I recently posted the entrants for our local gaming club's Space Marines Chapter Creation Contest. Following voting, we now have some results. The voting was split into two sections, wherein contestants were ranked in their paint scheme and on the background or lore they produced for their chapter. In the rankings below, you can click… Continue reading Chapter Creation Contest: the Results
I recently added a large about my local gaming grouo, The Northern Knights. They're a great bunch whom I am very much missing in this time of lockdown and closed gaming venues. We've done a pretty good job of keeping in touch using Discord, holding painting contests and playing some online games. It's actually been… Continue reading The Northern Knights: Chapter Creation Contest
Why do I leave things so late? I got off to a good start with this contest, but it's really fallen away. It's only been today that I've returned to it and actually put brush to miniature. Here's what I have so far, in term of a colour scheme: A bit bland, perhaps, but it… Continue reading The Claws of Man: Competition Progress

I'm not doing well in keeping up with the timescales, but I'm happy with how the painting is going, overall. it's good for me!… Continue reading Hobby Update 05/08/18: Burn the Gooleyman!
