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 […]

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 […]

Out on a Limb

~ Amadriel closed her hand around the twisted trunk of the scythe. It had grown in the greenwood for half an age now, replanted after the last war against the ruinous ones. Lichen stained its bark and moss had sprouted in dark patches amongst the knots and gnarls, but she could still feel the polished […]

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 […]

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 […]

Got wood?

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 […]

Is this thing on?

Greetings! I am the one they call Ross, for that is my name. I’ll start by saying that I’m not the most loquacious chap, so I’ll keep this short and sweet, and I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves. Show, don’t tell, right? Once upon a time, 11-year-old me nagged his mum to buy him […]
