Cake, the way Russ intended!

Sooo... been away for a while, things got rather busy in the last few months what with the arrival of reinforcements, We now have a 7 1/2 month old son taking up most of our time. The boy's getting so big I'm starting to think he may actually be an Astartes.

Modelling has been a back burner for a while but I've been painting where I can. got a few more projects underway. Painting a pure Thousand Son's army for a Friend as well as Alpha legion for myself. There's World Eaters waiting in the Wings, the usual Wolfy stuff, The Sons of Ignis are getting a repaint to Storm Wardens and I've got the new starter set to incorporate into the aforementioned Alpha Legion.

Returning to the main point of this post, I turned 34 at the end of august and my very talented wife made me this for my birthday.

She used one of my Space Wolf Rhino's as the model and needless to say I was over the moon when I saw it.

Check out her stuff at Cozzmic Cakes.

So that's all for now and hopefully I'll be posting more stuff soon.

March... the wolfiest month there is!

So as you all know, Space wolves are kinda my thing. Imagine the nerdgasm that ensued when I found theses!

Arjac Rockfist

I can hear the sighs coming from Coz now. But at least my birthdays are covered for a while.
The big question now is what to do with my converted Arjac?

Keeping it gribly!

Nurgle.. despite not having a great deal in any game system I have a secret love of painting all things Nurgle.
I've painted my wife's Plague Bearers, my brother in law's Plague Marines and I'm currently working on Epidemius for my wife.
I recently finished the new Plastic Nurgle Lord for WFB. I'm not fielding nurgle but I couldn't resist the model.

I did a bit of research before painting on putrefaction in human tissues to get the colours right. Yellow mixed into rotting flesh and purple washes helped to add to the necrotic look of it's tissues. I also mixed up a glaze using gloss varnish to give the innards a nice gooey look.

My ultimate test for any nurgle model is my wife. If she refuses to pick up the model I know I've done a good job!

Space Wolf Dreadnought

So, not posted in  a while, life 'n all that!

Been working on a conversion for my Space Wolves army, I purchased the Furioso Dreadnought kit while my brother in law pick up the Venerable Dreadnought.

After some furious bits swapping and chopping I was able to come up with this...

I felt any half decent wolf dread needed a big choppy claw to complete it. Add in a few furs left over from my Chaos Marauders and your away. Still working on  a name for him though, will have to dig out my Norse mythology books again.
