Hobby Round up Week 13

I, Frazer Overlord of all, have been busy with Witches, cowboys, an industrial walker for IHMN and a couple of the Warlord plastic infantry to add to the British IHMN company and a Pegasus for Warhammer Elves

Unlucky for some?!
It's been busy on the Simon's workbench, anyone would think he's been off work 'ill'...
Simon has continued to build Next Door Matt's Chaos Marines; this week we have Terminators, Raptors and some magnetised Special Weapons.
Simon has also been busy paining World War 2 related figures at two scales, firstly the last of his 28mm Brits and then some more 15mm Brits

Neil has built some figures in anticipation of playing Lion Rampant, here we have six archers and six halberdiers

Chris continues to inflict hobby pain upon himself, he is currently painting a large collection of Night Goblins. The plastic figures are almost done, with just the metal, teeth, eyes and bases to do. The metal Netters & Clubbers and the Fanatics will follow.

Hobby Round up Week 12

It may be 24 hours later than usual, but the wait will be worth it!

First this week are some more pictures of the Nurgle Chaos Warriors that Neil has been working on over the last few weeks. Seven models are now there or there abouts

Simon has been busy again, not only with his own stuff, but with some Chaos Marines for Next Door Matt.
Simon has continued work on his Space Wolves and now has some more Terminators that are ready for the table top.

Si loves to build the models that others hate, and even those that they don't!
He has been recently been building Chaos Space Marines for Next Door Matt, with a Lord, some foot sloggers and a Rhino (not pictured) now ready for some paint.

Hobby Round up Week 11

Happy Mothers day!
Not a great deal of hobby to report this week.
First up, Neil has continued to plough through some Avatars of War 'Nurgle Warriors'. Having built them last week, now they have a white undercoat and in some cases a myriad of different inks
Simon continues to beaver away on his Space Wolves. His Terminator squad now has a few more colours on them.
Finally for this week we have Frazer's efforts. He continues to plough through the large amount of Dark Elf Witches he owns, but inches ever closer to bringing them to a Wednesday game.

Frazer has also continued to work on some Lonewolf Terminators....
... and whilst hunting through the garage, unearthed some of his Chaos Marine collection that will be hitting eBay soon.

Hobby Round up Week 10

Welcome to another visual feast of hobby updates!
First up we have some Wolf Guard from Frazer. Many years ago, we created a squad of Space Wolves converted to look like members of the club. Back then we were all in power armour, but now after taking part in many battles, the most decorated of us are being immortalised in Tactical Dreadnought Armour.
First up are Si, Neil and Dave.
Next from Frazer's work in progress pile is some Dropzone Commander vehicles that he is painting for Dave. As you can see they are resplendent in an urban camo scheme
Simon is next and contrary to the photos he is not a hobby vampire, just appears to prefer taking photos in the dark!
First we have some more Space Wolves, this time for his personal force.
Simon is our resident Bob the Builder, helping out those of the club who are unable to or prefer not to build their own figures.
This week he has been helping out Next Door Matt by constructing his Forge Fiend. He has gone the who hog by magnetising the head and weapons.

Neil, with a bit more time on his hands at the moment, has been working on some Avatars of War Corrupters, which are lovely models but a beast to glue together.

He has done a test scheme on one of them, using a white undercoat and a selection of different inks. For the observant of you, no that isn't the original head, but in fact a Heresy miniatures Blight head.

Oh and he also drew a face on a sqush... say hello to Sidney...
Finally this week, Chris has finished his first 10 Martians from Mantic Game's Mars Attacks game. He will go back to some of the bases in the future and add some trash, with ideas of how to do discarded fizzy pop cans top of his agenda.

Frazer & Simon Dark Elf and Space Wolf Work in Progress

Si has been working on his Space Wolves over the last weeks and his painting is really coming along, unlike his photography.  The underwhelming picture disguises an other wise talented painter!


I have been giving some love to the less than lovely Dark Elf Witches.  I returned to them after nearly a year of being nearly finished.  When I examined them they were far from finished and not as good as I remembered.  So I have repainted some parts of them and have tried to get a good table standard for these dirty ladies.  With my New Year's resolution of only playing with fully painted figures they won't be making it to the table this week.

Hobby Round up week 9

Happy St David's Day!

So to kick off this week, we have our resident Welshman Neil.

Last week he teased us with a base for a non specific model, well this week we can reveal it is for an Ork Warboss on Bike. The model is from Forgeworld with the head changed to a Maxmini Tech Freak one.

Chris has started work on Dave's Dropzone Commander figures, with the first coats of green making their way on to the tanks.

 He has also done the base colours on ten Martians from Mantic's Mars Attacks game
