There are many inventive ways to secure a miniature while painting. Some like to bond the mini to a piece of cardboard while others buy specialty stands to do the trick. A few years ago, I noticed a pile of left over glue stick scraps in my work area and thought they would work great as temporary painting handles. Simply heat one side of the glue stick with a lighter and stick it to the bottom of a miniature. The glue holds strong, but does not chemically bond so the handle is easy to pull off later without leaving any residue. Adding a base to the glue stick is just as easy, heat and stick. Check out the video below to see how its done.

The Bones line from Reaper has been in the news quite a bit lately since they blew out a ton of minis for a fantastic price during their Kickstarter campaign.

The Bones line by Reaper are very affordable. The material they are made from is untraditional and quite flexible.

The boxed set is also the face of Warhammer 40k as it is often a new player’s first experience with Warhammer 40k miniatures. That’s why we believe it is a very important launch. The main armies are all but official, Chaos vs Dark Angels. However, some debate still looms over the exact miniatures that will be included. Let’s go over what most expect the new box set to include:
