Hi Everyone. Starting this blog it would be nice to tell everyone a bit about me and my involvement with the hobby.
I have been collecting Warhammer 40k since around 2007 near on the end of 4th edition. I started with the Battle for Macragge box set and started down the path of the Ultramarines. At the time I was never really keen on painting so I just didn't bother with many paints and focused on accumulating a bigger army.
Near the end of 2010 I had almost completed the Ultramarine's Second company and so decided to buy the Daemonhunters codex on eBay (as it was no longer sold on the GW website). Little did I know that four months later, before I had the chance to buy any models, a new codex appeared along with new plastics.
So I own a small force of Grey Knights, based around the two new characters Draigo and Crowe.
Then in 2012 when the new edition was released I bought the hardback rulebook for once (instead of the starter sets) and with the new rules for allied detachments bought a few models from the necron range. Namely Anrakyr and a command barge, some Immortals and a night scythe, and a triarch stalker.
All this time I have never really bothered too much with painting (or just not found the time). It was back in 2011 when I got into painting more and with the new paints released by gw in 2012, I was finally on my way to having a fully painted army.
So now at the end of 2013, I have the complete second company, half of the first company and various array of tanks including a baneblade (which does happen to be fully painted in full blue ultramarine colours.)
So for 2014, I hope to paint through as much of my army as possible, perhaps even do an armies on parade if I get the chance. I will try to take some pictures of my models for you to see when I can.
Looking forward to a fabulous hobby filled year,
