Painting Guide: Khorne Blood Bound

Posted on June 22nd, 2017 under , , , , . Posted by

Ok, I know I promised a rocket video, but I need to edit out the students. Child Protection is something any teacher worth their chalk takes seriously.

Instead here’s my guide to painting Khorne Bloodbound:

khorne painting guide
Don’t bother with the brush… just dunk him in there. Khorne loves that.

Ok, that’s not how I really paint these guys, and here’s a link to an actual painting guide. The conical flask there is full of fake blood I’m using for a murder mystery.



Blood group testing

The samples out of the blood group test teaching packet looked more like water melon juice than blood. I’m just doing some custom samples now.

What? Theatricality is important in the classroom. Why wouldn’t I spend my free time making realistic looking blood samples?

Until next time!

Age of Sigmar Painting Guide: Quick Blood Warriors

Posted on May 11th, 2017 under , , , , . Posted by

It might seem odd in the run up to Warhammer 40K 8th Edition to do a guide on painting Age of Sigmar models, but there is a rational reason.Right now everything is up in the air about the new edition, and whilst we see the droplets of information rain …

New Dawn Flotilla: Outcast Shining Spear Prototype

Posted on March 29th, 2017 under , , , , . Posted by

Laptop still dead, but nothing stops the Tabletop Teacher Train*!

Here’s a picture of the prototype for my Outcat Shining Spears.



Shining Spear Outcast Warrior

Rather than have traditional Aspect Warriors, I’m making all my specialist troops different factions from the Eldar race. The New Dawn Flotilla is a motely collection of ships that have broken away from the Lugganath Craftworld, in search of a new path for the Eldar to reclaim their future.

These Shining Spears, along with some Warp Spiders, are part of a trophy hunting corsair group, out to hunt the biggest and strongest creatures out there. Why? Because after a few hundred years of floating through space, you’d be bored too.

I particularly like his flaming spear, but absolutely hate the paint on the skin. It’s a little too pale. Does anyone have any suggestions on making a more tanned tone?

Until next time!

* Reports, Broken Laptops, Anniversaries, Birthdays and Mother’s Day are things that have been known to stop the Tabletop Teacher Train.

New Dawn Flotilla: Eldar Farseer

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

Bleh. I am slipping from my daily schedule. What can I say? Reports, a wedding anniversary and Mother’s Day all collapsed into a singularity of time, meaning none was left for hobbying, let alone blogging. Here’s a picture of my completed Eldar Farseer…
