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

Grey Knight eBay rescue project- Progress so far

A couple months back I got a pretty good deal on a bunch of grey knights from eBay which where in very good condition. Since receiving them in the post I’ve been working on them here and there. As I have had some unexpected free time this afternoon, I wanted to use it and give a quick update on my progress. These miniatures are still W.I.P but a status update on this project is long overdue. With that said, here is the collection as it currently stands.

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.

Loosing my motivation to paint Games Workshop Products.

It’s been a little while since I last posted on here and sadly enough, that is because I haven’t had much to report on. After spending a great deal of time over the lockdown period enthused to paint miniatures and get my 40k & AOS armies ready for a return to play, I’ve finally ran out of steam.

Discovering Frostgrave 2nd Edition

About a month or so ago while browsing YouTube, I stumbled upon a interesting table top Fantasy skirmish game that really caught my imagination. The game is called Frostgrave and features players controlling a party of adventurers, headed by a wizard and wizard’s apprentice as they battle not only the other player, but also A.I. controlled monsters in an attempt to find treasure. Though characters share similar starting stat profiles, ten different schools of magic with a vast amount of spell options mean you can really make something that feels unique. This elegant simplicity (to start) yet complexity really appeals. I’ve not yet had chance to play sadly, but I’m really excited for this one so wanted to bring it to your attention, as well as show off some of the minis I’ve been working on for it.

eBay rescue project- Grey Knights

I have a habit of skimming through eBay for miniatures while bored. As many of you who share this trait know, a lot of the time offerings are overpriced or just not worth looking at. Sometimes you do find a bargain though and I did just that with this Grey Knight army. I was able to get the collection for a very good price and within a few days, my new hobby project had arrived!

Though I’ve a few other things in the works at the moment, I was too excited to not make a start on these and so decided to document my progress.

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. 😀
