Reinforcements have arrived!

Right then people, time to sit up and take notice, as a very nice (and very tall) man in a brown uniform knocked on my door this morning (thankfully about ten minutes after my poorly 1-year-old had woken up from her nap).

Hobby update - 17/10/16 - don't get distracted!

Hi all,
Monday again, it's must be time to update you the progress of my various hobby projects from the last week.

Looking back, I can see that last week I showed you the first three terminators of my monthly challenge. I can proudly now show you the first combat squad completed!

I've really enjoyed painting these fellas up, and even though each one has taken a couple of days to complete, I've not got bored of them yet (must be that whole no batch painting thing)!

That being said, my good buddy Tom did provide me with some underhanded distraction on Thursday, as I became the proud owner of another box of crisis suits and a broadside. It's almost as if he doesn't want me to finish our challenge I think!
Still, I ploughed on regardless for a whole day, getting this pod weathered at last.
 I've gone pretty heavy on the weathering on this one, mainly because I can easily imagine the paint on a drop pod is probably the last thing on an artificer's list when returning from a campaign.

After that I did get sidetracked, and put together the broadside suit and primed it ready for painting. It's actually the last model I needed to be able to field the retaliation cadre from the Tau book so with the new suits I should finally be able to actually field a farsight enclaves Tau list, though I still need to do plenty of work on that.

I further caused myself a few problems by starting the paintjob on that when I should really have been painting terminators. Oh well, nevermind, I've got most of Saturday in my local stockist teaching people to paint so hopefully I'll be able to bash out a few terminators then instead.

In the meantime, here's the first WiP of the Broadside with my new Tau colour scheme, sans highlighting, then a few more pics of the terminators.

The brotherhood expands - introducing our third member

Brotherhood page banner

Greetings all,
It's been fairly quiet on the brotherhood front externally for the last few days, but believe me the gears of the machine have been whirring away frantically in the background, I think my Whatsapp is about to overload from the pressure and I've actually had to recharge my phone more than once a day for the last week, which is unheard of!

Everybody loves a man-cave!

Greetings all,

no draft posts in the queue close to publishing, didn't post anything yesterday, but feel the need to publish something. Welcome to some random thoughts from my head and a quick update on everything I'm doing hobby-related at the moment!

Hobby update - 10/10/16. Consider yourself terminated.

Greetings all, time for another hobby update and as you can see from the above, I've been very much focused on getting the Cataphractii terminators painted and the squad is now 30% done, hoping to get another mostly done tonight.

40k giveaway - win a free Razorwing Jetfighter!

Greetings all!

A few days ago (probably more) I posted up to say that I would be running a giveaway to celebrate hitting 400 posts on my blog, and I've finally got round to doing something about it!

So, what are the rules?

1. UK entrants only (postage costs abroad stretch my budget too far at this point I'm afraid)
2. You must sign up to follow the blog using the google+ gadget on the left hand side of the blog.
3. Leave a comment below stating why you love my blog and an excuse as to why you haven't signed up to follow it already ;). Only kidding, you do need to leave a comment, however the topic for your reply is 'what is the one thing I'd like to see included in a tournament to encourage fluffy, narrative led gaming and list building.
4. You have until the 31st October to enter, at which point I will choose the winner from amongst the entrants based on what I consider to be the most interesting, original and innovative response. Clearly therefore my decision is final.

I will then contact the winner to arrange delivery of the item.

Good luck, and get your thinking caps on people!
