Miniature Monday – 4th Oct

That week zoomed by quickly! Another instalment of Miniature Monday is already upon us – although I’ll be adding a couple of things at the end of this post that concern other topics too!

Stormblood Guard

This week for the Stormblood Guard, I have mostly been sticking Paladins together. These are fantastic models and I am a fan of their big, pointed sticks. And the one lurking at the back with the boppy mace! I’ll have to wait for the weather to improve before I can prime them again (The story of a UK hobbyist in Autumn/Winter!)


This weeks, I’ve been working on the layers for my Tzaangors – they’re good fun to paint because of the more colourful colour combination. I’ve got a fair handful yet to do before the unit can be called finished though!

Cities of Sigmar

Just a minor update on the Cities of Sigmar army. I’ve put some base coat and washes on a unit of Dreadspears and base-coated and washed a Wizard that has a dubious attachment to staffs…

These, a bit like the rest of the Tzaangors need layering up and finishing off. I’ll see what I can do on that front this week… but…

Other news

My Father-in-Law was having a clear out of his books and I couldn’t resist his fiction collections. In here there is a lot of Bernard Cornwell, Conn Iggulden and Simon Scarrow; mostly Historical Fiction with the exception of the Game of Thrones books. I’d like to be a bit more ‘serious’ on the book blogging front and this liberation of books has given me the spur I think I needed to fully embrace what was already happening – a shift in blogging purposes.

I’ve been thinking of taking my own photographs of books for the blog and instagram and this is one I took earlier today with some of the things I have laying about.

I have another idea in mind for some pictures, that are a little less… fluffy! I’ll see how it goes and share the results when I have them done.
