I've been playing a lot of Shadespire lately with my Curseflingers and joined the local league.  I had the odd game with Sepulchral Guard and Thorns of the Briar Queen but the drunken bards suit my play style best.

Up-Chucking Monkeys

Drunken Sigmarines are ready to do battle!  To be honest I've played more games with these guys in the last 2 weeks than I have 40k in the last 2 months.

Shadespire revisited

I decided to re-paint my 'pink' Sepulchral Guard.  I wanted to make them more purple.

Dark Light

Falling to Chaos is really exciting and has put me in touch with my feminine side. I can go crazy with ideas and the Ruinous Powers always approve! 'Dollhouse' accessories, for example.  Who knew that they could be so interesting?

Fields of Blood - Day 2

The clocks went forward overnight in NZ on Sunday and I woke up late. 

Fields of Blood 2018 - Day 1

Fields of Blood was a 1750pt 40k tournament held this weekend over in Khandallah Town Hall, Wellington.

He doesn't look very ancient to me but then he's a Primaris Ancient which probably means he's about 27.

When the men on the chessboard get up and tell you where to go

Scouts are finally done! Man, that was a ball-acher.  I like the models so much that I couldn't allow myself to rush or cut corners so it was driving me nuts towards the end.

Deep Cover

Ok, it took an extra day but I finished it.  The lighting in the garage is terrible so I set up in the living room to see what it looked like really.

Going off-piste

Done no work on the Scouts since Tuesday.  I bought a Deep Cut Studios neoprene mat from Mighty Ape instead.

Primaris Scout Conversions

 This is my third attempt to add cheap troops to my Red Scorpions.  This time, they aren't that cheap but who's counting? (apart from the T.O.)

Carab Culln the Risen

I'm beginning to run out of ideas for basing my Scorpions.  There's only so many prostrated Genestealer poses you can do before it all starts to look a bit samey.  I resolved to do something a bit different this time and came up with the notion of 'Deep Fried Nids'.

Captain Precarius

A bit of a hiatus but shit just got real in my life and I haven't had much time for hobbying lately.

Maelstrom XI

Maelstrom XI hosted by Hagen Kerr from Quietly In the Background was this weekend.  I've listed my battles as well as lots of pictures below.  Results in the link.

Hardwired Hatred

I was drunk when I first converted a destroyer into a Canoptek Moth and it ended up a bit lopsided but I always liked it.

Cosmic Powers

Pewter is a surprisingly difficult colour to paint and you don't see many examples.

Easily Distracted

Along with 'erratic and inconsistent', I think the title of this blogpost was the most common summary on my school report as a teenager.

All Systems Nominal

 The defence platform from Forgeworld arrived with the sexy missile pods and my MadCatLite is up and running.

Standing on the shoulders of giants

I bought some Heresy era legionaries in Mk IV armour the other week.  I couldn't bring myself to finish a previous unit of tactical marines using the old starter kits and bits-box leftovers.  I kept staring at the squad with the firm intention of painting them but the internal muse kept refusing. "Nope.  Not going to paint. Don't like 'em".

Squaduary Complete

Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.  And sometimes it looks better in the morning.

Abort! Abort!

The test model wasn't a great success.  Or maybe it was, because I've decided to abort the planned colour scheme and do something else. 

Friday 2 February 2018


I signed up for Squaduary over on Stepping Between Games.  I decided to paint up my Sepulchral Guard for Shadespire.

Hentai Haruspex

I finished this several days ago but was distracted by an idea for some fan fiction.
