Plans for Kings of the North continue to progress, but I thought it about time to give you guys an update, and today I would like to tell you about some of our sponsors who have come on board over the past few days.
The Army Painter
The Army Painter is the brain child of Bo Penstoft and Jonas Faering, both veterans of many years in the wargaming and hobby industry. The Army Painter founders have all in all fielded over 30 fully painted miniature armies, the product of countless of hours of work.
But all those hours spraying, painting and shading are hours not spent at the gaming table! The Army Painters mission is to win back those hours and give you more time for gaming.
The Army painter consists of around twenty people all dedicated to create products that will bring your wargaming miniatures from unboxing to painted gaming standard effortlessly and fast giving you more time for gaming.
Since 2007 several developments have been made in The Army Painter laboratory such as:
Colour Primers, giving hobbyists and gamers the option of spraying on a miniature’s primary colours on instead of painting them on with a brush. So the miniature Colour Primer lets you basecoat an entire regiment at a time – giving you more time for gaming.
Quickshade and the “Quickshade dipping technique”. What separates the novice from the master miniature painter? Most would say the shading and highlighting. Countless hours have been spent giving life to Orks, Elves, Space Marines and Marauders by painstakingly darkening shadows under arms, rifles and talons to make them lifelike. But what if hours could be made in to seconds? The Army Painter Quickshade Dipping Technique does exactly that, a quick dip of your miniature in the Quickshade and a vigorous shake followed by a day of drying and Voila! The miniature has been shaded to perfection, do this with an entire regiment at a time and you will have saved yourself days or even weeks of work. Finished off with The Army Painter anti-shine Varnish for an extremely lifelike result, in an outstanding Gaming Standard.
Together with the Quickshade and the Colour Primer The Army Painter produces a high quality Warpaints series consisting of basecoat colours, inks and metallic Warpaints that has one of the industry’s best coverages. They are extremely easy to work with and yields fantastic results.
Last but definitely not least are The Army Painters line of exceptional hobby tool and wargaming accessories that make gaming and preparation of miniatures as easy as getting a Pack of Orks to attack a helpless village.
During the years The Army Painter has worked with several different gaming companies helping them maximize a games potential by making custom paints, paint sets and painting guides for several different games, for example:
Zombicide, SAGA, Flames of War, Imperial Skies and many more.
This has led to great partner ships with among other:
Cool Mini or Not, Warlord Games, Battlefront Miniatures, Gripping Beast, Mantic Games, Plastic Soldier Company and many more…
What does the future hold for the army painter? Our mission is as always to Get More Time For Gaming. So we will keep on inventing and producing products that do just that. So in the future you will see a lot more interesting product from The Army Painter that will make any miniature army stand out and make wargaming easier and more interesting.
A great thanks go out to all our customers and associates who have helped us become what we are today, and we look forward to many more years working for and with you to…
GET MORE TIME FOR GAMING!

Systema Wargaming Scenery is run by guys (and gals!) just like you: we love wargaming and we love cool scenery! Only we decided to start making it ourself. The good news is that you won’t have to: you can just buy ours!
At Systema, we think we’ve got something special going. Allow us to explain why that is!
Our scenery is designed by a real architect to be truly modular.
All the terrain elements (within a single range) seamlessly fit together. Even though you’ll buy the terrain in loose kits (or bundles!), after purchase you can mix and match the pieces at will. So the Base-0 HQ building’s first floor fits with the Habitat buildings’s second floor, vice versa, any way you like.
Personally checked and packed before shipping
We personally handle every single sheet of MDF that goes into (and comes out of) the laser. If there’sanything wrong with it, it doesn’t go into the laser. In the rare instance that it does come through the laser well, it doesn’t get packed! So you’ll always receive complete and fully functional kits. 100% Slovenian handcrafted quality!
We decided we wanted as many people as possible to be able to buy our stuff. So we decided that if you spend enough to make it worthwhile for us, we’ll make it worthwhile for you! Spend over € 50 in our store and we’ll send you your scenery for FREE anywhere in the European Union. We’ve also got free shipping available for the Rest of Europe (from € 70 spent) and if you spend € 100 or more you get free shipping worldwide.
Systema Wargaming have provided us with scenery for use in the Warhammer 40,000 tournamenets.
