For those that have not been following #monstermarch, it is a challenge run by Swordmaster of Hoeth on his blog to get us to paint those bigger gribblies that may be sitting in a box, to galvanize us to build and paint them during the month. Not having a particularly big monster, I committed to… Read More Monster March – Brushes down!
Friday saw the last of the Quarter final games played. I didn’t see two of the games so have scant details on them. So how did I do with my predictions? QF1: Group A 1st (Dan W – Empire) v Group D 1st (Luke B – WoC). Luke B won. This was an exceptionally close game… Read More SELWG WHFB league – Quarter final results
Continuing with Swordmaster of Hoeths Monster March Challenge I present a couple of photo’s of the progress to date. Chieftain on ‘Chariot’ The initial base coat is primarily finished (with just the saddle straps to go). The beast has had a wash and drybrush as has the skin of the rider and the horns/bones. I need… Read More Monster March – Week 2
Or: An Exercise in how not to play the Herd. Friday saw the first ever SELWG KOW competition game being played and I had the pleasure of being one of the competitors, as the Herd of Khazbar the Magnificent (Reborn) faced off against my old nemesis Neil R and his Forces of the Abyss. It’s… Read More KOW - 2017 SELWG Comp – Game 1 vs Forces of the Abyss.
Neil decided for the competition that, rather than players just agreeing terrain (it is a comp after all!) and rather than using the pre-generated maps that helpful players have posted on the Mantic forum, that he would design his own terrain generator. I like what he has done. It’s different and guarantees that there is… Read More KOW - 2017 SELWG Competition – Terrain Generator
On Friday the draw was made by the independent adjudicator (Paul Baker) and the groups are below. I’ve previously covered the comp pack here and my army list here. The first group has been nicknamed the ‘group of death’. This is because it contains the greatest percentage of former champions and semi finalists of the previous… Read More KOW - 2017 SELWG Competition – Groups
Ok, so I am going way off topic with this post but i’m a sucker for any program on physics and space (looking at you Brian Cox and Jim Al Khalili), or nature (David Attenborough). Being able to explore a galaxy is likely why I had a brief (couple of years) foray into EVE online… Read More Detailed map of the Universe
Pre-empting Swordmasters update, I thought I’d post where I am at. The Chieftain has most of the base coat done and a wash has been applied to both the rider and mount (blue to the riders grey skin and brown to the mount). I am stuck on what colour to paint the saddle rim to… Read More Monster March – week 1 update
With me constantly making excuses for not cracking on with any painting recently (in fairness they are not bad excuses, I have a small house, no painting area – bar a coffee table in the lounge, and an ever inquisitive 1 year old that walks around and likes to chew on models left out), I… Read More Monster March
After looking at my Wood Elves and Dwarves I thought i’d also take stock of my latest army: Beastmen. Like the last post, i’ll look at it from a Warhammer point of view, so i’ll group them my Core/Special/Rare/Characters but it will be slightly interspersed with Kings of War references as I have a couple of models… Read More Beastmen/Herd – State of Play
