I overcame some of the 'large model' intimidation feelings and started on the Gryphon for my Cities of Sigmar army this weekend. It's mostly work on the underside of the wings that I've done so far - the rest of the model has been base coated with contrast Skeleton Horde and needs a lot of... Continue Reading →

Hobby Motivation

I have been largely demotivated with hobby lately - to the point where I've not updated the blog in over a month, let alone picked up a brush and put any colours onto any models. True, I have been reading a metric tonne of books, but overall action on the miniatures hobby has been lacking.... Continue Reading →

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... Continue Reading →

Hobby Summary 2020

It's the time of year to look back on what's been achieved throughout the year in terms of hobby and quite honestly, I am hanging my head in shame this year.

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... Continue Reading →

Demigryph Knights

Cities of Sigmar As fun as these models have been to paint, they've been a real pain to photograph! I've managed to finish off the Demigryph Knights for my Cities of Sigmar army this week and I admit I am chuffed to ribbons with how they've turned out. They've been great models to work on...

One down, one to go

Cities of Sigmar Just a quick update from last night. I managed to get the layers on one of the remaining Demigrpyh Knights. I'll do a bit of work on the layers of the remaining Knight today and hopefully get them based and finished off soon so I can photograph them all together as a... Continue Reading →
