This is going to be the first of what I hope to make a weekly article talking about what I have been working on along with anything else that comes to my attention over the course of the last week. As always if you want to contribute or just talk about something hobby related get in touch either here or on social media to have a chat.
I have been happily working through a commission for some Mechanicum for 30k this week making good progress on three Domitar battle autonoma. I am a big fan of these kits having just finished one for my own army and I’m enjoying watching this colour scheme coming together. It’s always a little bit nerve wracking doing the first part of a commission as you want to meet client expectations and get set things up to deliver what they want. Hopefully they will come together over the weekend and then I can post some images, the scheme is a bit different from my own but there are some lovely contrasts to it and a good narrative background so I’m quite excited to progress with it.
In a previous post I discussed playing more games and with this in mind we decided to revamp our scenery a little. Having three realm of battle boards and a load of mis matched scenery wasn’t very inspiring so after a quick post in a FB group off they all went to new homes. Replacing them will be a couple of mats from gamemat.eu and some of their pre-painted scenery to which we will add some of the new Mechanicus scenery and some other pieces. I am working on a post regarding scenery in games and it’s a big part of the experience for me so I am looking forward to seeing how it all looks on Monday.
Painting wise I have finished off my Domitar and started some basic work on my Macrocarid for my Mechanicum in between the commission work. I also acquired a large Tomb Kings force that I am going to try in Age of Sigmar. I have been reading up on Age of Sigmar and watching some online content and I am getting quite enthused by it. I’m planning armies and looking at the nuances of the tactics involved. The real threat is spreading myself to thin and not finishing anything so I organised my schedule a little as I also want to find a little time towards my Golden Demon entries which I feel pretty confident in after some thought.
I’ll be picking up the open war cards on Saturday and most likely the Generals Handbook but the unfortunate £58 cost of rebasing a Fantasy army may hinder that a little. I have been considering doing some product reviews but that feels like a very done thing at present so I would be interested to know if people would like to see them, I am also looking at video content but really want to keep a level of production quality which means it might be a little bit away as yet.
Well that’s it for now, let me know what you have been working on and send me some pics either here or on social media. Thanks for reading!
