So i wanted to try some black so this is my first attempt at some black.




So that was the Hq’s done onto some troops.



Space Marine Librarian

So on the theme of Hqs i also painted a librarian, good fun to paint this model.



Not much to say about this really oh i did have to hack the base down as it came on a “formed” 25mm base and all my marines are on 32mm.


Leek and Potato Soup

I was never a fan of canned soup, so a while ago i decided to learn to make soup!

This is the additional “Stuff” part of the blog!

So here is Ug’s simple leek and potato soup recipe.

Things you will need

  • Big Pot
  • Hand Blender

Food you will need:


  • 4 med pealed potato rough chopped.
  • 2-3 leeks sliced.
  • 2 Onions rough chopped.
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 1 pint of milk.
  • 1.2l Vegetable stock
  • A chunk of butter (marg,  whatever)

Ok get all you stuff prepared, and then do the following

Fry Onions for 5 mins


Throw all the other stuff in, bring to boil and then simmer for 30 mins.


hand blend and add salt and pepper to taste


Eat, you can also freeze it for later as well!



So that’s my simple soup recipe!




Space Marine Captain

I’m not 100% sure about the order i painted stuff in my SM army … I will take a guess, i had painted a bunch of tactical marines so i think i was in hq mode.

Having a thing for cloaks i painted one of these.


 and the cloak


Oh this was also a “stubble head” mixing lamium medium with some eshin grey for that shaved head look.


Not the best picture but it works as effect.




Drop Pod

As i painted this stuff back in 7th edition my dread needed a drop pod to travel in style.

Got this at the same time as my rhino and its was a horror show to paint, everything 5 times!!! arrrgh

Still here it is.


Closed! you can see my first edge highlights 🙂


I also said to myself i was not gonna crazy on the inside … yeah failed there.


Hazard Stripes, used pencil to mark the lines then hand painted it.


And deployed on the carpet!  just noticed that a forgot to weather it, after painting it i did not have the heart to .  Still might go back and sort that out and post that later.

Anyhow that’s me drop pod.



So i had a tactical squad painted, so gotta have wheels!

A rhino was the next thing so here he is


Painted the same way as i did my dread but on  a bigger scale.


First attempt at some “freehand” the arrow on the side and top were done by me making a template out of card then drawing it on with pencil.  think it came out alright


I do like painting imperial vehicles.

Still i managed to post again!



Terminator Captain

Arrgh so slack, story of my life!

Right term captain

First face and first red cloak.

term cpt1

term capt2

Also managed a tiny hazard strip on the sword.  He seems to have picked up some fluff as well, still pretty pleased with my first HQ.

Think i was to scared of messing up the cloak to do the trim, I have no such fear anymore! still he looks alright!

Anyhow that another post done, gonna follow up with err some more ultramarines.

Not sure what was next but I’ll find something
