Actually played a game of something!

Got a big shock last Saturday when my wife read on the GW website that they had just opened a store just down the road from me! So I jumped in the car and sure enough, a shiney new store for me to play in!

I took my ogres down for veterans night and got shot to peices by a high elf army >:o( lol.
Was a good game, but i was so rusty it was unreal! not having played a core GW game in about 3 years, what should i expect ;o) hopefully as the weeks go on the rust will disappear or can be painted over and hidden enough to get by ;oP

On the painting front I have got the ice blues finished on the remaining 3 troops in my platoon command and squad and should have them finished by tomorrow night.

Oh! and on a begging note, does anyone have a spare banner like my bearer has above? I need another 5 for the rest of the platoons. Have plenty of bits to trade, so feel free to get in touch.

Platoon command squad


Finished the second squad of the first platoon, and have started on the command squad.

First up is the Jnr. Officer

Still some work to do on him but, he is coming on nicely.

The chap i painted with the heavy weapon has been relocated to the command squad and i will make up the others once my banner arm arrives from Bitsandkits ;o)

will try and post a bit more often over the coming weeks, I have been snowed under with problems at work, commissions and to top it off my car has decided to die on me ;o(

But hey ho! its off painting i go!

I'm not dead

Ok, not posted in a little while but i have been busy with a couple of commissions and an HUGE project.... ....Painting my living room!

IG wise, i have started the second squad which is about 2/3 done done now and have started to repaint my previous guard army and bring them over to the new scheme.

I am painting straight over the old troops as although the quality will drop a bit, the pain in the arse time will be cut considerably!

Once the second quad is finished, i will do a platoon command squad and build an additional heavy weapon platform.

Sorry for the lack of pictures, will remedy that over the next few days.

Totally addicted to BASE

Photobucket
Ok, had a play about with the snow/street base for the heavy but still don't like it.

I also made up three infantry bases too.

I quite like the bases plain and may leave the snow off all together, what do you folks think?

Until next time....

Base prototype


Done some work on the weapon options, but nothing too interesting to post of them here yet.

I did however try a new base prototype, went for an urban with a sprinkling of snow.
