In just a few days I will be painting for 24 hours in support of the Willow Foundation.

I have set a target of £200 and am already at £160, everyone who donates will be entered into a raffle to win some stuff, a list of which you can see here, and you can donate via Just Giving.

I am going to be posting a lot more about this in the week so look out for updates.

The models are all now built and I think I have the technology sorted out, so let’s crack on!

What I am Modelling

I started the week by painting up the Autocannon Teams for Niki’s Death Korps of Krieg.

I love these models and may have to think about painting my own Death Korps of Krieg at some point.

I then painted up the Chaos Spawn for the Death Guard, mostly done with Contrast but I think they look good.

The Stormcast Eternals Evocators were being worked on between stages on these two previous things, so I then turned my attention to finish them off.

So that left me with just the Castigators left from the Stormcast side of Soul Wars.

Next on the list were my Blood Claws for the Space Wolves, 15 of them! And I also painted a Space Wolves Captain from Rogue Trader first made in 1991.

The Blood Claws were made from my bitz box and most use leftovers from my original building of the Space Wolves several years ago.

I do currently have a single Blood Claws Squad, of five Astartes, but decided I wanted a nice big squad of 15 so I can eventually put them in a Stormwolf Assault Boat and have that lot jumping out with a Wolf Priest!

The Captain was finished first ion Saturday evening, and I am rather happy with him, he will serve as a Wolf Guard Battle Leader probably.

I am trying to acquire a few of these old school captains from back then to add to the armies I do have, I have some bids on the Blood Angels and Ultramarines Captains on eBay.

The Blood Claws took a while but they eventually were finished today.

I think next year I will be going through the Space Wolves to get them rebased and the transfers and pack markings sorted out properly.

I have no put on my painting handles, the Tempestor Prime, Command Squad and Valkyrie for my Millitarium Tempestus, and the Ogryns for Niki’s Death Korps of Krieg.

I am also going to paint the Valkyrie and a Vendetta for Aeronautica Imperialis.

So what does this leave my painting queue looking like, well let’s take a look:-

  1. Millitarium Tempestus Tempestor Prime, Command Squad & Valkyries
  2. Death Korps of Krieg Ogryns x 6
  3. Stormcast Eternals Castigators x 5
  4. Sons of Horus Tactical Squad x 10
  5. T’au Breacher Squad x 10 & Devilfish
  6. Death Korps of Krieg Mortar Teams x 3
  7. Blood Ravens Redemptor Dreadnought
  8. Stormcast Eternals Vanguard Hunters x 10 & Knight-Zephyros
  9. Ultramarines Contemptor Dreadnought
  10. Zone Mortalis Terrain

What I Am Reading

I started on Ghostmaker by Dan Abnett, the second Gaunts Ghost novel and that’s pretty good going so far.Millitarium Tempestus Tempestor Prime, Command Squad and Valkyries

I have been very alert this week so haven’t read as much as I would have liked to.

I finished Devastation of Baal and decided to listen to Dante, and now realise I should have done it the other way around, both books are pretty good to paint to.

What I Am Playing

I haven’t played anything this week 🙁

What I Am Backing

Alhambra Roll and Write funded and our pledge has been collected. Obviously as it’s a Queen Games Projects I am expecting it to be hugely delayed, but arrive eventually.

Project Infinite Hole is still going strong and should finish at the end of this week for some more amazing Paranoia content.

And I decided to back the Steve Jackson Games’ GURPS 2020 PDF Challenge because it’s basically 12 PDFs for GURPS for just $3

What I Am Cooking

I did cook some hot dogs for lunch on Monday, I made them with caramelised onions and melted gruyere. I have some ideas on how to make them better and once Megan is back I will be trying that out.

What I Am Spending

The big headline is my purchase of Indomitus, but I have to wait two weeks until I have that in my hands!

In the meantime I did grab a box of Ambots for Necromunda from Leodis Games.

And I picked up a preloved copy of Dice Forge from Drew and Rhi at Meeple Perk!

I also bought a few ebooks, Lady of Sorrows by CL Werner, Saturnine by Dan Abnett both in prose and audio, Soulless Fury by Will McDermott and both the Generals Handbook 2020 and Spike Journal Issue 9 from Games Workshop.
