and plenty of tinsel...I mean silver.

John's Painting Tutorial - Carrion Lancer

68 Comments

We sit down for another painting tutorial from John as he shows off what you can do to make the Carrion Lancer look great.

As you can see the techniques on show here really do reveal a fantastic method for painting up a larger creature in your Waiqar force.

Some Gaming Underway

39 Comments

We have some of the gamers playing out a demo game or two to get used to the rule of the game. It's neat seeing it all coming together.

The winter 4Ground table has proved to be a very good gaming table to play out battles on.

Armies On Parade #1

44 Comments

Come and take a look at some of the armies that we've been working on for the world of RuneWars as part of this Hobby Weekend.

This is one of the green Daqan forces that looks fantastic, mixing some of the tried and tested Army Painter techniques with some additional awesomeness thrown in for good measure.

Lloyd's Frosted Snow Bases

106 Comments

Come and take a look at what Lloyd has been tinkering away on. Here we have his techniques for snow bases and frost, allowing for a slushy, icy mix.

As you can see it looks very effective and creates a fascinating look which makes for some cool 'White Walker' skeletons.

Armies On Parade #3

38 Comments

Now we check out another of the Daqan Forces for the world of RuneWars, this time with an entirely different technique being put into play.

This also was inspired by Warcraft and you can see this crossing throughout the range.

A Wonderful Hobby Weekend

59 Comments

We've really enjoyed ourselves this weekend as we got to sit down and just paint away on our armies and get really stuck into the processes.

It's been awesome seeing this all come to life and we've also had some time to play some games too.

Armies On Parade #4

40 Comments

Here we have another of the armies on parade, this time focusing in on the Undead from Waiqar. This is done with a ghostly theme which brings together a fantastic look for these shade-like Undead.

If you're looking to do an awesome set of miniatures quickly this would make for a fantastic army.

I've Finished A Base Of Four!

61 Comments

Yes, that's right peeps!

I've got a whole base of four done including a bit of white dry brushing to make the skeletons extra frosty looking.

I think it's really helped with the White Walker theme 🙂

Mel's Finished Daqan Army

45 Comments

We dive in and check out the awesome work from Mel, TheTerrainTutor, who has finished off his Daqan force from RuneWars.

The basing is yet to be done because he is taking the army home to play with his daughter and they need to work out what kind of tabletop they're going to design before they can move on to the basing!

Got to talk my local gamestore into doing a hobby weekend. It would be a great way to get more local interest in miniature gaming. Pokemon, Magic and Heroclix have too much of a monopoly here.

Initially I wasnt too interested in this game, as I’m already tucked into a number of fantasy battle games, however since the bootcamp started it has peaked my interest and now I have watched some demos, I really really like the game mechanics. Plus I have a tone of FF games, one more couldnt hurt right?
