Sandstone Necrons (Warhammer 40,000)

As described in a previous article, I have been working away on the Necron half of the Indomitus set.  It's been a lot of fun, and this is the best I've done with actually buckling down and getting some painting done in a very long time.  It also starts me on the journey to the… Continue reading Sandstone Necrons (Warhammer 40,000)

On the Satisfaction of Painting with Texture: Sandstone Necrons

Hello all!  It's been a while.  I recently picked up Indomitus, the new Warhammer 40,000 boxed set from Games Workshop.  It's a really nice set with loads of goodies squeezed into the box.  I mean, take a look: I haven't collected either of the armies contained in the box, and in the run-up I was… Continue reading On the Satisfaction of Painting with Texture: Sandstone Necrons

Peer Pressure Powered Painting

Lockdown: It's getting old, innit? As someone who is now firmly working from home, I'm actually finding my days a lot fuller than I'd expected.  I spend a lot of time working, attending meetings, planning and the like.  This is occasionally interspersed with short breaks on YouTube, Netflix or World of Warcraft.  Sometimes, and this… Continue reading Peer Pressure Powered Painting

New Year, New(ish) Army: Pestilens

I mentioned in a previous post that one of my goals for the coming year is to get some Skaven done! I've had unpainted Skaven for years and, despite their classic, sprue-grey colour scheme, they saw a fair bit of play in 8th edition, back when I was fielding units of 100 or so Skaven… Continue reading New Year, New(ish) Army: Pestilens

Realistic Expectations: Making a Dent in the Pile of Shame in 2020

I have played and collected Games Workshop games and miniatures since the mid-90s. Along the way, I've also picked up a number of miniatures from other companies. I have some Privateer Press, some Infinity, an Italian fleet for Dystopian Wars, a ton of Malifaux... I like miniatures. I like collecting them. I like playing with… Continue reading Realistic Expectations: Making a Dent in the Pile of Shame in 2020

Starting a New Army: Adeptus Mechanicus

It's been a long time since I've done any painting for 40K or Warhammer or... anything, really...  I did some work on some Ariadna for Infinity about a year ago and another pile of Pink Horrors.  I like Pink Horrors, but that was a LOT of pink to paint... Given that I am a slow,… Continue reading Starting a New Army: Adeptus Mechanicus

Holiday Hobbying: Part 1

Hallo! I am out and about at the moment, visiting family and re-engaging with (relatively) metropolitan life in the Central Belt of Scotland... Yeah, it's really confirming that I'm happier up beyond the wall. But it's still a nice change of scenery for a short time. In previous years I've brought too many games with… Continue reading Holiday Hobbying: Part 1

Hobby Update 22/07/18: Red Wash Over Pink

There's not been much goin' on this week.  As with last week, I have been visiting family, but I had a lot less hobby time this week. What time I did have was used for painting as I keep on keeping on with my Tzeentch Daemons.  I've not been making quick progress up to now,… Continue reading Hobby Update 22/07/18: Red Wash Over Pink

Games Workshop's Painting Videos

I'm not the strongest painter around.  I can do some of the basics, but I would like to improve and I reckon that the best thing I could do would be to work on my basic techniques and really get those down solidly before trying anything more complex.   To this end, I am finding the… Continue reading Games Workshop's Painting Videos
