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 […]

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 […]
