9th June: Surviving A Blizzard

Latest News

6th May 2019

It's been a long while since the story section last had any attention. A while back, I gave up on the idea of ever finishing my Star Wars stories, so instead have typed out a rough outline as to what may have happened during the rest of the saga. I've also expanded the names & characters section with images where possible.

Did some work behind the scenes of the game blog page so that the game filters now work much better.

A couple of months back I found loads of old notes about all the old Epic Space Marine games we played, starting from back when I was in high school. I thought it would be a good idea to type them all up as best I could, and upload them all. While I was at it, I also converted the Epic-S and 40K battle reports from their PDF state to HTML, and they can be found on the Warhammer 40K page.

22nd April 2015 - Six-Limbed Freaks

After the monumental feat of finishing all my Marines, I wanted to keep that momentum going and pushed on to my Tyranid army. I could have gone for Eldar, Tau or Guard, but honestly I think it very unlikely I'll ever finish those armies. Painting so many troops all the same colour, especially for the Guard, would be too boring for me to handle these days. I chose the Nidz as I've always wanted to paint each unit a different colour, just like how I did my 6mm Tyranids many years ago, and thought it would keep me more interested.

For the most part it's helped, and when I've finished the Warriors I'm working on I should be about 50% done with the army. For me, in just a few weeks, that's pretty good going.
I've mostly wanted to continue painting each unit just to see how strange they will look when I'm done, especially the yellow Hive Tyrant which I let Scoob pick the colours for.

But I've had some issues. When washing the black Hive Tyrant, I noticed the wash had dried cloudy or milky in places, rather than black like it's supposed to. Turns out, the new GW washes don't like it when you thin them with water. Damn it GW, sort your shit out.
