Hey all,

This, judging from your feedback and the reactions to the preview last week, is the most wanted thing we have released so far. It took us _a_lot_ of tries. We went through several different versions to ensure that the proportions are right and they fit well to the existing Greatcoat bodies.

We do apologize you’ve had to wait for them so long. The time has come, though, and this is the day we release Orc Greatcoat Arms.

Cheers,
Pawel

The Army Painter wants you to name their brush

The Army Painter is having a contest to name their 10/0 precision brush. Name it and you could win a whole lot of painting gear.

From the contest sheet:

The Army Painter has a set of unique brushes, all with fitting names. Most popular and possible famous is the INSANE DETAIL brush from the Wargamers range. Now The Army Painter has raised the stakes even further and is making an even smaller brush. As with any movie sequel you need more budget, more famous actors and more action – and we feel brushes are similar in that respect!

What is more insane than INSANE? Help us with the new name of this incredibly ultra small 10/0 precision brush and be the winner of a Mega Paint Set + 10 of the new (name) brush once released in autumn 2012.

The new handmade Rothmarder Sable brush is with the characteristic triangular white Wargamer handle; head size is 10/0 and will be released worldwide autumn 2012.
NAME SMALL – WIN BIG!

Send all suggestions to contact@TheArmyPainter.com – all entries must be with us before June 13th 2012 and you are allowed to have more than one suggestion.

BattleTactics.tv unboxes the Dust Premium Edition SSU Units

Battle Tactics has a very thorough video unboxing of the Dust Preimium Edition SSU Units over on YouTube. It’s worth a watch.

It’s November 1945 after The USA decides to use a VK-enhanced nuclear bomb on Japan before attacking it. The result is beyond their imagination; the whole island is wiped out by the blast. The earth cracks and the ocean swallows 90% of the land. After public outrage directed towards the Allied governments Communists controlling much of China turned their backs on the ineffectual Allied efforts to help them and align themselves fully with the USSR. The Sino-Soviet Union (SSU) was formed.

BattleTactics.tv unboxes the first of the new released Dust Tactics / Dust Warfare SSU units. These Premium Edition miniatures are hand painted to an exact replica of Vincent Fontaine’s work, Dust Studio’s Master Painter. The SSU are here and ready to do battle in Paolo Parente’s Dust universe

Frontline Gamer reviews Chulo Bolu and Momma Galina from Freebooter’s Fate

Frontline Gamer has a review up of a pair of models from Freebooter’s Fate: Momma Galina and Chulo Bolu. Check it out and be an informed gamer!

From them to you:

I suppose I could have reviewed these two miniatures separately, but the truth is they clearly belong together. If you haven’t read the back story behind this Goblin pirate duo I’ll briefly fill you in. There’s not really too much to tell, Chulo was a slave to a particularly smart and crafty tradesmen, who taught Chulo a thing or two. So he’s a better educated crafty Goblin than most. He fancies himself as a bit of a rebel leader, wanting to lead his green brothers and sisters in glorious revolution… except he’s a bit of a weedy git and a totally spoiled brat who throws temper tantrums. In short he’s not hard enough to be leader! That is where his mommy steps in, Momma Galina is hard enough to be leader, but like most smitten mothers who spoil their sons rotten, they want them to be the leaders, and they’re willing to clip anyone round the ear who says otherwise. So put simply Chulo is in charge because if you say otherwise his mommy comes and gets you. The stories behind the two of them are genuinely humourous. So that’s there background and why I just feel like I had to review them together. I mean I just don’t think Chulo would leave home without his mommy in tow.
