The fourth round of the Lead Painter’s League has a “support weapon” theme. I painted the following with this in mind, but I ended up entering something else instead. The Sledgehammer BFG by Victoria Miniatures via the Reaper Bones third kickstarter. I have not actually painted any large vehicles or similar kits like this in […]Read More It’s Sledgehammer Time!
Nurgle has always been the Chaos power I found most appealing. With the advent of the Death Guard in the 40k 8th ed starter sets, I have started collecting a new 40k Death Guard army. Yeah, well. A massive fail of the willpower throw there. So I have been building loads of the new models, […]Read More Spreading the Disease: Classic Plaguebearers rebased and expanded
After I got my 3D printer I have been printing off a bunch of lipped bases in different sizes to do my random minis up. So naturally, some of my random little minis get based every once in a while. Such as these little darlings: These are mounted on 20mm bases. […]Read More Two snotlings and a baby squig
Every few months I get the itch for some Chaos Marines. Good thing I have the minis from Dark Vengeance set lying about to scratch with. Here is the third one of the squad I have completed. They take ages to do, with all the busy details, so the squad will probably be finished sometime […]Read More Dark Vengeance: Chaos Marine with Lightning Claws
The Pink Purple Horror: The other is pink, but a way of to be finished. These have so much detail and take ages to paint! Pink Horror of Tzeentch / Herald of Tzeentch from the Silver Tower base game set by Games Workshop also for Age of Sigmar / Warhammer 40.000 HIPS plastic […]Read More Into the Silver Tower: The Purple Horror of Tzeentch
I have gone a month or so without touching paint to mini. After my summer holiday I simply have not had the inclination. Or rather, I have not had the inclination at the same time as opportunity. Sigh. I have been moving boxes and bags about in the cellar to make room for knocking down […]Read More Unfinished business: Tyranid Gaunts
I have been going through some of my boxes of older minis to find some I can sell to fund my massive overspending on minis and kickstarters. And I came across these excellent old blighters. Not selling those. Oh no. How can you not love that adorable face? With these I continued experimenting with my […]Read More Oldhammer: Pink and Blue Horrors of Tzeentch
Back from the summer holidays at last, I am trying to get something done about all the stuff just standing about and cluttering up my shelving. Lots of it is just standing around awaiting undercoats or what not. I have started with some of those that have gone a step beyond the undercoat, first up is the rest of the […]Read More Back from my summer holiday, finishing the Cockroach Cluster!
…And I finished the second of the Chaos Marines from the Dark Vengeance box set. Too many details! Takes ages even with my sloppyfast paint style. enough said. 25mm base, polystyrene plastic. Total minis painted so far this month: 44Read More Last post of the day: Chaos Marine
So I spent a couple hours on these space zombies today, all the painting time I have had in about a fortnight. 10 more means that 31 or so are done. And bonus: Mike Wazowski, a Reaper Bones 2 “Hordling”, some sort of minor demon. Very minor. That base is 20mm.Read More Space Hurps part three
This week has seen little time for hobby, so I “cheated” by doing groups that were extra super fast to finish. First the Reaper Bones 77016: Rats. 12 of them to be precise. These are cute little critters. Until you notice that they are the size of rather large dogs…and they are many, A shotgun only […]Read More The third for March
So February’s challenge was met and surpassed by several bonus minis painted. Hoody Hoo! I managed to keep on track for this, even when being so flighty as I am. Seems to be a recipe to get something done. For March I think I want to do something about squads, teams or units. As in squads I have […]Read More My Resolutionary Challenge for March
