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.

Just have the Vox operator, guard with flashlight and the man with no arms (will be my platoon standard barer when it arrives!) to finish.

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!
