Terrain is everything – New display board – ‘bloody marbleous’

Posted on May 16th, 2018 under , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

I really didn’t expect to progress so quickly with my new display board but I had a puncture last week which meant I had to take a day off to get it replaced. This afforded me some time during the day to work on the board. In the hobby for me, some job…

Terrain is everything – New display board

I started this display board the other week. This patterned sheet of hardboard was left at my Aunt’s house when we cleared it after she passed away. It has a glossy finish to look like tiles and I hoped the slightly embossed pattern might still be visi…

Terrain is everything – Sanctum Imperialis Big Build TO DONE!

Posted on May 9th, 2018 under , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

After my last Confession I’d assessed what was on my palette and distilled it down to the ‘Big 3’ which begs the question why I was suddenly building the Sanctum Imperialis from my Imperial Knight Renegade set… In fact, on the sprue this took up far …

Posted on April 30th, 2018 under , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

Almost two years ago now, there was another one of my ‘honestly not’ diversionary tasks while the Dark Angel drop pods failed to motivate me. But what a task to get distracted inspired by – the Tyranid VSG. Although don’t get too excited I haven’t touc…

To celebrate my 250th Tyranid post I thought I’d finally publish this ‘draft’ post officially to the world. I originally sculpted and filmed this almost 2 years ago but I know what it looks like and just couldn’t bring myself to share it publicly. I’ve…

Terrain is everything – movement tray – TO DONE!

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

I took a shedload of pictures of these movement trays, I can’t think for why? First off it grates in my personal OCD that I didn’t fill in the gaps in the movement tray layers.And then I recall that they are fundamentally useless in game and therefore …

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

My Crushing Claw Tervigon has been a staple of my army since 2011 but when I was painting it as a sub-assembly I asked myself even then should I magnetise it? But I was still quite green with my hobby skills and I was much more wary about screwing up t…

Oh man! I mean look at it. It’s far from a perfect picture, In fact the positioning of the model make it actually very difficult to work out what’s going on but the colours are fabulous.Composition wise I think this is much better but sadly less dynami…

‘nids part 240 – Trygon – TO DONE!

Posted on January 26th, 2018 under , , , , , , . Posted by

The Trygon is complete, although I hadn’t glued his head on at this stage [yeah I don’t know why either?].Annoyingly when I did glue it in place I still got the torso out of whack, which meant the head still isn’t straight and more importantly couldn’t…

Moar pics of the Rippers, once again Camera 360 making these far more vibrant so they look good enough to eat. Sometimes I wonder if these additional pics add anything but in this case I think they do, and wait until you see the Trygon pics, these one …

Posted on January 24th, 2018 under , , , , , , . Posted by

I’ve had four bases of Rippers for so long now that the 4th base, which was done at a later date than the the original 3 still looks like they were painted at the same time.But I collected a fair few Rippers from bits and other assorted ebay purchases …

Toxin Sac and Plasma effect next. I had originally planned to do a video of the green being applied but foolishly shook my Dark Green Valejo paint just before I began, which given how the process specifically requires the paint to remain un-mixed re…

Terrain is everything – movement tray

Posted on January 18th, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

Suddenly realised I hadn’t shared any progress on these and it would appear I’ve only taken this one picture so far, and they’re almost complete. As much as I tried to convince myself these will speed movement up my last game suggests I might have been…
