I started working on an old Ork Stompa that I have had for quite a while.
The model itself I got half-painted and half assembled about 2 years ago and it has sat collecting dust since then.
So, with a burst of activity, and to provide some welcome break from my Imperial Fists now my Dreadnoughts are quite done, I’ve begun to focus on more things again to make way for newer releases. Read the rest of this entry »
I actually finished painting him up a few weeks ago, and I’m pleased with the effort I put into him. I was going to post more progress on him but I’ve been very busy recently and so have only just got around to it, while sporadically working on the model.

Slow progress with the pair of Dreadnoughts continues at my usual glacial pace.

Last week was a busy gaming week for me. Sunday was the annual UK Games Day, of course, I played a total of 3 games of 40k in 1 week and had loads of fun doing it!
2 of the 3 games were against a Sisters of Battle army that came all the way from Scotland to grace me with their brutal presence. The other was against a regular adversary of scary Tyranids which appear to get more difficult each time I play them.
To say the least, I learned that Sisters of Battle are pretty tough and have an odd angle within the meta of 40k. They are relatively squishy when compared to Orks but pack a mean punch with lots of fast and maneuverable units packing bolters and flamers in abundance. Read the rest of this entry »
