Ornithopter with WIP wings

I’m building another ornithopter, which will be fitted with solid wings. It’s a resin model moulded for me by Curtis of Ramshackle games. Now all I have to do is finish the wings, which are well underway, as you can see below.

The original model had insect style wings, which Curtis made for […]

Female Rogue Trader Mercenary

This rather elegant female mercenary is another one that has taken a couple of years from start to finish. To my mind, modern 40K doesn’t have nearly enough random aliens, abhumans and other such interesting and disparate inhabitants. I imagine the fringes of the Imperium to be packed with the sort of weirdness found in […]

Helsreach bikers

I thought I’d better get a post in before September became a completely blank month. Luckily I’ve just finished these bikers. The two bikes were put together about ten years ago and then kept in a box, as is standard practice for things that don’t quite get done before interest wanes and you move on […]

Inquisitor Cynole – ornithopter

One of the key elements for the Inquisitor Cynole game at BOYL last weekend was the ornithopter. The story snippet from the original Chapter Approved that this game was based on describes it as follows “The ‘thopter was a local model, ancient and noisy, the dull beat of its engines drowning any attempt at conversation”.

Natives for Inquisitor Cynole

Most forces in the game are being supplied by the players themselves. The only major player controlled force I’m supplying are these feral world natives. I thought about these for a long time before buying the models. The temple itself has an Aztec vibe, so initially I thought along those lines, but it seemed a […]

Inquisitor Cynole playtest photos

A couple of weeks behind schedule, I’ve finally set up for the scenario playtest for the Inquisitor Cynole game. I was starting to worry a bit, but I’ve really pushed on in the last few weeks. Last weekend I printed out a draft set of the temple floorplans, finished the first draft of the […]

Inquisitor Cynole scenario – background

The ‘thopter was a local model, ancient and noisy, the dull beat of its engines drowning any attempt at conversation. Dr Moenkhaus gestured to the ground.

‘That’, he said ‘is the main logging zone. You can see the loggernauts if you look closely’. Inquisitor Cynole peered from the cabin window. Far below he could […]

Rogue trader – raid on illegal crops

A few photos from a Rogue Trader scenario that Rowan has been putting together. The Imperial Guard are raiding a farm where criminals have been growing wheat. This is of course illegal in the 41st millenium, due to its use in the highly addictive foodstuff known as “cheese toasties”. In the central building are a […]

Trading Guilder

I am working on a scenario for BOYL 2016 called “Inquisitor Cynole and the Temple of Gloom”. It’s based on a snippet from the Book of the Astronomicon – read more about it on the Oldhammer forum here.

One of the factions is the “Trading Guild” and I have just painted this as a potential […]

Highway to New Rynn City

A month or so ago, a grand plan formed in my mind. Inspired by “Operation Crossfire“, I’m hoping to organise an event this autumn where lots of separate games are played simultaneously as part of a single campaign. As many games as possible will be organised to occur on that day in remote locations. There […]
