2018 Hobby Roundup

(There’s a lot of rambling text here – over 2,300 words in fact, what is my life? – so I’ll not be offended if you just scroll through the pictures!) The 1st of January marks the 1st birthday of the blog, so I wanted to join the tradition of plenty of other bloggers out there […]

When Grots attack.

Greetings, fellow humans! This week, I have mostly been painting the biggest (and best) Shadespire warband. Well, I actually rushed them last week so that they’d be fully painted ready for some gaming at the Aaronorium, but I saved posting them till this week. They’re still greenskins, so they still count for Orktober, right? I […]

Thorns of the Briar Queen

Shadespire ticked all the right boxes for me when it came out – quick to set up and play, rock solid rules, and most importantly for a glacially slow painter like myself, an ultra-low model count – so I wasted no time getting my pre-order in for Nightvault.  And with a Nighthaunt warband in the […]

Da Boyz are back in town!

Hakka, Basha, and Gurzag Ironskull have joined Bonekutta in my painted ranks now – putting my Aos/Ironjawz army on the scoreboard with a grand total of 1 unit/4 models/80 points. I’ll count them as regular old Ardboys when we get round to […]

The plan… to crush the Atreides.

Greetings, fellow humans! This week, I have mostly been painting the rest of my Shadespire crew. Unfortunately, I haven’t managed to get them finished (thanks to Nurgle afflicting me), but I’ve at least managed to get them all basecoated and washed – so they’re not far off. I’ve also been thinking about what I’ve got […]

The Waaagh! begins!

Greetings, fellow humans! This week, I have mostly been painting a test model. I started off with Bonekutta (the Ironskull Boy armed with an Orruk‑forged Big Choppa) because he looked the easiest to paint. I painted on all of the base colours, and then washed everything (except the fur) with Agrax Earthshade (aka ‘Talent in […]

Is This Thing On?

Greetings! I am the one they call Ross, for that is my name. I’ll start by saying that I’m not the most loquacious chap, so I’ll keep this short and sweet, and I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves. Show, don’t tell, right? Once upon a time, 11-year-old me nagged his mum to buy him […]
