I’ve been very busy since my last post, unfortunately not hobby wise 😦 We’ve decided to up sticks and sell the house so I’ve been limited to 1:1 terrain building as I tackled my first go at tiling. Apparently they can go on the wall as well as being used for paint palettes. Who knew? … Continue reading Ready for lift off
As a break from painting miniatures until reinforcements arrive for the Guard, I’ve been putting together some terrain to fit on the KillTeam boards we have. As these boards are based on the old Realm of Battle boards that were sized for the Cities of Death Imperial Sector plastic kits, rather than the newer Sector … Continue reading Cardboard City
My #NewYearNewArmy this time round is what is often referred to as ‘the third army’ i.e. terrain. I was given the Killzone: Munitorum Hub for Christmas by my long suffering wife, which has supplied me with a bit of terrain to build and also a nice cardboard mat which connects (on one side at least) … Continue reading Making a scene
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’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!
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…
Back in the grim dark days of April 2020 I began to form a plan for some 40k tabletop scenery. While I spent most of the year making prototype after prototype for the buildings and therefore not getting much done, I did manage to make a few pieces of scatter terrain. First up was an … Continue reading You must bring us…A STATUARY!
