144 - Chimera Conversion Time

144 - Chimera Conversion Time

I'm alive still - just suffering with lack of time through work etc. But I have still had a bit of hobby time. I bought myself a couple of Chimera conversion kits a while back and decided that if I didn't have the motivation for painting stuff I could at least build the tanks that are still boxed.

142 - Alternative Hydra Turrets


So GW have released the new Hydra/Wyvern double kit. It look's quite nice, you can easily make both kits and it fits well with the rest of the range, albeit with that curved gun shield looking a little out of place when compared to some of the blockier tanks. However, I have one big problem with the kit - why on earth is the turret open topped!?

141 - Did Someone Say Apocalypse?

141 - Did Someone Say Apocalypse?

A weekend of typical English weather (rain followed by sun, followed by rain, followed by sun etc etc) couldn't put a dampener on an Apocalypse battle that I'd been involved in.

The original plan was for a battle between Tau and Orks against the forces of the Imperium - Space Marines and Guard. Instead it ended up being Space Marines versus an allegiance of Orks and Guard - including Commissar Yarrick and Ghazghkull Thraka on the same side.

140 - Cadian Production Line Part 1

140 - Cadian Production Line Part 1

I am a slow painter. And when I slow, I mean glacial. I'm pretty sure by the time I've finished painting a squad a new layer of sedimentary rock will have formed. Nevertheless, I continue with what my wife surely sees as some sort of penance for sins committed in a previous life as I hunch over my desk. Anyway, I've been inspired by Ady over at Praetorian XXIV (who has just done an 11 part series of posts) to try and get some of the infantry sitting on my desk finished. Read on for more babbling.

139 - Mega Bastion Part 4: Dazzle Camo (Kind Of)

139 - Mega Bastion Part 4: Dazzle Camo (Kind Of)

At the end of the last post I left you somewhat hanging on for more pictures of the Bastion. I ended up having to go and buy more paint, just to be sure, as I was running a bit low on all three colours. Carry on reading for a look at what happened next.

138 - Mega Bastion Part 3: Now With Added Paint

138 - Mega Bastion Part 3: Now With Added Paint

There has been one project that has been staring back at me, languishing at the top of my display cabinet, that I chose to add to over the past couple of weeks. I grabbed the Mega Bastion off the shelf, gave it a quick dust down and grabbed some paint. This was also going to be a chance for to try out another of the stencil designs from Anarchy Models. Read on to see what I've been up to.

137 - Anarchy Models Stencils Review - Digi Camo

137 - Anarchy Models Stencils Review - Digi Camo

This is going to be a review of the new stencils that Anarchy Models brought out through their Kickstarter. I've only had a chance to use one design but I have got plans for the other stencil designs. I tried them out on the Nova-Rus Bear from Antenocitis Workshop, so read on for my view on the Digi Camo (No 2) stencils.

136 - Antenocitis Workshop Review on Talk Wargaming

136 - Antenocitis Workshop Review on Talk Wargaming

As part of the blog redesign, I've been doing a couple of articles for Talk Wargaming. The first of these was a reworded and shortened version of my Shadowsword magnetisation tutorial, which can be found here (and here is the link to the originals).

135 - The Magnetised Manticore (/Deathstrike) - S92 "Nubis" (Cloud)

135 - The Magnetised Manticore (/Deathstrike) - S92 "Nubis" (Cloud)

I'm not sure what's been going on, but I've managed to get several models finished within a few weeks of each other. This is good news as it means that unfinished models are no longer just gathering dust, they are finished (and gathering dust)!

And that dust gathering finished model is my other Manticore. It is the magnetised Manticore as detailed in post 133. And as you can probably guess from the title, this is a special tank.
