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.

Guardians complete!

Wow, this having-time-off-work thing is a hoot - miniatures disappearing from the to-do list with alarming speed. Here's the rest of the Altansar guardian squad all done and dusted. I've also a made a start on a Wave Serpent to carry them, but not quite happy enough with that yet for a picture...


  1. I've got some Altansar around
    somewhere as well. I think yours may look a little better than mine though... damn you!

  2. Cracking job mate - the Wraith Lord with the scythe is fantastic - I may have to shamelessly steal that idea if you don't mind...

  3. The Wraith Lord is pretty cool. Feel free to steal the idea, I've stolen it once already!

  4. Cool - that makes me feel better!
