New Life into Old Lead Pt III

As part of my current Death Company project, I had another opportunity to conduct a renovation on one of the old painted miniatures in my collection. A chance to right the wrongs as it were, of a heretical (as far as the Codex Astartes is concerned) colour scheme, with the added benefit of a few years improvement in my painting skills; how much improvement is debatable!

Written in Blood : The Blood Drinkers return to 40k

As regular readers of this Blog will be well aware, I'm a huge fan of 40k lore; the ever expanding stories and history that makes up the Hobbies setting being as, if not more important to me than the game itself.

One of my consuming passions is the constant hunt for canon material relating to my chosen Space Marine Chapter, The Blood Drinkers; they've been with me since the start of my 40k journey some 25 years ago and as such have defined much of my Hobby experience.

Remember the Fallen

When one man says to another, "I know what let's do today, let's play the war game."... everybody dies.

A day to remember all those lost to conflict and a hope that one day War really will be confined to a tabletop.

The Shadow in the Warp : Silence from The Veil's Edge

Just a quick post to reassure any and all who are interested that I'm still out here and haven't gone the way of Maelstrom Games (Ouch! Too soon? Sorry).

The cursed Daemons of Workload have been casting their damnable binding rituals again and the other week my Astropathic Choir suffered a very messy Fatal Exception Error which shut off all communications with the rest of the Verse (my modem decided to die).

However, I've now received a new shipment of Astropaths from Holy Terra and with some much needed leave on the horizon, I should hopefully be back to Hobby activity presently and the accompanying waffle I send out into the void should soon follow.

You can't stop the signal...
