Houses of the city – Post-apoc/Sci-fi scenery

Posted on May 21st, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

In the last couple of weeks I had the chance to play a fair load of games and for the second part for the french Oldhammer event (posts HERE and HERE, I had decided to build and paint a bit more scenery to have a good table.
Now I’ve started these a few months ago but like often I did most of the job and then couldn’t get myself to do what was left.

Necromunda 2017 and Dracula’s America in Space

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

A couple of weeks ago, I had the chance to meet up with my good friend Cheetor/Sho3box. Now both of us have played our fair share of Necromunda from its initial release up until the past years with the Inquisimunda add-on but both of us had yet to really test Necromunda 2017.
Now the game is a sort of ‘go to’ for many of us, it’s a game that ‘feels’ natural to us but that means we might miss the difference and changes in the new version by just repeating what we know.
That’s why we decided to first play the 2 tutorials in the core rulebook to test it.

Oldschool gaming and a french Oldhammer Event !

Posted on May 14th, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

A bunch of handsome french and belgian oldschool players !
Those last 2 weeks have been pretty packed with hobby in all its forms, from painting to modelling and even more gaming !
I’ve played a great number of games of all kinds from old to new, quick to long, small to large and all were simply brilliant !
Be warned, this post will cover many games with a stupid amount of photos !
This all started 2 weeks ago when I had the pleasure to fly to Ireland to visit my good friend Sho3box/Cheetor. Seeing him was already delightful but you know how it goes, when in Rome…

Battletech !

Posted on May 9th, 2018 under , . Posted by

A week ago, I had absolutely no idea these would be painted or that I would even have them…
That’s what it is to have great people around you. Let me just explain a few things.
This WE, a fistful of friends and I are gathering at a convention in North-Eastern France to have a few oldschool games and amongst them, my pal Goulven has offered to GM some Battletech (providing table and miniatures as well).
Now It’s been more than 15 years since I last played any Battletech and the time before this one was so long ago I cannot remember.
Fast forward a few years up until last week when I was in Ireland in the exquisite company of my friend Cheetor/Sho3box and here he is getting a bagful of models to pick from…

Wilson Ochtar – Octopus extraordinaire

Posted on May 7th, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

Everything happens for a reason, even the most stupid ones (often the most stupid ones). It’s been over a year now my WIPster friends and I have had the excellent Wilson in mind. You just cannot imagine the surprise we had when GW decided to release the Idoneth Deepkin and amongst them no other than our favourite invertebrate !

Scatter Terrain from Fogou !

Posted on April 30th, 2018 under , , . Posted by

Here’s the second half of the Fogou scenery I did earlier. This time it’s all the scatter terrain and bits you can use to decorate the tabletop with.
Like for the rest of the Fogou pieces, it’s remarkably well cast, requires little to no preparation and the details are probably finer than on some of the models you’ll use it with.

Slaanesh Renegades

Posted on April 24th, 2018 under , , , , , , . Posted by

I’m still painting more recruits for my renegade army and this month, I thought I could add some of the Slaaneshi. After all, I’ve already  spent some time on Slaanesh this past year so it was time for me to get the marines done !
And since I had to paint 400 points I thought I could just as well add that Dreadnought I unboxed a while ago

A farm for a battle – Fogou scenery

Posted on April 5th, 2018 under , , . Posted by

Something a little different for us today, something I don’t do enough but I had the perfect occasion and targets to do so this time : scenery.
The excellent Chris from Fogou Models has offered a couple of friends and myself the possibility to paint some of his upcoming models and I have to say after painting the brilliant shacks he had done earlier, I was more than excited to put my brushes on more of his work !

The Dustfarers – Ash Waste Nomads between the hives of Necromunda

Posted on April 2nd, 2018 under , , , , , . Posted by

Well Necromunda doesn’t stop to inspire many of us and I’ve found it to be the perfect excuse to go back and dwell in the leadpile to find old projects that could be good to tick off the list !
Ash waste nomads were exactly that !
As you may have noticed, I have a very deep fondness for Confrontation (Necromunda’s ancestor) and I have to say having a gang of each entry in the game would be quite of an achievement for me. ^^
Two opportunities have made the Ash waste nomads climb to the top of the painting queue : Necromunda and Dracula’s America.
What’s the link with Dracula ?
I’m going to tell you.

March of the titans ! – Imperial warlord titan

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

So this is March, month of Mars, like in the God. So what better month to paint titans ? None, that’s right.
Now I’ve had the will to paint in a different scale for quite a while but like all the god plans and bright ideas, I’ve always postponed it because of better newer projects.

Rogue trader Keeper of secrets

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

Soooooo, still working on my “tale of several gamers” entry for March, I’ve managed to paint something easier. Since We’re supposed to paint 400pts a month and I have painted 1100 in 2 I thought I could use the spare points and make March an easier month with about 250 pts worth of Demonic lust. ^^

Lady Woodgin – Slaanesh Cult Dominatrix

Posted on March 4th, 2018 under , , , , , , . Posted by

Hey, you might remember the six sinners from earlier, well; I’ve been meaning to upgrade the team from quite some time now but was looking at how to do it right. The arrival of the new Necromunda was the right trigger for this for 2 reasons :

– The magnificent Escher models in the box
– The upcoming chaos cult list in WD.
Oh yes, chaos cults in the underhive, that’s how groovy it’s going to get.

The stripper – Everyday life of an oldhammerer

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

See that imperial look, that nobility and the high standard of moral values Karl Franz embodies ? Of course you don’t. Nothing here to see but inch think layers of hard enamels and gruesome gore effects… URGH…
But hey ! What’s the matter, all we need is a good seesion at the strip club. We’ll show those enamels (with Vincent Price’s voice) the evil of the strrripper !
Now it had been a while since I last had a model so poorly painted to strip. Like 5 years ago actually. I’m going to show some models I’ve stripped before, just to attest (did I need to prove anything ?) that I’m not exactly new in stripping town.

Warhammer underwolds Shadespire – Garrek’s Reavers

Posted on February 25th, 2018 under , , . Posted by

It took me a while after Steelheart’s champions but I finally managed to paint the second half of my box of Shadespire !
To be honest, this is the first time I paint all the models from a single box so that’s quite an achievement ticked !
Just like for the Stormcast, painting the Reavers proved to be quite more challenging than expecting due to my muscle memory being entirely focuses on painting old lead.

The 8 horsemen of the Apocalypse – Chaos renegade riders

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 !

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

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.
