It’s no holiday for Skorne and Khador

This week I am on holiday with the family in sunny France. I’ve already lost to the wife at Carcassonne but hope to get her into a game of Eden later in the week. So in good journalist fashion I will point in the direction of the work of a fellow Big ‘Uner (wargame club near Bristol that I play at).

Here is Nurgleonbass’ blog. Take look at the rest of it as he has some great stuff on it.

Nurgleonbass Skorne vs Khador

P.s. I am the headless guy behind the Skorne army.


Skorne Bronzeback

Now I am going to post a series of pictures of my Bronzeback, taken whilst painting him. He is a beast and was a pleasure to paint.


This is him with an undercoat and minus his arms and tusks. I thought I’d paint him like this to make access a little easier.


He’s got a bit of base coat on now


This is what he looked like from the rear. His arms are in the foreground, in the background is a Titan (my first big beast) and a part painted Praetorian Swordsman.

Some gold has been added

Now with arms

And tusks, now watch out……..




And if that’s not enought to frighten you, here’s one with all his Titan mates….



Photo upgrades

I’ve just had a chance to test a new gizmo purchased from Amazon. It’s called a Camera Connection Kit and cost about 4 quid. Here’s a picture of it…


It allows me to upload photos from a better camera than the one on the iPad. Ive got some pictures here from a Panasonic Lumix TZ7….

It’s a picture from Salute 12. These guys were helping to collect money for Help for Heroes – quite persuasive;-)

Hmm I’ve just taken a look and like the result. Much better than the iPad ones. I’ll try some more. First is Mikio, a Bushido model (not mine) it was my favourite model from Salute. I am utterly amazed by the tattoos. Unfortunately the photo is a bit shakey, sorry.

This is a better shot of the Skorne Warlock, Xerxis.

Theses are all my painted Skorne Warlocks, pMorghoul, pMakeda, Xerxis and eMakeda, in the IKEA display case.



Display case in place

So I was down in IKEA today and bought a glass display cabinet. A few hours and a couple of Allen keys later and here it is….


And here’s a closer shot. You may notice that it’s not overborne with figures at present. I hope to get creative and arrange some of my models soon. When I’m happy with it I’ll post another photo.



Xerxis and Praetorian Unit Attachment

Here are my latest paint jobs. Need to varnish them for the tabletop and add a bit of basing decorations.


And here is Skorne’s Xerxis…



What’s this all about?

Well I have finally entered the blogosphere. I am following the example of some mates at from the Bristol Big’uns wargaming club who also write blogs. I will attach a link to these once I get the hang of things.

I intend to post wargaming related material and want to ‘borrow’ my wife’s iPad for editing and photographic purposes. I hope the on board camera works OK as I am unsure how to easily upload jpegs from my other cameras. I shall experiment, now how do I insert photos?

So I have just downloaded the iPad app and am now typing on it. I’ve taken some pictures of some Skorne models I am currently painting. I’m now trying to work out how to post them….
