Epic Armageddon and Specialist Games update
It's been rather a long time since an update for various life related reasons which need not be mentioned here. As a result, I've rather neglected 'the hobby', but I'm pleased to be back with a vengeance. I'm mooting joining a gaming club (which I've never done before) so that I don't have to rely on the odd one or two friends who fancy a game so I can get some regular experience. With that in mind, I've purchased the Forgeworld book Monsterous Arcanum and the rather spectacular warpfire dragon. I'm going for a dark purple colour scheme with very few colours otherwise, just some extreme highlights. Considering it's a resin/plastic hybrid, it came together very easliy. I greenstuffed the gaps and undercoated it black. It has currently had a few washes of naggaroth night. I will update when I've taken the time to do more!
In other news, I have now managed to purchase my own copy of Warhammer Quest (after months of deliberating!). I was also surprised, and rather pleased, at finding all three treasure packs inside (something not mentioned on the listing). I think I could open up my own Specialist Games shop now that I'm the proud owner of this, along with Necromunda, Warhammer Quest, Space Hulk (1st and 3rd editions), Dreadfleet and Mordheim.
My current flight of fancy is Epic Armageddon and I'm building up a good collection of Eldar and Space Marines. I have recently purchased the Forgeworld Epic Warhound titans and will show some images once I've assembled them and given them a coat of paint.
A you can see from the images, the troops are mostly accounted for - I now need to build up the vehicles. What you can't see in the images above are the Forgeworld wave serpents which will be transports for either the guardians or some of the aspect hosts. I hope to update much more regularly now, as long as my searches for Epic Tyranids don't bankrupt me!
