Guest Post – Wargaming addiction?


This is a Guest Post from Ray Deg

Hi there, I don’t really blog, but as Jenn was asking for guest writers I thought I would give it a go.

So, like most folks I started wargaming as a kid, I saved my pocket money and I brought new units, got a decent haul for Christmas and Birthdays, but never really had much of a backlog, most stuff was painted before the next purchase.

Next up puberty hits, I stop for a few years as you do, then got back into it, now with a job and more disposable income, so I would buy a few units come payday, but again no real backlog.

Fast forward to today, as a “Proper Grown up” I could pretty much buy whatever I fancied, so I did, from side projects to new armies to impulse buys on bundle boxes etc, so the mountain of plastic grew and grew.

But you know what, I have far less time to paint now, grown up responsibilities being what they are, and yet I bought more because I could. (ooh ltd release etc etc) so now I find myself with a lot of different armies most half built and half painted none of them getting the love they deserve.

Of course, I could get rid of them all, I did in fact sell a lot, but I do like my models, they have just become a chore. I find myself thinking I SHOULD paint X or Y or I need to get a certain unit done and trying to force myself to power through…

I think I need to box them up and just pull out one unit at a time, actually go back to painting for the fun of painting.

What do you think?


Exorcist Pin-Up


Another suggestion that came from the land of twitter.

I am still very surprised at the reception my Pin up Space Marines have had over there – I’m glad that it has been overwhelmingly positive though, it gives me encouragement to keep doing them; and I really enjoy doing them. They’re different and they are what I enjoy drawing. Pin ups are awesome; even if everyone and their Mum can do it too~

No video with this one though, sorry. I honestly forgot about recording!


If you didn’t already know – you can support me on Patreon, where I take suggestions, requests and a whole host of other fun things!

Noctis Warden


For more information about this particular chapter head on over to Fishy Wargaming the owners of the Noctis Wardens.

I always enjoy drawing Space Marines cause they always provide such an interesting challenge – so if you want to throw one at me then please do as I love hearing your suggestions for these guys.



Pin up Space Marine

Legion of Dave

This is something that stems from Twitter!!

I enjoy drawing Pin-Ups and I enjoy drawing 40k stuff.

Why not combine the two?

Inquisitor Jenn

This character came about cause of Abaddon and Teal, and is pretty much a fun parody self-insert.

I just wanted to design her an outfit and ‘flesh’ her out a bit beyond just being a stick character.

It’s her job to hunt Heretic-Deb through the galaxies and burn nurglings; it was great to flesh her out a bit and draw up a base for her incase I design any alternative outfits for her.

Nathaniel Base

Been working on a series of outfits for Primaris Nathaniel Greyson – it feels like forever since I did anything with him, so it’s great to get back on board.

The last outfit, the vampire one, was from a prompt on Tumblr and was a lot of fun. I drew on inspiration from the Olde World Warhammer Vampire Counts for the aesthetic, but didn’t want to deviate from his default outfits colours too much, so I used liberal helpings of administratum grey!

It was also great to be able to draw his base as well, to show how far the corruption goes into his body and that it’s not just his arm that is mutated.

I hope you like them~


Mordecai Reid


It doesn’t look like I shared the original sketch for this guy here, but at least I can share the finished results!
It’s my Assault Marine Sergeant, Moredcai Reid – he has a fondness for starting fist-fights and specialises in Power Fists (surprise, surprise!) and Combat shields.
He has long hair, which he always remembers to tie into a top-knot before activating his jet-pack.
