MINIATURE BUILDING & PAINTING

Dropship is the blog of tabletop wargaming hobbyist Carl Woodrow.

The posts, videos and galleries feature miniatures from my own collection, assembled and painted after over thirty years in the hobby. Models include a number from Forgeworld’s ‘Horus Heresy’ series of which I’m a big fan, amongst others.

Readers are welcome to join me in one of the live painting streams. Kick back, chat, chill or better still paint along. If you can’t make one of the live shows on twitch.tv then worry not as I upload most of them to YouTube a day or two later. Find the links down below.

Grab a cuppa, this is going to be  long one. Not much streaming last week (I know, I know...) Id like to blame the heat, which was partly true as no way could have streamed live Friday. It was like a furnace in the man cave. But also just so busy. The good news though is I was busy because I have a weeks holiday week coming so plenty of hobby opportunities. On that front pleased to say the entire Necron half of the Indomitus set is now fully built, base textured and ready for priming this evening. They will be the main focus on next weeks efforts. On top of that Ive made a start on the palette tests for the next Heresy force, the VIIth. Why Dorns sons? Two reasons; Saturnine and the fact Ive never really tackled that yellow in anger. Its been quite the build fest over the weekend as Ive managed to also put together an additional couple of boxes of Mark III ready for core units and a Praetor.
I was also saddened to hear one of my favourite Heresy podcast duos Geno Five Two finally call time which felt like the end of a era as it was Tom and Stu that really got me on the heresy train in the first place. Not all is lost though as you can follow Stus Middle Earth VLOG on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCUUo1tjl6UcBmXf8klMimAQ which is well worth a sub for some Middle Earth SBG goodness and Tom is still smashing out some great miniatures on his Instagram @stallard129. Go give them both a follow and some love. 
On the channel front Im going to be backing off Season 3 stream uploads in the future to work on original channel content and keep the live painting where it belongs, on Twitch. Previous archived streams like the Wolves and Titans will still be fine. Until then, have a great week.

It’s never too soon to start planning next years event armies. Especially when inspiration strikes.

Make haste across the Riddermark. Summon every able-bodied man.
