The Blanche is strong with this one. As a fan of Warhammer 40k since it was called Rogue Trader, I have found the new direction of the post-Kirby era GW to be uplifting and with the release of many interesting minis I have begun spending money on them again. Kill Team: Rogue Trader is one […]Read More Kill Team Rogue Trader: The Gellerpox Infected
Forge World’s Herald of Nurgle! I like this one so much better than the GW Plaguebearer herald mini, which I think is rather uninspired. Half man, half slug, half robot, all baby sitter! This is the companion piece to the Forge World Daemon Prince of Nurgle I recently painted, and comes in […]Read More Urutaa / Death Guard: Herald of Nurgle
Forge World’s Daemon Prince of Nurgle! I like this one so much better than the GW space marine daemon prince mini. I bought this second hand some time ago, and now that I have looked at the forgeworld site to see what the name of this mini actually is (turns out it is […]Read More Urutaa / Death Guard: Daemon Prince of Nurgle
Urutaa is a Maori word meaning “pestilence” and “plague” and “fever”. It is also a sound that evokes “METAL!”. So I will call the whole army Urutaa. Because they kill you FILTHY! I bought heavily into the new editon 40k and especially the Death Guard when they were released. At the same time I also […]Read More Urutaa: A Plague of Daemons
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!
