After the hecktickness of the show and getting things ready for it, I might have been forgiven if I’d had a bit of hobby burnout or taken my foot off the gas. However at the minute i feel really galvanised, so got straight back on the bandwagon and finished off a unit of 6 Ripperdactyls.… Read More Hobby update – A right ripper of a unit
4 posts in a 48 hour period! Things are going crazy here. As you can probably tell, my hobby has been on overdrive, trying to get things ready for the show. It’s been pretty tunnel vision and all other hobby has gone out of the window. The next items finished were some of the heroes… Read More Hobby update pt3 – character-ful heroes
Flicking through the blog, I realised that I’d completely missed uploading shots of the unit finished just before the Lizardmen Cold-ones, my Grail Knights. I again followed my trend of keeping a unified colour scheme across the unit though this time I attempted to add a bit more detail to some of them, adding cross… Read More Hobby update pt 2 – We can make you stronger, faster, Bret-er!
With the launch date of the Call of the Crown as 30th September, I thought I’d better get a mosey on and start hammering away at my pledge. With 6 Lizardmen coldone riders already on the table and started, I’d excluded them from the pledge but with another 6 not started, it seemed as good… Read More Hobby Update – a case of cold ones!
Continuing with dipping the toe back into 40k, I was due to have my final competition game on the 3rd but my opponent had to pull out last minute due to the dreaded Nurgles rot. Thankfully I was able to find another opponent at short notice and one i’d not played before (not difficult with… Read More Shadow Sentinels vs Death Guard & 40k list evaluation
After the build up and running of the club demo game, I had a bit of inevitable hobby burnout. That’s not to say I didn’t do anything but I definitely didn’t have the urge to go near a brush for a while. To get me back in the swing of things I went back to… Read More Hobby Update – Bretonnian Archers and WE Treekin.
After my run on space marines I had the itch to get back onto the fantasy bandwagon. Having painted a pretty simple colour scheme for the SM I thought I’d challenge myself and like a glutton for punishment went straight for the Bretonnians. Like many I have a love/hate relationship with them. I love the… Read More Hobby update – Bretonnians
Warning – will contain expletives! It’s happened, I’ve finally been forced onto the new editor and my god it’s fucking shite. I cannot comprehend how anyone outside of a developer could think the new editor was intuitive. You press return and it adds a new block rather than a new line. I still haven’t worked… Read More Hobby update (Lizardmen, Marines, Assassin) and mini rant about Gutenburg
Space Marine I thought I’d start with something different today. It’s been an age since I’ve painted any 40K, but having split the indominatus box with a club mate, I actually had the urge to do so! The Judiciar was actually the model I least liked in the box. It didn’t take long for me… Read More Hobby update – Space Marine and Bretonnians
The rare choices represent, as the title says, those items that are the least commonly available. They are restricted to a 0-2 choice in 8th with a maximum of 25% of the points. It also arguable contains some of the strongest choices available to the army. The previous parts of the review can be found… Read More Dwarf Army Book Review – Part 6 – Rare Choices
