  • The Nova Albions Roll Out

    The Nova Albions Roll Out

    Amidst some intense Black Friday shopping to get gifts for family and friends I managed to scrounge enough time to finish the tanks for Nova Albions. And with all four tanks finished the Nova Albions can now roll out and a project almost 11 months in the making is now complete. But I am getting […]

  • Yo Ho A Pirate’s Life for Me

    Yo Ho A Pirate’s Life for Me

    Now that I am fully back into the minipainting swing of things I decided to take a little detour and work on a commission that a local D&D DM had given me to work on. I had done a previous job for him which was a pirate beholder that he seemed pleased with and thus […]

  • All Out War Pt.4: We’re Gonna Need a Bigger Gun

    All Out War Pt.4: We’re Gonna Need a Bigger Gun

    As time moves inexorably forward so does the mustering of the Nova Albions. As I begin to recoup my painting mojo after rough couple of months I tackle the All Out War Challenge with greater fervor than before. Early in July I tackled the heavy weapon teams by first scrounging around my bits to find […]

  • All Out War Pt.3: The Infantry Take To The Field

    All Out War Pt.3: The Infantry Take To The Field

    June was a pretty bad month for me as a kidney stone added a layer of pain and discomfort to everything I did. There were still a few days where I was able to get some meaningful hobby work done and after my medical malady had passed I was able to make a last ditch […]

  • All Out War Pt 2.5: Mustering is Slow Business

    All Out War Pt 2.5: Mustering is Slow Business

    So the muster of the Nova Albions is slow going but going nonetheless. So I figured I would pop in and give a quick update on how that little project is doing. Thankfully, the work I put in at the beginning with the scheme has made it so that the short bursts of painting I […]

  • All Out War Pt.2: The Commissariat Have Arrived

    All Out War Pt.2: The Commissariat Have Arrived

    Painting has come only in short bursts for me as I try to not burn myself out on the hobby. Luckily for me the All Out War challenge on the minipainting discord has been doing well; so well that the mods decided to throw us a bone and make the March challenge a little easier. […]

  • All Out War Pt.1: The Nova Albions Begin To Muster

    All Out War Pt.1: The Nova Albions Begin To Muster

    It’s been a little while since my last entry here but that is only because I have some big things in the works that has been taking up a lot of my time. Hopefully come the end of March this blog is gonna have a bit of a makeover but for now let’s dive into […]

  • Hobby Progress: DA Eradicators

    Hobby Progress: DA Eradicators

    So November (and most of December)came and went without anything happening on this piece of internet real estate but despite the many trials and tribulations work has wrought upon me in that time I made sure to keep my hobby mojo going and I plan to start the new year strong. In regards to my […]

  • Hobby Progress: Dark Angel Eliminators

    Hobby Progress: Dark Angel Eliminators

    So for the months of March and April I was in a bit of minipainting quagmire. I had begun doing work on my competition entries for the Capital Palette 2020 at Nova Open, but with ongoing pandemic I wasn’t sure if Nova was even going to happen. As a result, any work I did was […]

  • Hobby Progress: Deredeo Dreadnought

    Hobby Progress: Deredeo Dreadnought

    So shortly before I finished the Invictor I completed my first Forgeword unit, the Deredeo Dreadnought with Anvilus Autocannon and Aiolos Missile Launcher (that’s a lot of dakka). This project was interesting because I decided to paint this unit in the colors of the Deathwing which is a paint scheme consisting of a bone colored […]
