REVIEW: Modelmates Rust Effect

If you've been a longtime reader of Tale of Painters, you may have seen Garfy's review of this stuff on his Necron warriors.  It just seemed too good to be true (not that I don't trust the guy, but dude's got skills- it couldn't be that easy, right?), so after months of searching for someone who would actually ship it out of the UK, I finally got my hands on a bottle to test for myself.

REVIEW: Figure Painter Magazine

I stumbled upon a new magazine today completely by chance (thanks Google Now app!). Figure Painter Magazine. As far as I know it is digital only, but it is entirely dedicated to the hobby of miniatures and painting. Could this be the answer to White Dwarf's annoying habit of monetizing every bit of useful content out of their magazines?  Let's find out.

NOTICE: Adsense added to site

Hey everybody, just a quick update - some of you may have noticed that I've added a small ad space in the side bar. I hope it's not too obtrusive. We're getting a regular readership, so I figured I'd see what this whole adsense thing is about. I've tried to filter out dating sites and other crap, and keep it games and hobby-centric.

I was hoping that the algorithms would be smart enough to serve up only wargames related stuff, like what I see on tale of painters blog, or BOLS, but maybe I haven't configured it correctly. If anyone knows how to do that, be sure to comment below.
