Hobby Summary 2021
2021 is almost over! Let’s have a quick look back over the painting achievements, shall we? In direct comparison to last year, things on the hobby front are looking better. At a quick glance, this year I have mostly been painting Space Marines! They’ve made up a fair chunk of this years painting achievements –…
Knight-Vexillor – Stormblood Guard
As the end of the year looms and the dreaded ‘This is what I’ve managed to paint’ post is coming, it was high time I finished off at least one more model! One that has been waiting simply for the seasons to change so it could be based and finished. Honestly, this year’s hobby wrap-up…
It’s been… 84 years.
Hello everyone, although the posts have been thick and fast lately, it does feel like the hobby has been neglected. Remedying this happened last night during an impromptu Livestream. Some new tech needed to be tested out – an arm the camera sits on – so it felt like the perfect excuse to have a…
Scout Sergeant Knives
I wrote about this guy in a previous post. So, if you want to know more about who he is and what this means, then by all means go visit there. I’ll see if I can dig out the old Knives model and share them side by side at some point in the near future!
Chaplain on a Bike
This model initially intimidated me. I adore Chaplains so I really wanted to do him justice – I mean, he is an epic model – but I wasn’t sure how to go about it. I streamed blocking in the base colours and part way through the process decided that the bike should be read. The…
I’ve been working on finishing up a few of the Space Marines as of late, and managed to get the five man squad of intercessors finished off. Why do models always look decent until they’re photographed? I can see so many bits that I missed and really should touch up, but prior to that I…
A rare hobby post appears!! It’s been a while since I felt in the right sort of mood for miniature hobby ‘stuff’ but after being encouraged to Livestream again, I’ve been slowly getting back into it – I think it helps that the kiddo has gone back to school and I can focus a bit…

And the beat goes on.
It has been a while since I got the urge to do any miniature painting, but as with everything, it comes back around and the brushes get picked up again and project continue as though the time off never happened! Today, I continued work on the Stormblood Guard in the form of the Easy to…
I’m happy to have moved on from the Primaris Intercessors and onto… Primaris Outriders. Space Marines on motorbikes are pretty awesome as is, but when these chunky bikes were revealed in the Indomitus box, they had to be added to my many ranks of motorbikes! (Which, I still need to paint a lot of, d’oh)…
