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 […]

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.

Tooth, Beak and Claw

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 […]

And so, it begins.

  Come closer, friend. Don’t be afraid! Sit a while, and let me tell you of a simpler time; a time when the Internet was young, and Space Marines went to war in vehicles made from shampoo bottles. Picture, if you will, a wide eyed young lad of 12 or 13, raised on tales of […]
