Eldar Dire Avengers

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

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!

One more painting update for January…I finally finished up the first squad of Tallarn Roughriders!It’s really freaking cold outside today (where I always take pictures – because the light is so much better!) – so I didn’t mess around with setting up …

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!

Hot on the heels of the Tau Pathfinders, I finished up a Tau Ethereal….Tau Ethereal from Games Workshop.This figure has been in a half painted state for months. Like the Pathfinders I wasn’t really sure what colours to use. I didn’t want to use just …

I’ve been working on these Tau Pathfinders, on and off, for some time now. I finally got a chance to finish them up this weekend. I’d originally had five I picked up years ago – just to have as a team that could be used in an encounter in Rogue Trader …

Greetings to you all!I’m hoping to do something a little different with my hobby updates this year. Whilst it’ll still be a basic update on everything I’ve done in the week, I’m hoping to do more than just provide pics too, I’ll try and squeeze in litt…

Stormcast Eternals Warband for Warhammer Underworlds: Shadespire

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

Last month… or maybe the month before…? My friend John dropped off some miniatures for Warhammer Underworlds: Shadespire for me to paint for him. I don’t normally paint stuff for other people or do commissions – mostly because I am terrible at…

Posted on January 7th, 2018 under , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

I finished up a handful of Tallarn infantry this week. I painted most with the black headgear I’ve been using to denote Veterans. The primary reason I painted these was to use them as a Kill Team in Shadow War: Armageddon, but also painted up a heavy w…

Earlier this year I backed the Astropolis II Kickstarter from Lead Adventure Miniatures. I’d passed on the first Astropolis Kickstarter and had been kicking myself ever since, so when the second one came up, I went all in for the megaload – Hypers…

I haven’t managed to finish up the Shadespire minis. Screwy head and lack of focus made working on them a little difficult. Tanks are easy, though, so I finished up this Leman Russ tank that’s been haunting the edges of may painting desk for far too lo…

Tallarn Scout Sentinel Walker

I love these little scout sentinel walkers. I think their fun models and the fluff is fun. I have no idea if they’re at all useful in the game.I’m not so sure the rules match the fluff – I mean, they’re supposed to be reconnaissance vehicles – “The eye…

Hobby update – 27-11-17

Posted on November 27th, 2017 under , , , , . Posted by

Greetings all,
It’s been a couple of weeks since I last did a hobby update, so I figured I’d let you know where I was with everything. First up though, it’s my birthday at some point in the next 7 days, so I’m hoping that next week I’ll have a nice hobby haul to show you all!

In the meantime, please take a hop on over to my sister blog, the Grim Dark Brotherhood, where I’m starting to add more regular content now in terms of a tale of 3 gamers that we’re embarking on. You’ll soon even be able to see me in video format on our youtube channel, but I’ll blow all the trumpets and ring the bells etc when that launches.
