First update of the year.... progress continues.

As the title says this is my first update for the new year as I finally managed to get a couple of squads finished of whilst watching the six nations rugby this weekend.   Assault squad - with custom bases made from 3d printed bits of ruins:     Infernus squad - The final miniatures from my Leviathan box set to be painted:     These should of been the final mianture to paint up for my Homebrew maine chapter, but as always I couldn't stop myself

New Year - Taking Stock.

Happy New Year folks!   Finally had time to sit down and write a blog post, so thought it would be an ideal point to look back on the previous year and forward to 2024 in terms of my hobby time:   2023 was a fairly good year in terms of productivity with painting, etc, but a bit sparse in terms of actual gaming. Last year I managed to paint 5 different kill teams with a 6th half finished, but managed to play zero games. I continued to expand my home brew Primaris chapter -The

Kill Team project......

I'm about to start a new job and have had a couple of weeks off since leaving the last one. The idea was to use some of the time painting to clear a bit of my backlog, but as with most of my hobby projects, I thought of something new to do and immeadiatly got sidetracked by that idea. The big idea was simply this, to build and paint a number of kill teams, enough to have a slection so I could invite some friends round for a short kill team campaign and have teams ready to go without all the hass

Further progress.....

Not sure progress is the right word as a nice shiny box full of goodies arrived, adding much more to my pile of shame: So I got stuck in and assemebled an undercoated the Kroot, even made a custom Pech token using a eagle from the bits box. Not sure I'm going to keep the Imperial Navy team, so left them on the sprue. Clipped and assembled all the terrain in the box, very impressed with the kit , highly detailed, but also means it's going to take longer to paint. Now only got find time

About last weekend...

Last Saturday saw my most recent battle against one of my oldest friends and long time opponent Graham, it was a 2000pt game using the open war card deck and got the domination objective, with long table edge deployment and storms as the twist reducing movement and advances by 1".  I ended up winning quite convincingly with my opponent conceeding at the end of his second turn, reallising I was already ahead on victory points and he didn't have enough models left at that stage to be ab

My armies

Thought I would list out all the different forces in my vast collection  with a rough idea of the points total of each based on the current lists I keep in Battlescribe, just to give you an idea.  +Dark Angels +  - approx 4500pts  Dark Angels were my first love in the original Rogue Trader days with the then black painted RTB01 plastic beakie marines being my first unit (even if they were later repainted as Nightlords with the addition of a few spikes). This collection is not really a

An Intro...

I guess I should start with a little about my self and my hobby background.  It all started with this, my first miniature which I proudly bought for 50p from my FLGS back when I was 12, which I excitedly took home and badly painted with my dads Humbrol enamel paints. From then I was hooked, I had a group of friends who were similarly interested one of whom had a 2nd edition copy of Warhammer fantasy battles and so the collection began to grow to the first small army, playing battles on
