In the immortal words of Dr. Nick - Hi everybody!

As you may have noticed posting on this blog is becoming more and more erratic. This is actually only partly to do with the fact that I'm not doing as much painting and converting as I did a few years ago - though that's certainly part of the story. The main reason however is that google has more or less stopped supporting the blogger platform. I used to be able to do quick posts on the fly from my iPhone or tablet, which was quick, easy and worked great (or at least worked). 
But without updated apps this is sadly no longer possible. Which means posting nowadays means intentionally sitting down at a computer and writing a blog post. Which is less spontaneous. Which means it happens less frequently. 

We'll see what the future brings - I'll keep this blog for a while but I am toying with the idea of moving on to some other platform or simply starting up a convertorum facebook page. I do like the blog format though - it's easy to navigate and works as a diary of sorts. There's a sense of continuity to a blog that facebook and other social media lacks.

I have been busy though. This weekend saw a few scandiwegians - all of them, except me, named Alexander for some reason - travelling to Nottingham to hang out with Tim Molloy, Peter Hudson/PDH and the one and only John Blanche for a game we called "Colossi of Rhossum Secundus". Other hobbyists like Helge of WilhelMiniatures fame and The Polysmith (check out his outstanding conversions here:, pitched in with some lovely miniatures, but couldn't make it to the actual game.

The game itself was all about a bunch of desperate warbands duking it out on the abandoned forgeworld Rhossum Secundus. A running theme was the inclusion of colossi - huge lumbering machines that the warbands had, or tried to take, control over. We played the game on one of the magnificent custom built battlefields at Warhammer World. It was crazy, amazing and a whole barrel of laughs, even though my Inquisitrix and her band of merry squats didn't manage to do very much at all except mildly annoying Pete's armiger robot. This won't be a write up of the battle but I´ll leave you with a few photos of the proceedings. More to come. Eventually...

And then some random snapshots of the mayhem. Did I mention the colossi were huge?
They. Are. HUUUUGE!!!

Next up will be some spooky new models that got sent to me by GW as part of the early reviewer scheme.

It'll be a post guaranteed to haunt you. 
At night.
