Project: Desert Astra Militarum #1

Posted on November 5th, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

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.

Empoli Games 2016: second part

After an overview of what was around, in this post close-ups on miniatures in Empoli Games. A kit for a temple in 1/72 scale. I have to do something just like this in 28mm. One year or another. Always in 1/72 scale, some gods. Why I need a temple? To put decency to a terrain […]

Romics fall 2016: diabolik

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

Romics is not the place for exhibitions or talks about comics and authors, it is more focused on cosplay and gadgets. But this time there were really great exhibits. And the best was this one on Diabolik. I was amazed. Different reprints of the first number. Some modifications on the pages between different editions. The […]

Posted on April 4th, 2015 under , . Posted by

Felt like a quiet day so I painted my Coven models that I got from the KS. Very nice models apart from the Powerhouse who I just didn’t like. So I added some claws and a head piece . Still looks a bit static but its better. I also made up some the temporary minions […]
