Weekly Update #3 - The Dead Gods return

Well its that time again, I'm actually surprised that I've kept this up for 3 weeks now haha

So I'm finally back onto normal hours at work, meaning I get my life back and with that a bit of time for hobbying. The necron lord still isn't quite finished but given I want to stick at these weekly updates I figured I'd get some pics of him anyway:

Mr Feral suggested I go for an ash waste type base for him, and I think its worked out rather well(proves he can be right occasionally ;) ).

I also now have 10 Immortals, mainly because I got bored of waiting for wayland to dispatch my order so I just braved GW Birmingham when I was in the city the other day and picked some up. I have the first 5 built and these will be getting undercoated tonight.

As if to just prove me wrong, today I have recieved shipping confirmation from Wayland, only taken them 2 weeks to dispatch items that were supposed to be in stock................everytime they pull this crap I will say I wont buy from them again, but I know I will end up going back to them yet again :(

Also here is a bit of a shouth out to my good friend High Marshal Dave, he has just returned to his blog after a prolonged break from it. Hes working largely on FoW stuff at the moment so go pay him a visit :) :

And I'll leave this update with the latest song from one of my favourite bands heres hoping they tour around by me this year :D

Weekly Ramblings #2

Good evening readers,

Time for another of my new weekly posts :) , been kept rather busy with work the past week so haven't had much energy for a lot of hobbying. However a new distraction has landed..............

The first of my planned 500pt Necron force has arrived that being the Anrakyr the traveller model, this model caught my attention when I was in the warhammer world miniatures hall and I thought he would be the model i would use for my lord.

He's very WiP but you get the idea of the scheme I'm going for:

I'm still undecided on what basing style to go for, I'm currently thinking urban as it will contrast with the boney colour. I'm open to any suggestions for bases though :)

I ordered this guy direct from GW as I thought if there was a problem with the finecast its far easier to get it changed. He came withn 2 days of ordering which is funny really as I ordered some immortals off Wayland games 3 days before I ordered the guy and they havent even been dispatched yet........................

Well thats it for another week, as ever let me know what you think guys :)

Weekly Ramblings 1#

Evening readers time for what I hope will be a regular feature.

That being a weekly post something I have stolen off that despicable Mr Feral. So to start it off this week here are some WiP corsair terminators:

These guys are converted from the plastic dark vengeance ones, originally they were meant to be finished in time for my meet up with Rictus and Nife however work prevented that from happening :( With our next meet up happening in 6 months time it gives em time to really go to town on them a bit more.

They are similar in theme to my power armoured marines although these guys will be getting more chaosy details and effects given they are effectively drawn from Hurons inner circle. The instant mold I have has proven invaluable again letting me make the chaos star talisman on the one guy.

Next up is the very early bare bones stage of my terminator lord. Given the rather poor performance of the power armoured one in games I figured i needed soemthing with a little more hitting power. Step in terminator armour:

His pose is inspired by my original corsair model from a few years back:

Will be taking my time over this model given he will be my centre piece leader, you will see him take shape over the coming weeks.

Next up is my rough list for the possible 500pt Zone Mortallis Necron Force:


Overlord - War Scythe, Sempiternal weave


10 Immortals

10 Immortals - Tesla Carbines

Fast Attack

3 Canoptek Wraiths

Not sure how effective this would be but its nice and compact.

Anyway thats it for now, shall return with another ramble in a weeks time

Stirring from slumber

Good evening guys and girls,

I'm back again, 2 months since my last post............

I do have a valid excuse this time however, I've been working 6 day weeks for the past 7 weeks with another 2 and a half to go before I return to normal hours this has left me with very little free time. Add to this I now have a girlfriend and that time is further constricted.

This means I have failed to really do any hobby at all short of getting a few more corsairs converted up:

Because of this I failed to get my next batch of models done in time for my weekend meet up with Rictus and Nife(Which just so happened to have been this weekend just gone)

Speaking of which a good time was had even if I ended up leaving with the new Tau codex, pathfinders and commander. Then from Forge world I ended up with: 4 Tau Barracuda and 2 Tigersharks for Aeronautica Imperialis as well as the show only Krieg quartermaster. I blame Rictus for all of this......

So my Current plan is to get the corsairs to 1000pts and update my Tau army hopefully when I'm back to my normal work hours I can get back to being productive :-)
