Nightshift Week

Nightshift week just kills me. I am sure its not just me that is totally fucked up by the change. I have been actively trying to get some painting done however sleeping all day and being at my desk all night makes that jolly difficult.

My main focus just now is the Robute Guilliman mode for my friend. So far I am happy with it, its ticking over nice and slow. I have a long weekend coming up so hoping to have it done for this time next week.


Some WIP shots. Working at the desk in work and the lighting is pretty terrible. You can clearly see the yellow tinge in the light. 

My two New York battleships arrived today. Not built them yet but I will be unpacking them and doing a little review on them asap. From just a quick nosey at them they do look super sexy and I can’t wait to see them on the board.

Sunday tutorial

So this Sunday I am teaching a few friends how to play Dropfleet. With two games under my belt and not a scooby about some of the finer mechanics this will be an interesting way to look over the rules and see the game. I have watched quite a few videos online about the game including the rather good Beasts of War videos that Dave was on. If you have not watched these yet then I would recommend them. Depending on how much of a disaster this is I will try write up a report and get a few pictures.

On the painting front its been a slow week. Working 12-9 is not fun and I haven’t had much time for hobby. Robute Guilliman arrived and I have started on the build for this. It is an epic model. Still 100% lost on how to set about this model but I will need to start soon. 


The base is a bit weird. He stands on a removable bit of marble that will sit on a 32mm(??) base however this does not fit through the gap. I will magnetise the marble base to the plastic base so it can be removed and used in game. First of the magnets are in above.


Finished the second starter fleet. Went for a San Francisco, St Petersburg and a New Cairo. On the frigate front I went for a Lima, 2 Missile Frigates and an Aegis Frigate. The names escape me at the moment. I have ordered two of the New York(??) class Battleships that will be magnetised up for the carrier and battleship variants. 

Until next time…
