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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
