It is Future Year 2018!
I have moved into a new area and am seeking out new life and new civilisations! Or perhaps i'm just after a chance to roll some dice in a new wargaming club.
Thankfully, the closest club, the Newcastle Warlords, is only 15 minutes drive away. Warhammer Fantasy and Warhammer 40k are popular there so I have dug out some neglected, amateur models from half a decade ago to give 40k a punt!
There's a lot of things wrong with these models - lots of mistakes in how they were put together. However, the time when I would have stressed out about that has long since passed and I am going to do the minimum of fussing as I prepare and paint them. I am trying new things as I haven't painted 28mm in years and what I did was for vastly different models such as Dark Age plastics for SAGA or Infinity Ariadna forces.
The picture above is the first finished "test model" of a Space Wolves Long Fang, a long range support model. I'm still learning how to use transfers and get consistent colours on such large, smooth surfaces that armour like this offers.
I hope to be posting a lot more here than over the past few months where I got very little done.
