Today marks the day that Tale of Painters becomes one year old. It was today, one year ago, that Garfy and Sigur joined and Stahly's Paint Station became Tale of Painters. This is a sentimental look back, so hit "more after the jump" and join the birthday fun!

Since then, we've seen a lot of cool stuff happening on Tale of Painters: Garfy assembling and painting a mighty Thunderhawk. Rev joining the crew. Our epic reviews of Dreadfleet, the Army Painter's Warpaints range, Warhammer World's Fat Bloke burger, the new Citadel paint rangeWarhammer 40k 6th Edition, Dark Vengeance and lately, the relaunched White Dwarf. Our even more epic painting tutorials - How to paint Ultramarines, Grey Knights, Dark Angels, Tyranids, the Chaos Helbrute and many more. Our new design. Stahly completing his Skaven army. Sigur painting loads of power armour of all kind. Garfy painting his second (!) Hierophant. Rev sharing his Iron Hands army. Sigur taking a break from marines and painting Orks. And so much more!
