Where I am at


I have finished with building the blog and now its time to start updating it.

As I have said the army I'm working on is a WE Splinter force. Basically they work a bit like the Red Cosairs and are like pirates scavenging for ships, equipment, weapons etc etc. Also not all the CSM are World Eaters as they pick up recruits and strays as it were. It is a one god army as I just think it gives a more unified theme, but not spoiling the chaotic feel.

I like to paint with a realistic style and although not as skillful as say "Eavy Metal" painters I prefer the final outcome and I love getting down to check LoS in a game with realistic paint jobs!

For the tanks I want a weathered feel and there's nothing quite like this book for tips and techniques - Forge World Master Class. I am going to be discussing a lot of the techniques here, but seriously don't just take my world on it. It'll be one of the best £26 you spend on this hobby. You get a high quality book (like the IA books) and some really advanced techniques that I haven't seen anywhere except in here. It is also really well illustrated so just buy it!!

I am just coming off a major loss in mojo and need to kick my ass into action! So there should be some proper pics this week!

I have finally done it! My own blog!!!

let me tell you a bit about myself. Im 32 years old and have been in the hobby since about '91. I did take a long break from about 97 - 07 and came back at the end of 4th. I loved how the system had been simplified from the old days of 2nd. I really love how the game flows in 5th.

I spend most of my time in my attic painting and procrastinating. What with everybody being old and everyone having lives its hard to get together and have gaming sessions. So we all tend to go to two or three tournies in the year. Which is great although we dont really place that well!

Armies I am currently working on is a Splinter pirate World Eater force and a blood crusher Chaos Daemon list.

I need to get the CSM done for the middle of November for ToS tourny at Warhammer World so I made this blog to help me!

I have been using Orks up until now, and although the are not finished (they never will be!!!) I have a few list variants - im going to make a kan list as all i need is another big mek and a pack of kanz.

Please feel free to browse the other pages to see my work. You can catch up to see where I am with stuff and then keep me inline with my deadlines!
