Television is rather a frightening business. But I get all the relaxation I want from my collection of model soldiers.

In the endless flat of the Grimnir Fens, travellers must be wary of the Deadlights. Ever keen to draw people off into the endless shadows of the depths, the Shades of those who drowned in the service of the Harrowed King glow with an unearthly light. 

This was another one painted for my son; the easy to build banshees are great little miniatures and he saw something I'd done with the glow in the dark pigment which led him to ask if I could make him a ghost that glowed. 

I could. 

It's relatively simple to use; you mix the pigment with a little bit of water and then add some matt medium to make your actual glow in the dark paint. I'm still experimenting with getting the consistency right; hence why the finish here is slightly gritty. To be fair, that grittiness works quite well when you're looking at the model in the dark. The nice thing is that the paint is pretty much unnoticeable in normal light, leaving the glow as a nice little surprise.


  1. Great work with the luminescent paint

  2. Very clever! Even just the basic (non-glowing) colours look really good.

  3. Awesome! Where do you get glow in the dark pigment like that?
