The Crusaders revisited – SAGA 2nd edition review.

Hey there all peepz, squares, fellows, comrades, and pipsqueaks! Time for Alex, a new co-pilot here, to hijack the blog a little for a blast from the past! It’s been way too much cowardly hiding inside tanks and behind gun emplacements and the such lately here, so I’m going to bring back the glory-days where a man was brave bold and strong enough to face his foe eye-to-eye and smash and batter him until he was naught but pulp! Yup, SAGA is back on the agenda, and after a tournament set in the Crusades time-period I figured I’d do a review on the battleboard of the main show fraction, the Crusaders themselves!Read More »

Tanksgiving, resin treats, and the hobby road ahead.

Welcome back plastic crack-a-holics! After a short hobby hiatus I’m back with some new and exciting projects ahead of me. Those of you who follow my instagram account (FredandBrush) got the hint last week, and to the rest of you: check your gear and start digging those foxholes! In genereal, the next year will take me back to the beloved world of historical wargaming – and the second world war in particular. I will reveal the true scope of this project in an upcoming article, but in the meantime I wanted to share an unboxing and some thoughts on two resin tanks from Warlord Games.Read More »

Baby got Razorback – Vlka Fenryka army project log pt.9

Calling all warriors of Fanhalla! It’s been a while but lo and behold the Alpha is back at the paintstation. I will give a more thorough runthrough of my experiences from the last No Retreat tournament in Gibraltar – where my Wolves did quite good considering I had only played 3 games with the new codex prior to the event. In the meantime here are some pictures of my recently finished Razorback, and Rapier Quad Friend-Maker.Read More »

Hammer time! – Vlka Fenryka army project log pt.8

Hello wolfaholics and welcome back to the final Space wolves update before I fasten my seatbelt and travel to Gibraltar to attend the 7th No Retreat tournament! I have been procrastinating my Wulfen unit for a very long time, partly because I wanted to get the conversions right, but also because I have been afraid of laying my brush on them. Today I’m happy to show you the result of my latest weekend paintathlon. Buckle up, put on some MC Hammer and get ready to collect some skulls!Read More »

Speaker of the Dead and Great Company Ancient – Vlka Fenryka army project log pt.7

Hey again reader! I know I’m bothering you with nothing but Space Wolf content, but with the No Retreat 7 tournament around the corner all I’m doing right now is  #makingspacewolvesgreatagain. Another week have passed and this time I managed to finish my Runepriest/Speaker of the Dead, and a Company Ancient (or some sort of veteran) standard bearer. Here are some pictures!Read More »

Brothers in wolf – Vlka Fenryka project log pt.6

This weekend I managed to maul through another 10 power armored dudes for my Space Wolves army. I finally finished the lascannon Long Fangs, as well as another 5 Tacticals/Grey Hunters. I’m really enjoying the different painting stages and color palette for this army which helps a lot when you have so many marines to finish. Next up on the table is a unit of Wulfen to finish my No Retreat 7 army, and then I will probably  branch off deeper into 30k again with another Leviathan Dreadnought and some Rhinos. Here are some pictures of the finished units.

Avenger Strike Fighter in French WW1 blue

I have been painting a lot of blue armor over the past weeks! Not only for my Space Wolves army, but also for a good friend of mine who recently decided to commission me to paint all the vehicles for his Death Korps of Krieg. I have a weak spot for Forgeworld models, and Imperial ones in particular, so I had to take the offer. I was also very happy that he wanted his vehicles similar to the blue French WW1 uniform – heavily weathered ofcourse. In this article I will run you through how I painted the beautiful Avenger Strike Fighter from Forgeworld. Whether you want your vehicles blue or not, you can pretty much follow this tutorial using any other color.Read More »
