My Fyreslayers are from a place called Ashenhold, which is...

Finally, GW has produced a piece of dwarf - sorry, duardin - themed scenery. Fyreslayers got a very nice new update recently which included three Magmic Invocation models, and a Magmic Battleforge that provides a couple of interesting buffs to everyone's favourite flame-haired fanatics. I was really excited for this release and so set to painting the invocations and the forge as soon as I got them home. Since I wasn't overly keen on the example on the box for the forge (way too much gold) I decided to go with something that meshed more nicely with the colours of my army.

Here's something for all our painters. It's from Ben, our new associate writer from Unlucky Frog Gaming . Please give him a warm welcome and maybe he will give us some more painting guides.

This is fantastic content. More of this, please.

My only suggestion would be to have more pictures. This is probably just my personal preference, but I like to see the individual steps (Tale of Painters photos are a good example). The text you have is great and very helpful.

Awesome Ben! Please give us more!

That’s some really great work- I especially appreciate
learning about using BFTBG as an enameling effect,
I’ve never thought of that.

UGH, so awesome. I wish I was so talented and thoughtful. Here's me:
"Hmm. Fire is red. Beards are brown. That's two colors."

I lack the patience and steady hands and skill to paint miniatures well. I console myself by saying that GW miniatures are too cluttered with details and are maybe easier on the eyes in an unpainted state. But the flames and the flame-like helmet ornamentations look equally fantastic in your picture. Maybe if I keep reading up on practical advice like this article, I will eventually gain the confidence to resume work on my Space Hulk marines.

I hear you. The only reason I didn't do that was because I never intended for this to be an article in the first place. I put some pictures up on the Fyreslayer FB Group when I finished painting it and quite a few of the guys were asking how I did it.

Considering how well received this article was (didn't expect that) I'll be doing more painting guides in the future and will definitely be doing the stage-by-stage pictures like you suggest.
