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 […]

Orlocks Part 2: Painting Guide

Another three Orlocks polished off this week! I had to move a bit quicker with these guys than the first three so I’m not quite as happy as last week’s bunch, and they seem to have come out a bit darker overall as well. Maybe it’s because I didn’t use as much white on these […]

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 […]

The House of Orlock Rises

The first three of my precious Orlocks stand ready to go to war! I feel like I really turned a corner with my painting. If you’ve been following along, I was complaining last week about my inability to paint metal. Well it seems like I figured out the secret, cause it turned out way better […]

Arthos of Carnhold, Beast Hunter

~ The tracks in the dark mud were fresh and deep, but a child could have followed the trail the orruk had left, such was the havoc the monster had caused in its rambling course through the forest. Shorn branches and trampled undergrowth lay scattered in its wake. It was obviously lost, for it had […]

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 […]

Shiver Me Timbers

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 […]

Vine and Dandy

Afternoon, folks! I diverged a bit from my intentions at the end of last week, surprise surprise. I got the Kurnoth Hunters finished off as promised, but instead of getting my 40k civvies done (which time is really running short on), I got distracted messing about with scenery instead. I spent the weekend trying to […]

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 […]

With Fronds Like These…

I didn’t have as much hobby time this week as I usually do, so while I was hoping to get my Kurnoth Hunters polished off, I’ll have to settle for 80% done. That last 20% is all the detail work though, so it’s still a good few hours work. I’ll hopefully get them finished over […]
