15th December 2019: The Big Bugs

It's been over four and a half years since I finished painting my 40K Marine army, which at the time was the only full army I'd ever painted for any game I've played. Of course, I then went and wrecked it by adding more models to that army that still need painting, so until today I technically had no armies completed.

However, that has changed with the completion of my 40K Tyranids, which has been pretty much my only goal in wargaming for the last year or so.

While I'm glad I've got them done (though I still need to varnish them before I use them), I am a bit underwhelmed at the final results. The reason I sigh is not even due to my shit painting skills, but rather that I wanted them to look a bit more wild and strange when lined up as a full army. The biggest problem is, in order to get them painted as fast as possible, I cut some corners on the large infantry units, and their colours are more dull and bland than what is evident on most of the other units.

I also messed up some of the other units, like trying to do something weird with the Hive Guard only to have them turn out looking like very pale sea creatures. I also chose dark red and light blue for the Shrikes, the last unit I painted, completely forgetting one of the Zoanthropes had already claimed that colour scheme.

But while I'm a bit disappointed, I'm very glad they're done, and I suppose they look alright for a bunch of models that I've mostly collected from ebay over the last 15 years.

I really do wish I enjoyed painting, or at the very least I wish I could do it much faster. It would make all the models I've still got to paint look a lot less daunting.

16th November 2019: Blood Bowl Catch Up

<Old Stuff>

Since nearly all of my wargaming pages were lost in the switch to the new site, I've got plenty of old images and information that I can re-upload whenever I want. Or when I can be bothered.

I figure bringing this site up to speed with the state of my Blood Bowl teams and their adventures is the best and easiest idea to begin with.

Up first are the documents. These documents contain the results for all the Blood Bowl games that I have ever played with my mates over the years, with most of them containing match reports of varying levels of detail.

The following links are to downloadable pdf files.

Seasons 1-4 (1994-1998)
Game Report: Lightning Screws Vs The Stompers (9th August 1996)
Season 5 (2010-2011)
Season 6 (2013-2018)

Following on from the info are the images. This is a gallery of the seven teams I've fully painted so far, with my Skaven, Dwarves and Lizardmen teams still to finish.

16th September 2018: Looking To Finish

After completing the 6mm Nurgle and 28mm Marines, I've been slowly pushing on with completing some other long-ignored projects. Firstly, as it was the easiest task, I finished up the 6mm Khorne army. In addition to the last few things that needed painting, I've slightly updated the Daemon Engines, Lord Of Battle, Banelord, Angron, Bloodthirster and Cannon Of Khorne, so that they more closely match my current painting style.

Pretty happy with the end results, though I think that's mostly because the Banelord's new colours suit the army so much better. It will indeed be an interesting thing to see the entire 6mm Chaos army completed. Hopefully I'll manage to get there one day.

25th August 2018: The Slow Burn

As much as I wanted 2018 to be big on tabletop gaming, it feels instead like it's been more of a slow burn so far. There's been progress on many fronts, like painting and rules writing, and for many games, like Super Dungeon, Epic, Blood Bowl and 40K, but all of the progress has been slow. Speaking of 40K, 8th edition looks like it's finally going to get some attention now we're done with our Blood Bowl league, so hopefully that all goes well. Picking an army in 8th looks like a bit of a chore though, so I've created a new spreadsheet for my Marines to make it much easier.

Pretty much all year I've been itching to update some of the photos for my painted models. With the recent completion of my 40K Marines and 6mm Nurgle, I was able to take advantage of some free time to get snapping. The 6mm Khorne army isn't quite there yet, but is very close, with just the Daemon Engines to paint.

I was hoping that with the two light setup these images would be a lot better than they've turned out. I guess they are better than the old ones, but my camera is pretty shitty. It does weird things, and is not consistent with its colour, even in a consistent lighting situation. Stupid thing.

It was interesting to see all my 40K Marines set out together for the first time since I finished painting them, but I can't believe the army looks so small considering it's been about 25 years since I started to collect it. Still, at least they're all painted, which is far more than can be said for any of my other armies.
