Dirty Harriet

Another reminder that I dislike painting gems, eyes, cloaks and fucking plasma coils.  This is why I never started a Dark Angels army.  Well, not since 1988 anyway.

This is the worst kind of heresy but I can't help it now.  I've crossed the Rubicon and there's no going back.

Aperture Science

I think I've made a Defiler or a Soul Grinder or some sort of daemon engine.  I didn't want to make a Defiler.  In fact I didn't even realise I'd done it until I glued the legs on.

I appear to have assembled my Creature Caster 'Queen of Ecstasy' model incorrectly.  To be fair, there were no instructions inside the box.

Maelstrom the Thirteenth

Maelstrom XIII was hosted at Cashmere Avenue School hall in Wellington over the weekend.  Yet another successful tournament run by Hagen Kerr

Oh frabjous day!  I said back in December that it would take me another 6 months to build the next Armiger and I was more or less right.

Devil in the detail

This took far longer than it should have done.  I'm going to put it right up there with new Guilliman model in terms of being a fiddly nightmare to paint.

Bring your daemons to work day

I actually read some alternative sci-fi this month rather than absently pleasuring myself with 40k bolter porn.

Squaduary Stretch Goals

 Batch painting is the pits.  Until you're done and then you're like, "Yeah baby, I'm a lean, mean painting machine!"

Squaduary - Week 2?

'Finally Finished'.  You see that expression all the time on forums and social media.

Echoes from the Warp

The warpstorm in my garage had abated; receding into the unreality from whence it came.  Like a storm swell which had run its course, the tides of the immaterium ebbed, leaving long forgotten detritus in their wake.

Inception level sidetracked

The trouble with plans is that they go awry.  I was already bored painting Skitarii and decided to change the recipe to make it more efficient.

I should just go all out and play Chaos really.  Several people have mentioned it. I wouldn't have to kitbash horns on my dudes; they come ready made.  But where's the fun in that?

Caving in to Contrast

 I'm a contrary git when you get right down to it.  I often have a perverse desire to do the opposite of what I'm told and sometimes cut my nose off just to spite my face.

"Heretek is the name given by the Adeptus Mechanicus to those Tech-priests who turn their backs on the teachings and strictures of the Cult Mechanicus in pursuit of usually dark and forbidden technologies linked to the Warp and the Ruinous Powers of Chaos" according to Google.

Counts as: Darth Maul

I returned from a family visit to the UK this week with my sons. This year produced a reasonable haul of plastic for Christmas, including 2 Lord Discordant kits.
