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)
How’s the painting going you ask? Well... I still haven’t finished the last infantry squad from the January combat patrol. Most of the base coating has been done, and I’m planning on getting them done by the end of this weekend. I would say that real life has got in the way, but in truth … Continue reading It’s oh so quiet…
