A look back on 2017

So I thought I'd look back at what I've managed to do over the pervious year, projects that I have started or finished, the models that I have painted, the events I have attended, my first major forays into the hobby social media world and a little round up of my time working for GW. Warning: this will probably be a long post, with plenty of pictures to break it up, but a long read non-the-less. 

Most of my space wolves as they stand at the end of the year

Gang warfare comes to the Aett

So unless you've had your head under a bush for the last couple of months then you've probably guessed what this post is a about. Well I've decided to dive onto the Necromunda band wagon. So as well as all the standard stuff that I normally post about I will update you on the progress and conquests of my yet to be name Escher gang.

Online Battle Reports

So Something a little different today. I thought I'd chat about online battle reports (having just helped film my third) and what it is like filming for them, why I enjoy them and what I think they do for the community. So hopefully this'll be something you enjoy and something I little different to the standard.

Path2Confrontation: We made it!

So over the last couple of months you have seen my army slowly build ready for the Emperors path event on the 5th of November. That weekend has now passed us by and if you've been following my instagram account you will know that I have completed the army I set out to do and played in the event. So I am going to go over the event a little bit and look at the army I took with me.

The Path to Path2Confrontation: part 4

So this is probably the final instalment of the path to confrontation series as the event is on Sunday. There are a couple of little bits left to go but most of it is all done, so here is a quick wrap up of what I've managed to get done in the last week or so since the last post.

Blood Ravens

So when Dark Imperium was announced I decided that I wanted to go back and do some space marines and edge highlighting after my Talons of the Emperor. I also decided that I needed to do something than Space Wolves, both paint scheme wise and basing wise. So I settled on Blood Ravens on a desert world. So without a further a do here is where I am so far with the army and some bits and pieces that I am still working on.

The forge marches to war!

Today is an army showcase of my mechanicum. Like a servitor I have been slaving away over the last couple of months to get these guys done, firstly for events at warhammer world both earlier in the year (January) and one at the end of June, and secondly finishing all my owned mechanicum models (well nearly, see the bottom of the post). So read on to see the glory of the mechanicum ready to wage war, possibly for the emperor.....
All the mechanicum unit that I own

The Path to Path2Confrontation: part 2

So I've been cracking on with the painting since the last post about about Path2Confrontation. So I thought I would give you all a little bit of an updated in the progress. So far I've managed to finish, Russ' base, a whirlwind scorpius, and the lascannon arms for my mortis contemptor.

Talons of the Emperor Showcase

So today I thought I'd show off some of my Talons of the emperor, including those that you didn't see in the post from throne of skulls. I'll take a look what I have, what I think of it in game and where I'd like to take this army going forward a little. But first off what do I own...

The Path to Path2Confrontation

So at the beginning of November I am taking my space wolves to the Emperors Paths Heresy one day event. So I thought I'd document a little bit of the journey over the next couple of weeks as I bring my force up to what I want it to be for the event. So without further a do lets get to it...

Throne of Skulls, August 2017

So over the weekend of the 19th and 20th I went up to Warhammer world with my Talons of the Emperor force to take part in the Heresy throne of skulls. Here is a quick post on the games that I took part in and the army that I took with me.

All 3.3k of Talons of the Emperor that I own painted, fully painted is for closers and all that jazz

Word of the Sigilite Campaign Weekend

So last weekend myself and three others decended as team Excellent to Warhammer World to play in the word of the sigilite campaign weekend, a horus heresy narrative event where the loyalists and traitors battled over the back water world of Ageis to find something the Sigilite was very keen on getting back, so this is a little run down of my weekend and the games that I played.

My largest force of the weekend, three thousand points on mechanicum

Dan's Space Wolves Showcase

So as you guys know every now and again I like to try and get other armies showcased on here so that we can all spread the hobby love just a little more. And today is one of those days, and you are lucky enough to have Dan's space wolves to feast your eyes upon, so without further ado I will pass you over to Dan

Looking Forward to June

Time for another update about some upcoming bits and pieces. I'm attending a couple of events and meeting with some people in June so have a whole bunch of bits to finish off for that plus obviously painting up a new army for 8th edition and deciding on an Age of Sigmar army to actually finish off.

Projects Updates

So I thought I'd take a chance to just post about what I've done over the last couple of weeks and let people know where I'm taking my armies and projects next. Also managed to take a bit of a hobby break last week which has refreshed me to start back at some bits and pieces. 

First BBQ of the season, not hobby related but was super tasty

New Army - Custodes

So I thought I'd do a little writing about my newest army the Talons of the Emperor, or more specifically the Custodes part of that list. I have just shy of 1500pts at the time of writing (although I have some upgrade packs coming in the post which'll bring it to 1750pts). So Below are my thoughts on how they work and why I'll run them they way I'm planning on running them.

Regaining the Hobby Mojo

So first post in a long while. To be honest although I have been hobbying I haven't really felt the desire to interact with the community or post photos of my work as I haven't really felt inspired in any real way, plus I've had life things to sort out. But now the life things have been sorted and Inferno has now dropped plus a couple of other bits and pieces I thought it would be worth writing some more bits and pieces. So without further a do lets get on with it!

Army I took to the Warhammer World Heresy Doubles event

The Mechanicum are coming

So for a while I have been working on a smallish mechanicum force, well I've finally got the motivation to finish it off and add to it to bring it to a 3k list. There is the doubles event which is at the end of the January and the Escalation painting event in April and as I wanted a changed from the Space Wolves for a little while I thought I'd get some mech stuff done.
