Hello. Hallo. Hej. Hallo (the German version, the first one was in Dutch, big difference). As a regular visitor to the Aaronorium I’ve made a few guest appearances in other people’s posts (or have been name dropped). And recently the others have asked me to also start writing on the blog here. And for my […]Read More Hello. Hallo. Hej.
GW asked us if they could send us out an early copy of the new AoS big box to have an play with as long as we said some words about it. So of course we said ‘yes!’ before they’d even finished asking the question. My one word review? Excellent! Obviously. But I suspect you’re […]Read More Review: Age of Sigmar Soul Wars
I know, I know, there are a million of these posts, I’m sure! But a friend asked me the other day what I use for taking my photos, so I thought I’d put together a little how-to for my particular techniques, and hey, we might learn something new! So here’s the actual equipment I use, […]Read More Photographing Miniatures
I’ll start by saying that this post is quite different from my usual painting log, so apologies for anyone hoping to see the last of my Orlocks, but I took a break from painting this week and I still wanted to share something, so I hope it’s at least interesting, and we’ll be back to […]Read More RPG-style actions for Necromunda and Inq28
Not much in the way of content from me this week folks, on account of me being a bit broken, like the earthbound eggy edgelord above*. I was planning on getting some work started on my Beast Hunter, but Nurgle’s gifts abounded and a dream-team triple-threat match-up of acute food poisoning, flu, and an annoying […]Read More Easter Break
GET IT!? BECAUSE IT’S STILL A WOOD PUN, BUT IT’S ALSO A BOAT PUN! Well, it’s been a pretty weak week on the hobby front for me, but what about those Deepkin, eh? But the hobby first. Calendron, the god of appointments, turned his baleful eye on upon me this week and I’ve been out every […]Read More Shiver Me Timbers
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 […]Read More None shall pass!
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 […]Read More Whetting my beak…
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 […]Read More The bird is the word…
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 […]Read More Birds of a feather…
