I know next to nothing about the history of 40k (always being a fantasy nerd), but it wouldn't surprise if that was the case back when GW was very tongue-in-check, and they have subsequently tried their best to forget it ever happened as they tried to make the setting more grimdark.

Latest work

Have to apologise for the lack of updates. Is not from any lack of work on my behalf, but because it has all been in service of non empire (or even fantasy) related things like Night Lords



And now sisters of battle



The empire/fantasy urge will return. Soon. Ish. Possibly

How does everyone paint the new Sisters kits. I have a few and I've put them on hold as i'm unsure if i can paint their legs with those pesky, billowing robes being in the way

They are very fiddly, but not overly so like some other GW kits. I quite like them, but they do take time to paint. Took about a week to do their rhino



Also painted up some random minis for Christmas presents. The mouse cleric is from dark sword minis and is easily my favourite.

Just some more random Christmas presents painted up. Is nice to do some different things, try out new approaches and clear out a bit of the back log

Love the wizard on dragon ... a wonderful painting effort made on that, congrats!

Those landsknecht handgunners are awesome too!

The drunk dwarf reminds me of one of the animatronic dummies at the Glenrowan Ned Kelly museum

I have no idea! It was a freebie added to an order, so no idea of what it is meant to be

I painted up some legion imperialias guys for fun. A friend for scale

I've noticed more people turning the Legion Imperialis kits into silly conversions
I'm not complaining

Am slowly coming back round to the Empire. Will be a big year for fantasy obvs, so I am sure they will be back on the table before long as am getting the whole Fantasy urge once more. Recent work are some not-lizardmen which were in the most recent TTCombat Kickstarter

Last update of the year, and finally a return to the Empire. Kinda? They would work as proxy Greatswords anyway. From TTCombat

Inspired by Old World return I have tried to make some terrain for the first time since I was a teenager. Would be very happy for any feedback, as I am hoping to build a lot more terrain this year (particularly when the old terrain kits return.....)

Decided to give the Old World a try when my copy arrives, having never played Warhammer before. Putting together an Empire army is easy enough for an intro game



But they need opponents. And rather than play Empire vs. Empire, decided this is a good excuse to finish up the Beastmen I have sitting around



Still got a ways to go before it is ready (Old Wolrd doesn't release in Oz for a little while yet, so got time), but I finished this guy today, which represents a sizeable chunk of points

A Wood Elf Eternal Guard regiment done. Just about completed filling out three 1000 point armies for starter games in Old World
