Welcome to Hell!

So, I guess this is where I tell you this is my blog, and it is pretty much all about painting miniatures, and gaming with miniatures, and spending huge sums of money on miniatures. It may also include pictures of miniatures, and I'll even try and make sure they are painted.


The following material is bound to be laced with profanity. If you are offended by words like cock and arse, you may wish to avoid browsing whilst your mother is in the room. If words like shite and fuck offend you, then you may wish to hit the 'back' button on your browser. If liberal use of the word cunt offends you, how the fuck did you get this far?

Going legit...

OK, well, it is still pretty much a work in progress, but plans have been put into motion...


Gaming armies, by gamers, for gamers.

Still have to add a few bits and bobs, and sort out decent photos, but it is definitely a start.

This is the new shit.


Mantic Abyssal Dwarfs.

Released on the 25th Feb.

How good am I, it's only the 18th now. Speedpainter indeed.

This thing is deader than my army...

OK, I hold my hands up to it, very few updates recently.

I do have my excuses. Errrrr, reasons.

Working loads in January before I finished up on Leave, 3rd daughter born first week of February, rotation of snatched sleep, wiping shitty arses and painting like a demon since.

Taking a cue from me, Elli feeds at 3am, so, rather than being woken up, I just stay up until then, to save any guttural outbursts when the lights are switched on. Immune system fucked, temper shot to shit, painting progress progressing.

So, 365 Mantic models this year, and I've already managed 100 in Jan. One of the Fanatics on Warseer, lord marcus challenged me that he could paint 200 models in Feb before I could. Oh, the naivety of youth. So, having been burning the candle at both ends, and refusing to play the xbox on the wee TV, after daughter #2 put a cup through her second widescreen in 6 months... I've managed a fair bit. 151 models to date. That is this month alone. NOT including the 100 previously completed.

Oh yes, I am a fucking god. Or lunatic.

Here is what 120 Zombies look like

The Dead will walk.

Well, that'll be all 68 Undead models from the Mhorgoth's Revenge box painted up then.

Not bad going for 19 days so far.

Time for an update.

Wow, I'm almost becoming a regular at this...

So, my plan for the year was to paint 365 Mantic models, an average of 1 a day for 2011. I wasn't going to stick to any one army, just mix it up a little, adding more to my Dwarf army, and starting my Undead and Elves, plus the Khaos Dwarfs when they are released, and probably Orcs and whatever else we see this year.

I figured I'd start with the Mhorgoth's Revenge box as a good entry point into the madness. Less than 2 weeks into the year and I've already finished 20 Skeleton Warriors, 10 Ghouls and a Balefire Catapult plus 2 Skeleton Crew. I have a unit of 20 Revenants primed and ready to go, and am mostly done on a unit of 15 Zombies. Not bad going if I say so myself.

There is the small matter of a pre-release Hellpit Abomination to paint for GW Falkirk before the 15th, and my Ogres for Warseer's Tale of Fantasy Painters, then I can really focus on the Undead. Hopefully, I can have the 2 units finished for the end of the month, meaning that that is the complete Undead contents of the Mhorgoth's Revenge box done.
