My local club Leicester Phat Cats recently held a Horus Heresy Dreadnought painting competition and I couldn’t resist throwing my hat into the ring. The club has some great painters so I knew it would be a good competition! In fact, this is the second competition of (hopefully) many, I took 2nd place with Perturabo […]
I saw this game on an old forum and thought it’d be fun and interesting to run as a new series on here. I present to you the eBay Challenge! The original idea was “Can you turn £10 into £500 painting and selling miniatures on eBay”, however I have a huge collection of old minis […]
My latest finished model is now on here, Madrak 3 from Privateer Press. I took this along to Smogcon 2017 and entered the P3 competition. While it didn’t win a prize I got some great feedback from the judges and know exactly what I did wrong. I’ll be back next year for sure hopefully for […]
Here’s my latest commission – Harry the Hat from Guild Ball…
It’s been a while, but after a break here’s my latest commission – Perturabo. Since I last posted I painted a lot of Trollbloods, which at some point I’ll get some shots of, I’m also working on a number of new projects which should see this blog very soon!
With Guild Ball on the horizon, I’ve been working on a dedicated table for it.

Stage 1 – Basecoat After getting a 3′ x 3′ MDF board […]
It’s been a while since I started this model, but with Smogcon around the corner he features in one of my Iron Gauntlet lists and so needs to be finished. His flaming fists were the next job on the list (lighting was crap when I took the second): During the later part of last year […]
This is the first of many repainted Trolls I’ll be doing over the next couple of months ready for the first UK Iron Gauntlet competition. I finished him in time for the ETC last weekend and took 3rd place in the single miniature competition :).
It has been a long time – almost a year in fact – since I have done any painting whatsoever. In 2013 I had a lot of plans for painting projects which unfortunately never came to fruition. I attended a LOT of Warmachine/Hordes tournaments over the year with my Trolls but didn’t paint a single […]
The last month or so has seen me move my painting station to a new location, giving me a bigger space to work in, and have my photography station, painting table and airbrush set up in the same space which is great. Here’s the start of my current project – the 133rd Pollaxan Janissaries, an […]
