After building some Necron wraiths, and a Canoptek Spyder I’ve real got the “bug”* for the Canoptek constructs.I liked the look of the Triarch Stalker but didn’t like the idea of it being a piloted vehicle, I want my automated Necron creapy crawlies 🙂 So after seeing many many versions of Stalkers being converted using … Continue reading “Necron Triarch Stalker Conversion (No Pilot)”
Games Workshops Psychic Awakening evens has been here a few weeks now – and i’ve had chance to poke around with the code for the event map.
Read on to find our what I found so far.
Having never been able to get to an Armies on Parade day, I was happy to get the chance to visit the local GW store (Warhammer Lincoln) this weekend. Was great to see the store so busy with 12 entries. I was there to see the The Tau Kor’vesa Initiative that I’ve been watching progress on Spikey … Continue reading “Armies on Parade 2016”
WordPress 4.5 is here with a new API for a Custom Logo. Just by adding an add_theme_support like this: add_theme_support(‘custom-logo’); Remember it’s best called in the after_setup_theme hook.

After reading the Mont-Ka book it wasn’t long before I decided I had to make may own version of The Eight. With 8 strong characters to model it seemed a shame that the ‘official’ team uses stock models (excluding Farsight of course). Whatever the Onegar Gauntlet is it’s clearly invisible! Likewise Brightswords’s Fusion Blades states “they are, in appearance, heavily modified fusion blasters.”, but they look typical on the model.
So much cutting and kitbashing later. Here’s my take on the Eight.
Recently I’ve noticed that an article about the “Insidiousness of Facebook Messenger” is doing the rounds again.
Twitter was too short for me to make my full rant about this…
So here’s the full force.
I’d been eyeing up the Pebble Smartwatch for a while and after much unsubtle hint dropping I received an early Christmas present. I thought now would be the perfect time to post a review based on real-world usage and living with it, instead of just first impressions and a quick play...
If you have any involvement in SEO you’ll have heard the phrase “Content is King”. Google has for many years been trying to make the content of a page the most important aspect and for the most part it has achieved that goal this year. I’ve always said to any person that would listen that … Continue reading “Content is King, but don’t forget the Prince…”
Whilst working as a Web Developer on many sites I’ve often had clients far more focused on aesthetics than function. This obsession has included things as specific as being asked to move text one pixel to the left, to the more vague “bold, bolder, bolder…less bold”. This has even lead to me developing a sixth … Continue reading “Sites don’t have to look good to work…”
After a long run Imagicraft has had to close it servers due to lack of donations. You can read more on the (still active for now) forums. Currently this means Zarp is sans-home, though I will try to get it setup on a new server soon. UPDATE: Zarp lives on at legendquest.co.uk
