2015 recap

While slowly digesting last nights humongous christmas dinner, I thought I'd look back on this years output of miniatures. 

In 2015 my hobby mojo have oscillated wildly and during the fall I took my first (and much needed) long break from modelling since the conception of this blog. 
Despite this almost three month hiatus I still managed to crank out a total of exactly 30 painted conversions (of which three are much bigger models than my usual fare). Not too shabby all things considered. 

The year started in the sign of papa Nurgle with a small chaos warband led by the ignominious Mawgut Gloop. It was a lot of fun going back to Warhammer Fantasy and taking cues from the old Realm of Chaos books. Later this year I also did a Tzeentchean champion. 


Unfortunately the Old World was rather unceremoniously killed off this summer - but that's another story...

Meanwhile in the world of the 41st millenium, the release of the Adeptus Mechanicus was the biggest event - and the stellar new kits have had a huge influence on most of my models with round bases. I've built a pretty large mechanicus warband (at least for inquisimunda) with two big robots, several smaller automatons, cyborgs, servitors and a rather nasty looking Magos. Recently I've started work on a Dark Mechanicvm gang dedicated to Nurgle (obviously my favourite chaos god) repurposing some older models and building new ones. 


The year started with Slaanesh and harlequins though with the three models I made for the Iron Sleet Invitational. I've also made a few non-mechanicus imperial servants and two Xenos (which was my original idea for the Iron Sleet project). 
 
The plan for next year include more fantasy as me Alexander and Erik AKA Nordic will play a few realm of chaos inspired in february using the new Chaos Champion Warband rules for Age of Sigmar. More mechanicvm of course - both loyalist and traitorous (and somewhere in between).
Then there's a big and exiting project soon to be announced...

And with that I bid you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Speaking of christmas I recieved a very special present from my buddy Kraut a few days ago. 


Head on over to Eternal Hunt to get the full story:

  1. 30 models at this quality in only 9 months is quite good imo :) I did guess that you would be part of the big surprise so I must admit I'm rather excited by what you guys have in store!
    Btw, where are those Chaos Champion rules for AoS?

    1. Cheers mate!
      The "Path to Glory" rules can be downloaded from the Black Library here: http://www.blacklibrary.com/all-products/aos-path-to-glory.html

    2. Do you just need the first document you linked for this, or do you need the full "campaign bundle" thing? Seems like half of that is painting guides and the rest are missions maybe?

      Definitely interested in trying this myself if the full rules are contained in the first document only.

    3. The standard version for four quid should suffice. It's got all you need to roll up a warband and play a campaign.

  2. Lovely stuff - only just stumbled across your work (via Kraut), and I've really enjoyed the discovery! Keep on trucking dude, you do great things, really inspirational, and I'm looking forward to seeing what you put out over the next 12 months. Oh, and I now know what to ask my wife to get me for my birthday - a copy of your book ;-)

  3. Another great year of modelling! 30 miniatures is really impressive, especially considering they are wonderfully converted! Your Tzeentchean champion is one of my favorite; I love his shield!

    Great to see the converted goblin from Krautscientist! He is fantastic. :)

    Looking forward to seeing what you work on this year!

    1. Cheers Adam! The tzeentchii champ was a lot of fun but I doubtvhe'll get any followers any time soon - the call of Nurgle is just too strong...

      I was so happy when Kraut sent that goblin over - it really is a perfect rendition of the sketch I made for him.
