And so, it begins...

Hello all,

So I decided to finally take the plunge and join the "blogosphere", as they call it. Why, you ask? The clue is in the title - I am not yet done... with anything. I joined the hobby quite late - about 5-6 years ago, and every single army I've started (there have been a few), has ground to a halt at some point during it's production - be it modelling or painting, due to either lack of motivation, or the next new shiny thing that Games Workshop has stuck in front of my face... (yes, my name is Dave and I am a plastic-crack addict)

So, after having practically left the hobby for a few months to have a holiday in Console Land, I'm back and ready to go, but I'm going to need some help in keeping the effort up. I tried using my friend Chris as a "hobby buddy", where we would meet at least one night a week. Sadly, this did not work... too many "real life" issues to get in the way, so now I've turned to the ever-present interwebs for discipline.

That's right, if you've managed to read this far, you've been recruited as one of my Commissars. Bet you're excited...

So, the plan:

- Reconstructing and fleshing out my Dark Elves to a respectable painted force.

- Building an Imperial Guard army based on the Helghast.

I'll be posting a couple of rambles in the next week or so, with my ambitions, inspirations, etc... for each army, so if you feel lke it, stay tuned.

Now I'm going to go back to doing the work I'm being paid for... :D


  1. Welcome to the blogosphere Itkovian!

    Having seen some of your work in the past I've got to say I'm looking forward to seeing your Dark Elves and Helghast up on here. With the new Guard codex looming the Helghast could be a very very scary army.

  2. Ditto - welcome aboard. I'll link in to you on my blogroll later tonight, and though I'm not into computer gaming (strewth - I'd never leave the house!) I love the idea for your Guard army.

  3. Thank you very much guys, hope I can bring a contribution. Just got paid, so my first financial contribution is heading the way of pig-iron right now...
