2013 and a new man cave

13 Jan

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.

Blood Angels

29 Nov

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.

Irregular Magazine Issue 13

18 Nov

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!

A little of what I painted in 2012

11 Nov

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.

Visions of the Apocalypse

11 Nov

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.
