Grimghast Reapers

Polishing off these fellas sees the last of the Soul Wars infantry complete. I’ve just got the mounted Knight of Shrouds left to do now, and either Ravenak’s Gnashing Jaws or the Aethervoid Pendulum, and that’s me at 1000pts. These guys were pretty fun to paint. I sometimes think I have a phobia of batch […]

Glaivewraith Stalkers

I painted up these guys this week. Umm…I don’t have a whole lot to say about them! They’re the five Stalkers from the Soul Wars box, painted up to what I’d call tabletop standard for me. It was a pretty quick paint job over a few evenings. I skipped some highlights, and the glaives could […]

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 […]

2018 Hobby Roundup

(There’s a lot of rambling text here – over 2,300 words in fact, what is my life? – so I’ll not be offended if you just scroll through the pictures!) The 1st of January marks the 1st birthday of the blog, so I wanted to join the tradition of plenty of other bloggers out there […]

AoS28 Steelheart’s Champions

My lone hobby project for December was to finally finish Steelheart’s Champions, which I’ve been working on for about 6 months. And when I say working on, I mean leaving them on a shelf for months at a time, then doing a couple of hours work, and then shamefully rushing to a finish in the […]

Thorns of the Briar Queen

Shadespire ticked all the right boxes for me when it came out – quick to set up and play, rock solid rules, and most importantly for a glacially slow painter like myself, an ultra-low model count – so I wasted no time getting my pre-order in for Nightvault.  And with a Nighthaunt warband in the […]

On the case!

Greetings, fellow humans! This week, I have mostly been tidying up my cases. It’s not as interesting as painting new models, but it’s a necessary evil. I’m a very organised guy (planning and resourcing is my day job), so it’s second nature to me to apply similar levels of organisation to my hobby. I won’t […]

Danger Zone

This week I took a couple of hours to knock up a tester tile for our Zone Mortalis board. I wanted something that was quick and dirty and repeatable, cause I’ve got 16 of the buggers to get through. I took some queues from the ZM tiles in the Necro box for the floor, and […]

Orlocks Part 4: Big Red

So it’s been a while since I posted. A couple of real life things have derailed my hobby in the past few weeks, and added to that I work in a school, so when the summer comes around any sense of routine goes right out the window for me. School started back this week though, […]
