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, […]

Kill Team Spectre

I’m cheating a little bit this week as these guys are some old models that I’ve just dug out of the display case in preparation for the new Kill Team. I have done some hobby this week though – fear not and read on! I actually converted these guys up for a Kill Team weekend we did […]

The Sepulchral Guard

I was away on holiday this week so I didn’t get any hobby done, but I realised I hadn’t shared these guys yet, so here they are! The next three loyal minions of Nagash guarding Shadespire from the thieving hands of Order, Destruction and Chaos. I shared the Warden a while back, and I was […]

Making Cork Bark Cliffs and Hills

After finishing off my Chainrasps last week I wanted to do something big and messy to detox from all the fiddly detail painting, and with the weather being so gorgeous it was a great opportunity to get outside and use some grown-up sized tools and paintbrushes. After our skirmish weekend we’d discussed that we’d didn’t […]

Nighthaunt Painting Guide

My first Chainrasp got quite a bit of attention on Twitter, with a few people asking how I did various bits of it, so I thought I’d throw together a full tutorial, as much for my own reference as anything. Let’s jump right in! The Model Step 1 – Basecoat I used Chaos Black Spray and touched it up […]

Dead Reckoning

I want to do a Death army, you guys. I thought I’d be good with just the Shadespire warband, but GW keep previewing all the new Death stuff. It’s so good. I asked the other guys to talk me out of it, but they only enabled me. They’re bad friends. Did you see the guy […]

Rootimentary

I’ve spent this week preparing for our upcoming Skirmish weekend, getting some last bits of terrain put together and getting the scenarios sorted. And when I say getting the scenarios sorted, I mean copying the rules from the book verbatim and just changing the names and flavour text. So here’s how they’re looking, suitably vague […]
