This weekend I attended First Founding’s Octoberfest in Chessington, South West London.
Work has been insanely busy of late, so I have not found the time to get much painting in.
My cityscape scenery has been left in an almost finished state, but before I move on to more urban buildings, I need to finish a project that has already been started.
I have finally settled on a Space Marine Chapter after years of flipping between several.
I liked the idea of creating my own chapter as that gives me much more flexibility regarding the rules and Chapter Tactics that I get to use. I also liked the idea of painting a Codex compliant chapter, but didn’t really want to paint Ultramarines.
One of the drawbacks to creating your own chapter is the iconography. For me, freehand icons are out of the question, and homemade transfers is another rabbit warren that I really didn’t want to go down.
Since pretty much everything standard Space Marine kit comes with only Ultramarine transfers, that only left me with one option. Omega.
As some of you may know, I’m quite a GW fanboy. GW was my introduction to the worlds of table top wargaming and no other miniature game has managed to grab my interest like a Games Workshop release.
But Games Workshop are not without their flaws, and while I can understand and forgive most of them, there is one policy that really grinds my gears; the missing scenery…
It’s been a while since my last entry in this series, (although some posts could have made it into it) but I’ve decided to bring it back so that I can update the blog a bit more frequently.
Just in time for Kill Team.
It is now the 12th of May 2018, the day of First Founding’s Mayhem tournament. That also means the deadline for my half year project.
