Happy Boxing Day!

By now the boy has finally unwrapped his Christmas presents, so I can show you what he got without spoiling any surprises.  It’s Warhammering Time!  He traded away some terrain a few years back and has been playing with ugly tan vehicles for some time.  He left them here...

Painted Devil Dog

Finally got a chance to sit down and get some paint on this card stock Warhammer 40k vehicle.  The Devil Dog is a modified Chimera that mounts a melta-cannon and big fuel tanks instead of 10 scared and about to die Guardsmen.  This one is table-quality – you can...

Two Dollar Jungle Templates

At long last, the Abox clan can rumble in the jungle.  The local craft store chain is selling some sort of plastic plant doo-hickeys for about a buck, and two of them are enough to make a slew of jungle stands.  In this case, I’ve mounted the plants themselves...

The Emperor Protects (painted figures more than unpainted ones)

My son received a few more Imperial Guardsmen from a friend this Christmas.  He knows that if he plays a game with them sans paint, that his old man will feel such overwhelming shame that he’ll take the dang things and paint them for him.  He did it to...

Last week I took the boy (13) down to the weekly games day at the local games shop for a bit of Memorial Day wargaming.  As usual, games day consisted of mainly 40K with a few tables of the flavor of the month.  Which is fine, as it gave...

Kid’s Stuff Threedux

A good friend bailed me out of some personal drama (loaned me a spare car when my transmission went ker-chunk). Our kids are both into 40K, and after a recent battle, a couple of his terrain pieces wound up in our box.  As a partial thanks for the loaner,...

Kid’s Stuff Redux

It’s a travel week for me, and that means no update on my late, lamented project.  Time to cut my losses and move on from the car wars highway.  While I figure out what to do next, here’s a quick shot of my son’s latest acquisition: Warhammer 40K Cadian...

Kid’s Stuff

Time to start introducing this little hobby to the boy.  A few weeks ago, he got a box of Warhammer 40K figs to practice on, but I can’t let him have all the fun.  Tonight, we glued them together in whatever way seemed cool.  Here are our results, sans paint. Warhammer players...
