Not dead yet!

No, not at all, just burned out with 40k at the moment. I did manage to get 4000 points of Orks done for the game last month and after that I just crashed. I will upload the photos of the last few Ork items in due course, but everything is being packed up at the moment for the impending house move.

When I look back over the year I've just had, which was pretty awful for a number of reasons, I still managed to use the time to complete 6000pts worth of 40k - I think that's impressive! I started the year noodling about with several Blood Pact projects (Thudd Guns and Sabre Platforms) which I completed in the summer along with some more halftracks (about 500 points worth). In the Spring I built and painted 1500pts of Necrons for a tournament, and then in the autumn added that huge amount of Orks - hence the 6k.

I've been working on some items for other games that I will post up in the new year, along with my plans for which armies I intend to complete over the next 12 months (one will be my 13th Co. Space Wolves). I really want to be more structured in my approach to completing things in 2014 and I'm hoping some new dedicated hobby space will help!

Thanks for all the views in 2013, and lets hope I can make 2014 an even better read, Merry Christmas!

Who ya gonna call...Tankbustas

Well a poor WIP photo before I went away for a couple of days to see family before I start my new job:

The Tankhammers are pole charges, seems more appropriate for Blood Axes.


The 5th member of the Squad is the radio controlled demolition vehicle operator from Kromlech, and the vehicles his bomb squigs - photos of those when they have some paint on them.

Orkpocalypse Now!

I've finally completed my Ramshackle helicopter kit! Well a few days ago but the weather has been pants when I've been at home, so I've had to wait to get some acceptable lighting to take the photos.

Built as per the instructions, less the bombs and rockets for now, but with heads from Spellcrow and Kromlech on the crew and some additions of plastic rod etc to change the look of the engines.

'fawsends of 'em!!!

I've finally got around to getting my 'Nids under way as I really want them ready for the new codex. Since I'm knee deep in Orks for our big game in November I sent these over to Three Colours Minimum as Graham there had done a really nice scheme on his own army. I've gone with a similar style to his army, but with yellow and green instead of his blue and purple, but at his suggestion, I've gone with some purple claws to liven things up a bit more.

Here are the shots of the first batch of Hormagaunts he's finished, and a big gribbly beast too! I'll be completing the bases myself once I've decided what scheme to use for these guys. This is the first time I've paid to have an army painted, and I'm very happy with the results. If you fancy commissioning for from TCM, checkout the website:

Focus is a bit messed up on these two images, so just look at the different focal points and pretend it is one nice photo! ;)
