20 years ago I used to love painting "little metal men" and playing the very first edition of what was to become the hugely successful Warhammer 40K game, so recently I decided to revisit my youth. So far this has consisted of going out and buying some minis, and then wonderful-wife going out and buying ALL THE MINIS IN THE WORLD, and a selection of paints and brushes. With a couple of hours each weekend to paint them, this is going to take a while. There they sit in the corner now... looking at me... judging me... Anyway, one thing that I've found motivational is the wealth of pictures and "how to" guides on other painters' blogs, so I decided to post some of my own humble efforts here. Hope you like 'em.

Purchases propagate productivity... perhaps

...no not in terms of minis bought and painted, but I've been busy all the same.

1. Built a nice glass display cabinet from Ikea, which is now sat there looking empty - adding to the motivational guilt. Yay (?)

2. Borrowed a nice shiny Canon Eos 450D to try to make a better job of my terrible, terrible photography. All suggestions / tips welcome! (best place to start with settings on a DSLR like this would be most helpful).

3. The Eagle Warriors shoulder pads are working out well - pics to follow.

and finally...

4. The best peace-and-quiet-producing tool ever... ladies and gentlemen, I give you: the Rawhide Spiral! - this keeps the doggy busy for HOURS so that I can get some stuff done. I'll leave you with a picture of our boys and a promise of some pics of minis once I get my head around this new camera... happy painting / gaming wherever you are.
