- I started painting miniatures for D&D in the early 80's. Transitioned to scale models (mostly 1/35 Scale armor) through high school and college. I joined the U.S. Marine Corps in 1998 and had a long break from the hobby until a fellow Marine introduced me to Warhammer 40K 3d edition in 2003. I started buying a ton of stuff (just about everything except Eldar, Chaos and Imperial Guard) with my focus mostly on Space Wolves and Orks. Deployments to Kosovo, Liberia, Iraq and Afghanistan put a damper on painting and my stuff sat untouched until I left the service in July 2011. Now my stuff sits mostly untouched as my job as a Project Manager in the Subsea Oil and Gas industry eats up most of my time.
I have set a goal to improve my painting skills, with the hopes of eventually progressing to competition level.

Why choose Space Wolves over other chapters?
‘They are desperate, and as savage as beasts.’
Magnus lost his smile.
‘I no longer think of them as animals, Ahmuz, though I once did. I now think of them as the purest of us all. Incorruptible. Single-minded. The perfection of my father’s vision.’

So I finally got permission from She-Who-Must-Be-Obeyed to buy a Cang the Implacable! Here he is in all his boxed and wrapped glory! I plan to unwrap all the parts this weekend (If I can get the picture shelves on my Honey-Do list built and finished in a reasonable amount of time) and get more pictures of CoolMiniorNot Resin-y goodness posted for your viewing pleasure.

Posted my last entry to see that it is in paragraph format! WTF? Went back and edited older posts into paragraphs so as not to be accused of damaging the eyes of anyone who happens to read my drivel!

A little while back, I started trying to (unsuccesfully) paint black. Thread found here:
As Dragonsreach was kind enough to point out, I was following a technique for larger scale minis that did not translate well to 28mm. So based off the recommendations of a few forum members and youtube reviews, I ordered the Andrea Black paint set from The Michigan Toy Soldier Company: http://www.michtoy.com

A few minutes ago, I posted my first ever Blog. I typed out my thoughts in lovely paragraph format only to have the post crunched together into one large paragraph. Did I violate some sort of Blog rules by using proper writing format? Is the Blog the death of the written language as we know it, or is it one of the signs of the Mayan Apocalypse?

I learned recently that a large tax refund, high-speed internet access and copious amounts of alcohol, may not be the best of combinations. I awoke the next morning after combining the three to find that in addtion to a few other items, I had ordered not one, but three finecast miniatures from Games Workshop. Fortunately, the models fit into the Tomb Kings army I have been collecting over the past several years. I had ordered the High Liche Priest, Prince Apophas, and the Necrotect. She-Who-Must-Be-Obeyed
