It took several months and a bit longer than I expected and hoped but the Stormcast display piece is finally done. I’m very happy with how he turned out and I didn’t have any issues in the final phases of the mini so I’ll just share some pictures and talk a bit about my inspiration … Continue reading Warhammer AoS – Bastian Carthalos is Complete!
There is a light at the end of this display painting tunnel! I have mostly finished the actual Stormcast mini and can turn my attention to the base very soon. Here is a look at it. First off, I have to credit and thank a painting friend of mine. I was stumped for what color … Continue reading Warhammer AoS – The Penultimate Update
I figure the best way to start is to get the bad news out of the way first. I will not be able to enter in GD this year for a humbling reason. I did not pay close enough attention to what I needed to do before Adepticon and I missed the registration period. While … Continue reading No Golden Demon This Year
After taking a week off, I have a lot to share. So much so that I’m going to have a little Table of Contents to make it easy to find what you want to read and skip what you want. Here’s a look at what’s on tap for this update: Painting Progress Review of Hawkeye … Continue reading Warhammer AoS – Running out of Time
Its a sports axiom that my Dad often uses to describe teams who may be less talented but win games because they’re luckier than the other team. This is especially applicable in the playoffs (or the Champion’s League Knockout rounds for you European readers) where it is win or go home. I feel like this … Continue reading Warhammer AoS – Is it better to be lucky than good?
I say grind because it has been a bit of an up and down affair working on this Stormcast Eternal. Thankfully, I have made decent progress and have a fair bit to show off. First off, let’s take a look at the front. I finished a few more things like the pecs on the armor … Continue reading Warhammer – Back to the Stormcast Grind
There could be some whining, complaining, and hobby hysterics in this post. So you’ve been warned! My motivation to work on the competition piece really started to wane this week and just kept going down with each day. It didn’t help that I worked on some boring parts of the mini and felt uncertain how … Continue reading Warhammer AoS – Modest Progress and Plenty of Frustration
It has been an interesting week hobby-wise with quite a few things to discuss so let’s not waste any time. First up, I had great fun today getting my recently finished shotgun-style house, which Black Site Studio calls the Kingsley Residence, ready for some photos. I’m not quite sure what to call the house so … Continue reading Fallout – A Final Look at the Kingsley Residence
I almost didn’t update this holiday weekend because I didn’t feel like I had enough to show off or that it would be interesting enough to warrant sharing. But I was inspired by The Imperfect Modeler, who is working on a big project and only makes what feels like to the person creating it, small … Continue reading Warhammer AoS – Showing a little leg
It has been a strange couple of weeks for me and this will be a long and winding update I imagine as well. I had a strange holiday break that also had a lot of family drama so perhaps the less said about that the better. There will be no retrospective on 2021 or goals … Continue reading Unfinished Business and New Year’s Ramblings
