Darrakar Guardian of Souls

Last night, I had some time to add the finishing touches to Darrakar.  Like most Nighthaunt,  painting him went pretty quick.

What's on my table:

This weekend, the hobby butterfly hit again. I started a few projects but finished none of them. Lets take a look.

Tau ethereal

As I talked about before, I completed work on a Tau Ethereal after finishing the Ghostkeel.  Like the Ghostkeel, I have had this model for a while and I am just now getting around to it.

Tau Ghostkeel

This Weekend, I felt I needed a change.  It has been Orks and Genestealer Cult for a while so I broke down and brought out my Ghostkeel to paint.

GSC impressions

I finally got a chance to play the new Genestealer Cult.  They played well and I think with a little practice they could be a force to reckoned with.  While I might be a bit late, here are a few first impressions.

Some Genestealer Cult models Nearing Completion

I haven't had a lot of hobby time this past few weeks.  I did get time enough to finish a jackal though.  I have also started on several other Jackals and Genestealer Cult units.

Nighthaunt Chainrasps

I had a busy weekend so I didn't get much finished.  I was able to finish the Chainrasps though as well as do some detail work on a Glaivewraith Stalker.

On My Table 4/10/18

I haven't done one of these in a long time. With Adepticon, life and a new Switch taking a lot of my free time I have not had a lot of time to work on stuff.  I finally have stuff I am working on. Let's take a look.

Tuesday, April 9, 2019


As usual, I have fluttered over to another project before finishing the one I started.  This time I decided to paint up some Chainrasps.

Atalan Jackal

I finally finished my last Jackal this weekend.  I still have the wolfquad to paint but that is an addon and almost a separate group.  This gives me a finished squad of four which can be legally fielded.

Friday, April 5, 2019

Looking ahead

With Adepticon in the books, Shorehammer just opened registration.  I am planning to play in the Age of Sigmar(AoS) tournament as well as the 40k Highlander.  This opens the question: what armies am I going to bring?

Sister test model

If you follow me on Facebook, Twitter, or in the TWL text group you have already seen my test model for the sisters of battle.  It is one of the new Geminea sisters for Celestine that was released a while ago. With her done, I have a scheme that I can use when the new sisters come out.  My good friend has donated a squad to help get me started, I hope he doesn't regret it.

Dakka Dakka Mooooo!

Whew! What a weekend!  Adepticon 2019 is in the books and it was a hoot! I got to play some games,  see some "famous" people, and got to see a bunch of vendors.  I had a great time and I will tell you all about it.

Tuesday, March 26, 2019

Sooo Close

Adepticon is only days away.  As I have mentioned I am meeting up with Dave from the Tabor Warhammer League in DC to play in the Long War Doubles Tournament.  As the day approaches I thought I would set my expectations for the con.

Monday, March 25, 2019

Almost there!!!

Adepticon preparation continues this busy weekend. With 2 movies, a Blues game, and a comedy show, I somehow found some time to completely finish my Orks army for this week.  On top of that I did some work on some done on some Chainrasps and my last built Jackal.

Three Day Adepticon Industrial Display Board Challenge

Howdy all,

I managed to get some Thursday evening gaming in at the local Damascus Powerfisters this last weekend and ran into a club friend - Dave. He knows my limits on spending this year, and offered a trade - The Chaos side of Shadowspear for a display board.

A sneak peak!

Objective Markers for Vostroyan Army

So I've painted some more! I've always wanted my armies to have a specific set of objective markers, and the Vostroyan Casualties provide a great opportunity to actually get started on them.

Vostroyan Test Model for New Army!

New Year, New Army?

Here's a test model for my next Guard detachment - Really loving the look of these guys, would love feedback from you all!

WIP: Geminae Superia

With under two weeks to finish up my ork army, this weekend I spent time assembling and painting one of the Geminae Superia.  The hobby butterfly strikes again.

Multiverse Gaming Scenery Review - Forges of Prometheus

Howdy all! I recently picked up some scenery from Multiverse Gaming Terrain so that I could fill out the scenery on the desert industrial board. Here's my write up of the experience.

Working on my Adepticon list

After working on the Jackals this weekend, I decided to switch gears and lay out all the Orks I need to finish before I leave for Adepticon.  I only have a 1000 point list to worry about but there are a few problems.

Finished 3rd Jackal

This weekend I finished up another Jackal so I thought I would post a few images.

Tuesday, March 5, 2019

Sneaky Gits

I didn't see this from Games Workshop but yesterday, Frontline Gaming sent me a email with a preorder for the Shokkjump Dragsta.

Hurray I can get my third buggy legit and not have to buy another speed freeks box. Thanks Games Workshop!

Another Jackal finished

This was a pretty calm weekend.  I did get a little painting in and finished one Atalan Jackal.

Thursday, February 28, 2019

Genestealer Cult Magus

Last night I had some time to finish the new Magus model for my Genestealer Cult.  The model doesn't have any new, fancy rules over the old magus but this will give me a second magus painted and she is ready to lead her troops.

Tuesday, February 26, 2019

Odds and Ends

This weekend I have had little motivation to paint so I decided to start the great ork rebasing project as well as some other odds and ends.

Friday, February 22, 2019

Metamorph and Atalan update

Earlier this week, I showed the work I have done on a Metamorph and a Atalan Jackal.  Last night I got a little more work done.

Wednesday, February 20, 2019

Painting While Traveling

While on the road, the past week I decided to try and take some brushes and paint and get a little painting done while I travel.  While I didn't get a lot done, I did manage to get some paint down on a couple of models.

Tuesday, February 19, 2019

On the Road

I am back!  Sorry for the blackout but I was traveling last week and did not upload any content. I went to DC to meet up with The Tabor Warhammer League as well as Pimpcon and his gaming group for their annual battle.

Using the Genestealer Cult Codex as a Chaos Cults Codex

Turning the Xenos menace into a Chaos Menace, eh?
They're ready to lead the Wisdom Hunters to the promised land.

As you've seen, Grendal is busy showing off his newly finished, well, Genestealer Cult everythings. I picked up my copy of the code today, intending to use it with my Renegades and Heretics army.  I know some purists are very angry/loud about demanding a new Lost and Damned Codex, or getting the Renegades & Heretics list updated (both of which I approve), but what's a nascent tyrant-in-the-making to use in the meantime? Obviously, the newly released Genestealer Cult Codex.

With just a few counts as models and some loving conversions, you can make this list into a Chaos-based cult, rather than a Xenos based one. It's a bit of a text heavy post, so sorry in advance.

Final Aberrant

With the finishing touches added early this morning, I completed my goal of have the Aberrants done before the new models get released.

Wednesday, February 6, 2019

Another one down...

I found some time last night to finish up another Aberrant.  I only have one left before my self imposed deadline.

Tuesday, February 5, 2019

Finally Back to Aberrants

Now that the Nighthaunt that were on my workbench are done I am swinging back to the Genestealer Cult.  On my quest to have all my Aberrants done before the new models come out, I bore down and was able to finish one of the three remaining Aberrants.

More Glaivewraith Stalkers

This weekend I found some time to finish the squad of Glaivewraith Stalkers for my Nighthaunt army. 

Thursday, January 31, 2019

Glaivewraith Stalker

I was able to find the time to finish up one of my Glaivewraith Stalkers.  I am close with another two so maybe early this weekend I will have them done. 

Tuesday, January 29, 2019

Mourngul finished

This weekend, I continued to work on my Mourngul for Age of Sigmar.  If you don't count basing, he is complete.

Thursday, January 24, 2019

What's on My table?

So I have gearing up and painting my Genestealer Cult (GSC) this past week, getting ready for the codex release.  SO when I found a hour or two to work on some models you would think I would start painting another aberrant.  Not this hobby butterfly,  I started work on the Mourngul!

Wednesday, January 23, 2019

Aberrant and Hypermorph

With the Primus finished, I thought I would move on to working on my aberrants. I got these last year in the Tooth and Claw boxset and with the release coming soon I want to make sure they are ready.

Tuesday, January 22, 2019

Genestealer Cult Primus

With the preview of the Biophagus, the release date for Genestealer Cult (GSC) should be coming really soon. With that in mind, I decided that my next few projects will be to finish painting the few GSC models I have left. I decided to star with the Primus.

Wednesday, January 16, 2019

Second ShokkJump Dragsta

I also finished painting my second Shokkjump Dragsta. I have been working on this for a few weeks now and I finally was motivated to finish it off.

Tuesday, January 15, 2019

New Old Warboss

After finishing my boys, I decided to repaint an old metal warboss that has been around almost as long as the custom big shoota boy that was in my last post.

Monday, January 14, 2019

More Ork Boys

This weekend started with me finishing off some Ork Boys with big shootas.  With these last four boys I have all of my boys painted.  There is still a quite a few models to work on for the Orks but the boys are done.

New Genestealers

This weekend GW had an Open Day where they had new models on display as well as some glimpses into the future.  One of those glimpses was a few sneak peaks of the upcomming genestealer release.

Saturday, January 5, 2019

Ork Boys

I have not forgotten about 40k. While I do want to paint up the nighthaunt, I still prefer 40k to Age of Sigmar.  My backlog is still filled with orks, ad mech, primaris and of course the incoming genestealer cult.  With this is mind I finished up a couple of boys and even rebased them to the new 32mm bases.

Blockade's Goals for the New Year

Howdy all! After a pretty successful last year, I've got some new goals for next year.

 I've kept it to three simplistic things. Paint, Finish, and No Buying!

Reikenor the Grimhailer

Continuing my work on the new army, I picked up Reikenor the Grimhailer to be one of my leaders.  My FLGS was having a "buy one get, one half off" sale and while I was picking up my chapter approved I decided to get half off Reikenor.

Nighthaunt test model

New year means new army.  In the dying embers of 2018 I decided to take the plunge into a second Age of Sigmar army. After many debates with myself I chose the nighthaunt.
