Were’s your head at?…

Hail, and well met… Progress once more! My Skin Wolves arrived from Forgeworld, and while they enjoy a warm, soapy bath to remove their release agent I’ve been working on their Alpha… While I love the aesthetic of the Skin Wolves, I fancied creating a pack leader who followed the classic werewolf archetype, while still […]

Cry ‘Havoc!’…

Hail, and well met! I’ve decided not to bore you with yet another WIP post about my Realmgate, guardians, Palladors or Aquilor. Take my word for it, they’re getting there. But we have a deadline, a planned meet-up to pit our collected Blog-spawned forces against one another in the Aaronorium. That looming date has given me […]

Gate expectations…

Hail, and well met.   First things first. Much like Aaron, I Didn’t Die! Between an avalanche of work and real life commitments, I’ve had a bit of a paucity of time to spend on humble hobby pursuits. To make matters worse, what time I have had was spent in the most labour intensive way.   Allow […]

Charge of the smite brigade…

This week I had the pleasure of seeing Ross’s latest offering – the Kurnoth Hunters – in the flesh (wood? plastic?). I also got to meet Aaron’s Ironjaws. Add to this Colin’s prodigious output of greenskins, and I suddenly realise: I’m pretty heavily outgunned. My single miniature, and her accompanying feathered bodyguards, are fine for […]

None shall pass!

Hail, and well met. This week I’ve been utterly blown away by the progress of my fellow Aaronoriumites! Although I’ve managed to get my skirmish warband completed I didn’t want to rest on my laurels, and Ross’s Dark AoS/Inq 28 dabbling really put me in the mood to work on something to enhance the narrative […]

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 […]

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. 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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
