Making Explosion Markers

Posted on February 21st, 2018 under . Posted by

I love a good spectacle, and nothing catches the eye like an over-the-top Michael Bay style fireball. I needed a few good explosions for the game I’m tinkering with, so took a shot at creating a few explosion markers of my own. The clump foliage method…

The Work (In Pogress) Continues

Posted on February 20th, 2018 under , , , , , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

When I got up this morning I decided that I was going to paint ten of the old Grenadier (now Mirliton) trooper figures. Nice simple figures with an almost standard uniform that even if I do give certain aspects of it a camouflage pattern, should be don…

Posted on February 17th, 2018 under . Posted by

I’ve had these civilian figures from the Astropolis and Colony 87 kickstarter primed and sitting on my painting shelf for years, another monument to a stalled project. I’ve been working diligently on some homebrew rules which require civilians as an in…

Hi All,I think I’ve passed the 24 hour window so I can share my four armed Ape with you.He is a resin affair from Bombshell miniatures that no longer appears to be available. I took the opportunity to use my Mesh roller from Green Stuff World for his b…

Last night we got in a second game of Shadow War: Armageddon. This time my Tallarn Astra Militarum faced off against Amanda’s Tau. I think this is the first action any of my Tallarn have seen!4-117018M41Sgt. Kassab’s squad of 2nd platoon, 5th company 4…

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…

Accidents

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

Not the major kind. More the fortunate (ish) coincidence kind. I made a determined effort to get the cultists done today. They are still not quite done and there is a little bit of detailing to be done on them. They would have been finished but I got a…

Shadow War: Armageddon – First Game

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

Since I got enough of the Cavern Terrain completed to actually play a game earlier in the day, I got the kids to try out a game of Shadow War: Armageddon with me. Well technically it’s Shadow War: Brind’s World – as it was taking place on Brind’s World…

TITANS – Big and Little

Posted on January 31st, 2018 under , , , , , . Posted by

Because I’m that special kind of stupid… I thought it would be a good idea once I got the Warhound Titan in 28mm… that I should go ahead and get an Epic scale one and paint them both in the same scheme!?”Epic Scale” Warhound Titan! That’s a 40mm ba…

Change Of Plan

Posted on January 29th, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

The plan yesterday was to finish off what was left of the chaos cultists, I finished prepping them for priming them today. It appears to be a day where the British weather is going to ruin any plans I have (no plan survives contact with the British wea…

Chaos Cultists Looking Less Chaotic

Posted on January 17th, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

Still on the subject of Games Workshop Chaos Cultists, they are a little closer to completion today and there are a few more in the way. A sense of of an overall colour scheme is starting to come together and, although there is still work to do, they a…

Backing A Kickstarter

Posted on January 3rd, 2018 under , , . Posted by

Today I have backed my first kickstarter. It seems like a lot of money to put up for something that I may never get but the need for this one was pretty strong. Most of my gaming mates have backed a kickstarter at some point. In the past there have a f…

The Last Jedi

Posted on December 20th, 2017 under , , . Posted by

Just seen The Last Jedi on a large 2D iSense screen with big sound, best way to see it. I enjoyed it, but there are a bunch of “why did they do that” moments and “well, if that’s how to destroy a massive spaceship then why don’t they do that all the time?”. Maybe that … Continue reading The Last Jedi

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…

Life has been busy, but in a good way. I’ve got a new job and still have to settle into the new routines. I haven’t actually neglected playing games and painting (though it’s going slower), but I didn’t find time…
