Imperial Fists Contemptor #1

I’ll try to replace that techmarine head with another HH era style … Continue reading The road to Heresy Doubles 5 – Armoured support, 10 minute progress

Two paints I settled … Continue reading Hobby Progress – A dent in April

Once I get the rest of the army painted I may revisit this model. … Continue reading Hobby progress Feburary and March

Other projects

I’ve some other small projects on the go to give me different activities to do when I get bored of whatever I’m doing on the main project.
