Peeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep. Peep. Peep. It lives!

So in an effort to try keep everything in one place and get my list of hobby jobs reduced I'm going to try get the blog going again... This is going old school style - I'm still kicking around on Facebook, but mainly in the gaming groups Facebook page, but not as Krom.

So 2015 was a massively busy year for starting new projects and for beating on GW policies. The latter won't change, but I'm going to try them again at some point. So, inspired by my brother re-starting his blog I thought I would start by typing to list down all the tasks I need to try and achieve in 2016:

Knight Hospitaliers (for a participation game at Vapnartak in February)

  • 6 jockeys with pokey sticks
  • 6 jockeys with choppy bits
  • 12 volunteer st johns ambulance workers with choppy bits
  • 12 volunteer st johns ambulance workers with shooty things

Blood Bowl Orc team

  • 4 Black Orcs
  • 4 Blitzers
  • 2 Throwers
  • 2 Goblins
  • 2 Linemen
  • 4 Balls
  • 3D pitch and dug outs

Bolt Action Americans

  • Finish 10 man regular GI squad
  • 10 man Ranger squad
  • Medium Howitzer
  • HMG team
  • Light Mortar team
  • Bazooka team
  • 1 1/2 ton truck with passengers
  • Fury tank platoon
  • M18 hellcat
  • M5 Stuart
  • M8 Scott
  • M3 Half track
  • 10 airborne from the 101st
  • Bolt Action Fury farmstead inspired board
  • Dutch Town board

Infinity Yu Jing
Not really sure here, but there's a few


  • Finish Valkyries with detailing and weathering
  • Finish Vulture Base
  • Avenger Strike Fighter
  • Tauros Venator
  • at least 2 Tauros
  • Re-base everything


  • 18 Terminators
  • 5 Drop Pods
  • 2 Dreadnaughts

  • Space Hulk Models
  • 3D Space Hulk Board

  • Descent Models

The list is huge and to be honest I'm not sure it's all achievable within 2016, but my goal is to avoid buying anymore stuff until I've cleared the list somewhat. I may even decide to cull some and sell some stuff on, but it depends how my mojo goes.

This doesn't even factor for the no doubt endless new systems the club will find and I get tempted to start - but I'll try to resist.

I'll go and cry a small amount now.

Elysian 205th lands on Facebook

Well I've decided to take the plunge and make my small updates a bit easier to do by creating myself a facebook page. I'll us this for posting pics when playing games, updates during the painting process and anything else that takes my fancy hobby related. I'll use the blog as more of a showcase type tool. I'll look to possible create some nice features that I can add, such as youtube vids etc - but I'll see how we go to begin with.

Find us on Facebook

Also I was pointed in the direction of this awesomeness by Tim over at The Vanus Temple

Logan Wing Painting Update

space_wolf_terminatorSo I have actually pulled my finger out and done some painting. On with the pics.

Mostly done, just need do decal on shoulder pad, crux terminatus and metals. I will varnish and do the metals after I've the dullcoate applied feel it needs a little more contrast.

 Well, that's what I'm telling myself anyway. 

Next update in 6 months ;)

Space Wolf Terminator Completed (almost)

Space Wolf Terminator combi melta
I can hardly believe it, I've completed this space wolf terminator... almost. I have some minor additions to add to him, such as his base and some weathering powders around is feet - possibly higher up, depending how I'm feeling. I personally feel quite exhausted after painting him - though that could have been the recent spate of flu that has swept my family and the reason this guy wasn't done sooner.

6th edition list revision... We go back for a little more turkey

Space WolvesWell, my hobby mojo is still flowing... I'm still doing stuff :D

Slowly, but progress. Though I feel it might take a hit in the near future. I had taken myself away to the man cave for a little painting time - when my daughter started crying like a loon - she's caught a nasty cold and cough from nursery. I feel there will be more of this to come.

So whilst I've been struggling to get much time in the garage I have been considering my army list, which seems to have been hit by 6th Edition. I've been chatting quite a bit with Tim from The Vanus Temple about my list. He's also still fairly green with 6th, but he's had more games of it than me and he's always been generally quite good with army lists anyway.

Joined a Tale of Gamers

So I've just joined a Tale of Gamers type thing. It's a group of gamers from Hulls Angels... Based in and around Hull UK.

The aim is to finish this year with a fully painted 1500pts force. Painting 250ptd every 2 months. This is just the approach I'm looking for no pressure to spend hours painting in the garage every night to achieve a monthly goal. It goes hand in hand with real life first.

So the link where this will all be happening and where you can catch up with the other gamers taking part in the Tale of Gamers.
