My 40K Prospects for the 2020 Season.

Well we’re getting close to 2020…. er, I guess I should say we’re a few months INTO 2020, and I haven’t seemed to fall in love with anything I’m playing. I like to rant with the assistance of pictures, so let’s have a look at what I’m painting, and considering. First up the joke that has become the Custodes. I

Hobby Update of the Damned: New Thousand Sons, and a Sorcerer.

It’s been a while since I’ve been able to update with some new painted stuff. These aren’t the best pictures but the timing is good since the release of “Ritual of the Damned” (Book 4 in the Psychic Awakening series). Starting with the man himself; Ahriman. He took a lot longer than I wanted, but he’s pretty much in every

Eldar Craftworlds: Do Wraith Units Work? 10 Game Competitive Summary over the Christmas Break.

Well this little piece comes as a reminder, to myself as much as anyone, how my Eldar seem to function from the point of view of getting Wraith units to work. The core of the list is loosely the following: 2, and then 1 squad of Wraiths (now on foot, x10 with Axe and Shield). 3 Vibro Cannons. (Cheap and

Adeptus Custodes Hobby Update. Valoris, Virtus Praetors and Custodian Guard Pictures.

An Update of an Instant Classic. I love the Custodes background. All of it. The novels, the models, the playstyle, etc. But what can turn into a grind is doing the gold ‘properly’. For me I’m always looking for ways of aging the gold in a ‘classic’ appearance without diminishing the stunning effect that an army of gold can look

Hobby Update: Finished Custodes, and some Ultramarines Impulsor WIPs.

These bikes just took me forever to finish. Don’t be like me and restart a project 3 times. The temptation to sell sometimes is great, and I need to stop doing it (at least on stuff I’m going to restart)! And now a few touch ups finish off my Telemon Dreadnaughts: And some Ultra updates: Thanks for checking in. -Prot.
