Welcome all, to a loooong overdue post on a blog that is a) 14 years old this year and b) sadly neglected.
The latter point there will be rectified, as now I have my good buddy Matt Crump on board, we’ll be tag-teaming articles, and reinvigorating the blog, including the look. Lots of plans in the works, we promise!
For right now though, I’m handing over to Matt for another misty-eyed look down memory lane, and just how nostalgia can play a big part in our hobby buying decisions. Matt, over to you old bean.
Welcome everyone! Today’s post is by my good buddy Matt Crump. Matt has become somewhat of my ‘Oldhammer’ go-to guy as he loves to delve into his archives and unearth something from the vaults. Those of you who got into Games Workshop around the time of Rogue Trader will be well familiar with Matt’s offering today, and even if you’re relatively new, sit back and enjoy a look at times past…
Welcome back, dear readers! This week, another of my friends from across the pond has kindly offered to write an article for the site. Confusingly his name is also Matt, hence me using his Instagram handle in the post title.
Getting the mojo up to do some painting sometimes can be tough. Inspiration may not be forthcoming, you may be getting to much thrown at you in your day-to-day work/life situation, so what can you do?
This is quite a long one, so make a cuppa, rev up some crumpets and marmite and settle in.
This week my brother-from-another-mother Matt will be leading the charge, and for that I am grateful as work has been a little hectic! In this article Matt takes a trip down memory lane to the days of yore and the era of Space Crusade and Robocop which prompted the decision for the latest model he painted for his collection. Matt, over to you squire!
As I had mentioned in my previous post, I’d picked up the army book, cards and miniatures for the Daughters of Khaine forces of Age of Sigmar. I’m not sure why these hadn’t caught my eye earlier, but I’ve got to say, the movement and posing of these Aelves is just gorgeous. The miniatures really get across the message that these are lithe, brutal killers, and bloody scary to boot.
Bloody hell. September? WTF??? Work has had me with my nose definitely at the grindstone. In fact, I haven’t picked up a paintbrush in over a month, which just won’t do. Since my last post, though, I have been busy painting and playing (yes actually playing!) More after the jump…
Now that Chiberia/Ice Planet Hoth seems to be retreating, life seems to be returning to normal. I recently picked up a copy of ‘A Song of Blades and Heroes’ by Ganesha Games as I wanted to use a simple and fun rule set to give me an excuse to put together a warband using the Pantheon of Chaos figures I picked up a little while ago through the Knightmare Miniatures Kickstarter campaigns.
