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

My Home-Brew Space Marine Chapter – Blood Angels Successors

Is that a big sword on your back…?

I just realised I’ve not painted his helmet lenses… oof. I’ll go back and do that right after this post! I think what’s irking me about Space Marines is they’ve got some really nice looking models out there – like this particular chap, but I just can’t get them to work out properly for my […]

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 […]

Age of Sigmar

Cities of Sigmar
Hailing from the Tempestus Eye, Free Cities of Sigmar.

General on Gryphon

A slight break from book review posts! I’ve been working on this big beastie the past couple of days and finished him off today. Lord Commander Eloth took the day off for the kiddos birthday and we had a good old fashioned painting session while he was at school. I am overall rather chuffed with […]

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.

New daemons?

It’s been a while since I shared some actual hobby on here, but recent conversations have inspired both Lord Commander Eloth and I to pick up some new things and try and get cracking on with our hobbies again – his updates will probably be a bit more exciting, involving a new army and all […]

Stormcast Eternals
I’ve not painted many…

Imperial Stormcast

I painted up this Stormcast during last years Paint-a-thon and he has been sat in the living room display cabinet ever since next to my Badgers and Burrows miniatures. I saw him the other day while having a snoop and realised that his base hadn’t been touched. If he is to remain on display, then […]

Idoneth Deepking
I’ve painted even less

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 […]

The Retinue Begins

I finished the first model for my Inquisitorial Retinue this week – and ticked a model from the backlog. These models are a rather fun to paint. I don’t want them all to look uniform or like an army, more a bunch of people pushed together in the name of the Emperor! This is the […]

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 […]
