Starting in about two months this site is going to get very active. I’m moving cross country at the end of August. Once that is complete and we get settled, hopefully at the end of September, I plan on getting back into the swing of things.
A post exploring the development of the Basileus Soterios miniature and teasing his story.
The last year and a half of my life has been a living nightmare. If you read my Year of Hell post, this event and other events that came as a result of that nearly destroyed my marriage and my family on top of all the other problems. However, things are slowly improving. I’ll leave it at that. Let’s get this […]
I’m upset that I can’t keep this place up for very long without falling off the rails. For that I apologize, especially after my series on true scaling was going so well. I want to explain what’s been up. This isn’t for you so much as it is for myself. I just need to quantify and process everything that’s transpired in […]
We should be expanding the hobby, particularly in these types of fields, because we WANT Games Workshop and others to notice what we really want out of our models and our games.
UPDATE June 4: I’m working on the true scale tutorial now! Almost done with the first article on the legs. Sorry about the delay for the next article on true scale. I haven’t given up. I’m waiting for my bits order to arrive. I have everything except the fresh terminator legs and torsos I need to demonstrate every step of the process from scratch. I opted for bits rather than a full terminator kit since i have those bits hanging around already. The vanilla terminator kit is rather lackluster anyway. I have several 6th edition marine kits and I already purchased my 32mm bases. I do have a demi-squad of five true scale marines in various stages of completion, one of […]
Last time I discussed why I felt true scaling was important and why the Space Marines are the easiest target for the process. The next question becomes “how do we approach this problem?”
My growth as a hobbyist has evolved rather quickly over the last couple of years since I joined the ranks of table top wargamers. When I first got into Warhammer 40000 I was excited in the social aspects of gaming, namely hanging out with good friends and playing a quick round of a seemingly interesting game. However, after I got […]
Games Workshop, I have some terrible news. In approximately 2010, heroic scale died due to being old and out of date. It was arguably in a catatonic state for at least five years previous. Unfortunately, very few people will miss it. Despite this tragic news for the gaming community, you, Games Workshop, should feel a relief because you are the foremost maker […]
I wanted to drop a quick note to let everyone know I’m still here. I’ve been spending the last few months on family ordeals and issues, along with an impending move to a new home. Things have been tense and family has to come first. Project wise, I’ve been knee deep painting a now out of print Lucius Wolf Warhound Titan and an immense Ultramarines […]
Every morning when I wake up I make my internet rounds to get the world news and events. I even check out Warhammer forums also for new rumors and information to get me pumped up about painting. This morning I was pleasantly surprised to see my Fulgrim and Ferrus Manus figures featured on the front page of DakkaDakka.com. They had a […]
I’ve been struggling to write something that caps off the year… There wasn’t really any success in that department, so you are stuck with this. IDEAS ON THE FUTURE I’m a big fan of the Horus Heresy series, both the novels (save for the unnecessary draw out of the series) and the game adaptation from Forge World. In fact, the love […]
After each commission I take some time to reflect back on the techniques, tactics, and thoughts I collected through the experience. I intended to highlight a few thoughts in this article, but I’m just going to do one because this ran oddly long. I may do another article on the other subject, but it was me contributing to the image […]
I’ve completed my latest commission. I thought I would share the results with you.
I received a new commission this week for a Dark Angels Deathwing army. The commission has a wide variety of models including an extensive mix of standard terminators, Dark Vengeance terminators, Deathwing Knights, one or more of each heavy weapon option, a Deathwing command squad, a Space Hulk Librarian, and Belial. There are about fifty models total for an impressive collection. I would love […]
I’ve been sprucing up things behind the scenes this past week. Painting My primary task has been to try and finish up a few Imperial Guard projects I have laying around. Today, I finished cleaning all the loose bits for the last of those. Two wheeled chimeras, two standard chimeras, and a Shadowsword round out the last of the treaded […]
