Hobby update : I've been a bit lax

I can't believe I haven't posted since march.  I'm sorry, very sorry-- but this means the update will be longer, not sure if that's a good thing or not...

Firstly, I've been a fool and assembled more Angels Encarmine instead of painting what I've already got.  I'll have to stop now-- I'm out of Night Lords shoulder pads.  The metal librarian conversion I was originally intending for the Sagodjur Fjorlag, before scale became a problem in my mind.  I shaved the mask off a dark eldar hellion and it made a nice batty face.

And two captains.  The one on the left will be the DC commander.  Unless storm shields aren't allowed...

On a less serious note I'm having a go at making a cherubic host to carry the helmet for my 3rd captain Baldr.

more WiP, including a musician

7th command is coming along slowly, very slowly.  From left, we have; Dormouse, Queen (sergeant) and Carpenter.  D'you see the theme?
The first one I finished was Hatter.

Not sure if the photos show it, but yes-- I gave him an in-this-style-ten-and-six in his hatband.

Also I'm still striving to get 7th captain Thunraz right.  I think this is it, after about five incarnations...
Not sure if his weapon would count as a chainaxe or a thunder hammer, but I'm finally happy with it!  Especially the Blanche-esque wing crest.

and people question the fact I play loyalist.  Really, I ask you...

So that's that.  A lot less painting than I'd like, I know that much-- and now with the 2016 space marine sprue sitting on the bench I'm not sure if any will get done at all, but oh well-!
Bye bye for now.


Secret side project for a friend


  1. Is the company champion going to be called Snickersnack?

    1. Good idea! But that'd be more his twin chainaxes, Snick and Snack. I was thinking more a name like "Then Don't Talk".

  2. I don't question the loyalty of your army, it just reminds me of this quote:

    “For beauty is nothing but the beginning of terror
    which we are barely able to endure, and it amazes us so,
    because it serenely disdains to destroy us.
    Every angel is terrible.”

    ― Rainer Maria Rilke, Duino Elegies

  3. I can see I have a lot of catching up to do with this lot before I even start to ask questions.

    1. Take your time! Don't be afraid to ask ;)
