Posted on February 19th, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

I suppose it’s hard to let squats go so I recently got another one from Old School Miniatures. Now Jamie over at Oldschool Miniatures has commissioned the ever talented John Pickford to sculpt a model of the company’s mascot Eric.

The 8 horsemen of the Apocalypse – Chaos renegade riders

Posted on February 18th, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

OK, let’s start with the appropriate soundtrack shall we ? The 8 Horsemen of the Apocalypse deserve as much. ^^

Ok now, following my plans to have a sizeable chaos renegade army for Rogue Trader this year, I’ve taken some old models from the shelves. WHen I say old, I don’t only mean the model themselves are old but the conversion are too !

Secret Santa has struck ! – Orkish motivators

Posted on January 26th, 2018 under , , . Posted by

Last Christmas, I gave you my hear… no no no wait, sorry. Last Christmas a group of friends I have the pleasure to be part of have decided to have a little secret Santa amongst us with the very simple aim to each give and get a surprise model we’d paint in the following month !
Everybody loves surprise models right ?

Lurking in the underhive – Unreleased scavvies

Posted on January 22nd, 2018 under , , , , , . Posted by

With the release of the new Necromunda, I guess it’s pretty safe to say many of us are all excited about either coming up with a new band or updating an old one. I’m not fond of hard choices so I’ve decided to do both actually. The easiest part though was to update my scavvies since I just had a few new models to add.

Everyone loves a good inquisitor right ? Yeah me too. And what I love even more than that is Jes Goodwin models, I just love ’em. They’re my hobby happy place.
NowI’ve painted a variant of that model before but I was given this guy to paint for a friend so gladly came back to him.

Chaos Squats

Posted on January 6th, 2018 under , , , , , , . Posted by

Yes I know, squats again, well I guess it’s a form of coming out I guess. I love stunties, there I said it ! Now I’ve been considering getting back on my chaos renegade army for some time but you know how things are right ? There’s always a good excuse to do something else and as long as stuff gets done and painted, I don’t mind much actually. Things, is though, there’s been a combination of events lately that lead me to seriously consider what I’d do next for my chaos army.

Hello 2018 ! – Yearly Review !

Posted on January 3rd, 2018 under . Posted by

YUP… Yearly review, we’ve reached that time ! It’s honestly a good way for me to keep track of what I’ve done or should have done or just plan what I want to do next ! But since you’re all so eager to read what I have to say I won’t let you wait any longer.

Phat S’lann – Giant slaver toad from Katsina

Posted on December 25th, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

The end of the year is clearly not the perfect time to get anything meaningful done hobby wise but in the wirlwind of emergencies before leaving on holiday, I did manage to finish ONE final model !
I am very pleased I could get this particular one done as it’s one from Katsina Miniatures run by the most excellent Doti and Seán.

There are new dwarves in spaaaace !

Posted on December 21st, 2017 under , , , , . Posted by

Long time no see heh ? Well I didn’t want to spoil you so kept those little fellows secret until now… 
Now I suppose every self respecting oldschool enthusiast has a fondness for short hairy guys. Models. Short hairy guys models I mean.
Well lucky us, Uscarl Miniatures have decided to give us the possibility of getting our hands on brilliant space dwarves without having to sell a lung as well as plenty of other cool things !
The best part of it all ? Probably the fact those were sculpted by an oldschool legend : Kev Adams !

Monster manual special : The Cockatrix !

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

OK, let me get this straight right away, this is going to be one of those stupid posts, just so you know. You don’t have to say anything nice about it, I won’t mind (much).

OK now James Holloway from Gonzo History has initiated a little contest to create new monsters like those you can see in the original monster manual.
You know, the kind of monsters when you have more imagination than money or models !
The first step being to find a cheap toy, I found exactly what I needed !

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.
