First blog post in a long time - Termagants

So, due to the birth of my daughter (Mia) in March my spare time has been rather limited and I havent really been able to get a lot of painting done. However, I have managed to completely, for now at least, finish painting my Necron army and I have then recently returned to my Tyranids (via a short detour with some Eldar).

If I get a bit more spare time over the next few days then I will try and get some pictures of the finished Necron army uploaded, in the meantime here are some pics of my first 16 Termagants from Hive Fleet Leviathan.

Shelves for Paint Storage

I only managed 1 post on this blog in the first two months and here is my third in the last fifteen minutes, apologies for the overload but finding spare time isn't so easy at the moment. A friend of mine built me some shelves for storing my ever expanding paint collection on as I was getting fed up of having them all stored in a box. So, I now have all my paints directly in front of me as Im sat at my desk and I have to say I find it to be a much more pleasant working environment.

Steve C - Thanks again for taking the time and effort to sort these for me, much appreciated :-)

Unit of Genestealers

As well as working my way through cleaning up and assembling Sedition Wars over the last few weeks I also managed to paint my first unit for my new Tyranid army, in this case it was Genestealers. I stuck with the Hive Fleet Leviathan colour scheme that I tested on a Hormagaunt earlier in the year but this time I cut the number of steps down a bit so that I could paint them a lot quicker. The end result isnt quite to the same standard but its close enough and will save me a hell of a lot of time.


Sedition Wars : First batch painted

I've finally finished painting my first batch of Sedition Wars miniatures, I've also managed to get all of the rest of them assembled and undercoated now so hopefully should get some more done soon. A lot of other people have already commented about the amount of flash and mould lines that needed cleaning up and I have to say I really found the process of getting these ready to be very tedious. I also still need to get my head round the rules of the game, I've very quickly skimmed through the rules once already but didnt really find them to be very intuitive so further studying will be required.

Anyway, here are my first painted Vanguard :

First post in quite a while

So this is my first post of the year and my first post in well over a month. I've been working on quite a few different things in that time so here is it a bit of a rundown:


I've just about finished with my Necron army I think, for the time being at least anyway. I sold off a few assorted bits on ebay and now Im just left with 5 Deathmarks, 5 Destroyers and 3 Overlords/Characters left to paint. Im still intending on gaming with them for quite a while yet though and have managed a couple of games down at York Garrison so far this year.
