Welcome back intrepid readers,

I finally received my package from GWS, it had the final batch of my paints I had to replace from my dropper bottle fiasco. I also purchased 2 Stern Guard weapon sets. BUT the box only contained 1 said set, so I got on the phone and contacted GWS customer service and a few minutes later, with an apology my missing set was on it's way to me!!! GWS has some amazing customer service.

On the hobby front I am scratch building a Dreadnought drop pod from 5mm foam board and 1mm plastic card stock and an old cereal box, I found the templates at Santa cruz warhammer, I wanted one for my dreadnought but didn't feel that Forge worlds price point was worth the cost of the Item. I will be posting pictures soon of it and what I have been up to hobby wise here in a bit.

On a side note I was so excited to see Forge world doing the Horus heresy books and models, that is till I went and looked at the prices they are asking for this stuff. 70 pound sterling for the book!!!! OMG!!! 70 pounds for a book and the models they have posted range from 70 pound sterling for 3 bikes to over 154 pound sterling for a super heavy that looks like an overgrown Predator!! Now don't get me wrong they look amazing, but the prices IMO don't justify for what you get. It's resin people Not gold bullion!!! Now don't get me wrong I will probably buy the books that contain Blood angels and word bearers because those I can relate to, but I was planning on getting them all. Not now, I have a good job, and i make decent money at my job but I can't justify these purchases to the Lord overseer (A.K.A=Wife). She wouldn't be a happy camper and I would most likely be sleeping in the dog house with my dog Kona!!!

I've also been playing some 6th edition at my FLGS. I've got to say I am having fun!! my battle record doesn't show it I'm 0-1-6 so far with my Flesh tearers, but I'm learning and having fun doing it so that's all that counts.

Till next time keep painting and gaming!!

Battle results

Welcome Back Intrepid Reader,

Well I have a few more Battles under my belt. I am now 0 wins and 5 losses!!! But getting better, I wasn't TABLED in my most recent 2000 point battle against Orks with Necron allies. I lost by Victory conditions. Few things I have learned, Death company with Jump packs lead by a Chaplin Draw LOTS and LOTS of fire. Gabriel Seth is a cool character but ain't all that tough for the points he costs. Deep striking with anything close combat oriented isn't a good Idea.

So I am in a Gaming club that is starting a new campaign 500 point start, and as you win battles you gain Xp and xp unlocks more points and other unit types!! I'm excited to start this league will be definitely using my Flesh Tearers in this league. first 500 Has to be HQ and 2 troop. I got my Ideas for what it will be.

I'm having alot of fun playing, waiting on the rest of my replacement paints to Arrive and somethings i won on Ebay to arrive. Not much more to report as of now.

till next time, Battle on

What I've been upto...

Hello intrepid Reader,

Well it has been up and down for me these past weeks, First I swapped all my Paints to new dropper bottles, I ran into issues with them. I thought I fixed the problem but it has resurfaced, I've resolved the issue by scrapping the effected paints!! which happened to be MOST of my Paints, A very expensive learned lesson to say the least. This has affected my enjoyment of painting so that aspect of my hobby time has been hit and miss.

On the building side of the hobby I have managed to build the rest of my Flesh Tearer army and they sit awaiting primer and paint. My venture into selling unwanted Miniatures on Ebay has borne fruit, I've managed to sell enough to fund my replacement paints, BONUS. I have also picked up some miniatures I was looking for.

Recently I attended Uproar where i saw Godsmack, Stained, and saw a few newer bands I have grown to like since seeing them at uproar.

On the gaming side I haven't gotten to many battles in but will be playing more now that i have found a local Hobby shop that just opened POP! that has Tuesday night Warhammer and Warhammer 40k night. In fact tonight I will be fielding Gabriel Seth and the flesh tearers in a 2000 point list against anyone who would like to play, will post results later.

Well that's about it for this edition of my ramblings on the interwebz.
