Normandy: Carentan Photodump

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

Carentan was a key objective for the US forces as it was a crucial linkup point between UTAH and OMAHA. This decent sized town was the focus of a lot of activity following D-Day. I’ve played two campaigns over the … Continue reading

I holidayed with my family in Normandy this year and we were lucky enough to visit a number of WWII sites. Here’s a photodump from Bréville and the (excellent) Pegasus Bridge Memorial/Museum. If you know nothing about the capture of … Continue reading

Saga – More Viking Bondi

Posted on November 13th, 2012 under , , , . Posted by

I’ve already shown some of these guys, but here is the remainder of my 6pt force. In total it’s a Warlord, three units of Hirdmen (of which a unit could double as Berserkers), two units of Bondi and a unit of Thralls. I’ll do a video …

Saga – Viking Bondi

Posted on August 1st, 2012 under , , , . Posted by

I finished these guys last night. Definitely not by best work, but they’ll do. The rims on the shields could do with a bit of darkening. This is my first of two units of Bondi – the second unit of Bondi will have predominantly blue shields and I’ll mix the units when I field them. […]

Vlad and the Eliminators

Posted on April 29th, 2012 under , , , . Posted by

Sounds like the name of a really bad 80′s hair band (were there any good ones?)! I finished painting these before the tournament in Belfast last week, but didn’t have a chance until not to take proper photos. I speculated on what good assassins the Eliminators would be under Epic Vlad’s feat, but I underestimated […]

Legion of Everblight Raptors: Complete

Posted on August 1st, 2011 under , , , , . Posted by

Last month’s Lost Hemisphere “Paint the Target” challenge was to paint a full unit. I was thinking about painting my Raptors until I looked at all of hose pieces of pewter in early July and decided that assembling them was going to be too much hassle. I was busy with work and home life (2 […]

Harkevich, what is he good for?

Posted on July 19th, 2011 under , , , , , . Posted by

I’ve been testing Harkevich recently and so far I’m not impressed. I’m trying him out for a tournament that’s coming up on Sunday, but I’ve yet to figure out what he’s good at. Part of his feat and the Broadside spell are obviously intended for ranged ‘jacks, but therein lines the problem. The Khadoran ‘jacks […]

Malifaux – All Ryled Up!

Posted on July 14th, 2011 under , , , . Posted by

When I picked up the Lucius Crew I was looking forward to painting all of the models in the box apart from Ryle. I didn’t really like the Frankenstein look of the model, in particular I thought the eyes looked goofy! When I started to paint him a couple of days ago the model began […]

Posted on July 2nd, 2011 under , , , . Posted by

Last month’s Lost Hemisphere “Paint the Target” challenge was to paint a character (or character unit). In a fit of madness I decided to paint Alexia and twelve Risen. It wasnt too bad as there were only four distinct sculpts, Alexia and three different Risen (undead grunts from Khador, Protectorate and Cygnar units). This month’s […]

Anthony and I played a 35pt game last night with Saeryn facing off against pDenny. The scenario was Process of Elimination from Steamroller 2011. In this scenario there are two parallel areas in the centre of the board that each player can score one control point off of, the first player to two points wins. […]

Joe and I played out a 25SS game between Lady Justice and McMourning this evening. Joe had the “Destroy the Evidence” strategy and I had “Deliver a Message”. We’re both still learning the game and we had to consult the rules a fair bit, but it was great fun! Here’s an attempt at a narrative […]

I’ve always been a fan of pButcher, but have yet to try his epic version. I painted this model up a while ago, but didn’t get around to taking decent photos until recently. I procrastinated a long time before painting this model, but I’m not sure why. He’s easy to paint and even the base […]

I completed Samael Hopkins ahead of a game tomorrow. Here’s a couple of photos – I painted this model using a variation of the under lighting technique. First it was undercoated white and then washed with a watered down codex grey. All of the colours were applied as washes (apart from the flesh and the […]

Frozen North – Campaign Review

Posted on February 7th, 2011 under , , , , , , , . Posted by

Undying Loyalty Toruk’s spies had failed him. The Scourge Bringer had been rediscovered and he only found out about it weeks after. This failure would have to be rectified, but in the meantime he needed to retrieve the weapon from Everblight’s minions. Toruk does not like to rush things, but in this instance he had […]
