With only a few hours left in the year, my final post will be my Thorns of the Briar Queen.

The Briar Queen and Her Thorns

I have been working off pledges from my Kanban board for 2019.  With all of those projects staring me down I turned my back on all of those projects and started working on the Briar Queen and her Thorns.

A New Year, A New Army

2019 is wrapping up quickly.  While we still have a couple of weeks left, I thought I would reveal my plans for the new year.

Clearing off the table

It has been a busy couple of weeks.  I have had a bit of hobby time but I have not had the time to put the photos up to the blog or time to write a blog.  With that said,  here are a few of the things I have been working on.

Geminae Superia

After the Daedalosus was done, I checked my list for other models that could be completed before the new year.  I found that I still had a Geminae Superia to finish for this year.  Time to break out the yellow glaze.

Thursday, December 5, 2019


With my 2019 reflection in the books I thought I would work on a few of my outstanding pledges for the year.  The first of these is my Daedalosus.

Resolution check in

With the year winding down and Thanksgiving behind us, I figured it was about the right time to look back and reflect on what I promised, what I did, and what I didn't do. Lets take a look.

Shorehammer 2019

Shorehammer has come and gone and after getting a few nice nights of rest, I decided to  write up a quick blog on my experience.

Monday, November 18, 2019

Final countdown

We have entered the final three days before leaving for Shorehammer.  I am really excited.  I get to see some friends I have not seen in months as well as play a guaranteed six games.  That is probably more than the last three months put together. Before I go, I still have a laundry list of things that need to get done.

Saint Celestine

After finishing up my space marines I decided to switch to a model that has been sitting on my bench for a while: The Living Saint herself, Celestine.

Primaris Intercessors

This weekend, I wanted to work on some projects I have started on and not finished. I started working on some Intercessors and wanted to finish them before moving on to other tasks.

Megatrakk Scrapjet

With Shorehammer looming in the future, I needed to get my last model, the Megatrakk Scrapjet, painted.

Scrapjet VS Drasta

I was looking at my list for the Shorehammer Highlander coming in less that 19 days and felt that it was missing a little more umph!  I usually run a squad of two shokkjump dragstas (only because I don't have 3) in my ork armies for a bit of anti-tank shooting.  Seeing this is the highlander, I needed to look for another way to do this.  In comes the Megatrak Scrapjet.

My GSC army

With all the talk about finishing my GSC army for Shorehammer, I thought I would show off what is painted. It is not one of those 25,000 point monstrosities that you see on Reddit all the time but it is not bad for being a secondary army that I just started two years ago.

GSC Wolfquad

Taking a break from building my Deff Dread I decided to paint up the two quad bikes I had left for my GSC.

Black Templar Army on Parade

My Black Templar army is mostly finished, but I wanted to show off the army on parade board I've built for it!

Vostroyan Platoon Finished!

The boys in purple and white are done. Thanks contrast paints!

After using contrast White, Black, Brown and purple, I was able to blow through the hardest parts of the Vostroyan platoon. So. Much. Gold. Armor. Here's some final shots. (also, be prepared for several posts on different updates! It's been a while since I posted.

GSC Acolytes

Ok,  now that Dreadtober is on the way I can get back to GSC.  Today I have five acolytes with heavy rock saws.

Wednesday, October 2, 2019


*Sigh* Just one day after I went back to the GSC I am pumping the brakes.  I almost forgot what time it is.  Today is Oct 2 and I am already late for my Dreadtober entry.

Neophyte Hybrids

Now that The Battle for the Books is over I can switch back to getting my GSC ready for Shorehammer. To get me back on the wagon I thought I would paint up my remaining Neophytes.

Battle for the Books

So, in my last post I talked about The Battle for the Books tournament last weekend.  Today I want to go over my thoughts and review what I remember from the games I played. Warning this is a long post.

Grots and things!

Hey everybody, sorry it has been a while since I have posted an update.  If you follow me on Facebook, you would have seen some picture of what I have been working on but with work being a busy as it is, I have not had time to type up actual blog post.  Well, I found some time so, here is an update on what I have been working on...

Black Templar Display Board WIP

Hi all! Long time no see! Summer is winding down, so naturally I'm racing to finish more than necessary.  With both Armies on Parade and Shorehammer coming up, I wanted to create a display board. Earlier this year, I completed a display board in a three day period for my friend. I did not hit that goal this time.

Black Templar Crusader Squad Finished

Hi All - The Summer Painting Challenge Continues.

I'm at the point where I'm trying not to say "I'm running out of things to paint" - Except that I am running out of 'priority' things to paint. I'm still got plenty of miniatures that need paint, but the vast majority are simply bringing tabletop quality models up to my 'best' quality models with highlight and washes. Many of these were painted when I was in my teens or college years, when It was literally spraypaint black, paint brown boots, metal gun, blue-grey armor for all my guard models. I also just finished practicing 'upgrading' one of these old Arcadian 4th (My custom guard regiment) models, and he doesn't look to shabby.

Anywho, here's the challenge update.

To finish...

  • Black Templar Phobus Armor LT (1 model - received and built)
  • Two Squads of Ten Vostroyan Guard including heavy weapon bases.
  • Four man command squad (Flamer, Medic, Comms and Grenade Launcher)
  • Three Vostroyan Snipers (just picked one up - now I have a special weapons squad!)
  • Eleven Black Templar Crusaders
  • Black Templar Apothecary
  • 2 Alpha Legion Obliterators
  • Alpha Legion Master of Possession
  • Alpha Legion Sorcerer 
  • Five Plague Ogryns (or Aberrants) 
Finished - 83 miniatures
Unfinished - 30ish

At this rate I'll have hit 100 by the end of July IF I can get started on these damn Vostroyans. Still trying to decide if I want to do the constrast paint on them for purple (but I'm unsure if it will match my other paint style) or just my normal purple, wash and highlight on the cloth.

Oh, and did I mention I'm looking at getting a custom platoon from Anvil Industries to match the Vostroyans and add some heft without breaking the bank too bad? Yea....gonna have to wait on that.

Blockade out.

More work on the Cabal

I had some more time to work on my warband.  This time I painted up two Cabalist and the second Spire Stalker. I am now two thirds of the way done with my warband.

The Bazaar 2019

Every August Fantasy Books and Games has their annual Bazaar where we can bring in items and they will sell them in a consignment like transaction. The catch is, instead of getting a cut they give you store credit.  It is a cool deal and you can find some real bargains.  Here is what I got this year.

THe Hobby Butterfly Strikes Again

With every intention to paint up some acolytes this weekend, I ended up painting up a new warband for the new Warcry game.  I knew when the GW previewed the Corvus Cabal that if the game looks even remotely fun I would be getting these models.  After watching a few battle reports I was hooked.

DJ Clamavus

I thought I would get back to my Genestealer Cult and decided to paint my Clamavus model.

Sister Superior Amalia Novena

Moar Shorehammer talk.

Last time I talked about Shorehammer, I was on the fence on which army I wanted  take. Since then, I decided to go with the Genestealer Cult (GSC). They are a different type army and my friend has thrown the gauntlet down for our grudge match and he want to face the GSC.

After the Fulgurites were finished I decided to paint a model a good friend gave to me.  The great Marbo.

Fulgurite Electro-Priests

A week ago I had a post all planned out to show off two of my Fulgurite Electro-priests but I was having trouble with my phone and it didn't want to create a post.  So here we are a week later and I am working on my PC and I have all five of the priests ready for action.

Skorpius Dunerider

Now That my Super Secret Project is done I had time to work on other models. The first one I wanted to get to was the new Skorpius Dunerider.

I have been a little quiet on the blog lately.  I am sorry.  I was working on a present for a friend and didn’t want to spoil the surprise.  Now that the package is delivered I can show you what I have been working on.

Summer Painting Progress Continues! Alpha Legion & Renegades

I'm continuing to work on my summer painting challenge. Today I finished a big chunk of the alpha legion remnants and the plague ogryns / remaining aberrants. I keep having this problem of adding models to the painting que that aren't on the actual to be painted list (like the aberrants), meaning that while my painted numbers go up, my unpainted numbers only decrease slowly.
