Sector Mechanicus Pt.1

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

I’ve finally managed to get working on my Necromunda and 40k terrain. Here is a short video showing the first of many buildings I’ll be working on over the coming weeks. I’ve a campaign coming up, well a few actually, and I need terrain for them. With …

Casting 40k Terrain: Initial Tests

Posted on September 22nd, 2017 under , , , , . Posted by

With the New 40k coming out and the imminent release of Necromunda, I’ve found myself needing some terrain. I bought a Ferratonic Incinerator but I quickly realised that this wasn’t going to go far in covering a 4×4 table, never mind a 6×4. I can’t rea…

Sanctifier Test Squad

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

I’ve been painting some Warhammer 40k recently and these are the result, my first combat squad of marines. I’ve painted a few Space Marines over the years, individual models here and there. I have never however managed to get a squad, albeit a small on…

40k Campaign – Malleus

Posted on September 6th, 2017 under , , , , . Posted by

My map making for 40K continues apace. I love the background provided in the Forgeworld supplements, especially the cut aways to various planetary descriptions and such. They provide a lot of flavour and atmosphere without it being too dense. I decided…

Warboss Grimrak

Posted on September 1st, 2017 under , , , , , , . Posted by

I recently finished my Orruk Megaboss, Grimrak. He came out surprisingly well for the amount of time I put into him. I’ve slowly been collecting Ironjawz over the last few months and painting them up. As a lazy blogger I haven’t been posting shots up b…

40k Campaign – The Thorn Sub-sector

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

We are starting a few Warhammer 40K campaigns in my local area and online very soon. One has actually kicked off on VASSAL already. I’ll be playing in them all and as such I wanted to have a map that we could use to track where the action is taking pla…

Legends of the Old West roster

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

When it came to playing Legends of the Old West I quickly realised that I had a problem. The models are great but slightly generic which makes telling them apart during the game a little difficult. I used to paint the names of each of the gang members …

Wasteland Bases

Posted on May 2nd, 2017 under , , , , , . Posted by

It’s not the greatest of photographs but I think it gets the message across. I usually always do the same type of bases for my armies as it makes it easier to mix and match them as I want and it fits with my terrain collection. For the Ironjawz however…

WIP Ironjawz

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

I’ve finally made a start on my Orruk Brutes. These are interesting models. This one is at least thirteen pieces to put together but the result is great. The detail is sharp and crisp and the effect is very layered, something impossible only a few year…

Pulling out my Chaos

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

As I said in my last post I’ve been getting some games of Age of Sigmar in recently.  As I don’t really have a suitable army I’ve taken out my old Chaos stuff from when I started this blog up. We are only playing 1000 point games. The armies are s…

Into the Wild West

Posted on April 12th, 2017 under , , . Posted by

I drew up a map for our upcoming Wild West campaign. We are going to use the Legends of the Old West rules. I’m starting off with a Mountain Man posse with plans to also use a Lawman posse. I haven’t played before despite having the rule book since it …

Ironjawz, how did that happen?

Posted on April 10th, 2017 under , , , , , , . Posted by

It seems I’ve started a new Warhammer army… I’m not sure how that happened. It’s been nine years since I really started a new army for Warhammer. Actually I suppose the Stormcast I got count as a new one too. I’ve been eager to get some Ironjawz sinc…

January Progress

Posted on February 1st, 2017 under , , . Posted by

I made some progress on my projects this month though The Walking Dead has interfered with the plans somewhat.I somehow managed to make the most progress with my Malifaux stuff, due I think to a local league starting up which I won’t be really taking a…

Time for something a little different

Posted on January 9th, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

One of the things I really want to do this year is to get back into some roleplaying games. I have played a few short ones recently but the plan is to run something that lasts a little longer. The usual go to system for my group, with me as the Story T…

I am back, again.

Posted on January 4th, 2017 under Posted by

I need to get back on track and do some painting. I have barely done any over the last year and while I have been blaming not having a clear hobby focus I realy think it comes down to me being a bit lazy. Well that and a severe lack of free time. I sta…

A Second Step into Frostgrave

Posted on January 27th, 2016 under , , . Posted by

I completed my second game of Frostgrave last week and the system is slowly growing on me. I can definitely say it is fun. We are playing a campaign, you can find my opponents views here. The demands on a terrain collection that the game makes are huge…

Bloodbowl Ogre

Posted on January 25th, 2016 under , , , . Posted by

My random painting continues apace. This time I pulled out an Ogre from the depths of my lead pile. I recently brough two of my Bloodbowl teams to Germany as some mention of a league at the local club had been made. My humans are painted but I always l…

Railroad Terrain

Posted on January 21st, 2016 under , , , , . Posted by

Railroad terrain looks great on a Warmachine or Malifaux board and despite the fact I don’t play those games offline anymore I still want to get these pieces painted up. These railway pieces have been lying around in my cabinet for a long time and so …

A step further into Frostgrave

Posted on January 19th, 2016 under , , . Posted by

I played my first campaign game of Frostgrave last week and my second is coming up tonight. It was fun. I still hold a few reservations about the game but more on those later. The game played far better than the first. Mainly because we understood the …

Celestial Vindicators Liberators

Posted on January 18th, 2016 under , , , , , . Posted by

There is nothing as good as a bunch of finished miniatures. I am pretty happy with how these Stormcast came out and I think the colour scheme of the Celestial Vindicators was a good choice to base mine upon. I think the more muted tones suit the models…

A Foray into Frostgrave

Posted on January 15th, 2016 under , . Posted by

Somehow I managed to start yet another fantasy system. this time it is Frostgrave. Owen from Farfarawy.org modified a VASSAL module to allow us to try the system out remotely. As it is relatively simple we were able to get a game done without too much …

Celestial Vindicator Liberator Prime

Posted on January 13th, 2016 under , , , , , . Posted by

Finally this model is complete and the regiment is too. I will take some group shots tomorrow and post it up on Friday or Monday. The fact that there is a little more gold on this model actually made him faster to paint. I am hoping that this will make…

Another Vindicator

Posted on January 7th, 2016 under , , , , , . Posted by

The fourth is complete and the end is in sight, for this regiment at least. Again nothing special here beyond what you have seen on the previous three. I still can’t decide upon the shoulder pad scheme and I haven’t even attempted to improve the hammer…
