Turns out I’m not dead after all!

Posted on June 20th, 2017 under , , . Posted by

Greetings all!

I’m happy to announce that I’m not dead, and not even not dead in an ‘on the corpse cart’ Monty Python kind of way.

No, actually I went on holiday, but as is my lack of organisation I hadn’t got any posts stacked up waiting to be published whilst I was away.

Hobby update 30/5/17 – slaves, slaves everywhere, but still nothing actually finished!

Posted on May 30th, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

Greetings all, as always I’m a little off-schedule thanks to the Bank Holiday, but in other news, at least that meant I got loads of painting done this week!

Seriously, first I have to give thanks to my wife for taking our kids up to see her family and leaving me behind, and then also thanks to my pal Martin for coming over and keeping me company while we painted. For many hours.

8th edition – Primaris Space Marines

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

Greetings all – today I’m skipping over some of the last rules snippets we’ve had from GW (they’ll be at the bottom of the post) to focus on something that is a little higher up in my sphere of interest. Primaris Space Marines.

These guys are the next generation of Space Marines, developed in secret by Archmagos Belisarius Cawl at the behest of Roboute Guilliman at the end of the Horus Heresy. For 10,000 years Cawl has worked in secret on developing these guys and now he’s finished (presumably once the project was complete, he realised he had to go and wake up his client!) Guilliman is shipping them out to various locations across the galaxy to reinforce the Space Marine Chapters to allow him to conduct his Indomitus Crusade.

Greetings all, here’s a quick look into the rubble-strewn landscape that is my painting table this week. Today, given the models that I’ve been working on this week, I’m going to take a quick look into a question that has vexed many a gamer over the years. How do I paint white?
