Hobby update week 18 – a wanderer returns

Posted on May 8th, 2018 under , , , , , . Posted by

Hi all! Turns out I haven’t dropped off the face of the earth after all (though I do spend most of my days now below sea level).

In truth, I’ve been finding less time for hobby related stuff with my new job, and the blog is the thing that’s taken the hit I’m afraid, so posts will be more sporadic for a while I think.

I finally finished up the Shadowsword! I had picked it up on Boxing Day and started assembling shortly thereafter, but then, y’know, got distracted… Or, perhaps, realized I had other things that were higher priorities…?Shadowsword – from Games Work…

My partner does play miniature games with us. She even likes having her own force. She can’t be bothered to paint anything and very rarely buys anything – usually only when I say “well, if you want your own, I’ll paint if for you, if you buy it…” I p…

Posted on March 26th, 2018 under , , , , . Posted by

The Astra Militarum Codex refers to this tank as an “unsubtle built hose” due to it’s Heavy20 type – with the new Grinding Advance rule that’s 40 (FORTY!) dice to throw at one unit. I… couldn’t resist putting one together for my Leman Russ troop.As m…

Eldar Dire Avengers

The Eldar were my very first 40K army. That was 30 years ago. I sold them all off about 25 years ago. For $40. Canadian. Still kicking myself. In reality it was probably only a few dozen of those original Rogue Trader era Guardians, a Lascannon and cre…

Hobby update week 6 – I need to paint something other than purple!

Posted on February 12th, 2018 under , , , , . Posted by

Greetings all, welcome to week 6’s hobby update for 2018! I’m still all about Squaduary at the moment, and I’m still settling into finding a new routine for posting and painting, so please bear with me for a while as the blog settles down with my new job. Given my ridiculous pledge for Squaduary though I’ve found little time in the evenings to write new posts and get myself prepared for the week ahead so you’ll have to make do with this kind of thing for a bit!

Hobby update 2018 Week 4

Posted on January 29th, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

Greetings all, welcome to week 4 of the year and my hobby update! It’s been a quieter week this week I’m afraid due to real life – I’ve changed jobs and started at my new place today. What that means is I spent much of the weekend either celebrating with people I’ve know for as many as 15 years, or recovering from those celebrations/preparing for commuting to work for the first time in my life. Still, things progressed and continue to do so!
