Unboxing – Citadel Colour Paint Set 1994 (The start of my “Whats in the Box” type things)

I have a rather large collection of models and I constantly berate myself for not documenting them. I tell myself I will do them, I’ve no doubt I’ll do the same here, with this post being the only one for many moons.

I’m a bad writer, just to tell everybody that. Come here for the models, nothing else please 🙂

So here are the phtotos… The lovely lovely paint set. What I like is it has character and a guide on how to paint them. Maybe they still do, I am unsure.

All the photos I could be bothered to take for memories sake 🙂 I know I will love looking back at this blog as much as I do look back at the minis!

How playing the game negatively effects my desire to paint…

Been back in the hobby for 6 months since moving back from Vienna.

For me reading fluff and looking and photos online has already peaked my interested. Like with anything if you surround yourself with something you feel the desire rising. This led to me wanting to play the game.

I packed up all my models for the first time rather excited

I played a small 750pts game about a month ago. This waned my excitement somewhat… to a lot. The player whilst nice enough to help a noob would cheat, not re-roll cocked dice, shot at targets that were out of range. I’m not one to call somebody up on it in a practise game, it seemed odd to me.

Still time passed and last week I thought lets do another game and just avoid this chap. The guy I played with was an absolute joy to play with. However… I like painting, I love it in fact. I love nothing more than a well painted army/miniature. My tutor had nothing of the sorts 🙂 He was a true gamer.

I think going from the idea of showing off my well painted army to realising that nobody gives a flying f**k how well your army is painted did put me off the game slightly 🙂

Still what you gunna do!

The Aim…

I’ve already got a blog. www.hutber.com but I share this with my sister so it seems tainted if I include warhammer on that place.

I must say I would like to program my own blog which could also handle tracking all of my models. Displaying their points values, how complete my goals are for painting. Basically just to keep track of everything I have… Stopping me from buying any more. I do have too much, but its too hard to stop… Its an addiction for sure, I see that now. But I am unable to stop.

Ohh one thing worth mentioning is that I’m more or less illiterate. So there will be many things you will hate about reading this.. If anybody does.

Part of the collection:

My Eldar Army So Far
So much more than 5 months ago, it amazes me really!!

This is the only painted stuff I currently have. Its pitiful.

The aim then, to document everything I own that is warhammer.

Please wish me luck.
