It’s arrived! (actually, it arrived weeks ago, we’re just getting around the publishing the review now…) Here’s the Macromat photography backdrop designed for taking pro-level pictures of miniatures of all kinds. Check it out and see why this was one of our most anticipated Kickstarter-backed products we’ve received so far this year!
Model Craft isn’t a brand name that’s big in the UK or Europe, but their tools shouldn’t be overlooked – we take a close look at their 3 Sided Scraper in this video!
Here’s our latest video review: The Weathering Magazine, issue 19: Pigments!
While The Weathering Magazine is aimed more at scale modelers (for tanks, warplanes and more), this is a great opportunity to see how pigments can really help your wargaming models look amazing!
We took the opportunity to do a video of this fantastic new kit from Games Workshop, and have a close look at how it can be magnetized for ease of transport as well as swapping the face and weapons!
Who’d like to see a follow-up video on how the magnetizing works?
Here’s an unboxing and review of the Legio Custodes Coronus Grav Transport from Forge World!

Over this past weekend I had the pleasure of attending a class taught by Meg Maples of Arcane Paintworks, and I just wanted to share a bit about how it went.
The class was held at Barwell Bodyworks south of Leicester, UK (where I help teach wargame airbrushing classes – the next one is in February 2017) and after the first UK class filled up super fast several months ago, I made sure to jump in the queue ASAP as soon as the second class was announced.
Meg’s Tywin (from Game of Thrones) bust – one of the deciding factors in me choosing to attend!

Meg has been skipping around Europe and the UK for the past few months, attending model shows and competitions such as SMC (Scale Model Challenge) in Eindhoven in the Netherlands and Euromilitaire outside of London, plus squeezing in as many classes as possible on the off-weekends, which I’m sure helped pay for the trip from Australia!
Want to know how to get your first airbrush ready for use? Learn how to disassemble, lubricate and reassemble your airbrush so it’s ready to rock the very first time you use it!
This is the first in a new series of airbrushing tip videos, so have a watch and let me know what you think!
This show-exclusive* Resistance Battle Bus is available only at game shows that Hawk Wargames attends during 2016, and it’s a cool stand-in for the existing Battle Bus model – but best of all you can use this as an open-top bus with either anti-air or anti-ground unit suppression! Anyway…watch the video so you can get a good look!
*UPDATE! This and many other show exclusives are available for a limited time on the Hawk Wargames site!
