The Barn Find Project


Yesterday, I traded a small fortune in Lord of the Rings miniatures for a Stormraven wreck. As for value, it was probably the worst trade in existence, but the fact is, I was never going to use those miniatures and they would probably have been thrown away at some point.

Rise of the Warlock


Eldar Warlocks saw themselves drop a bit in utility, from my end at least, they were a 35 point Conceal caster that led my Guardians on the field. With the abundance of 'Ignores Cover' rules however, that usefulness dropped and they could no longer be relied upon to increase the survivability of my troops and eventually saw themselves left off the list.

With the dawn of 7th Edition however, and from what I have been reading in this weeks White Dwarf, I am seriously considering the Warlock in my forces again.

My painting journey so far


It recently occurred to me that I have passed my first year of blogging without actually doing anything to mark the occasion. I was sitting around looking at everything I have painted, and decided that perhaps I should do a showcase of some of my single figures throughout the years to show the progress that I have made, and hopefully, inspire someone.

Blood Angel Captain


I didn't really have a lot on on Saturday, so I sat down and took a break from the Wood Elves to paint up the first of the Web Exclusive Space Marine Captains. Because I have something of a Blood Angels army, he was painted in the colours of the chapter, and gave me a chance to use brighter colours than normal.

Arms Race: Wood Elves


My project for this summer, which I am dubbing the Arms Race, is for me to collect and paint 2000 points worth of Wood Elves. I've never really gotten to grips with Fantasy Battle, but upon seeing the new Treeman, I felt that it was time to put the Dark Elves to one side and start with a clean slate.

It's been a while hasn't it?



I'm fully aware that I have neglected this blog for near 2 months now. It only seems yesterday that I was looking at it thinking 'Wow, I've not put anything up for a month!'. Sadly, that was all down to a mix of a high amount of work, and hitting a point of low motivation to painting where I really couldn't focus on one project for any amount of time. However, I have finished a few of my older projects and am going to show them today.
