Spoils of War

A mate of mine occasionally asks me to sell his old hobby stuff online and as payment I get first dibs as well as the stuff that, to most people, is completely worthless.

Here’s the ‘junk’ I received today.


I’m taking some time off in May and I think I’ve just found my next scenery project 🙂

P.S. The quality items will appear on eBay soon, I think you’re going to like them…

Dark Angels Tactical Squad – WIP

04/12/2014 2 comments

Following on from my experiment to see if I could paint a single Dark Angel in an hour or so (clicky), I’ve decided to see if I can finish off his squad mates.

Here’s how far I’ve got.


With the exception of the sergeant, I’ve been doing this by assembly line. All that’s really left is for the weapons, company markings and individual detail to finish. Hopefully I’ll get at least the bolter marines done tomorrow.

Bretonnian Army Book ‘no longer available’

Well, well, well. I’ve been have a wee poke about the new GW website and look what I found, or didn’t find to be more accurate.


The tubes have been aflutter about the possibility of a Wood Elf release in May, this could still well happen however their book is still available.


What does this mean? Probably nothing. The defeatist in me wonders is this truly is the end of our loveable gallic nobles as we currently know them.

I think there’s more than enough room in the Old World for them but the Design Studio has a big task on their hands to bring them back up to the standard of the other armies. Maybe we’ll see a Dark Eldar like resurgence, I really hope so.

Hidden in Plain Sight 2: Plastic Valhallans on the way?

Considering some of the colourful feedback I received last time, it is with some trepidation that I again ruminate over an image in the latest White Dwarf.

This photo appears on page 22 of issue 10, look at the writing on the turret’s shield.


Could some plastic Valhallan infantry kits be gracing us before too long?
