"No, not Black Leaf! No, no!"

Posted on November 21st, 2017 under Posted by

I’ve been gaming for a long time. While I stick primarily to wargaming these days, I cut my teeth in the early eighties with Dungeons & Dragons, the grandaddy of fantasy gaming. Today fantasy RPGs are going through a bit of a renaissance, and while…

Elder Thing by RAFM

Posted on November 19th, 2017 under Posted by

Over the last few months I’ve spent my scant free time working (and reworking) a set of rules I’ve been writing up. I was jonesin’ to put paint to lead though and figured a one-off figure would be a nice break from staring at a word processor.I plucked…

Khorne Daemons off to a new home….

Posted on November 19th, 2017 under Posted by

Bit the bullet and sold of all of my Khorne Daemons over the weekend – with the exception of my Bloodthirster as I love the model.  With the demise of the excellent Khorne Daemonkin codex and my complete dislike of AoS I really had no more reason …

Leeman Russ completed

Posted on November 16th, 2017 under , , . Posted by

Finished my first Imperial Guard tank this morning.  Painting vehicles and large flat surfaces always a bit tricky when you only have the one small brush left that works but its turned out reasonably well.  Used same colours that are on my IG…

Working my way through my painting backlog. Finished off my remaining unpainted Harlequin players.  Changes to 8th meant I re-equipped many of them with Fusion Pistols.

Imperial Guard Commissar complete

Interesting figure to paint this one but he turned out fairly well in the end.  Slightly restricted in terms of colour at the moment as I had a massive clean out of my dried up and useless paints, and am down to just a single usable brush. St…

Harlequins vs. Orcs @ 1500pts

Posted on November 7th, 2017 under , , . Posted by

Another great game against Sam’s Orc horde.  Said it before but damn I love Orcs such a cool army.  If Deathmasque hadn’t come out with the cheap Harlequins I would have gone down that road.  So 1500pts which meant a couple of dozen Harl…

Imperial Guard squad finished

Posted on November 4th, 2017 under , , . Posted by

Completed my first Imperial Guard squad yesterday.  Still haven’t decided on a Regimental identity for them but there’s no rush.  In photographing them I also realized that I left mold lines on several models which I have removed since taking…

WIP – Imperial Guard

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

Started my next army project this week Adeptus Militarum or as they should be called Imperial Guard.  Was inspired by my copy of the Guard index and a re-reading of several Ciaphus Cain and Gaunts Ghosts novels.

Death Guard vs. Orcs @ 2000pts

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

Another enjoyable game vs. Sam’s Orc horde which includes a number of really good scratch built vehicles.  2000pts means a lot of Orcs and I do mean A LOT…. 140 Boys all up.  The game gave me my first opportunity to use my new Blightlord Te…

Really looked forward to getting these guys and with some free time on my hands its only taken me a few days to get them finished.  Very nice models as all the new sculpts are just disappointing that box set has so few options in terms of how you …
