WIP: Garfy’s Orc Armies on Parade Board #2

Posted on September 28th, 2014 under , , , . Posted by

With the concept decided on, it’s time for the all important “dry fit”. Will the army actually fit on the board and where will I actually position the models. I’ve cut the boards to size and added some small raised areas. I’ve also constructed a tower …

WIP: Garfy’s Orc Armies on Parade board #1

Posted on September 23rd, 2014 under , , , . Posted by

I've decided to enter Armies on Parade this year. This year, it's only a store level competition. There is no judging final at Games Day (or Warhammer Fest as it's now known). Judging for Armies on Parade will be held on 25th October. So I …

Its Hammer Time!

Posted on September 20th, 2014 under , , . Posted by

Mt Maunganui Club – great venue!Back in June I headed down to Tauranga with some old friends to play some Warhammer. I haven’t played for something like five years and I have a bunch of armies gathering dust and I keep finding excuses to not play. Luck…

I’m Back… and I’ve been busy!

Posted on September 15th, 2014 under , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

I’ve been a bit slack (I say that a lot) on the blog front over the past few months. Between work, home, hobby time… and some World of Tanks I have found it difficult to get act together. Hopefully over the next few weeks I am going to get caught up …

BOYLdrick – The Oldhammer Goblin (and regiments of renown)

Posted on September 2nd, 2014 under , , , , , . Posted by

So here he is, the Oldhammer Goblin also known as BOYLdrick ! This is actually one of the first goblins I've ever painted (if I don't count the 2nd ed gretchin I painted last year for Orctober). And what better starting point than a model by th…

Posted on August 31st, 2014 under , , . Posted by

That's right, I now have two Boss models I can play with the Arabyan Carpet. Faithful followers of ToP will remember the first one but I must confess that I love this guy so much more.More after the jump »

Back to the Brushes 92

The return of the Black Shields with another three pre-slotta orcs being worked on at present. These like the Moorish Spearmen have been languishing around the corner of the painting table since the beginning of this year.Time to move them on to the ra…

Been making some good progress on this guy. Since my last post I added a few more bits to him, primed him and slopped some paint on the little bugger.More after the jump »

It wasn't too long ago that I completed this guy. As I was painting the checks on him I thought up this guy and last night I got him assembled to this point.More after the jump »

Forest Goblin Test

Posted on July 30th, 2014 under , , , . Posted by


Here is my test Forest Goblin, I even managed to do the base. I am not 100% convinced yet on the basing. It is more or less what I usually do but so far so good, eh? As for the model itself I am happy. The green is the same as the Night Goblins. With s…

Horrible Spiders

Posted on July 24th, 2014 under , , , . Posted by


I think the weirdest thing about the Forest Goblin Spider Rider’s mount is that at a distance of two or so feet in a darkened room they look all too convincing.However I managed to get forty of these models I don’t know. Even though it would look aweso…

Night Goblins done… for now

Posted on July 22nd, 2014 under , , , . Posted by


I finally managed to finish my second regiment of Night Goblins. I manage to snatch about half an hours painting every evening after work and some longer stretches at the weekends. These thirty were easy enough to paint too as the models while excellen…

Warhammer Quest – Base Set Complete (Monsters)

Posted on July 18th, 2014 under , , , , , , , . Posted by

It seems like it has been too long since I’ve made a post, and it’s probably because I underestimated how long it would take me to finish the Models for the base set of Warhammer Quest.  I will say that my goal was to not paint or work on anything…

Showcase: Orcs & Goblins, Night Goblin Boss on Arabyan Carpet

Posted on July 11th, 2014 under , , . Posted by

I have had very little paint time for past two weeks and this one guy took up all of it. Totally worth it! He was a blast to work on and the finished model is just the right amount of silliness.More after the jump »

Yet More Night Goblins

Posted on July 10th, 2014 under , , , . Posted by


I am slowly working on my Night Goblin Arrer Boyz at the moment. Work is once again busy and combined with good weather and a few beer festivals I am supplying I really don’t have as much time as I would like. I do get to squeeze in about an hour a day…

Miniature Monday: Savage Orcs greenskinized!

Posted on July 7th, 2014 under , , , . Posted by

Strange title but if you saw an post I made a while ago (found here) you understand what I mean. I have made my ungreenskinz green, not by that much though in my opinion and I do think I like this version better and I think it will make the the whole a…

WIP: Orcs & Goblins, Night Goblin Boss on Arabyan Carpet

Posted on July 4th, 2014 under , , . Posted by

Lately, in my games with my Night Goblin army I have been taking a Boss with the Arabyan Carpet (either Warboss or Big Boss depending on the points limit). They add a flexible, fast moving warmachine hunter, or in some cases — a cheap piece of chaff….

Nasty Night Goblins

Posted on July 1st, 2014 under , , , . Posted by


I finally finished the last model in this horde. Forty night goblins can take a while to paint.I still have to make sure that I didn’t miss any detail. There is always something left out I find. I also need to decide what I am doing with their bases.I …

I have absolutely no time at the moment for just about anything especially keeping this blog up to date. I have been slowly painting of an evening and here is the current WIP of my Night Goblins.I am going to get my long neglected Orc and Goblin army t…

Poll: Should I paint my ‘un’greenskinz green?

Posted on June 4th, 2014 under , , . Posted by

I haven’t done anything with my Orcs & Goblins for a long time, and part of it is because I got tired of colorscheme and in this case mainly that they aren’t green. In my opinion they do look good in the skin color I have, but they may look better …

Really glad that Defeng has joined the Blood in the Badlands Campaign held at Titan. He put a 2000 point force and off we went to Titan Games for our game. Added 3 Trolls, 2×5 Wolves to my list from the extra pointsI didn’t actually bring the NG S…

Ork and Forest Goblins – green wave of WiPs

Posted on May 25th, 2014 under , , . Posted by

This week I haven’t had much time to paint again. I’ve managed to sneak 30 minutes of hobby time here and there, and moved slightly forward with my green projects and built some other stuff, which I’ll show on a different occasion ;) Ork Stormboy #2 is …

Forest Goblins batch painting – part 1

Posted on May 21st, 2014 under , . Posted by

All the gobbos come from the Arachnarok kit. Below you can see the airbrushing part, a base for skin. It was suppose to be quick and easy batch paint job, but it took a while, mainly because I gave the paint some time to dry – I used a lot of thinner t…

Batrep: Night Goblins vs High Elves

Posted on May 14th, 2014 under , , , . Posted by

I played this battle last week and meant to put it up sooner but work took the better part of my time. Here it is. I played a 1800 points of Night Goblins led by Snarsnik against the High Elves of Alarielle played by Dennis Sng. This was part of the Bl…
