Hey guys and/or girls,

Sorry I haven't been posting anthing recently, I have had a few problems with my computer, but they are fixed now and I shall be trying to post new things as regular as possible.
Also, a bit of good news, I shall be posting a 1000pts Warhammer 40K battle report soon, and expect some more painting photos as I went out and bought the 40k Eldar ghost warriors pack, and now I must paint them all. Fun and exiting, but challenging as there are many and their size is great.
Anyways, I shall be posting things soon, until then I wish you happy gaming, and my the dice gods be with you, and in your favor.

My latest achievements

Recently I've laid off a few of the other figures in order to get a few of my Eldar finished off.
A lot of the stuff I have is second hand stuff that I either repaint completely or fix up.
Some of my latest models that I have finished are my Swooping Hawks and my Dire Avengers.

These are my finished Swooping Hawks with Exarch.
They started out as basically painted second hand troops, but with a little work,
they came out much better.

They started out with no shading, highlighting or basing.

These are my newly finished Dire Avengers.
These ones I painted for scratch and aren't second hand.
They aren't the best paint job, but I like how they came out and they look good
on the field, which was what I was aiming for.

Some of the different stances I arranged into the unit.

The Red Tide

Hey guys,so the other day I played a game of Bolt Action against my my mate. It was my Russian horde verses his German WaffenSS force. The game had it's moments and as all games do, it had its crappy dice roles (most of which were from me). In the end, there weren't many Germans left, to say the least, and the SMG gunners that I thought would be my downfall turned out to be the guys who did the most killing, either because they were good, or because my other guys couldn't shoot straight, but more than likely both.

My starting Russian force. All my men are just regulars including the sailors. One of the main advantages to the Russian army are the amount of SMGs they can have, short range but deadly.
The starting German WaffenSS force (with some paratrooper reinforcements). One of the big advantages of any German army is that their LMGs are better in their rate of fire.

 The German MMG waits for the Russians to appear. Just chillin.
Then they appear, OPEN FIRE!
The remainder of the German paratroopers run for their life as the rest of their squad was ambushed and gunned down.
(BTW, they didn't make it either)
The Russians hide at the end of the road for the Germans who believe they are bullet prove and don't need cover. Didn't help me though, I just can't shhot straight.
The machine gun keeps firing, but they never had enough bullets. Though they did manage to kill the 2nd Lt and his body guard.  

In the end, it was a close game. The Russians winning with a minor victory. There was still a lot of blood spilled, from both sides of the battle field. The snipers and mortars of both sides aren't even worth a mention, mainly because they couldn't hit the side of a barn.

Just startin up

Hey peoples,
I have just started this blog so that I may share my war-gaming and painting experiences with you.
I will try to stay on top of things with regular posts and pictures to follow, but I must warn you that I am not the best painter in the world and I paint to play not for comps or anything, so don't expect anything spectacular to come out of this. Anyways, I will try to post something decent soon, until then may all your games play in your favour, and let the dice gods be on your side.
