In a previous post I had finished painting everything that I had for my WWII collection, but have since treated myself to a few models, including a tank for my allies. Having recently read James Holland’s Brothers in Arms, about the Nottingham Sherwood rangers tank regiment I was inspired to buy a Sherman Firefly forContinue reading “Green Hell!”

When the Imperial hive of Pinguisburg Profundis was destroyed at the whim of the Inquisition for the crime of harbouring a genestealer cult it took Vertraag, an ogryn slave working in the underhive waste disposal sector primus, three months to dig his way to the surface. From there he walked, bewildered and aimless through theContinue reading “Bone ‘ead”
Last Orktober I wrote a post about the completion of my long running Blood Axe kommando clan. Imagine my surprise when I stumbled across two sneaky gitz who had somehow infiltrated my painting pile from that nefarious eBay!.. In all seriousness, I find that whenever I think I’ve finished one of my collections, my eyeContinue reading “Sneaky Gitz”
For a number of years now I have had a WWII skirmish project simmering away on the back-burner. In a previous post I showed off my US airborne infantry but I have documented very little on my blog since then. My collection is somewhat unusual, including as it does, a captured Char B tank, aContinue reading “Schwerpunkt!”
As the interlopers sneak through the undercity, they alight upon an ancient statue. Emerald onyx shimmers in the ever dancing flames of the braziers that flank the effigy. The icon of the immortal God-king is magnificent and noble in aspect and at its base, votive candles, minor Shrines and macabre offerings lie scattered in theContinue reading “Immortal Idols”
Continuing from my last post about my primaris marine project (Unnumbered Sons) here is my latest addition… I have a five-man killteam of primaris assault troops and a librarian undercoated and ready to paint, but that’s a project for next year.
The Great Awakening
A lattice of arcane symbols blaze into life, bathing the smooth blackstone surfaces in a lambent emerald glow. The hum of archaic machinery resonates through the halls before a rhythmical thumping begins. Metal feet, in their thousands, clanging on stone as the phalanxes of soulless automata march in perfect lock-step. Watching on from the shadowsContinue reading “The Great Awakening”
‘appy Orktober Boyz!
It’s the most wonderful time of the WAAAARGHH!!! This Orktober marks the close of my own greenskin project as I have painted the last model for my Blood axe mob. The sneaky gitz of Urrgok Skulldagga’s Kommandos are ardent followers of the mighty God Mork. His ‘brutal kunnin’ is legendary throughout the galaxy and hisContinue reading “‘appy Orktober Boyz!”
Welcome to the jungle!
I have spoken in a previous post (read here) about the system I devised to help me to get more of my wargame projects to completion and having followed it for a year now, it has more than proven its worth. One such project, which started nearly 15 years ago, is my classic metal CatachanContinue reading “Welcome to the jungle!”
With the new Warhammer 40k – Imperium magazine out, I am using it as an excuse to expand my budding Adeptus Mechanicus collection and to start two new ones, both the Necrons and Primaris space marines. I racked my brains to decide which chapter to paint my new ‘uber’ marines before I realised that IContinue reading “Unnumbered Sons”
