About this blog

I've tried many times to start a WIP thread...and every time I've gotten sidetracked by other stuff and never really kept it updated. So with the new blogs feature I thought it'd be a good idea to consolidate my various hobby efforts under a single "banner". As such, this will be something of a mishmash of my various projects, from full armies to mini-warbands to singular models. Hopefully I remember it exists!

It's not doodling, it's art!

One of my other hobbies aside from not finishing models is drawing. I do it quite a lot, enough that the majority of my Instagram entries are weird concept sketches for Tyranids.   Anyway, I thought I'd share a few of them on the B&C. There's a lot more than this, but I need to scan and upload it all.   Some weird Tyranid creatures- a "Scorchgaunt" carrying a flamespurt, a bio-plasma spore mine, a Carnifex intended as a ranged version of the Screamer-Killer and a mo

They live!

Success! My termagant sculpts have been printed, and they're delightful! I still need to sculpt some weapons for them, but they work with the plastic gaunt weapons as a stop-gap. This was quite a learning experience, and I hadn't quite appreciated just how...spindly they would be. On the plus side, Elegoo ABS-Like 2.0 is very durable and they don't feel like they're going to break. In hindsight I'll not add quite so many tiny bits in future as they're just so small that they get

From the gestation chambers they came...

More 3D stuff is abound- I've been working on some definitely-positively-100%-not-termagants for printing. They're going to be poseable, with ball-sockets at the hips, waist, tail, neck and shoulders (all four of them) and plenty of alternate parts. So far I have the core body, legs and tails.   The main arms should be compatible with the official gaunt kit parts (so you can put printed arms on plastic bodies and vice versa).   All the parts so far in an e

Bzzzzzzzzzzzz!

Having finally acquired a 3D printer- to be exact an Elegoo Mars 3 Pro- I've been having fun testing it out. I've done three prints so far, the first being the default rook models, followed by a few Tyranid things from MyMiniFactory, including Hive Delta's free Carnifaux body (which is awesome!). However, I was itching to try and print something I'd made myself, so I went a bit mad and sculpted up 5 'niddy beetle wing sets in the span of a few hours. I then printed 4 of them (one was

It Came from the Bitz Box!

The Zoanthrope/Venomthrope kit might be one of the most ridiculously economical kits GW has ever made. Regardless of what you build you'll get a tonne of spares. I found this out to my great delight after making some rather wacky converted venomthropes... ...And discovered that with the mere application of a genestealer chest (and puttying over the vent attachment points) I could still make some perfectly adequate zoanthropes! However, there is still one more unit that you

Resin BAWKSES!

You may be aware that I have a keen interest in 3D printing. I still don't have a printer yet (intend to get a Mars 3 Pro) but I thought I might as well make a head start on some things to print when I do.   My initial projects have been a bit all over the place. For instance I dove in at the deep end and tried modelling up an entire Hierophant...   I later dialed things back a little and started work on a modular goblin kit (which will include 40K gretchin parts)...

Oh good lord! I made a Space Marine!

What goes around comes around, it seems...After having started the hobby with Tyranids, and having joined this forum doing Chaos Space Marines, I am now finding myself making the subject of this forum's origins- a loyal servant of the Emperor, a Space Marine! This was largely done on account of getting the Firestrike Turret as a gift from a friend, who knew I liked 40K but didn't really know much about it. Whilst the turret itself is an immeasurably helpful source of gun/turret-y bits, the
