Skaven and High Elves painting challange is over!

Today is the end date of the Skaven and High Elves painting challange, as part of celebrating the tenth anniversary of The Island of Blood. At first the challange received no interest from anyone, I was worried it might have been too constrictive in it’s theme. There was a point where I was going toContinue reading “Skaven and High Elves painting challange is over!”

A full circle this year, not only did I celebrate my 10th anniversary joining the hobby, and ten years since I’ve started my Dark Elves army, but now I’m going back to where it all started.

12 days of Winter| Vampire Counts 7th/ 8th edition army

With the announcement that Warhammer fantasy was coming back under the brand called ‘The Old World’, I thought it was about time I cobbled together my Vampire Count army.

Today I have a unit of Knights Errant that I’ve been working on for the past few days. They are knights that are learning the ropes of becoming fully fledged knights, from learning to fight on their rounsey horses and to follow the laws of chivalry. Bretonnia is known to have noble blood (or veryContinue reading “My final tribute to the Old World, a Bretonnia Project (part 2): Knights Errant”

My final tribute to the Old World, a Bretonnia project (part 1)

This post took me way longer to type up than it should’ve been. Having been distracted by playing Dark Souls every day trying to progress against the grind, and enjoying how rewarding the game is each time I finally beat a boss. Painting my models has been a lot slower than usual because of myContinue reading “My final tribute to the Old World, a Bretonnia project (part 1)”
