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.

Tactical marines

Here are the latest additions to the Eagle Warriors - part of the Black Reach tactical squad

...just a couple more to go then I can get started on those terminators.


  1. Those look really great! I'm very impressed.

  2. Thanks DC - glad you like them! - I'm pleased that my marine force is finally starting to take shape as marines were my first love when I started collecting all those years ago...

  3. Yeah I started back in '94 and didn't play much once I hit high school. It's a whole different game now.
