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”

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.
‘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!”
Years ago, when I still played the unwieldy behemoth that was Warhammer 40k, I had a rather large Imperial Guard army and as part of it I owned no less than six Chimera APCs. They have always had a place in my heart, those sturdy little tanks, many is the time my opponents scoffed atContinue reading “Chimera”
Decemb-uary Painting Challenge Final Reveal
Having read Azazel’s latest Decemb-uary post, which is chock-full of fantastic paint jobs and brilliant conversions by fellow participants, I was inspired to get myself into gear and finish off the final touches to my dreadnought. Without further ado I present venerable-brother Dracorus… I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Azazel for coming upContinue reading “Decemb-uary Painting Challenge Final Reveal”
My Decemd-uary painting challenge (inspired by Azazel) has not progressed past my last post, but it has at least helped me to get back into painting mode. With all the fun I’ve had with my Memoir 40k project, I decided to add a few troops from my Epic bits box. I picked up a singleContinue reading “Epic Diversions”
Decemb-uary painting update #2
I have been slowly plugging away at my Iron Eagles dreadnought and have finally started to hit my stride. I look forward to sitting down at the painting desk in the evenings and cracking out the paints. The metallics have been laid down and highlighted, and I am now working on the purity seals.
Decemb-uary painting update #1
I’m a few days into my Decemb-uary painting challenge and I have been pushing myself to get on with painting my space marine Dreadnought. It’s funny how a couple of weeks away from the painting desk and I seem tentative to put brush to miniature, so I have been taking my time with it, slowContinue reading “Decemb-uary painting update #1”
