Ending of one blog... moving to another.

Decided that I have a hard enough time keeping up with even 1 blog, much less 2 so I'm ending posts on this one and switching over to my other one: http://spaceminion.blogspot.com/

I'm going to probably drop most of the space news (but not all!) and make it my hobby blog as well. I hope the 1 or 2 of you that actually followed this "once upon a time" will move over there.

Whoa! an update!

Just finished painting some IG stuff for 40k. Going for the urban camo, but not liking it. I think I need to add something to break up the mono-chromatic look. since I'm using some green and brown in the base, I think I'll add some like color. Probably a grey-green.

Imperial Guard (updated forces)

I think out of all my forces over the last year, the Imperial Guard have changed the most. Partly due to the wonderful birthday gift of a Valkyrie from my brother, but also finding an older 20 man box of catachans at a local hobby store, I've changed it to a more unified looking army.

Right now the Valk has only been base coated and the new guard haven't even gotten that far, but as it stands I now have 2x 3 squad platoons of catachans plus a mortar squad, missile launcher squad and a melta squad.

Wow, that's a lot of catachans to paint.

I'll post a pic either later today or tomorrow of some of my more "finished" units--which ain't much. I think the lesson of getting your troops together before painting them was a failed ploy. Better to do it in small bites.

Either way, here's a grand list of everything I have for the IG (its a long list):

See told ya...

New update is here. No pics though although I'm gonna work on it. In the last year I've made many changes to my lists for all my armies and will be updating each in the next week.

To be honest this year was a bad year for me when it comes to wargaming. Barely played anything. Been too busy with work. My fault. But my wife and I are trying hard to get out of debt so I'm working as much as possible.

I'm hoping to get gaming more and next week is a biggie. At Gajo games in Sandy, UT there's going to be a game for Flames of War with the Bridge Too Far armies. My British Airborne are gonna get a workout. I'm gonna take pictures so I'll have a small battle report. But its going to be a game stretched out over several tables with about 15-20 players so it'll just be about my part.

Christmas break is here...

And that means free time which I can only hope means WARGAMING! I've made a tentative plan to play the following with Mark, my brother:
Space Hulk
Battletech (using the intro rules and plastic minis)
Future War Commander
That's all so far, but I'm hoping for more time permitting!
