I shamelessly copied Lord Commander Eloth with this idea, he did it first and I though it looked pretty epic!

Scout Sergeant Knives

I wrote about this guy in a previous post. So, if you want to know more about who he is and what this means, then by all means go visit there. I’ll see if I can dig out the old Knives model and share them side by side at some point in the near future!

Aris 412th
The dodgiest Astra Militarum Company you’ll ever see!

Pin-up Commissar

Some time last year I brought myself this fantastic Pin-up model by Anvil Industries – they make some great character models and I’ve never been a huge fan of GW Commissar models so when this guy graced my presence I just knew I had to paint him up for my Astra Militarum… somehow, he just…

The Shadowspear Box-set painted up as Mortifactors

Shadowspear Mortifactors

Sadly, my lightbox is too small to photograph all the models in the army together properly – I’ll have to see if I can get a nice day for them to go outside and be photographed in natural light; I should do that when I take them beyond the ‘tabletop…

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…

Sneaking in from the Old World – Square bases and all


Another one crossed off the Lizardmen to-do list – it’s always satisfying to get a larger model finished. I’ve had the base lizard of this done for a good few years but was always a bit intimidated by the Solar Engine on the back – it was a needless intimidation because it was actually pretty…

Daemons of Chaos
They’re for Age of Sigmar, so technically it’s not Heresy.

Shockingly Pink!

I did a bit more work on my Tzaangors last night. I did another couple of tests for the skin using some contrast paint – Volopus Pink. I was happy with how they turned out so batch painted them. The contrast is over a base coat of Fulgrim pink, which I’ll also use to layer…

Miniature Monday

Hello everyone~ In an attempt to give my blog some sort of organisation, I’ve decided to start a few special weekly features – a bit like how Fangirl Friday used to be, but for other things. One of these features of Miniature Monday. I have been live-streaming some mornings a week while I paint and…

Quick hobby update

After a long discussion via Twitter about being in a Hobby Slump and not really sure how to get myself out of it, I figured the best way to do something was to start small and simple and see where it takes me. I don’t know why I have been struggling as much as I…

Old-hammer painting project with Lord Commander Eloth

New Year, Old Army

As Lord Commander Eloth has already reported, we saw the New Year in painting miniatures. Sometime earlier in the Christmas holidays we decided we should bring in 2021 painting some of our oldest miniatures. Our Bretonnians. We brought them as a momento of a disastrous holiday in Northumbria in which we camped in a very…

Hares and Dinos

We had a bit of a painting session this evening. I worked on three derpy dinos and the hare knight from Burrows and Badgers. These are both part way through the painting process, the hare needs a few more washes and then some layering work doing. The Dinos have been based, washed and dry brushed.…

World of Parrvolis – World Building
A world of my own building


It’s been a hot minute since I drew some orcs! Still, keeping the Parrvolis thing going – still need to look at menus – and I’ve been meaning to get something of Thrazo down on paper ever since he turned up! He is Elijah Lyntons henchman, a mercenary and an orc, they aren’t common in…

World of Parrvolis – Writing

Waking the Dead

A bit before Christmas, I expressed an interest in writing. All within a world that I was creating – Oure. Then lockdown hit the UK and everything became about surviving the winter. Anything other than reading felt like a struggle. Now that longer, warmer days are here I feel able and ready to pick things…
