Finishing Hobby Projects- A Productive Sunday

I’ve been juggling a couple of projects for a bit which have been quite slow going. On Sunday I got all of these out so I could review where I was up to and what needed to be done to get them over the finish line. In the end, I spent approximately 9 hours working on the Ironclad for my Kharadron Overlords, as well as the Vehicles from the eBay Grey Knights project. I can now say happily that these projects are more or less complete

Building an Ironclad- Part 4

It’s been a little while since I last gave an update on the Ironclad. When I last left off, the miniature had been assembled with the balloon section loose, the magnet baron flight stand fitted and the whole miniature base coated with leadbelcher spray. Since then, I’ve gave the model a fluffy cloud base to match the rest of my army (made simply from cotton wool PVA glued to the base,) and been working on base colours and metallics. There is still a ton of work to do on this model but I think it is starting to come together quite nicely.

1 Year of WordPress Blogging & Hobby updates

I received an e-mail this morning notifying me that this blog has been active for a year and what a strange year it has been. A side effect of the Covid crisis and being forced to stay in lockdown has been an increase in spare time for hobby projects. It’s been an opportunity to work through my backlog and get a few long term projects cleared away. What’s more, it’s been an opportunity to begin blogging about the hobby. When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. 😀

Building an Ironclad- Part 2

A little more progression today with the Ironclad for my Kharadron Overlords army. When it comes to Warhammer, I’m used to blitzing the construction phase to get to painting as quickly as possible. With a model as complex and large as the Ironclad however, slow and steady is proving to be the best philosophy. Here is my progress from where we left off in part 1.

Building an Ironclad- Part 1

There are some miniatures which are so awesome, they are the reason a hobbyist will start collecting an army. For myself, the Ironclad was the miniature which drew me to the Kharadron Overlords. A huge airship brimming with firepower, this centre piece model really makes a statement. Imposing, detailed and quirky, I love the Ironclad and so it was only a matter of time and saving before I got myself one. The model has been sat for a few weeks in my pile of shame but with A.O.S 3rd edition on the horizon, I felt now was a good time to get started. In this Blog series I aim to document my progress as I build and paint this airship. Lets get started!

Kharadron Overlords Army- Hobby Progress update

I’ve been chipping away at the Kharadron Overlords for the last month and wanted to get a quick post up showing the full collection as it currently sits in its W.I.P state. There is still a fair bit of detailing work to do and pretty much everything requires basing, however things are starting to come together quite nicely. (And just in time for A.O.S 3rd edition!)

Warhammer Hobby Update- April 2021

It feels like forever since I last found a spare moment to post on here as life has been rather more hectic than usual. The steady decline of Covid lockdown measures has meant work has become more demanding. What’s more, the gyms are now reopen and even my H.E.M.A club has found an outdoor space where we can start practicing again. Between these and family commitments, I’ve had little time or energy for writing blog posts. That said, I have been doing a bit of hobby and while I have 30 mins free time this morning, thought I’d get a quick post up showing what I’ve been working on.

Warhammer Underworlds- Thundrik’s Profiteers

I spent a bit of time over the Easter bank holiday weekend working on Thundrik’s Profiteers from the skirmish game Warhammer Underworlds. I originally bought these from my FLGS about a year ago as a cheap painting project. Since then they have been painted once, stripped and left sitting in a Tupperware container. Out of sight, out of mind…
