Well hello there! Another week has flown by, and (inspired by the progress of my fellow Aaronoriumites) I’ve actually managed to maintain hobby progress, putting the finishing touches to my Skirmish warband. This week has seen my Knight Venator conversion completed, and I’m now at the stage where all that’s needed is to put paint […]Read More Winging it…
The start of my grand painting adventure has been delayed this week on account of, in order, rain, snow, sub-zero temperatures, snow, rain, and more rain. Good old Ireland. I don’t have an indoor spray painting sanctuary, so I’m very much at the mercy of the elements. It did however give me a few days […]Read More Make like a tree…
Greetings, fellow humans! This week, I have mostly been painting the rest of my Shadespire crew. Unfortunately, I haven’t managed to get them finished (thanks to Nurgle afflicting me), but I’ve at least managed to get them all basecoated and washed – so they’re not far off. I’ve also been thinking about what I’ve got […]Read More The plan… to crush the Atreides.
I’ve had a weird week. For a few months I’ve had a very, very faint tremor in my jaw, only really noticeable when I was in bed, and it was such a fluttery, tiny thing that I mostly thought I was imagining it. There was also a faint quiver in my thumbs when I’d swipe […]Read More Tremors (the Bad Kind)
Hail, and well met! As mentioned in the previous instalment, my Stormcast army is themed around a Vanguard Chamber force, with as many Gryph- and winged creatures as possible. Based on our collective plan to start with a small Skirmish force with a 35 point limit, and based on my theme, I’ve opted for a […]Read More On a Wing and a Prayer
So a slight change of plan with our ‘doing our leaders first’ thing. Our Skirmish warbands are going to start out at 35 points, which gives us a few more options for building our starting forces, and lets Mark and Aaron fit in some of the characters and models they actually want in their […]Read More Branching Out
Greetings, fellow humans! This week, I have mostly been painting a test model. I started off with Bonekutta (the Ironskull Boy armed with an Orruk‑forged Big Choppa) because he looked the easiest to paint. I painted on all of the base colours, and then washed everything (except the fur) with Agrax Earthshade (aka ‘Talent in […]Read More The Waaagh! begins!
As you’re probably aware, we’re starting with Skirmish, with a beginning score of 35 Renown. I think it’s probably worth admitting that over the course of the last week, amendments were (perhaps foolishly) made in a bout of brazen dwarf-lust: Yes, yes, the table is still completely WIP. Shhhhhhh. I’ve been musing over the […]Read More Paint Schemes & Precious Lore
Spurred on by the progress of fellow Aaronoriumites (Please note: this term is now totally a thing) I have actually slapped plastic glue to miniature! Sweet, sweet hobby progress! Now I have to confess…When Age of Sigmar first popped up I was not a fan of the Stormcast Eternals. I’m usually a fan of all […]Read More Tooth, Beak and Claw
Look at that handsome devil. As Aaron announced, for the first chunk of this blog we’re going to be taking a stab at Age of Sigmar, and for my sins I’ve decided to focus on the various flavours of Aelves (gotta get that spelling right!) that are still lurking out in the Mortal Realms. Although if […]Read More Got wood?
