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.
