I love metal models. I find them so much easy to do as second-hand or rescue projects because they hold their shape so well compared to resin, and I find that they take better solvent baths in Super Clean or Simple Green than plastic, but it’s more than that. There’s something tactile and satisfying just… Read more Five Ghosty Bois – “Oldhammer” Wraithguard
After doing a second attempt at Jain Zar, is anybody surprised to see more Howling Banshees in my galleries? For that matter, is anybody ever surprised to see Howling Banshees in my galleries at this point? It’s been a stressful summer with finishing up my Masters’ degree and starting up a new full-time job, so… Read more Yet More Howling Banshees!
I can admit when I have a problem. And lately that problem is that I have way too many Howling Banshees in my backlog. I gave one of my extra kits away, but I still had a 5-Banshee squad in the box that I’d been avoiding tackling for ages. While working on the metal batch,… Read more Mura, the Resolute – Howling Banshee Exarch
If you’ve seen XenonMage’s Tyranid army in action before, you’ll notice right away that there’s something very different about this particular bug. This is a special Tyranid that I put together for a special occasion. XenonMage, my best friend, recently not only completed her Master of Science in Marine Biology, but got an article she… Read more “Finally Feels Valid” – XenonMage’s New Pyrovore
About a month ago, I posted some awesome Tyranid Terrain for XenonMage that I got from the talented Dave Stone at Wargames Terrain Workshop, but I picked one piece up for myself that I thought was going to fit in just great with my Death Guard. The terrain piece is enormous, for the price, and… Read more Wargames Terrain Workshop’s “Toxic Pool”
Hard to believe I’ve been posting this stuff for a whole year! And one year ago, when I got this blog off the ground, the first thing I posted was a kitbashed Autarch, Matthias. It took him close to a year to actually hit the tabletop, but when he did, he landed with a splash,… Read more Autarch Matthias – One Year Later!
We’re back at it again, with reinforcements for my Howling Banshees! This model is a third-party “not-Jain-Zar” sculpt released by Wargame Exclusive, and offers an alternative to the Oldhammer metal model and the more recent 2019 plastic version. It keeps some of the dynamic pose and swept-back hair of the new release, and adds to… Read more Wargame Exclusive’s “Elves Phoenix”
This post will (hopefully) not be as piss-and-vinegar as my last one, and since I’m back to painting and working on models again I’m hoping that this will help me set the direction for this blog going forward, for my painting, and for where I go from here. It’s been a wild couple weeks. The… Read more What does Warhammer mean to me?
(Edit: Salt and satire below, and it’s not my best work. See here for something more constructive.) Here at Twitchy Bristles, we only post the hottest of hot takes on the hottest of topics, and we’ve got a real barn-burner on our hands this time. In a move that absolutely no one saw coming after… Read more Bad Actors, in Bad Faith
I think this is the first time I’ve posted a painted item here that I didn’t paint myself! Today’s gallery is scenery pieces made by the talented Dave Stone at Wargames Terrain Workshop, who I definitely recommend for Tyranid terrain – and all kinds of other terrain too. One of these he painted up as… Read more More Tyranid Terrain – Thanks, Dave!
