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 […]

Call the Copse…

…cause I killed it this week! Sorry. Had to work really hard to fit that pun in. I set myself a challenge this week. Rather than dawdle along painting a couple of these dryads a week, I thought I’d try and get the whole lot done in just one. And I did! It wasn’t easy, and I […]
