There are currently three contributors to the blog, all who you'll meet in a moment. The blog was born from a desire to share our collective hobby projects and experiences, and to share ideas with the wider hobby community. Between us we cover a range of systems, like 40K/30K, Infinity, Dark Age, X-Wing, Bushido, and more!
So who will you be reading about? Its time to meet the guys and some examples of their work!
Hi folks, i go by the forum names Kahunadave or Kahuna and i'm a self confessed game whore!I feel much better admitting it out loud! Its the first step i'm told. You will see my main focus will be on Infinity and it's where i put the most effort in regards to my painting. You will see me paint other figures for a lot of other game systems as well!
Well start at the start, I have been a hobbies for 18+ years. Like most started out in the GW range, 40k and Warhammer Fantasy (and back when they did all the great range of specialist games which are now staring to get re-runs, yay).
That was my core hobby input till about 12-13 years ago when other ranges like Rackham's Confrontation came to the forefront (wow other companies do great sculpts too.) Since then it's hard not to look out on the web and find a new game coming to life, usually via the likes of Kickstarter, which is very dangerous to those impulse buyers with low willpower when it comes to great sculpts (I am one of those).
So for the present my "core" games are Infinity, Warmahordes and Malifaux, with others like bushido, Wrath of Kings and Relics also in the mix. The downside to all these great games, along with all the new enticements that make their way into the collection of games, I am also not a one faction guy so there is always more unpainted stuff left awaiting attention. Variety is great!
So far in the gallery are a range that have been painted both past and more recent. My painting goals now usually determined by what is the next upcoming event. March therefore has been mostly Infinity (Onyx) as preparation for the UK Games Expo, and some Skorne for a recent Warmahordes event at Worcester Wargames.
My hope for this blog being that others are inspired to get painting. I am by no means an expert on this subject, I am brush only, no cool stuff like air brushing. At the end of it all it's about being happy with what you have done, and as the old saying goes, practice makes your back ache!!
Hi all! I've been war gaming in one form or another since i was a kid (arguably still am!!) The bulk of my hobby life has been spent painting, collecting and playing Games Workshop systems such as 40K, Horus Heresy, and Battlefleet Gothic. Its only in the last 2 years or so that i have branched out into other game systems (largely due to Kahuna and Lukes help!) I concentrate on 30K Heresy and Infinity with the occasional game of X-Wing in there with the Misses.
I'm pretty excited about the potential Battle Fleet Gothic revamp, and also the upcoming re-launch of Epic (or whatever it'll be known as!) I've also got my eye on Dropfleet Commander and the super sweet models they've got!
I've recently started participating in Infinity tournaments which I've been enjoying. At heart though i'm more a painter than a player - which is the perfect excuse for loosing all the time!!
Below is some of my recent work, which you may have seen on my personal blog A Guardsmans Guide to Glory, which i will be posting on along with Infinitus Bellum.
That's the team! Make sure you add us to your blogroll and look out for tonnes of great content coming soon!
