The Northern Wastes was designed as a showcase of armies, battle reports and hobby news for a group of ex-Games Workshop staff and friends in the north of England. With experienced modelers, gamers and painters, we aim to provide a variety of content aimed at both beginners and more experienced hobbyists alike.

Regular attendees at both local and national events this will form part of our coverage as and when one of our team is able, bringing the hobby to as wide an audience as possible.

This site is launched in conjunction with Dies Irae Miniatures, a painting studio set up and ran with the aim of creating evocative and innovative armies and display models to a high standard. Dies Irae Minis has been responsible for multiple finalists in both best painted categories at tournaments as well as finalist badges at Golden Demon and a Gold at Armies on Parade. After a brief spell away from the hobby it can only be a matter of time before a few more trophies are achieved!

If you would like to get involved, submit an article or have your army featured here then please get in touch, either contact @DiesIraeMinis on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter using the link on the page or drop us an e-mail at contact@thenorthernwastes.com
