Orks painting

Happy Monday!

I hope you’ve enjoyed your long weekend if you’ve had one, I’ve spent mine crafting as you can imagine πŸ™‚ you’ll be happy to hear that I’ve finished the baby blanket in time for the baby shower, but so last minute (I was weaving ends in the car on the way there!) that I didn’t get time to take a proper picture. Here it is next to all the other presents, this little girl is already spoilt!


The future parents were super glad though so that’s what matters πŸ™‚

In other news I’ve started painting my warhammer miniatures again, and I’ve made some good progress on a squad of orks. The story for this is actually quite funny, in the warhammer universe, orks are fungi that keep on growing all over the planets. I have this crazy theory that orks are French and that’s why they can’t say “Hs” so I’m painting their clothes blue white and red πŸ˜‚ anyway, I’ve done their skin and Β started the metal bits on some of them so far.


I’m pretty excited with how they’ve turned out so far and I can’t wait to actually play a game with them when they’re actually painted! I’ll be back on Wednesday with some crochet update 😊

On another note, Halloween this weekend! I’m so excited because we are having a Harry Potter themed party and I have been making Hogwarts robes for my fiancΓ© and I. I really need to finish those for the weekend, along with our magic wands! So those are my goals for this week. I am also planning on making a whole menu based on HP featured dishes so stay tuned, I’ll be posting some pics next weekend.

And finally, Mr. Jelly has accompanied me to work today, to help me correct assignments πŸ™‚

Fishy and upcoming competition

Good morning crafters!

Last weekend we went back (after a very long absence) to our local Games Workshop hobby shop: The Hall of the Great Wolf. Seeing all those models made me want to play again and especially to continue painting my armies! Luckily, next Saturday, there is an Armies on Parade competition held at the hobby shop. We have to bring a board and an army, all painted and looking nice. You probably don’t remember but a few months ago I was working on this guy, a volcano board. Since, I’ve added some lava (which I need to finish before next Saturday) and I also want to add some details (including some moss and eggs).

Eggs? What eggs? I have decided to display my Tyranids army, so they will be Tyranids eggs. Tyranids are monster looking creatures that all form a collective entity, can share thoughts instantly through “synapse” (psychic) communication and have for only goal to feed on all bio-matter they can find, reproduce and advance through the universe.

Overall, I just think they look great and they are fun to play with, which is why I chose them. Also, the colour scheme I chose for them is bone and blue, which I think will look nice on a volcanic terrain.

Hive Tyrant – He is the leader of the army

Termagaunts – basic soldiers, good at shooting

IMG_2892

Genestealer – sneaky, with rending claws (can go through his opponents armour)

IMG_2891

Hormagaunts – basic soldiers like the termagaunts, but they are a combat unit rather than a shooting unit

Now before next Saturday, I just need to finish a few other models and to finish the lava effect on the board and I’ll be ready to enter in the Armies of Parade comp!

Crochet-wise, I was trying to reduce my stash a little and I found this really cute pattern on yarspirations website to crochet tropical fish dishcloths. I changed the pattern slightly to make a rainbow fish!Β 

I hope you guys had an amazing weekend!
