I had a green eggs and ham moment when painting Kainan's Reapers. I've never been taken by the Ossiarch Bonereapers faction, the models just didn't really appeal to me. But as I was testing an armour colour scheme something definitely clicked and I realised, I do like these models. Not only that, but I would … Continue reading The Slow Grow Project …
As society is finally starting to reopen in this part of the world, I'm really keen to get some games going and put all these minis I painted to good use. There are a few events I am organising. The first is a small Warhammer 40k event for just 4 friends. I have booked a … Continue reading Let’s get some games going …
I recently painted up the Warhammer Underworlds Warband Morgok's Krushas. Ready for action! I did enjoy painting up these miniatures, again I used the Army Painter range for the entire project. There were a few elements I knew I wanted on these models which helped me plan the miniatures. I knew I wanted to go … Continue reading Morgok’s Krushas – Warband for Underworlds
As mentioned previously I am planning to work on some Oathmark miniatures from Northstar. I thought it may be interesting to walk through the process I use in setting up a project. From planning through to execution. I bought these models from Hobby Mad, which is a stockist in Ireland for Northstar minis. Planning the … Continue reading Oathmark: Planning a project
As we come to the end of 2020 I have picked up a set of rules for Oathmark along with a couple of boxes of infantry. Oathmark rulebook along with the 2nd Edition rulebook for Frostgrave Oathmark is a "rank and flank" game from Osprey Publishing, which means you make units of troops in ranks … Continue reading Oathmark!
Earlier this year I picked up a Warband for Warhammer Underworlds, the Wurmspat. It's a three model warband from the Nurgle faction from Age of Sigmar. They remained unpainted, which is not all that remarkable for my models, but in the past week I took paintbrush in hand and painted them up. For me, I … Continue reading Something Wicked this way comes
Nostalgia hit me pretty hard this week when I opened a package to find 6 miniatures, Dwarf troll slayers, which I had owned when I was playing Warhammer Fantasy Battle as a young boy. The models were found by a friend of mine who was part of the gaming group at the time. When I … Continue reading Lessons from before
An interesting question popped up on the facebook group from a player looking to start playing Aeronautica Imperialis: what campaign setting should they go for based on factions and also the different missions available? The player wanted to collect Orks and Imperial Navy, so the obvious answer was to go for Rynn's World Air War … Continue reading Aeronautica Imperialis – Choosing a campaign
This is an update on how my Fyreslayers warband worked out for Warcry. I should disclose this is now the start of my Age of Sigmar Fyreslayers army (1,000 points) which I will continue working on over the coming months. Back to Warcry and my Fyreslayers ... All in all I'm really happy with these. … Continue reading Warcry: Fyreslayers march to the Eightpoints
I've been working on some Aeronautica Imperialis models over the past week and really enjoyed painting them. Aeronautica is a game I very much enjoy, but don't get to play all that often. It falls into that category of games of being 'niche', even though it is made by Games Workshop. The game plays very … Continue reading To the skies!
