About Me

Hi Folks, I've been playing Warhammer Fantasy from early days, although have just gotten back into it after being absent for a number of years. This blog is to record thoughts and experiences from amongst myself and friends. Personally, I am currently working on Orcs & Gobbos and also have High Elves, Skaven and a few Warriors of Chaos. Amongst the other chaps we have every other army covered. We are not die-hard competition gamers, but enjoy the game for the social aspect as well as the hobby side of collecting and painting.

The art of basing

When I first started collected warhammer miniatures many years ago my bases were very simple - goblin green. After a while I started getting brave and added some flock. It never ceases to amaze me how fantastic some people's bases are..
...and over the years as more material has become available and imaginations have grown the quality just keeps getting better and better. My most elaborate to date has been to add some rocks as well as grass...that's right, 2 different typs of material on the same base...staggering, isn't it. Now I am back into the hobby I will be trying to spruce up the bases a bit more as they really add to the overall look of the model. If anyone has links to suppliers of suitable materials (other than the usual Games Workshop stuff) it would be much appreciated. I have discovered these couple of sites recently and an seriously considering trying some of this stuff out.




  1. check out some of the tutorials on dakka dakka...though the forums could be more useful with less venom, the tutorials are top-notch

  2. Will do, thanks for the heads up.

  3. one other thing to look at is Silflor as well as
