No, I haven’t yet succumbed to painting up an Imperial Knight for my Guard army (note the ‘yet’…), but I have indulged in painting up a couple of historical minis to try to break this painting block I’ve been in. Now, it’s been over 20 years since I last painted a historical mini (Imperial Romans … Continue reading Oh, what a Knight!
I haven't posted for a couple of months. To be honest, the distraction bugbear hit me well and good, and I've been indulging in a couple of other projects unrelated to the theme of this site, as well as being dragged back onto another social media platform that has done nothing but become a time … Continue reading One year on…
Remember the Woodland Scenics trees I picked up earlier in the year? Well I thought I’d try out getting them ready for the table. I stuck the bases for three of them onto an old DVD and covered the surface with decorators caulk. Once I’d spread it out thinly I added a handful of very … Continue reading Terrain Tracks
I don’t usually post work in progress shots, but as there has been very little progress in the last month I’m making an exception. Having been very distracted from 40k with a return to RPG campaign building it’s high time my rogue trader got some more painted troops. I still need to have at least … Continue reading Back in Black (and green)
I’ve had a few weeks off from 40K stuff, playing a few sessions of D&D and getting distracted by new minis. Some of this has been prompted by a few of the recent releases from GW in the form of the re-released Killzones. I can understand their price points, but their utter dishonesty in advertising, … Continue reading I can hardly contain myself…
I'm not going to make a habit of cross-posting, but here's the other half of the Dungeon Pizza I shared last time: https://darkdungeonsanddragonslairs.wordpress.com/2021/03/09/wilderness-pizza/
Cross posted from my other (new) blog: Dark Dungeons & Dragons Lairs. Let's kick things off here with a crafting post. The inspiration for this project came from Professor Dungeon Master over at the DungeonCraft YouTube channel: https://youtu.be/7_hq7JE55CQ I really like the abstraction of combat mapping shown in this video (and a couple of others … Continue reading Dungeon Pizza!
February's output was nowhere near what I wanted to achieve, in fact I haven't painted anything since my last update. I even missed out on painting up Severina Raine for Lead Balloony's Fembruary challenge. There are a few reasons for this. Firstly, the other two players in our household Tale of Four Three Gamers have … Continue reading March Forwards!
Time for another update! Given the awful weather we've had recently, I've not really been able to prime anything (either too wet or too windy), so I decided to look through my upcoming models to see what was 'brush ready'. The tally was (from the top left, clockwise):- company command squad- 1/2 infantry squad (I … Continue reading #NewYearNewArmy – Parts 9 & 10- Elites
I have now finished the last of the units I'd planned for January and the 25 power Combat Patrol is done. Only two weeks overdue... Pictures are a little fuzzy And all gathered together: I've added the Rogue Trader's sigil transfers to the rest of the units, as well as recolouring the holo projection in … Continue reading #NewYearNewArmy – Part 8 – Troops (the second)
