The Challenge

As something of a communal New Years resolution the guys of WS10 have all banded together to create and participate in a painting challenge. This is in part for our upcoming tournament as there is a painted army restriction (three colour minimum, no grey plastic) but also as a way of getting through the mounds of new models we all got for Christmas. My challenge is to build up my Black Legion forces which I can do now that my exams are finally over!! As I keep spending money without actually painting anything I've also decided to resurrect the painting points system to go alongside it.

The One With the Surprise Game

A couple of weekends ago I met up with my Apocalypse ally, Nick, for him to become my next enemy... Strictly in a friendly match... Yeah...

The match was 2000 points between my Chaos Space Marines (oh yes, no Daemon allies this time) and Nick's Necrons which was the very first time I've ever played against them. Having never really paid much attention to their codex I didn't really know anything about them which meant the entire game was a 5 turn learning experience for me. I can very confidently say that they are an army I'll take more notice of when their new codex hits.

Happy New Year!!

Yes it's that time again where hobbyists everywhere take stock of all the models they've acquired over the last twelve months and resolve to paint them all before buying anything new and I don't plan to buck the trend. In fact I'm going to make the same promise and the only time I will buy anything new is if I need it for a game (as I've done recently) or if Games Workshop suddenly throw out a whole new bunch of models for my CSM or Daemons (I've got enough Tyranids and Undead to be getting on with for now!!)
