Toowoomba, Australia

It has been quite some time (years) since I have posted much of anything outside the DCM forums and would like to share the shenanigans of what I am up to for modelling, painting and terraining.

What will follow will be an ecclectic mix of whatever I am up to at the time but as with all these blogs, I hope it will motivate me to get more done.

Unless overly excited I will likely be posting only finished models or units as I complete them.

First off my gaming/painting room.

Time for another clean up...





Normally I do my work at the old kitchen table but the small table is being used currently so I can paint in the media room at night and watch Game Of Thrones from the start in the lead up to the new season. About to start season 1 episode 5 tonight.

It will be interesting to see what you are working on.
Having a dedicated space is great for the spurring on to get stuff done I find, don’t you think?

Next up are some of my models rebased from WHFB Orcs and Goblins to AOS Destruction.

6mm cork mountings, bought in sheets from my local hardware store. 1 pack of 6 sheets for $8US and a sheet can do about 200 of the 25mm bases shown below.

Did the bases up in batches of 30 for the first lot then satin varnished. Pinned the transferred models after I touched up any bits that needed redo and light Matt varnish over the lot to remove the satin effect on the base.



Only about 400 models to go from the army....

Bought in a comic store in NYC back in 2007 for $15US then spent close to $200 to frame it. I loved the x-men comics as a teen when I collected them and it is a wonderful picture.
It is the black and white of this...

And now we move into 54mm Inquisitor from the early 2000s.

I have a heap of models that I have collected over the years and the first (Non-GW) one is a 2 headed beast from the Helldorado range
The piece of flesh is toilet paper, folded, soaked in PVA glue and then painted over red with blood for the blood god last.







Next month I hope to get the chos magus painted. He is already assembled, ready for undercoat.

I spent the last 2 days chopping and gluing high density mattress foam to transport models in my battlefoam bags. So not much work done. Pics will come later in the week when all is dried.

March goals are to rebase AOS models, paint the chaos magus (already underway) a necromunda model, the above mentioned foam which is essentially done, and finish my last few zone mortalis terrain pieces. I was going to try and do the trollkin sea king but there is likely 30 hours in just painting it.

Anyway, here is the next batch of night goblins on new bases.


Now I’m off to drink beer and watch series 3 Game Of Thrones episodes on my projector as I go through the whole show in the lead up to the finale season, add sand to bases, paint the magus and Eyros Slagmyst, Necromunda bounty hunter.
Truely an amazing time in my hobbling life.

Back to Trollkin this week and Grim Angus, warlock for the Trollblood faction.

Have been playing him with a sea king and hearthgut hooch hauler and 2 war wagons and having a blast.

Good luck in the tournament, you had me reading up on those shooty Troll units, seems like a good time I am curious what the rest of your list is, although I did some scheming and feel like I got pretty close

Grim 1
Rune bearer
Sea king
X2 war wagons
Hooch hauler
Minimum unit pig lookouts (absolute star of the list)
Trollkin thumper
Minimum stone unit with attached stone scribe elder
Bog trog mist speaker


Automatically Appended Next Post:
And here is the unit of pyg lookouts.
In over 10 games they have never failed to get their points back, absolutely fantastic unit.

I am in one of the 2 Queensland State teams in the Warmachine Oceania Team Championships in May and found out yesterday it is fully painted so trolls it is for painting for the next few weeks. Last night I started the Sea King and painted his skin and some of the coral. Long way to go though....

Ah, I remember seeing that Inquisitor Chaos model in a White Dwarf back in the day.. You've done a great job on him! I'm also digging those Warmahordes models, Grim Angus looks like a cool post-apocalyptic character (I've no knowledge about Warmahordes..) and that Lookout with the snowman camo gave me a chuckle!

If I were to give critique, some of your models seem a bit glossy and could benefit from a coat of matt varnish. Could just be the lighting, of course..

Twist! Or maybe shows that I don't know what those do (I assumed a second free thumper instead of the attachment and that new, less-good artillery piece for themey laughs)

Looking forward to the sea king!
