Qargath, the Exile

Hey folks, Here’s my Chaos Lord, delivered just about on schedule. I had fun painting this chap, although it did take frigging ages. Shouldn’t be surprised about that. Since my last post I’ve managed to squeeze in an hour or two most evenings, with some longer sessions over the weekends. I’d say there’s probably about 40 […]

T’au Army Showcase

OK, so “army” might be a bit generous. Collection, I guess. I haven’t posted in quite a while because I haven’t painted anything in quite a while, and to be honest I don’t even feel that bad about it. But I’ve been promising I’d do a post about these T’au since the blog started, so […]

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, […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Whetting my beak…

Hail, and well met. I’m going to open with a confession. I nearly threw my Knight Venatrix out the window this week. I went back and forth trying to achieve a smooth blend on the wings, which I could envisage with ease, but just kept ‘overworking’. I often experience this in a miniature paint job […]
