Greetings all, this is going to be something of a different hobby update post to normal, as the bank holiday here has yet again messed my internal clock mechanisms up (I’m currently on my first day back at work after the break, so feel like it’s Monday, when in fact it’s Wednesday and I’ve realised I’m two days behind my normal schedule!

So, basically I’ve got my normal hobby update stuff, followed by a generic news update – aren’t you all so lucky!

The road to competence parts 8 and 9

Posted on April 6th, 2017 under , , , , . Posted by

Greetings all, welcome to my road to competence series once more, and I’m now starting to get a good group of games under my belt, getting much more confident about the units I’m bringing to games. I’m pretty settled on a 1500pt ‘standard’ list now, so at that point we of course decided to mess things up completely by playing a 1250pt game of Capture the Squig.

After that, I went back to my 1500pt list to take on my old faves, the Dark Eldar.

Unboxing – Triumvirate of the Primarch – Part Three

Posted on March 31st, 2017 under , , , , , . Posted by

So we’ve looked at Grand Master Voldus, Warden of the Librarius…now lets have a look at Roboute Guilliman, Primarch of the Ultramarines…

“A strange fate binds Roboute Guilliman, Grand Master Voldus and the Fallen Angel Cypher together. They walk a path of providence; though whether it ends in damnation or deliverance, none can say. On the battlefield, this triumvirate of warriors is an unstoppable, inspiring force, bolstering the morale of those they lead while shattering enemy lines with their staggering strength. Cypher’s pistols roar as Voldus’ psychic powers lash out – all the while, Guilliman strides like a reborn god, bellowing rallying cries and striking down countless foes.”

Roboute Guilliman
‘Primarch of the Ultramarines’
Clad in the Armour of Fate, adorned with Ultramarines and Imperial iconography and featuring a splendid ceremonial halo, he wields the Hand of Dominion and the Emperor’s Sword (yes, the Emperor’s Sword). Supplied with a sculpted 60mm round base, featuring a broken Imperial Eagle.
Roboute Guilliman – Sprue
Here’s pictures of both sides of the sprue for Roboute Guilliman…

Roboute Guilliman – Assembled
As long as you follow the instructions the model is relatively simple to assemble though there are a few points that might create a bit of confusion without them. Fortunately Games Workshop instructions in models such as these are very detailed so as long as you’re systematic I foresee no issues with putting this one together.
The Primarch comes with a choice of two heads. They slot in and out fairly easily so you could in theory paint both and switch between them should you so desire. I went with the helmeted version…

Here’s some close-ups of the detail…

The base is also very detailed indeed…

Instructions and Stats
As some-one who assembles models from a lot of different companies ranges I have to say that instructions with clear diagrams, numbers that match with parts on the sprue and actual views of the rear of the models were particularly enjoyable…
Thoughts and comments are (as usual) most welcome.

Black Templars, Heavy Hitters

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

I’ve been busy with terrain table commissions for the past few months, so I’ve been neglecting my blog. There hasn’t been any time to work on personal projects– My Morghasts and Hexwraiths haven’t been languishing on my work station.


All the rumors of a new 40K edition have gotten me thinking about my Black Templars. Maybe I’ll be able to pull them out of retirement. At any rate, since I don’t have anything new to show you, I decided to update the gallery with some of the models that are lacking detail photos.

Red Hunters Space Marines completed

Just a quick group shot of all the Space Marines I took to Adepticon. I will have much more content this weekend/next week, but I am going on a brief family vacation in the mean time. I forgot to put the dread in the group shot, so provided him below.

Unboxing – Triumvirate of the Primarch – Part One

Posted on March 28th, 2017 under , , , , , , , . Posted by

I’ve once again succumbed to that hobby dilemma of buying something i’ll probably never use because it’s really amazing looking and then ending up wanting to use it because it’s so amazing looking…the culprit in this case was the ‘Triumvirate of the Primarch’ box set…

“A strange fate binds Roboute Guilliman, Grand Master Voldus and the Fallen Angel Cypher together. They walk a path of providence; though whether it ends in damnation or deliverance, none can say. On the battlefield, this triumvirate of warriors is an unstoppable, inspiring force, bolstering the morale of those they lead while shattering enemy lines with their staggering strength. Cypher’s pistols roar as Voldus’ psychic powers lash out – all the while, Guilliman strides like a reborn god, bellowing rallying cries and striking down countless foes.”

I’m going to cover each of the three characters contained within in their own individual features but don’t worry…I’m only going to do pictures of the box in this first one…

The box is actually nicely presented with a nicely decorated internal section, an art print and a quite elaborate set of instructions that also includes character stats for the box contents…

Cypher
‘Lord of the Fallen’
Cypher – Lord of the Fallen – bedecked in archaic, makeshift gear appropriate to his renegade nature, his armour is retrofitted with parts from a variety of patterns – each part telling a story. He’s armed with a modified plasma pistol, and carries a particularly interesting sword on his back… Supplied with a Citadel 32mm Round base.
Cypher – Sprue
Here’s pictures of both sides of the sprue for Cypher.

Cypher – Assembled
Surprisingly few parts for such a detailed model and there were no tricky aspects to the assembly at all.

Here’s a few close-ups…
Instructions and Stats
As some-one who assembles models from a lot of different companies ranges I have to say that instructions with clear diagrams, numbers that match with parts on the sprue and actual views of the rear of the model were particularly enjoyable…

In part two we’ll be looking at Grand Master Voldus, Warden of the Librarius…
Thoughts and comments are (as usual) most welcome.

Dark Angels – Ravenwing aged METAL!

Posted on March 24th, 2017 under , , , , , , . Posted by

What a difference a day makes… actually the difference is marginal but pivotal. I have applied ‘liquid gold’ my Army Painter Strong Tone and all the doubts I had about the brass effect has been resolved. You can see how unrealistic and ‘blobby’ the gold paint had been on the left model. However, I washed half my Ravenwing with Strong Tone and you can see just how much the wash has evened things out and brought the sheen down to manageable levels. It’s fille dme with confidence and with all the METAL! brought to the same point I’m eager to move things on.

I did need to resupply all my washes just in case – £7.50 added to my growing hobby spends but I still things it’s the best value available

With the bronze/brass done is finally moving onto the black. This basecoat should be mind-numbingly unpleasant but having suffered through the previous METAL phase the simplicity of a basecoat is wildly appealing. I’m not daft though and after 30 minutes getting this guy’s basecoat completed I recalled that the process is much easier if I break it down further – do all the wheels, then the wheel fairings, the marine, then all the other bits and it seems less onerous. It’s still going to be around 13.5 hours on a process I’m not sure I even need to do. I have some recollection having done this last time with the Ravenwing bikers that after the highlights I shaded it with black [much easier than blending the highlights]. So I essentially covered up all the black anyway.

That said there’s nothing like having a reset and starting from a tidy point having covered up all the previous processes mistakes. So although it might be a waste of time and effort I’m just going to enjoy the monotony but very evident progress in basecoating the black.
