Jetbike Jackal

A short post this week – just one miniature which I finished at the very end of 2022 (but which had been half-painted on my hobby table for a few months before that). It’s another reinforcement for my genestealer cult, Tertii Imperatoris Cultus, and… Continue Reading “Jetbike Jackal”

These Seem Familiar…

After last week’s modern genestealers, I’m back to familiar territory (see what I did there?) this week with two old genestealer cult magi and their tiny psychic shadows. I painted all of these over Christmas 2022 and January 2023, choosing them partly for speed… Continue Reading “These Seem Familiar…”

Hocus Locus

I’ve had a few difficult months – successive family emergencies, jury service, a new job, and (touch wood) soon I’ll be moving house. So there hasn’t been much hobby time recently, and the thought of sitting down and writing has filled me with existential… Continue Reading “Hocus Locus”

Wee Free Folk

Over the past few years I’ve bought a lot of miniatures, from a lot of different sources. I try to support small or new companies, because I want them to do well (and I like having a variety of different things to paint). And… Continue Reading “Wee Free Folk”

Lewis, The Satyr, 1919 While rearranging some shelves last week, I realised that I’d painted quite a few miniatures last year (and indeed, done… Continue Reading “Horns and Cloven Feet”

They have no bodies, and they move slowly through outrageous angles…God, they are breaking through! They are breaking through! “ Frank Belknap Long,┬áThe… Continue Reading “Necron-omicon”

New Members in the Cult

I’m on something of a roll painting genestealers (and their proxies) for the Cult of the Third Party Emperor. I think the last two posts were a bit too photo-heavy, so here’s a third with just a few new (and old) miniatures from the… Continue Reading “New Members in the Cult”

Hive Fleet Mastodon / Xenofauna

It was inevitable, I suppose, that when I began collecting and painting genestealers and genestealer-like miniatures I’d also get sucked into some tyranids. It started with re-basing my ambull (mostly because I’d become dissatisfied with the base). Then I got fear of missing out… Continue Reading “Hive Fleet Mastodon / Xenofauna”

Tertii Imperatoris Cultus

I’m not sure if I’m so much back after another long absence, or if this is just another in an emerging pattern of long, image-heavy posts with months between them. Let’s get straight into it. about a year ago my friend Owen asked if… Continue Reading “Tertii Imperatoris Cultus”

Back from the Dead

After last month’s return to blogging (and last year’s efforts at terrain making) it is at long last time to post some painted miniatures. And what better way to celebrate my return from the dead that with a couple of undead – Heinrich Kemmler… Continue Reading “Back from the Dead”
