Warmaster Miniatures – Epic Clash of the 10mm Fantasy Armies

Warmaster Miniatures – Epic Clash of the 10mm Fantasy Armies

The world of tabletop wargaming offers a smorgasbord of experiences, from sprawling narratives in games like Warhammer Fantasy to the tactical precision of games like Warmachine. But for those who crave the thrill of commanding vast armies in epic clashes without sacrificing precious hobby space, Warmaster in 10mm scale stands out as a truly unique and rewarding experience.

Warmaster, a fantasy tabletop wargame from the minds at Games Workshop, takes a unique approach to battles. Unlike its larger-scale cousin, Warhammer Fantasy, Warmaster utilizes 10mm scale miniatures. This allows players to field massive armies on a significantly smaller footprint. 

Imagine sweeping cavalry charges and thunderous artillery barrages unfolding on a table that wouldn’t take up your entire dining room. 

The smaller scale doesn’t diminish the strategic depth or excitement of the game. Warmaster boasts a streamlined ruleset that emphasizes maneuver and battlefield positioning, creating fast-paced and exhilarating battles that can be played in a single evening.

The 10mm scale itself presents a fascinating challenge for hobbyists. While the miniatures are undeniably smaller than their larger counterparts, the level of detail they possess is nothing short of remarkable. 

From the flowing robes of High Elf mages to the snarling visages of Orc warriors, these tiny figures capture the essence of their fantasy counterparts with surprising fidelity. 

However, the smaller scale also demands a different approach to painting. Techniques that work wonderfully on a 28mm miniature need to be adapted for these diminutive figures. Here at Minis For War, we understand the intricacies of painting 10mm miniatures.

Our commission painting service is specifically tailored to bring out the best in these incredible figures, ensuring your Warmaster army looks as stunning as it plays.

10mm Bretonnia: A Tapestry of Chivalry

Bretonnia, a realm steeped in chivalry and unwavering faith, boasts a visually stunning army on the tabletop. Here, we delve into the details that make a Bretonnian force truly stand out.

  • The Gleaming Lances: Bretonnian knights are the undisputed stars of the show. Their polished armor, often adorned with heraldic emblems, gleams under the battlefield lights. Our skilled commission painters can capture the metallic sheen of their armor, making them truly stand out on the tabletop.
  • Heraldry and Faith: Bretonnian heraldry plays a significant role in their visual identity. Banners emblazoned with their noble house sigils flutter proudly behind charging knights, while religious symbols like the grail or the Lady of the Lake adorn their shields. Our artists can meticulously recreate these details, adding a layer of historical richness to your miniatures.

10mm Dark Elves: Elegance in Darkness

The Dark Elves, despite their cruel nature, possess a certain dark elegance on the battlefield. Here’s what makes their forces visually captivating:

  • Black Armor and Crimson Accents: The obsidian armor of the Dark Elves creates a striking visual contrast. Our painters can highlight the subtle variations in the black tones, while utilizing vibrant reds for weapons, capes, and other accents.

  • Monstrous Majesty: Cold Ones, towering reptilian beasts ridden by elite Drachau, are a terrifying sight on the battlefield. Our artists can capture the raw power and sinister beauty of these creatures, making them the centerpiece of your Dark Elf army.

By showcasing these armies, we aim to demonstrate the versatility of commission painting for 10mm miniatures. Whether you crave the noble splendor of Bretonnia or the dark allure of the Dark Elves, Minis For War can bring your vision to life, transforming your miniatures into stunning tabletop centerpieces.

Mastering the Miniature: The Art of Painting in 10mm

Painting miniatures in 10mm scale requires a unique set of skills and techniques compared to their larger counterparts. The smaller size necessitates a meticulous approach, demanding steady hands, exceptional brush control, and a keen eye for detail. 

Gone are the days of recreating intricate facial expressions or intricate patterns on clothing. In the realm of 10mm, success lies in capturing the essence of a character or unit through broad strokes and selective highlights.

Here at Minis For War, our commission painting service caters specifically to the demands of 10mm miniatures. Our experienced artists are veterans of the miniature painting scene, possessing the technical proficiency and artistic vision necessary to breathe life into these tiny warriors.

We utilize a variety of techniques specifically suited for the scale, including:

  • Basecoating and Layering: We employ high-quality, high-pigment paints to ensure vibrant color even on a smaller canvas. Layering techniques are used sparingly, focusing on creating a base coat and then highlighting key areas to define form and features.

  • Washes and Inks: These tools become invaluable in 10mm miniatures painting. Washes add depth and shadow, while inks can be used to create realistic textures on armor, leather, and clothing.

  • Dry Brushing: This technique allows for quick and effective highlighting, bringing out details like chainmail or the raised scales of a dragon.

  • Basing: While real estate is limited, a well-designed base can still add significant visual interest to your miniatures. We utilize a variety of basing materials like sand, rocks, and flock to create thematic environments for your army.

By combining these techniques with a deep understanding of Warmaster lore and aesthetics, our commission painters can create armies that are not only visually stunning but also thematically cohesive.

Imagine a regiment of Dwarf warriors, their axes glinting in the sun as their fiery beards are picked out with a skilled highlight, or a horde of Orcs, their savage fury captured in a well-placed wash that emphasizes their monstrous features.
