A few years back I adopted the mantra of ‘finished, not perfect’ to help me clear my backlog of projects. It was through gritted teeth I hissed those optimistic words as I realised I would have to paint both of my least favourite things for this project: fire and flags. Curse you, past me! I would need to have recipes ready for candles, flames, glow effects and a design for the flag, likely involving some custom heraldry. I resigned myself to my fate, poured myself a tumbler of ‘19 Lahmian Medium, and picked up the brush.
The team over at Den of Imagination painted up our Space Western miniatures and they look fantastic! We wanted a cohesive set, so they painted them up in dusty browns and blue shirts, and the finished effect is spot on.
The 39th pioneer corps was intended as a modelling project, specifically based around using Anvil's Regiments figures at its core… who else? As the theme of the 39th is a sapper/engineer regiment set in a dieselpunk European-war trench-warfare setting I went straight to Anvil’s trencher range of minis. Although I had previously used parts of their ranges to modify existing models I had decided that it was past time I put Anvil's minis front and centre, with other parts used hither and yon where appropriate.

In April 2018, we launched a Kickstarter project to fund the creation of the Daughters of the Burning Rose, a new range of gothic medieval warrior women crafted with the finest resin casting methods.
