Nighthaunt Heroes

I mean… they might once have been heroes. They don’t seem like the heroic types any more. I still can’t decide if I like the floating spirits, so I’ve left them detached for the moment. I had great fun painting this guy though. I was able to take the lessons learned from the Thorns of […]

2019 Hobby Goals

So what do I actually want to paint and play in 2019? This year my painting will hopefully be more focussed on (and driven by) what I’m actually going to be playing, because I enjoy gaming a lot more than I do painting. I’m hoping that’ll mean more time gaming and less time painting stuff […]

2018 Hobby Roundup

(There’s a lot of rambling text here – over 2,300 words in fact, what is my life? – so I’ll not be offended if you just scroll through the pictures!) The 1st of January marks the 1st birthday of the blog, so I wanted to join the tradition of plenty of other bloggers out there […]

AoS28 Steelheart’s Champions

My lone hobby project for December was to finally finish Steelheart’s Champions, which I’ve been working on for about 6 months. And when I say working on, I mean leaving them on a shelf for months at a time, then doing a couple of hours work, and then shamefully rushing to a finish in the […]

The Scenic Route

For the last month or so – in fact since whenever it was that I painted those Thorns of the Briar Queen – I’ve been painting scenery. So much scenery. We had a bunch of friends over for a Kill Team weekend a couple of weeks back, so I wanted to get enough Zone Mortalis […]

Thorns of the Briar Queen

Shadespire ticked all the right boxes for me when it came out – quick to set up and play, rock solid rules, and most importantly for a glacially slow painter like myself, an ultra-low model count – so I wasted no time getting my pre-order in for Nightvault.  And with a Nighthaunt warband in the […]

Danger Zone

This week I took a couple of hours to knock up a tester tile for our Zone Mortalis board. I wanted something that was quick and dirty and repeatable, cause I’ve got 16 of the buggers to get through. I took some queues from the ZM tiles in the Necro box for the floor, and […]

Orlocks Part 4: Big Red

So it’s been a while since I posted. A couple of real life things have derailed my hobby in the past few weeks, and added to that I work in a school, so when the summer comes around any sense of routine goes right out the window for me. School started back this week though, […]

Sepulchral Guard: Part 2

FINALLY got these guys finished! Like, two months after I started them. My painting progress has went completely out the window since the summer holidays started. I couldn’t drum up the enthusiasm to start these last three guys for a long time, and when I finally did, my flipping paintbrush split, so I had to […]

Kill Team Spectre

I’m cheating a little bit this week as these guys are some old models that I’ve just dug out of the display case in preparation for the new Kill Team. I have done some hobby this week though – fear not and read on! I actually converted these guys up for a Kill Team weekend we did […]
