Competition: Rocket Racoon

Competition: Rocket Racoon


I have been following Massive Voodoo painting blog site for many years and it is one that has inspired me to starting my own crazed writings. They are a bunch of very very talented painters that cannot help to motivate and inspire me to keep painting and trying new techniques.

      Every year they run a painting competition and this year they have 2 catagories, the first being water and the second being Disney Infinity models.
    I had been inspired by a post that Roman put up with his Iron Man  model.

Army List: 30k Space Wolves

Army List: 30k Space Wolves

My current reading has been Thousand Sons, and the Forge World Inferno book, I have been looking to start a new 30k army for some time now, I have always been drawn to Space Wolves and there were one of the armies I fondly remember collecting when I started in the hobby many years ago.
          As you will have seen from my other posts I am currently working on 5 Primaris Marines in a more modern Space Wolves colour scheme.

Check after the break the list I am working on

WIP : SPACE WOLVES PRIMARIS MARINES PART 2

WIP : SPACE WOLVES PRIMARIS MARINES PART 2

This week I have made some solid progress on the Space Wolves, I have learnt not to fully glue them together as it does make it difficult to reach some of the areas. But great fun to paint.

Product Spotlight : Brush Cleaner

Product Spotlight : Brush Cleaner




Today I received a new product to spotlight, most of us painters will simply wash our brushes out with clean water at the end of ever painting session, but in time we find the point fraying and splitting.

This is a brush cleaning soap that you rub the tip of the moist brush through and gently work through before washing out with clean water.

Easy to source picked, mine up from Amazon for under £5

Great little hobby purchase

WIP: Knight Questor 1

WIP: Knight Questor 1

Last night I got some paint on the Questor Knights Cloak. This is acting as my test character before I tackle the Lord Aquilor. 

The cloak is built up from Khorne Red, brought lighter by adding Tuskgor Fur between in each layer is a thinned glaze of Bloodletter red to help blend the colours and maintain the rich red. To get to the final level Fulgrim Pink was added to the mix. 

The tabard started with Kantor Blue with a layer of Nuln Oil. Then again with Kantor Blue and then brought up with Teclis Blue and finally Blue Horror. I am not to happy with how the blue has come out, but as it is the tabard between the legs not a lot is showing, but will have to work on the blending on the outside of the cloak.

Happy with the progress so far, but that deadline cloak is ticking 

Comments and thoughts always welcome

Army Lists: Path To Glory

Army Lists: Path To Glory



Could not help but be inspired by this piece of art work and this definitely drove my purchasing choice for the core start to my Stormcast army.

Still being new to Age of Sigmar I am still getting to grips with the 3 playing options. Being a long time WFB player I am certainly used to points match games. Not sure I am keen on 'Hey bring some models and we will roll some dice' approach. So to try a new take on gaming I have chosen to run a small Paths to Glory campaign with a couple of friends as we are all new to AoS.

Champion: Lord Aquilor. This gives me 4 units to choose from

Hero: Knight Questor

Infantry: 3 Prosecutors

Infantry : 10 Liberators

Mounted: 3 Vanguard Palladors

I pretty much picked the units I purchased this month and 10 Liberators from the starter set and the Knight Questor from the Talisman box set. Hopefully will get my first game next week, and will attempt my first Battle Report.

Any one else used Paths to Glory as their way to play? If so pop a comment or a link.
