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 […]

None shall pass!

Hail, and well met. This week I’ve been utterly blown away by the progress of my fellow Aaronoriumites! Although I’ve managed to get my skirmish warband completed I didn’t want to rest on my laurels, and Ross’s Dark AoS/Inq 28 dabbling really put me in the mood to work on something to enhance the narrative […]

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 […]

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 […]

On a Wing and a Prayer

Hail, and well met! As mentioned in the previous instalment, my Stormcast army is themed around a Vanguard Chamber force, with as many Gryph- and winged creatures as possible. Based on our collective plan to start with a small Skirmish force with a 35 point limit, and based on my theme, I’ve opted for a […]

Tooth, Beak and Claw

Spurred on by the progress of fellow Aaronoriumites (Please note: this term is now totally a thing) I have actually slapped plastic glue to miniature! Sweet, sweet hobby progress! Now I have to confess…When Age of Sigmar first popped up I was not a fan of the Stormcast Eternals. I’m usually a fan of all […]
