I'm not a religious man. but even I have felt the need to make a pilgrimage. I'm sitting with a troll beer waiting for my Fat Bloke burger to turn up. I am at the home of this hobby of ours... Warhammer World in Nottingham. I'll post pics when I get back to my computer, though that may take a week.

I'm not going to find geek enlightenment here, and its unlikely I'll recognize anyone here, but I'm still loving the atmosphere!
shame about the music piping into Bugman's...

Amazing or Wank

I've had an idea for some time now, based on BMF speak. When my and my mate see something good or bad, we dispense with the thesaurus, and stick with 3 options.
No wows, no cools, no unnecessary adjectives.

3 options.

Either something is Amazing, Wank, or in seldom cases, Absolutely Incredible.

All of my occasional reviews from now on, as well as none GW related internet finds will be showing on my other blog... You've guessed it....

ManFlu - it's real

I feel like crap. I've had this damned cold for 2 weeks now, and I keep getting knocked down again. Bah!

I've not been entirely negligent of my painting etc, but it's definetly slowed down a fair bit. I ended up completly building the High Elves from t'North, barring the purchase of the Island of Blood box - painting it will more likely take ages, but at least I'll have a relatively effective fantasy army...

Archmage, level 4

Noble/Prince on steed


20-30 Seaguard

20-30 Seaguard

10 Archers

5 Dragon princes

8ish Silver helms

20 total Sword masters (exact unit size/s to be determined)

5 Shadow warriors

Great Eagle

3 Reaper Bolt throwers

All this comes to around 2000 - 2750, depending on items and banners. I've put to together several versions around this basic idea, points and magic stuff will hopefully be decided through experience! I'm painting the first 5 dudes, and as soon as I'm happy, I'll throw up some pics/

I'm also slowly working my way through the Sons of Malice - I've finished the Devestator squad, chugging away on the assault squads, and I'm working on the first 3 terminators... There's more... everything on those guys, and I'm having to modify painting techniques a bit.
