Sword-Wielding Bloodletter of Khorne





Mechanicum (building/painting)

Trying to stick an Inceptor to his flight stand...

... and failing.

It's all painted (well, Battle Ready, if you call that painted) and just needs sticking to the flight stand so I can take pics and post in the Dakka Painting Challenge.

1st tube of superglue was rock solid so now in the bin. Gorilla superglue gel was mostly solid but managed to scrape some out of the bottle, although that failed to stick. Probably heading to the bin in a minute.

About to open a new tube of superglue and try again...

Superglues start going "off" as soon as you open them. Tubes are single use for the most part. No more than a couple of days.


Humidity and atmospheric moisture are catalysts for the reaction that cures superglue (it's why 'blowing on it' accelerates the curing) and as soon as you open it, you introduce extra moisture into the bottle/tube.


I'm OVER 50 (and so far over everyone's BS, too).
Old enough to know better, young enough to not give a ****.

That is not dead which can eternal lie ...

... and yet, with strange aeons, even death may die.

Began my Hero Forge Raleas Effernetti model from my Angaran Chronicles series. Pretty happy with her, it didn't take me like three times to get her face right as it did with my Anargrin model (new paint mix, possibly?) I'm painting them up as I wish to use them for playtesting my Skirmish combat system soon. I was given a whole lot of terrain from a board game from an old workmate from years ago and I'm looking forward to playtesting it with it. It's sci-fi and my setting is Dark Fantasy/Diesel Punk but it's just proxying. Also, it might be dwarven buildings or whatever who were quite advanced technologically speaking before they were conquered and enslaved by humanity.

The Angaran Chronicles: Hamar Noir. After coming back from a dangerous mission which left his friend and partner, the werewolf: Emilia in a coma. Anargrin is sent on another mission: to hunt down a rogue vampire. A rogue vampire with no consistent modus operandi and who is exceedingly good at hiding its tracks. So much so even the veteran Anargrin is forced into desperate speculation. But worst of all: drive him into desperate measures. Measures which drives Anargrin to wonder; does the ends, justify the means?

Didn't get as much painting as I wanted done last week but I did manage to get this guy off my paint table. I really dislike painting horses but for some reason this guy came out waaaay easier then I remember. Which is good because I have to repaint the rest of my Pistolier unit as well as complete a unit for my Cities of Sigmar army.

Next up is a bunch of Wolf Riders I had base coated back in 2017 and am now going to finish.

Years ago I painted my space hulk (3rd edition)!marines in tan and gave them a wash to bring out the details. Past few days I have been using red contrast paint to upgrade them. They look much better in red and the contrast paint is making the work a lot less drudgery.
