Soon be Christmas.

With 2017 rocketing by at a breakneck pace already I have come up with a simple plan to keep the blog active until my schedule clears up a bit later in the year. Unfortunately the Mordheim painting challenge has been shelved due to real life affecting three of the four of us, so I need a replacement.

Each week I will be taking down an old White Dwarf magazine from the shelves and scanning a few select pages for inspiration and discussion. Who knows where it will lead?

We start with #131 (no reason, purely at random) and controversially skip straight past the article on Horus vs Emperor (we all know that fluff by now), leaving us with some lovely Eavy Metal pages, a fantasy townhouse modelling guide and two beautiful black and whites from Mighty Empires and Confrontation articles respectively.

  1. How have I not seen that Paul Robins' dragon before? It's stunning. Thanks for sharing this, perhaps I missed this issue of WD when I was a kid?

    1. It is indeed beautiful! I missed the odd issue as a kid thanks to holidays etc. I have caught up I think thanks to pdfs but I still make seemingly new discoveries when flicking through.

  2. Classic issue! The Dragon is beautiful, but it is the PAul Robins Wizard which I keep coming back to. And the pencil drawings at the end provide some suitable additional inspiration for a Rogue Trader themed project I have planned :)

  3. Thanks for the post! It has inspired me to dig out some of my old WD's to peruse for inspiration as well. I may actually have to break down and do some scenery, as a lad I always wanted to build some foam board buildings.

    1. My absolute pleasure. I only ever made one foamcard building back in the day but it serves me still... I will definitely be adding to it soon though.

  4. Thanks for sharing with, Warlord P!
    Looking at those old 'eavy Metal, it makes me realize that my own love and use of the graduated blue background in miniature photographs has a good old Warhammer pedigree. Funny the things you notice when looking at old white dwarves in a new way.
