With a lack of Mechanicus Standard Grey and a lack of effort to brave the outside and go and get some, this past weekend saw me putting together the remaining unbuilt terrain kits that I will be using as a gaming table for the upcoming Mayhem 40k tournament. As a recap, I have set myself … Continue reading Half Year Project Update
After re-reading the battle report from White Dwarf 222: The Last Stand at Glazer's Creek, I've been inspired to paint some Praetorian Imperial Guardsmen. The original models are no longer available from the Games Workshop website and purchasing from eBay would be far too expensive, but there are plenty of head options available to use … Continue reading Test Imperial Guard Scheme
I finished this a few months back and like many of my models, it stood unfinished for a long time. Now it is finally completed: The Plasma Obliterator Tower.
So, we're now halfway through the year, so what better time for a project update. For those who cannot remember, or are too lazy to read previous posts, my plan for this year was to start and then finish painting the Dark Vengeance box set.

This means that tonight, all being well, I might be able to get some models painted. … Continue reading Hobby Update
Monday night is hobby night. Tonight is the one night of the week when I try my hardest to get some painting done. Usually, I don't get much finished, but every now and then I manage to get something posted to Twitter for #miniaturemonday. It does feel that I'm getting a little obsessed with this … Continue reading Hobby Night
This post as been in my Draft folder for ages. Might as well post it. Anyway, apparently, I suck at 40k. I've managed to get two games in since my destruction at the hands of the Necrons and things have not improved. I wont bore anyone with the details of these games but I'll include … Continue reading Losing
Updates to the blog aren't happening as frequently as I'd like so apologies for that but this update is different to my previous ones, for I have taken a larger step into the hobby. But before that: Orks After finishing The Mentors, I needed a change from Space Marines (more importantly, white Space Marines!). I … Continue reading Gaming and Greenskins
