Gothic Armoured Nuns Kickstarter


Roll up, roll up for a Warrior Nuns inspired Kickstarter from Anvil.

I'm in for a pledge to tide me over until GW deliver the Sisters of Battle in 2019.  I see no reason why Sisters can't have different variants of power armour. It might even get me back into repainting some of my stripped down original metal models.

Return To The Donkey Sanctuary


As the project that will not go away continues, I hit on the idea of spicing up the Sanctuary model with donkeys. 

Stepping forward to the Bed Skat of Preparation are five of Magister Militum's 28mm finest. 


Rush job required on these. Back to work tomorrow.

House Mortan Walks.

Another rush job complete while I'm on another flying visit to the UK but four Armigers complete with just some tidying up to do.
 
Now, where are those 20 Skitarii?

Daddy, When I Grow Up...

...can I have an Avenger gatling cannon?
 
That's the broad brush trial scheme for the first Armiger complete.
 
Dependant on the Codex, there may be some tinkering to do based on any potential rank structure amongst the Armigers but I'm happy so far.

Giant Freaking Robots....

...as the GW advertising declared.
 
Oh well, two copies of Forgebane later and I have a head start on the new Knight Codex.
 
Four Armigers ready to join House Mortan along with the two Knights already built and, more than likely, one of the new Castellan Knights.

The Donkey Sanctuary!

I don't know if anybody thought I was joking but I give you... 

The Donkey Sanctuary. 

This is being put together to help my daughter out with the project for her animal care course. 

The plywood has been covered in chinchilla dust (bathing sand not ground down critters. It's my basing material of choice) and PVAd to seal the sand in.  The buildings are basic foam board.  The roofs are out of shot being painted. 











It's early days and there are refinements and painting to do but I never thought I'd ever model up  a gift shop or donkey isolation area (as in medical isolation not punishment routines).  

Of course I'm now tempted to do my own home brew version of the recent Wild Geese prison camp Kickstarter:
 
 
and available soon at retail from Sally 4th:
 
 
 
One the project is done, I could always reclaim the boards back as Rough Rider stables......

Other Projects On The Go....


Well, if it wasn't for pesky sunshiney but bloody freezing weather I could have got more done....





What else is on the go?

Terrain and an easy build Primaris Dreadnought!






 
Tomorrow I'll show some top line Donkey Sanctuary modelling I kid you not!
