Posted on July 11th, 2018 under , , , , . Posted by

Quick post today to show I’m still working on these Liberators. I think the hardest part of these is done now. The yellow is time consuming but totally worth it. I’m hoping an hour or so a night for the next week will see these finished. How often and …

WIP: Eldar/Aeldari Female Autarch of Iybraesil (Conversion)

Posted on July 5th, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

This is a conversion I had in mind for quite a while now. When the plastic Autarch model was released, it almost immediately occurred to me that the arms and helmet from the classic Autarch sculpts would make for a great alternate pose. I also wan…

So near yet so far.This stand of peltasts stalled the other afternoon due to a rare occurrence – it was too hot to paint comfortably. Yes, it’s hard to believe but it would seem that there is a summer in Scotland after all.Not to be put off by some sun…

WIP: Shadespire Ironskull’s Boyz

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

Shock horror, I’ve been gaming. I haven’t gamed in years. Shadespire is fast to play and really enjoyable. I’ve been playing it in my lunch breaks at work with a colleague. It’s small enough and compact enough to carry to work in my backpack. I’ve won …

Posted on June 28th, 2018 under , , , , , , , . Posted by

Discordian here. So I really wanted to start a new army that I could build from the ground up. And I really wanted to do something creative and fun. And somehow that meant Mandrakes. (Because whats more fun than heavy metal night terrors made of shadow…

Once again a stalled project restarts, this time to begin rebasing from 80mm fronts to 40mm fronts. The reasoning behind this is fewer and fewer people in the local area are playing Impetus or Basic Impetus. On the upside more people are playing A…

June has been a slow month for hobby time here with little progress happening on several on going projects.The command and casualty stands for Confederates in the ACW move on steadily.Even slower is the progress being made on the Arthurian warband and …

Building a Marine Amphibian Tank Company

Posted on June 19th, 2018 under , , , , , . Posted by

I’ve made no secret of my excitement about the Marine Amphibian Tank Company. And with Andrew making so much progress on his Ka-Mi tanks I thought I’d better get my act together and push ahead with my painting.Luckily the LVTs are a breeze to assemble….

WIP: Stormcast Eternals Liberators #1

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

I’m so stoked for the new Age of Sigmar Soul Wars that’s on the way that I thought I’d quickly sneak in a few more Stormcast Eternal Liberators for my Primal Kings army. These are just the push fit ones but it was so nice being able to assemble some mo…

I’m making some steady progress on my Primal Kings Stormcast Eternals Lord-Celestant. The Dracoth is 99% complete, I just need to do a couple of touch ups and a few edge highlights for the Dracoth. The Lord Celestant is coming along really nicely. You …

WIP: Stormcast Eternals Lord-Celestant on Dracoth

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

I’ve been squeezing in around 45 minutes a night to paint this model. I’m really enjoying it, I just wish I had more time to work on it. I’m happy with the muted tones of the Dracoth. I didn’t want it to be bright and colourful. I wanted a dinosaur and…

WIP: Death Guard Apostles of Contagion #4

Posted on May 25th, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

… and another batch of WIP minis! I’m aware that these look pretty finished, but there’s so much detail on the guys which still requires some more attention. You know what GW models are like. But I’m rather positive that the guys will be finished soo…
