General Hobby Chatter!

Recommended Posts

I finished my yearly inventory project, only to ruin the whole thing by buying a bunch of older boxes that still had the old Warhammer Fantasy printing on it, because it filled gaps in the collection, and it was 25% off.

But my paints are now organized too :D

Also the newborn twins helped me beat my fear of painting large models. Just that subtle realization about how much they mean to me, that I’m carrying them around one armed (if not nearly one-handed), and the big models were $100 at most and won’t be damaged permanently by painting.

If you think that this might help you get over your fear of painting large models, I also suggest checking with your wife before having a kid, she may not be as enthusiastic about having so many of your works of art around the house.

Haha, now that's double-edged advice. xD

Also here's two cool things.

Fellow working on an ambitious project of "A.I" for AoS for solo play.

 
And the scrapfleet fellow with his Ironjawz proxies for Kharadron begun work on his main sky vessel.

If you have a cat that likes carrying around ziplock bags as "prey", keep your bags of bits far away from them.

I came home to a lot of lady bits strewn about the stairs.

Oof, only thing worse than what the cat dragged in is what it drags out.

That's gorgeous!  (and the moons are so fitting with the comparison :D )

Did you already put that in Inspirational Art? That'd be great for a Tempest city force that's either basing itself as the flying ship city of Bataar with a more rustic "Kharadron" fleet or a new city made up of floating islands like around the Tauroi archipelago skylands. :)

Its john blanche one of the artist who made the GW look, may of invented the bad moon look for warhammer. defined "the red period" of the late 80s and nineties, inquisitor and mordheim. I always just assume he is known in the hobby but in an old head.  I recall the whispers of the chaos gods of law.

Yeah Blanche is very recognisable, I don't believe I've ever seen that painting before, but .y first thought was that it was either him or someone emulating his style.

It's mostly the one, the other is content sitting on my lap while I paint and getting hair in my paintjobs.

Headbutting minis also is sometimes cause for a discussion.

Whoa, this guy's got a gruesome hobby project. He's making all the Endless Spells grotesque. xD

Like Purple Suns hatching Lord of Changes.

The Endless Spells being natural disasters from the realm-edges is bad enough but his sailing through the chaos realm first is a whole new nightmare. :D

I've been slowly grinding through painting my pastel blue 40k wych cult and making silly zombie pirate conversions for my recent cities project. Unfortunately xbox MMO's have been stealing my time a lot recently so I've not worked on them as much as I should whoops! But I did get to have my first game with the cities. My vampire general on griffon did a lot of killing (and a lot of whiffing) whereas my zombie handgunners did very little beside finishing the last couple of wounds off arkhan the black. Teach that guy to be a skeleton and not a zombie!

Hoping to get some more pics up on my blog soon now that I've sprayed some bits up for painting and have added a cannon onto an old pirate ship mortis engine to make it a steam tank. Just needs zombie crew ;) 

 

I'm very glad to see that ramshackle pirate ship too, it looks amazing and it's nice to see other embracing the pirate theme. Arrr!!

That's beautiful!

Would be great for a new race as well like a native people in the realms birthed by the God-beasts forced to hide from the pantheon.

"Despite the folktales, cats have no king. Only a queen……. Did you know that there were once many gods? Some… escaped. They slipped between the cracks in the realms, where even the Ruinous Powers dare not go. One of those gods was the mother of all cats. The first ones, at least. She left her children in every realm. Some were big, some small. Some weren’t really cats at all. But all gods leave a little of themselves behind, when they go. An echo, a whisper."

~ Balthas Arum to Elya.

Also gorgeous grots alert!

Apologies for the double post(again) but  this was just tweeted.

A phenomenal gladiator arena made for a series of AoS Warcry battles and to use some new White Dwarf stuff.

Hah nice use of a toy to create a battlefield arena! Must admit that was what I thought warcry was going to be more about - pitted gladiator battles. 

I've also taken the final final final setp toward potentially starting to do this "painting" thing and picked up some more brushes. Now I just need to clear more of the desk and actually apply some of the paint to the brush and then to the models. 

 

Also in other game related news I'm somewhat happy - Chaos Cards are having a warehouse sale and whilst there isn't much left on the list there was a load of Draco Magi sets for £2. I'd had an eye on the game before but never found it UK side for an affordable price; so £2 is a done deal!

I've scratchbuilt a general dwarven house today, just to get a feel of the techniques and materials, and it's been a blast. WIP:
