SHOWCASE: Deet's 2015 Year In Review

Following up on Trip's great review is going to be difficult. I'll have to try to go first next year! He had a kid and still managed to paint more than I did. Sigh.

DISCUSSION: Painting Fatigue

It's been a mighty long time since my last post! Lots of reasons for that- moving, house hunting, wedding planning, work suckitude, Fallout 4. But the biggest reason is that I just kind of lost my painting mojo for a little while. Happens to all of us sometimes. So what are the things we all do to keep motivated?

Temporary Hobby Space

The dust settles on my move and I carve out a tiny hobby space among the crap.

DISCUSSION: 40K Fiction- Is It Any Good?

A few months ago I picked up my first 40K book to try to get myself in the mood and get a little inspiration for my new Alpha Legion force. I've only tried one book, but if this is any indication of the norm, I'm not getting a second.

WIP: Alpha 'Fiend - Going Quiet Over Here

Just as quickly as I got up to speed on this project, it's coming to a screeching halt. Good news is I've sold my condo. Bad news is I have to move out this weekend. Was making good progress on the metal. It'll probably take a couple of coats to make it smooth so it's slow going. Fingers crossed I get unpacked in time for a proper post next week.

WIP: Alpha Fiend - Good God, It Never Ends

I was enjoying the simplicity of just slapping black paint on everything. One simple color. High contrast and easy to see. Nice mindless work. After several weeks of it, I'm ready for this to be over. Might have finished tonight but my eyes started bugging out on me. I'll probably be done with all the blacks on 25+ Marines and this 'Fiend tomorrow. Finally. Then it's on to metallics for a month or two.

WIP: Plodding Away On The Alphas

I'm free! The painting stuff is slowly creeping back out of storage. Bring it on!

WIP: Alpha Legion - So. Much. Black.

I've actually had a lot of fun getting back to my Alpha guys. With the airbrush locked away until my place gets sold, it's a good thing I had plenty of stuff based and ready for brush work!

TRAVEL: Gen Con Indiannapolis

After 5 or 6 years off, I finally returned to the "best 4 days in gaming". Check out some of the sights and a nice gallery of minis from the painting competition.

Scheduling Announcement

Just a quick heads up to let everyone know that due to time constraints, beginning Monday August 3rd, The Hammer of Wrath will be updated on every Tuesday and Thursday, instead of every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

We will continue to post the same content you've come to expect, but simply needed a less demanding posting schedule to reflect the reduced hobby time both Dieter and I are experiencing.


WIP: Alpha 'Fiend- Paint Begins

After a brief interruption to clean up some missed seams, etc., the 'Fiend gets under the airbrush.

WIP: Alpha Legion Squad #2

Was itching to get the brush out last night. 'Fiend wasn't ready for primetime, so squad #2 gets its humble beginnings.

TRAVEL: Comic Con

I've had precisely zero hobby time since last Wednesday, so instead of another picture of my Maulerfiend still sitting on the table you get treated to my Comic Con adventures. Check it out!

WIP: Mauler/Forgefiend and Cable Maker Tool

Got the 'Fiend just about ready for paint. Just had to add some cables to the guns and do a touch more on the base. Look at that pretty boy.
