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.

Goodbye old chum

Sad news I'm afraid. We lost one of our dogs to cancer. He was a friendly, patient and gentle giant, far superior in character to many humans I know, and he leaves behind a hole in our lives that will be impossible to fill. Thankfully he was not in any pain.


  1. I'm sorry to hear about your pup. We've got a 12 year old lab that's starting to slow down. I completely understand what you mean about the hole.

  2. Thanks DC - and wishing a long, healthy and happy retirement to your doggy by the way - labs are excellent dogs. Our other dog (see pic behind the masthead of this blog) is a 9 month old PBGV puppy - he's insane and hilarious so he's helped us though a tough time.
