Welcome to 2022

 Well thats done and dusted so its time to look up and forward for a better year!

I failed in my goal of some South American gaming, to many other projects that got in the way sadly... i will come back to hit at some point hehe.

I painted 991 models this last year, ranging from AoS nurgle to warmaster beastmen to Baratheons for ASOIAF, quite an enjoyable mix if i do say so myself... only 81 blog posts for the year tho, thats not great as ive struggled to get a lot of computer time around home life recently.

This year im going to be starting Pike and Shotte with a few of the guys so a Montrose army will be gracing the pages of the blog in short order hehe... just waiting on 120 bonnet hats to arrive from warlord then i can get cracking!

Thats going to be my aim this year, fully painted for Pike n Shotte!

A Song of Ice and Fire: Queens Men and Zorse Riders!

 Time flies when your having fun haha, really struggled to get time to access a computer after our main one died and my eldest is glued to his laptop playing football manager!

Last models painted for 2021, taking me to 991 for the year whoop!!

A Song of Ice and Fire: Baratheon King's Men

 Next unit for the on going Baratheon Project are the King's Men:

Amazing models but not the most useful in the game... A sad trend with most of the Loyalty units in the Baratheon army. Its hoped they will get better in the upcoming errata to the game.

A Song of Ice and Fire: R'Hllor Lightbringers

A Song of Ice and Fire: Baratheon Royal Family

 Time of the true Royal Family of Westeros hehe:

Devan Seaworth and Andrew Estermont

Stannis the One True King and Selyse & Shireen

That's all the proper heroes completed, just a few unit attachments to go on that front, now back to the units!

A Song of Ice and Fire: The man who would be King!

Time for the older Baratheon brother with Stannis the Rightful Heir, Melisandre the Red Woman and some Red Priestess's to add to the army:

Im completing the Stannis side heroes next then its back to the units!

A Song of Ice and Fire: Champions of the Stag with Aid

 Next up for the ongoing Baratheon project:

Champions of the Stag

Davos Seaworth

Axell Florent

The in-faction heavy cavalry foe Baratheon's along with a couple of the Stannis Loyalty Heroes to keep me going!

Sunday, 31 October 2021

A Song of Ice and Fire: Renly Baratheon and Friends!

 Here's the rest of the Baratheon Heroes 2 Box completed:

Renly Baratheon, Renly Lord Paramount (Garland Tyrell) and Loras Tyrell

Brienne the Blue, Oleana Tyrell and Margaery Tyrell

Painting the individual characters is certainly a welcome break from the slog of the units, but i have the Champions of Stag and a few Stannis heroes to complete ahead of a tournament at Board in Br at the end of the month!

A Song of Ice and Fire: Stag Knights!

 Its taken a while but here is my unit of Stag Knights completed:

A proper fighty unit for the Baratheons; not as well armoured as the wardens but still able to tank with the Stags resilience order... With Eldon Estermont they become a nightmare to shift hehe.

Thursday, 21 October 2021

A Song of Ice and Fire: Wardens and Sentinels

 Another couple of units for my Baratheons with Wardens and Sentinels completed:

Two wins and a lose at the event; beat Greyjoys and Baratheons but lost to Lannisters... great fun though!

A Song of Ice and Fire: Baratheon Fury!

 Over the last week or so ive been working on the beginnings of my next army for ASOIAF; Baratheons!

Im planning on using them at our club tournament on the weekend but circumstances have conspired that i wont be fully painted for it d'oh!

These are what ive completed so far:

Baratheon Wardens

Alester Florent

Pikemen Captain

Thornwatch Sentinel, Shyra Errol & Courtney Penrose

Eldon Estermont

 Ive begun with the unaligned units but im concentrating on the Renly Loyalist characters as that's the path ive chosen for my army to begin with.

40K: Tzaangors!

 Whilst waiting for some other bits to dry in the spraying process i decided to smash out some of the Tzaangors i have in my Thousand Sons:

I do not have the time or patience to paint up 31 Tzaangors as detailed as i would like so have chosen to take the cheaters path and just do them all as psychic projects and all etheral haha.

A Song of Ice and Fire: wicked Clowns!!!

 Finally have the last of my Neutrals finished!

Bloody Mummer Skirmishers

Stomcrow Lieutenant

Now to start my Baratheons haha

Tuesday, 21 September 2021

A Song of Ice and Fire: Moar Hedge Knights!

 Two more units of Hedge Knights for my Neutral forces hehe:

That finishes off the cavalry wing to my army, and i just have a unit of Bloody Mummer Skirmishers to do and my forces are fully painted till the Golden Company stuff arrives in the new year.

A Song of Ice and Fire: Hedge Knights!

 Another unit for my Neutrals with these new Hedge Knights!

I was a bit of a mad lad and bought three(!) units of these for a triple heavy cavalry list haha, will be giving it a run out tomorrow; hopefully it does the trick!

A Song of Ice and Fire: Stormcrow Mercenaries

 After what seems like an age I have some new additions to my Neutral Faction army for ASOIAF with these Stormcrow Mercenaries:

The game has kicked off big time in my local area with us having gone from two to 8 players in the last few months hehe, and the Bunker running its first event next month. I dallied with the Targaryen's for a bit but decided to stick with what I know and expand on my Neutrals / Bolton's instead.

40k: Thousand Sons Terminator Sorcerer

 Another quick(ish) addition to the force today with a Terminator Sorcerer:

Luckily for me neither these or power armoured sorcerers take up a valuable HQ slot, which enables me to take quite a few powerful psykers in just the one battalion detachment.

Lord of the Rings: Scouring of the Shire pt9

 So nine months later I have the last few models for the Scouring of the Shire painted up!

Gaffer Gamgee and Rosie Cotton

Folco Boffin and Farmer Cotton

40k: Exalted Sorcerer Conversion

 Here is the warlord for my Blades of Magnus army:

Rather than buy the whole Exalted Sorcerers box I decided to convert my own from the 2nd Infernal Master I had when I picked up a cheap Hexfire half off a guy at the club and put him on Ahriman's disc as I had decided against that option to begin with.

A few tweaks like a head swap, hand swap and changing the top of the staff and I was set!

He-Man Miniatures Games: Clamp Champ and Company!

 Another round of updates for this ongoing project:

Clamp Champ and Eternos Captain

Eternos Guard Skysleds

Glimmer and Katra

Really good to be back painting these again, hopefully more will come along again soon!

40k: Scarab Occult Terminators

Been painting these on and off for the last couple of weeks, its been a bit of a grind but im glad they are done and really happy with them:

They constitute a massive part of my planned list at over 400pts for the unit in a 1500pt list haha, but they are really cool and should do great things!

Monday, 23 August 2021

40K: Ahriman, Arch Sorcerer of Tzeentch

Next up for these is Ahriman, creator of the Rubric which caused the non psyker marines in the legion to be come but dust in their armour… halting the slide into mutation but at a great cost!

I decided I didn't want him on the disc as that role will be taken by an Exalted Sorcerer in the very near future hehe.

40k: All is Dust: Thousand Sons Rubric Marines

Well well well, all it took was a shiny new book about the Egyptian space wizards and im back in the game whoop!

Something about this book looks to scratch an itch i never knew I had; small faction, bit unique, decent paint scheme, not too expensive.

I picked up the start collecting box and have a couple of TSons halves of the Hexfire box to get me going to begin... then I think I'll need some vehicles for some long range guns hehe.

First up for the force are a squad of Rubric Marines! e gone for the Blades of Magnus scheme with the main legion colours reversed for something a bit different.

Ahriman will be next up!

He-Man Miniatures Game: Scorpia!

 Next up for the project is a new villain for the Evil Horde hehe:

Not long now till the Gamefound campaign for the boardgame whoop!

Age of Sigmar: Slaanesh Twinsouls!

 Got back from the family holiday and smashed straight on with these:

With the change to 3rd ed the debate between Painbringers and Twinsouls has opened up again and ive settled on Twinsouls being better as their damage output is significantly higher!

Age of Sigmar: Orghotts Daemonspew

 One final addition to my Nurgle forces with one of the Maggoth lords:

Orghotts Daemonspew is the leader type one of the three Maggoth Lords: he's not particularly good at fighting but he does have a decent command ability with reroll wounds! Crucially as well he is cheap at 220pts, has a base 3+ save with 12 wounds and as a hero monster he has full access to heroic actions and monstrous actions.

Hes also fast enough to keep up with stuff like Blightlords or a Corruptor for some balance tipping rerolls with his being a hero phase comman ability so it can stack with all out attack or defence etc.

Age of Sigmar: Varanguard!

 Time for some actual staying power in my Slaanesh army with a unit of three Varanguard!

I nearly have enough of a force painted for these now whoop! Am looking forward to getting some table time with them now!
