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.

...and then there were four...

Almost there with the Legion of the Damned now - here's Torchy McFlamerson:

Which means the squad now looks like this:

Just one more to go!


  1. Nice result, and a good pace of progress. just wish mine were speeding along as well, I seem to have had some "stalling" of late.

  2. Thanks Karitas - I'm still off work on sick leave for another week so I'm trying to make the most of my time! - when I go back to work it will be hard to keep up the pace with the painting. Shame really, but given the state of the markets at the moment it's unlikely I'll be retiring early!
