I'm still alive!....but very tired.

Evening folks,

 I thought I'd explain that I'm still kicking and will continue the blogging in the next month or so once things calm down here. My girlfriend, now heavily pregnant with our little one has been hospitalised with High Blood pressure. She is being monitored throughout the day and is currently spending her 11th night there. As much as I would like her to be at home, the hospital is obviously the best place for her to guarantee her safety and that of our future ruler of humankind. She's quite sick of the place as I'm sure we all would be. It isn't nice to be proded, poked and tested umpteen times a day every day. At this point it looks like she will be there until the baby arrives. I'll be visiting her every day until then and have already made massive headway with ensuring the house is baby proofed. Massive thanks to my folks in that department, who came down to Cork for the whole weekend and helped make the house look as awesome and as tidy as it now does.

 I'm early awaiting the new arrival and I hope you'll all excuse the absence. I'm sure there aren't many of you out there monstrous enough not to. ;)

As always, safe journey and beware Old Night.

INQ28 - Genestealer Cult/Rogue Magos Biologis WIP Group

Swhilst trying to make an Inquisitor and his warband, believing that I hadn't really come close to creating a viable group...there they were. I subconsciously created a Genestealer Cult/Rogue Magos Biologis Inq28(possible also Inquisimunda) warband!

The Hive Mind works in mysterious ways...

Thank you for visiting my blog traveller, safe journey to you and beware Old Night

INQ28 - Inquisitor WIP Ascending

So the base model for my Inquisitor arrived today. I can not wait to year this fellow apart and bring you along for the ride! It'll be my first attempt at slicing and splicing together plastic and white metal models. I really like this model and he was a doozy to find.

Sketch - Mad Max Mania!

The other day I left my keys for the house IN the house. So was forced to seek shelter in the local pub, The Franciscan Well. I've mentioned this awesome pub before, with it's awesome beer garden, home brews and clay oven pizza. As the picture suggests I made the most of my visit.

I also did a quick sketch as much like the rest of the internet I have been overcome with Mad Max Mania. This guys name is Lord Glut Sprokketus, Tyrant of the Burning Pass.

INQ28 - Inquisitor Henchman Finished!


Henrik Frey planted his boot against the door and pushed. His leg brace whined as the mechanisms worked over time. With a snap the portal burst open and sent shards of rusted metal into the room beyond. He walked in, lasrifle braced against his shoulder, scanning the area. There was no one to be seen. He was not the stealthiest man, he had been told many times, but then again stealth was not his way. If he could not avoid the situation altogether, then guns blazing was the only way. In this regard his braced leg seemed a good match for him, it was cumbersome, heavy and loud, much like himself, but by the Throne you didn't want to be on the receiving end of a kick from it...


Apart from a coat of varnish of that will come later. This is the first human model I've painted since I was 14 or so. I'm pretty happy with him, but I'll not lie in saying that there's a lot I want to improve upon. I've learned quite a bit whilst working on him. I think I've captured the vision I had of him. That in itself is a triumph for me.
