New painted miniature available

Ali has just finished this piece - it's a version on Captain Kara Black with a alternate colour scheme uniform. I think it came out great. I particularly like the face.

She's available now in the Studio Store!


Battle for Alabaster

I have been talking about this a little on the forums, so I thought I would show the first of The Strain concepts here too. There will be lots more to come in the next few weeks!

New tutorial video

We just added the latest painting tutorial video to our YouTube channel. In case you haven't been following this, it's related to a thread on the Studio McVey forums where we have been running a little follow-along tutorial on one of the Sedition Wars miniatures.

Initially we were just going to post a quick video to explain the way we blend - but that went down so well, we thought we add some more videos for some of the other techniques used on painting this miniature.

Kara's last stand

I've just added the new version of Lt. Kara Black to the Studio Store. We previewed her to the mailing list yesterday and the response has been fantastic so far. The original version of Kara was one of our most popular LE miniatures - surpassed only by Ar-Fienel, so it's nice to have her back in the range again. We're limiting this miniature to 400, rather than the normal 750 - so I'm not sure how long it will last.

Lots of other things going on in the studio at the moment - the next in line for the LE range is nearing completion, and that's looking really nice (quite large too...). I also have a slightly larger piece for The Firebrand in the works which I'm very excited about. We've also been working very hard on another project, and we're getting pretty close to the time we'll be able to announce that - stay tuned!
