Yes, I crack me up too. With my clever wordplay and punnery. Anyway… I went and started to fiddle with some of my not yet finished marines and figured I’m here, my camera’s there… I’d just mentioned I’d post pictures when I bothered to take them… and so here I am, again. Well, then Tejech’s comment made me go… “well… someone’s sort of reading this i should be nice and give them some pictures.” Not pretty pictures of course, because this is the grimdark 41st century, and of course because I’m still very much an amateur. >.< Photo’s after the break!

Got my Terminators based which is nice, painted metal bits on a few more Orks… nothing much really as I’ve still not got the paint to do anything interesting now. Until January sometime. >.<;

Waiting for my paypal transfer to go through so I can order the bitz I need from bitzbarn to make my Gue’vesa.

Been a while since I last ranted… possibly due to the fact that I’ve recently acquired my first set of Warhammer 40,000 miniatures. Nothing fancy shmancey or anything, just the Assault on Blackreach set, gives you some movement rulers, dice, condensed rulebook, templates and a small amount of both Space Marines and Orks.

I’ve gotten most of the Marines painted up. Went pretty simple for my first set of painting. Based them black, painted them Regal Blue, gave them an Arshurmen Blue wash… and that was pretty much it. apart from a dry brushing of Boltgun Metal and Chaos Black to give them a roughed up appearance. I need a couple colours before I can finish up though. Gold and some form of brown for belts/straps/tassets. I am however pretty much done with my Dreadnought. I could have tried to file off the mold lines but I’d have to repaint in patches if I did that. Which could only add to the look I was going for I suppose.
