Hobby update 2018 Week 4

Greetings all, welcome to week 4 of the year and my hobby update! It's been a quieter week this week I'm afraid due to real life - I've changed jobs and started at my new place today. What that means is I spent much of the weekend either celebrating with people I've know for as many as 15 years, or recovering from those celebrations/preparing for commuting to work for the first time in my life. Still, things progressed and continue to do so!

Painting update


Here's the last part of my daemons commission, just need to get them based now (need to remind myself of the basing recipe!)

Craftworld Mael Dannan

 Here's the first painting wave for the Craftworld Eldar, from Mael Dannan. This constitutes a squad of six windriders with shuriken catapults, a vyper jetbike with shuriken cannon and a Farseer Skyrunner

The riders will get blended green armour to match the designs on the jetbikes, but I've only just started getting paint on them.

The bikes themselves however are coming along really nicely, though as ever with bikes, no matter how many details you seem to do, there are always more to finish!

The farseer is getting pretty close to being done however, there are several elements of this that I'm really proud of so far, particularly the sword, the helmet and the canopy design.

Here's the helmet detail in close-up, plus some of the fine details I've added to the ghosthelm crest and the faceplate.

Terrain update

So, the first full board for the Grim Dark Brotherhood is now ready for play, with me having finished work on the roadways on this ruined cityscape (there are more city inserts where the black sections are).

Gaming update

Well it's top secret isn't it, because this week saw the first game of the new Golovin Campaign! Keep your eyes peeled for the narrative write up coming soon (hopefully this week, RL permitting)
