Most folks do a year in review on New Years Eve. Then a New Years Resolutions on New Years Day. I've gone and done mine backwards . . . and missed New Years Day. Oh well, nonetheless, here's some highlights from the year that was:
|The first Space Marine. From the Doctor Who boardgame.|
|My First Logo|
|Second Logo. Part GW parody, part homage to HG Wells.|
|My Chaos Warband. Dark Elf leader, three Night Goblins green stuffed horribly into Hobgoblins, and a whole mess of Beastmen from various eras.|
|Amazing greenstuff work here. GW will be calling for my sculpting services any day now!|
|Frankenberry. He'll need some Nurgly friends soon.|
On the Rouge Trader front, I painted up my first set of vintage Space Marines. There's just something about these old minis that the new ones lack. The heft of pewter, the wide open spaces on armour to blend the paints, the cartoonish features. It was just five minis, but a revelation nonetheless.
|Step one. Cut up some pink foam.|
|Step two. Make some buildings and stuff. Step three. Profit.|
|Together, we can win the fight against spinal crackage.|
Lastly, a surprise project was a Space Marine Halloween costume for my son, made at his last minute request. Not going to win any awards at GenCon, but I was pretty happy (or "chuffed" as they seem to say across the pond) at the results, given the limited time, money and talent available for the project. And, its my most popular post to date.
There are lots more projects in store for 2015, and I look forward to sharing some more battle reports and home brewed gaming goodness. Thanks for visiting, commenting, and - if you blog - inspiring me, over the last year. I wish a happy and prosperous New Year to you and yours!
