Just before Christmas I moved house, and I finally got a room for my gaming and media goodies (or junk as my partner calls it) , which means I have somewhere to paint. though since moving into the room its become quite obvious that I need some storage which will require a trip to Ikea for new shelving and a new desk.
For the last 2 years I’ve been painting a Blood Angel army, but I quickly became bored of them. So much so that I’ve decided to sell them on e-bay. So before I get rid of them for good I decided to photograph them for the blog.
First of all, we’d like to start with an apology to all of our readers and contributors. We were not able to publish Irregular Magazine in Summer 2012, which we deeply regret. We believe we’ve got through the problems that made this impossible and are now back on track with regular publications!

Once again, we have another great issue, packed with excellent articles and tutorials. We have a really interesting look at the costs of producing limited miniatures runs and a discussion around
how to create scenarios for wargames, as well as a further look into the world of Magic: The Gathering.
We also have a painting guide for Clone Troopers in 15mm scale and a look at whether Airbrushing would be right for you. We also have a look into two different historical backgrounds – The Persian Empire and Trojan England (no, really! Well worth reading). We also priviledged to have an excellent piece on the future sport of Robo Basho, a world of 2115 where Giant Robots are piloted into combat in a heavy metal form of sumo!

In 2011 I did very little painting, especially in the later half and nearly quit the hobby, mainly due to the personnel problems I was going through, but going into 2012 things had changed on that front and slowly this year I’ve been painting more, though to the same amount as I did prior to 2011..I’m no longer painting armies at the moment, but painting individual miniatures and warbands. I have painted more 54mm miniatures this year and will continue to do so. This post will show off some of the items I managed to slap some paint onto during 2012.
An Apocalypse (Greek: ἀποκάλυψις apokálypsis; ‘lifting of the veil’ or ‘revelation’) is a disclosure of something hidden from the majority of mankind in an era dominated by falsehood and misconception. (Wikipedia)
Apocalyptic visions of the world ending, or the destruction of human civilisation have been with us since the dawn of time through myth and religion. Most religions have a creation and apocalypse myth. Whether it’s the Norse Ragnorok or the Christian End of Days, there is some form of apocalyptic future vision where the destruction of mankind is destined.
Hi all, I’ve not posted here for awhile now in fact I think it may be nearly 12 months since I last posted something. I’ve decided to change this blog slightly..I will still en devour to add posts about painting, but from now on there will be posts based around non historical gaming, as my other blog is mainly concerned with history and historical gaming (http://musketswordpaint.com/). Therefore I decided to try an up the ratio of blog posts on here and write about my gaming in the realms of fantasy and sci-fiction as well.
The last 18 months have seen some massive changes in my personnel life, which has meant that my painting, gaming and writing has taken a hit..Musket, sword and paint blog has been sporadic over that period with blog posts…my gaming has spiraled down to virtually none existence and painting has been a long slog…I did managed to keep Irregular Magazine in reasonable shape, though this year the team had a period of where real life got in the way of things…
So I will be uploading a post later today looking back over the items I’ve managed to paint this year, as well what I have planned going into 2013. I will also add my first gaming article..so for now cheers and this blog is now active again..
Its been a while since I last posted here, thing have goen a little astray since the last post…..Currently I’m painting some of the Space Hulk marines for a friend, so far they’re in the early stages as you can see below.
