"Monsters and Robots" or "why I love Rogue trader"

Amongst all the miniatures that are filling my painting range, I managed to nail a couple by settings the standards low and by using dry times of washes and things like that. It even gave me the occasion to enter them for Chico's Big guy week.First…

It’s getting close to the end of April now so I thought I would share with all what I have got done so far. At the beginning of the month I set a very modest aim as I knew I would be busy this month, and I am very glad I did now. Thankfully I have pa…

Owyn’s first model

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

Owyn has been playing D&D with his brother.  His first character was a thief.  He got frustrated by the fact that he was squishy and didn’t fight very well.  For his second character he decided that he wanted a fighter.

Lips pursed in concentration.

I backed the first Bones kickstarter.  This means I have a ton of D&D style characters.  I pulled a couple of dozen out and let each boy pick

Since then I have played almost exclusively against American forces and so my painting efforts were not leading to getting painted miniatures on the table. So now that I […]

Stormtrooper Test Shot

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

I’ve finished the first stormtroopers from the batch I bought a month ago from Rodrick. I’m quite happy with how he turned out – especially as shading white armor has always been a massive pain in the *** for me. Also, the notches on the base of the he…

I can’t believe I forgot to post these guys! Infections and plagues spread across warzones. Most of the time they are entirely natural in origin, but occasionally it is something else entirely.  Nyarlathotep’s servitor infection slowly twists the …
