About this blog

So ... first blog!


I've decided to start a blog here just to catalogue my armies and projects that I currently own and that am still actively collecting. Just somewhere to drop my thoughts periodically without me taking over other threads with "look at me" posts of my minis :p


In this initial entry I have only included photos of those models that are all fully painted. I will add more entries over time as more gets added.


Current armies owned are:


Astra Militarum:




Space Marines homebrew chapter, "The Winged Lancers:"




Tau Empire, custom paint job (no sept name decided yet:




Raven Guard beaky phobos dudes:



And finally my Grey Knights. (I definitely need a better picture so I will probably edit when I get around to taking one):

Tackling my Tau - Kitbash time!

OK so remember when I said I had a plan for the Stormsurge crew?   See, the trouble with T'au kits is you get so many extra bits, but because you don't get any extra torsos, you can never do anything with them. It's like with old marines, you always got tons of spares, but never enough legs to make more marines.   Well, seeing as I built the Stormsurge with the closed cockpit piece from www.thecustombit.com, I now have two spare torsos! One of them probably needs green stuff

Tackling my Tau - Stormsurge Part 3

Right so in this entry the construction will be completed.   First task here was to decide how to do the main gun. I know that in most circumstances I will want to take the Pulse Blastcannon, just because it is so damn powerful! However, I much prefer the look of the Pulse Driver Cannon, as it is longer and doesn't have so many pipes (I hate painting, and specifically highlighting, pipes). I eventually settled on building the rear section of the pulse driver cannon:    

Tackling my Tau - Stormsurge Part 2

Made some good progress on the Stormsurge today. Firstly, I built the weapon "arms":     Decided to just go with the flamers as I like the look of them the best. I probably won't choose the frag projector and I hate painting burst cannons ... all the bits that should rotate freely, do so, so far. Might need to glue the flamers later though as they seem to droop a bit when the thing is upright.   Main body section was next:   I've not built the open

Tackling my Tau - Stormsurge Part 1

OK. So it's time to do something about the last bunch of grey plastic sprues I have. Most of my leadweight is composed of built and primed or partially painted stuff, but I do have a bunch of T'au stuff still on sprues. This is, of course, the most exciting stuff, as it is the most like new stuff! In the photo below are two Crisis Battlesuits left over from my Start Collecting! box that my wife bought me for Christmas more than five years ago, a handful of pathfinders and the Stormsurge that I b
