Projects for the week of 23/5/22

Next week is going to be insanely busy for me. I have two major assignments due and an Age of Sigmar tournament to attend. I’ve also been asked to attend a Flesh and Blood event on Thursday night. The assignments are mostly done aside from the contextual work that needs to accompany them and whateverContinue reading “Projects for the week of 23/5/22”

Warcry: First Impressions

And just like that I have two games of Warcy under my belt! I was very impressed by how simple the ruleset is and yet it feels like there is a lot going on. Also it was nice to fit two games into the time it would normally take to play a game of AgeContinue reading “Warcry: First Impressions”

Daughters of Khaine – Warband

So I did the thing I promised myself I wouldn’t do and started a quick new project before putting the finishing touches on my Nighthaunt. Don’t worry though, they are still on my table and I will post the final photos soon. Instead, the deadline for having my Daughters of Khaine Warband ready for battleContinue reading “Daughters of Khaine – Warband”

Battle Report: Kruleboyz vs. Bonereapers

I played a matched play game of Age of Sigmar last night against a player that was having their first game. I really enjoy teaching Age of Sigmar to people and helping them explore another aspect of the hobby. Like me, my opponent started painting miniatures during lockdown as a new hobby to pass theContinue reading “Battle Report: Kruleboyz vs. Bonereapers”

Arena of Shades Nighthaunt – Wash and Base

Another day and more progress on the Nighthaunt. Now they are looking close to done. As an added bonus I managed to get quick bases done so they look even more complete: So what’s left? I just need to highlight the cloaks, bones and a few other things and pick out some detail. Just aContinue reading “Arena of Shades Nighthaunt – Wash and Base”

Arena of Shades Nighthaunt – The Ugly Phase

Oh god, what have I done?! Maybe twenty models was too much at once but this session has been an absolute SLOG. Here is where I am at: As painful as this has been there is a highlight, I kind of love how these two models from the Craventhrone Guard look. Almost like they areContinue reading “Arena of Shades Nighthaunt – The Ugly Phase”

Arena of Shades Nighthaunt – Day One

I began batch painting the Nighthaunt today. I got through the Corax white, Nighhaunt Gloom, Ghost Grey and Rhinox Hide stages for all 20 before calling it a night. Steady progress, tomorrow I’ll probably start on the metallics and other colors. Hopefully I can get the shade on but I expect that might be pushingContinue reading “Arena of Shades Nighthaunt – Day One”

Learning to use a Lightbox

The $10 lightbox I ordered arrived today and it’s about what I expected. It seems like it will do a decent job of lighting up a few minis at a time and cropping away the sides of the box in shots seems to be easy enough. Here is a small gallery of some work inContinue reading “Learning to use a Lightbox”

Arena of Shades Nighthaunt – Starting the Rest

OK, it’s about time I actually knocked a project completely off the list. Meet the next challenge: Over the next few nights I plan on painting the rest of the Arena of Shades set. The easiest way for me to do this I just to batch paint one color at a time. Because my themeContinue reading “Arena of Shades Nighthaunt – Starting the Rest”
