The Harlem Scuttle

So it’s been almost two years since my last post. Why the silence? Well, my sight has declined quite a bit. Wargaming has become much harder as a result, and I decided to hang up the dice…

Until some old mates got back into 40k and encouraged me to give it a crack.

“I’ll just get one box,” I said, “if I can paint it, awesome. If not, no big loss.”

Well, here’s the result.

They’re not as good as I once could have, and it wasn’t easy to paint them, but I can still manage, which pleases me greatly.

Termagants 02

I settled on Tyranids because I think they’re one of the easiest armies to paint. Further, though they’re not my favourite army (I’ll always be a Guard player at heart), I’ve always liked them.

This will be my second Tyranid force (my first was quite small) and I’m looking forward to getting more done and playing some games. I’ll need some assistance with that, but we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it.

So that’s that. Expect to see more 40k in the future, and hopefully some after action reports within the next couple of months. Or at least by the end of the year.
