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.

Places of Note

These are the sites / blogs / etc that I find myself returning to again and again:

FTW - From the Warp - brainchild of the mighty Ron Saikowski. This site is currently undergoing a re-work, but the archive of fantastic articles is well worth a look.

BoLS - Bell of Lost Souls - a wargaming news site from across the pond - big, busy, regularly updated, always worth a browse

Cool Mini or Not - Vote on the work of others, sometimes with links to their eBay auctions

Tanks and Trolls - some amazing work in here, love the Imperial Titans particularly

Dakka - Great forums, galleries - good place for inspiration
