Warhammer underwolds Shadespire – Steelheart’s Champions

Posted on November 14th, 2017 under , , . Posted by

Guess what I’m back with ? Well there’s not much to guess with a big picture to open the post but yeah, I’ve painted Stormcast. Again.
After trying Shadespire at my friendly local hobby shop, I had a really good time and immediately saw the opportunity to play this one with my non wargaming friends (the weird kind who like to play games but without miniatures only).
The bow set coming with 8 models and the bands being set as they are, I also knew there was little risk for me to say… start an new army or that kind of non sense.

Trash Bash competition – The outpost

Posted on October 29th, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

Brian Roe from Roebeast’s magical house of sunshine has organised a new edition of the Trash Bash competition on the Facebook page.
I have to say trash bashing has never been my forte so I thought I’d use the occasion to take part and come up with something for once !
You can read the full rules on his blog but the main points were the following :


Contestants will construct and paint a vehicle or structure inspired by the terms ASSAULT/SIEGE. Concepts do not have to be military in nature and can embody any ideas that the entrant sees as viable.

The required bit is a medicine package. From pill bottles to blister packs, any bit that once held or dispensed some sort of medicine is valid

So I tried to look in my stash for suitable pieces I could repurpose and came up with those :

Life in 2 colours – a painting exercise

Posted on October 28th, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

And now for something completely different and a little unexpected, here’s a little painting exercise ! I’ve decided to take part in a little online painting challenge a couple of weeks ago. The rules were pretty simple : the only pots available had to be black, white, turquoise and orange !
Working with a limited palette should be OK, I’m used to it I thought… And then reality struck me in the face…
If model painters are ranked from “tournament minimum 3 colours” to “master level multi awarded god” well…. I guess I’m firmly stuck somewhere in the grey area in between.
Now what drives my painting ?

Orks, orks orks, get ready for some love !

Posted on October 24th, 2017 under , , , , . Posted by

Orctober is a good month, not only becaus eit is the month that saw me come to this world or because of the trees getting coloured in all sorts of splendid colours from green to yellow, orange and red but because thanks to Erny, it’s become the international month of celebration of orcoid love.
Now I’ve taken part a few times in Orctober now and felt like giving it a go once again this year. I didn’t have any big plan for it but a quick look at my desk told me I had some fodder (don’t we all ?).

The lone shacks – Fogou Models

Posted on October 17th, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

I’ve recently spent a lot of time on scenery from all sources and although it has made progression on models a bit more complicated it’s starting to pay off. I have a convention planned in half a year and I would really want to be able to fill a fancy table so there’s no other way to achieve this than to roll my sleeves up and get dirty !
I have many projects of scenery on the go but the first I’ve finished were those lone shacks from Fogou Models.

Ordo Biologis acolytes

Posted on October 5th, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

There are some ideas you just don’t see coming although they’ve been in your head for a while. Well these guys are of that kind !
I was very excited about the release of the objectives box along the new 8th edition of warhammer 40k and one model had especially grabbed my attention.

Factious Waste – Ludite and Neoprimitive priest of Consumar

Posted on September 24th, 2017 under , , . Posted by

Last BOYL, I was lucky enough to come back with an outrageous amount of models and amongst those, some very particular ones since they haven’t been released yet !
Why haven’t they ? Well because they’re due for a Kickstarter coming very soon.

The Six Sinners – Grimdark Slaanesh cult

Posted on September 15th, 2017 under , , , , , . Posted by

What a pleasure ! What a pleasure it is to get a project done. A couple of months ago, I was playing with a bunch of old Slaanesh champions from Jes Goodwin and I ended up with a bunch of converted cultists which would very well fit with the first guy I had done in December.

Of wrinkled bones – Story of a Skolleyton

Posted on September 3rd, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

Hi all !
A few days ago, I saw a very nice proposition on the Oldhammer FB page, the kind you can hardly say no to…
Stuart K. offered a handful of Olley miniatures to the people who’d claim them first at the only condition that those models were painted within a month.
Now I do like to be challenged and I love Olley models even more ! This is how I ended up bagging this magnificent skeleton !

Halo Troynib – Life of a mutant in the underhive

Posted on August 31st, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

OK, so like always, when you have a deadline, you always believe you have plenty of time just to realise 2 days before you don’t. ALWAYS.

This time, there was a modeling challenge on the Emporium FB page and though I really considered giving up, the idea to get my model judged by Andy Chambers was too exciting to falter.
