I've had quite a few people ask me, "How do you do that?" Well, after breaking my fingers against the keyboard typing a brief tutorial everytime somebody asked me how to do something, I decided it would probably be more helpful to create this section.

Below you will find some 'How To' guides of some of my some of my more popular painting tips and model conversions, . Enjoy.


Freehand Banners

Banners and Standard Bearers can really add something to an army. Here's a step-by-step guide on how I painted the Standard Bearer for my Ultramarines.

Painting Grey Knights

With the Grey Knights rerelease in April 2011, I've put together a tutorial on how I painted mine.

Painting Ork Skin

Another often requested 'How To' is my method for painting ork skin. It's not especially hard nor does it require any advanced techniques, but it can be a bit time consuming.

Speed Painted Orks

If you need to get a LOT of Orks painted, and you don't have a lot of time, this tutorial may be for you.


'Old School' Space Marine Devastator Legs

Back in the days of 2nd edition, the metal Devastator Marines had some cool looking leg armor. Here's how to build your own without having to scour eBay for the original models.

Ork Wartrakk

One of the most requested Tutorials has got to be my Wartrakks. These things are fairly simple to make, but require a fairly varied parts list. Some of the parts are non-GW, which could possibly cause some problems in a 'GW only' tournament. I've provided alternate parts and techniques where I could in an effort to help out folks who are concerned with such things.

Grot Rokkit

There are a great many Ork vehicles in Apocalypse armed with 'Supa-Rokkits'. These grot-guided weapons are one of the most accurate anti-tank weapons in the Ork arsenal. Unfortunately, the only GW-made models for them are the Forgeworld "Grot Bombz". At $16 a pop, they're a bit pricey. Here's a tutorial on how to make your own for a fraction of that.

Space Marine ATV

For my Space Wolves, I wanted something more rugged than the typical Space Marine Attack Bike. The GW model is a little too 'low-rider' looking for my taste. As a motorcyclist, I can tell you that sidecars are not 'off-road' equipment. This model was originally inspired by one of Brian Shaw's conversions.
