Whetting my beak…

Hail, and well met. I’m going to open with a confession. I nearly threw my Knight Venatrix out the window this week. I went back and forth trying to achieve a smooth blend on the wings, which I could envisage with ease, but just kept ‘overworking’. I often experience this in a miniature paint job […]

“Hey man, I just work here.”

So here’s my work in progress for the Nestorian Infestation invitational. I decided to take part in this little sidequest for a couple of reasons. Firstly, to scratch my 40k itch and have a play with some new kits that I picked up. I grabbed a box of Genestealer Cultists a few weeks back with […]

…And drybrush for all.

Greetings, fellow humans! This week, I have mostly been painting a Brute…. I started by painting all of the base colours, and then washing everything and drybrushing the skin and metal (as per usual). After that though, I really didn’t feel like highlighting everything else as I’d done so far. It was quite time consuming, […]

Call the Copse…

…cause I killed it this week! Sorry. Had to work really hard to fit that pun in. I set myself a challenge this week. Rather than dawdle along painting a couple of these dryads a week, I thought I’d try and get the whole lot done in just one. And I did! It wasn’t easy, and I […]

The bird is the word…

Hail, and well met! One of the things I love about this hobby is the sheer scope. Be it the grim darkness of the far future, or the many Realms of the Age of Sigmar, the setting has such immensity that it’s easy to get a little overwhelmed. I’ve always loved the minutiae; the flavour-text and […]

Touch Wood

OK, this post will be a little rambling (but hopefully not too long) as I’ve a few things to chat about, so bear with me! First off, this week’s hobby, because that’s why we’re all here, right? I spent this week building dryads. I was going to do the Tree Revenants but there’s still a […]

Total Brutal!

Greetings, fellow humans! This week, I have mostly been building Death Guard and Brutes. I know the Death Guard aren’t Ironjawz, but they’re going to be mostly green when they’re painted. That counts, right? I managed to build two Myphitic Blight-Haulers (which I enjoyed) and five Blightlord Terminators (which I didn’t). I used them in […]

Blood for the Blood Test

My doctor and I are coming at the tremors issue from significantly different angles. He wants to be reassuring, he sees it as no big deal, and repeats that it’s almost definitely nothing serious. This is great! But it’s in this moment I realise I’ve not been worrying about Something Serious. I’ve been worrying about […]

Birds of a feather…

Hail, and well met! Did you ever bite off more than you can chew? This week has made for slow progress on the painting front, but some progress nonetheless. The Venatrix herself has had some base colours applied, but I am avoiding the temptation to rush her, as I’m planning to push myself with some […]
