Community Tutorial and Resource Collection

Recommended Posts

With a good amount of new painters on the forum let's put together a resource library.
I will add what I have available now, if you think of something useful you'd like to share comment below and we will add it to the first post. 

I propose the following categories for now. Suggestions are appreciated.


Let's make it easy for everyone to get into painting their armies.

@Polda Great resource collection - thank you!

Here's a link you may want to consider:

https://robhawkinshobby.blogspot.com.au/search/label/Runewars

This is a great site by the guy who was commissioned to produce scenery and tables for Runewars by FFG. All sorts of good stuff there, but the Runewars scenery/table guides stuff is great!

I completely forgot about these. Fantastic stuff. Shame we only get 2 or 3 pieces of terrain in the game.
