How to Paint: Quick and Easy Horses (Part 1 of 2)

I have always had an affinity with cavalry-heavy armies, having started my first Empire army at age six. Cavalry units have always been exciting , their rapid movement and generally powerful abilities make them the focal point of the army. Not only that, the horse makes them tower over their footslogging comrades, so they are also a… More How to Paint: Quick and Easy Horses (Part 1 of 2)

Age of Sigmar Battle Report: Empire vs Nurgle

It was the first time we’ve faced off against each other. Rob – 500 points sounded like a lot when we first started playing. Turns… More Age of Sigmar Battle Report: Empire vs Nurgle

Mortarion – Daemon Primarch of Nurgle, part 7

It’s here! It’s finally here! The final, seventh slice of Mortarion. As I write this, he’s actually been finished for just over a month, but I’ve been working on other things and trying to get some interesting and different posts done – I’m sure there’s only so much Nurgle a site can hold. The Wings… More Mortarion – Daemon Primarch of Nurgle, part 7

Saga Sunday- Carolingians and Pesky Proelium

It is now five weeks since my first post regarding my Carolingian force. To be honest, the amount of progress I have achieved during this time came as a bit of a shock to me. I have been quite busy since I started painting them, thanks to work, and I have also found dealing with the non-uniform… More Saga Sunday- Carolingians and Pesky Proelium

Saga Sunday- Carolingians

One month on since my last post on Brush and Boltgun and I have managed to change a pile of unpainted metal Carolingians into, well, a partially painted pile of metal Carolingians!

Model Showcase: Aquaman (By Knight Models)

My best friend is a massive fan of DC Comic’s Aquaman. Having exhausted quite a lot of other Aquaman gifts, and not really following or knowing where the comics are up to, I needed something else. So, I decided to paint Knight Models Aqauman for a Christmas Present: Normally I start with a black undercoat,… More Model Showcase: Aquaman (By Knight Models)

March to War 2018 – 5th Update

The fifth week of March to war, and the first week of February. With maybe around eight weeks to go the time is ticking away fast.

How to paint Space Wolves part 1: Geigor Fell-Hand painted as Bran Redmaw, Wolf Lord

For about three years, I spent my time collecting Space Wolves. I liked the Vikingness of them, and the Chapter’s colours too, so, I amassed a battle company, and chose Bran Redmaw to lead it. Now prior to starting them, there wasn’t a Bran Redmaw miniature, so I’d constructed one from the plastic Space Wolf… More How to paint Space Wolves part 1: Geigor Fell-Hand painted as Bran Redmaw, Wolf Lord

Genestealer Cults – Part 3 – Aberrants

Aberrants! Bless em, meant to be a decent hybrid, ended up a bit like Sloth from the Goonies but with extra arms. And pick axes. And hammers. Anyway, they’re part of the Deathwatch: Overkill game, and like all the rest, they’re really good miniatures. With the four miniatures being push fit, it looks as though… More Genestealer Cults – Part 3 – Aberrants

Christmas in the Underworld – Demons from Frostgrave

Frostgrave, where to start? Well, A while ago, one of my pals, Phil, pointed out Frostgrave to me. Now loving Necromunda, and missing the opportunity for Mordheim through lack of people to game with, I loved it on sight. Literally. Six months later I have loads of stuff for it and have yet to play… More Christmas in the Underworld – Demons from Frostgrave
