HellGate – Part 23 – God of Taint preview #4 PLUS a mixed bag of things.

Hello blogger buddies. I hope you’re all doing well. Looks like lockdown here has been increased for an extra two weeks, which means another three weeks before I can return to work. I’m really looking forward to getting back to work as I thoroughly enjoy my work and miss my clients but I completely support our state leaders views and plan. I really don’t understand anti-maskers. It’s such a small thing to do. It’d be like the government asking us to wear a hat during the summer seasons. Anti-maskers bang on about their freedom being taken away but for me it’s simply the rules we have to abide by for now. It’s so easy. Imagine me jumping up and down because I have to drive on the left hand side of the road and saying “you’re taking my freedom of choice away! I should be able to drive on any side of the road at any time!” Haha.

Sorry, rant over haha.

I did the zenithal (Thanks Johnny from Just Needs Varnish for letting me know the correct word/term) effect/technique on the God of Taint model and it looks pretty cool. Here’s what the model looks like at the moment, without its riders.

In a future post I’ll try and list allllll the kits I used to build this monster with reference pictures included for those of you not familiar with Games Workshop stuff.

I’ve been on a bit of a converting bender lately too and have made a whole bunch of new models for HellGate. I won’t include all of them in this post because there’s a lot haha. I’ll just show some of my favourites.

I’ve been busy with the kids a lot during lockdown. It’s funny how quickly the time is going and just how busy I am actually. By the time I’ve done the schooling and made lunch and then done a couple of jobs around the house it’s suddenly dinner time and then movies hehe. I was thinking I’d have heaps of time for the hobby but that hasn’t been the case. As I’m around a whole lot more the kids are requiring my attention a whole lot more too hehe. However, I have had more time than usual for the beloved hobby.

Some movies I’ve watched:

  1. Men at work (Charlie Sheen and Emilio Estevez)
  2. Navy Seals (Charlie Sheen and Michale Bien)
  3. American Beauty (Kevin Spacy)
  4. The Pianist.
  5. Child of God.
  6. Waynes world.
  7. The Expendables.
  8. Crank.
  9. Lord of the Flies.
  10. Greystoke, Legend of Tarzan Lord of the Apes.

The podcast is tracking well still which is nice to see and I’m getting approximately 30 to 40 listens a week.

Soon I’m hoping to do another couple of interviews. So keep an eye/ear out for them.

I’ve been sharing more things on Instagram than usual, simply because I have more time. I even did a weird video clip and song just to make people smile at my own stupidity.

I really hope everyone is well.

Cheers

  1. Great work on the Zenithal painting technique (is this one mine? Haha). Had to look it up after John mentioned it as I had never heard of it. Very logical though but not easy so very well done.

    Love the other figures too but might have to work on the film choices ;-). Am I right in thinking the Pianist was a porn movie?

    Don’t blame you for the rant mate. The actions of people in the UK drove me up the wall at times far more that than the virus and the isolation. Left to me I would have simply shot the fuckers. Bit dramatic I know but that’s how I roll what can I say. 🙂

    1. Haha! I said right from the start that the virus will be one problem but the people will be the bigger problem. All I can do is look after my own. I don’t think the Pianist was a porn movie but I did see a movie called Edward Penis Hands once haha. I just can’t remember the ending 😉 Glad you like how I did the zenithal trick.

    1. Thanks Marv. I’ve tried to hold back with WIP’s but because the converting part is my favourite thing I just get too excited not to share haha. Yep there will always be crazies. I’ve resigned myself to staying positive and looking after my own. That’s all I can do really.

  3. You have been busy churning out twisted mini’s! in you own inimitable style, People annoy me when they start banging on about restricting their freedoms, your not wearing a mask for yourself you wear to protect everyone else! It’s just bloody selfish idiots who don’t! (sorry rant over).

    I don’t know what was more embarrassing seeing you on the toilet or seeing your RAPPING!, definitely the rapping.

    I’ve seen Edward Penis Hands (a long while ago, I to can’t remember what happened at the end but I think it involved people having “relations” (nudge nudge wink wink).

    Interesting list of films, I think I watched well over a hundred films over the five months we were in lockdown, most were terrible sci/fi and horror flicks on amazon, but I would recommend “Jo Jo Rabbit” if you can get hold of it, really enjoyed that one.

    Cheers Roger.
