Rise up you dead, slain of the hydra

I reckon it was Jason and the Argonauts that first made me realise skeletons were cool.

KoW Billy's Super Sounds of the seventies

Just got back from the Warlords: Kings of War Super Series 'Spring' Tournament which was a good day out.

I used to be a werewolf but I'm alright noooooow!

The trouble with this hobby is that sometimes, its just work. Yeah I know that anything worth doing is never easy but I just wasn't feeling it with these Werewolves.

Stealth Mawloc

Well there it is.  Stealth Mawloc is nigh on invulnerable because you can't see him.  He isn't even on the table.  This ultimate stealth bomber appears randomly, drops two blast templates and then mishaps off the board or back into reserves. GG.

Toy Story (WIP)

Inspired by Westrider's 'Cowering in Terror' post over on Cascadian Grimdark I decided to use the idea for a Lictor model that I haven't gotten round to building yet.  I've depicted various marines, guardsmen and Necrons on my nid bases in the past.  Usually in various stages of imminent death, incontinence and decollation.

I was impressed with Westrider's cowardly guardsman.

On Hallowed Ground

Just as thousands of wanderers have journeyed before me, I finally made the pilgrimage half way round the world to Warhammer World in Nottingham, England.

Nothing much to report

Interesting how my Nid style has subtly changed over the years (or maybe the paints have faded?).  Left Hive Guard is newly painted.  The one on the right is about 3 years old.

Don't Fear the Reaper

 "Armed with a bewildering array of wicked looking limbs, claws and scythes, Reapers stalk the dreams of those who abhor wanton violence, torture or pain, hell-bent on delivering their worst fears"

Rambling Battle Report

They say that its better to be lucky than good and this is very true for Wargames I reckon.

Portal of Despair - WIP

A work colleague (Rob, you know who you are) recently noted that I was a filthy heretic and had started collecting Mantic idols instead of sanctified relics with the seal of The Holy Emperor (i.e. Games Workshop, or is it Citadel?).

More laziness and a complete lack of hobbying for a while, but I've been through rather an abrupt career change in the last few weeks.  

Sunday 20 March 2016


I suppose this could be interpreted as my first attempt at multibasing, but not really.

Trolling the depths

I bought a regiment of Zombie Trolls as part of my Mantic bender and I love them.  But then I had horrible visions of the buggers being obliterated in a first turn hail of arrows.

Instant Army (just add Tyranids)

I started several projects all at once this week, none of which I finished.  I did manage to repaint 3 Genestealers in my latest hivefleet colours. A fairly random thing to do, given that I'm playing Kings of War at the moment and I haven't used Genestealers in a game since, well, I can't remember exactly when.

First I would like to announce that I just achieved my highest ever tournament placing (cue trumpet flourish):  6th Place!

"Roland looked up and saw exactly what he expected: clouds in a line.. This was the true world, the one where no roll of the dice could ever be taken back, the one closest to the Dark Tower.  And they were still on the Path of the Beam." - Song of Susannah, Stephen King

28 Days Later

Well, strictly speaking 54 days since my last blog post but they didn't make a zombie film called 54 days later and I'm being topical.
