So just a quick one, as I've been a bit caught up with things and have a tourney next weekend that i'm prepping for so haven't had much time to crack on with this as much as i'd have liked to (tsch family and other hobbies tsch!). But still some progress has been made so here we go. Overarching aim for most of this is to create things that are tabletop standard (or at least appear to be) and that don't require you to go out and spend the big bucks!
First we start off with the Terrain building. A tutorial will follow so wont go into too much detail now, but here are some pics for your viewing pleasure.
As a reminder here is what I am (very optimistically) aiming for:
Here is the 'ingredients' for my upcoming *cough* triumph
Here is phase 1
Next up, are the objective markers. Here you will see my true artistic talents starting to blossom...
Check this link for the previous blog, highlighting the main concept and ideas:
So here are the first 3 steps I have done towards it. All early stages again but you can see where i'm going with it at least:
So like I said, nothing to write home about but at least its a start ay!
If you haven't already - go and check out the amazing work and hobby fun we are all (like 40 of us!) are getting involved with. Fluff, models, bat reps and so much more! Link below:

Hey guys, so after the slog of painting (which i'm not quite finished with yet lol) I turn my concentrations to the background of my story and characters and really look to establish the von Hesselinks into the campaign.
Interestingly these characters are based on some private fluff that @PTG - Hyper-G and I wrote a long time ago waaaay back in 2009!! This was when we were just 2 young boys getting into the world of toy soldiers and playing small skirmish games complete with narrative battles and stories to go along with them. As such I actually had a wealth of characters to choose from and over the years the characters evolved to go along with the models and units i picked. Still, I never had a real reason to continue their fluff until now and how I have enjoyed getting them out of the figurative closet!
So, we focus on the leader, his lover and their necromancer helper and their journey to Avras to help the Vampire Queen Fontaine in defending her throne. think of these as Origins stories. Enjoy!
*Warning* These were much longer than I originally intended so please get yourself a drink before attempting them! Please also bare in mind that this is written by me aka a complete noob when it comes to writing, so if it reads like a 4 year old wrote it please bare with lol

cavalry models. As I mention in the video above, these are for gaming and in thus I made it easier on myself when it comes to colors, because more than likely I am going to break these atleast once while on the gaming table. But as you can see below:
They can be even more complicated when it comes to colors and layers. The biggest thing about these models is that they do not rank up as well as other cavalry models due to how they are supposed to be posed, and the range of their poses. So it is IMPERATIVE that you plan ahead by a few feet in order to make sure the unit looks cohesive and doesn't look too cluttered, I even have mine numbered on the bottom. For my vampire knights I even went as far as to have raven unit fillers so they have room to breath, something I wish I had the forethought on when doing my earlier grail knights. But, thats why I am here.
