The State of my Armies - Deathwing Edition

When the Dark Angels got their 6th edition codex, and an appearance in the starter box, I went a bit crazy and got a few boxes of the new releases. I ended up with a tactical squad, the start of a Ravenwing force, and also a Deathwing force. I painted a couple of models, but soon lost interest.

When I was looking at my collection as I moved house I realised why my attention had drifted, it wasn't the whole Chapter I loved, it was just those cream terminators! They held such nostalgia for me. So a few ebay auctions later and this is what I'm left with...

There's still a bucket load of work to be done on them, and I'm not going to really focus on them, but I do intend to slowly chip away at them, and maybe in a few months time I'll do another post to see how much progress I've made.

Happy Belated New Year!

So it's better late than never, and technically it's still January so it's all good.

Those of you who are followers of the blog will have seen this kind of post before, where I say I'm going to have a really productive year, paint loads of models and post the accompanying blog posts on a regular basis.
Well I'm not going to do that this year, I'm just going to have fun with my hobby, post when I want to, or I've got something cool to share, and hopefully along the way I'll get some models finished and play some awesome games!

Over the past year I've actually ebayed quite a bit of stuff, and narrowed down the amount of armies. I totally ditched the Fantasy, and 30k has become a bigger focus. I haven't actually played a game of seventh edition 40k yet, but hopefully that'll be on the cards this year.

So stay tuned for some hobby progress, more Forge World goodness, and a few battle reports along the way!
