So, here it goes!

Hurray blog post number 1, official an all that,

after experimenting with posting on my phone i find it inadequate for what i have to say, and show.
thats right! show!!!   yes i have some lovely pictures to post!
unfortunately, that means i am going to have to classify what most of this blog is about.

so here we go,
Warhammer 40k stuff, yaaay
what i am currently working on:  World eaters, nom nom

 Lord Zhufor the headless, and armless, hehe well he is a work in progress, ive magnetized his head, and ill paint him in seperate parts, all that lovely detail needs to be handled carefully.  I already lost one of his skull spikes/trophy racks and to replace it, hurray for ebay.
 mmm forgeworld parts for more world eater lovely ness, only parts for 9 here tho, a head and a shoulder went off to a nice person to make me a custom kharn conversion, hes done like 3 already for others, and they just keep getting better (its timjim/dezartfox over at the-vanus-temple) very handy that he lives so close, i can go over and hug him if the work is as amazing as it looks to be, only a month or so to go before it should be ready :D

p.s. anyone got good tips for removing mould release? damn stuff seems immune to fairy liquid
 skull champ numero uno!   took me a while to decide on what kinda powerfist to give him, (cmon GW add one to the bezerker box already, in fact just update the whole line of CSM, those models are so out-dated!) so i settled with forgeworld again and their pre-heresey option, very nice option, might carve an even nicer khorne symbol into it, bit of practice on something first tho.

 ah the old beserkers of mine, without any forgeworld goodies, or power fist for that matter, better hack one on methinks.   this is the new paint scheme im going for, defo gonna change the skulls there, give them a brown/bone undercoat before white highlights like the next model has.

was trying out a green wash on this, tell me what you think, personally i think it mite be to bright, perhaps thats the blood red highlights being to thick hmmm.    gold needs more devlan or sepia too
 love this model, its a must have for any chaos army imo.   also a little hint to my other project that has kinda stalled,  lovely dark angel robed army!! got a command squad, a tactical and some assult marines already painted, gonna have to take pics of them too soon, but ill leave that for when ive got nothing else to post yeah :D

personal challenge of 1 post every 2/3 days methinks, prefably more, but i dont want to burn myself out, saying that im way to lazy, so more mite be better, get into a rhythm

also, do you like the base? micro art studio chaos bases, lovely lovely item.

and heres the "to be painted" queue at the moment, the 10 forgeworld, and the 10 old old old models, i like the deep red almost purple they have, but it will have to go, in favor of dirty dirty blood reds, i see an order of weathering powder in the future.

on a side note, ive give all my forgeworldians chain axes, nice touch i think. ive had to butcher a few models for that tho, considering theres 9 more still to do. also from my leftover parts ive planned another 10 "normal khorne" marines, with bolters and those nifty chainsaw blades for guns!  ermm bayonet stylee also a nice theme way to get meltaguns in the army!  more updates on that when i get the goods tho

peace off, and ciao and sayonara etc etc etc etc
