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 really like the Sylvaneth models. I'm quite certain I'm not alone in this regard. The 'living tree spirits' make for some very interesting and cool looking models. From the Dryads, through the Revenants and larger Kurnoth Hunters, up to the Treelords. There are many textures in the models, from the gnarled wood to the … Continue reading Sylvaneth Army – From Warcry to Age of Sigmar
Not one to let a good burst of momentum go, after completing my squad of Incursors and a Librarian character for my Blood Angles army - the challenge I had set for myself. I used my new found motivation to tackle a few other units. First up were the Bladeguard. These are fantastic miniatures and … Continue reading Blood Angels Reinforcements – pt 2

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
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!
Time to get some Fyreslayers painted as we enter another few weeks of lockdown. Update: Results of my efforts can be viewed here. As we enter into lockdown, a few of us have decided to focus on a project to help us better manage the whole lockdown experience. A simple enough challenge is to paint … Continue reading Lockdown 2: Painting Fyreslayers
We played our first game of Warhammer 40,000 9th edition, it was a bloody affair. The latest edition of 40k includes a campaign system called 'Crusade' which has you take a few units in a small force and over the course of a number of encounters they gain combat experience and develop skills. It's very … Continue reading Enemy sighted, to battle!
Warhammer 40,000 and the Indomitus Crusade. For Warhammer 9th Edition I am working on a Blood Angels army, which is building upon a hobby project I had over the Coronavirus lockdown where I painted a group of Blood Angel veterans for the game Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team. Here is a gallery of images for the … Continue reading We are going on Crusade..
