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.

Classic artwork

Found the old two-page spread of the Horus vs Emperor face-off that my fave diorama in Warhammer world was based on - it was from White Dwarf 131:

...and it looked like this:

Cool eh? :o)


  1. Yes it is. Great days in GW history. The Bill King story is really something too.

  2. Indeed - the story is cool, Porky - just the kind of thing that got me into the hobby all those years ago :o)
