  1. USA Games Day 2011... Memphis?

    Interesting rumors have been circulating lately both on the internet and in person-to-person communications.
    The rumors had it for a while that GW North America is moving its HQ from Baltimore to Memphis, Tennessee, where they already have major production/distribution facilities.
    Couple of weeks ago our local manager suggested that the move of the HQ to Memphis is a distinct possibility. From business point of view it makes sense: Memphis is cheaper then Baltimore and they have ...
  2. Week 13: Slaanesh Marauder horsemen

    For some reason I find painting cavalry figures far more time consuming than I ever imagine that they will be. This week I have painted my second box of slaanesh Maruader horsemen.

    The general idea is that I will end up with three units of slaanesh cavalry armed with throwing spears and with only light armour. This maintains the fast cavalry ability and enables my mages to move around the battlefield within a unit that will not panic.

  3. Week 12; One slice of Cow or two?

    It has spent some time on the back burner, but at long last the Varghulf is complete. Apologies to goblin1980 for obviously ripping off his idea, but it looked so nice that I wanted to have a go...

    This is the first time I have tried to create anything imaginative with GWs water effects and I found it a lot easier than I thought it would be. The blood / gore effect was created by wrapping two small lengths of fuse wire around the painted claw so that ...
  4. Week 11: Creaky old bones

    Another week and another pile of old bones;

    I have elected to construct a number of these chaps in pairs of two to help add or remove them from the unit.

    I am aware that there is no logic in the rest of this paragraph, but here goes. I couldn't give the skeletons a wind instrument because I couldn't see how they could blow it without any lungs. Yes I know that they have no muscles to move their limbs and have no eyes to see with or ...
  5. Deathguard Dread

    I've begun painting on my dread. It's moving a long nicely
    In this pic the dread has been painted in the base colors, and washed once.

    After this I've begun workin on the left hand shoulder pad and "shoulder. Below you can see the result.



    I've also begun working on the base. It's the first "mayor" basing I've ever undertaken. Mayor to me being anything ...

  6. Space wolf terminator - WIP

    Letelly, most of my minies stays in WIP state for ages. There is a stimul to finish this one though for it is sort of a commission. Originally this mini was concieved as a lone wolf. Coincidentally, at the time I was reading some 40K book that included detailed description of the Space Wolf 13th company. The idea of fighting for 10000 years in extremely unsanitary conditions sounded so appealing that I decided to try it out, or rather to try to paint it.

  7. Week 10: Give the dog a bone

    The end of week 10 sees the end of the assembly and painting of the Chaos warhounds (at last). The army list I'm working too only requires 17 warhounds, but they come in boxes of 10 so it seemed daft not to paint all 20. The thought of three poor lonely unassembled puppies was too much for me to bear.

    After listening to comments and advice I have elected to give the dog a bone, and an arm to one lucky pup. It adds to the character and helps to distinguish between figures. I have ...
  8. CU - First Inhabitants

    Here are the first three Uruks from 15-20 I'm going to place in my Cirith Ungol tower. No bright colours - only dark robs and dusty leather. Please don't mind the bases as I'll get rid off them as the tower itself will be finnished.

  9. Week 9: Let the puppies run free

    Nine weeks have come and gone now, and I'm well on the way to completing all of the Chaos warhounds that I will need for my lists. In the list I have 17 warhounds. This week I have painted another 5 which takes my total to 15 (close but no coconut).

    I have opted to omit the horns and greenstuff over the gap. I believe that this keeps the chaps looking more like hounds and less like boars.

    I have tried to increase the contrast on both the fur and in the hair ...
  10. Death Guard

    I've invested quite a bit in Nurgle CSM and it's coming a long smoothly. Here's what I've done so far.
    The Plague Marines are only about half done. I think they're ok to game with so I'll paint the entire army to this standard before completing them. I figured I rather have one army paintad with half finished minature than half the army unpainted

    The Rhino is to be equipped with a Havoc Launcer. It's mostly done, the metal needs some ...
