X-wing re-paints, the imperials!

tie-fighter-repaint

Paul only went and got me a little bit excited for re-painting X-wing models, something I’d considered and then put off for fear of bodging it up. These were done a little while back but I’ve only just remembered I needed to post about them! He started with his scum & villainy and I was […]

More weekend progress

This weekend saw the delivery of the cheapest hobby supply I think I’ve ever bought. So I needed a broom head for my ponds so that I could steal a handful of bristles to use as reeds.. right? Right.. well.. £2, free postage, I bought a new 12″ broom head off of ebay. It probably […]

Quick tip: Basing swatches

If you’re like me, you’re an indecisive git when it comes to painting your bases and because you don’t want to try anything new (and risky on a freshly painted model!) you’ll just end up doing the same colours as usual.. sound about right? Yes? Well fear not, I have a solution! I’ve recently started […]

Hobby Week – just an idea? Any thoughts?…

I’d gotten started on my Malifaux Steamborg Executioner (nowadays called ‘Howard Langston’) previously and he needed finishing, and I’ve got a bunch of other bits and pieces beginning to build up on my imaginary desk. Time to […]

WAMP Kickstarter

The lovely chaps at WAMP have set up a Kickstarter project to fund the production of their own range of kolinsky sable brushes. It wasn’t until now that I realised the WAMP chaps are based in the UK… d’oh. So, have some relevant links… for starters, the kickstarter project.. the cheapest pledge is £20 (unless […]

Project: Necrons is go!

Finally received the last of my order from Exodus Wars yesterday, a bunch of Evil Robots Edenites! Specifically the models I’ll use for Lords and Pariahs. Incidentally, there was a bit of a mix up with the order and I received some extra stuff that I hadn’t ordered… emailed Tom and he told me there’d […]
