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 […]

The bird is the word…

Hail, and well met! One of the things I love about this hobby is the sheer scope. Be it the grim darkness of the far future, or the many Realms of the Age of Sigmar, the setting has such immensity that it’s easy to get a little overwhelmed. I’ve always loved the minutiae; the flavour-text and […]

~ Amadriel closed her hand around the twisted trunk of the scythe. It had grown in the greenwood for half an age now, replanted after the last war against the ruinous ones. Lichen stained its bark and moss had sprouted in dark patches amongst the knots and gnarls, but she could still feel the polished […]

10 points to Gryphon-door…

Hail, and well met. This week has been challenging, but rewarding. Not even a bout of influenza could stop me putting paint to miniature, and although progress was slow, it has been nice to sit and get back into painting again.   The main effort this week has been getting base colours on, and I’ve […]

So Far, So Wood

This week has been mostly trying to get my Branchwych painted, although some other dormant hobby projects have started ominously rumbling in the back of my head, distracting my focus and eroding the bedrock of my Sylvaneth master plan. After last week’s treasure hunt for basing and texturing materials I got stuck straight into trying […]
