Well 2020 didn’t quite go how any of us expected, did it? I spent two weeks in hospital at the start of the year with ulcerative colitis (don’t recommend it), and had to temporarily close my business because of the corona virus. Still, there are lots of people who are far worse off than me […]Read More All the bits I did in 2020
I didn’t get as much painting done this year as last year due to work (both teaching and illustration) but I did manage a bit. I converted up two cars for Gaslands using bits from Ramshackle Games. No idea when I’ll get to play, but they were fun to convert and weather. Hopefully they’ll get […]Read More All the bits I did in 2019
Continuing on with the relationship between orks and chaos, we get to Possessed Warpheadz. When a regular weirdboy just isn’t weird enough, chuck a daemon in the mix and have at it! Here’s an extract from the old Games Workshop Freebooters book. The parts that I like most about this fluff are: The daemon is […]Read More Possessed Warphead

The above is from page 153 of the […]Read More Murderous follower of the city-scum.
The Realm of Chaos books are amazing sources of fluff and inspiration. They are full to the brim with great artwork, evocative stories, and truly characterful miniatures. They are also a bit tough to navigate, and can be a touch daunting. With this in mind, I set aside 4 hours to roll up and draw […]Read More Got a spare couple of hours? Why not roll up a chaos champ?
The mercenaries from the Rogue Trader days are some of my favourite minis. For me, they capture the look and feel of the 40K universe more than any other miniatures. http://www.solegends.com/citrt2/rt7mercenaries/index.htm Among this all star cast though, there is one star that shines more brightly than all the others. Old World Jack. He looks like […]Read More Old World Jack, icon of an era.
A couple of friends of mine who inhabit the same small niche corner of the wargaming world as me have mentioned starting a blog a few times. One in particular, Mr Papafakis http://papafakis.blogspot.com/ , has mentioned it a few times. So I’ve decided the take the plunge, grab the bull by the horns, and try […]Read More And so it begins…..
