Rootimentary

I’ve spent this week preparing for our upcoming Skirmish weekend, getting some last bits of terrain put together and getting the scenarios sorted. And when I say getting the scenarios sorted, I mean copying the rules from the book verbatim and just changing the names and flavour text. So here’s how they’re looking, suitably vague […]

Were’s your head at?…

Hail, and well met… Progress once more! My Skin Wolves arrived from Forgeworld, and while they enjoy a warm, soapy bath to remove their release agent I’ve been working on their Alpha… While I love the aesthetic of the Skin Wolves, I fancied creating a pack leader who followed the classic werewolf archetype, while still […]

Arthos of Carnhold, Beast Hunter

~ The tracks in the dark mud were fresh and deep, but a child could have followed the trail the orruk had left, such was the havoc the monster had caused in its rambling course through the forest. Shorn branches and trampled undergrowth lay scattered in its wake. It was obviously lost, for it had […]

Gate expectations…

Hail, and well met.   First things first. Much like Aaron, I Didn’t Die! Between an avalanche of work and real life commitments, I’ve had a bit of a paucity of time to spend on humble hobby pursuits. To make matters worse, what time I have had was spent in the most labour intensive way.   Allow […]

Charge of the smite brigade…

This week I had the pleasure of seeing Ross’s latest offering – the Kurnoth Hunters – in the flesh (wood? plastic?). I also got to meet Aaron’s Ironjaws. Add to this Colin’s prodigious output of greenskins, and I suddenly realise: I’m pretty heavily outgunned. My single miniature, and her accompanying feathered bodyguards, are fine for […]

I Didn’t Die!

Look at how low-res Duncan is, right there. Anyway, I got my blood test results back, and then I had to do more tests, and then I got those results back, too. And the endgame from all those results? The thrilling conclusion? Basically nothing. Or, as my doctor phrased it, “not much of anything.”  I […]

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 […]

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 […]
