45 Clanrat Wych conversions have been finished this month, and I am on-target for completing my "Kabal  of the Fursaken" by NOVA.  Self pat-on-the-back!

Hidden Hobby Costs: The Psychological Price of Model Transportation

I could never check one of my army collections with an airline.  I would be angry to lose some favorite clothing, but the thousands of hours poured into an army?  That would be unthinkable!

Prototype Skaven Wych

This weekend, I broke from my "assembly line" of 45 Skaven Wyches, and finished one completely.  I hope you like my take on combat drugs and splinter pistols, Rat style.

A Keeper of "Shocking" Secrets

Around this time last year, I was snowed-in for a long weekend.  After fighting with my snow-blower for a few hours, I tried to warm up at my work bench with a bottle of whiskey; this Greater Daemon of Slaanesh was the result.

The Kabal of the Fursaken - The List

As the putty goes onto my infantry, and plastic shavings litter the floor of my studio, I thought I would spend some time discussing the actual 2k point army list I will be using with my Dark Eldar / Skaven project.

With the turn of the new year, I have begun working on my next large project.  As I look at the 60+ models that require minuscule sculpting and putty detailing, I have begun to wonder just how much work lies between now and NOVA...
