Frolmec Heads from Katsina miniatures

Hey folks, I hope everything's going for the best. I'm still in the middle of moving house so things are quiet on the painting desk and messy everywhere else but that should all come back in shape soon enough (famous last words)

Now just before packing everything up I had managed to knock a few of these gorgeous Frolmec Heads (see the pun ?) from Katsina Miniatures from their latest Kickstarter.

They are finely sculpted, paint up very well and fast and I reckon they make up for the kind of neat objective markers in games or just as scatter terrain to give an otherwordly feel to your setting.

I did get a set of absolutely fantastic frogmies from them and although I'm still pondering about what colour scheme I want for them, there's no doubt that they are exquisite models and I mean it. Cute, delicate, full of character, they're one of my next warbands for whatever game will have them ! Doti really outdid herself on those.

Now take a look at some of what Katsina have produced over time and tell me you don't wish for more ?

Fogou Shack me up ! - More Junktown scenery

Hey everyone ! It's been a while but with summer vacations it's sometimes hard to find the opportunities to get to your brushes, I reckon many will know the feeling. I've had plenty of fantastic stuff on the desk however so I was eager to get it all done and show you !

Rogue Trader Ork Wartrak and Scorcher for Orctober !


Hey everyone ! So you know what month it is right ? It's freaking october, you heard that ? OrCtober !
And what do we do on ORCTOBER ? WE PAINT ORCS, THAT WHAT WE DO !
Now to be honest, I had a few hundred things to pick from if I wanted greenskins so I picked some of the models I've had for a while and which really tempted me, namely the wartrak (minus field gun) and Scorcher !

Negavolt Cultists - Blackstone Fortress

Hi everyone ! It's a weird time right now at home with some real life getting in the way but good stuff ! I have a fair few unblogged painted things so I'll try and clear the desk (and mind) of that unfinished business !
Keeping my 2021 resolution to finish the content of the core box of Blackstone Fortress, here are 4 new villains, the Negavolt cultists !

Since the traitor guards are coming soon, I wanted to test some speed painting techniques on those to gather a bit of XP. Almost all parts you see have had only 2 coats of paint with the exception of the red cables. It's either just contrast/highlights or glaze/wash or sometimes just one wash or contrast coat with the cables getting a wash and two highlights to make them pop a bit and the glowing parts getting 3 shades of red.
It's not spectacular from up close but at tabletop distance it's more than enough to get the effect working and that's where I'll try to go with the 34 cultists on the table right now.

Unlike the beastmen, those models are very samey-samey which is a pity, as a whole, I think the models from blackstone fortress are some of the most clever and neat design from the past few years and the combinations and variants you can find with the beastmen or psykers is excellent. I wish the negavolt cultists had got that sort of treatment bt they remain excellent models which really convey the right mood.
All in all, despite not looking at the box art, I've managed to get a very similar colour scheme, guess that's what suits them !
Anyway, they were fast and rewarding models to have done so I'm pretty chuffed, more to come soon so happy painting you all !

Stargrave Crew - Rogue Trader retinue


Hey all, so after a little summer break I managed to get a few things out of the workshop, some I can't show yet and some I just finished and need to get out of my system like this Stargrave band !
Now Stargrave has been out for a little time now and despite it being the game many of my friends and I awaited, I've found myself lacking deadlines and games prospects to fully dive into production.
I could obviously pick from the several bands I've painted over the years but you know how it goes, one needs something a little fresh and fancy !
With that in mind, I knew pretty much from the start (actually from before even getting the rulebook) I would want to make a band out of the most classic sculpts from the Rogue Trader era. There's a little modern intruder of course but he really seemed to be made for that band.

That's the sort of stuff I'm talking about !

Rogue trader Ork Nobz !


Hey everyone ! Sometimes a painter needs a little break and a good hobby hug in his comfort zone. Mine are definitely somewhere in the arms of Jes Goodwin models or Kev Adams's so after painting a lot of models from my desk and requirements for Blackstone fortress, I felt like fueling my mojo up with some classics and I opted for some bad ass ork nobz from Kev Adams. This will make my orkish force grow even more and the colours are a no brainer since I'll just replicate the same old recipes on this colourful project!

An invisible Menace ! - Crystal resin Ymgarl genestealer


Hey folks, here's an odd one again !
You might remember me painting a fan sculpt of Ymgarl Genestealer earlier, well I was lucky enough to get a clear resin cast of it !
How awesome is that ? Very much indeed.

Epic Imperator Titan - A youth achievement !


Well hello there ! Today's post is rather special because I'm ticking several items from the bucket list at once !
I'm on the verge of turning 40 and 1994 was a formative year for me in terms of music, comics and models but amongst a few gut punches, I remember Titan Legions was one of those obsessions for me along listening to Infectious Grooves :

The gigantic robots, the completely insane cover box, that was pushing all of young JB's buttons like few things had before. I had a love at first sight with warlord titans in the early 90's like any sane kid but I just never got a box of any and I decided to spend my limited funds on blisters of chaos goodness bit by bit.
