Deathwing Terminators WIP


So after a few weeks i finally had a chance to sit down and get some hobby time in and I have been focusing on trying to get this unit of Deathwing Terminators finished. It’s the unit from the old Dark Vengeance starter set and I’m painting them up as a gift to a friend. 

Right so I have got the base colours on except for some small parts and the weapons.  I’m going to leave them until last. I need to add some highlights onto the smaller parts and even on to the armour. I think the zandri dust colour came out really well on the armour especially after the second layer. The sergeant guy has the most detail and has this robe on him. I put some death guard green on him so the green wouldn’t be the same as the green on his chest piece. I think for the bases I will be using some cork. Just keep it nice and simple.

But I have really enjoyed painting this unit so far. I have had these since the dark vengeance box came out and was never really bothered painting them until now. k

Spunge's Hobby Desk: Deathwing Terminators, Verminlord & Roboute Guilliman


One of the things im working on now is a unit of Deathwing Terminators. Had these since the Dark Vengeance came out a few years back and never really had anything planned for them. I had started a patreon account to go with my YouTube channel and as a thanks to my friend how supported me through it i decided to paint up the unit for him.



I go into greater detail in my YouTube video on the work i have done so far but i pretty much have the base colours down. I like the Zandri Dust colour on the armour, i was considering using a Agrax Earthshade wash in the recess but took a chance on Reikland Fleshshade instead. The softer tone of the Reikland Fleshshade turned out really nice and wasn't to dark. Still a bit to go on the unit but im enjoying painting these.


I showed this off in a previous ebay loot post but i randomly started painting his skin one day with Bugmans Glow followed by Reikland Fleshshade. Not much more done other than a few bits but he is next on my painting list!

Finally the last thing on my painting desk is the king of the Ultramarines himself Roboute Guilliman. I have some plans for this guy when i get around to painting him. I have some new Death Guard models and a primaris model that came with the getting started magazine, so i'm thinking of some kind of diorama piece. Hopefully i will get around to it sooner than later!

Easy to Build Box: Death Guard Plague Marines


On a recent trip to a Games Workshop i picked up the Easy to Build Plague Marines. For €12 this is a cool little box to pick up. It has 3 of the new plague marine models that are snap fit and easy to put together. 






I love the look of theses new Plague Marines and the detail on each ones is incredible. They were made up of 4-5 parts each. They went together easily enough without any hassle and the snap fit mechanic works really well. No glue! Although they are some slight mold lines on them.

If you're like me and like to pick up some random models this is handy to pick up but it also gives you a chance to see some of the newer models without buying a €30-€40 box. Other available boxes are the Primaris Marines Intercessors, Reivers and the Poxwalkers.

Ebay Loot: Finally getting the original Verminlord


Anyone remember the Verminlord before the end times? Probably not. but its hard not to have a soft spot for the original model for what is essentially the skaven version of a demon prince. I nearly bought the original metal one brand new but when the newer kit came it got pushed to the side for the new shiney.


I have always kept my eye out for one on ebay but as usual it takes a while to get one at good price. Some prices had gotten really high but eventually i managed to pick it up for €14 including delivery. The only negative about it was his tail was missing. I knew that when buying it and it didn't bother me to much because the price was so good. I used a spare tail from the newer verminlord kit and i will add the Doom Glaive from that kit also.

Stay tuned for when i get around to painting this guy up. Should be fun and looking forward to adding him to my painted collection.

Hobby Journal: Blood bowl Orks & Pre Heresy Word Bearers

Since i finished my Skaven blood bowl team i wanted to keep the momentum going with my Blood Bowl teams so up next was the Ork team that i got with the BB starter box. I have said before that these Ork models are some of my favourite and i'm looking forward to painting them.


I kept the same colours that's shown on the box. I like the Gouged Eye uniforms and armour colour. The skin is something i'm only satisfied with now because i use a lot of old paints but i bought waagh flesh for the basecoat and followed a nuln oil wash. I was then just adding goblin green but i'm going to change that from now on

I was wanting to painting something different and i remembered i had a lot of marines left to paint. since i was painting the red on the Orks armour i decided to paint the pre heresy Word Bearers. Im only painting one for now because i was recording it for a painting tutorial for my YouTube channel. What i like painting a marine is once the Mephiston Red base on instead of just plastering the model with a wash, i only apply it in and recess of the armour

Hobby Journal: Rebasing my Skaven Zombies


How long has Age of Sigmar been out? Well over a year now and i still haven't got around to rebasing any units for my Skaven army. I have done 3 or 4 hero models but i wanted to get the whole army on round bases and im starting with my Zombie Skaven unit. So after searching on Ebay i was able to get 50 25mm round bases for a little under €5 (inc delivery).


The Skaven zombies are models from the old Island of Blood starter set so they were on the old square slotta bases. I had to be really careful when cutting the plastic part that's attached to the feet because their feet are really small and its easy to cut the feet straight off.



I love it that Age of Sigmar models are on round bases now. It gives you a chance to make every model that's part of a unit stand out instead of being lost in the old rank and file formation from Warhammer Fantasy

Here is the video version i did for my YouTube channel enjoy and thanks for checking this out!

50 Point Warband lists: Clan Eshin


I came up with 3 warband lists for Skaven's Clan Eshin using the new skirmish rules for Age Of Sigmar. I wanted to make the list more towards the fluff rather than make a powerful list.

List 1: Standard Eshin warband

1 Death runner: 24 pts
10 Night Runners: 20pts
6 Giant Rats: 6pts
There are only two choices in the rule book for Clan Eshin specifically, Death Runner (hero choice) and night runners. So instead of the warband consisting of just two units i thought the giant rats would be a nice fit for Eshin.
List 2: Eshin Muscle  

1 Death runner: 24 pts
1 Rat Ogor: 12 pts
7 Night Runners: 14pts
This list i wanted to go back to what the Eshin Warband was like in the Mordheim game setting. Clan Eshin had a lot more options then and one of them was the rat ogor. To fit the big guy in i had to take out 3 night runners to even the points to 50.

List 3: Mordheim Power

1 Grey Seer: 24 pts
1 Rat Ogor: 12 pts
7 Night Runners: 14pts

This list is Mordheim all the way! But it does have a bit of everything. Swapped the Death Runner out for Grey Seer. I'm not sure how this mix will play in the game yet but i really like it. Three different units with their own way to work on the battlefield.

Hopefully you like these list i made. I didn't make power list but more fun/themed list. I will be making more in the future so keep an eye out!

Spunge's Skaven Blood Bowl Team



I finally got around to finishing my Skaven blood bowl. I absolutely love these models!

I really want to get another box of these in the future because theses look like they can be converted to clanrats, stormvermin and all the Gutter Runners need are some weapons and a decent base!




   








Now i just gotta paint the Orc and Human team! But i have already started on the orcs so stay tuned for more!

Find me on

Spunge Murphy's Audio Cast Ep2

Hey there!
I listen to a lot of podcasts. A lot more than i listen to music on my ipod and i love relaxing and escaping with some good tunes!
So i thought why not have a go at doing my own? And thus Spunge Murphy's Audio Cast was born! The topics i will be talking about will be Warhammer, tv/movies, comic books, college life and more! Wrestling was going to be on it aswell but that ended up as its own episodes called Super Wrestle Bros and joined by a friend of mine.
I'm trying to release on at least every two weeks and have clips released on my YouTube channel so make sure to check it out on itunes!
And if you have any questions for the podcast make sure to let me know!

My 5 Favourite Warhammer Ebay buys


Ah ebay i love you! But my paypal account does not. I usually try to check ebay once a week to see if any really good auctions manage to slip under every ones radar and swoop in with a cheeky bid. It doesn't happen to often but sometimes i can get stuff really cheap.

So here is my 5 favourite buys off ebay so far

Old army books


I just can't let go of the old world yet! It will always be with us! And the old world books have so much lore, history and information that is great for resourcing ideas for armies and models.
The most recent books i picked up were dark elves, orcs & goblins, lizardmen and the empire for €12.64 combined. All were paperback and 7th edition or lower except the Empire book that was the hard back 8th edition book.

Space Marine
Commander and Command Squad



This is probably one of the best buys i have had. Both were from the same seller and got both really cheap. I think i was the only bidder on both items and it feels like they slipped under everyone's radar! Managed to get both at a nice price of €10! Bargin or what!

TT Combat Rift Gates
Time for some scenery! TT Combat has tons of MDF scenery pieces and i didn't know it until i found their rift gates. This wasn't an auction but both were cheap at €9.34 for both rift gates. They are smaller than the GW realm gates but they are a nice alternative.

Skaven Deathrunners

As a Skaven guy i LOVE these models! And i managed to pick up the set of two for just €7! The price of these has gone up on ebay recently and there are a lot less of these up for sale. These 2 models are from the Warhammer Quest bow but for some reason GW has released some of the models separately on there site and the Deathrunners aren't sold seperate yet! AARRGGHH! Shakes fist!

Goblin Spider Riders


I have been trying to get Goblin spider riders for song long! They were never going cheap and eventually i paid €20 for some. But i did get 16 of them! They are from the old battle of skull pass starter set. More pricey than the other stuff but for 16 of them i don't think i would have got a better price anytime soon!


Here's to many more ebay finds at cheap prices! Found some good stuff on ebay? Make sure to let me know!
