Intercessors

I’ve been working on finishing up a few of the Space Marines as of late, and managed to get the five man squad of intercessors finished off. Why do models always look decent until they’re photographed? I can see so many bits that I missed and really should touch up, but prior to that I…

Infrared: Clarence Park & Chesham Woods

Another adventure with the Infrared Camera. This time to Clarence Park and Chesham Woods – a park local to where we live. These were taken in the evening in vibrant evening light, but the ones in the woods weren’t as successful, purely because woods are darker than full-bright light that Infrared Photography benefits from the…

IR & B&W Side by Side

Rather than just write brief, somewhat condescending sounding comments to Bookstooge about Infrared and Black and White, I thought making a Side by Side comparison of the two (as suggested) would be a better way to show the difference between the two sorts of photography. These aren’t the most spectacular photographs ever; I was walking…

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.…

And the beat goes on.

It has been a while since I got the urge to do any miniature painting, but as with everything, it comes back around and the brushes get picked up again and project continue as though the time off never happened! Today, I continued work on the Stormblood Guard in the form of the Easy to…

Stormblood Guard

I have felt my hobby inspiration leaning more towards Age of Sigmar as of late – mostly due to reading more fantasy books than 40k ones. Rather than make up my own Stormhost I thought I’d look for an official one. When looking through a list of Stormhosts, I found one called the Stormblood Guard…

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…

Hobbying along.

I thought I’d share my more recent hobby attempts! It feels like it’s been a while again and, as always, trying to get back into the flow of hobbying. Daemons of Chaos I got a test model done for my Tzaangor unit; these are allies for my Daemons of Chaos army – which is added…

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…

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…
