Infinity - Aleph - Steel Phalanx - 2 Finished models from the starter and a Netrod.

I haven't made a lot of progress on the Tyranids over the last couple of weeks, I've had a bit of a lack of motivation after pushing to finish a bunch of Termagants and I've gotten stuck on the Hive guard for now so I have decided to take a break and finally paint some Infinity models that I have been sitting on since they were released. 

These were pretty easy paint jobs, I primed them black, did a tan/bone zenithal base coat, hit them with some boltgun metal to break up the white before finishing the models with 5 different washes and doing some pure white highlights..These three were about 5 hours total, which is a really short timeframe for me. Particularly nice as I've messed up my dominant hand in a scrap the other week so I'm struggling with holding the brush at the moment. The struggle is real, yikes!

Should have the other four guys finished soon for my 150pt list so I can get playing again. I love the 40k universe but the game of Infinity is next level, it's nice to have both though so when you want to play skirmish or large scale war game.

They look fab :) love the subtle blending you have achieved with the washes and zenithal basecoat. I am hooked on Infinity too. It really is good to have more than one game to play and paint as it can be very refreshing to switch systems when stuck in a rut or feeling blue about a particular game or army

Absolutely man, thanks for checking in too (sorry it took a while to respond).

I can't wait to get playing again, I think playing the 500pts of combat patrol in 40k has really highlighted to me what a broken system it is as far as balance goes (which everyone is well aware of by now). It is great still for the larger scale games but noticing that really spurs me on to start playing infinity again.

Acastus Knight Porphyrion COMPLETED!!!!!

Acacstus Knight Porhpyrion, easily the biggest and most complex kit build and paint job I have ever done for a gaming miniature. I'm really happy with the result but the 60 hrs I spent on getting it finished kinda baked my noodle. I have no idea how the titan painters get through it! Anyway here are some studio shots, let me know what you think!













Horus Heresy Event Pics - Skulls October 2018

Hey my dudes,

I played at our bi-anually held 'Skulls' Heresy event on the weekend, I didn't get a whole heap of pictures as I always seemed to go full time in my games while we rolled dice and had a good fun bit of banter. It was the most low key iteration of this event I've been to so far, players were largely allowed to choose their game style, points level and table theme and just get after it each round.


I ended up playing a great 1500pt opening game against one of the young bloods, Pat. He was running Iron Hands and the scenario basically had my forces ambushed and deployed in a random fashion with a D6 sending them to one of six 24" squares. I managed to intercept a few things at the right time to give me some breathing room but I had a really hard time hurting his troops and walkers with the -1 to the shooting strength of my weapons. I ended up running away with the victory though in the end, having so many troops who were able to capture the objectives on…

Gaslands Tabletop Game - Hot Wheels Conversion 1 WIP

Hey Dudes,
Gaslands, a post-apocalyptic car combat miniatures game where you take Hot Wheels, or Matchbox 1/64 scale toy cars and convert/paint them up for the theme. I heard about it on the Secret Cabal Gaming Podcast and checked out a bit of the action on Instagram and was really blown away by the concept and the review the boys gave the game. I bought the rules and had a read through and I loved the template style movement, the gear sections which are like phases for each round are a really cool system and the combat seems good. 
I got this monster truck and maybe 10 cars, I didn't want to go too hardcore on the guns and shit just yet, I also figure a monster truck should probably be about ripping around running shit down and doing jumps so I've gone with extra armour and maybe a few hidden upgrades like nitrous. I'll paint two teams up and get a battlefield terrain setup done so I can try and convince my mates to get into it and see where it goes.
As the Secret Cabal …
