Another big gap between posts but I do have somethings in the works moving forward. First up my shipment of Chieftan MBTs came in and this week I've been slowly assembling the 2 troops. Hopefully they'll see some paint in the next couple of weeks. Every yea...

Team Yankee: Scimitars and Scorpions
The first sections of my Recce company are finally done. These guys have been sitting in front of me for what feels like months now primed and begging for some paint. This past weekend I finally broke out my airbrush and huddled on my front porch hiding fro...

Quick update as I painted up another of the familiars from the set. I really like how he harkens back to the old metal familiar from many a year ago but updated to match Age of Sigmar. I decided to play up the motley in Tzeentch horror colors and of course ...

Grot Scuttlings
With a box set as big as Silver Tower not every miniature can be a winner.  The grots happen to be the unfortunate recipients of that title. I would have liked them  more if they had taken the spider mutations a bit further and avoided that rather awkward p...

Tenebrael Shard
The past few weeks have seen a lull in painting. I simply haven't had much desire to get the brushes out. However this past weekend the wife and I got in on another Age of Sigmar game down at the local gamestore. This has managed to rekindle some modelling ...
