WARLORD - Wrapping up the legs!

It has taken a little while, but I finally have the next video ready to go! In this one I pin the knee and hip joints, glue down the hip rings, and add the hip pistons. There is also more (off-screen) blood spilled for the resin gods ; )

I hope you enjoy this latest installment. If you'd like to see them more often, please consider becoming a patron by visiting my Patreon campaign, HERE.

AdeptiCon Registration opens today!

So, I completely spaced on letting you all know about the classes I'm running at AdeptiCon 2016, but hopefully you'll see this before the cart goes live later today.

I'm running my Liber Metallica class (a revised version of last year's offering) twice on Thursday - 9:30-11:30am and 2:30-4:30pm - as well as Liber Titanicus (about painting Titans, Knights and Lords of War, including the reveal of my Warlord Titan!) at 5:00-7:00pm.

There are plenty of other great hobby classes too, taught by some of the best in the business. Make sure you get in early.

I'm not sure exactly when it all goes live, but check things out HERE for all the details.

See you at the show!

WARLORD - A slight hiccup...

As many of you will know, when there are few posts on this blog, it generally means I'm incredibly busy with work or Real Life™. Well, that's the current situation. Busy.

I posted this photo on my Instagram account recently, hoping that the following day I'd be able to film a video of me drilling into the "already glued" knee and hip joints to reinforce them with some brass rod I purchased on Tuesday. Well, everything seemed solid enough as I went to bed, but when I descended the stairs to my office/basement I was greeted by a disheartening sight. I must not have mixed the two-part epoxy glue well enough and the hips and one thigh had decided to fall off the model. Last night I decided to start again with this section of the legs. I've glued the thigh back on to the leg and, when I'm sure everything is cured properly, I'll glue the pelvis back in place. Once that's done, I'll shoot the planned video.

Thanks for your patience. It's a slight hiccup, but I'll be back on track soon.

Mechanicum - The Knights of House Taranis

Continuing my "clearing the decks" approach to my hobby recently, I have finished off another three Imperial Knights to now take my 30K House Taranis Knights up to five (also known as a "Half-Rudge" of Knights*). Just a quick post today, as I have to run soon, but please post any questions you might have in the comments below : )

Above is my Baron Prime - Forge Master Tacitus Agrippa, riding his Knight Gallant, Olympicus Rex. 

Baron Agrippa's bodyguard is Ser Baledin Lange, riding his Cerastus-Knight Lancer, Shield of the Omnissiah.

This is Ser Maarku Radcliff, riding his Knight Crusader, Torrent of Fire.

I have also made the battle cannon of Torrent swappable for a thermal cannon, incase I feel the need for additional close range devastation ; )

In this shot you can see my 30K-era House Taranis crest. I've described the retro-creation of the crest in an earlier post, but can't seem to find it at the moment. I'll link to it when I can find it.

And here's the Torrent's right shoulder markings. Again, the Taranis icon has been retro-fitted for 30K use. These two 30K decals are both custom jobs from Fallout Hobbies. They arrived on Thursday, and I'm very pleased with them indeed (although Ron is probably cursing me a little). Anyway, head on over to the Fallout Hobbies site and check out everything they have to offer!

Here is Ser Vadik Faustino, riding his Knight Paladin Deus Malleus. This was actually the very first Knight I painted for myself : )

And finally, you can see Ser Tanner Malcom, riding his Knight Errant Ignis Mechanica.

I hope you like them : )


* Paul Rudge was the first person to put together a collection of one of each of the Knight patterns available, caused the Internet to dub such a collection or gathering a "Full Rudge" of Knights.

WARLORD - The Base has arrived!

Last night my base arrived from Ironheart Artisans. Excellent stuff. Alex worked speedily and shipped it out last Friday so that I would have it before my trip to Atlanta this week. I was so excited that I figured I'd put to gather a quick (for me) video about it.

Take a look at the simplicity that will make my life so much easier : )


PS. see you all again on Friday ; )
