Welcome to the home of the Magnificent Bastards.

Who are the Magnificent Bastards?
The Magnificent Bastards are a team of like-minded figure painters from across the country. Our number fluctuates but the core of the group is made up of members of the Point Hammered Podcast and their miscreant pals.

The team has been assembled on and off with different lineups since 2007, striking like a thunderbolt on the tournament scene and then disappearing back into the Chaos Wastes just as mysteriously.

The world needs the Magnificent Bastards to ride forth once more. In 2011, the call was was heard and this website is now our permanent home.

Our focus is mainly on the tabletop gaming aspect of this miniature painting hobby. You won't see us doing too many one-off models for painting contests, rather we concentrate on painting the hundreds of figures that make up a tabletop army. This is our gift. This is our curse. 

This blog is home to our various projects, successes, failures, ramblings, how-to's, and other random bullshit.
