It is good to start your day with ALMIGHTY ARCHAON! One of the biggest miniatures from Games Workshop! Massive look, tons of details, huuuge wings – Archaon Everchosen.

Shadespire – Garrek’s Reavers complete

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

Painting Garrek’s Reavers, the muscle-bound berserkers of Khorne turned out to be a lot more fun to paint than I was expecting. From the start I set myself two goals: Keep it simple, tabletop standard. Details like eyes, blending or multiple layers were avoided and I stuck to the basics …

Shadespire – Steelheart complete

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

After two streams and a little background painting Severin Steelheart’s warband for Warhammer Underworld: Shadespire is complete and ready for the arena. To summarise where I deviated from the recommended Games Workshop scheme, I began by applying the gold basecoat, first highlight and initial shade with the airbrush first (see …

Prologue: Steelheart’s Champions

Wednesday’s stream will be the first in a series for the newly launched Warhammer Underworlds: Shadespire arena miniatures game. I figured after my recent bout of Nurgle-loves-you-itis I’d take a bit of a break from the grimdark (*psst!* Not really a break; I just built a Plagueburst Crawler but that …

All is dust

Posted on October 18th, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

I had such plans and a really great intro for October, really I did. It went something along the lines of “The XIV Legion ~ fourteen years in the making”. Not making it up either; I first started my Death Guard back in 2003 for the 40K GT Finals and …

Blood Reaver Gallery and Skin Painting Guide

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

The last week has been a blur. I was on duty in the boarding house 3 nights in a row, and we’re just gearing up for half term. But I did get some painting done over the weekend!
Here are the school club’s Blood Reavers, finally painted up to a decent standard. I’m not doing anything more to them, as they’re there to die in droves anyway.


Ethnic diversity is a weird subject to mention in the same breath as orruks and aelves, but I do approve of variety in colours. There are three different skin tones here, one of which turned out a little too orange leading to a HILARIOUS name given to them by my students.

Caucasian skin:
Ushabti bone
Wash with Reikland fleshshade

Dark skin:
Mournfang Brown
Wash with Agrax Earthshade

Trump skin:
Tau Ochre
Wash with Reikland fleshshade

I really don’t like painting hordes, which has put me off Imperial Guard since the beginning of time, and part of that is down to the faff of painting skin tones. The above methods are great for quickly getting through a bundle of chaff units, and have a decent enough look to them for games.

I’m now a little inspired to do an Age of Sigmar army. And I think I have a unique enough slant on a well established faction to make that fun…

Until next time!

Schools League 2017: The First Age of Sigmar Skirmishes

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

The club started a few days ago, and I have some time to upload some of the images from the first few skirmishes.
There are some odd alliances popping up, and students get out all their new toys gathered over Summer. We’re kicking off with the Age of Sigmar mosh pit, with Stormcast Eternals rubbing shoulders with Bloodbound against Serphon and Kharadron Overlords. 


 



As you can see, a complete mess of a battle, with some very dodgy interpretations of the rules. But it’s beautiful to see for the simple fact that I had no part in it. The senior Initiates set it up themselves, giving the new player Neophytes units to roll dice with, and I was able to marshal a game for the absolute raw beginners.

I think we’re off to a flying start this year, and I can’t wait for the next session to get some team training going!

Until next time.
