Hobby Update

It's a new year now and as such I have finally made my way back to the hobby side of the Warhammer 40k universe after a 5 month break from it.

As you may be able to see from the picture I have kept my self busy over the Christmas/New Year period by constructing a Daemon Prince, Defiler and Dreadnaught for my Slaaneshi Army, 5 more Terminators for my Space Wolves and finally put together Urien Rakarth as a side project to painting marines.


My aim for now is to keep this blog updated with my progress, both in modelling and painting, of the models pictured and those acquired throughout the next year. I have the Space Wolf Terminators from Forge World to put together and a few buildings to construct. I am aiming to base coat all the models shown by the weekend, and start painting the Defiler by the end of the weekend.

So there we are for now folks, the models are pretty much complete, just need the bases for the Daemon Prince and Dreadnaught to arrive so that they can be fully put together.

Just a quick note on Urien Rakarth, which I will come back to in another post, but how frustrating is he to put together? I'm not sure if it's down to the fact I am more used to handling the chunky Space Marine pieces, but I found the fixing of his little additional arms to be ridiculously hard. Most the time they ended up glued to my fingers or dropping off before the glue had set.

With similar models in the future I would be tempted to put a little blob of green stuff in the hole, squeeze the arm in place, then remove any excess GS from the model instead of going with superglue directly.

Hope you all had a good New Year. See you all in a week or so!


  1. Wow that's a whole load of progress there mate, it's all looking really good. Hopefully I'll catch up with you soon. Keep the updates coming!

  2. You look like you've had a huge amount of progress too mate. Hopefully we can get a couple of interesting battles in soon with our new armies/models.


Thanks for your comment it is very much appreciated. I hope to hear more from you in the future!
