Forge World Launch event Mini

Painted at a Minotaur Chapter Siege master!

Oh the humanity!

I know some will lament that this chap inst being used as a HH model, but i thought it accentuated the fluffy idea that the Minos can get their hands on some rare shizz.

Its a nice model, though the bulk of the parts are a re-use form one of the praetorians..

I do still need to track down a model for Hamaath Kraatos to round out my Minotaurs.. ebay here I come…

Happy Halloween!

Had a nice evening last night with some friends playing Mansions of Madness complete with booze and candles.


It’s a cracking game, especially for this time of year, easy to play (if not to actually set up) and it has good replay ability. to my shame though I haven't painted my set yet. I really must do something about that. (a quick google of the aforementioned will show you lots of lovely examples)

We played story 3, which if you know it is the one with a lot of outside tiles and one of my favourite lovecrafitan creations the Mi-Go. (the minis come complete with brain-in-a-jar accessory, I nearly had the keeper win condition when I accidentally triggered a story event that killed the Blood relative before I’d driven him insane and it gave the Investigators chance to rally. to the point that they almost won!

The game ended in a fairly equitable draw, with the Mi-Go and the Investigators going home empty handed. or empty Jar-ed

that’s all for now. I’ve played some X wing which I’ll post about soon, and I made some asteroids and am working on some debris tokens. I need to do some research on pirate factions in the new EU for Star wars and cook up a paint scheme for some scum ships for the new Cannon, but that's also another post for another time :)

work has me flat out at the moment. up until half term I’d had two days without work since September 1st, and at present am working 60-70 hours weeks, Please don't ever let anyone tell you teachers have it easy. if they do, they aren't doing it right.

thanks for reading, I’m out!

Chapter Champion with classic “sword raised aloft” pose.. Mk 7 armour for this fellow. he must be quite young ;)

 DSC_9686 DSC_9687 DSC_9688 DSC_9689

Mk3 – Drawing sword.. lovely pose!


DSC_9691 DSC_9692 DSC_9693

a mix of mk7 and mk5 armour on this chap and an axe!


DSC_9694 DSC_9695 DSC_9696 DSC_9697

Banner bearer in mk 3…

Nice easy paint job on these, and a nice antidote to the challenge of the white scars as it paints well and they aren't on bikes, so they are fast to do in comparison.

Quite a mash of bits too, Sternguard, MK3 command, brass etch, ultramarines upgrade sprue..

I’ll get to the rank and file of these chaps soon, – two rhinos to paint to go with them as well!

Shas'O Vesu'r R'alai.. Painted!

I finished him a while back, but in the interests of scheduling content,(and letting his owner see him before he appears on the webs) I’m posting him today..

A wicked model, and the studio paint job doesn't do it justice..

DSC_9665 DSC_9666 DSC_9667 DSC_9668

Its a nice sculpt, I find myself more and more wanting fewer GW products and more FW ones.. and thats noting to do with armies or lists or rules and purely because of the quality of the models.

DSC_9669 DSC_9670 DSC_9671 DSC_9672

I mean look at these funky lil’ blacksun filter markerlight drones!

Mid-Week Post Hiatus

My new job is not leaving me much time to hobby at the moment, So You are likely to see the blog go to a single Sunday post per week for the forseeable – this is to make sure I don't have what happened last time, where I kept up two posts a week, and then had a few weeks of no content at all.

I may drop in some random mid-week posts, If I can find the time, but dont count on it guys!

White Scars Biker Melta Squad Finished!

I keep saying it, but man bikes take time to paint!

Some still as well in an attempt to better portray the colours.. though I think the video quality is improving!


The Sergeant is made using one of the white scars upgrade torsos, but with the sword replaces with a combi melta. Ive done that more than once, but will use the wicked curved swords on the command squad


I’, also using all my older plastic leftover armour marks that I wont be using with my Minotaurs; this fits for me as the white scars are an old and somewhat unruly legion, the mk 6 heads and torsos, along with the mk 5 heresey bodies fit well with the scars for me; its a bit of a shame all the biker legs are mk 7 but hey ho, we compromise!


There are also bits drawn from the BA and SW kits dotted throughout this build.. like the crested helm and the more ornate melta.


There you have them, more to follow.. but I need to push myself to get the balance right.. the Minotaurs are so much easier to paint!

A Half Million

Page views…



Sure, the blog has been active a while, but that’s still a fairly big number for people coming to look at little old me raving about my little plastic men. so thank you everyone, I do appreciate your readership and I hope this current slew of white scars, minotaurs and ravings is keeping you entertained!
