Just a brief update today. Just one little teeny-tiny question. Ever mess around with paint schemes & finish a mini in colours you don’t exactly love, but it was so much effort that you go “Well, this is my colour scheme now.” ? Asking for a friend. Called Aaron. Who’s looking at his finished Barak-Zon […]Read More City of the Sun
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, […]Read More Slaves to Darkness Painting Guide
Greetings, fellow humans! This week, I have mostly been typing up some battle reports from our recent Path to Glory weekend. Ross and I managed to get a series of games in against each other, which I’ll summarise below. The Silent Ruin Chaos Sorcerer Lord 10 Chaos Warriors (including musician) 5 Chaos Warriors (including champion) […]Read More Path to Glory!
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 […]Read More Hello. Hallo. Hej.
Way back in the mists of time, I was lucky enough to be part of The Tale of Four Wordlords, where Phil Kelly, Gav Thorpe, Guy Haley and myself raised AoS armies together, month by month. The articles were up on Warhammer Community, and being part of a Tale of Four Gamers/Warlords project like those […]Read More The Vylathai Enclave – My Idoneth Deepkin
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 […]Read More Chaos Warriors
For a long time, a few of my pals outside the Aaronorium group have been musing over getting into Kill Team by way of a narrative campaign. It’s still a long way from happening (if ever…) but so far it’s been lurking in the back of my head by the working title This Horde of […]Read More “This Horde of Raiders and Thieves”: A Black Legion Civil War
Greetings, fellow humans! This month, I have mostly been painting Chaos Warriors (or Chaswassers, for short). Being mostly silver meant that they were relatively quick and easy to paint, which is just as well as I’ve got another twenty-five to do at some point! I worked out an assembly plan that would give me a […]Read More I’d have called ’em Chaswassers.
So, um, hi. I’ve been hobbying again. I was ill for pretty much all of 2019; not interestingly ill, just malfunctioningly ill. I’ll spare you the tedious deets of exactly how my gears started slipping and my cogs went all blunty-toothed, but suffice to say it’s been a relief to get some paint onto plastic […]Read More Ratfinks, Suicide Tanks, and Cannibal Girls
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 […]Read More Chaos Knights
