10 points to Gryphon-door…

Hail, and well met. This week has been challenging, but rewarding. Not even a bout of influenza could stop me putting paint to miniature, and although progress was slow, it has been nice to sit and get back into painting again.   The main effort this week has been getting base colours on, and I’ve […]

So far, so wood.

This week has been mostly trying to get my Branchwych painted, although some other dormant hobby projects have started ominously rumbling in the back of my head, distracting my focus and eroding the bedrock of my Sylvaneth master plan. After last week’s treasure hunt for basing and texturing materials I got stuck straight into trying […]

Da Boyz are back in town!

Greetings, fellow humans! This week, I have mostly been finishing off Ironskull’s Boyz. Hakka, Basha, and Gurzag Ironskull have joined Bonekutta in my painted ranks now – putting my Aos/Ironjawz army on the scoreboard with a grand total of 1 unit/4 models/80 points. I’ll count them as regular old Ardboys when we get round to […]

Winging it…

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 […]

Make like a tree…

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 […]

The plan… to crush the Atreides.

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 […]

Tremors (the Bad Kind)

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 […]

On a Wing and a Prayer

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 […]

Branching Out

  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 […]

The Waaagh! begins!

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 […]
