The odd sensation of losing GW

For as long as I have been miniature gaming there has been Games Workshop. The first miniatures I collected were for a WFB army that a friend got me interested in collecting. I think it was for the Third Edition. He had an assortment of undead models and I picked up a set of Rugluds... Continue Reading →

Elven Spearmen finished

More Elven troops join the fray. I finished ten Elven Spearmen from the Elven Infantry box from North Star. All I have left now are the ten archers I built. Because they are Elves, that is 660 points of troops so I don't have a lot to paint if I want to do a 2000pt... Continue Reading →

Horrible WordPress HTML

I have been having issues trying to easily edit the 2020 painted models page as of late. I checked the HTML out in text view and I found out why.

Initially I wanted to make these fellows look a bit more sinister and evil but I seem... Continue Reading →

Sunday update

I had a bit of time last night to finish basing the Dwarf Hammerers and work on the other pieces that I have on the table. I toned down the wash I used on this set of figures and I think that I like it better. There are some imperfections on the back of their... Continue Reading →

Workbench update

People often complain about their backlog of miniatures and projects but one nice thing about having a supply of models that are ready to go is that when you lack a specific focus you can reach into it and grab something to do until you get more inspired. In this case, I have some Dwarven... Continue Reading →
