End of the Year, 2020

I didn't score a Bingo on the wargame hobby bingo card, but I came pretty close. Here's a look back at my projects of 2020, and a look forward to what's in store for 2021.

Grimghast Reapers and Armies on Parade

After nearly a year on my painting shelf, and slowly working on them here and there, my Grimghast Reapers are finally ready for the battlefield. Although I won't be playing at the shop any time soon, I can at least include them in my Armies on Parade display!

Project Log: The Tombs of Tithing, Part 4

This week, I finished most of the tomb's exterior (I also gave up on any hope of having this project completed by Halloween). Here's a look at how the stairs and wall decorations came together:

New Soulblight Vampires? My Predictions

There has been a lot of speculation about some of GW's recent rumor engine images that appear to be undead-themed. GW's "Gridiron and Glory" reveal show didn't have anything about those rumor images, so the speculation continues. I'll throw my hat into the ring with my predictions:

Project Log: The Tombs of Tithing, Part 1

This is a project that has been a long time coming. I've wanted to build a set of elaborate tombs and catacombs, and GW's Bonetithe Nexus kit provided the last bit of inspiration to get the project off the ground. This series will follow my progress as I build the tombs.

Building a Better Barricade

This week, I finished up the assembly of some of the Flesh-eater Courts endless spells. I built the Cadaverous Baricade and the Chalice of Ushoran. I'm holding off on the Corpsemare Stampede because I'm not sure if I'll build it as the spell, or use it for a conversion.

Modeling Tutorial: Converting Gauss Reapers

If, like me, you've been collecting Necrons for a long time, you probably already have more than enough Necron Warriors and don't need to purchase more just to get a new weapon option. In this post, I'll show you how I converted some of my classic Necron Warriors to equip them with gauss reapers (with green rods, no less!) so you too will be able to update your army without re-buying all of your core troops.

Terrain Showcase: House and Statue Garden

These two little terrain projects are finished– Here's a look at the statue garden, and the house I made from the left over top of the Warscryer Citadel.

What's in the Project Queue? (September, 2020)

I've been working on painting the statue garden, and was hoping to have it finished this week. I'm still waiting for some Silflor foliage that I ordered, however, so I decided to post about some of the other projects I've got on my table, and throw a question to the audience to see what you'd like to see more of.

Statue Garden

In this post, I use some spare parts and pieces from the Sigmarite Mausoleum to build a little statue garden:

Fit For a (Ghoul) King

"Hey, I've got an idea– I'll throw together that Charnel Throne for the Flesh-eater Courts. It's just a small kit with 3 main components, and I can drybrush bones and stonework in my sleep, so I should be able to knock this out in a day or two and blog about it!"

–Rob Hawkins, 2 weeks ago

I never learn. There's no such thing as a "simple" project for me anymore. Everything turns into an intricate conversion or upgrade of the basic model, so here we go again...

New From Skull Forge Scenics: Trash Bins

A quick post to announce some new scenery in my Skull Forge Scenics store: www.skullforgescenics.etsy.com

A set of 10 resin trash bins, perfect scatter terrain for modern-era tabletop gaming like Marvel Crisis Protocol, or even sci-fi games like Infinity and 40K.

Terrain Showcase: The X-Mansion

This weekend, Atomic Mass Games announced their X-Men expansion for the Marvel Crisis Protocol miniatures game, and their launch video looked great– I love the new models! I've been waiting a few months to post images of the X-Mansion that I built for their photo shoot, so here's a look at the display board, and a peek at how I built it.

Modeling Tutorial: The Versatile Verminlord, Part 1

The Verminlord is one of the few Skaven models that I've never owned, so I decided to pick one up. I'm not sure which one I would want to field with any given army list, so I'm building it to be interchangeable with each of the five versions of the character. Here's a tutorial of how to do it:

Converting Immortals and Deathmarks

I've had my eye on the Immortal/ Deathmark kit for a while, and the imminent update to the Necron range seemed like the perfect opportunity to pick it up. Here's a look at how I was able to get both units out of the same kit (with some added spare parts, of course).

Lair of the Boneripper, The Second Attempt

After Selketta met an untimely fate at the hands of the Boneripper, I decided to take another crack at the Solo Campaign with a new hunting party:

Solo Campaign Battle Report: Lair of the Boneripper

I'm taking a break from working on scenery to try out the Troggoth Slayers solo Warhammer campaign that GW published on the Warhammer Community website– with a few modifications, of course...

Project Log: The Watchtower, Part 2

In this installment, I fill out the gaps in the plastic, and get a little closer to the final configuration of the watchtower:

Project Log: The Watchtower, Part 1

My 2018 Warscryer Citadel scenery project had used parts from two sets, and left me with almost an entire citadel-worth of components. These parts have been kicking around for long enough, so it's time to do something with them...

What's in the Project Queue? (March 2020)

I've been neglecting my blog for the past couple weeks as I finished up a scenery commission, but I have some time to take stock and figure out what to work on next...

Magnetized Carrying Cases

I've been looking for a transportation solution for my Nighthaunt army, and after seeing them in action, I'm completely sold on the idea of magnetic trays for carrying the miniatures. I put one together for myself, and thought I would share the process...

Ghastly Reinforcements

With the core of my Nighthaunt army finished, It's time for some reinforcements– Grimghast Reapers and Myrmourn Banshees, and I'll show you an easy way to prep the banshees for painting in sub-assemblies.

The Congregation of the Crimson Shroud

I've been working on the lore for my Nighthaunt army, the Congregation of the Crimson Shroud. Korak the Grim is one of my oldest characters, dating back to my 5th Edition Warhammer Fantasy Undead army. His story is a long one, and now it continues into the Age of Sigmar...
