On the Horizon

With the Halloween projects completed these are some of the projects that I would like to get to in the next few months. I might not hit all of them but at least its someplace to start.
  • Terrain: I really want to get a playable board done.
  • Beastmen: The models and the character of the army has always appealed to me. I have a small force and I want to expand it for a possible campaign at the start of next year.
  • Cygnar: My love of giant robots coming to the surface.
  • 40k Imperial Guard: Possibly a techno medieval force with salet helmets.
  • Raygun Gothic: Some stuff that fits with the blog title. 
And a few pictures of what I have done so far. More to come.

Halloween Terrain Part II

Pictures of my finished barrow tomb. I ended up using some light green static grass that I had hidden away and some cut deer hair for the tall grasses.

Halloween Contigent Assembled

My Undead contingent ready to march to war!


I'm going to use the new GW banshee as a vampiress with the ethereal power, the floaty guys as cairn wraiths and of course a block of 25 skeletons. In the background is my barrow tomb painted up. Just need to get some dead grass colored static grass for the bases and the barrow and make some movement trays for my guys.

Halloween Terrain Part 1

I'm participating in a Halloween themed multi-player Warhammer Fantasy Battle game this coming weekend. My contribution is about 500pts of Vampire Counts and a piece of terrain. I wanted the two to be tied together and I love the archaic bronze age look to the Vampire Counts skeletons. So I thought a barrow tomb, perhaps that my vampire escaped out of, would be perfect.
Rough Sketch: thinking about some green lighting effects on the inside

Assembled out of carved pink foam

Painted with a mix of carpenters glue and wood filler and then textured with sand and gravel

Next Step painting!

The Adventure Begins

So why start a blog? The main reason I'm starting this one is to keep a record of what I'm working on and to motivate myself. If it helps, inspires, or just allows someone else waste a few minutes then so much the better.

I've been involved in the miniatures hobby on and off for the last 20 years. Mainly, with Games Workshop products but also others. I'm returning from a two year hiatus away from gaming and thought that I might record the process of getting back into gaming and miniatures again.
