I am disappointed with GW

I think I mentioned a few posts ago that I'd bought some chaos space marines - namely Thousand sons and Noise Marines. Well, I tried to put them together this week with a view to painting them at the weekend. I say tried because despite my trusty super-glue I could not get the arms to stick to the plastic bodies no matter how hard I tried or how loudly I cursed. I'm going to try again this weekend.

I was cheered up slightly by finishing my secrets of the third reich zombies. Without sounding big-headed 'm really proud of the way theu turned out. GW bleached bone highlighted with rotting flesh, then inked with Thaka green and finally brushed with army builder strong tone. It really makes them look rotting and I'll post some pics soon for comments. In fact I was so happy that i went out and bought another blister.

Next to the painting table are some skaven and dwarves for WHFB 8th edition which I picked up cheap from my local friendly gaming store.

Pause for thought.

I have been listening to old D6G podcasts and realised that I hadn't really noticed what good reviewers they are. Although they have a strict 'no hate' policy, they're not afraid to voice opinions on games that will win them no friends.

Other than that I'm slightly depressed by the lack of painting in the school holidays. The alure of sitting in the evening sun/rain with a cold beverage has been hard to resist, and even this is partly the D6G's fault. If they hadn't raved on about Harry Dresden, I wouldn't have read the first on and then had to buy all the others. Ah, beer and good book, almost as good as gaming
