Back on the Tabletop

Ok, so a confession. I've been having some health issues which just totally rocked me off my blogging game. That said, since I'm a) not dead yet, and b) still alive, I figured I'd get back into the swing of things by posting up some of my recent Inq28/Blanchitsu inspired stuff. I'll do a more … Continue reading Back on the Tabletop

En Prayse of the Drye Brushe

This article is a response to a friend of mine's post in our local Warhammer Community page, here. I love drybrushing. It's a fantastic tool to quickly pick out texture on a miniature. Some, however, deride it as lazy. What utter crap. An army finished is always 100% better than an army unfinished. The trouble … Continue reading En Prayse of the Drye Brushe

Warhammer Underworlds – The Miniatures

Send help - I've been dragged kicking and screaming into the Mirrored City. Though Games Workshop bills Warhammer Underworlds (Shadespire and Nightvault) as the ultimate competitive miniatures game, what drew me in are the models. They're awesome packages of self-contained warbands that exude character and atmosphere. I've recently found myself drawn to painting up several … Continue reading Warhammer Underworlds – The Miniatures

The Exanimate

"Who, when they gave thee breath,  Failed to bequeath  The needful sinew stark as once,  The Baresark marrow to thy bones,  But left a legacy of ebbing veins,  Inconstant heat and nerveless reins,—  Amid the Muses, left thee deaf and dumb,  Amid the gladiators, halt and numb." -Terminus (excerpt), Ralph Waldo Emerson Here are the … Continue reading The Exanimate

Consolatio Mori – Shadespire Sepulchral Guard

In this post, I rediscover my love of the Inq28 and AoS28 artistic style, and begin to spend more time studying what makes the models so cool. Here are my first real, tentative steps into grimmer and darker universes. Here's my warband for Warhammer Underworlds - The Consolatio Mori. They're completely stock Shadespire models from … Continue reading Consolatio Mori – Shadespire Sepulchral Guard

Rogue Trader – the Gellerpox

A motley assortment empowered by the powers-that-be to explore or exploit the uncharted regions of the galaxy as they will, Rogue Traders are, to me, the ultimate expression of the adventure and creativity that can you can enjoy in this hobby. They're the best parts of conquistadors, militant missionaries, privateers and pirates, adventurers, and explorers. … Continue reading Rogue Trader – the Gellerpox

Robots, Dragons, and Daemons – Playing Warhammer Age of Sigmar and Warhammer 40,000 together

Intro Background Have you ever been curious what would happen if a Dwarf throng were to come face to face with an Eldar raiding force? A Company of Space Marines dropping in only to find itself surrounded by Dragons? What about an Empire Army marching north, expecting roving bands of marauders, only to come face … Continue reading Robots, Dragons, and Daemons – Playing Warhammer Age of Sigmar and Warhammer 40,000 together

What I’ve been working on this week

Just a quick post to show off my latest model - an Astraeus Super-Heavy Tank from Forgeworld. It should go nicely along with my Primaris Space Marines. Anthelius is an Astraeus-Super-Heavy Tank belonging to the Ultramarines Chapter. An example of latter-day Imperial design, it has taken part in many of the 4th Company's actions throughout … Continue reading What I’ve been working on this week

The Ceresia Campaign – a NOVA Open 40k Trios Team retrospective

"'Ollanius Persson, retired,' says the man. 'I'm trying to fight my way out of this shit hole. You boys want to come along?' Krank nods. 'Safety in numbers,' he says. 'Or company in death,' replies the old guy. 'But I'll take either. Grab your guns.'" For the last few years, I've been attending the Nova … Continue reading The Ceresia Campaign – a NOVA Open 40k Trios Team retrospective
