I've been struggling with painting motivation for the past few months. Work has been busy and when I've finally had time to myself, the idea of painting has felt more like a chore. As a result, I've done very little. I've currently got Necromunda scenery and a couple of gangs on my painting station. When … Continue reading Painting motivation
A little while ago, I got myself inspired to start an Elder Craftworld army and I managed to pick up a copy of the Wake the Dead boxset. For this army project, I am attempting to not use the colour red, as I seem to use that colour alot. The colour scheme that I am … Continue reading What’s on the Painting Table?
A couple of years ago, some scenery pieces were donated to my local gaming club (First Founding in Hook). I volunteered to build and paint one of them. After taking the kit home, it has sat there in its box, looking at me and making me feel guilty, well no more! After the most recent … Continue reading Club Scenery
I've finally started putting some paint on the Dark Angels. The Tactical Squad are virtually done, I just need to base them. They are looking quite dark as I have only painted them in Caliban Green and then given them a wash of Nuln Oil. I'm not going to brighten them up by painting more … Continue reading What’s on the Painting Table?
Work has been insanely busy of late, so I have not found the time to get much painting in. My cityscape scenery has been left in an almost finished state, but before I move on to more urban buildings, I need to finish a project that has already been started. I had started the Skyshield … Continue reading What’s on the Painting Table?

What's on the painting table is my series of posts showing models that are currently work in … Continue reading What’s on the Painting Table?
Looking back at my Project plans, it appears that I had forgotten to add the Wall of Martyrs to the list of items to get ready for my Mayhem 2018 Gaming Table. Well, regardless, I'm pleased to announce that the Wall of Martyrs is now finished. The wall consists of 1 x Imperial Defence Emplacement … Continue reading Project Update: Wall of Martyrs – Completed
Here are some pictures of my completed Crashed Aquila Lander from the Battle For Macragge 40k boxset. I really like this as a scenery kit, it doesn't give much line of sight blocking (which is very important in the latest edition) but it's a very thematic kit and great for telling a narrative. I chose … Continue reading Scenery Showcase – Crashed Aquila Lander
Happy New Year dear reader! With a new year comes new hobby plans and so what does the grim dark of 2018 hold for me? After failing to achieve my goal of 2017 of finishing the Dark Vengeance boxset (only the Dark Angels left to go) my plan for 2018 will be of course to … Continue reading My Hobby Plans for 2018
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
