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…

Thor’s Workbench: Chaos Maulerfiend (PIP #3)

Posted on April 13th, 2014 under , , , , , , , , . Posted by


At this stage the Maulerfiend is done and I’m just working on the basing, as you’ll see below. Not a lot to say other than I’m glad to be done with this thing. Like the Heldrake, I really like the model but painting it was a chore. Th…

Well the deed is done #warmongers, I’ve just sent out the pairings emails for the 2014 round of the #warmongers #miniswap! 18 lucky people are now paired up and will be sending each other a lovely miniature (just the one mind, this isn’t a regiment painting service!), to apply some paint to. There are plenty of pairings […]

So I wound up missing Trumpeter Salute over in Vancouver not because work had shipped me out of town (which I was expecting, except the project is delayed) but more or less because I couldn’t get organized to get myself … Continue reading

Servants of Nyarlathotep

Posted on April 8th, 2014 under , , , , , . Posted by

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 …

Well i have already started on making up a few of the models i need and decided to start with the platoon command. With this i wanted the commander to look a little bit different to the sergeants so have attempted to do something i have never done befo…

Palanquin of Nurgle

Posted on April 3rd, 2014 under , , . Posted by

Another part of the Lord of Skulls commission is this Great Unclean One, converted to ride atop a Nurgle palanquin. The body of this is made from the Chaos Warshrine. I like the Warshrine, and I think it works well as an armored palanquin. I […]

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

Finally got the base done on my Storm Raven. Yes, yes, I know. It seems silly that I did the base before I did the Storm Raven. I don’t even have the Raven fully assembled yet. However, here’s the pics of the finished base.

On August 30th Last year, I posted about how I had taken Tartan Skirmish Radio off the air and was planning to stopped being a Henchman due to a few different reasons. Well, I never did actually stop being a Henchman… And the 1st ever Scottish GT was a blast. I did take an enforced […]

The annual Analogue Painting Challenge is over.  It passed in a flash, and yet the beginning feels like it was years ago.  As is traditional, and true to my character, it’s time for a quick retrospective of what I accomplished.

Fimir – Odhrán

Mr Saturday

The fianna fimm reboot continues. I’ve finished the unit champion, Odhrán the finmor. I’m much happier with the skin now, so I’ll re-do the rest of the fianna to match. I added some freehand to the axe as it was a bit plain, and while I do love this m…

Hey folks, I managed to finally get the walking Lord of Skulls finished, and get some photos up. I had fun painting this guy. Because of his size, I wanted to find a way to make the armour interesting, without spending too much time blending […]

Mr Saturday

Having recently received various packages of lead-based goodness, I had call to employ the dreaded Nitromors. I usually use Dettol, but some of the latest lead treasures had substantial amounts of paint and glue on them. Nothing scours a miniature to t…

Work is slowly progressing on my Maulerfiend. Not much of an update from the last other than getting the fiery glow effect in place on the stomach and smoke stacks. Actually, considering the time it took to get that glow effect in place (don’t as…

Soviets slowly getting painted

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


I managed to do a bit more work on my 28mm WWII Soviet figures this evening. I suspect that trying to paint 40+ infantry in one go was probably a bad idea and I will, in the future work on single squads and teams. The painting in large batches is a holdover from my past […]
