Hobby Bingo 2021

In recent years (possibly every year?), White Dwarf magazine has produced some sort of plan to encourage hobbyists to get their projects completed over the course of a year. This year's attempt is a form of Hobby Bingo. Essentially there are 25 boxes in a grid. Each box contains a hobby task to complete over … Continue reading Hobby Bingo 2021

Hobby Resolutions 2019

It's that time of year again when plans are made to be better/fitter/healthier people in the coming year. Well just like last year, I will be refusing to join a gym and get involved with all that running around and getting sweaty. Instead, my New Year's Resolution will be to to complete some hobby goals. … Continue reading Hobby Resolutions 2019

What’s on the Painting Table?

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?

Project Update/Completion – Aquila Strongpoint

It is now the 12th of May 2018, the day of First Founding's Mayhem tournament. That also means the deadline for my half year project.

The exceptions being some of the additional weapons … Continue reading Project Update/Completion – Aquila Strongpoint

Project Update – Munitorum Armoured Containers & Vengeance Weapon Battery

This weekend finally saw me finish both the Munitorum Armoured Containers as well as the Vengeance Weapon Battery.

I decided that I didn't want all of the containers … Continue reading Project Update – Munitorum Armoured Containers & Vengeance Weapon Battery

Project Update – Bastion & Aegis Defence Line

The project is beginning to build momentum, as this week I have finished one of the Imperial Bastions and put the finishing touches to the Aegis Defence Line. For this project, I'm not painting any of the gun emplacements as they will not be used on the gaming table at the tournament. I will paint … Continue reading Project Update – Bastion & Aegis Defence Line

Project Update: Wall of Martyrs – Completed

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

Half Year Project Update

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

Forever Delayed

The below post was written back in January (as all New Year's Plans should be made in that month). Life being what it is, this post has sat unfinished and unposted (until now!), so please, cast your mind back to the hazy days of two months ago... So the Grimdark of 2016 has been and … Continue reading Forever Delayed
