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.

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.

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 !

Lucca C&G 2016: Gundam [part05]

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

Gundam is not a Japanese giant robot, it is an universe. Gunpla is a big business too. I still read new Gundam manga and new Gundam anime. But I don’t build more Gundam models because I don’t know where to put them in my house. However they are so beautiful. Some examples here took around […]

Lucca C&G 2016: Go Nagai [part04]

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

Go Nagai work is still popular not only here in Italy. A lot of new models of the same giant robots are produced. And some are reshuffled versions. I can’t count how many Mazinga variations are around.
At the end even an Italian proposal of a gia…

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.

Project: Desert Astra Militarum #1

It’s been a case of all-hobby, no-bloggy for the last few months. The new edition of 40k has reinvigorated my motivation to build and paint a decent-sized Astra Militarum army, that has been ticking along for quite a few years now. Here is the test model for my not-Tallarn desert infantry!

The lone shacks – Fogou Models

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

I’ve recently spent a lot of time on scenery from all sources and although it has made progression on models a bit more complicated it’s starting to pay off. I have a convention planned in half a year and I would really want to be able to fill a fancy table so there’s no other way to achieve this than to roll my sleeves up and get dirty !
I have many projects of scenery on the go but the first I’ve finished were those lone shacks from Fogou Models.

Back to basics – Hacking old lead like in the old days.

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

If you’ve ever read the little text at the top of his page, you might have guessed I’m a bit of a Jes Goodwin fan like many. Now the thing is, I started my journey into the hobby by buying chaos champions and warriors of his in 91 and although I did paint the first 2 as they were (with thick coats of enamels), I quickly tried to do my own conversions, inspired by the magnificent exemples in the books and magazines.

Those essential basics… – Making modelling sand

Posted on June 29th, 2017 under , . Posted by

Don’t know about you but there are ingredients in my hobby I rarely think about but which are actually essential to it.
I usually buy a huge pot of PVA glue every 4 years or so, 10s of drill bits every year, modelling knife blades too. Basing sand is one of those, but I only think about it every 5 years or so.
