Nerd Day 2021

In September we managed to hold the 4th 'Nerd Day' weekend. Some mate and I got together for a weekend and played a number of games. Here's some photos from the weekend:

2021 Review

Whilst I didn't make any blog posts last year I did manage some progress so here's a quick post to cover my hobby progress in 2021. 

38 models. Not a great achievement really... but there's more to my hobby journey in 2021 than just that headline number. 


First of all, during the first part of the year, I achieved one of my long term hobby goals and FINALLY finished my Nurgle's Rotters Blood Bowl team. I'm very happy with how they came out and will post about them soon. After that team though things went downhill a bit when I agreed to take up a 2nd commission. Essentially I found commission painting provided zero enjoyment so a mere 8 models took me about 5 months! Bad times.

After that I turned my attention to some quick, easy and fun Endless Spells to help me get my groove back... and it worked nicely! After those, I moved on to working on updating my AoS scenery collection. None of that work is detailed in the list but it took 3/4 months of effort and the results are great, again I'll post about this work soon!

The final thing I want to cover is the work I put into my 'new' Blood Angel army. This work started in September and I spent circa 80-100 hours airbrushing 90 odd models as a batch project. These models are now ready for me to home in and work on the squads individually.

Anyways, as I didn't post anything for about 18 months I've plenty of 'content' to post about so hopefully lots to come.

2020 Review

 Most of my posts in 2020 were lined up before I made much hobby progress and then I didn't post anything on the blog once the pandemic hit. So this post is a bit of a cover all for what I managed to paint up in 2020.


Gloomspit Gitz

My first project of 2020, a Squig slow grow army. I didn't finish the army, and in the end sold them on eBay to raise funds. Overall, I bloody loved painting these models and I think they are some of, if not the best set of models/units I've managed. 





The Dark Times... COVID Lockdown

During the first lockdown, I was out of work for a few months and turned my attention to gaming (whilst looking for work of course!). So, I spent time playing WoW and Albion Online instead of hobbying. However, I did start working on some bases for the 'new' Blood Angel models I've now started working on in 2022. Here's some pics of that early basing activity.











Commission Work

Towards the end of 2020, I was approached by a chap who'd bought some of my Blood Angels on eBay, wanting some of the new Indomitus box models painted up the same as the models he'd bought.

I ended up doing 2 sets of models, the first being 10 Assault Intercessors and a Chaplain. I don't seem to have any photos saved for the models other than this one below! Perhaps an indication of how much I enjoyed the experience :D

Blood Angels Primaris Assault Marines

 

I ended up selling on the Blood Angels I painted up a couple of years ago... they just didn't turn out as good as I wanted so figured best to flog 'em and start again.

Its been a long process and I'll post to cover the steps so far but this is the first unit of this new Blood Angel scheme I've finished. And arent they cool!

Happy New Year anyone who reads this! All the best for 2022

GW New York & Toronto Stores

In May/June 2019 I travelled to New York and Toronto... and took the chance to visit the local GW stores in those 2 great cities!

I picked up the Gobbapalooza from New York and the Gloomspite Gitz battletome from Toronto. Both were great, vert welcoming stores but I have to say, Toronto was one of the best I've been able to visit. Loads of gaming tables, well laid out and an exceptionally lovely manager.
