Blog discription

What will you find here? Ramblings from an aging gamer-miniature painter. When I first started out in this hobby computers were in their infancy and finding other gamers could only be done by going to conventions or as in my case bumping into somebody who happened to see me reading "Panzer Leader" on the school bus. Look how far we have come! The internet has allowed our small community to be able to connect on a level I never dreamed of when I was but a small lad. What I do hope you will find here is something interesting from one wargamer/miniature painter to another. I paint miniatures somewhat decently, so I will be posting some pictures of my work, and perhaps a review or two of games and/or miniatures. Most of all this is just about having fun and anything I post here is meant to be for that reason.

WIP: Emperor's Children 30K Horus Hersey

One of several projects I have going simultaneously, Today I felt like painting purple (that's right Skip, Purple! Live with it or I'll paint your horses purple!!!;)). So out came my Emperor's Children. I screwed up reading the 30K supplement codex (basically an Army book of what you can and can't have) and thought I could equip my regular Marine squads with the weapons choices I made. Turns out I was looking at the Veteran squad (Elite choice instead of regular Troop choice). Oh well, it's fantasy Science fiction so ha!

The above is my Contemptor Dreadnought I started building. I talked about and showed the build pictures of this in a previous post. Here it is with a little work done to it.

Here is one completely painted Emperor's Children Marine to show you what the squad will look like when finished.

...and above is the group shot of my Dread and Veteran Squad halfway there.

Tomorrow I get to have the Dentist dig around in my mouth to fix some problems, so will see how I feel when I get home if I can knock some more of these boys out.



  1. Beautifully painted Space Marines, Kevin! Regards, Dean

    1. Thank you Dean, I never thought I'd paint anything purple but I am having fun with these.
