Slaves to Darkness Painting Guide

Hey folks, As promised, here’s a guide for how I paint my Slaves to Darkness. Because I’m basing my army for a desert board, I wanted to avoid the cool blue highlights that the studio uses, and employ a more neutral scheme for the armour. The detail colours will introduce some warmth into the palette, […]

Hello. Hallo. Hej.

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 […]

Chaos Warriors

Hey folks, Yes, you are correct, that’s technically only half a unit of Chaos Warriors. We had our Path to Glory get together a couple of weekends ago and I rushed through the first week of March to get these five done so that I’d have a full starting warband. I got them to about 90%, and […]

Chaos Knights

I got these guys finished on Sunday, so it’s technically still within the “3rd week of the month” deadline I’ve set myself. Still, I knew it would be close, and it was a bit of a rush to the finish line. I’d suspected before starting these guys that it might be a bit of a […]

Qargath, the Exile

Hey folks, Here’s my Chaos Lord, delivered just about on schedule. I had fun painting this chap, although it did take frigging ages. Shouldn’t be surprised about that. Since my last post I’ve managed to squeeze in an hour or two most evenings, with some longer sessions over the weekends. I’d say there’s probably about 40 […]

New Army, Who Dis?

Intro Hey, folks. It’s been a while. I spent all of July painting terrain, and that SUCKED, so I haven’t painted anything since. But we had a Meeting Engagement weekend back at the start of December, and that got us all back in the mood for hobbying, so here we are in 2020. Over that […]

AoS Skirmish Tables

Over the weekend we had some friends over for a day of Skirmish gaming. The latest AoS Skirmish rules recommend a board size of 30″x40″, so I picked up a sheet of 12mm MDF and cut it to size and then textured and painted them up to represent three different biomes. We’ve been thinking about […]

Orlocks Part 5: Reinforcements

Just a quick post this week to show off the latest addition to my Orlocks. I’m sure most of you will recognise the inspiration! Despite the shameless homage to the galaxy’s most legendary outlaw, I used the same colour recipes as the rest of my Orlocks, so he ties in pretty seamlessly with the rest […]

T’au Army Showcase

OK, so “army” might be a bit generous. Collection, I guess. I haven’t posted in quite a while because I haven’t painted anything in quite a while, and to be honest I don’t even feel that bad about it. But I’ve been promising I’d do a post about these T’au since the blog started, so […]

Knight of Shrouds

Apologies for the lack of content for a while. I got this fella finished up a few weeks ago, but I only got a chance to photograph him last night. He got his first outing in battle against Colin’s Gitz where he was ignominiously ganked by a horde of goblin archers, so he currently sits on […]
