On making thematic bases

So a short while ago I crafted a custom flyer base for my first Storm Talon, It has taken me until now however to actually do something with it and while it is still wip I feel it has come far enough to warrant a little post about it!

Gah, its another post!

LOL look at me, I'm a regular web posting guy or something whatevs.

So with my energy reinvigorated by my recent dalliance into the dark angels, I decided its high time that the completely assembled Ultramarines army got another look in, So with that I started at the only logical place, one of the Storm Talons!

Hobby Zone Painting Station

Today the Postman delivered a flat pack from Poland allot quicker than i expected as well!

Recently in an attempt to reorganize the house and provide my wife with a proper space in which to complete her university study I gave up my semi man cave to facilitate this.  Truth be told i spent most of my painting time anyway with most of my stuff spawrled out on the dining table painting and talking with my wife in the evenings.   So in the end the desks and what not didnt get used allot anyway.

Saga - Review

This weekend I got my 1st two games of Saga and as I expected I'm hooked!

Now im not big on reviews but I have to say this game is engaging fun and while the combat system is simple the complexity is the battle boards.

The game is pretty straight forward - roll your saga dice - allocated dice to the board to complete actions - these can range from simple actions such as being able to activate different types of units to completing complex attacks or forcing your opponent into making challenging tactical choices.

Much ado about nothing

So lately I have done very little hobby, that is too say done nothing at all.

I didn't get the lighting right for this shot so the green doesn't have the right lustre
That is until recently, when I saw a picture on the white dwarf daily feed (yes I read it from time to time) of a wonderful Disciples of Caliban paint scheme (original post here) on some Dark Vengeance terminators which gripped me, Needless to say that I have started to replicate the work and now have my own Terminators to a table top equivalent, The plan is of course to bring them up to the same level of detail as the ones featured in the original picture but for now just putting paint to figure is enough.

Thats all for now, I shall endeavour to update as more work goes on, but for me I'm glad to be back into the hobby!

War of the Roses

So in my ever deepening obsession with the medieval period- even so far as to consider selling my grey knights army to fund some future projects- I stumbled across this fantastic battle report.  The forum is called lead adventure.

I leave the link here and few shots as well : Medieval Battle Royale III

Viking update - FLAGS!

So this weekend the wife got me out to furniture stores as we worked on updateing the lounge and dinning chairs- exhausting work but worthwhile and I'm looking forward a refresh after looking at the same stuff for the past decade.
