Warhammer 40K


The Goonhammer group is made up of dozens of multi-talented authors, many of whom have other projects outside of the site. In addition to their work here, Dan Boyd and Campbell "SRM" McLaughlin have their own podcast, the 40K Badcast, a member of the Goonhammer Media Network.   We could have named this episode “If I ain’t truckin’, I’m fuckin'” but we didn’t because Rob from Goonhammer would get mad at us.

They all, however, assume you know the difference between wet blending and glazing or what the hell “zenithal” means. Welcome to Hobby 101. This series will lay the groundwork to teach you the fundamentals and best practices to make your models shine.  The Hobby 101 series is sponsored by The Army Painter. A wiser man than me once said “to err is human,” but in the hundreds of years since these words...
