So, a few weeks back I moved back to the UK and my laptop promptly broke. I’m currently making do with my ancient and unwieldy tablet which is not particularly good considering that it has no word processing capacity and the multitouch software is a little bit buggy. This meant that the two posts I tried to write using it were binned rather than posted, so I’m writing this on my Mum’s laptop. It’s kind of a pity that I’m disconnected at the moment as there’s so much going on.
First of all the Stormclaw boxset is out and I’ve split a set with my boyfriend. I’ve not seen it yet, seeing as it was sent to him and I’m currently at my folks’ house, but I’m looking forward to it, I need something to encourage me to paint more Space Wolves. The other thing that looks like it might encourage me to paint more Wolves are the current rumours that a new codex is coming very soon. I enjoy playing with my Space Wolves but I need a little new inspiration for models to paint.
Secondly, I’m back building and painting more Exodites. I spent some leftover Christmas money on a couple of kits and I’ve been busy using them for some conversions. I’ll post a little taster here. Sorry for the picture quality, again, I’m missing my laptop. The guy on the Cold One is going to be an Autarch on “Jetbike”. He deserves a post to himself when he’s finished so I’m not going into detail now but he was an impulse build after I flicked through the Eldar Codex and read the description of their wargear and found a use for one of the rather lovely Wood Elf Eternal Guard shields. The other guy is going to be a Guardian Jetbike rider, although I’ve used mostly Helion bits to build him. I like the fluff that says that Guardians are everyday Eldar from other paths who have answered the call to arms, so I’ve tried to make him look a little less staid and polished than his kin in the Shining Spears. The Terradon Riders kit also screams out for a less rigid rider than the Cold One Knights kit.
Finally, I should encourage you all to go my boyfriend’s new blog at www.redsquigracing.com. He’s my usual Orky opponent as regular readers might already know, and he’s finally set up a blog for his Orks, so go and take a read.
Hopefully I’ll have my computer back in a couple of weeks (with a brand new hard drive- ouch) and I’ll be able to get back into posting with the renewed vim and vigour, I’ve frankly been missing recently. Until then!
