Space Hulk ....

Hello troops,

I thought I would add some more elements to my blog .... at least some more in the gaming world.

By now many of you have heard or seen that Games Workshop has brought Space Hulk back to life. In the scheme of things the word "life" is more "limited edition". Limited Edition also allows an absurd money amount to be applied to the product. The website is listing the limited edition game at $99.00. WOW. In this day and age ... $100 for a game system seems crazy although some will buy it.

Setting the price aside I will say that GW has overdone the set with some beautiful miniatures and game board. The quality of the system seems great. I don't believe that they have changed any of the game mechanics nor have I heard that past veterans had any problems with the old rules.

Here are some of the pictures from GW's American website ...

They look great .... but with a $100 dollar price tag it is safe to say that it will not be joining this army anytime soon.

Comments, suggestions, observations ? Feel free to chime in ....


Smoke signals ...

Hello troops ...

I am still here and still working on the models. Only thing is I have no camera to post pictures at the moment. It stinks not being able to have pictures in the update. I am working on it I promise.

My friend recently gave me a Badger 175 airbrush. Any tips or suggestions ? I am new to the airbrush scene but look forward to using it.

Feel free to visit my other blogs as well. Become a follower and join in the fun. The other blogs I run mostly deal in RPG lands. At this time that includes Star Wars and Battletech.

I was also thinking of starting a web comic as well. But that is in the future ....

Hope all is well .... be safe. Roll some dice and get those paintbrushes moving ....

Working without pictures ....

Hello Troopers,

I am still working on getting pictures to the computer. I apologize for the situation.

As far as "works in progress" goes ... it is coming.

I still haven't gotten to dull coat the command troops. It has been so humid .... and I have been told humidity may ruin the final coat. If anyone has any suggestions please speak up.

I have been basing the bazooka troops with fine play sand and not sure how the results will look to me once the paint is applied. I took one stand and base the majority of it with fine base sand. Next I took a layer of the original basing I was using and applied. I will see which method I like better. It is definitely a WIP.

The mortar teams and LMG teams are now getting paint applied as we speak. The rest of the company will be getting the mold line sanding and placed on sticks to be primed this week.

On a future note. A local tournament is going to be themed EW and I am looking to field an EW German army. Any suggestions would be great.

Keep the paint flowing and the dice rolling !
