We always knew Kris was a liar, he said part 3 was supposed to be about Solo Play, and here he is writing about a comparison between the Resin and Plastic kits for Elder Scrolls: Call to Arms.
The store is always looking to bring in the best products for our customers and what’s more, we love being able to give you awesome folks an informed opinion, so before these guys hit the shelf we thought we would give them a try and get Uncle Mike to write up a quick review!Continue reading
In the start of what could be a fun series, we took a box of miniatures and asked our staff if they wanted to paint them.
The first of the boxes we picked was the Onna-bugeisha box from the Warlords of Erehwon range by Warlord Games.
Danielle, Sue & Tia stepped up for this challenge so let’s see how they did!
When you are wrong, you are wrong. Admit your mistake and move on. Necromunda Zone Mortalis Floor Tile Set, I’m sorry I thought you went together poorly and were too expensive, I have been living under a delusion these many months. So there it is: I’m now in love with these new floor tiles and have been busily crafting away in my bunker. Continuing on with my campaign plans while building terrain is the theme again this time. Let’s do it…Continue reading
Kris is back with another look at the Games Workshop Contrast Paint line.
In part 5 of the ongoing series he looks at some interesting ways of getting the most out of the fewest paints possible to give good variety whilst keeping up the pace for batch painting.

Also true, I didn’t get to have as many good times with friends around the gaming table as in previous years. With the gaming postponed I used my extra time and found plenty of time for (the eventual…) betterment of my future-timey-time games.Continue reading
Gosh, time sure flies when you are having fun. Two whole months since part 3 of the series and we are finally back with the promised part 4!
Can Contrast Paints help with something Kris has always found intimidating, painting a primarily white colour scheme.
Before paint even touches your miniature, chances are good that you’ll need to do some assembly first, even if that just means attaching a single-part model to its base. Assembly can be a bit of an overlooked step, but it’s the foundation for everything you’ll do afterwards and it’s important to make sure you have the right tools for the job at hand. This is certainly true for the glue that will hold your models together – each type works in particular ways and using the wrong glue for the material you’re working with is a recipe for problems. Here, we’re going to go over the different glues that we sell here at Sentry Box for building your miniatures and models, to help you select the right one for your project. While there are many available, they fit into a couple broad categories. Let’s dive in!
I’ve mentioned before how Necromunda is a game for older, more experienced gamers. Well, if you are as old as me then you are very much excited about how the hobby (and your favourite game: Necromunda…) has turned out…yet, you are also very much driven to have the things you never had or always wished you did.
One of the words that can be used to describe what that is is ‘Nostalgia’…we’ll leave those other words out for just now…Continue reading
