I'm baaaaack! (Introducing Levi)

The hiatus is over! Hurrah!

And I have even managed to finish my first Necromunda gang member - Levi of The Straight Edge Society.

Hopefully this poor lowly juve will give you an idea of the colour scheme for this gang.

Hiatus (rats!)

This blog will be on a hiatus for a little while - but in the meantime, have some rats!

Real life...

...has a way of getting in the way of the things we'd all rather be doing!

Still, this weekend (fingers crossed) will provide hobby time to start painting some Necromunda minis...

Sorry for the slow progress!

Finally! (Aka testing the photo capabilities)

A sneak peek of my sentinel for the Smethwick 19th - Der Vernichter.

I will today be undercoating the last of my prepped models (for now!) and then it'll be painting rather than polycement for a while!

Sounds like a plan...

This weekend I hope to put together my Sentinel for Inquisimunda.

This, when based and undercoated along with Squad Castiel, will pretty much be the end of me assembling and prepping miniatures for a while.

Which, therefore, leads to me painting stuff!

I hope to find time this weekend to take pictures and post up the few bits and pieces I've already painted. These will all be Mordheim, and are a couple of years old now (nothing painted since!) - so expect them to be fairly pants.

Anyway, bear with me and there should be some photos over the next few days to make this blog actually worth a look!

She cannae take any more cap'n!!

I was lucky enough to receive a voucher for Christmas for GW. After a few minutes browsing their site for inspiration for what to spend it on I came to the revelation that I didn't want any more models right now. Thinking of all the old school and kit-bashed gems I've already got collecting dust and patiently awaiting their paint jobs, I couldn't bring myself to add to the pile.

For once, it seems, I engaged my brain rather than my impulse-led heart!

I spent my voucher (and a little extra) on a can of Chaos Black and some new flesh tone layer paints. And you know what? I don't regret that decision one bit.

For all the wondrous technical wizardry and the ever-improving sculpt qualities, the modern stuff often lacks a little charm, a little quirkiness. It sometimes is a little *too* serious and grimdark.

Now, don't get me wrong, where a new model or kit is an absolute peach, I'm all for it (Nurgle Lord, Chaos Cultists, 40k scenery etc) - indeed you'll see newer stuff as I make headway into my various projects, but I've got so many incredible OOP models and other pieces I just couldn't justify dropping my money (voucher or real) on new stuff.

This isn't a rant against GW - I guess it's just realisation that I might finally have reached saturation point...

At least, for the time being... I've had one eye on Blood Bowl for a while! ;)

(Don't worry reader, the blog is only just starting! :) There might even be some pictures soon!)
