So, as you can see from my avatar and the various threads on Cosplay, I used to love Warhammer 40,000.
For those not in the know, WH40k is a tabletop sci-fi battle RPG set in the very worst dystopian future possible which leads to great fun. It's been going 30 years this year, and as a result Games Workshop have released the new improved 8th edition rules.
About 20 years ago (3rd edition rules or thereabout) I gave up 40k gaming due to discovering the delights of beer, motorbikes and ladies who liked heavy metal
(but still read the many novels for fun)
Recently, in search of a hobby to keep us entertained, the missus decided we should have a crack at the new game....she liked it, we bought the new boxed set and both starting building our armies.
So: A key part of the hobby is building and painting your army.
The scale of these is 25-28mm in size, so mostly these are larger than actual size
Below are the first few I have painted in over 20 years....it seems the way I git gud and go all 'Bob Ross' of minature painting is to put the brush down for 2 decades
Hope you enjoy....I've got myself a new-old hobby
First couple of the new Primaris Space Marines I had a crack at- in Dark Angels livery (My favourite chapter of the God Emperor Of Mankind's glorious Adeptus Astartes)
Then I went mad and built the whole set and painted 'em all up
More pictures of my next projects to follow.
Warhammer 40000 is- basically- Lord Of The Rings on a cocktail of every drug known to man and genuine lunar dust, stuck in a blender with Alien, Mechwarrior, Dune, Starship Troopers, Fahrenheit 451 and Star Wars, bathed in blood, turned up to eleventy billion, set on fire, and catapulted off into space screaming "WAAAGH!" and waving a chainsaw sword- without the happy ending.
