Finishing Stuff

Welcome back!

a bit of a short one this week; i’m playing in a 40k tournament on Sunday so been prepping an army and background; it’s my first 40k tournament since 2001 (Conflict Bristol, where i placed 12th!) it’s an unusual army so keeping it quiet 🙂

That said, i’m looking at Streaming with Hamish so been getting a few stand alone games completed, i showed some Super Dungeon Explore before and i’m still working through it

While i’ve been working on boring minions i did allow myself some work on the cute heroes…

i’ve got the dragon half of hte box on my desk then another 4 heroes to complete the box

i’ve also been doing more Bloodbowl; i know Hamish doesn’t want to play it again but i may try to get to more tournaments this year…

not using Skaven though as i’m not a fan of the miniatures…

That said, i showed you my Escher recently so have started the Goliaths…

a standard paintjob as they’re only going to be used to demo the new game
i did dig out a pair of fresh gangs for the original game as we may play that first to demonstrate how different the games are

The Stalking Bats, House Delaque mostly by Heresy Miniatures

The Red Eyes, House Escher; current plastics bolstered by old school metals

To finish i’ve had these guys sat on my desk for months and months since i finished My Lamenters Army.
As i picked up the Blood Angels Codex from Triple Helix recently i thought i’d slap some paint on them!

That was a productive week; next week i plan on having lots of images from the Tournament!
I hope my dice hold out and i see some great armies!

thanks for reading and Have Fun!

Better late than never!

as after some updates i was unable to login!
thankfully owning the domain helped a bit

That said, i’ve not really got alot to show; i’ve been paint stripping and reassembling some Chaos Marine stuff; turns out i’ve nearly got 1500pts as is…

i’m still painting Curiosity Killed The Cat; managing to paint all the Ally Cats / Malifaux Rats.
You’re supposed to put some on the base for Mrs Abernathy but with my custom bases there’s not alot of room.
Plus with Hamelin you need alot of rats / cats so i’ve based them up individually
not terribly exciting but some tiny tiny miniatures there; may need to go back and do some gap filling…

Following on, i’m hoping to pick up Betrayal At Calth this weekend so got The Blood Angels moving again with some left over Assault Marines from a previous project

nothing too interesting to write about there but i do need to find some examples of 30k squad markings…

Talking of old projects i’ve been playing Dionzi at Bloodbowl2 and picked up the tabletop version again

these guys are really uninspiring so i’m finding them hard work.
i do plan, once they’re all done, is make some dirty inks to dull down the metals somewhat; i loved GWs Armour Wash (Grey) and Flesh Wash (browny-green) for some amazing ink effects!

Finally, Hogswatch is on it’s way so i’ve been doing something festive as a bit of a laugh

Nonetheless, we should have a Model Box for next week or i might get some more of the Malifaux stuff done; they’ll want some of the dirty inks as well and i like to do things in batches!

Thanks for reading and Have Fun!


more randomness

Welcome back!

it’s been a bit of an unusual week this week; i’m off on my jollidays next week so i’ve been putting stuff together to post while i’m away and so haven’t got alot done!

as i’ve mentioned, when i’m back i’m going to be co-hosting Tabletop Tuesdays with Hamish The Polar Bear and i’ve been looking at different games to play.
i’m continuing with the Bloodbowl, but as the game peices will be more identifiable in their coloured plastic, i’ve been painting the Skaven

fairly generic colourscheme; greens and browns, dark shades.

as i’ve shown the assassins, i’ve started the Cultists for Execution Force; more fairly generic paint jobs but clear bases to see those board sections

mainly orange as a spot colour to help them stand out against the blues of the Assassins.

Hamish himself has bought Warhammer Quest: Silver Tower and while i’m a big fan of the original WHQuest, i thought i’d paint up a Barbarian to play with Hamish’ copy

a slight conversion with the axe, but he was designed to go with a barbarian regiment i’ve been working on for a while.

perhaps the most ambitious of projects, i had some monopose orc boyz with shields knocking about and deicded to make me some models for Brewhouse Bash

having cut the shields off, i need to resculpt the details and they’ll work well as some bar-fighting boyz!

i’m hoping to make the board and tokens as well but atleast i’ve got White Dwarf 223 and the original peices still!

so, sorry for the short post this week; next week i’ll have this month’s Model Box to cover and that only leaves 1 post to work out while abroad 🙂

many thanks for reading and Have Fun!
